About Us

Every seller is different and every property is a unique offering. But one thing is all-enduring: we’ll achieve the best possible results for your sale.

This is down to the strength of our business and the value we put on communication: listening to you, keeping you in the loop and utilising our widespread reach to maximise the outcome of your property sale.

We’re the largest real estate agency in Otago and our name has become synonymous with great service and outstanding results. We’re known for cutting-edge technology and effective marketing techniques. We harbour a togetherness and a team ethic that is often absent in today’s real estate agencies. And, most importantly, we’re dedicated to delivering on your goals.

Our regional spread gives us detailed and in-depth knowledge of each individual town and village in Otago and — most importantly — the people who live here. We’ve delivered for sellers time and time again and we’re proud to hold an extremely high referral and repeat business rate — previous clients rarely choose another agency after experiencing our customer care and great end results.

Our vast network of active buyers in the region, nationally and internationally gives you the best chance of generating maximal interest in your property. With the power of the largest real estate group in New Zealand behind us, our business is specifically set up to enable buyers and sellers from around the world to come together and mutually achieve their property ambitions.

As part of Harcourts, we’ve been voted New Zealand’s Most Trusted Real Estate Brand for four years running (2012-16). And we think that’s a great word to describe us: “trusted”. To have faith in, to have every confidence in; to be depended on, counted on and sure of.

That’s how our previous clients feel about us and we’re confident our future clients will feel this way, too.


Our business

Highland Real Estate Group Ltd is locally-owned by longstanding Otago residents and we have six offices in the main centres in South Otago, Central Otago and the Queenstown-Lakes region.

We’re franchised to Harcourts, which was established in 1888 and now has nearly 850 offices worldwide. With both national and international scope, we are the leading real estate company in New Zealand.

Our people

Our people are the driving force behind all of our success: they’re enthusiastic, personable and passionate, and they’re a pleasure to work with as they share in your vision and understand your goals.

They’re often awarded for their individual success and are regularly among the best-performing in national and regional results tables.

Our community work

We support our community in any way we can and we’re particularly dedicated to aiding children through schools and youth sports clubs. We donate upwards of six-figures every year to organisations and charities in this field.

A notable sponsorship is our involvement with Otago Rugby: much of our funding goes towards youth development programmes.
