Flurry of Excitement in Real Estate Industry

3 October 2005

Significant Appointment and New Top End Office Creates Flurry of Excitement in Real Estate Industry

This month’s announcement welcoming one of the most recognised and successful figures in the Auckland real estate industry, Christine Fowler, to head up the newly opened Harcourts Howick Village office has created a flurry of enquiry from other consultants to join top Harcourts Business Owners, Graham Viall and David Clifton as they continue to expand their operation.

With over 18 years of industry experience, Ms Fowler is renowned for working in the “top end” of Auckland’s Eastern Suburbs and has been recognised as a No. 1 Sales Consultant and achieved prizes in almost every major awards category in the industry on many occasions.

She heads the new Harcourts Howick Village office just opened in the “stunning” former Public Trust building with the latest technology and top of the line furnishings for what Mr Viall described as “an office and team that is set to take real estate in New Zealand to another level.” He added that the news that Harcourts Howick Village was opening under the management of Ms Fowler immediately resulted in a steady stream of enquiries from experienced industry consultants looking to join.

Since launching their partnership by taking over the ownership of Harcourts’ Pakuranga and Howick offices earlier this earlier this year in what Mr Clifton described as, “the most diverse range of real estate in New Zealand from first home buyers to a huge amount of waterfront and extensive new subdivisions,” the plan has always been to open more offices with the right industry professionals.

Mr Viall was one of Harcourts’ founding franchise owners in 1991 and currently owns Harcourts offices in Pukekohe, Manuwera, Papakura, and Papakura Rural. Mr Clifton is well-known in the industry Australasian-wide for his auction expertise and as a former Melbourne multi-business owner. He joined Harcourts in 1999 to head its Auction division, and has called over 9,000 auctions.

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson said, “To have an individual of the quality of Christine Fowler choose Harcourts as her preferred brand is a massive compliment. Our aim is and always will be to attract and develop outstanding individuals and teams to ensure our clients experience the very best professional level of service and results during and after their real estate transaction. We look forward to helping and assisting Christine, David and Graham as they build a magnificent office at Howick Village.”
