William Harvey commenced conducting his real estate business in 1918 in the Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand.
Years later, William’s son and family moved to the Auckland with the intention of growing the family business. In 1980 William’s grandson a real estate agent, purchased an office based in Blockhouse Bay. During the next year or so he opened two more offices in Mt Roskill and Green Bay. And expanded the business to include eight offices throughout West Auckland putting Harveys franchising the offices in 1990.
From 1990 to 2004, Ross Hunter and Ross Barraclough purchased Harveys and expanded into other areas growing the brand.
In 2010 LJ Hooker purchased Harveys. 35 offices and most of them rebranded to LJ Hooker. In some areas, there were already LJ Hooker offices in operation so the Harveys offices continued to operate under the Harveys brand. Since 2010 Harveys have opened offices in Warkworth, Queens Street, Papatoetoe, Manurewa and Timaru.
Five of the Harveys offices – Te Atatu Peninsula, Manurewa, Papatoetoe, Papakura and Tokoroa have #1 market share, whilst four others have #2 market share.
