NEXA Cardiff’s Rugby Heritage

Recently opening its doors to Cardiff, NEXA is driving the property market forward and tackling issues faced with traditional, unchanged estate agency systems found in local high streets.

Rugby heritage to be proud of

At the core of NEXA Cardiff’s ethos is the rich rugby culture weaved through their business. The modern agents proudly boast renowned rugby names in their directorship, with the likes of the esteemed Olly Kohn. Best known for his one-cap and participation in the 2013 Six Nations title win, Kohn brings his inspirational drive, entrepreneurship, and impressive property experience to the NEXA family.

Similarly, the unforgettable regional star Rob Higgitt whose admirable career saw his position develop from an integral part of Bristol’s defensive line before joining the Scarlets and landing the final try against his former club in their 2008 27-0 victory. Higgitt’s invaluable strategic thinking is evident throughout the intricate details of NEXA’s planning.

Alongside Kohn and Higgitt, the notable flanker-turned-coach Joe El-Abd who possesses legendary status in Bristol with over 100 appearances including some Captaincy. As well as taking Caerphilly to a European final as captain when he was a junior and his 2018 Top 14 title win with Castres Olympique, El-Abd provides essential consultancy as a Group Managing Director of NEXA Cardiff whilst based in France.

The notable rugby heritage and doesn’t stop there, with many other colleagues holding distinct involvement in rugby across Wales and England.


Merging property and rugby

Managing a suite of property portfolios for various Welsh rugby players, this dynamic estate agency showcases their unique business model that delivers a seamless solution for Cardiff homeowners, buyers, developers, landlords, and renters alike. With a dedicated Client Director each for property journey, they diminish the need for passing back and forth and instead work to advance the process forward in a way that is both time and cost-effective for their clients.

In parrel to the Welsh Rugby Union, NEXA’s Client Directors hold key principals such as integrity, excellence, and success to ensure their service level is unmatched to that of an average estate agent. Their track records are unbeatable; Cardiff’s Senior Client Director Ollie Griffiths demonstrates excellence in his field proven by his British Property Award for Best Agent in London and the South.

Comparably, Kohn outlines “our Client Directors are accomplished in being motivated to see a service through – from initial viewing to completion. They understand their clients personally and regardless of the sale price or what they’re looking to achieve, everyone receives exceptional service. Too often in the property market, the refined service is given to high-value properties and developers; leaving renters, landlords, and lower value properties left in the dust to receive an inconsistent, pass-around service. I am over the moon to be a part of a company that is revolutionising UK estate agencies and providing solutions to the frustrations you typically see in the industry.”
