ROY WESTON®Proudly part of the Harcourts group of companies.
The origins of ROY WESTON® date back to 1957 when Mr Roy Weston first used the trade mark in the course of conducting real estate business in Western Australia.
The ROY WESTON® business started franchising in 1983, was incorporated in 1985, and in 1999 became Roy Weston Pty Ltd.
In January 2004, the Harcourts Group (Australia) Pty Ltd, became the owner of Roy Weston Pty Ltd by acquiring 100% of the issued share capital in Roy Weston Pty Ltd. In March 2007 the company name was changed to Harcourts WA Pty Ltd.
Previously, in July 2002, Roy Weston successfully applied an application for the trademark ROY WESTON® in a class relating to real estate affairs.
In recognition of Roy Weston’s services to real estate in West Australia, in 2004 Harcourts WA held a ROY WESTON® loyalty recognition dinner.
In 2006 Harcourts WA informed all its franchisees that they intended to rebrand all ROY WESTON® offices to “Harcourts”, with the change taking full effect on 2007. Harcourts WA continues to use ROY WESTON® as part of its commercial business affairs.
