Vibrant Grey Lynn Welcomes New Harcourts Office

Vibrant Grey Lynn Welcomes New Harcourts Office

The country’s largest real estate group, Harcourts, opened the doors of its newest Auckland office this week in the vibrant community of Grey Lynn. Harcourts has made a commitment to grow its marketshare in the strategically important Auckland city.

Owned by Stu Jenner, Harcourts Grey Lynn is his eighth Auckland office including Ponsonby, Auckland Central Property Management, Epsom, Mangere Bridge, Mt Albert, Mt Eden, Royal Oak and Remuera. David Hammond is an Executive of the new Grey Lynn office and nearby Ponsonby.

As one of Auckland’s oldest suburbs, Grey Lynn is also well known for its multi-cultural community with one of its most famous sons the writer and MP John A Lee. With its close proximity to the central city, Grey Lynn has over recent months inevitably begun to enjoy ‘gentrification’ and popularity amongst property buyers. Mr Hammond added, “It is becoming quite fashionable and is fast appreciating with property commonly in the $400,000 to $900,000 range.”

He described Grey Lynn as “a very vibrant community where people of many different nationalities enjoy the café and shopping area, which is really starting to develop.” With his smart new office in the heart of Grey Lynn on the corner of Great North and Tuarangi Roads, one of Mr Hammond’s priorities is to build his sales team up to about 20.

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson said given Auckland had the largest population in the country, Grey Lynn gave Harcourts another opportunity to serve Auckland’s real estate needs. “We are the largest real estate group in New Zealand and the fastest growing one in Australia with now over 240 offices. Our growth strategy is clearly focused on increasing our Auckland marketshare and we look forward to announcing the opening of more offices in the Auckland region in the near future.”
