The iProperty Group, the owner of Asia’s No.1 network of property portal sites with market leading portals in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore, today announced that it has formed a partnership with LJ Hooker, Australia’s best-known and most trusted real estate brand.
The partnership between the two parties will see over 50,000 sales listings published from over 690 LJ Hooker offices in Australasia on the iProperty Group’s network of property portals in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.
Commenting on the partnership, iProperty Group Chief Executive Officer, Shaun Di Gregorio, said that the agreement will allow LJ Hooker agencies to advertise their for sale properties in key Asian markets whilst tapping into a whole new market of potential property buyers and investors in the Asian region.
“The partnership means that when a vendor lists a property for sale with LJ Hooker, that property will also be advertised on the iProperty Group’s network of property portals. At the same time the partnership is in line with our strategic mission to deliver more choice for our consumers who are in search of properties not only locally but increasingly abroad,” said Di Gregorio.
Also commenting on the partnership, LJ Hooker’s General Manager of International and Head of Network Development, Bill Russell, said that LJ Hooker was proud to be in partnership with the leading operator of property portals in Asia.
“LJ Hooker is committed to growing and expanding the reach of our agents, not just in Australia and New Zealand but also in Asia. Our aim is to provide the best real estate experience and service for our customers and to continue to be the leading brand and the name that is synonymous with real estate,” said Russell.
He added that the partnership with iProperty Group’s will drive exposure to key markets across Asia, highly effective marketing to consumers and lead generation to advertisers.
