This blog lately has been dominated by accounts of awards bestowed upon our Bend Oregon-based real estate company and the people who make the wheels turn. Deservedly so, in the opinion of your blog author. Be prepared for more as you read this.
One of the benefits of affiliating with an international real estate powerhouse like the Harcourts organization is the atmosphere of competition that exists among the franchisees. Real estate agents are sales driven, after all, and their performance can be measured in exact numbers.
Harcourts USA, the branch that embraces operations in this country, concluded its annual National Conference recently with a festive awards gala. Our Bend delegation carried off a ton of booty from the Palm Springs gathering, competing with agents from 31 sales offices on the West Coast. Many are in the high-dollar Southern California market, where New Zealand-based Harcourts International established a North American beachhead in 2010. The 128-year-old real estate company now operates in 10 countries.
Locally-owned, The Garner Group established a franchise relationship with Harcourts USA in mid-2014. This year’s conference was the first reflecting a full year of production statistics for the Bend real estate company.
