Marie Raos

Licensee Salesperson
Ray White Howick

Marie is unique in so many aspects of real estate that it just seems natural she would consistently achieve the highest accolades available to licensed salespeople within the Ray White brand. Marie understands the importance of really listening to her client's needs and the values they seek when selecting an agent to sell their property. With a BA in English Education and Psychology and Diploma in Speech Language Therapy, she believes there's an art to asking the right questions and to never make assumptions. With these strong communication skills and a great memory for names and faces, Marie has always worked in people-focused positions. 

With over 27 years in real estate with the Ray White Howick office, she has poured 100% commitment into her role and built an incredible network of contacts and an enviable database. With so much success over the years, it’s no surprise that Marie’s repeat and referral business is huge. Many families in the Eastern Bays wouldn't think of approaching anybody but Marie to sell their home and as humbling as it may be for Marie, such loyalty breeds success. Being consistently one of the company's top performers, she has gained recognition with multiple high achiever awards, year after year. 

Marie grew up in Howick and has worked in the Eastern Bays most of her life. Her extensive knowledge of the area is overwhelming and with a confident, fun-loving personality, she is always pleased to help others by sharing this knowledge. Family is important to Marie with her two children and 5 precious grandchildren being pivotal to the true essence of her personal and professional life. When time allows, she loves interior design, cooking, entertaining, travel and walking her precious Westie Molly.

Whilst Marie is a strong individual, she enjoys working as part of a tight, efficient and effective team - “Team Raos” and Marie would be the first to acknowledge the enormous commitment each member brings to the overall Team success. Handpicked for their incredible industry strengths, experience and professionalism, our vendors are offered the ultimate level of service, provided by any one of the extended Team Raos members. What we bring to the table are multiple languages, legal and compliance expertise, a buyer’s agent and even our own qualified Branch Manager. All these contributing factors allow us to provide our vendors and purchasers with the knowledge they are well covered for all contingencies which occur over the entire process of transacting real estate.

Engaging with Marie and the team on a professional basis, at a level far in excess of what is perceived to be ‘industry’ standard, you can be assured that the entire team has the exceptional skills and experience necessary to move you to the next chapter in your life whether you are selling or purchasing.

Team Raos shares a collaborative approach to marketing and believe that all properties benefit from a high profile. However, whatever the Team lists, from small units to multi-million dollar executive properties, Marie acknowledges that it is usually the client’s biggest asset, so we give it our all.

You deserve the best chance to achieve the ultimate result by engaging with an “Elite” team who truly listen to your needs and steps up to the plate.

We chose Marie and Richard to market and sell our house as dealings we had had with them previously over the last few years had been really positive. We were thrilled with the level of service, knowledge, and general support they gave us and prospective buyers of our property. Their communication and sense of humour was awesome and made our journey so much easier. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone with real estate requirements.

Marie Roas is one of those one in a million agents you come across. The process of auction made all the more pleasurable due to this lady. Marie is a true professional, extremely knowledgeable and it’s obvious her years in real estate and wealth of experience make her a top agent in her field.
