The long-standing and successful Harcourts business partnership
of Kevin McKay and David Johnson has launched a third office in
Halswell to extend their service from their Hornby and Barrington
The opening of the new Christchurch office is the realisation of
a plan that has taken some years to come to fruition. While already
servicing Halswell, the partnership had been waiting some time for
suitable Halswell premises to open an office. Rather than continuing
waiting, Mr Johnson and Mr McKay decided to purpose-build architecturally
designed new premises right on the main road.
Mr Johnson said the immediate public response to having an actual
office to visit has been outstanding, especially with the increasing
popularity of Halswell as such a pleasant environment to live in.
In particular Halswell has become renowned for both its many new
subdivisions, as well as access to lifestyle blocks in the greater
and very popular Tai Tapu and Lincoln areas.
Managed by one of Harcourts most successful past Sales Consultants,
Bruce Newman, Harcourts Halswell's sales team provides expertise
in residential, country/lifestyle and commercial. As a resident
himself of nearby Prebbleton, Mr Newman confirmed being a member
of the community not only meant he could provide knowledge through
the perspective of a resident, but was keen to share his enthusiasm
for the area.
CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson, said, "Harcourts
Group has a clear commitment to establish offices in every viable
market in New Zealand to provide every property seller and buyer
access to our services. Halswell is a sought after and vibrant location
and to have two of our most experienced and respected franchise
owners establish this new office to service both existing clients
in Halswell and its surrounds and the many new clients we meet every
day is a major step ahead for our brand. We know Harcourts Halswell
will be a valuable and valued member of its community."
