Reliance Real Estate has been crowned the eighth fastest growing company on The Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100 list.
The achievement makes the independent agency officially the fastest growing real estate company in the nation. The company has seen a 108.8 per cent growth over the past year, $4.67 million in revenue, making the leap from 43rd spot in 2016 to the top 10. Clearly, evidence of Reliance Real Estate’s disruptive approach to property markets.
“I couldn’t sleep the night before, it was like exam results coming out,” says Reliance’s CEO/Director Sunil Kumar of their high ranking inclusion on the list. “While we are committed to the West, our vision is to create an independent, boutique brand that is recognised and respected across the whole of Melbourne.”
He believes the company’s wildly popular “no sale, no charge” promise, integrity of customer service including a guaranteed call back within three business hours and development, focus on internal development and empowered leadership spanning across student placements to elite training at a purpose-built new facility, and rapid physical expansion contributed to their growth. “Basing ourselves in the western suburbs with new headquarters is something no other real estate agency is doing. We have also opened Taylors Lakes, Caroline Springs and Tarneit offices as well as an urban land department in just the past four months,” says Sunil.
He adds that the establishment of the Reliance Foundation donating real time, money and goods each month to a diverse range of hand-picked charities is also helping the company make a connection with the community. “It makes the locals feel invested in Reliance’s success. A portion of every agent’s commission goes towards the Foundation,” he says.
“If our people are successful, our clients will find success too,” says Sunil, who adds that they are aiming even higher for 2018.
