Comments from satisfied client Ms Jennifer Poole (Director of Marie Stopes International)
Q: Why did you choose to deal with Jokhan Realtors initially?
A: I was referred by a work colleague after inquiring about a suitable rental property in Fiji. I gave the requirements to my PA and she located a property which Jokhan realtors was handling.

Q: Why do you choose to continue to deal with Jokhan Realtors?
A: Your company was handling the property which I was most interested in. It was a good property with a fair price.

Q: What specific service of Jokhan Realtors do you find particularly appealing?
A: Friendly and prompt service with honest advice. I was collected in a nice clean air-conditioned and comfortable vehicle and driven to inspect various properties. I was given very good advice. When I signed the rental agreement it was negotiated well for me.
The property was made available at the time I required it, even though it required a lot of extra effort by the Realtor to remove the former difficult tenant.
I was provided with immediate assistance to repair damages and faults with the property. I was advised and provided with good service and maintenance personnel.
It was clear that Jokhan Realtors valued their clients, and worked to keep them happy.
Jokhan Realtors go out of their way to assist clients with inquiries.

Q. What other services, make Jokhan Realtors exceptional?
A: The personal service is sincere and the staff are very helpful and supportive and continued to assist with inquiries throughout the business partnership (rental). When I required advice on reliable workmen, gardeners and contractors, the Realtor provided or referred reliable companies. The Realtor actually made an effort to assist the tenant not just at the beginning of the contract but throughout the rental period. When inquiring as to how to proceed with a home purchase in Fiji, I had exceptionally good advice and was shown properties at a time that was suitable to me and in the price range that was affordable and realistic. The service by this company was so impressive, that I have since referred many more clients to them and they have been similarly well treated. One of my staff members found an apartment and was settled into that apartment in one week.

Q. How did you find the communications or other services provided by this company?
A: Email inquiries are responded to promptly and the phone is always answered regardless of the time.

There are only about 50 registered real estate companies in Fiji but more than 200 unregistered companies. The Real Estate Licensing Board of Fiji requires real estate companies to be registered in order to be recognized as the legal operating agencies. Jokhan Realtors is a registered company with RELB and a founding member of the Real Estate Institute of Fiji (REIF).

Overcoming Obstacles

Real estate companies in Fiji face a number of challenges including competing with overseas-based companies. As a result of these off-shore companies the price of real estate has been inflated. Therefore, the local companies constantly need to compete with this. This makes it difficult for buyers locally and overseas to understand the sudden surge in property prices.

Another challenge for us is the limited ability of local clients to secure funds to purchase properties. Jokhan Realtors assists such clients by putting them in touch with personnel of the lending companies who provide personal service to these clients, making this difficult task more bearable. This is a distinct service, which Jokhan Realtors is proud of, giving its clients a more personal experience.
