New Zealand’s most trusted real estate brand

New Zealand’s most trusted real estate brand

Press Release: Harcourts

25 July 2013

Harcourts has been voted New Zealand’s most trusted real estate brand.

Reader’s Digest has today announced its most trusted brands for 2013. It is the first time the real estate category has been voted on, and Harcourts has come out on top.

Harcourts New Zealand CEO Hayden Duncan says New Zealanders trust Harcourts as an iconic Kiwi brand. This year marks the group’s 125th birthday celebrations, making Harcourts the oldest real estate group in the country.

Hayden Duncan says as well as this longevity, people respond to the Harcourt’s corporate philosophy of absolute commitment to providing an exceptional experience to clients.

“We don't just pay lip service to our internal mission statement: ‘To create clients for life through the finest service’. It is Harcourts’ heart and soul, and is fundamental to the positive attitude and success of our people.

“We know that real estate clients want to deal with consultants that have knowledge, expertise, honesty and integrity, and are committed to achieving the best possible result for them. Above all, they want to deal with real people - that's why we put absolute focus on creating a relationship of trust and respect with all our clients. We've found that this philosophy is great for achieving personal satisfaction, high morale and continued success.”

Harcourts was founded in Wellington in 1888 by J.B Harcourt and has grown to become New Zealand’s largest real estate group, with 181 offices and 1750 sales consultants. Harcourts NZ is still proudly New Zealand owned.

In 1997 Harcourts expanded into Australia, with the big blue signs going up in all six Australian states, and quickly becoming the fastest growing real estate group in Australasia.

Since 1999 Harcourts has expanded globally, and now boasts more than 800 offices across Fiji, China, Hong Kong, South Africa, Indonesia, the United States and Australasia.
