Topics: New Zealand, News 0

Two lucky homeowners are $10,000 better off after listing their homes with Harcourts. To celebrate 20 years of the Auckland Lantern Festival, Harcourts gave homeowners the chance to win one of two $10,000 prizes when they listed their property with one of its offices between 1 February and 7 April.

The winners Len and Yvonne Williams and Scott Landon were absolutely thrilled when they were contacted about their $10,000 windfall.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to us before,” said Len, who was in a state of disbelief for several minutes after receiving the call.

“Harcourts did a very good job of selling our home for us,” he continued. “We listed our property on the Tuesday and got a call to say we had people coming to view it that day. The paperwork was in front of us with an offer the following morning, which made us very happy indeed.”

Winner Scott Landon said, ‘I can’t believe this has happened to me. I have a hunting trip planned and now thanks to Harcourts, I’ll able to helicopter in and out from my hunting spot. I’m absolutely stoked!”

Congratulations also to Jacky Brock and Karl Hodgson from Tandem Realty Snells Beach, and Jin McAllister and Louie Caunter from Cooper & Co Albany, the Sales Consultants involved in marketing the homes of the delighted winners.

The winners all spoke very highly of the service they received throughout the listing and sales process, a testament to the people-first approach of the sales consultants and the great results they achieved for their clients.

“This is the second year that Harcourts has sponsored the Lantern Festival,” said Bryan Thomson, Managing Director Harcourts New Zealand.” It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the cultural diversity of Auckland and connect with our community.”

“We are thrilled for Len and Yvonne, and Scott, and it is very gratifying to hear that they experienced the highest levels of service from our people.”

Held at the Auckland Domain in February, the Auckland Lantern Festival attracted over 150,000 over the four day event.
