Marie Raos

Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Howick

One of the rare few real estate career people actually trained in communication, Marie Raos knows the importance of really listening to her client's needs. Having worked as a speech therapist after gaining her BA in English Education and Psychology, she believes there's an art to asking the right questions and never making assumptions. With strong communication skills and a great memory for names and faces, Marie has always worked in people-focused positions.

Having over 23 years in real estate with the Ray White Howick office, she has poured 100% commitment into the job and built an incredible network of contacts and her repeat referral business is huge.  Many families in the Eastern Bays wouldn't think of approaching anybody but Marie to sell their home and such loyalty breeds success.  Marie is consistently one of the company’s top performers and she has gained recognition with many high achiever awards.

While she’s a strong individual, Marie enjoys working as part of a “tight” team.  “Team Raos” consisting of Dayle Sharland - Client Manager and Sales, Jo Morris - Sales Associate, Kim Shen (Mandarin speaking) - Sales Associate and Sue Bentley - Administrator and also the wider team at Ray White.

Marie grew up in Howick and has worked in the Eastern Bays most of her life and her knowledge of the area is vast.  With her confident, fun-loving personality, she is always pleased to help others by sharing her knowledge.  Marie was married to Ivan Raos for almost 40 years until he very sadly and suddenly passed away in April 2014.  They have two adult children and now a son-in-law and more recently a precious first granddaughter!  Family and home are important to her.  She loves interior design, cooking, entertaining, travel (when there's time) and walking her precious “Westies” Issy and Molly.

Her passion is marketing for she believes all properties benefit from a high profile, yet she’s careful where she spends her client’s money.  Whatever she lists, from small units to multi-million dollar executive properties, she acknowledges that it is usually the clients biggest asset, so she gives it her all.

For a consistent top achiever who can truly listen to your needs

We could not fault Marie and her team. They did an exceptional job in marketing our property. Selling our house through them was a very pleasant and rewarding experience.

great service and backup from the TEAM

Tim

Marie was focused on the end result - getting as many people interested in the auction as possible and doing everything she could to achieve the best result for the vendor. As our current move is to a two bedroom apartment in a retirement village, we will not be using Ray White's services in the future otherwise it would have been highly likely.

Douglas George Goldthorpe

Totally professional in every way

John

Marie, has been great. She's assertive without being pushy. Marie comes across warm, approachable and sincere. At times a little hard to get in contact with. I Wish she could be in Sydney to find us a home. She did what she said she would do.

William John (Bill) Kingsley

Marie Raos recently marketed and sold at auction our Mellons Bay home of 38 years. Marie gave us excellent advice and with her professionalism and easy manner she made our first selling experience as stress free as possible. The 4 week marketing campaign achieved a very pleasing result, and we would highly recommend Marie and her team.

Jan and Norm Hill

'Marie worked with her amazing team to make the whole process of selling the family home as easy and stress free as possible for us. From initial appraisal, to sale of house at auction and finally settlement, Marie guided us with a comprehensive plan of how the sale process would work. She is very professional, with her experience in Real Estate and her local knowledge she knows the market very well. Marie obviously loves what she does and this is reflected in her friendly manner, tireless energy and enthusiasm as demonstrated at the open homes she arranged. We have got to know Marie very well and would like to thank her and the team for their help and support with the sale of our home. Selling a home can be a daunting and emotional process at times, we can fully recommend Marie and her team to look after you and help you through the whole process.'
