Zanzi Homes Malta
Formation and Company Background
Information about Zanzi Homes - an award-winning hi-tech estate agency in Malta
Zanzi Homes is part of the QLZH Group. The group is formed of Quicklets, Zanzi Homes, OfficeFinder, Zet Finance, and QLZH Foundation. The group was created by brothers Michael and Steve Mercieca.
Zanzi Homes is the group's specialized brand focusing on the sale of real estate in the Maltese Islands. It was launched in April 2015 with its head office in St. Julian’s.
In July 2020, Quicklets and Zanzi announced the opening of two branches in Cyprus in their first international venture. The first branch opened in Limassol on July 8th.
Zanzi Homes Employees
The number of sales agents and admin/support staff at Zanzi is 87 in 2020 according to LinkedIn. 81 are based in Malta and the other 6 elsewhere in Europe.
Zanzi also uses “Virtual Agents”. A virtual agent does not work as an employee of Zanzi Homes but can earn a commission by promoting the services of Zanzi using promotional codes and an invitational tool. They can also earn commission on referrals.
Zanzi Homes Operations
Zanzi Homes focuses solely on residential and commercial property sales across the Maltese islands. The lettings side of the business is handled by Quicklets.
The company has a major reliance and focus on information technology. In 2016, they were the first real estate agency in Malta to introduce virtual 3D video tours of properties. In the latest update to the website, there is a feature unique to any real estate agent in Malta and that is the “Draw on Map” option. Using this tool, clients can click on an interactive map to draw a line around the area in which they would like to find a property. The website will then return a list of all available properties within that perimeter. Another unique feature is the property comparison tool.
Residential sales cover both Malta and Gozo with a website that offers multiple search options. There’s the basic search by location or price, but also an option to quick find desirable features and details that range from appliances to type of view to heating type. So, if your future home simply must have a dishwasher or solar panels, you can narrow down your search results to those properties that meet the criteria.
Commercial sales also cover Malta and Gozo. Again the website offers multiple search options but there are fewer choices in the quick find features category.
Listings for both residential and commercial properties also feature those that are available soon, so you can get a heads up on what is coming on to the market. This is particularly good for those properties that are still being built/in development.
The Branch Network
The QLZH Group has 31 locations in total in Malta and Gozo. Zanzi has 21 branches some of which are shared premises with Quicklets and some of which are franchises. The locations are:
Commission and Fees
Zanzi’s fees are the Maltese standard of 5% of sale price.
