Ben moves back to the Clarence

SINCE moving to the Clarence Valley about three years ago, Ben Hottes has well and truly made a life for himself here.

“All of my wife’s family is from Grafton and I have had family in the area for about 20 years,” he said.

Recently, Ben has had a bit of a career change and taken up a position in sales and marketing at Ray White Real Estate.

“I have been at Ray White for about two months and it has been great. My wife and I have our first baby due in about six weeks so it has been a pretty exciting time,” he said.

Before coming to Grafton, Ben lived ‘all over the country’ and has had a range of jobs. He spent eight years in the defence force as a technician and three years in mining.

“I came back because of all of the family connections and I really do love the region,” Ben said.
