Press Release
: : 13 October, 2004

Multiple winner of the 'Keep New Zealand Beautiful - Small Town Award', Feilding, has welcomed a new Harcourts office to its Manawatu township. Renowned for its affordable lifestyle, picturesque gardens, and Edwardian architecture, Feilding's 14,000 population saw its new Harcourts office write $1.6 million worth of residential property sales in its first week alone.

The office opened end of September with Sales Manager Ross Christensen heading a team of eight experienced local sales consultants working in Feilding and Marton in residential, commercial, rural and lifestyle properties.

For owner Kevin Wakelin, the Feilding office is an expansion of his already strong network in the Manawatu and lower North Island region with well established offices in Palmerston North, Foxton, Dannevirke, Taupo, Turangi, and most recently Wanganui.

Manager of the group of offices, Rohan Teaz said, "Having the backing of a large company is an enviable asset. We have strong company support and proven systems that are superior to others I have seen." Mr Teaz added that the strong referral network throughout Harcourts' 170 offices around New Zealand enables clients to stay with one company when buying and selling properties in different parts of the country.

With property currently moving fast in the Manawatu, Mr Teaz is confident of Harcourts Feilding's success. "With the average sale time of a property in Feilding being 21 days, about the same as Palmerston North, the team should be kept busy."

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson, said "We are delighted to be in Feilding with this new office completing another vital link in our international chain of over 330 offices. We know the local and surrounding areas will enjoy the benefits of leading edge training, marketing and systems being delivered by local people with international links. This is what has made Harcourts the number one real estate company in New Zealand and the fastest growing one in Australasia."
