Harcourts Pacific hosted their Second Quarter Awards Ceremony for 2018 on July 26th in Carlsbad, California.  The ceremony is known for its energetic recognition of category leaders for Top Sales Consultants, Top Offices, Top Auction Listers and more.

Kicking off the event, Harcourts Pacific held a “success panel” with a superstar lineup of Harcourts agents. Something unique to Harcourts is how open the top performing agents are to share their ‘secrets’ to all other Harcourts agents.

“The more successful we are as a team the more successful we will be as Individuals,” states Regional Director at Harcourts Pacific, Rob Forde.

The main event opened announcing sales consultant achievement awards, where Harcourts celebrated more than 100 agents who achieved more than double the Industry average.

“Any quarter that is a record-breaking quarter is special,” mentions Forde.

"We are a values-based organization with our first value being People First, and our team is living that value supporting friends and colleagues."

Coming in at #1 for Top Sales Consultant of the Quarter, was the ever-consistent, Steve O’Brien from Harcourts NV1 in Reno.  Following close behind was Talechia Plumlee-Baker from Harcourts Ranch & Coast in Rancho Santa Fe, and The Borden Group from Harcourts NV1 in Reno.

Harcourts recognizes several other individual categories including Office Administrator of the Quarter, going to Xiomara Climaco Garcia from Harcourts Bella Vista in Canoga Park, and Harcourts Rising Star of the Quarter, received by Peter Zaayer out of Harcourts Avanti in Solana Beach. 

For top office achievement awards, Top Office Total Gross Revenue for the Quarter went to Harcourts NV1 Reno, and Top Office Total Gross Revenue Per Sales Consultant for the Quarter went to Harcourts Prime Properties Monarch Beach.

“Our Q2 in 2018 was an exceptional quarter for Harcourts NV1,” comments Ryan Borden, Broker at Harcourts NV1.

“We had 7 of our agents in the Top 20 Sales Consultants category, and we were able to secure the Top Office award amongst many elite offices.  We have a relatively low price point here in Reno and being able to achieve these results is due to our consistent focus and hard work,” continues Borden.




The next day on July 27th, Harcourts Northwest held their Quarterly Awards Ceremony in Bend, Oregon, also celebrating the success of their agents throughout the previous quarter. 


Kicking off the event, was their success training that had a noticeable impact on its attendees. 

“The highlight of our quarterly awards ceremony was having an incredibly successful businessman conduct our training session right before the awards began,” mentions Regional Director at Harcourts Northwest, Rick DeLuca.

“Although no experience in real estate, Robert Durfee shared many ideas in the areas of consumer service and sales strategies, which everyone in attendance walked away excited about learning.”

Harcourts Northwest announced their award recipients as the night proceeded. 

A standout office for the quarter was Harcourts The Garner Group from Bend Oregon, setting all-time company production levels in their 15 years of business.  They swept first place in both categories of Top Office Total Gross Revenue for the Quarter, and also Top Office Total Gross Revenue Per Sales Consultant for the Quarter.  

“Hats off to the entire Garner Group for their hard work and dedication to the business,” mentions DeLuca. 

As for individual categories, Harcourts Northwest Rising Star of the Quarter went to Linda Webb from Harcourts NW Oregon Realty Group, and grabbing number one for Top Sales Consultant of the Quarter was Shelley Griffin out of Harcourts The Garner Group.
