Strong Start for QLC, Commercial Real Estate.

QLC, the commercial real estate brand born from the QuickLets and Zanzi Homes Group, has started off
on a strong foot, following its launch in the late months of last year. Going into their first full calendar
year, QLC, headed by the CEO of the QLZH Group, Steve Mercieca and its Head of Commercial, Michael
Paris (insert), embraced January’s symbolism of renewal, goal-setting and motivation. Following a
challenging year for commercial real estate that encouraged the company to evolve, the team
recognised the opportunity ahead and rounded up its top talent to design a strategy that would benefit
and support its large client base in a year which is being trusted as the one to restart and rebuild
businesses of all size.

Towards the end of 2020, following the announcement on the vaccination strategy, investors and
business leaders reassessed their future plans which most times start of the premises and operating
space.

After a quiet start to the second half of the year, demand for commercial properties surged in the last
quarter of 2020. This was due to business and property owners rethinking their set-up and rental
prices, which resulted in the market remaining strong whilst shifting to a more appropriate balance for
both landlord and lessee. Property owners negotiating on their rent for the first year in order to help out
their prospective tenants in their time of need became common practice; a true show of solidarity and
kinship.

Commercial Specialists were catalysts in facilitating this process. “We consider ourselves business
partners to all the commercial property owners and business owners that entrust in this matchmaking
process”, says Michael Paris. “As Head of Commercial, my passion is to lead and coach our commercial
specialists in delivering the best experience for both sides which is integral in a business-to-business
transaction”, he continues.

This demand has continued to increase after the turn of the year, with the QLC team continuing their
efforts to service their clientele in an efficient and professional manner. Backed by real estate
powerhouses, QuickLets & Zanzi Homes, their newly revamped database with just under eight-thousand
commercial properties and the ongoing weekly training sessions provided by Paris himself, the goal is to
ensure a homogenous performance with all commercial specialists across the company’s thirty-two
branches. QLC has adapted quickly to the changes in the market and continues to give a premium
service the industry demands.

Earlier this month, the co-owners presented the strategy for 2021 to the Group’s Franchise Owners and
Managers, which was met with excitement for the year ahead. year. “We are just starting! QLC is set to
follow in the successful footsteps of its founding company QuickLets, retaining the mantra of innovation,
and embracing work culture and the inspiration of purpose”, Paris concludes.
