Lydenburg property consumers pick Harcourts

The Harcourts brand is finding favour among property buyers and sellers in the Mpumalanga town of Lydenburg.
“Our conversion from the Homenet brand to Harcourts at the end of last year has elicited an amazing reaction in the market,” says owner Mandy Blom. “We have seen a rapid upturn in the number of new clients enquiring about our services and have reconnected to many old clients who bought or sold property through our office in years past.
“There was strong interest in family homes during December and early January as new mine employees and other people relocating to the Lydenburg were looking to buy before the start of the new school year, and our office attracted many of these buyers thanks to the novel Harcourts branding.
“The fact that we now have full international exposure through Harcourts International has also piqued the interest of property owners – especially those with guest houses and upmarket homes who are keen to expose their properties to a worldwide market,” Blom says.
Harcourts is the fastest-growing real estate group in Australia and the biggest in New Zealand. It also operates in China, Fiji, Indonesia, Singapore and Zambia and has been rates by world real estate authority Stefan Swanepoel as one of the top five international real estate brands.
Martin Schultheiss, CEO of Harcourts Africa, says international market exposure is one of the benefits that the global Harcourts group offers local property sellers. “Other benefits include financial and technological resources that allow Harcourts Africa to offering exceptional service to SA property consumers.”
