Popular Harcourts Business Owner, Jacqui Bartholomeusz has opened a new Ascot office under the Harcourts banner, further enhancing the brand’s increasing popularity across Brisbane’s north.
Having owned, operated and grown the Harcourts Clayfield office for the past 13 years, the past 3 draped in those famous blue colours, Ms Bartholomeusz is no stranger to Ascot, having lived and been an intricate part of the community there for over two decades.
She said opening the new Harcourts Ascot office felt like “going home”, adding she first went into real estate on Ascot’s well-known Racecourse Road.
“It really was a no brainer for me and to now do it with the support of the Harcourts network, makes it all that much better.”
Having begun her Clayfield office independently as a predominantly property management focused agency, Ms Bartholomeusz engaged her sons to come onboard to incorporate a sales side to the business.
It was then that she discovered a yet unknown affiliation with Harcourts.
“Honestly, when I decided to join a franchise, I looked at all the brands, but it was Harcourts that lined up most with my values of always doing the right thing,” she explained.
“It was really important to me that whatever I did, I did it in a credible way and that’s what Harcourts represents. They offer a clean brand, amazing training programs and a real will to help everyone be better, you really do feel like you are part of a much bigger family.”
Harcourts Queensland CEO, Jonathan King, said Ms Bartholomeusz was an incredible leader that absolutely lived the Harcourts values.
“Jacqui is the ultimate team player and a terrific leader,” he explained.
“Always willing to lend a hand Jacqui regularly reaches out to others within the group to offer support in addition to her own team.
“I’m thrilled that Jacqui and her staff have been able to open a second location in Ascot, a region where Harcourts has a very long and successful heritage.
“To have team Bartholomeusz now creating their own legacy within this highly prized and strategic location within Brisbane is something the entire network is incredibly excited about,” Mr King added.
Ms Bartholomeusz said the new Ascot office was one created to welcome everyone, designed to integrate fully into the community.
“The office is located right opposite a very well-known park, Oriel Park, so it is really easy for people to just drop in. To me, community is really important. We don’t want to convey that stereotypical sterile office feel, what we are is part of this amazing community and we really want to be seen as such.”
She added that with a highly skilled and loyal team, great support from Harcourts and a true willingness to “do the right thing”, her offices were sure to go from strength to strength.
