“Today’s real estate professionals are faced with a variety of challenges from shifting house market to a technological landscape that has altered the way customers buy and sell homes, real estate agents are expected to know and do it all.

Mr Dass established its business in 2007 and it was closed for two years because he went to New Zealand to study Real Estate.

He added that Inglewood Realtors Fiji will focus on using online platforms to sell homes.

“Commercial properties, tourism and film industry is pushing market to greater heights with confident investing spreading wings of investments on coastal and central areas.
