Harcourts South Africa's Proactive Approach to COVID-19

Feb 26, 2020 8:00:00 AM

We at Harcourts South Africa, together with our international offices, have taken positive steps towards dealing with the COVID-19 virus and the challenges it currently presents to its franchise network, clients, the industry, and the community as a whole.

We have taken the proactive measure of cancelling our upcoming HX Conferences and large events, which were to be held across the country.

This decision was not taken lightly, but we believe it’s the right call to make in line with our values of people first and doing the right thing. Our offices have put measures in place to ensure business is not disrupted as real estate is a long term investment.

There is no doubt that the next few months may well present challenges to many of us.  Our business has always been based on people and delivering the finest client experience. At Harcourts our teams have moved swiftly, introducing increased hygiene protocols at open homes and auctions so that we can continue to service our clients without placing them at risk.”

In anticipation of this situation, we’ve been working on solutions that will assist our team to continue to service their clients amidst this changing environment.
As an industry leader, Harcourts is viewed as a company with a strong people first culture, one that lives its values through the way its people conduct themselves.

The Harcourts Culture is something that we, as a close-knit team, love and are proud to be part of, and it’s what makes us who we are.  Now, more than ever, our culture will support our efforts as a team to adapt to these new circumstances.
