Oren Chasanmus is a 44 year old Israeli national, who moved to settle in Malta with his family, and joined Alliance Real Estate People as a property advisor in 2018.
Based at Alliance Strand branch in Gzira and living in Sliema, Oren focuses mostly on properties in the Gzira and Sliema areas, however he also works further afield around St. Julians, Swieqi, San Gwann, Ibragg and Pembroke, as well as Msida, Pieta and surrounding localities. He often works with investors on new build and renovation projects and gets involved from planning stage all the way to putting the finished units on the market for sale or rent.
Back in Israel, Oren had established a digital printing house, which he ran with a team of about 25 staff for around 20 years. In 2016, he sold his business and moved to Malta seeking a better future for his growing family. Settling and working in Malta has not always been plain sailing for them, as although they speak English fluently, learning Maltese is a bit more challenging. “Sometimes people seem to assume I am Maltese, maybe because I don’t look so foreign as some expats from other countries. When they speak in Maltese, I obviously cannot understand what they are saying to me or between themselves”, he laments helplessly. Despite this setback, Oren has managed to engage very well with his colleagues and clients and has closed several sales successfully. “Having left my home country to build a better future for my family took great courage and determination and by now, nothing really fazes so much. It’s just a bit of a nuisance”, he laughs.
Oren is a jovial and friendly person by nature and says that if he had one wish to change the world it would be that every country enters into a collaboration agreement like Schengen so that we can all consider ourselves to be citizens of the world and achieve global peace.
Asked about his most memorable experience in real estate, he relates the story of a family he had taken out on five viewings with no success. “On the sixth viewing at an apartment in Swieqi, they walk into the property, have a quick look around and within 30 seconds ask me to start preparing the promise of sale paperwork”, he explains. This kind of story is not uncommon in real estate sales everywhere, as most motivated buyers have a clear picture of the property they are looking for and once they find it, they want to make sure not to lose it.
Oren is married to Rinat, and proud father to two girls, Lotem aged 13 and Shaked aged 17.
