Harcourts Essential’s award-winning office in Tecoma is owned and operated by Jim Georgiou, a well-known and respected local with extensive industry experience and a commitment to seeing clients achieve the most successful possible outcomes.
While Jim purchased the Tecoma office in 2005, he re-branded to Harcourts in 2007, a trusted name Jim is proud of given its innovative technology and marketing, exceptional staff training and its ongoing global expansion. After the office’s rapid success and much support from the local community, Jim relocated the office further up the strip to larger premises in 2011.
While known for his strong sales skills (and the winner of the Novice Auctioneer Award Australia-wide in 2012), Jim is a genuine, local family man and trusted member of the local community. Not your stereotypical agent, Jim puts people first. He offers personalised, attentive attention throughout the entire sales process, with his sincerity and sales success seeing him attract ongoing repeat and referral business.
Jim’s astute negotiation and auctioneering skills make him one of the best in the industry. “Many people aren’t aware that the art of negotiation is indeed an art,” explains Jim, who is highly trained and specialises in the field. He’s also confident in both his estimated sales price – and achieving it. “It’s very rare that our vendors will have to drop their price.”
Jim’s enthusiasm for people and real estate rubs off on the award-winning team he manages and mentors, with the agency’s positive office culture underpinned by quality service and admirable work ethics. While integrity lies at the core of Harcourts Essential, Jim also maintains a good sense of humour. “If the team and our clients are happy at the end of the day,” he adds, “it’s been a very good day.”
Jim, married with two sons who were schooled locally, enjoys quality family time. He also loves traveling the world. An avid fan of ‘the world game’ and an excellent former player and coach both in Australia and overseas, Jim is an active member of the Melbourne Chelsea Supporters Club. Of course, given his love of soccer and exploring the world, Jim will travel for his sport – and will happily tell you all about it!
Easy to communicate, trustworthy and answered all queries patiently and simply. Made a daunting process straightforward. We would recommend Jim to any client.

Jim was fantastic in helping us with the sale of our Belgrave property. He gave us a realistic understanding of the price range we could expect for the house and got us an offer at the top end of that range. Further to that, Jim was great at keeping us informed along the way and being available for additional viewings when prospective buyers wanted to see the house. All in all, there is nothing more we could have asked of Jim.
Jim was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the property we purchased, but at the same time he made the experience very personal and easy. As first home buyers we had many questions and he was always quick to answer them with a smile. Would definitely recommend Jim to family and friends!

Jim was an absolute pleasure to liaise with whilst we were purchasing our home. He was honest, clear, and didn't under quote (which is still something that is quite rare!). His honestly helped us secure our first home and if we know of anyone looking to buy in this area we would certainly recommend him first. Thanks again Jim!!
