Think win-win, says KD Ahuja. “It’s the only way to go.”
Nitu, his wife, says, “Be like water. Powerful. Gentle. Adaptable. Ever-changing.”
KD and Nitu Ahuja—call them the power couple if you’d like. KD is a prominent real estate agent and business owner for a decade, and the Selling Principal of Ray White Hoppers Crossing. Having worked exceptionally hard throughout his career, KD’s upbeat attitude and passion for real estate is relentless. He is committed to providing an incomparable service for his clients and the community. With KD’s ongoing success, it is no wonder that he has such a long list of repeat clients and referral business.
A proud local, KD has extensive knowledge of the Western Suburbs and has over 15 years of experience in sales and business development. He has obtained a Masters of Business Marketing (Victoria University).
Nitu Grover Ahuja (Haneet) is a Melbourne-based artist who completed her Master’s in Fine Arts from RMIT University. Along with her MFA she has also got her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Delhi University and a Diploma in Art History and Aesthetics from the National Museum New Delhi.
KD mentors and provides leadership to not only his staff but anyone who comes in contact with the void of learning. “Our team, an energetic group of dynamic individuals creates an outstanding customer experience second to none.” His awards include the Top 10 Principals Settled Commission (2017/2018), Elite Performer (2017/2018), Premier Member (2017), Elite Performer (2016).
Being able to deliver a calm and professional approach, KD believes integrity and understanding are key to making the process for all his clients stress-free.
“You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the power that created you. It’s a quote from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. Practicing Sahaja Yoga since 2012 I believe meditation is key to the soul,” he says.
When not working, KD enjoys spending time reading books and yoga. He enjoys a good movie and cooking. He loves spending quality time with his family, wife and their young daughter.
He also works with Lets Feed, World Vision, Fred Hollows, Special Children’s Events Australia, The Salvation Army and Save The Children. “I am always looking for ways to help those in need. I look to work on projects that inspire,” he says.
For Nitu inspiration comes from closer quarters. “My mom is my biggest inspiration as I grew up staring at her sketches and oil paintings. Her art pieces are beyond perfect. I can still feel those sketch pads and smell the oil paint,” says Nitu, who also works in the acrylic and oil media. “On the other hand my father helped me narrow down the college I was going to study at. With just 30 seats available for the course, I managed to make it to the top five,” says Nitu. “My family supported me in every possible way to get my out of box education internationally and sent me to Melbourne to pursue my masters.”
Nitu’s paintings are a “play of light and shadows” in a monochromatic palette. She was recently commissioned by the Consulate General of Indian – Birmingham to make a custom designed painting on the Kartarpur Corridor. This one of a kind painting was completed within 48 hours of the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor, connecting the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan to the border with India. “It is possibly the first painting in the world on this great initiative between India and Pakistan,” she says.
Nitu established her Art School in 2009 in Point Cook and has now has expanded to a bigger space in Hoppers Crossing.
She strongly believes that “every child is an artist” and one must let them explore their inborn talent.
Painting also helps children develop their decision-making skills, she says, as they need to plan ahead on colours.
At her Melbourne Art Academy, it’s no wonder that her students feel relaxed and learn something new each class.
“We cover all techniques here at our studio like charcoal, watercolour canvas, life drawings and portraits,” she says.
She also sees art as a therapy for both children and adults. “In addition to communication, painting can help one feel better about things that they may have bottled up inside. It’s a great stress buster.”
