More KZN offices for Harcourts as group keeps growing

International real estate group Harcourts has opened two new offices in KwaZulu-Natal to serve the area stretching from Lion’s River to Hidcote in the Midlands as well as the coastal regions around Glenashley.
These are the latest in a string of new offices that have opened under the powerful new Harcourts Africa brand following the partnership deal late last year between Harcourts International and South Africa’s Homenet group, which then began rebranding all its existing offices.
The new Harcourts Lifestyle office in the Midlands will specialise in residential properties as well as smallholdings and farms and is headed by Liz Fischer, who says: “Now is a good time to prepare for the coming upturn in the property market. The slower market offers an opportunity to get systems and training in place and I am excited about the innovations that Harcourts is bringing to the SA market.”
Waseem Moosa of the new Harcourts Gateway office in Glenashley adds that the Harcourts brand brings proven systems as well as international exposure that will greatly benefit local property buyers and sellers. “The backing of an internationally renowned property brand will sharpen our offering to our clients,” he says.
Harcourts has been rated one of the top five international real estate brands by world real estate authority Stefan Swanepoel. It is also the fastest growing group in Australia and the biggest in New Zealand and operates in China, Fiji, Indonesia, Singapore and Zambia. It currently sells more than $19,5bn worth of property every year.
Harcourts Africa CEO Martin Schultheiss says one of the key aspects of the partnership with the international company was that Homenet, as one of the biggest real estate groups in South Africa, could immediately give Harcourts International a national footprint.
“However, since then, we have also had a constant stream of applications to join Harcourts from other estate agency owners and principals wanting to tap into the new energy we are bringing to the SA real estate market. Indeed, we are currently the fastest growing property group in the country, having added more than 20 new offices in this most difficult of years.”
