2013 is an incredibly important year for real estate group, Harcourts as it marks the team’s 125 year anniversary.

The Harcourts brand, originally named Harcourt & Co, was established in 1888 by John Bateman Harcourt, head of one of Wellington’s first families.

Over the past 125 years, Harcourts has experienced astronomical growth, from becoming the largest and most recognised real estate brand in New Zealand to ranking amongst the top three real estate companies within Australia.

Harcourts has also expanded across the globe and now boasts operations in eight countries including Australia, New Zealand, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Africa, and the USA.

In the past 10 years, Harcourts has also launched its own registered training organisation, The Harcourts Academy, as well as its own charitable arm, The Harcourts Foundation which provides support that helps, grows and enriches local communities.

Mike Green, Managing Director of Harcourts International, is thrilled to celebrate this significant milestone throughout 2013.

“As a group, we have managed to achieve some really amazing things over the past 125 years and I feel incredibly privileged to play a part in this organisation.

“Reaching this 125 year milestone is an incredible achievement and 2013 is sure to be a great year full of celebrations in honour of this anniversary,” Mr Green said.
