Successfully buying and selling real estate is mostly about fulfilling people's needs and aspirations. That's why Harcourts people not only receive in-depth professional training (the benchmark for the industry) but are also committed to building meaningful and genuine personal relationships with their clients. And the huge volume of referrals and repeat business generated is proof that this works to everyone's satisfaction.
After asking our Harcourts team in 2008 if there was a better way to invest in the communities where we work, live and play, their overwhelming response led to the launch of The Harcourts Foundation in Australia and New Zealand.Our Purpose:
To provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities.
As we grow the Harcourts real estate brand across new countries and markets, we also look forward to building this exciting legacy that is The Harcourts Foundation.
Harcourts Connect is dedicated to helping you move home more easily. They have been successfully connecting customers to their utilities for over 10 years now. They can also arrange your disconnections and other moving necessities.
Whilst the proud legacy of Harcourts goes way back to 1888, 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.
