Principal Spotlight | Ray White Wilston

No property is out of bounds for Alistair Macmillan who has just entered his 20th year as a leading local expert in the real estate industry. As the Principal of Ray White Wilston, he brings the rural values of honesty, genuineness and transparency he gained from his small-town upbringing to his trade here in the city. Living in the same area, Alistair has mainly sold in the local zones of Wilston, Windsor and Grange, and is a specialist when it comes to knowing the regions inside and out. Additionally, Alistair’s success shines through his multiple industry awards. “I genuinely feel agents underestimate how influential they are in the outcome,” he says.

There’s no doubt Ray White Wilston pride themselves on their great culture, attracting and retaining amazing staff. Alistair believes it’s those people who set the office apart, as well as their auctions. “We run more auctions than most offices and enjoy one of the highest clearance rates in the country, which is something I’m very proud of,” he says. Furthermore, Ray White Wilston is about to embark on their biggest transformation to become one of the finest offices in the country. With a purpose built in-room auction facility, large digital billboard and capacity for over thirty agents, their new office will be as high quality as their service.
