New Harcourts Office in Gateway to Stunning Central Otago
The popular small township of Ranfurly known as the gateway to Central Otago, is now boasting its first ever major real estate brand office with the recent official opening of a new Harcourts office.
Harcourts Ranfurly has been opened by Murray Brown to complement his existing offices in Cromwell and Alexandra. Run by Senior Harcourts Consultant, Dick Anderson, the team includes local real estate expert John Cotton who has worked independently in the area for 20 years.
The main street office has windows displaying property from the area as far as Ranfurly, Naseby, Kokano, St Bathans, Wedderburn, Cromwell, Alexandra, Clyde and Roxborough and Mr Anderson said the local response had been “absolutely brilliant. Our property display windows have become of real interest to both local residents and the many visitors to the area’s tourist attractions including the internationally renowned Otago Rail Trail which runs right through the town.”
Mr Anderson said Ranfurly had become very popular in recent years amongst those looking for a lifestyle change and a holiday base thanks to its growing attractions and stunning landscape popularised by people like artist Grahame Sydney. A soon to be opened international curling rink for Naseby along with future proposed developments including the re-establishment of Lake Taieri for irrigation and recreational use and the possibility of the development of a new skifield on Mt St Bathans are expected to make the area even more popular.
Mr Anderson added that thanks to the good local hospital and other services enjoyed by its population of 900, Ranfurly was also seen as an attractive place to retire with a good quality home available for around $125,000. And as the region with the country’s largest diary farm of 4,500 cows, he was also expecting to see the agriculture sector develop further.
CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson, said “We are delighted to be established in Ranfurly as part of our drive to be present in every viable marketplace in New Zealand. Our office in Ranfurly is perfectly located to service the increasing number of people who have discovered the wonderful lifestyle and environment the area has to offer.”
