Lee Perry Inducted to Harcourts Hall of Fame

Jun 8, 2017 3:14:49 AM Share this:

At a Harcourts Australia National Conference gala evening on May 31, Harcourts International inducted Lee Perry of Harcourts Mandurah (WA) into the Harcourts Hall of Fame. Mr Perry joins an exemplary list of real estate professionals who have been recognized for their personal and professional contributions to the successes, growth and stability of Harcourts. 

Described as a person who is always willing to share his knowledge and experience with anyone within Harcourts, Mr. Perry is known as a role model in how to put people first and do the right thing. In fact, Lee Perry was invited to speak at the United States National Conference two years ago as a keynote, sharing his knowledge in sales and relationship building. He left a positive impression on attendees, providing not only top tier business insight but an element of fun and laughter as well.

“Lee has been a long term valued member of our team and has always been an outstanding ambassador of the Harcourts Group both home in Australia and abroad,” said Marcus Williams, CEO Harcourts Group Australia.

“He is always happy to assist all team members to be the best they can possibly be. We’re all so thrilled he was inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame.”

Starting his career in real estate 16 years ago, Mr. Perry found his calling when working in the mines, just one month after he and his wife Diana were married. Deciding fatefully to work one more shift, the decision would be one that changed the course of Lee’s life forever. During the shift, Lee fell five metres onto his side, breaking his pelvis in 4 places which led to 3 months in hospital.

It was during this time of reflection, Lee thought seriously about pursuing his passion for real estate, and chose to go for his qualification.

In the time since starting out, Lee has gone on to become one of Harcourts Australia’s most successful real estate agents, selling more than $400 million (AUD) in real estate and also establishing his own business – Harcourts Mandurah - along with business partners Wayne Davey, Ben Hatch and Clare Seamer

Lee has taken out the top spot, as number one sales consultant in Australia in both 2013 and 2015 – finishing in at number eight internationally that same year - And finishing in the Top 10 for Australia in 2016.

Lee was determined that the people who worked within their office wouldn’t simply feel as though it was a place of business. A place to come in, and sit down at your desk, with your head down. It would be an environment of support, where you felt as though you were part of a group that truly cared about one another, and where people found real enjoyment in what they did, it would be a real family.

Joining him at Conference to celebrate his induction into the Harcourts Hall of Fame was his wife Diana, his children Micayla and Bailan and his parents, Pat and Fred.

Harcourts Hall of Fame members attending the ceremony included: Tony Jenkins, Tony Morrison, Martin Cooper, Bob Wolff, Jo Clifford, Irene Green, John McFadden, Lynette McFadden, Michael Brock, Stephen Dangerfield, Paul Wright, Wendy Lenaghan, Rob McCormack, Martin Millard, Steve Caradoc-Davies, Robert Ketjen.
