Founded by William Harvey in 1918, Harvey’s has a proud reputation within the residential property market in New Zealand. From its first branch in Napier, Harveys went on to establish a network of branches throughout the North Island, gaining a stronghold in New Zealand's largest residential market, Auckland.
Today Harveys has now merged with the LJ Hooker Group and is one of the leading real estate brands in the country. Characterised by an innovative spirit that changed the face of property marketing in New Zealand. Harveys / LJ Hooker is now a formidable player in not only key residential markets, but some of the country's most sought after rural, waterfront and lifestyle areas.
Harveys / LJ Hooker continues an ambitious growth programme but one that is tempered with sound business principles ensuring a solid foundation to support that growth. Southern Suburbs Realty Ltd is an owner/operated fully affiliated office of the Harveys / LJ Hooker Group operating the Harveys branch of Papakura. Harveys Papakura was established in 1997 and has become a major player in real estate sales in the area and more recently having developed an innovative forward thinking, cutting edge Property Management Division. Owners Darren and Kelly Brady believe that having quality real estate practitioners both from a sales and property management point of view is the reason why the Papakura branch is always at the forefront of the awards and is consistently in the top 5 Harveys / LJ Hooker offices in the country. The fact that we have great staff and coupled with cutting edge e-marketing initiatives which are more suited to today’s market sees our office become the "preferred" selling agency for a large percentage of our local property owners.
Having been ever present in the market place since the 90's has seen us develop an acute sense of social responsibility and attitude and has made us want to become a true part of our local area and join in driving local initiatives promoting our wonderful diverse multi-cultural community.
