Appointment Gives Dunedin Real Estate Shake-Up

Dunedin Real Estate Shake-Up with Top Harcourts Appointment

The recent move of one of New Zealand’s most successful real estate professionals to Harcourts Dunedin has ‘shaken-up’ the local industry, and provided a strong focus to grow his business, according to Harcourts Dunedin Business Owner, Chris Kennedy.

The appointment of the well-known and highly regarded Kay Lucas as Sales Manager to Harcourts Dunedin certainly surprised the industry when they saw her move from the Dunedin office where she had achieved No. 1 for Dunedin, No. 1 for South Island, No. 1 in New Zealand for Auctions/Tenders and No. 2 for Sales Numbers and No. 2 Sales Consultant in New Zealand overall.

With around 10 years industry experience, Mr Kennedy said Ms Lucas is renowned as a local personality for her integrity, credibility and energy. He added that it was a huge compliment to his own team that such a highly sought-after professional chose to join them above every other local real estate company which would have gladly welcomed her.

Ms Lucas said it was the Harcourts culture, systems and ongoing support which attracted her to the brand. And having now attended a number of training programmes since joining Harcourts, she added, “The potential to grow and build a strong career path as far as you wish to take it is such an opportunity in this industry. Harcourts has surpassed everything I expected.”

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson said, “Harcourts’ strong focus on strategic growth in recent months throughout Australasia has resulted in many top level appointments, and to have someone so highly sought after like Kay Lucas to head our Dunedin sales team is incredibly high praise for our brand.”

He added, “The impact of having Kay on our team sends out a very public message that Harcourts is increasingly the preferred brand for elite industry performers like her which can only serve to increase the level of excellence we strive to provide our clients with.”
