When sales performance is backed by countless client testimonials and some 20 years in this emotional business, you know there’s substance, heart and sensitivity behind the exterior polish of Peter Shizas.
And alongside Peter is Natalie Carapovic, his supportive Professional Assistant. Together as the Shizas Team and under the boutique brand of Harris Real Estate, they share the same honourable values.
The thrill of finding dream homes for families and selling memories for vendors in the fast-paced world of property, the Shizas Team feel blessed to have helped thousands of clients reach incredible goals through their high standards, ethics and genuine hard work.
And through it all, they’ve seen it all. From falling to flourishing markets, their expertise covers investment properties, land subdivisions, off-the-plan projects, but most of all their passion project – mum and dad residential real estate.
From life-long friendships to every kind of emotion, the Shizas Team provide a steady and calming presence through the real estate rollercoaster with every client – sheer elation one day, to frustrating lows the next.
Sometimes, the market doesn’t meet an owner’s expectations but with Peter on your side, you won’t get that attractive “sell” game.
You get real service only great real estate agents understand. Supportive evidence to back price-point claims, availability for those follow-up questions that always surface, and sensitivity to sales which may come about due to death, divorce, or illness.
Offering maturity with experience Peter and his team inevitably arrive at the best possible outcome.
The Shizas Team know when negotiation needs more push and when advice must take a back seat to listening. And when Peter says: “let’s squeeze every drop of potential out of this place,” he’ll advise on renovation spend, presentation and tailored marketing.
And never, ever leave the property to simply “sell itself.”
Right about now, you should feel confident knowing your greatest asset is held in the highest regard and in the most professional hands.
Selling your home, especially for an older person, is rarely easy. Despite this, the Harris Team cover all bases with practical suggestions, professional conduct and empathy for their vendor, walking every step of the journey in a supportive, non-intrusive fashion! Sometimes it is difficult to approach some of the challenges with anything other than feelings of fretfulness and feelings of self-pity. In my experience with them, my sales team appeared oblivious to anything that indicated petulance on the part of the vendor, retained a positive, understanding approach, and did all they could to normalise my set of circumstances whilst waiting for the sticking points to clear. Well done to a great team that stands in solidarity til the job is completed successfully.
Has a great understanding of the market, great level of communication through each stage of the process, really supportive throughout and completely understood how best to sell our property.
I found everyone at Harris Real Estate very pleasant, helpful and efficient. I was kept informed at every step of the process and appreciated the patience and respect that we were shown.
Harris makes you feel like a family member. Always willing to help you and go the extra mile in getting the result you want.
Lines of communication were always open. Promises kept and results met.
Peter Shizas was a delight to work with, and whom we have the utmost respect for his professionalism and articulation of the sales process. He not only exceeded our sales expectation, but his invested interest in our next move has been nothing short of professional. We can’t thank him enough.
Good communication throughout the process.
This was by far the best real estate experience we have had. Peter was exceptionally helpful and made what could have been a very stressful time, much more straightforward. Apart from the great service, another thing that differentiated Harris RE from other agents was the level of honesty. Thank you for selling our house so quickly and easily.
We purchased our new property and sold our family home through Peter Shizas. It could have been a complicated transaction but Peter basically held our hand for the entire 90 day settlement period ensuring all ran smoothly. He knew how emotional this decision was for us to move from our home of 31 years and nothing was too much trouble for him. Thanks for our new home Peter… WE LOVE IT! We would happily recommend both Harris Real Estate and especially Peter to any of our family and friends looking to sell their property.
It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with Peter. He is extremely professional and courteous always keeping us informed. Peter has been so helpful being the conduit with the vendor’s post sale.
Simply, very impressed with Harris through my dealings with Peter Shizas. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Peter & Harris at Prospect to anyone. In fact, I’ve already done it. Peter’s clearly defined strategy and the introduction of his vast list of registered buyers meant I sold after two opens to a registered buyer at a price I was more than happy with.
Happy to recommend Harris Real Estate. Sold my house within the first viewing. 5-star professional service. Cannot praise the staff enough.
I was fortunate enough to have Peter conduct weekly telephone updates in relation to my sale which helped keep my mind at ease during a stressful time.
Very friendly and cooperative – I will definitely keep in touch with Peter for future buying and selling opportunities.
Excellent service, Peter went over and above what I would’ve expected from a real estate agent, which was very refreshing. He is very experienced in the industry and any questions, day or night, was quickly responded too.
