Our local Harcourts offices continue to attract plenty of business from outside of our local market. This is partly due to the customer recognition of the Harcourts brand but also our large referral network across the Central Region and Nationally.

Harcourts has 42 offices in the Central Region of New Zealand, 194 offices nationwide and 850 offices globally across 9 countries employing 6800 sales consultants. Not bad for a New Zealand owned company that was founded in Wellington in 1888!

Our Property Management Division continues to grow. Over the last financial year the average rent across our portfolio of clients properties managed has increased from $423.00 per week to $463.00 per week.
