Harcourts Warragul was recently recognised as the top performing agency within the Harcourts Victoria Group at their quarterly awards night in October. It was a Regional Victoria double with Ballarat coming in at number two, and provided sound evidence to the current strength of the regional growth areas versus the decline in metropolitan markets.
Harcourts Judd White in Glen Waverley had previously dominated this space with a long reign at the top of Harcourts Victoria, but the rise of the regional offices coupled with a declining Melbourne market is indicative of what is occurring across the state and beyond.
Evan Broadbent, Managing Director at Harcourts Warragul, was obviously thrilled with the result. “I always believed we had the team, the marketplace, the Harcourts brand behind us, and the work ethics to get there if all of our stars aligned at the right time. They did, and I couldn’t be happier and more proud of the team than I am right now.
“It’s no coincidence that we also collected 15 other awards on the night, including No. 1 Office for service to clients, No. 1 individual agent for service to clients (Jason Lee), and No. 1 for Contribution to the Community. These awards are more important to me than a No. 1 Office ranking but ultimately they correlate each other.
“When you consider there are almost 100 other agencies in the group it’s a very pleasing result, and I would like to thank all of our clients for supporting us and utilising our services across both our sales and property management departments.”
Marcus Williams, Harcourts Australia CEO, said: “Evan and the team from Harcourts Warragul are exemplary of how building a strong bond with the community leads to a successful business. Not only do they donate to the Harcourts Foundation with each property they sell, but their extensive care for the local community has led to the team being awarded the Harcourts Foundation Inspiration Award for the quarter.”
Evan Broadbent opened Harcourts Warragul as a new business in 2012 and his agency services West Gippsland and beyond in residential, rural, lifestyle, commercial and industrial property sales and management.
