The first quarter for 2013 has proven a positive indicator for the year ahead, as Harcourts WA celebrates its best result in 12 months.

The group celebrated the success of its top sales consultants, offices and property managers at its quarterly awards evening earlier this month, with newly appointed CEO Jenny Birrell forecasting a strong year.

“From a results perspective, this quarter has been our strongest in the past 12 months. This is a great way to start the year and puts our group in a solid position for the rest of 2013,” Ms Birrell said.

But the results haven’t just been felt in the mining state.

Last week, the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) claimed the state had its best quarter in over a decade.

“There was an increase in buyers in the December quarter, which has continued through the first quarter of this year with increased volumes, prices, and clearance rates," CEO of the REIV, Enzo Raimondo said.

“Higher sales volumes were recorded with an estimated 66.4 per cent more than the March quarter last year.”

Ms Birrell said the event was a great success, which highlighted how strong Harcourts Western Australia is as a group.

“WA’s property market is really bouncing back and our group’s strong quarterly results have reflected this market growth,” Ms Birrell said.

“At this quarter’s awards we had a great crowd of people who wanted to share in each other’s successes, which created a great atmosphere on the night,” Ms Birrell added.

Thirteen top sales consultants were presented with Platinum Achievement Awards, representing the highest accolade for real estate sales within Harcourts.

Five sales offices were also presented with Platinum Achievement Awards in recognition of their efforts throughout the quarter, including Harcourts Alliance Joondalup, Harcourts Mandurah, Harcourts Busselton, Harcourts Central and Harcourts Realty Plus.
