Even in a flat market, licensed real estate agency Property Ventures has boomed. So much so that the business has moved from Newmarket to bigger premises right in the heart of Auckland’s Ponsonby Road.
With thirteen experienced salespeople and staff scattered across New Zealand, the company is headed by Mark Honeybone, an investment strategist extraordinaire often sought after for his ability to quickly analyse a deal. He is well-known for his property podcast/YouTube series where he interviews property experts from around the country, providing advice and insights to hundreds of thousands of experienced and novice investors.
Investors also read his well-respected monthly column in NZ Property Investor.
Property Ventures started as a dedicated property finder service but has moved to a full-service agency with an extensive portfolio of property for sale. They have thousands of investors on their database who they can alert when sellers list with them, boosting the competitive buying pool to give clients a huge advantage that other agencies simply can’t offer.
Mark attributes the company’s rapid success to the fact his sales people are all owners and investors themselves. “Not only do they understand their clients’ property requirements and the process of buying and selling, but they are experienced negotiators with the smarts to get the best deal possible. Each is a business within a business and as mentor, I keep them on track, by updating and motivating them to ensure we provide the best real estate service in the business.”
