Current New Zealand Regional Owner Expanding Operations to Island Nation
DENVER, June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The holder of RE/MAX® Master Franchise rights in New Zealand has purchased the same rights for the Republic of Fiji and plans to expand the brand into that island nation as well, RE/MAX, LLC announced today. The buyer, Don Ha, who has developed a sizable regional presence in New Zealand, is also the franchise owner of RE/MAX Revolution in Auckland, NZ.
"With entrepreneurs like Don Ha on board, we believe the RE/MAX expansion throughout the South Pacific is set to continue at a solid pace," says Shawna Gilbert, Senior Vice President, RE/MAX Global and Commercial. "We've had a strong presence in Australia and New Zealand for years, and bringing RE/MAX into this cultural island nation should generate even more momentum. A presence in Fiji should heighten the RE/MAX brand, build local economies, and introduce a higher level of professionalism and production in the country's real estate industry."
Says Ha, "Bringing RE/MAX to Fiji will create more competition in the market, which serves everyone's interests. For those already in the industry, RE/MAX presents a different way of conducting business; for those interested in getting into real estate as a career, RE/MAX offers intriguing possibilities; and for those interested in buying and selling real estate, RE/MAX delivers solutions and better outcomes."
Ha says professionally this expansion will allow for a reciprocal referral exchange and broader global awareness campaign. Additionally, both Ha and RE/MAX New Zealand Chief Operating Officer, Mala Maharaj, have family ties to Fiji. "RE/MAX Fiji is more than expanding into a new region," Ha says. "It is like a homecoming."
Ha has been listing and selling real estate since 1995 and joined the RE/MAX network as a Broker/Owner in 2017.
