James Bell

CEO, Century 21 Australasia

Along with his 23 years of industry experience, the vast majority operating his own successful real estate business, James has brought a fresh energy to the CEO role.

James is well known to the industry finding success in sales, auctioneering, property management and business ownership.

However, it was the satisfaction from helping others that gave James the appetite for leadership on a grander scale. Mr Bell’s appointment followed an impactful period as the Head of Network Services for the C21 network. He believes that the voice of franchisees should be represented in the decisions made to improve and scale the work they are doing. His mission is to work collaboratively to help principals, agents, property managers and ultimately the consumer reach their potential and have positive experiences when transacting real estate.

As the largest real estate name in the world, Century 21 has the brand awareness, service proposition, technology and training to deliver a fully supported offering to its existing network. They offer both a traditional office shopfront as well as a mobile model for high performing agents wanting to operate their own business and leverage the support of a leading real estate franchise.
