Ballina welcomes fast-growing real estate franchise

Ballina welcomes fast-growing real estate franchise

18 May 2016 by James Mitchell 0 comments

Harcourts Ballina opened earlier this month, with owner Steve Leslie excited to be joining the Harcourts team.

Mr Leslie and his wife Natalie are multi-award winning real estate professionals who have been servicing the Ballina area for five years.

Now, firmly considering themselves Northern Rivers locals, their love for the Ballina community is a driving force in their decision to join forces with Harcourts.

“The locals and business owners around Ballina are always friendly, and it’s nice to be known locally,” Mr Leslie said.

“I have been selling real estate for 29 years and Natalie has been a property manager specialist for 23 years, so combined we’re well over the half century.

“We still enjoy an enthusiasm for the industry and for keeping on top of the latest ways to give the very best service to our clients.

“We are a pro-active agency with high ethical standards, and we are continually accessing the latest training to ensure our office is on the cutting edge for our clients,” he said.

Harcourts now operates more than 780 offices in 10 countries. Mr Leslie said the group’s reputation for outstanding culture and a team environment was a major factor in his decision to join.

“Harcourts have four main values, but ‘people first’ and ‘fun and laughter’ resonated with us. That is definitely the ethos of our business – the entire team love being here and it shows in our attitude toward our people,” he said.

“We often receive comments from clients approaching our office about the bright and bubbly welcome they receive.”
