Harveys South Island Network Expands

28 November 2005

Harveys South Island Network Expands Outside Canterbury

Harveys Real Estate has expanded its network in the South Island, with the opening of a new office in Picton, its first in the Marlborough/Nelson region.

The Picton office is led by Picton real estate identity, Vicki Eastgate, who has more than 13 years real estate experience and a broad knowledge of Picton and the greater Marlborough Sounds area.

Vicki’s vast industry knowledge coupled with the experience of her team will enable Harveys Picton to offer the best commercial, rural and residential sales advice to the Picton community.

Picton, the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds, continues to grow in popularity. Located close to the country’s top wine producing area and only 20 minutes from Blenheim. According to Vicki, the growing tourism market in the area has attracted an increasing number of buyers.

“Properties in Picton and the entire Marlborough area are increasingly sought after, with prices continuing to rise,” she says. “Most buyers are seeking a more laid back safe lifestyle, warmer climate in a fantastic area filled with waterfront activities, but still central to larger centers. “

Harveys opened its first South Island office in Hornby last year, followed by offices in Bishopdale, Temuka, Timaru and St Albans.
