Harcourts Pacific held their Quarter One Awards Ceremony last week in Carlsbad, California on April 26th, 2018.

Prior to the awards ceremony was a motivational speaking session with Head of Academy for Harcourts International, Melissa Armstrong. The session focused on developing a “GOLDEN” mindset, enabling everyone to find what drives them to achieve higher levels of success.

Straight after the training was the Quarterly Awards Ceremony, including a networking cocktail hour, plated dinner, and a surprise singing performance by Harcourts’ very own, Scott Palermo.

Rounding off a strong month in March, award recipients were honored for their performance as offices, agents, office administrators, and more.

Consistently holding the number one position in the Harcourts Top 20 Sales Consultants category was Steve O’Brien out of Harcourts NV1 in Reno. O’Brien was closely followed by fellow Harcourts NV1 team, the Joshua Fink Group and Harcourts Prime Properties Newport Beach agent, Westley Williams.

Coming in at number 15 on the Top 20 Sales Consultants list, was Harcourts’ Rising Star of the Quarter recipient, Kathy Clark. Clark has only been with Harcourts for a few short months and is already jumping to the top of the charts amongst impressive competition.

“Honestly, sales awards have never brought much value to me, because if I served people and did well, then I was happy,” states Kathy Clark, agent out of Harcourts Prime Properties Newport Beach.

“With that being said, I was stunned and extremely touched by the Rising Star Award, and I now look forward to earning a place in the Top 20 monthly.”

With several Top 20 Sales Consultants coming from Harcourts NV1, it is no surprise they hold the number one position for Top Office in total gross revenue as well. Not only do their consistent agents remain at the top the Top 20 list, but they have agents new to Harcourts joining the list as well. Wayne Moon, new agent out of Harcourts NV1, claimed the number 7 spot on the Top 20 list for the first time, adding to their long list of award recipients.

“It really feels like the team at NV1 is ready to take it to the next level this year,” mentions Regional Director Harcourts Pacific, Rob Forde.

“After finishing 2017 at #1 for USA, I think they now have their sights set on international awards. The business has a magnificent culture and it is great to see them doing well.”

Right behind Harcourts NV1 are Harcourts Prime Properties Monarch Beach and Harcourts Prime Properties Newport Beach. Both also showing impressive total gross revenue.

“Quarter one was an interesting one for us with January and February being slightly off pace of where we wanted to be in terms of closings; however, we made up for it in March,” discusses Forde. “We are in a good market and looking forward to seeing the March results continue through into the second quarter.”

Despite the early struggle in the year, numbers picked up and the ceremony was filled with a lot of energy and charisma. Lead with a strong performance from the one and only Palm Springs Singing REALTOR®, Scott Palermo, the night exemplified one of Harcourts core values, fun and laughter.

Harcourts continues to grow in the US as they have recently acquired two new offices, Harcourts Entourage Realty Group in The Great Park at Irvine and Harcourts Pinnacle in Downtown San Diego.

Along with recent office growth, Harcourts Auctions numbers continue to be strong and serve as a huge point of difference for Harcourts.
