Steve Fejos
Born in Wellington and educated at St Patrick’s College and Victoria University in Wellington Steve entered real estate in August 1993, having come from a background in property management. In January 1996 Steve was appointed Sales Manager for Challenge Realty’s Oriental Bay Office. Within eighteen months Steve took the office into the top ten in the Challenge Realty Group. Steve went on to purchase three Wellington offices in October 1997. Over the next seven years Steve was instrumental in growing the company from a sales team of twelve to a team of sixty-eight sales people with four thousand house sales worth over 1.5 billion dollars! Shortly after Steve sold the business he was approached by Ray White Australia and asked to restructure their international business model so as to increase their competitiveness with RE/MAX. At the time over three hundred sales people, in Queensland alone, had left Ray White to join RE/MAX. In the next few years Steve played a huge part in turning around the fortunes of Ray White and increasing the number of sales people by over 40%. Steve returned to New Zealand in November 2005 and took up the role of Director of Operations for RE/MAX New Zealand. The role was to assist broker owners and top sales people at new and established RE/MAX offices to implement their business plans and maintain the momentum of the fastest growing real estate company - the RE/MAX brand, in New Zealand and Australia. In 2006 Steve attended a wide range of leading international industry training seminars in Denver, Chicago and Brisbane. After more than four hundred flights during his three years in his corporate career Steve decided to resign and return to what he loves doing most - selling real estate in Wellington. Steve’s extensive experience in real estate spanning local, national and international markets is a huge benefit to his clients. This and his innovative and unique marketing techniques is ‘Setting a New BENCHMARQUE in Wellington Real Estate’.
