Harcourts - The Property People was first known as Robert R Andrew Real Estate Campbelltown. This office was purchased in 1996 with just a receptionist and a sales person. In three short years this office became one of the best in the Macarthur, managing over 330 properties, and a sales team of three full-time professionals.
Garth and Laura Makowski were critical team members through this rapid growth. In 2001 Garth and Laura were asked to become business partners. Garth became manager of the Sales and Training portfolios, and Laura the manager of Property Management and Adminstration. This proved to be effective, further increasing sales and managed properties.
In May 2004, Robert R Andrew Real Estate Campbelltown joined the already established Dougmal Real Estate group. Later, Garth, Laura and their business partner, Chris Stephandellis, purchased the whole Dougmal Franchise Group and expanded it into the Sydney regions.
In 2008, Dougmal's management decided to go into partnership with Harcourts International. This joint partnership gave the Dougmal group access to better technology and resources, with the aim of being more competitive in the market place.
Then in 2010, Garth and Laura purchased the remaining share of Dougmal Real Estate Campbelltown from their business partner to become the sole owners of Dougmal Real Estate Campbelltown.
