Harveys keeps name after sale
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.
