Our Office and Team at Harcourts

Our Harcourts Port Alfred Team



Our mission is simple: to deliver exceptional, personable service and the best possible outcomes for every client we work with. Harcourts have been helping clients since 1888, and today has over 800 offices in 10 countries comprising over 10,000 team members. Our global presence gives us the benefits of a wide referral and marketing network as well as the expertise of local professionals who have deep knowledge of the areas where they live and work.

Harcourts have a unique way of doing things that has served us, and our clients, for over 125 years. We make it our business to understand intimately the way the market and consumers interact, but the key to our success is in understanding how we interact with our clients.

We’d like to think that everyone who works with us is enriched by the experience. We see ourselves as an approachable, perceptive and honest partner, diligent about making sure that our clients’ interest are served and their expectations of real estate transactions are raised a notch or two.

At Harcourts, we like setting and achieving exceptionally high standards.

Building relationships that are strong and meaningful is really important. By building positive relationships with others, we will be happier and more fulfilled and feel more supported, supportive, and connected. The foundation of a strong and fruitful relationship is kindness and sensitivity.
