PRO­MOT­ING WA TO CHINA MAR­KET

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

LO­CAL prop­erty agency Welling­ton Bar­ber Real Es­tate will be the first and only WA busi­ness to ex­hibit a range of prop­er­ties at an in­dus­try event in China late this month, pro­mot­ing Perth prop­er­ties to Chi­nese in­vestors and home­buy­ers.

The 6th Guangzhou In­ter­na­tional Qual­ity Life­style and Prop­erty Expo, which runs May 22 to 24, of­fers buy­ers the op­por­tu­nity to pe­ruse over­seas projects and meet with real es­tate pro­fes­sion­als from all over the world, in­clud­ing Australia.

Welling­ton Bar­ber Real Es­tate said their in­volve­ment in the event had al­ready piqued the in­ter­est of prop­erty de­vel­op­ers in China.

“Dur­ing our time there, we have ar­ranged to meet with two sub­stan­tial prop­erty de­vel­op­ers who are keen to be in­volved in joint ven­ture projects in Perth,” Welling­ton Bar­ber prop­erty con­sul­tant Ch­eryl Oprandi said.

“We will send team mem­bers who con­verse flu­ently in Man­darin and Can­tonese to man our booths at the event, in­clud­ing four Perth-based real es­tate agents and a migration agent.”

There will also be an ANZ bank rep­re­sen­ta­tive as well as an in­ter­preter pro­vided by the or­gan­is­ers.

Welling­ton Bar­ber is also work­ing with Tourism WA and China South­ern Air­lines to pro­mote WA, along­side its prop­er­ties, to the 100,000 peo­ple ex­pected to visit the expo.

“Cur­rently, all the prop­er­ties we are pro­mot­ing are from large de­vel­op­ers, such as Buil­ton, Wat­son Prop­erty Group and Han­dle Prop­erty Group,” Ms Oprandi said.

“We have a num­ber of smaller, in­de­pen­dent de­vel­op­ers and quite a few busi­nesses who have listed their prod­uct with us, rang­ing from $299,000 to $55 mil­lion.”

Welling­ton Bar­ber agents Alice Chang, Ter­rence Chan and Ch­eryl Oprandi will

head to the event at the end of the month.
