Harcourts and Glen Coutinho to Open Flagship Office in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
February 13, 2019 // Franchising.com // Leading global real estate franchise group, Harcourts International, has announced the expansion of the growing Harcourts USA network. Global real estate pioneer, Glen Coutinho, has joined the Harcourts USA team as Director of Growth & Training, for the Pacific Region, and will become owner of a new office in Beverly Hills.
“We are very pleased to welcome Glen to the Harcourts group,” said Harcourts International Managing Director Mike Green. “Glen is the consummate real estate professional, a great guy, and someone who embraces our Harcourts values. His reputation for providing exceptional client service and continually surpassing expectations is well-known. He has been a good friend of our Group for more than 30 years so to finally have him join the Harcourts team and for us to have the opportunity to work with him is exceptionally exciting."
“Combining Glen’s professionalism and expertise with the Harcourts brand is going to be a very exciting development for us in the Los Angeles market.”
With a career spanning over 30 years, Coutinho’s client service skills are widely recognized, and he is an in-demand speaker and auctioneer. He is a director of RT Edgar Boroondara, in Melbourne, Australia, and has been amongst the top 10 real estate agents in Australia for the past six years running. In Australia, Coutinho is a licensed auctioneer and has conducted over 8000 auctions to date in his career.
As a keynote speaker for Harcourts Australia and Harcourts New Zealand events, Coutinho sees this new chapter as an extension of a long relationship with Harcourts owners Mike & Irene Green and Paul Wright.
“With two of my sons recording music in LA, the opportunity to work with an established brand with people I already know and trust here in the USA was a simple fit,” said Coutinho.
“I am a customer service fanatic and I enjoy having the same values as the company. The core value of ‘People First’ is one that resonates with me at the heart of everything I do, in my professional and person life.”
Coutinho's new book “The People Lover” will be released internationally in 2019.
Coutinho is the director of the new office located on Camden Drive in Beverly Hills, one street from the iconic Rodeo Drive, which focuses on selling prestige property and the use of auctions for non-distressed properties. He will be taking over from Alex Duk, who will be a partner in the business along with Deanna C D'Egidio, Krystle & Laurent Bijaoui. Joining them are Coutinho’s daughter Brooke Coutinho and Amy Perceval who have been with him for the last five years in the business.
Together with his wife Simonne, and children Brooke, Jack, Billy, Mason and Jules, the family has made the move to live in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
