An outstanding track record of sales success

Chloe Brewer is a highly regarded agent with eight years of experience in the real estate industry. She returns to Harcourts in 2023, having dedicated the previous three years to specialising in real estate marketing for New Zealand’s largest digital platform. The shift to marketing was a tactical one – an opportunity to gain valuable insights by creating bespoke marketing packages for a diverse range of real estate clients. During this period, Chloe also ran a face-to-face marketing business of her own, leading teams around the South Island and working across a broad range of media.

Alongside her marketing experience, Chloe is a qualified interior designer who has worked on high-end projects throughout Canterbury. This too was an intentional move: arming Chloe with valuable insight into the construction of a home. With an in-depth understanding of materials such as cladding and flooring along with a well-trained eye for space and light, Chloe is well situated to support vendors in making informed choices.

On a personal level, Chloe is energetic, creative and a skilled negotiator. She is determined to continue challenging herself, both professionally and personally, and is someone who loves learning. Outside of work, Chloe is on a journey to expand her budding knowledge of wine, recently completing her certificate in New Zealand Wine with wine expert Celia Hay. She also has a keen interest in architecture, and is currently building her own home with her partner in Christchurch.

Chloe’s unique experience, combined with her natural drive to succeed, make her an incredibly valuable asset to vendors. As part of the Harcourts Holmwood team, Chloe is excited by a fresh approach to real estate: one that is grounded in honesty, dynamism and strong sense of morality. She prides herself on clear, open communication, and champions empathy and sensitivity alongside an outstanding track record of sales success.
