Two commercial real estate agencies in the nation’s capital have joined forces.
Ray White Commercial Canberra and Notaras Commercial have merged, with the latter’s principal Eleni Notaras joining the team as part-owner, while also taking on the role of director of property management.
Ms Notaras not only becomes the first female executive to join the business, but also one of the few women in an executive role in a Canberra commercial real estate agency.
With 20 years of experience working in the residential and commercial property industry, as well as actively serving as an ACT division council member of the Property Council of Australia, Ms Notaras is well versed in the local property market.
She is looking forward to rejoining the brand she worked at for eight years as a senior commercial property investment manager.
“I’m very excited about the future for the business and of course for myself both personally and professionally,” she said.
“Joining a great team and developing those person-to-person and business relationships with the clients is something I really look forward to.”
Ms Notaras added that she was eager to continue her advocacy for the property industry in her new role, saying how she has “always been interested in letting people know how great the property industry is for career opportunities, and to mentor and train new people into the industry”.
“I’ve always been part of the Property Council of Australia’s National Mentoring Program which has been very rewarding and shown how diverse the job opportunities are.”
Commenting on the merger, Ray White Commercial Canberra’s principal Ben Faulks commended both teams’ cooperation in making the process as seamless as possible.
“Eleni comes from a 35-year-old family business that believes in honesty, integrity and the very best customer service, and the Ray White Group has shared those similar values for 120 years,” he said.
Mr Faulks outlined how the brand’s leaders all have aligned values and principles, and Ms Notaras falls under this umbrella.
Commenting on what she adds to the business, he said: “Eleni’s commitment to her clients and her work is evident in the reputation she has built within the industry and the broader Canberra community.
“We are excited to have her as a partner in the Ray White Commercial Canberra business moving forward.”
Andrew Freeman, Ray White Commercial head of agency operations, agreed, stating how “Eleni’s wealth of knowledge and experience in Canberra’s commercial real estate make her an invaluable asset.
“Ray White Commercial Canberra continues to grow, and I’m excited to see Eleni add to the strength of the business in her role as business owner and director of property management.”
