Whilst the proud legacy of Harcourts goes way back to 1888, now as the fastest-growing real estate group in Australasia our total focus is firmly on the future. We are constantly asking how we can improve our systems. How we can offer our clients even higher levels of personal and professional service. And how we can train and equip our people to achieve the best possible results for their clients.
Currently with over 850 offices and 10,000 property professionals throughout Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, USA, Fiji, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada and United Arab Emirates (plus future plans to expand into additional international markets), Harcourts has four key factors which have contributed greatly to our ongoing success... the strength of the Harcourts brand, our superior business and information systems, proven marketing tools and strategies plus our incredibly talented, skilled and committed people.
The premier real estate franchise group
Harcourts started business nearly 120 years ago. Today it is the fastest growing Real Estate brand in Australasia. This record of stability, security, tradition, experience and success is an attribute which can reflect on you as a Harcourts franchisee.
The Harcourts brand
The name "Harcourts" is one of the most recognised in Real Estate. People associate the name with a dynamic, progressive yet respected and experienced real estate business. For prospective clients this validates their confidence in you as a Harcourts real estate agent.
When you commence a Harcourts franchise we want to ensure it will be successful. Considerable assistance is provided by Harcourts professionals to ensure the business has a solid foundation. Harcourts has a large range of national and international supplier partners to assist our franchises and team members.
Our regional support teams redefine the term "full service Real Estate support". These teams are comprised of Real Estate and Business professionals to assist and advise franchisees on all facets of running a successful real estate business, including recruitment, training, marketing, finance, business and staff management.
Training and support is fundamental to the success of any real estate business. Through the Harcourts Academy accredited trainers provide industry leading programs for continuing professional development for principals, managers and their staff to ensure that listing, selling and property management skills are maintained and improved.
Technology and systems
Harcourts is at the forefront of Real Estate technology with a huge range of propriety software including Listing systems, client management and personal marketing, and property campaign management.
Awards and Events
The Harcourts annual conference is the talk of the industry. With national and international presenters combined with the best from our team, this event is much anticipated. Also held at this event is the annual Harcourts national awards evening. In addition Harcourts hold an annual conference just for Business Owners and Managers. Regular regional awards and social functions are also held throughout the year.
Harcourts offices and people have a long history of community giving, knowing that being caring members of the communities where we live, work and play means a better quality of life for everyone. Wanting to make even more of a positive difference, we proudly launched our very own charitable foundation in 2008 – The Harcourts Foundation ‘To provide support that helps, grows, and enriches our communities’.