We were extremely satisfied with the service and assistance provided by Peter Shizas and Harris Real Estate. Highly recommended.
Peter was excellent. As a purchaser, I couldn’t have asked for more. I will certainly be looking to use Harris Real Estate as my agents when I next sell a property.
Peter and the team at Harris Real Estate, Prospect, made the whole buying transition really smooth and easy. From the first day of inspection until settlement occurred, Peter and the team were very accommodating when answering all our questions and getting things moving along for us. The best thing was that even after settlement happened, the team continued to provide answers and were very open to queries. The team made this whole experience easy and fun!
Extremely happy with the manner, the transaction was managed by Peter. Easy to deal with and will surely recommend to our friends.
Peter and Bianca have gone out of their way to ensure we were kept up to date on every detail and in a very professional manner. We are buying and selling properties via Peter and could not have asked for anything more; he has certainly exceeded our expectations of a property agent.
Peter & his team provided us with a professional & friendly service and achieved a good result.
Peter provided good service with results in a timely manner.
I believe that we had wonderful, professional service. The staff was friendly, always communicated promptly and gave clear understanding regarding all matters. We would certainly engage their services in the future with regard to property selling and have already recommended them to friends.
Very happy with Harris Real Estate. When we met we had a figure in mind as well as a time frame. They exceeded our figure by about $50,000 and sold it before it even went on the market, saving us on advertising fees and the hassle and cost of doing repairs. Would highly recommend them to anyone selling their property!!
All the staff I had dealing with was very professional and of very high standard.
It was a fantastic experience. We did not have any stress as we had experienced with other agents. When a problem did occur Peter was onto it asap. The follow up was great and advice was spot on.
Harris Real Estate recently managed the sale of my home around a complex set of circumstances. Their service was the utmost professional. They went above and beyond my expectations. Their approach was genuine, warm, honest and hardworking. The result was outstanding as was the whole experience. I no longer think of real estate agencies in the same light as I did beforehand. My part seemed effortless because they are so good at what they do. I’m very thankful for all they have done to help me. I recommend them with no hesitation.
We HIGHLY recommend Harris Real Estate – prospect – to anyone purchasing, selling or renting property – Peter, Louie & team have been excellent with their guidance and action in regards to our needs in this space to date and am really looking forward to developing our relationship further.
Kept informed and price range received was in line with expectations discussed with agent. Marketing and sales approach advice provided, which meant we sold quickly.
Excellent service and up to date reports which was very helpful as I am living interstate. The professionalism from Peter is very commendable.
Communications were excellent the whole way through. All of Harris’ staff were most helpful and the suction result was excellent. Everyone seemed warm, friendly and efficient. We highly recommend Harris Real Estate as an excellent company with whom to work.
Peter, Natalie and Lauren were unfaultable. Absolutely outstanding service on all levels. I would have no worries in recommending them to anyone. I can’t believe how easy they made the entire process. Friendly, reliable, honest and just top people. Thank you.
Appreciated Peter’s commitment and attention to our needs. He was consistently efficient with all matters of the sale process. Phil Harris executed an excellent auction!
We have been looked after well by the prospect team for all our rentals ,sales and purchases for a few years now and could not be happier .
very attentive and respectful team – keep up the good work Peter & co
Peter has been excellent communicating often and very helpful We would recommend him to everyone we know
At Harris Real Estate we worked with Peter Shizas and Benjamin Tan as our agents selling our property. Both were consummate professionals. Peter was the lead agent and we could not have been more fortunate in working with an agent who knew precisely what to do to not only secure a sale, but also to build the momentum that resulted in a sale price that well exceeded our expectations. Peter understands the real estate business at every level and our sale success was directly related to the hard work and experience that Peter, Ben and their supporting team at Harris brought to the sale process. Apart from their technical competence, the whole team at Harris were all extremely pleasant to deal with on a personal level.
Peter Shizas and his team were very professional, caring, thorough and always kept us up to date with everything in selling our mum’s house. He understood our personal needs and the emotional feelings of our family home of 80 years. Would highly recommend Peter
Peter Shizas was professional at all times and very thorough during the entire process of purchasing the property. He also maintained contact post the sale and followed up on some issues. I would happily recommend Harris again.
Paul was very professional and friendly. He explained everything I needed to know and answered all my questions. If it wasn’t him, I wouldn’t buy the property. Cheers Paul
