At HOME789 we are building (if you’ll forgive the pun) on a very strong foundation – combined with a proud history of success within the Sydney market and overseas.
We are growing our network, our people and our capability, and we are doing it as a team. We’re passionate about this industry and our brand, and we want to take it to even greater heights. We are taking that passion and running with it. We want to be exceptional; to push our limits.
And we will achieve this by connecting, sharing, learning, educating - and by doing whatever it takes to be the best in this industry. These are very exciting times for HOME789.
Walton Chu, now CEO of HOME789, took the initial 2008 start-up company from being a
small business in Chippendale, then known as “Great Fortune Investment”, to become one
of Sydney's most successful project marketing and property management companies.
Walton brings a wealth of financial knowledge, property expertise and experience to his
client relationships. His specialist areas include project marketing, property development,
business strategy, sales strategy and asset management.
Under Walton's expertise and leadership, HOME789 and himself have received recognition
from numerous professional bodies in the past two years, including Australian Business
Awards (ABA), New South Wales Business Chamber (NSWBC) and Real Estate Institute
of New South Wales (REINSW). HOME789 is the 2016 winner of Australian Business
Awards (ABA) 100 for Brand Excellence. We are also a proud finalist in both the REINSW
Awards of Excellence in the category of Residential Sales Team and the City of Sydney
Business Awards for Excellence in Business for the past two consecutive years. Walton is
the finalist for Business Leader in 2016 City of Sydney Business Awards.
Besides, Walton strongly believes that behaving responsibly is critical to the sustainability of
the company. HOME789 proudly supports various organisations and charity groups, raising
much needed money and volunteering for such important causes with worthy contributions.
With the utmost professionalism in the Real Estate industry, Walton facilitates major
acquisitions for our VIP corporate clients, which are worth more than $110 million so far.
Walton in fact began his career as a medical doctor, but discovered his talent for Real Estate
not so much by choice but in the process of making ends meet. “I came to work in this
industry through life experiences and understanding the importance of owning a property.
The business of real estate is not about selling a property. It’s about taking responsibility,
building trust and representing our clients' greatest asset - and helping them to maximise
their benefit and achieve their needs."
