At Harcourts we have a simple philosophy –
We create success.
Everyone who comes in contact with our organization must be more successful for that interaction. We are committed to helping people achieve their dreams and goals.
This starts with the success of our team. Companies don’t succeed, people do and that is why we focus on the success of each and every member of Team Harcourts. We know that in order for us to achieve our goals as an organization, we must help our team achieve theirs. That is why we focus on providing our people with cutting-edge technology, world-class marketing, and industry-leading training and coaching through the Harcourts Academy, and the systems, support and leadership to be the most dynamic team within our industry.
Of equal importance is the satisfaction of our clients. Harcourts is one team with one focus – to create and deliver a superb client experience. Not only is this the most rewarding way to do business, it also ensures our clients use us again, and recommend us to their family, friends and colleagues.
I wish to personally extend an invitation to you to find out just how Harcourts can support and assist you with the next stage of your career. There is no better choice to secure your future and be a part of a team that is focused on your success. There truly are unlimited opportunities with us!
Managing Director, Harcourts International
Greatness is within you. It’s within all of us. Are you ready to take your career to the next level? You need a team of like-minds and a brand you can trust. At Harcourts, we’re serious about creating success. This is how we do it.
Happy agents = Successful agents.
Successful agents = Inspire and motivate.
Inspiration and Motivation = Better results.
It is not a fancy formula, but it works! And we work extra hard to create a culture people want to be a part of.
But don’t ask us…. Next time you see a Harcourts agent in your area, ask them why they bleed Harcourts blue. Just be prepared for a laundry list of reasons our agents are excited to be part of this organization (you might want to grab a cup of coffee).
Fun and Laughter is one of our core values, and we believe it comes from the top, down.
It is our mission to incorporate fun into every aspect of the business. It’s important to us that our people—the ones who make buying and selling homes for our clients enjoyable—really love what they do.
Everyone is on their own path to success. Why not surround yourself with like minds who remind you to have fun along the journey?
Non-distressed homes. Enhanced seller options. Complete buyer transparency. Auction creates conversation. It’s about time the USA grabbed a hold of this! Our friends down under have been loving this method for 130 years.
Harcourts Auctions is changing the game. We’re giving our agents and our clients a clear point of difference, generating more listings, seeing faster results, and driving higher sales.
The facts speak for themselves:
Over 1,000 Auction listings in Southern California with 93% selling in 24 days
58% of Auction properties were expired listings
42% new-to-market listings ; 0% were distressed, foreclosure or REO
Receive 49% more showings than traditional listings
Average of 102 showings per property
Real support makes all the difference.
We understand your role involves many moving parts; your plate is full.
Lucky for you, juggling is our jam. Think of us as your extra hands - creating,
training, leading, and innovating for you, so you can focus on the end game.
We’re handling the minutia, you set your sight on your target:
Annual Business Leaders Conference
Emphasis on strategies to increase profitability
Technology suite with training
Strategic vendor partnerships
Leadership workshops and business planning
Harcourts Academy development courses
New agent induction packages
Property, agent, and recruitment focused marketing campaigns
Remember why you started? To make a profit.
Don’t be afraid to ask for a little help! We don’t blame you one bit.
When we say we love our people, we mean it. We really love our people. We believe we have a powerful influence - That success doesn’t stop at us. The communities we live in are our lifeblood. If they don’t flourish, we don’t flourish.
In 2008 we launched the Harcourts Foundation, a 100% not-for-profit foundation with one purpose: To give back to the communities we serve.
Over $5 Million donated back to local communities
More than 850 checks given to 686 recipients
Numerous fundraising events held in over 300 locations worldwide
Agents in more than 260 offices donate a percentage of every property sale
Designated Ambassadors in every country
Our National Board of Directors, Harcourts Foundation Coordinator, Accountant, and Regional Ambassadors all donate their time and expertise, meaning 100% of all funds raised go directly to the charities where they are needed most. Now that is something to feel warm and fuzzy about.
We’re expanding. It is happening quickly, organically, and strategically. With USA growth as the #1 priority for Harcourts International and office expansion efforts on fire, we can help you accomplish your next big business goal of becoming a business owner.
Growth across 5 states in 3 years, with laser focus on the West Coast
In 2017 alone, we nearly doubled our agent count in the USA
Opened 15 new offices in 12 months
“Harcourts International has a number of focus areas in the next 3-5 years, however North America remains our number one priority. While growth has been strong, especially around our Auction platform, we are only just scratching the surface. The entire attention of our Group is focused on taking our North American business to the next level.” - Mike Green, Harcourts International Managing Director
The last time we even thought about slowing down… well, we can’t remember. Join us – this is what world domination (or something like that) looks like.
We want people who want to grow with us. We are focused on the success of our people and we stand firmly in our values:
People First, Doing the Right Thing, Being Courageous, Fun and Laughter
These are the words we live by. We take them seriously. Our purpose is to create success. Everyone who comes into contact with a Harcourts team member, whether the interaction be with a colleague, business partner, delivery driver or client, our vision is to create the finest experience.
Our four values lead this behavior. So we’re serious when we say we’re looking for people with an awesome attitude and an uber strong sense of integrity and morale. It’s also no surprise we’re looking for owners and managers who see the importance in taking their business to the next level.
We’re driven. We’re moving fast. We’re building a team of superstars.
We like to consider our brand our greatest masterpiece. It’s evolved into a sweet combination of culture, values, experience, reputation and creativity. We’re pretty happy with it. So happy in fact, we just can’t keep it to ourselves.
We’re painting real estate blue and making ourselves known through:
Dedicated in-house public relations team
Live video syndication for auctions, events, and trainings
Automated newsletters and campaigns targeting agent spheres
Powerful personal and property marketing tools
Vivid imagery, video testimonials, and engaging content for social media
Since 1888, we’ve worked hard to develop a brand that goes beyond the logo. You could say, we’ve earned our stripes. We’ve set a goal to share with the world who we are, what we do differently, and how far we’ve come.
Stay tuned, our masterpiece is just getting started.
It’s pretty simple. If you’re not growing, we’re not growing. Your growth is a top priority of ours. Our strategies and recruitment initiatives are tailored to your goals. Think customizable marketing templates, weekly accountability efforts, daily action scoreboards, CEO involvement with top prospects, scripts and dialogues, the list goes on! Not to mention, our Auction platform is a clear differentiator in the industry, and another reason for agents to join us.
“The Harcourts Recruiting Campaign was the catalyst for my exponential growth. Having amazing marketing, real targets and real accountabilities by way of a weekly call with CEO Rob Forde “holding my feet to the flame” made all the difference in the world. With a luxury brand such as Harcourts, and utilizing the success of our Auction Platform, these things coupled with the training and encouragement given by the corporate team, it emboldened me to spout my “elevator speech” to every agent I met. It’s truly a numbers game, the more you share your excitement for this awesome team you have, the more people become aware of it, and the easier it is to bring agents aboard.”
- Greg Babakhanian, Owner, Harcourts Signature Properties
