The Harcourts Smith office is located at 107 Semaphore Rd, Semaphore, in the heart of Adelaide’s Western suburbs - where her family business has been situated for over 30 years. 12 months ago, Ms Smith decided it was time to shake things up, her company had been with the same brand for 30+ years and it was time for a change. Ms Smith concluded that the suitable fit for her company was with the market leading brand, Harcourts.

“Harcourts Smith are all about 6-star service and we wanted to provide for our clients as best as possible. We were also in a growth phase, the office desired to break into the luxury market. Harcourts presented us with the tools to achieve these goals, with strong marketing, luxury branding and support.”, said Ms Smith.

Ms Smith and her team have now been with the Harcourts brand for a year, joining in May 2019. Looking back, the office has achieved many of their goals and encountered success after success - the team has grown, doubling in size. They have broken into the luxury market, setting record prices in multiple Western suburbs.

The growth and innovative marketing that Harcourts Smith have implemented has unquestionably given them the recognition they deserve. Over the past year the Smith office have left an impression on the Harcourts group. Within the first three months Ms Smith was named as the #1 Top Sales Consultant for Number of Settled Sales; #1 Top Auction Lister, and the #3 Top Sales Consultant for Quarter within Harcourts South Australia.

Over the next 9 months the awards kept coming and the team established top positions within Harcourts South Australia. Ms Smith solidified her position as Harcourts South Australia’s #1 Top Sales Consultant for Quarter three times consecutively and finished the year with a bang by taking out the #1 Top Sales Consultant for the year at the Harcourts South Australian Annual Awards.

Ms Smith was then recognised as the national #7 top Sales Consultant, national #1 Top Auction Lister and national #1 Top Sales Consultant - Number of Settled Sales for the year, within the Harcourts Australia group.

Ms Smith stated that this year in real estate has been her best yet - she has attributed her accomplishments to two things: a hard work ethic and aligning her company with Harcourts.

“Harcourts have given me the support and the access to all the platforms that have really highlighted and improved our company. The volume, G.C.I and number of transactions has been our strongest to date. Along with this, the acknowledgement that we have received across the board including awards within REB, REISA and the Harcourts group for our hard work just makes it all that more worthwhile.” - Ms Smith
