After 33 years in the real estate industry, one of South Australia’s key figures is preparing for his well-earned retirement.

Gregg Toyama, CEO of Harcourts South Australia, who has spent the last 16 years heading a number of the network’s industry sectors, has announced he’ll begin his retirement in early December 2021.

As head of eBusiness, Mr Toyama was the recipient of REB’s innovator of the year award in 2017 for his role in developing the company’s mobile technology and suite of apps. Apple also recognised the work, naming Harcourts’ tech “best in class” of 2015.

The news of Mr Toyama’s retirement comes off the back of a record year for Harcourts South Australia, having reported achieving a 10 per cent market share in the state for the first time in 2021.

Harcourts’ South Australian property specialists remarked on the leadership, empathy and energy exhibited by Mr Toyama – whom they call GT – throughout his tenure.

Kate Smith, owner of Harcourts Smith in Semaphore, recalled how Mr Toyama welcomed her into the Harcourts community.

GT was pivotal in onboarding and my rebranding to Harcourts in 2019  his support, guidance and banter I will dearly miss,” she said

Kim Shorland, manager and director of Harcourts Adelaide Hills and Collective, said Mr Toyama’s leadership had made the company’s partners in the state feel well looked after.

“Gregg’s passion and enthusiasm for the people within our group is infectious,” she said. “From app development to the box seat for SA, he always had our best interests in hand. Knowing Gregg was at the helm for SA has been really special.”

For Mr Toyama, its those relationships that were central to his enjoyment of his work.

“I have had the honour of meeting and working with special people all over the world over the past 33 years,” he said.

“I’d like to thank everyone that I have had a pleasure to meet and work with within the Harcourts family, especially Mike, Irene, Paul, and Gilbert, for the many opportunities and support over the last 16 years and their special role in my development, both in business and personally, which I am eternally grateful.”
