Ms Bartolome is on fast trajectory to business success, drawing on her vast and in-depth exposure to sales, marketing and business development whilst working within the legal and professional services industry to catapult her into the real estate industry serving the Western Australian markets.
“Harcourts is a wonderful, reputable and strong influencing brand. It is a brand filled with people where I have seen and experienced their professionalism and their consistent delivery of high-quality real estate services,” said Ms Bartolome.
“The real estate industry can become extremely focused on transactional based outcomes and many representatives forget that we are assisting real people with real situations, experiences and transitions in their lives. The Harcourts value of ‘People First’ really resonates with me.”
Ms Bartolome went on to note that client experience is core to everything she does. “Always ensuring that the client is at the centre of every conversation is my priority. The beautiful and vast community of Canning Vale was where I grew up and I’m excited about the opportunity to work within it.”
Harcourts Prestige will take over the office space of Harcourts Elite, owned by Donna and David Whitehead, who are relocating their business to South Perth and will rename their Business Harcourts Elite Agents.
“We are excited to see a Harcourts office open in South Perth. This is a key strategic area for us and we are looking forward to further enhancing our brand in such a prominent location. Donna and David will bring a wealth of experience to the community and will quickly make an impact, we are proud to be assisting them in this venture,” said Mr Blakeley.
The Harcourts WA offices have collectively seen a significant increase in market share and market value over the previous 12 months to June 2018.
Harcourts Elite and Harcourts Prestige are amongst the Harcourts national network of 400-plus offices that stretches across six states. In Western Australia alone, there are 27 Harcourts offices across metro and regional areas and more planned for the next quarter.
