Guy is one of the best agents I have dealt with and would be very happy to use his services again.
Guy was a fantastic agent and we felt very comfortable with him selling our property. We were pleased to be kept updated with the outcomes of both open and private inspections. We’d happily recommend Guy and the team at Harris to any friends or family who are looking to sell a property.
Guy was professional throughout – from the house inspections through to a phone call post-key-pickup, checking everything is OK. My experience was extremely positive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Guy & Harris to others.

Guy was very knowledgeable and a patient person to deal with.
With the decision to buy land and build instead of buying an existing property, we wanted to be reassured the whole process would go smoothly and without delays. Guy made the process easy and simple to navigate through the paperwork. We felt he was genuine in the dealings we had with him.
The most important thing to us was that Guy kept us informed at all times, treated us like thinking adults. And very importantly achieved a price that we only had dreamed of! I have recommended to lot of friends if they are thinking of selling seriously consider having Guy as their agent.

Guy was always incredibly polite and so patient! He could not have been more helpful.
This was simply an outstanding experience. Guy supported us for 5 years whilst we looked at properties. His professionalism and encouragement went well beyond what we expected. We dealt with many agents/companies in our 5 year search but Guy was an absolute standout. Guy was professional, personable and honest – he is an amazing ambassador for Harris real estate!
Thank you for your great professionalism, honesty and results – oriented approach. Very much appreciated!
Guy appraised my parents’ house and kept me updated with recent Morphettville sales for the next 2 years until we were ready to sell. Because of Guy’s professionalism I didn’t bother with any other real estate agents. Guy did and said all the right things, was always on time for our meetings, followed up with updates as promised and was, and is, an absolute pleasure to deal with. We are very impressed with such a quick and successful sale and would definitely recommend Guy to others.
We were very fortunate to have chosen Guy Barrett to handle the sale of our property. Guy provided valuable guidance in preparing our property and kept us fully informed during the open inspection stage of the sales process. His very professional attitude and attention to detail was a major factor in obtaining a successful outcome. Previously we had experienced Guy’s enthusiasm and dedication as prospective buyers, therefore we did not hesitate to engage is services for the sale our house.
Highly recommend Guy Barrett to sell your property. He knows Real Estate backwards. He sold my property in 5 days at a record price. Would not recommend anyone else.
Guy Barrett is a fantastic agent to work with. When contemplating sales agents it was a no brainer in choosing Harris and entrusting Guys knowledge and experience. Being a development opportunity for potential buyers Guys experience and network made this a smooth sale. Thanks again and I would have no hesitation in recommending Guy to anyone looking to buy or sell.
For the second time this year Guy kicked a goal for me – in this case a 70 metre torpedo. He had my buyer in a matter of days at a price well beyond my (and other local agents) expectations. Top Gun! And every aspect of the sale process was handled by the team with complete aplomb. Bravo Team Harris!
At all times Guy was considerate, patient professional and extremely helpful. We truly cannot thank Guy enough.
Guy and Zac were excellent throughout the purchasing process. They arranged viewings for us outside of the normal open times and were always more then willing to help with any queries. Guy has extended his service keeping in touch through out and informing us of all the stages of purchasing a property. He’s contacted us after we moved in to check all is OK and even sent us a pizza on moving day which went down very well!
