Century 21 has reached a special milestone as it celebrates its 50 years, working to help people achieve their property needs. They first opened their doors internationally in 1971.

While many things have changed over the past half-century, including the type of houses we live in and their value, the Century 21 (C21) network has strived to achieve the absolute best result for their clients in an ever-increasingly competitive industry.

From 1971 to 1976, the franchise opened around 100 new offices each month. Today, C21 has 13,500 independently owned and operated offices with 152,000 agents around the world.

C21 came to Australia in July 1994. It has been led and operated by chairman and owner Charles Tarbey.

Prior to taking on the Australasian arm of Century 21, Mr Tarbey created and grew his Combined Real Estate business to 56 offices, which he merged into Century 21 to commence a new era of real estate.
