TAP 17. Take a peek inside a dynamic real estate startup. A Podcast For Real Estate Agents

I’m sure you’ve noticed One Agency, the innovative real estate brand that’s come out of nowhere to shake up the established real estate franchise model in Australia.

One Agency CEO Paul Davies brings a lifetime of real estate experience to his new brand and has quickly built a following of very capable business leaders looking for change and innovation.

With the average real estate business in Australia reporting a profit of just 15 percent, Paul’s mission and dominating focus is to help establish competent real estate business owners into a business that is both effective and economical and you’ll hear him share the news that a number of One Agency business owners recording profits up to 85 percent after operating costs.

The raw attraction of One Agency is a proven business model that makes sense. By breaking away from the traditional real estate agency template, One Agency business owners get to keep much more of what they earn.

Paul subscribes to a philosophy that consumers are now able to access products and services for much less in the new economy and he’s right so why not offer a high-value, low-cost real estate business concept that leverages the economies of scale to create a proven operating model?

In less than 7 years, Paul’s drive and energy has built a brand with more than 100 offices in Australia and New Zealand. His ability to sell his brand and build a great team around him makes him an inspiring leader in the new real estate economy.

Whether you’re a real estate business owner, one of the sales team or even someone brand new to our industry, I challenge you not to be moved and lifted by Paul’s passion and I’m very grateful to him for sharing so much in this interview.

By the way, Paul’s just written a book and in our enthusiasm during this session we forgot to mention the title which is ‘How To Profit From Real Estate Business Ownership’ (Essential reading for any existing or aspiring real estate business owner)

About Paul Davies

Paul Davies has worked in real estate for more than 40 years, he’s made in excess of 1,000 property sales and has conducted more than 300 auctions. His career began in property management, and as a young sales agent he lined his bosses’ pockets with hard graft and received little change in return. The next and most obvious step was to build his own real estate business.

Paul has since owned two national franchise agencies and also created two boutique independent agencies. The franchise business running costs went through the roof and although the business made a great income, they lost their profits to ridiculously high overheads. The boutique agencies were far more economical to run, but they just couldn’t compete against the major franchises. There had to be a better solution for agents to grow sustainable and profitable real estate businesses.

He has had plenty of success and Paul admits that he has also made some obvious mistakes. However, the single most important thing he has learned is that it’s not how much money you make that counts, it’s how much you get to keep after all the expenses are paid.

That premise, along with his wife Annie’s encouragement, was the motivator behind One Agency. Paul took his experience and launched a revolutionary and unique business model.  Real estate agents and business owners now have the freedom to set up a business under their own brand, join a respected Australia-wide network and retain as much of their hard-earned fees as possible.

One Agency is rapidly expanding, has a presence in all states and territories of Australia, and New Zealand.  Paul continues to stand at the helm of the business, bringing his personal guidance and wealth of experience to all members. He lives in Sydney with his wife Annie and son Beau.
