Harcourts now in Ballito

The international Harcourts real estate group is now represented in Ballito on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast, thanks to the rebranding of leading local agency Homenet Ballito.


This follows last year's partnership deal between Harcourts International and South Africa's Homenet group, which has now been renamed Harcourts Africa and is in the process of re-branding all its offices around the country.


Ida Du Plooy, principal of Harcourts Ballito, says the conversion has gone smoothly and she and her team are very excited and proud to become a part of a global real estate organisation.


"Harcourts is a very well established, professional organisation with a 120-year track record that also offers some of the most advanced real estate technology and systems in the world. Its marketing and training methods are also exceptional. Moreover, it offers great networking capabilities and opportunities to ensure international exposure for our clients' properties".


Indeed, says Harcourts Africa CEO Martin Schultheiss, the conversion of Homenet branches to Harcourts is about much more than fresh branding.


"Harcourts offers our principals and agents a whole new way of doing things - a radically different approach to selling real estate, as well as advanced business systems and technologies that other local groups are unlikely to be able to duplicate for several years, if at all.


"This will enable Harcourts Africa members to hold their own in a real estate market that is already becoming much more globalised."


Already the fastest growing real estate group in Australia and the biggest in New Zealand, Harcourts also operates in China, Fiji, Indonesia, Singapore and Zambia and has been rated by world real estate authority Stefan Swanepoel as one of the top five international real estate brands.


It currently has more than 600 offices employing 4000 sales consultants, and sells more than $19,5bn worth of property every year.
