Rapidly expanding Australasian network One Agency has announced the appointment of Bayshore Real Estate Fiji’s three offices to their network – the brand’s first members in the Pacific Islands.
The association was confirmed at Bayshore’s annual awards dinner in Lautoka, attended by and the brand will be rolled out in Nadi, Lautoka and Suva over the next few weeks.
One Agency Bayshore Fiji will be headed up by Arif Khan, an experienced residential and commercial real estate agent who returned to his homeland five years ago after owning a business in California for close on two decades.
“Having been part of an innovative and fast growing brand in my USA businesses, I knew that was the kind of organisation I wanted to associate with here,” Mr Khan said.
“One Agency delivers that and the model is fiscally sustainable, a critical factor certainly.”
Mr Khan said his teams are delighted to be part of One Agency and through that, to have gained reach into the Australian and New Zealand markets, particularly given the residential and commercial value that the Fijian government is now offering overseas purchasers and investors.
One Agency’s Head of Australasian Membership, John Stewart said he looked forward to working with the new team in Fiji, and that they were fortunate to have as experienced a leader as Mr Khan.
“Arif has built a very strong business these past few years and with the current team is poised to become a major force in the Fiji market, something we’re right behind,” Mr Stewart said.
“We’re working on a number of other international opportunities and the model we’ve created with Arif, for Fiji , will be the framework for that expansion.”
The move into the Pacific Islands was a logical evolution for the brand, according to One Agency CEO and Founder Paul Davies, who confirmed the business was currently talking with interested parties in a range of nations and island groups.
“The island nations are vibrant real estate economies, often already hosting Australasian franchise offices, plus strong local independents, so the value proposition of One Agency is as valid there as in Australia or New Zealand, possibly even more so,” Mr Davies said.
