Major real estate franchise group Harcourts Group Australia marked its 20th anniversary milestone during a three-day conference held 29-31 May at The Star Casino, on the Gold Coast. Kicking off the signature event was a performance by ARIA award winning artists The Veronicas.

The annual conference was a mixture of learning, inspiration and ideas presentations from a variety of noted property leaders mixed with industry networking and strategy sessions, culminating in a gala black-tie awards evening where outstanding performers were recognised across 33 categories in residential and commercial sales, property management and business achievements.

“Our annual awards not only recognise the top achievers across our 400-office network, but the evening also served to honour the tremendous achievement of 20 years as an Australian business,” said Marcus Williams, CEO Harcourts Group Australia.

“I cannot be prouder of the hard work and dedication each team member contributes year in and year out to make Harcourts the best client experience in real estate.

“For Harcourts Group Australia to have achieved a record-breaking result of $11 billion in settled sales over 2016 and reach the #3 position in real estate brands across Australia is simply extraordinary.”
