You'd be forgiven for thinking there hasn't been much happening on the real estate front in 2020, considering the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had not only on the industry but on the community as a whole.
Harcourts Mandurah however has far exceeded all expectations, by this month clocking up more than 4000 registered sales since its inception a decade ago.
Director, Ben Hatch said the figure far outweighed that of their nearest competitor, adding that it did not include conjunctional sales which could see the number closer to 5000.
"It's a massive milestone for us," Mr Hatch said. "Out of 116 agencies that have sold in the Mandurah Greater Region, we currently have 26.17 per cent market share of sold properties."
He said despite the challenges associated with COVID-19, his office and staff had managed to navigate through this unprecedented time with confidence and success.
"We geared up for the worst, but our main focus was on retaining all of our staff, which I'm extremely proud to say that we did. Through the first 6 weeks we realised our buyer demand had increased. With mining gearing up and COVID-19 levels remaining low, I think we will see a lot of people moving to WA," he said.
Harcourts WA State chief Paul Blakeley said the statistics around Harcourts Mandurah for the last 12 months had been nothing short of spectacular, adding that its market share was now almost double its nearest competitor.
"We are extremely proud of their results and their people first approach to business - This is the cornerstone of their success."
