Harcourts is proud partner of 2019 Auckland Diwali festival

For the second year in a row, Harcourts is proud to be a major partner of the Auckland Diwali festival.

“Bringing people together and contributing to the communities we live in are at the core of the Harcourts values,” said Harcourts New Zealand Managing Director, Bryan Thomson.

“The Auckland Diwali festival is a wonderful opportunity for our city to come together to celebrate and experience Indian culture. It’s events like this that help create an appreciation for the diversity that we are so fortunate to have here in Auckland. Last year’s festival was fantastic, and we’re absolutely delighted to be a major partner once again this year.”

Harcourts New Zealand has 195 offices across the country and over 2,300 sales consultants who come from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.

“If businesses want to be successful, they need to reflect their communities,” added Thomson. “The diversity of our people helps us understand the needs and values of our diverse communities in Auckland and throughout New Zealand.”

At the Harcourts site, located across from the main stage, this year’s festival-goers will have the opportunity to design a digital rangoli. Traditional rangoli are bright patterns created using rice, sand, flower petals and other materials to encourage Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity to enter people’s homes.  Harcourts has put a modern twist on this ancient Indian art form by taking it digital!

The free, family-friendly festival takes place in Auckland’s Aotea Square over the weekend of 12-13 October and runs from 12pm to 9pm both days. Harcourts will have digital rangoli creators for those who want to get creative. There will also be spot prizes and two $500 Prezzy cards up for grabs.

‘The House that Love Built’ is ready for auction

After six months of hard work and good ol’ Kiwi support, the Building Hope home is ready for auction! And boy, it’s a goodie.

This fabulous four-bedroom home is indeed the dream that its contributors wanted it to be – and soon, it’ll be someone else’s.

Overlooking the reserve in a unique, “almost undiscovered” corner of Hobsonville, the home is in its own piece of paradise. The location is perfect for almost any lifestyle: not too close, and not too far. With Hobsonville Point and Westgate only minutes away, you’ve got shopping entertainment on the doorstep – and yet in a tranquil setting.

The wide doors open out onto the reserve, creating incredible indoor-outdoor flow. Inside is packed with all the features a modern family could ask for. The designer kitchen boasts a stylish scullery complete with built-in coffee machine (and a wine fridge!). There’s also a splendid array of the latest Fisher & Paykel appliances and a vege garden right outside.

Every room has the ‘wow’ factor, but the master bedroom is something else. With an oversized walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite fit for kings, it’s the kind of space that many of us could quite happily see ourselves in.

The best part? All profits raised from the sale of the home will go to Cure Kids.

This is a home with a story. Building Hope was initiated by Landmark Homes North Shore Rodney franchisees Paul and Debbie Brett. Their project manager, Jon Copeland, has a son with a very rare genetic condition.

Having seen the challenges the Copeland family face every day and how Cure Kids have helped them, Paul and Debbie wanted to offer their own support. Building a house looked to be a fine idea – and it was.

In the six months since Building Hope began, over 50 businesses from around the country have contributed by supplying materials, labour or both. Each contribution was made with either a major discount or no charge at all.

As an ambassador for Cure Kids, nine-year-old Corin has spoken at several of the Building Hope milestone events.

The 272 sqm home will be auctioned at 6pm on September 27, Red Nose Day – Cure Kids largest annual appeal. Come along and watch the action unfold – and wear your red nose!
