Harveys Move into Growing North Wellington

Harveys Move into Growing North Wellington with New Johnsonville Office

Harveys Real Estate has strengthened its position in Wellington with the opening of a new office in Johnsonville. It is the 10th Harveys branch in the region.

Owner Tony Quayle is excited about “starting a new venture in an area that is in a process of real development and growth, both in population and housing.”

“A large mall is in the process of being built, which will also draw crowds to the area,” he says. “And with no major real estate player in Johnsonville, we feel our prospects are very promising.”

Tony will be assisted in the new project by Rod Leach as office manager. Before this, Tony managed a private investigation office for two years after 18 years with the Wellington police force.

While he acknowledges this latest move as “a huge career change, real estate is something I’ve always wanted to do so I jumped at the opportunity.” He sees the connections he formed in the community through policing as a big advantage and is confident that with Rod’s real estate experience they are well placed to grow the business.

The Harveys Johnsonville office is situated on Johnsonville road adjacent to the Mobil petrol station and McDonalds restaurant, providing it with a high profile and convenient location for local sellers and buyers.

Tony says, “We’ll also be working closely with the Kapiti coast office as well as others in the Wellington area. We want to tie in with them to demonstrate our commitment to working as a unified Harveys’ team.”

Harveys Director Ross Hunter says, “We have every confidence in Tony to get the best out of the team at Harveys Johnsonville. The Northern Suburbs is considered to be the growth area of Wellington and we see our new office as integral to this development.”
