We’re proud to be Kiwis and your Most Trusted Brand

We’re proud to be Kiwis and your Most Trusted Brand


23 July 2014

For the second year running, Harcourts has been voted New Zealand’s most trusted real estate brand.

Reader’s Digest has today announced its most trusted brands for 2014. It is the second time the real estate category has been voted on, and for the second year Harcourts has come out on top.

Harcourts CEO Hayden Duncan says New Zealanders trust Harcourts as an iconic Kiwi brand, founded in Wellington 126 years ago and still proudly New Zealand owned.

“We are humbled that New Zealanders have voted us their most trusted real estate brand for the second year running. At Harcourts we are absolutely committed to providing an exceptional experience to our clients. This is Harcourts’ heart and soul, and is fundamental to the positive attitude and success of our people.”

94% of New Zealanders say trust equals peace of mind, and Mr Duncan says this is particularly true in real estate.

“When you make the decision to buy or sell your home, it is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make. Understandably people want to deal with sales consultants that have knowledge, expertise, honesty and integrity, and are committed to achieving the best possible result for them.

“That's why we at Harcourts put absolute focus on creating a relationship of trust and respect with every single person who uses our services.”

Harcourts was founded in Wellington in 1888 and has grown to become New Zealand’s largest real estate group, with 175 offices and 1850 sales consultants.
