Century 21 is breaking the mould with its new real estate office in the booming suburb of Box Hill in Sydney’s North West.
The Century 21 Leading RE office will led by principal Viren Sharma, and supported by a diverse team of local experts.
Mr Sharma said C21 Leading RE Box Hill offered a different proposition from traditional real estate offices.
“Here at C21 Box Hill, we offer a consultative approach, enabling us to become trusted advisors to our customers,” Mr Sharma said.
“We’ll do this by providing an all-encompassing offering, including in-house marketing, legal and IT services.”
Mr Sharma brings a wealth of experience to the office, having joined the real estate industry eight years ago, following an illustrious finance career, and business ownership.
“I commenced my career in banking and finance with NAB and had the privilege of working at the ASX (Australian Stock Exchange) for about eight years in various roles across the equities and derivatives area,” he said.
“I also had the opportunity to own and run my own hospitality business which provided me with a greater understanding in the important areas of service and customer relations.”
The skills Mr Sharma developed within these roles were transitional, he said, and would be beneficial in his new role as principal of C21’s new Box Hill office.
Box Hill is a rapidly developing suburb, Mr Sharma said, with a strong real estate market, likely due to the scarcity of land.
“The median house price for a three-bedroom house is $1 million and still growing,” Mr Sharma said.
“First home buyers, investors and second/third home buyers are looking to live in a great community environment with open space.
“There is huge potential for future growth as the new infrastructure, shopping centres, schools and parks are getting delivered within the next few years.
“More people are aspiring to move into the Hills council area to take advantage of the great schools and and safe community environment.”
Mr Sharma said he felt privileged to be part of a team of mediators within a property transaction, and doing so with the C21 brand made the experience that much more positive.
“Century 21 is a global real estate brand that is highly familiar to consumers and property investors,” he said.
“C21 has the scale and brand reputation to continue to lead the real estate industry into the future. That’s a key reason why we chose to join Century 21.
Mr Sharma said with the support of C21 and the dedication of his team, he expected big things for the future.
“It’s important to stay humble and work hard, and together these will ensure that results follow,” he said.
“Of course, our business goals are to achieve sales and property management targets, but by remaining committed to providing top service, and looking after the interest of all our customers, with local community support, we will naturally achieve those goals.”
Last year saw impressive growth for the C21 brand, with the addition of 18 new franchises. James Bell, CEO Century 21, shared how this is set to continue this year.
“Last year, we were exceptionally proud to grow the network with an additional 18 new locations, especially given the challenges the year brought. We have no plans to slow down though, with a healthy pipeline of new locations set to open this year.” said Mr Bell.
