Avi Khan: How to build high-performing teams

In the space of just 4 years, Avi Khan has been able to build three of the fastest growing real estate agencies in Brisbane as well as a property law firm.

The former lawyer puts much of his success down to his ability to recruit and build high-performing teams who all buy into what he’s trying to achieve.

In this interview with Ray White Group Head of Performance, Tim Snell, Avi explains how he’s been able to develop a strong company culture that breeds success in a short space of time and what others can do to mimic his approach.

They also discuss why it’s so critical to have a growth mindset in all aspects of real estate and why people that join your team need to fit in with the company ethos.

If you’re a director or principal looking to grow your business and become a leading agency, this interview will show you exactly what steps to take to get there.

“If you choose to leave us you’re not going to leave with a lawsuit you’re going to leave with a bouquet of flowers. You’re taking your database with you, you’re taking your listings with you and we’re going to help you along the way. If you have that mindset, people will come to you.” – Avi Khan
