The rise of a client focused real estate agency. Building a real estate agency, better.

From 5 staff in 2010 to 150 staff and 5 offices today – the Harris success continues. As an industry leader and award-winning South Australian residential sales and property management agency, our intentions, values and integrity remain as strong as day one. But great agencies are not about ego.

They’re about genuinely caring for and doing the right thing by people, investing in them, and using the latest technology to do it. Harris has built a strong reputation based on this philosophy, and a new style of real estate. With passionate leadership, strong mentorship and innovative founder Phil Harris at the helm, Phil’s influence is contagious, so too his reputation for challenging a team to bring out the best in themselves. A highly trained team who’ve learned to think like clients; not agents. The outcome - world-class service, exceptional results and a positive impact on client experience.

Ahead of us? There is no end game. Service is evolutionary, and it starts with a client focus.

Our values that we live by.


Committed to a balanced lifestyle of physical, mental, emotional & spiritual health.


Every team member has a voice. We do what we say.


Love what we do & we do it with passion.


Embrace & drive change to continually make all things better.
