POST WAR OPTIMISM The Second World War had decimated and damaged all businesses. Suddenly there was post war optimism. Businesses could now be rebuilt. Ray’s son Alan joined the business that had been severely restricted during the war years. Market leadership was wide open. Alan’s hands on drive and energy was what was needed. He was the right man in the right place. Alan embraced Ray’s instinctual understanding of the value of property marketing. Ray White had become a stand out agency in the 1950s.
