Two of Sydney’s most sought-after new suburbs are North Kellyville and Box Hill; and Harcourts is proud to announce that two of the most highly regarded real estate professionals in the Hill District are opening an office there today.
Raj Bhandari is the brains behind the sales operation and Rajwant Kaur is the leader of their significant property management business.
After a decade together at Starr Partners, Raj and Rajwant and their 13 team members are celebrating their #betterinblue future.
Harcourts CEO of Growth, Adrian Knowles, says Raj and Rajwant are ambitious property professionals who have a track record of turning great people into talented agents and managers.
“Raj and Rajwant run one of the best offices in the Hills District, which is one of Sydney’s most popular real estate districts for young families and professionals,” Mr Knowles said.
“There is a huge influx of new properties in that area, with major tracts of land being developed into projects. Rajwant and Raj want to capitalise on this expanding property market and have a clear vision of where they want to be in ten years time.”
Raj says the Harcourts brand allows the team to promote themselves in a way that has an impact.
“Being genuinely local and recognisable is really important to our clients, and the Harcourts brand is a brand that is widely recognised as reliable and innovative.’
Raj spent over a decade as a mortgage broker before starting in real estate, and Rajwant is best known for her brilliant restaurant Biviano’s at Dural which her husband still runs today.
“Customer service is key to great property management, and as a result of my experience in hospitality and our ability to attract savvy team members we’ve been able to grow our portfolio of managements significantly,” Rajwant says, “Most of our investors are Hills local, and with the increase in new apartments and townhouses in the area, the move to Harcourts is an important stepping stone for us to grow the team to service that increasing rental market.”
Raj says North Kellyville is undergoing a major transformation, and Harcourts Kellyville is well placed to support the transaction of those new properties.
“We have achieved some great results for developments in our area, and are currently selling new townhouses and apartments in nearby Box Hill. This is a critical part of the market, and the shared vision of our team of 30 is to excel in this space,” Raj said.
The aspect of their business that makes them proudest is the people they’ve mentored into industry leadership.
“We don’t take experienced salespeople into our team. We invite industry rookies with fresh perspectives and work with them to achieve their potential. The number two agent in Kellyville is in our team, and that makes us prouder than anything.”
The last time their team celebrated an office opening, 500 people came through their front door. Thanks to lockdown, this celebration will be held via zoom.
