“This was our first office in Swieqi where the first-ever QuickLets sign went up,” Mr Mercieca began.

“With only 20 square metres of space opposite Corner Food Store, [I] quickly realised [I] needed to expand the office space. After just two months, we relocated to an 80 square metre office on top of the iconic Jessie’s Bar. The start-up quickly grew into an eight agent-strong team,” he continued.

Just two years after launching QuickLets, Mr Mercieca once again teamed up with Michael Mercieca to found Zanzi Homes – a brand focused on the sale of residential property.

He was appointed CEO of the company in January 2017.

“We aim to remove the stiff, inaccessible culture of the standard real estate industry. Our aim is to constantly encourage a vibrant and engaging workplace that makes our team feel comfortable being themselves. This then drives our team to give their 100 per cent,” Mr Mercieca wrote.

“We understand that finding the right rental property is vital. Our database of over 55,900 properties can guarantee that your wants and needs are met to the best of the market’s availability,” he added.

The QuickLets and Zanzi Homes CEO went on to note how the former company has grown to employ a whopping 314 employees in the past eight-and-a-half years, boasting 42 offices spread around Malta, Gozo, and Cyprus.

“QuickLets exists to innovate the real estate industry, create a diverse culture, and inspire purpose,” Mr Mercieca concluded.

In light of the resounding success enjoyed by both QuickLets and Zanzi Homes, Mr Mercieca helped launch the QLZH Foundation – a charitable organisation made up of three committees: the environment committee, the animal rights and wellbeing committee, and the humanitarian committee.

QLZH Foundation’s initiatives include beach clean-ups, indigenous tree planting, and gift donations to hospitalised children during Christmastime.
