International real estate group, Harcourts is placing a strong focus on expanding its operations in Hong Kong and China, says Head of International, Tina Sander.

Miss Sander was recently in Hong Kong where the group held its first Recruitment and Press Conference.

Over 250 people attended the event which provided the opportunity for some of the real estate industry’s leading professionals and the media to learn about Harcourts and the group’s expansion plans within Hong Kong and China.

Miss Sander presented at the conference, providing an update on Harcourts’ other international operations including the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia and South Africa, as well as the goals and vision for Harcourts Hong Kong and Harcourts China.

William Wei, General Manager of Harcourts China, also spoke about the group’s recruitment plans throughout China as well as the existing franchise model and the advantages of this.

Joseph Ho, General Manager of Harcourts Hong Kong, presented information about the group’s independent agent structure which is a new concept for the Hong Kong Real Estate market. Our team is confident in launching this new model and is certain that it will create strong results for our agents on the ground in Hong Kong.

The conference also provided an opportunity to publically acknowledge the group’s four new franchises – Harcourts Fusion Property in Macau, Harcourts Harleyland Real Estate, Harcourts Fomento Predial Tai Yun, and Harcourts Great View Property Investment.

“The Harcourts Hong Kong and Harcourts China teams are really focused on up-sklling their independent agents and in turn growing our businesses within both of these countries.
