Harcourts' Conference Kicks Off with a Bang

Harcourts' Conference Kicks Off with a Bang

The Harcourts' Annual Conference was held last week, drawing a crowd of nearly 650 to one of the biggest and best real estate industry events.

Commencing last Monday, Harcourts team members were treated to some exceptional keynote presentations from speakers including, extreme adventurer and author, Braam Malherbe, Australian aerial skier, Alisa Camplin, Domino's CEO, Don Meij and founder of Thankyou Water, Daniel Flynn.

The Conference ended on Wednesday evening with the Harcourts National Awards night which celebrated the achievements of Harcourts' top offices, property managers and sales consultants.

Harcourts International Managing Director, Mike Green, said that this year's Harcourts Conference was one of the most motivational and inspiring conferences yet.

"We've heard from some exceptional guest speakers who ensured that our team members will go back to their office with a renewed sense of industry passion and strategies to provide the best world class experience to their clients," Mr Green said.

Mr Green reported that Harcourts has experienced exceptional growth both in Australia and overseas over the past 12 months, having written an all-time record finish for the 2013 financial year.

"Harcourts finished the 2013 financial year with more offices and team members, and an all-time record amount of almost $23 billion in sales," Mr Green said in his opening address.

"Here in Australia, Harcourts New South Wales grew their business by 66 per cent on last year, Harcourts Tasmania increased their figures by 30 per cent, and Harcourts Western Australia's figures increased by 21 per cent.

"We've seen the Harcourts business grow by 21 per cent across Australia and have significantly increased our total market share. These impressive figures are a reflection of the passionate and driven Harcourts team both within Australia and internationally," Mr Green said.

"To really take Harcourts to the next level, our focus for the year ahead is on protecting the client experience. We understand that a brand is no longer just a logo, a brand represents an experience, and as a team, we all must deliver an outstanding experience irrespective of our role, to each and every person who has any contact with Harcourts. " Mr Green added.

In addition, it was also announced that the company's charitable arm, The Harcourts Foundation has now raised over $2.6 million in donations since its establishment in August 2008.

"Raising over $2.6 million for charity is an amazing achievement and it's all down to the support The Harcourts Foundation has received from our team and clients. We will keep adding to this total over the coming months and years," said Mr Green.

The event was held at Jupiter's Hotel and Casino on the Gold Coast.
