The Harvie Family
The name on our door is actually the name of our owners
Our business name is our family name, which means our family pride is interwoven with every aspect of our business. Not only are we upholding the reputation of the company but the family name and all that comes with it.
As a single office business, our reputation is absolutely dependable and consistent. This is in contrast to our big-name competitors, whose separate offices are independently owned by separate franchise holders. When you work with Harvie Group, you get a family-led team of professionals, completely dedicated to selling or managing your properties.
Chris and Peta have over 50 years of combined experience at Harvie Group. Chris leads the sales team with its 30 years of industry-leading, fast turnaround sales results. Peta leads the property management team, closely supported by their daughters Ciara and Bianca.
The Harvie Approach
We have a team of highly trained professionals, who each know the industry from inside out.
With our combined 50+ years experience in the industry, Harvie Group offers an unmatched range of marketing, sales and property management expertise. Every member of our boutique team has been trained in the ‘Harvie Approach’, meaning that each of our staff has the same dedication, integrity and expertise that will serve your project and convert your buyers. Led by Chris and Peta, the Harvie Group team deliver results that simply can’t be matched by any other Real Estate agency in Australia.
Buying off the Plan
Much more than just a local real estate agency, Harvie Group has successfully struck a rare niche in the property industry. We bring together both expertise in property sales and management, led by our highly specialised project marketing division, working with some of Sydney’s most prestigious residential developments.
Chris Harvie and Peta Harvie each have decades of experience in the property industry, bringing years of involvement in the management and sale of new developments. From sourcing new sites for redevelopment through to sales and marketing for entire multi-unit complexes, we draw from a deep pool of knowledge and resources to ensure a smoothly run project that delivers an end result above and beyond expectations.
Investment / Development
Harvie Group utilise the latest software (used by all leading project managers, property developers and commercial valuers) to generate feasibility studies. This assists with negotiations, on behalf of landowners as well as developers. In scenarios where overall risks and costs involved are not apparent, generated reports provided an educational assessment of understanding to all parties involved.
Over the past thirty years, Harvie Group have forged strong connections with Sydney’s top property lawyers, architects, consultants and other property-related entities and we are able to pass these contacts to our clientele working on large and medium scale developments, along with using their knowledge or expertise when required.
We also have a solid track record in dealing with local councils, particularly in pre-project approval stages. Our services extend to assisting off-shore investors with seeking and securing local investment opportunities. We can also assist with land acquisition (backed by a full analysis), DA approvals, managing consultants and obtaining construction tenders when required. All in all, we are fully equipped to offer investors a turn-key solution for projects of any size.
The Harvie Effect
Harvie Group’s local knowledge brings great results, time and time again.
Harvie Group gets better results faster. Our high quality sales and property management staff, led by Chris & Peta Harvie at all times, respond to every enquiry, armed with detailed product, area and market knowledge. We know everything our customers want to know about each project and property, so we stay with them every step of the journey. That’s why our figures surpass our larger competitors, and why our developer clients keep coming back to us.
Sydney is our backyard – North, South, East and West. And we’re confident no local or International agents deliver the results we are able to. We have a proven track record, with top multinational developers engaging Harvie Group as their exclusive selling agents on some of Sydney’s Landmark projects.
We have one local office that gets results.
Harvie Group’s dedicated team of professionals sells more properties, by understanding the local market better. We know if buyers are not handled correctly on first contact, the enquiry will be lost. Our senior sales staff, led by Chris Harvie, develop strong relationships with local buyers that achieve results. We encourage our global developers to use their own offshore contacts to target key exhibitions and events in China. We can also send our own mandarin speaking sales staff to support your team at these events, if appropriate, to provide that local area and project understanding.
We have the team you can count on, in these uncertain times.
The property market has changed dramatically over the last 3 years. The days are gone where properties can simply sell or let themselves and the payments come in. And now, with the impact of Covid-19, the market is tougher than ever. Combine this with the fact that the local market is already flooded with new developments and empty rentals, only the best real estate agency will achieve results. Harvie Group promises to be there for you and your customers, to deliver the results that only our team can provide.
Melkonian Constructions Pty Ltd.
Chris and the sales team from Harvie group have dealt with us over the last year in selling property. Their level of skill surpasses all competition. Clear, succinct and structured work ethic that worked favourably towards our sales. Meeting targets and keeping us informed with every detail, they truly are great to work with.
Peta and Ciara have dealt with our rental properties for a while. All properties were rented out in minimal time, at a rate that we required. Their due diligence in determining ideal candidates for rent was second to none. I would undoubtably recommend dealing with the team for the best results.
This is a small note to show my appreciation of the work Harvie Group has put in from the day we engaged your group for renting our property. The whole group including Ciara and Sharon chased me for all small and big details that they needed to find a tenant and later to help getting inspections, arranging keys and coordinating all parties.
Chris and Peta from Harvie Group Real Estate have been an enormous help during the whole process of buying a property and finding tenants. As I currently live overseas for work their professional advice and support have been invaluable to me personally. For the day to day ongoing management of my property both Ciara and Sharon are also very professional and responsive to any matters that may arise. The whole experience working with the Harvie Group team has been extremely positive for me and would highly recommend them to any of my friends and family.
