Anton Jones is well-known locally within real estate. An Otumoetai College old boy, Anton trained in valuation and property management before heading off to London to work in property. He then got into development before incrementally buying five First National Real Estate businesses.
He says he was immediately impressed with the team Tremains had assembled and the dynamism and ideas they brought.
“Real Estate now is a profession. There is more training and more people are qualified in property, marketing, and commerce.” But, he says, he believes what Tremains is now doing will take the industry to a new level again.
Property Industry Innovation
“We are dealing with significant assets on behalf of our clients. So we need to be always searching for innovative ways of operating, promoting, and thinking through the options on their behalf so they get the most value for what they have accumulated.
“Most people who sell houses are not property specialists. They are specialists in other fields and just want to engage someone who understands property and property markets at a high level so they can achieve what they want to from a sale or purchase.”
