After four years with the business, Samantha has taken over the Rural Kilcoy office while Jill continues to oversee neighbouring Ray White Rural Woodford.

Within just six months of joining the tight-knit team, Samantha had already started out as an agent on her own and said the leadership move was a natural progression. 

“I began in the business as Jill’s associate and with her mentorship, I was able to break out on my own quite quickly,” Samantha said.

“I’m a people person and love the competitive nature of real estate. It’s so rewarding to be able to get a good deal for my clients, whether they are buying or selling.

“With the transition, it will still be the same familiar faces but I have a lot of energy and ambition that I bring to the table and am really excited to use that drive to take Ray White Rural Kilcoy to the next level.”

The Somerset region has seen tremendous growth in the past three years with buyers from metro areas in south-east Queensland flocking to the area. 

“You can get so much more for your buck here and we’ve got more clients coming from the coast out this way because they want that small town lifestyle,” she said. 

“Before Covid, it was mainly just locals transacting but now we have more people than ever coming in from metro areas.” 

Outgoing business owner Jill Garth, who is staying on as principal of Ray White Rural Woodford, said she was excited to see Samantha step into her shoes at Rural Kilcoy.

“Samantha has so much to offer the area as a business owner, she is driven and passionate about the region and helping her local community,” Jill said.

“She has excelled as a leader and salesperson in the business and I am looking forward to continuing to work with her in this new position.”

Ray White Rural managing director Stephen Nell congratulated Samantha and thanked Jill for her hard work as principal of Rural Kilcoy

“We are thrilled to welcome Samantha as principal of Ray White Rural Kilcoy and know with her fresh energy and enthusiasm she will continue to take the business from strength-to-strength,” he said.

“I thank Jill for her dedication and know she will continue to position Ray White Rural Woodford as a strong business in the area.

“I look forward to celebrating their success and have no doubt they will continue to be assets to the group.”
