NAI Member of the Year Revealed at Las Vegas Event
NAI Global announced its coveted Member of the Year award at its recent NAI Global Convention in Las Vegas in February. The top international acclaim went to NAI Harcourts in New Zealand. The member company was established in 2009 and has grown exponentially since then, and now is in charge of 61 locations in New Zealand and an additional 14 in Australia. The CEO of NAI Harcourts, Hayden Duncan, commented that the award reflects the growth they have seen in the past year.
Mr. Duncan’s reasoning for their success reflects the NAI Global attitude that locally owned member companies have a knowledge and expertise of their surrounding area that larger chain companies don’t. Couple that with an international network of support and you have a recipe for success. Hayley Duncan is overwhelmed at receiving this accolade, which goes to the member company that most accurately meets characteristics such as to positively represent the NAI brand name, to work closely with other member companies within the network, to drive business and to provide leadership within NAI Global.
NAI Harcourts was previously known as Harcourts International which was established in 1888 in New Zealand. Harcourts International joined with NAI Global to become NAI Harcourts in 2009.
NAI Global is an international network of wholly-owned independent member companies and is the fourth largest commercial real estate services firm internationally. NAI Global was acquired by C-III Capital Partners, LLC in 2012. Andrew Farkas is the CEO and Chairman of C-III and is also CEO of Anubis Advisors, a real estate advisory business that also deals with asset management and distressed debt acquisitions.
