One Agency has expanded its network with four new offices — two in Sydney and two in Victoria.
With the launch of the new offices, the company has appointed new hires to run their helms.
The trans-Tasman real estate network welcomed four further members in June, with its head of Australasian membership, John Stewart, confirming that “agreements are being finalised for at least that number to join during July”.
Close to the brand’s Brookvale base will be the opening of two new Sydney businesses.
Heading up its Kings Langley office is Scott Bowles, who is returning to the real estate industry after a hiatus of about four years, when he went into purchase inventory management for Mrs. Fields Australia.
“Scott’s considerable experience in the hospitality and food industries equip him well for today’s challenging real estate market, where communication, people skills and negotiating ability are more critical than ever,” Mr Stewart said.
“Scott also now holds the record for the speed of his set-up; from signing his agreement through to market launch, he took a mere nine days, reflecting his professionalism and our model’s focus on simple fundamentals and excellence in systems.”
Across the city in Lakemba, Mr Rawful Arafat and his wife Ayesha Siddiqua will launch an office later this month, with an immediate focus on developing rent roll.
“Ayesha brings experience in all facets of property management, and backed by Arafat’s long career in sales and marketing, we see them quickly becoming a go-to rental force in offering enhanced value to investors,” he said.
In the South East of Victoria, Dean Jones will head up the office in Leongatha.
“Dean brings a strong record in real estate on the back of a lengthy career managing advertising and marketing agencies in Australia and internationally,” Mr Stewart said.
In addition, Dean MacFarlane will extend One Agency’s reach into Baw Baw Shire, in Victoria, from the Warragul office.
“With strong business experience prior to creating a presence in the real estate sales market, we anticipate that Dean will quickly extend the brand’s reach across his market,” Mr Stewart added.
Mr Stewart also mentioned that One Agency is rolling out a variation on its individual and office-based licensing system, which he anticipates the first of many new operations to take up in July.
One Agency CEO and founder Paul Davies said the innovation has been trialled in Australia and New Zealand, with Victoria seeing this revised approach successfully launched.
“We see a great many more of this extension or ‘pod licence’ model to be issued in the coming months and years, affording existing, strong members the chance to greatly extend their operational reach,” Mr Davies said.
