Global real estate agency Century 21 is moving in on central Auckland, having already well established itself in the North, South and East of the city.
Century 21 New Zealand
national manager, Geoff Barnett
says the move is already paying off with significant listings and sales.
“Our unbeatable international reach is a huge attraction for those wanting to sell high-end properties or wanting to attract some serious investors.
“Our website now lists pages of inner-city apartments in Auckland and we’re securing more multi-million dollar central Auckland properties.”
One agent Ryan Mitchell said they are getting a “tremendous response” in the city.
“We are now involved in marketing the 51 Ramada Residential Suites in Victoria Street, we’re selling significant sites for redevelopment such as in Royal Oak, not to mention listing large executive townhouses in St Georges Bay Road and blue-chip $7m properties in the eastern suburbs. These are really exciting times for our company.”
Barnett said their focus on Auckland’s central area forms a key part of the company’s growth drive across New Zealand.
He says nationwide the company is expecting more franchise openings, following four new office openings late last year.
“Our business and brand are only getting stronger in New Zealand, which is the result of some very determined business development and lifting our profile in the marketplace. In addition to new franchise opportunities, we’re enjoying strong internal growth with many of our existing offices expanding and plenty of experienced and successful agents now joining us.
“As well as a greater presence in central Auckland, we’re seeing incredible growth coming out of our offices in the likes of Wellington, Albany and Te Awamutu. In fact, nationwide our listings are up over 50% compared to the same time last year, and unlike others this is largely due to new listings not languishing ones.”
