Culture & Recognition

Celebrating Success


Events and recognition


Personal achievements deserve to be celebrated and, at Harcourts, we recognise success. After all, success breeds success.

Through regional, national and international award events, industry publications and an internal awards structure, we make sure our people have the opportunity to shine.


The annual Harcourts Conference is a fantastic opportunity to highlight individual and company triumphs.

It is the largest real estate conference in New Zealand and includes international keynote speakers and top performers, combined with networking opportunities and our annual black tie awards dinner. For recognition and celebrating the people who make up Harcourts, this is the must-attend event of the year.

Out business leader events are designed to assist our franchise owners and managers to build exceptional businesses through financial comparison sessions, top national and international speakers, workshops and networking opportunities. These events provide the perfect platform to kick-start each year.

Our Culture

Harcourts has a culture focused on people. When members of Team Harcourts are asked why they joined and remain with the organisation, our culture is the single most given response.

Independent research has found turnover rates within the Harcourts group are up to 65% lower than the industry average.

Harcourts is clear about our purpose – we create success. Everything we do revolves around this purpose and our four values:

  • People first
  • Doing the right thing
  • Being courageous
  • Fun and laughter


Our values guide the decision making and behaviours of our team. This helps create an unforgettable client experience, and encourages our team to work together for the best outcomes.

Our values are also a key driver in growth and staff retention. Harcourts attracts outstanding people which ensures great performance.
