Terrigal empty-nesters enjoy a winning week with some help from Raine & Horne
Itâ€™s been a massive week for Terrigal empty-nesters Mike and Mary Hood.
The couple, who have been married since 1973, sold their luxury four bedroom townhouse at 63/41 Terrigal Drive, Terrigal for $752,500, and became grandparents for the seventh time, with the birth of grandson Miles Edward Wright.
But itâ€™s often said that luck runs in threes, and the fortunate couple are also the big winners of Raine & Horneâ€™s â€œGet your ducks in a rowâ€? competition.
The competition, run in collaboration with co-sponsor, Raine & Horneâ€™s financial services arm Your Broker, gave one lucky Australian homeowner(s) the opportunity to win $50,000 by exclusively listing their property for sale with the leading real estate firm.
The prize is part of Raine & Horneâ€™s first consumer campaign for 2014, which ran across a number of platforms including digital, local area marketing and print advertising, as well as a strategic run on the 7 and 9 networks.
Over the three month campaign period, Ducks in a Row resonated with Raine & Horneâ€™s agents, with over 2.5 million direct mail pieces delivered to letter boxes across Australia.
â€œWe also had 67,000 views of the ad on YouTube, and in excess of 3.5 million digital impressions across a mix of websites and pre-roll video, as well as a multitude of social media interactions,â€? said Angus Raine, Chairman/CEO of Raine & Horne, who visited Mike and Mary Hood at their home in Terrigal this week to present the winning cheque.
According to Mike Hood, a former high-school teacher, turned education consultant, specialising in the National Assessment Program â€“ Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN), he was surprised to receive a call from Angus Raine about the coupleâ€™s amazing win.
â€œI was gobsmacked when I checked the answering machine to find a message from Angus Raine. I just couldnâ€™t believe that he was ringing me about the sale of a townhouse in Terrigal,â€? said Mike Hood, who also works on a consultancy basis for the University of NSW.
â€œAngus Raine asked whether I remembered the Ducks in a Row competition â€“ my agent Cameron Clayton from Raine & Horne Terrigal/Avoca had discussed it with me and helped us sign up for the competition.
â€œI have to admit we were sceptical when we received Angusâ€™s call,but occasionally wonderful things like this happen.â€?
Mary Hood, who is the pharmacist at Blooms Pharmacy in Saratoga, said, â€œWe want to thank Raine & Horne and Your Broker tremendously, not to mention Cameron. Without him getting involved, this wouldnâ€™t have happened for us.
â€œSo, well done all round for running the competition and the way itâ€™s turned out. Even now, I still canâ€™t believe it.â€?
As for their plans for the winnings, Mike and Mary, who moved to the Central Coast from Sydney in 1976, will shout their three children and their families to a holiday at Lake Cathie, a town about 15 minutes south of Port Macquarie.
â€œWeâ€™ve always holidayed at Lake Cathie since the children were younger, and we thought we should use some of the winnings to take them there for 10 days,â€? said Mike Hood.
The sale of their Terrigal home, with the help of Raine & Horne Terrigal-Avoca Beach, also means the Hoods need to get their skates on to find a new property, with Terrigal or Avoca the most likely destinations.
â€œWe were negotiating to buy a block of land in Terrigal, but building another home, we feel, is a bridge too far,â€? added Mike Hood.
â€œWeâ€™ve built two houses in our lifetimes and weâ€™re too old to go through that scenario again and are now looking to buy a suitable property in Terrigal or Avoca.â€?
Brett Hunter, General Manager of Raine & Horne Terrigal-Avoca Beach, is also thrilled that the prize went to a Central Coast couple.
â€œIt was always going to be fabulous if the winners could come from this region, especially as my team at Raine & Horne Terrigal-Avoca Beach have got right behind the campaign from Day 1,â€? said Brett Hunter.
â€œSo, when our CEO Angus Raine rang me with details of Michael and Maryâ€™s win, and told me he was coming to Terrigal to present the cheque to them, I was over the moon.â€?
The campaign, which was co-sponsored by Raine & Horneâ€™s mortgage broking arm, Your Broker, has also proved a major success as a new business initiative, according to General Manager, Matthew Brown.
â€œWe have spoken to plenty of potential new clients and we are just so proud to be able to support the 131 year-old Raine & Horne network,â€? said Matthew Brown.
â€œThe campaign has generated between a 5% and 10% increase in new business enquiries for the Your Broker network.â€?
As for Mike and Mary Hood, after selling a house, welcoming a new grandson and winning a once in a lifetime prize in the space of seven days, theyâ€™re looking forward to a â€˜week of boredomâ€™ to help them get their breath back.
