Otahuhu is perfectly positioned for a great 2018 when it comes to the property market, says the new owner of Harcourts Otahuhu, Mushtaq Sheikh.
Mushtaq says developments in Otahuhu itself, as well as its proximity to the busy and rapidly developing areas of Mangere, Papatoetoe and Mt Wellington mean Otahuhu is primed for its own year of growth and development.
“I really want Harcourts Otahuhu to be a part of what I see as a fantastic part of Auckland, that more people should know about,” he says.
With that in mind Mushtaq has relocated the Harcourts Otahuhu office to bigger and better premises at 2A/507 Great South Rd – with plenty of free parking for customers.
The move is more than just a new office for Mushtaq, who is stepping into real estate business ownership after more than 13 years as an extremely successful sales consultant in and around Otahuhu.
“Real estate is my passion and I have 13 years of knowledge of Otahuhu and the surrounding area. I am very excited about being able to combine the two in this business.
“The potential for this area is huge, and I look forward to working closely with people in this community to help them meet their property needs,” he says.
At present Harcourts Otahuhu is staffed by seven local sales consultants, who are all extremely knowledgeable about the local area, Mushtaq says, but is aiming to grow that team to 15 as a priority.
“Our goal this year is to fill this office with qualified, experience agents who are committed to Otahuhu and the surrounding area.
“We are a one-stop shop for buying and selling both residential and commercial property, as well as property management, providing all our clients with faithful, efficient and reliable services.”
Harcourts CEO Chris Kennedy says he is excited to see Mushtaq make the move into owning a Harcourts franchise.
“Mushtaq really knows the Otahuhu area inside out, and clients of Harcourts Otahuhu really benefit from that.
“I think Mushtaq and his growing team are in a great position to help people realise their property dreams in Otahuhu.”
