Achieving record prices and slashing days on the market is all in a day’s work for this friendly, fun-loving real estate professional named Salesperson of the Year – Hills 2014.
While unquestionably a highlight of a wonderful career spanning more than 11 years, Arabella remains refreshingly grounded and humble in the face of success which has also seen her crowned Top Hills Agent 2011-2015.
Maybe it’s her broad smile, her evident love for her clients or her irrepressible conviction that all things are possible that make her such an outstanding agent. Ask her and she’ll tell you that she lives by Richard Branson’s philosophy of ‘screw it, let’s do it’ – a credo that has helped her deliver exceptional results and experiences across a diverse range of property transactions; from units and houses, to, dairies, vineyards, lifestyle properties and equestrian estates.
As a focus for her drive, energy and passion, real estate is the clear winner; in particular those Hills clients lucky enough to enjoy Arabella’s personal touch and unique brand of strategy, presentation, marketing and negotiation. Her accounting background – she has degrees in Commerce and Horse Physiotherapy – has taught her the importance of planning in any campaign’s success. Getting excited with you about your property goals and helping turn them into reality is what it’s all about.
While results speak volumes, Arabella knows that at the end of the day her best assets are her team and the relationships you build in life. Her ability to communicate and build trust has resulted in a loyal fan base only too happy to spread the word. And with her knack of being able to break down barriers and get to the core, it’s little wonder people come to her for advice or just to talk things through.
Arabella was born in the South-East and has called the Hills home since the age of 12. Her children go to school locally and she is still very much part of the equestrian scene, sponsoring and supporting many eventing clubs over the years. As for the future: she has no plans to live or work anywhere other than ‘the land of the long lunch’!
Arabella and her team of very friendly and professional staff made the whole process simple. I will highly recommend Arabella and Harris.
Team Hooper was outstanding. First impressions were spot on. Professional, accommodating, friendly, helpful and efficient. Our property sold within four days of being on the market! We had expressly looked for a female realtor specialising in the Adelaide Hills. We were after someone who understood the lifestyle choice we had made when wanting to make the move to the Hills and then also why we had sadly decided to sell. Thank you all for making this process so positive for us!
Absolutely fantastic, could not have asked for a more professional, efficient and friendly team to sell our home. Use Team Hooper, you will not be disappointed!
The whole team at Harris runs on well-oiled wheels. We felt well-supported through the process of selling our home. We were given good advice, based on sound knowledge of the market, and everyone involved was friendly, approachable, and always professional. The sale was handled efficiently and the whole process was quick and painless, and the best thing of all was that the sale price was higher than we had expected. An excellent result all round.
Known to be the best agent in the Hils, Arabella and the team at Harris in Stirling were exceptional. We recommend them to anyone serious about selling their home in the Adelaide Hills.
The Hooper team could not have been more supportive. Phone calls always returned within a reasonable timeframe, I was kept informed with weekly reports and calls from the various team members. If you want a young, dynamic, attentive team to assist you in real estate matters in the inner hills area, we highly recommend Team Hooper!
Fabulous – everyone was great – from Arabella to Elle to Suzie to Rowena and Duncan… friendly and professional.
Excellent, friendly staff who go out of their way to help. I was very happy with Harris’ service. I will contact them for any further real estate needs I have in the future.
Great company to deal with, friendly and helpful, loved dealing with them when purchasing my home.
We greatly appreciated the personal service from Arabella and the staff at Harris RE in purchasing our property. Everyone went out of their way to make the purchase and moving in a success.
The Harris / Hooper Team would always be my go-to team for home sales in the Adelaide Hills. Well done and thank you once more, Arabella!
All things were handled quickly and efficiently.
Arabella Hooper achieved a great result for us in the sale of our property through her professionalism and hard work. The team at Harris Real Estate were all friendly, competent and excellent communicators. We felt all involved were working in our best interests at all times. Highly recommended.
Very professional team who are always polite and friendly. Prompt and straightforward service. Pleasure to deal with.
Great team approach by Harris RE. Achieved a result for us with very little fuss and friendly professionalism. Highly recommended.
This was the third property we have sold in ten years and we had a firm idea of matching an agent with our property. Arabella Hooper was just the right agent to work for us. Positive and professional with a happy disposition and contagious confidence! A true Hills expert! (And we knew the pink sign out the front would match the rhododendrons).
Basically, we cannot speak highly enough of our total experience selling through Harris Real Estate. Everyone was superb and the efficiency was outstanding. A great experience that exceeded all expectations.
I highly recommend Harris Real Estate’s Arabella Hooper and her team to look after your property in a professional manner, but also in a way that it made it easy to express concerns, ask for last minute changes, and never to be made to feel a nuisance. Sold in one open – could not have asked for more.
I can’t recommend Arabella Hooper and Suzie Wilson enough. They are a great team. Their honest, bright and affable nature shone through. At one stage the going got tough with our purchasers who were having finance issues. I was overseas at the time but felt confident leaving all dealings in the hands of Arabella who has such extensive knowledge of real estate and appropriate avenues for sale. Very happy with their approach and professionalism. Very pleased we chose Harris and Arabella Hooper to sell our property.
The team at Harris, led by Arabella Hooper, were a pleasure to work with. They exceeded our expectations with service and results!
I couldn’t recommend team Hooper and Harris real estate highly enough. Arabella, Elle and Chanel are highly personable, proactive and straight talkers who act in the best interests of their vendors and buyers. Throughout our journey of house-hunting, we developed a great rapport with Arabella and Elle and quickly grew to trust and respect their approach and professionalism. Pre-release Facebook posts, direct text messages and phone calls greatly aided our search and in every instance homes were presented and marketed with the ‘Harris’ touch. We were thrilled to buy our dream home through Harris!
If selling a property Team Hooper should be your first and only choice.
The Harris team were professional and committed to getting the best outcome for our sale but what we appreciated most was their genuine warmth and connection with us and our family during the entire process.
So pleased we chose Arabella and her team at Harris Stirling – they were a pleasure to deal with and delivered just what we had hoped for. I’d happily recommend them to sell!
Arabella and her fantastic team, Elle and Chanel get the job done. There are always curve balls when selling and buying and they just sort it. They are also genuinely great people! Thank you Harris
Harris Real Estate were efficient and focused in their approach to the sale of our property. Their marketing and exposure to the marketplace was to be commended. Arabella was diligent in her communication with us and we appreciated her professional approach.
I cannot speak highly enough of Harris Real Estate and everyone I dealt with. The agents and support staff were amazing and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone selling a property. There was nothing I could find fault with and I would definitely only be using Harris in the future.
To Team Hooper (Girl Power) what an experience, from the start to finish could not be faulted. Time on market to Contract 8 days, To all of Arabella’s team Fantastic, well oiled machine.
