Our difference

Our vision when starting Harcourts Property Centre was to create a real estate agency that presented world-class service for the greater Brisbane region.  And today, that vision is not only becoming a reality, but has now extended from Brisbane out to the greater South Eastern Reaches of our State.

We truly believe Harcourts Property Centre is home to the best people in the industry, who are all committed to providing the very best real estate experience to our clients. I invite you to experience the ‘Property Centre’ difference – as we are certain this will start your journey as our ‘client for life’.

From our story, to our values, knowledge, technology, marketing and partners – this is not a cookie cutter approach to real estate. We are not one size fits all. Ultimately we are client focused, forward thinking, technology leading, property professionals.

Our Story

Harcourts Property Centre was formed in 2016 by current Directors Aaron Brooks and Sam Devlin. However, the story of Harcourts Property Centre is an evolution of over 40 years combined real estate experience.

Previously the CEO of the Harcourts Group in QLD and Australia for well over a decade, Aaron Brooks was instrumental in the set up of the 100 year old NZ founded group here in Australia with Harcourts International MD, Mike Green. Aaron’s tenure of CEO meant he led the group through a huge period of growth from only two offices in QLD to a high of 103 businesses. It was during this period that Aaron Brooks and Sam Devlin first met.

Sam Devlin has experienced a rapid rise across the QLD real estate ranks since 2007. Starting as a PA for an established agent, he then forged ahead as a BDM/Leasing and Property Manager, to then become a salesperson for Harcourts in its Wellington Point branch. Continuing his rise up the ranks, Sam then became a freelance Auctioneer and trainer across QLD and Northern NSW, and ultimately found home in partnering with Aaron Brooks in the Harcourts Property Centre business.

Starting with only six employees and zero properties under management in 2016, Harcourts Property Centre is now recognised throughout Australia as having one of the fastest growing businesses within the industry with over 50 staff from their two branches, over 800 properties currently under management and in excess of over 500 million dollars worth of Brisbane Property transacted. The Harcourts Property Centre Story is one of immense growth but one that is only getting started.

Aaron and Sam’s working relationship has always been forged around mateship and culture – something instilled in their business today. The reason for rapid growth over the last 3 years since inception is because of their obsession with their people, their clients, their technology and doing the right thing.

Our Values

First and foremost our values incorporate;

Our People

We truly believe we have the best agents, property managers and administrators in the business.

Our Clients

From the technology resources we invest in, to the constant training we undertake to assist and improve each of our team members – our biggest focus is that every decision made must be made with our clients’ best interest in mind.

Forward Thinking/One Step Ahead

Rather than being passive in the technology space, the Harcourts Property Centre team believe in adopting technology quickly that will enhance our people’s business and the service provided to our clients. From the leadership team down, staff are encouraged to be on the look out for ways to improve our service offering by keeping an eye out and our ears to the ground for resources that will enhance the businesses service, enhance our clients experience, and enhance the speed at which we can operate as a business.

Doing the Right thing and being courageous

Ultimately this is the hallmark of being the utmost professional. Regardless of whether the outcome is right for us as a business, we are crystal clear that the outcome must be the right thing to do by our client. This also parallels with being courageous – once employed we must continue to be professional, and fight for our clients best (and desired) outcome regardless of the numerous hurdles that get thrown in our path.

“We are people focused, client driven, tech leading, property professionals!”
