Beautiful Golden Bay Home to Newest Harcourts Team

The owner of one of Harcourts’ most consistently successful and long-standing offices, Paul Hedwig of Harcourts Nelson, has just announced the launch of a dedicated Golden Bay team. Mr Hedwig said Golden Bay had undergone huge changes in recent years, and having owned a property there for 12 years had experienced many of those changes himself. He noted that Takaka and the surrounding area was no longer just the domain of an alternative laid-back culture, with the stunning coastal environment now a key attraction for visitors and residents worldwide.

While having partially serviced the Golden Bay area from his Nelson office for many years, Mr Hedwig said due to the increasing demand for the high level of service Harcourts offered its clients, a clear need for a resident team had been established.

Harcourts now provided its Golden Bay clients with not only residential property expertise, but farming, lifestyle and dedicated commercial property expertise due to the close ties with Harcourts’ dominant Nelson office. Mr Hedwig emphasised Harcourts’ strong international links, referral systems, and having the most visited real estate group website in the country ensured clients enjoyed extensive and sophisticated marketing programmes to achieve outstanding property results.

With a clientele based in the sweeping bay bordered each end by the internationally renowned Abel Tasman and Heaphy tracks, the Golden Bay team members were at this stage working from their home bases with a prominent Takaka main street window displaying listings. Mr Hedwig described the experienced multinational team headed by Brian Devonshire (AREINZ), with Susan Devonshire, Nikki Ryan, Brad Harwood-Heising (ex USA), and Monika Stompe (ex Austria), as “five people passionate about living in Golden Bay and keen to offer their services and international links”.

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson, said, “The opening of any new office is an exciting time for our group as each new location adds to our national and international coverage providing our clients with direct access to buyers and sellers throughout the world, particular in areas like Golden Bay which is now so multinational. As someone born and bred in the Nelson district, this office opening is personally very satisfying to see and with one of our leading business owners at the helm we know it will be massively successful.”
