International real estate group, Harcourts has reported strong growth and a strengthening culture within its Indonesian operations.
Tina Sander, Head of International for Harcourts, says that 2012 was Harcourts Indonesia’s best producing year since the group expanded to the country.
Harcourts Indonesia recently held its annual awards ceremony which was attended by 180 real estate professionals and received representation from all 26 of the group’s offices.
“The Harcourts culture and recognition structure is as strong in Indonesia as it is in Australia, the USA or any of our other operating regions,” Miss Sander said.
At the annual awards ceremony, Tjhin Joeng Jen was named the group’s top agent, while Harcourts Kelapa Gading was named the top office within Indonesia.
Ms Sander is confident that Harcourts Indonesia will continue to grow as the country’s property market continues to boom.
“There are a lot of buyers in the market at the moment. Interest rates are at an all-time low while property prices are soaring to record highs,” Miss Sander said.
“With the demand for housing remaining strong and competition growing, prices are continuing to increase. Indonesia’s economy has experienced consistent growth since 2000 which is very positive for the real estate market,” said Nandar Gunawan, CEO of Harcourts Indonesia.
“Many people want to join the real estate industry in Indonesia due to the current market boom which is incredibly positive news for Harcourts and our growth plans for this year,” Miss Sander said.
“We are currently recruiting a new general manager to assist with the future growth and profitability of our business in Indonesia and overall, it is a very exciting time for our group.”
