Mark Kentwell speaking
Newcastle real estate agent Mark Kentwell has been busy brushing up on his Korean and other languages as he heads to the CCIM Korea International Real Estate Conference as the only Australian speaker.
The conference is being held in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on August 17 and 18. Mr Kentwell, director of PRDnationwide Newcastle & Lake Macquarie, has been invited as the only Australian to speak along-side other real estate professionals from the USA, Europe and Asia. Local delegates are assembling to hear about the current outlook of foreign real estate investment by country.
Mr Kentwell said he will be taking the opportunity to showcase Newcastle and the Hunter as well as the rest of Australia in his presentation.
“I’m speaking about real estate trends and investment opportunities in Australia which will certainly include our region,” Mr Kentwell said.
“Interest in and appetite for investment our transforming city and region is high,” he said.
“I’m getting lots of interest from international buyers from a number of the development projects we market locally and South Korea is another exciting market.”
The conference is being held at the same time as the Korea Economic Daily and Informa Group UK hold Cityscape Korea 2017, which they describe as “Asia's most powerful real estate exposition”. The expo will showcase real estate products and opportunities from 20 countries.
Mr Kentwell is no stranger to representing the region and Australia’s real estate sector overseas. He undertakes regular study tours to improve his business and is often asked to speak about the Friendly Auction System and book he developed. This year he’s spoken in the United States.
