By Kelvin Collins, CEO, Harcourts Highland Real Estate Group Ltd.
Since we established Highland Real Estate Group in 1995, our aim has been to consistently improve and develop as a company and as individuals.
We continually assess our overarching business plan to ensure we remain successful and relevant. We’re at the forefront of technological innovation, using the best tech currently available in real estate. We believe we’re the first real estate company in New Zealand to invest in a property-specific social media marketing platform. And our training has become the benchmark of the industry, resulting in knowledgeable and dedicated real estate professionals who drive our business forward.
These factors have come together to make 2016-17 a record year for us, and I believe our great people are the driving force.
They’ve worked hard to increase our market share in several areas in Otago, listing more properties for sale and writing more contracts than ever before. They’ve managed more than 1,300 rental properties. They’ve dedicated themselves to enhancing their knowledge, providing premium service and putting in that extra bit of work, and it’s paid off: we’ve achieved an average client rating of 9/10 for service.
I’d like to give a particular mention to our top performing real estate consultants for the year. These people have worked extremely hard to make many people’s property dreams a reality. They’ve shown commitment, resolve and the value of a real estate consultant who goes above and beyond.
They, and all of our consultants, property managers and support staff, make me extremely proud to lead Harcourts Otago.
Great work, team.
