Promoted by Xceed.
Two of Perth’s largest independent real estate and property management agencies, Xceed and Harber Real Estate have today merged their two organisations.
The new company will continue to trade as Xceed Real Estate, under the Direction of Xceed CEO, Ray Ellis, whilst Steve Harber will remain part of the progressive sales team.
Ray said the merger represented the bringing together of two reputable agencies and was an opportunity for Xceed to grow their sales force.
“We have been particularly strong in the property management market for some years now and it was time to bolster our sales division.
“Steve’s team are outstanding and have a great reputation in the Perth market, and we are thrilled to have them as part of the Xceed family now.”
Harber Real Estate is WA’s most awarded real estate agency, being named as REIWA’s Top Selling Office fourteen times since it was established in 1995.
“Bringing on board an agency that is the most awarded in the history of REIWA is an honour and we are excited to be working with their team,” Ray said.
The merger will see Xceed’s team go from 20 staff in property management and 5 in sales, to 25 in the property management team and 12 in the sales team.
Their property management portfolio will grow from 2300 to 2830 and current sales listings are now at 101.
Steve Harber said the Harber team was excited to be joining the Xceed brand.
“As an independent and young agency, Xceed have been setting extremely high standards in property management and real estate.
“Their systems, processes and the way they work with clients is second to none and as such was a perfect fit for our team,” he said.
Ray added that the merger was almost serendipitous, as he had been a Landlord with Harber Real Estate when investing in property in the early 2000s.
“It is amazing to think that Harber played a part in my own personal real estate journey all those years ago,” he said.
Under the merger, Harber’s office in Padbury will be re-branded and form the sales division’s headquarters and the Xceed offices in Morley will remain the property management division’s home.
“It is an exciting time for independent real estate agencies in the WA market,” Ray said.
“We have seen exceptional growth in a short period of time, despite a flat market, and I believe this is because of our ability to challenge the status quo and approach the market a little differently,” he said.
