Mr. Balazs will take over from VIEW’s Enzo Raimondo, who has been closely involved with the property listing portal for over 16 years, first as CEO of Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) and later taking over as CEO of RealestateVIEW in 2016.

Mr Balazs joins VIEW having served as a key member of REA’s leadership and online strategy teams since 2004.

Announcing Toby’s appointment, VIEW Chairman John Piccolo said Mr Balazs is a dynamic thinker and leader.

“His track record in executing transformative digital programs has been exceptional and he embodies VIEW’s values of innovation, integrity and fostering strong family ideals”, he said.

Reflecting on his appointment, Mr Balazs said, “VIEW has a great culture, an increasingly broad capability in the market and a winning strategy that has enabled VIEW to grow strongly. Growing VIEW from the 3rd largest player is a challenge I accept with both confidence and determination,” he said.

“I am committed to continuing VIEW’s momentum based on a differentiated offering, which is resonating strongly in the market — by offering lower fees for real estate agents to list property, and importantly, delivering consumers an exceptional level of real estate industry information on a platform that is free and easy to use. My mission is to lead VIEW to even greater things.

Mr Balazs joins VIEW as it continues to roll out the stimulating rebrand and new site experience.  The next round of transformations to be released in Spring 2018 are focused on providing richer search metrics and making property research easier and more informative.
