About Us


Raine & Horne South West Rocks is the longest established real estate office in South West Rocks. The business was established by Mr Gordon Elrington, a renowned Macleay River businessman who operated the business with Mr Jack Needs, another well known local identity.

Upon Gordon’s retirement in 1974 Mr Needs took over ownership of the business and operated as Jack Needs Real Estate. When Jack retired in 1986 he handed over the reins to his son Tim who became the third generation of real estate involvement in his family.

In 1991 David Maxwell, who had been working in the real estate industry in Kempsey since 1980, became the new owner. David saw the benefits of being associated with a multi-national company and so the business became Raine & Horne South West Rocks.

In 1994 Geoff Ironfield became a partner in the business and was followed by Mark Foster in 1998. David Geoff and Mark are still operating as the three directors of the company today.

David Maxwell, Geoff Ironfield & Mark Foster are the principals and salespeople of Raine & Horne South West Rocks.
