Owners of Professionals FIJI Real Estate Agency, Baron and Bren Bruno answered their calling to live in Fiji when they visited the country for their honeymoon in 2019.

From Los Angeles in the United States of America, the duo own and manage an award-winning real estate agency and a successful team called REsource Los Angeles.

Grabbing the opportunity of owning a real estate agency in Fiji, the couple moved to Fiji in March, 2020.

“We settled the purchase of Professionals FIJI Real Estate Agency in December 2019,” he said.

“We moved full-time to Fiji, just five days before the Fiji borders were closed because of COVID-19.

“Here’s a fun fact, our office address in Los Angeles is 13274 Fiji Way in Marina Del Rey, California.

“We went from working on “Fiji Way” to actually living and working in Fiji.”

Mr Bruno said they felt blessed to be in Fiji.

“We look forward to borders reopening so families can be reunited; and more jobs, money and opportunities will return to the Fijian people.”

What’s One Place In Fiji You’d Take Every Visitor To, And Why?
We love exploring and taking in all the exciting sights, sounds, and fragrant smells of the fresh organic produce and flowers at the Namaka market in Nadi.

And to learn about all the incredible things that grow here in Fiji.

The people in this country are as vibrant and hearty as the items sold at this amazing market.

 

What Is Your Secret Backyard Favourite Spot?
The historic Garden of the Sleeping Giant is one of the absolute best hikes we’ve been on together.

An absolutely euphoric, tropical paradise.

What Is Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Pie/Coffee?
In Suva, we crave the chocolate croissants and cappuccinos at the opulent and iconic Grand Pacific Hotel.

In Nadi, our go-to place is South Pacific Coffee Company for long blacks (and their super smooth cold brew coffee).

Mike Dennis is the best coffee roaster in Fiji.

 

What Is The One Fiji Spot On The Top Of Your Bucket List?
There is so much to see and experience here in Fiji.

It is difficult to choose since there are so many spots worth exploring.

Kadavu is definitely near the top of our list, but we’re also hoping to see the legendary red prawns of the Vatulele Island.
