Harcourts North America held their annual National Conference last week in Coronado, California with nearly 300 attendees and international guests visiting from South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
The conference was a huge two-day event filled with daytime workshops featuring world-class speakers, a nighttime networking party, and their national awards gala. The conference gave attendees endless networking opportunities, valuable connections, chances to learn, and a lot of fun along the way.
“The opportunity to spend time with our peers, share ideas, and form new relationships adds to the overall value of an idea-filled, high energy two days,” mentions Rick DeLuca, Regional Director of Harcourts Northwest.
Day one of the two-day event offered a show-stopping conference launch consisting of dueling electric violinists, a surprise Segway entrance from Mike Green, Managing Director of Harcourts International, and opportunities to connect with Harcourts peers, industry leaders, and business partners. Bringing the day to a close was the nautical themed networking party, which included a live band, life-size interactive games, acrobatic showmen, and endless entertainment.
Day two provided further inspiring and industry leading speakers including Karen Jacobsen, voice of Australian Siri, and local as well as international Harcourts team leaders. The event closed with their national gala dinner recognizing incredible achievements made by the Harcourts North American team in the last year. Most notable were the Top 20 Sales Consultants, Top Performing Offices, Harcourts Rising Star of the Year, and Best Presented Office of the Year.
“Across the board, we had an exceptional year with record-breaking figures, and it was exciting to be able to go through their numbers and share those achievements with the North American team,” shares Mike Green, Managing Director of Harcourts International.
At the top of the Harcourts Top 20 sales consultants list and defending his number one position, was Steve O’Brien of Harcourts NV1 in Reno, Nevada. He was followed close behind by Shelley Griffin of Harcourts The Garner Group, in Bend, Oregon, and Brandon Hobbs and Landon Miller of Harcourts Premier Properties in Irvine, California.
“I’m so honored to be recognized for my hard work throughout the year. It’s really rewarding to part of an organization that is so supportive,” shares Shelley Griffin.
At the Titanium level for office achievement awards were Harcourts NV1 and Harcourts Prime Properties Monarch Beach. The two offices held the number one and two spots as top offices in North America based on gross income.
Harcourts Rising Star of the Year award was presented to Corinne Gallagher of Harcourts Sand and Sea in Oceanside, California, who was able to achieve extraordinary sales for the year considering it being her first year in the industry.
Winner of the Best Presented Office of the Year was Harcourts The Garner Group from Bend, Oregon. This office in particular underwent massive renovations to perfect their desired office design and was voted to have the office which best represents the Harcourts brand.
Throughout the conference, Harcourts was not shy when putting one of their core values to the test, and that was Fun and Laughter. From their extensive conference launch and nautical themed networking night, to the black tie awards night gala, all attendees were presented with an exceptionally enjoyable event.
“Every time we spend the two full days at conference together with everyone, it reminds us how important that connection really is,” mentions Regional Director of Harcourts Pacific, Rob Forde.
“This year is all about an awesome experience, and I feel very proud and fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful organization,” continues Forde.
