Harcourts History

JB Harcourt was a visionary; a man who redefined the real estate industry and created a part of New Zealand history. In 1879 JB Harcourt purchased a soft goods business in Wellington and renamed it 'Harcourt & Co.' The company flourished with the introduction of "The Register and Property Investors Guide", the forerunner of today's “Harcourts Bluebook”, circulating an impressive 4,000 copies throughout Wellington on the last Saturday of each month. 

Harcourt & Co. continued to be a proud Wellington company until 1980 when it expanded into Auckland. In 1985 Collins Real Estate, merged with Harcourt & Co. to create Harcourts Real Estate Ltd. The new company quickly became a major real estate force in Christchurch.  In 1988, while celebrating 100 years in business, Harcourts' presence across New Zealand grew immeasurably with the introduction of the current franchise model and Harcourts becoming a publicly listed company.

In 1997 Harcourts expanded into Australia, while in 1999, Harcourts has expanded even further  to Fiji, China, Hong Kong, South Africa, Indonesia and the United States. In 2003, Harcourts was accepted as a member of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network.

In 2002 Harcourts launched The Academy, a training academy providing courses for sales, management and administration to ensure that the Harcourts team received the best possible real estate training. The Harcourts Academy gained RTO (Registered Training Organisation) status allowing industry licensing to all Harcourts people attending its programmes.

In 2008 Harcourts launched its own community charity – The Harcourts Foundation.  The Foundation is at the heart of our core values - people first, doing the right thing, being courageous, with fun and laughter. The Harcourts Foundation has raised in excess of $2.3million with 100% of funds going directly back into our communities.

In 2010, Harcourts joined with NAI Global, the fourth largest commercial real estate services group in the world to create NAI Harcourts.
