NAI Harcourts, est. 2009, emerged from an unmistakable confluence of opportunity and timing.
As the consequences of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) hit the real estate services world in 2009, there emerged a market opportunity to launch a business in Australasia to meet the needs of property owners, developers and occupiers as well as the needs of traditionally independent real estate firms who previously had competed as individual firms. The market was ready for a new and fresh participant created from the culture of accountability that comes from independent ownership yet recognises the importance of being coordinated and consistent in order to deliver quality service and solutions.
NAI Harcourts is the result.
It is a new joint venture which combines the resources of NAI Global, Harcourts International and Brock Real Estate and also the brand under which commercial real estate and business broking services previously provided in New Zealand and Australia under the Harcourts Commercial brand are now delivered.
