Enriching the Future 富集未来

Hubert Jahja

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。

Hubert Jahja 于 1997 年来到墨尔本,并且在墨尔本大学攻读商学士学位。毕业后,加入普华永道会计师事务所任职了5年的审计师。当他与数字打交道时,一颗心逐渐向往着商业世界,不久他加盟 TeleChoice 开创了 Optus 特许店。8年后,他从电讯业转向房地产业,2013年设立了 Enrich Realty Group (瑞丰集团)。
“操控价值更高的项目物品倍有成就感。”

“房地产是代表性主要商品。”

去年,Enrich Realty Group (瑞丰集团) 进一步收购了Planinsek Property Group。在住宅和商业销售、物业管理、资本投资和项目营销方面大展拳脚。Enrich Realty Group (瑞丰集团) 还拥有1000套房产租赁组合的资金,预估价值高达5亿。

他总是充满热情与活力,却为人谦逊。“墨尔本的房地产市场激奋人心且多样化,作为充满活力的城市,人口增长迅速,房地产是这里代表性主要商品。”

Hubert Jahja 的成功之路历经了牺牲奉献、长时间埋首工作和有时承受失望打击。“对于新手来说,房地产市场看起来既富裕又轻松。每个人都西装笔挺,开着漂亮豪车;但是你真的需要努力工作,为市场风向和战斗做好万全准备。”

Mahoni Group 是其新成立的子公司,主要从事房地产开发。“我们正在购买土地,开发高端独栋别墅项目。我们所具备房地产中介背景,使得我们更加了解客户需求且知道如何填补市场空缺。我们热衷于在东部地区开展高品质且价格适中的土地开发项目。‘’

“我们希望所建成的项目是可持续的,并以积极正面的方式影响社会。”

不忘初心,坚持回馈社会,Jahja基金会就是专门为援助不幸者所设立。“我们秉持回馈社会的信念,一直与联合国儿童基金会(UNICEF)合作,为下一代提供更美好的未来。这就是印证 Mahoni Group 的口号:现在和下一代。我们希望所建成的项目是可持续的,并以积极正面的方式影响社会。”

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.”  

一般人游览维多利亚州时,首选目标通常是墨尔本,然后接下来可能是菲利普岛(Phillip Island)、莫宁顿半岛(Mornington Peninsula)和其他受欢迎景点。但也有一些发展迅速、颇具吸引力的城镇距离这些热门区域不到2小时的路程。仅这个特点就已经让许多国际和当地游客积极探索,并考虑将这些城镇作为下一个的家园。

Warragul就是这样一个小城镇,在墨尔本东南偏东102公里处。这个地方以土著词“野狗”命名,介于南部的Strzelecki山脉和北部大分界线的Baw Baw山脉高原之间。

维多利亚以优美的郊外区域景色而闻名,传说中的绿树成荫,山峦叠嶂。对于想要远离墨尔本急剧增长人口密度的人们来说,这里可能是最佳选择。

George Avon 作为一名眼光独到的房产建筑商,数年前就提出相关设想,并与房产投资者叶绍礼(Jason Yeap)合作,在Warragul市郊进行占地160块的Lillico混合开发项目。

“这是一个繁荣的乡镇,距离墨尔本、菲利普岛海滩和雪山等主要景点仅需1小时路程。这也会是集居民区、医院、学校、购物中心,体育设施和旅游景点于一身的重点城镇。”

担任Lillico开发项目总监的他清楚认知这是一个事实,因为身为Warragul土生土长的当地人,他在该地区建造住宅和商业单位工程已经累积了40年的经验。

“我也有在一些项目中经历挫折,但你只能持续生活,快速克服并前进。”

George Avon 所有成都是仰赖努力与勤奋来实现,即使被认为是一个非常“成功”的建筑商,经营着家族企业,共有8名员工,包括他的妻子是财务会计,还有其中一名儿子是木匠。

“在这个行业熬出头并非易事。我每天清晨5点半开始工作,晚上6点下班,一天工作12个小时最正常不过。付出多少回报就有多少。”

“这份工作最激动人心的时刻是当你达成了一个成功的项目。我在Warragul建设了一些托儿中心,可能毫无悬念这是最轻松的工作。”

他承认,工作中最困难的部分是与人建立互信关系,事实证明有些人并非他们所说的那样。“我也有在一些项目中经历挫折,但你只能持续生活,快速克服并前进。”他也曾和两名商业伙伴共同经营一家当地酒店。

他表示,随着高频率冒出的许多新开发项目,作为买家很容易被迷惑,在没有慎密核对考虑下快速购买。他说,任何人都可以向买家推销项目,但质量绝对是无捷径可走。

“虽然有很多选择,但作为建筑商,我们确保只使用高品质的材料。如果你花费一点额外的钱建造一个商业单位或大型购物中心,买家可以在最终产品中看到它,也将使我们在开发项目中脱颖而出。
