We are pleased to announce the five worthy recipients of the Make Dreams Come True initiative.
This concept was launched by the team to celebrate the successes of the year by giving back to the people who have made those successes possible.
The Davis Family has been in real estate for over 30 years with Mark and Aaron Davis now heading the Harcourts Franchise. Co-Business Owner Mark says -“we are in a game of changing people’s lives through helping them buy and sell homes and making their dreams a reality. We asked ourselves how we could give back a little bit more and opening this idea of making dreams come true to everyone was the only way.”
“In our business we are always trying to be innovative and creative in our solutions and marketing for our clients, so this was a way to stick to our way of business but continue our long standing community support and get rid of the rules and criteria to give everyone a chance.”
With over 80 entries, applicants were asked to write down the reason why they, or the organisation they represented, should be a recipient of one of five $1000 grants to ‘make their dreams come true.’ All they had to do was write 1 page as to why they deserved the grant, have a Harcourts Marlborough salesperson or staff member endorse the application and deliver it to the Harcourts office. Simple - no rules or criteria.
The winning entries were:
Mark Davis says it was very hard to pick just five recipients as the team thought everyone deserved a chance. “We believe that everyone should get a break and this won’t be the last time we share our success with others so they too can have their dreams come true. It has been a very humbling experience and we wish everyone and those winning entries the best of luck, and will be following their progress and experiences with interest.”
The team at Harcourts Marlborough had great success at the recent Harcourts national awards earning three separate top 1st place honours in their group. Aaron Davis also made this year’s Harcourts Auction Champs Open Division final and competed with distinction against his peers at SKYCITY’s Convention Centre in front of 700 people.
