Chief Executive Officer of Enrich Realty Group Pty Ltd
Enrich Realty Group Pty Ltd (瑞丰集团) 首席执行官
Acquiring property in Melbourne is a serious sport. You need a winning personality like Hubert Jahja, Chief Executive Officer of Enrich Realty Group, on your team. With that delicious goatee and boyish dimples, one grows a liking for Jahja instantly. His mastery in property development and capital investment takes the stress and anxiety out of house-hunting in the world’s most liveable city.
Jahja came to Melbourne in 1997 to do a Bachelor of Commerce in the University of Melbourne. Upon graduation he joined Price Waterhouse Coopers and became an auditor for five years. While crunching numbers, his heart yearned for the business world and soon he started a licence shop for Optus with TeleChoice. After eight years he migrated from telecommunication to real estate and set up Enrich Realty Group in 2013. “It is more gratifying to transact higher value items.”
“Property is a staple commodity.”
Last year Enrich Realty Group further acquired Planinsek Property Group. Dealing in residential and commercial sales, property management, capital investment and project marketing, Enrich Realty Group also has a coffer of 1,000 properties under rental portfolios, with an estimated asset value of $0.5 billion.
Always energetic and enthusiastic but never overbearing, Jahja says, “The property market in Melbourne is very exciting and diverse. Melbourne is a vibrant city and the population is growing rapidly. Property is a staple commodity here.”
Jahja’s trajectory to the pinnacle of success is filled with sacrifices, long hours and sometimes disappointment. “To newbies – the real estate market looks rich and easy. Everyone is in power suits and nice cars but you really need to put in the hard yards. Be prepared for trends and trenches.”
“We want to build projects that are enduring and have a strong positive impact to society.”
A new arm, the Mahoni Group is all about property development. “We are buying land and developing boutique town houses with an ambition to develop industrial and commercial in the near future. From our real estate agency background, we understand the demands and how to fill the gaps in the market. We are passionate about developing quality projects in high-growth eastern suburbs without the high price tags.”
Not forgetting social obligations, the Jahja Foundation is specially set up to help the less fortunate. “We strongly believe in giving back and have always worked with UNICEF in that area. We are also determined to provide a better future for the next generation. That’s why the Mahoni Group tag line is ‘Now and Next Generation’. We want to build projects that are enduring and have a strong positive impact to society.”
在墨尔本房产领域获利如同一项苛刻的竞技运动。你的团队中需要一个像 Hubert Jahja- Enrich Realty Group Pty Ltd (瑞丰集团) 的首席执行官所具备的制胜人格。有趣的山羊胡和孩子气的酒窝，Jahja的亲和力会瞬间拉近彼此距离。而他对房地产开发和资本投资的专业精通，更能舒缓人们在这个全球最宜居城市买房的压力和焦虑感。
People usually think that no visit to Victoria is complete without visiting Melbourne, Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula. After ticking those top tourist destinations off the bucket list, it then becomes a little tricky to decide where else to visit…
However, there are several growing and attractive townships that are less than two hours away from these popular areas. This alone is enough to entice many international and local tourists to explore and possibly consider such townships as their next home.
One such mini metropolis is Warragul, located 102 kilometres away from Melbourne towards the Southeast. The town is named after an Aboriginal word meaning “Wild Dog” and sits between the Strzelecki Ranges and the Mount Baw Baw Plateau of the Great Dividing Range to the South and North of Melbourne respectively.
Known for its beautiful scenic views of Victoria’s countryside and blessed with lush greenery, hills and mountains; Warragul could be next on the list for people who are looking to move away from the ever-growing population density of Melbourne.
“The best part of the job is when you successfully complete a project.”
Builder George Avon envisioned this years ago and has partnered with property investor Jason Yeap to establish Lillico Corporation to develop 170 blocks of land on the outskirts of Warragul.
“This is a booming country town that’s only one hour away from the major attractions like Melbourne, Phillip Island’s beaches and the snow-capped mountains. It’ll be the next major town filled with residential areas, hospitals, schools, shopping centres, sporting facilities and tourist attractions,” said Avon.
He knows this for a fact as he was born and bred in Warragul and has built several residential and commercial units in the area for over 40 years.
HARD WORK COMES BEFORE SUCCESS
Avon who runs his family business of eight employees including his wife as the bookkeeper and son as one of his carpenters; has been referred to as a very “successful” builder.
“Being successful in this industry isn’t easy. My day starts at 5.30am every morning and I clock off at 6pm every night, it’s normal to do 12 hours a day. But what you put in is what you get out of it,” Avon says.
“The best part of the job is when you successfully complete a project. I’ve built some childcare centres in Warragul and they were probably the easiest jobs with no issues,” he said.
He admits that the most difficult part of his job is establishing trust with people due to his unfortunate experience of working with people who don’t turn out to be who they said they were.
“There are plenty of choices out there for builders, however we ensure that only the highest quality materials are used.”
“I’ve experienced this in a few projects that didn’t work out and you just get on with life – just quickly overcome it and move on,” said Avon who also used to run a local hotel together with two other business partners.
With several new developments cropping up each day, it’s easy as a buyer to get duped into making a quick purchase without conducting thorough due diligence. Whilst anyone can market their projects to buyers, there are no shortcuts when it comes to ensuring quality.
“There are plenty of choices out there for builders, however we ensure that only the highest quality materials are used. Regardless of whether you’re building a house, commercial unit or a shopping centre; buyers can see it in the product when we spend extra money on high quality materials. It is this dedication to quality that will inevitably make us a top choice when it comes to property development.”
