For the 5th year in a row, New Zealanders have rated them as #1 for service.
Service matters in this day and age of what is generally “poor service”. Their New Zealand Managing Director Bryan Thomson says, “It’s truly an honour to be awarded the Reader’s Digest Quality Service Gold Award for real estate agencies for a fifth consecutive year”.
With a proud legacy that can be traced back to 1888, Harcourts will continue to provide the best possible service for prospective home buyers. They provide real estate, managing investments and rentals to provide quality service for those looking for expertise.
Their skilled staff across the globe gives them access to a wide referral and marketing network, as well as local professionals who have deep knowledge of the areas where they live and work. Collaborative partnerships with their clients lead to the development of strong relationships and increased performance in the future.
