Four years ago, Ben Gazal put everything on the line to start his own Real Estate business in Coolangatta. From humble beginnings with just himself and a receptionist, today, Harcourts BMG is thriving with 13 staff and the recent move to a bigger office in Griffith Street.
With a career in the real estate industry spanning 15 years, it was the opportunity to shape his own business with the right people around him that allowed Ben to find his ultimate comfort zone.
“It’s truly been a wonderful journey and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guidance of the principals I worked under as an agent,” he said.
After building a strong reputation in the area as an agent, Ben took the plunge and started Harcourts BMG with the feeling that the wider Coolangatta area still had plenty of growth ahead.
“It’s the diversity of people and property that makes the area so special.”
“We have people coming to the area from all over the world that can buy a $5 million penthouse or a house for $500,000.”
“Coolangatta adds a lifestyle that you can’t get from many other investment options in Australia, with an international airport at your doorstep but still a quiet beachside town that has a village type atmosphere. The performance history of Coolangatta as a place to invest has been reliable one.”
“The area has come so far over the past 5 to 10 years and still has more to give.”
“We simply want to build and nurture great relationships with our clients whilst at the same time be skilled and knowledgeable enough to give them a great result or just give them good advice.
“We want people to speak well of our company no matter whether we made a profit out of it or not.”
Looking to the future, Ben sees success filled with great people and long lasting relationships, driven by his mission, ‘it’s all about people'.
“Harcourts BMG has moved to a bigger office in anticipation of our plans and goals becoming a reality.”
“We are building and growing every week and this new office space will allow more room for great people to join us on the journey.”
