Article on REB, by Orana Durney-Benson
With over two decades spent working in the harbourside suburb, JT Allen Double Bay’s new general manager is back at it in the Sydney locale.
JT Allen Double Bay has revealed its appointment of Sarah Bester as the general manager of the family-owned operation.
With 20 years managing offices across Double Bay and Sydney’s Lower North Shore under her belt, these are familiar waters for Ms Bester.
The leading manager has called this the culmination of a longstanding relationship not just with the area, but with the JT Allen management team as well. Most notably, with JT Allen managing director Joshua Allen.
Ms Bester shared that she has known the operator for 16 years, before revealing: “Together, we are looking to grow JT Allen Real Estate and nurture long-term relationships with our clients.”
“I have helped launch the careers of many of the most celebrated agents in the eastern suburbs by supporting their goals, one of which was Josh Allen, whose values and ethics align with mine,” Ms Bester continued.
Mr Allen returned the sentiment, stating: “Sarah has an incredible track record of excellence, dedication and commitment to the real estate industry, and we’re beyond excited and proud to welcome her to the JT Allen team.”
“Her experience and knowledge are unmatched and her appointment to general manager at JT Allen is crucial to furthering our growth and long-term success,” he added.
A Lower North Shore local, Ms Bester has previously been reported as overseeing over $1 billion of property sales, and more than 2,000 transactions during her 20 years at Ray White Double Bay, before making a move across the bridge to Raine & Horne Lower North Shore.
The agent now wants to turn her attention towards supporting up-and-coming agencies, saying that it is her “motivation to provide support for talented, growing teams, so I’m delighted to be joining Josh and the team at this pivotal time”.
