Har­veys keeps name af­ter sale

South Waikato News - - PROPERTY -

De­spite the fran­chise be­ing sold to an­other real es­tate brand it will be busi­ness as usual for Har­veys Toko­roa.

Har­veys Real Es­tate na­tional of­fice an­nounced last week it had sold to LJ Hooker but the Toko­roa of­fice would con­tinue to op­er­ate as Har­veys.

‘‘We have spent years build­ing our rep­u­ta­tion un­der the Har­veys ban­ner in Toko­roa,’’ fran­chisee Ray John­son said.

‘‘(This) has seen our of­fice awarded Top Sell­ing Of­fice in their cat­e­gory for the past six years in the na­tional Har­veys awards.’’

Mr John­son said the firm had worked hard to ce­ment a solid place in the com­mu­nity by spon­sor­ing, among other things Toko­roa Golf Club, Toko­roa Squash Club and South Waikato Rac­ing Club.

While the com­pany could con­tinue to op­er­ate as Har­veys it would now have ac­cess to a lot more re­sources.

LJ Hooker op­er­ated in more than 700 of­fices in Aus­tralia and New Zealand, and also In­dia, China, Ja­pan, In­done­sia and Hong Kong.

Mr John­son said that net­work would help sell­ers in Toko­roa and sur­round­ing dis­tricts tap into a larger se­lec­tion of pur­chasers in both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets.

The in­creased net­work would also be of as­sis­tance to South Waikato buy­ers who were re­lo­cat­ing, he said.
