Harcourts has now launched its international real estate services here in North Vancouver. They bring to the market a fresh approach to real estate services, however, they are not new kids on the real estate block. The company origins go back to 1888 when it was founded in Wellington, New Zealand, today it offers real estate services in ten countries and last year concluded sales in excess of $32 billion dollars.
So what makes Harcourts different? Harcourts is a company that only engages full-time professional Realtors and then provides them with considerable training, world leading technology and comprehensive tools to ensure that their clients receive a quality of service that is unparalleled.
Harcourts is exclusively endorsed by Apple globally as the market leaders in real estate when it comes to IOS technology.
Recently Harcourts was recognized as Australia’s leading real estate training organization.
In New Zealand Harcourts is responsible for 1 in 5 transactions and voted the most trusted brand nationally.
“Our approach to real estate is simple, we work to a set of very clear values, People First, Do the right thing, Be courageous and Fun and Laughter.
We focus on the client’s needs, we listen, we agree a plan and we do what we say we will. It’s the Harcourts Promise.
Communication traditionally is the number one complaint about realtors so we focus on ensuring our clients are communicated with throughout, all information, including weekly update reports are available securely on-line 24/7.
It sounds simple, however, it requires a different approach to the normal brokerage model, our management ratio to Realtors is 1 to 20, not 1 to 100. When someone employs a Harcourts Realtor they know two things:
- They have a full time, professional, well trained Realtor.
- They engage not just the Realtor but the entire Harcourts team including me, our Managing Broker and the Support and Administration team. One team focused on the client” says Hayden Duncan, Harcourts CEO.
It's not just words, you notice the fresh approach the moment you meet a Harcourts person, business attire is a minimum standard and the offices are sharp, light, fresh and inviting. Harcourts is not a household name here yet, however based on their history and the fresh approach to real estate we suspect they will be soon.
