Bryan Thomson, CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, said, "Property buyers and sellers today are more sophisticated, educated and time poor than ever before. They require real estate professionals who are highly skilled, knowledgeable and systemised to ensure results are consistently delivered on time to expectation. Shaun Cosgrave is a pure professional who delivers for his clients at a level seldom seen in any field. His top ranking has been earned through hard work, commitment, focus and the support of a great team. Harcourts is very proud to have Shaun representing us again as our national champion.”
Brian King, business partner of Harcourts’ five Hamilton offices said having worked with Shaun for many years, “he is not only an incredible professional, but a fantastic team player setting the benchmark for excellence his colleagues aspire to. Our team was also proud to take home many top office and individual awards including three other team members achieving National Top 20 Awards: Annette Weir (Hamilton Chartwell) #14, Sue Hall (Hamilton Dinsdale) #18, and Mario Vesely (Hamilton Hillcrest) #19.
