QUEEN’S ROAD: Former Australian cricketer Steve Waugh was in the city on Friday to promote his property portal ‘Waugh Global’.

“I was into entrepreneurship when I was playing cricket for the Australian team. Now, I want to focus on my business skills and expand them further,” he told reporters.

Waugh started working on the project 12 months ago. “I will make people believe through proper value system in the firm. They will be able to buy property and at the same time, be certain that confidentiality will be maintained about their investment.”

For this purpose, the firm has developed a portal with good technology. We are also backed by a good team. Since there is a struggle to get into the international market, it makes sense to enter the Indian market.”

The firm has branches in the United States, United Kingdom, China, North Africa, South Africa and New Zealand. Waugh Global aims to be among the top 150 real estate brokers in the market within one year, Honan said.

In India, they have set seven cities, including New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, as targets. They got in touch with developers like Prestige, Sobha, Assetz and Brigade Group to list their properties on the portal. Ben Salmon, CEO, Assetz Properties, said, “We want to help NRIs access good properties in India.”
