The sale process through Harris was seamless, professional, transparent and caring. I felt that our agent team worked hard for the outcome and also engaged professionally with buyers to ensure the environment enabled the best outcome to eventuate for all. We will use Harris for our future real estate needs without hesitation and refer them to our friends and family too.

Richard Bund

We can recommend Phil and his team – they were friendly, professional and exceeded our expectations in their service delivery. We were in the midst of an international move and they made selling our property feel easy despite technology challenges and timing differences. And importantly we achieved an amount we were happy with.

Thanks to Phil and his team!

Derek Meates

Tim and the team at Harris made the process of purchasing our new property effortless and smooth. Great communication and prompt service.


James Bobridge

Would be very happy to recommend Harris RE to family and friends.

Michael Shearer

Harris RE is the best group in South Australia. Phil Harris is an amazing auctioneer (getting me a far better price than I had anticipated) and Anne Einarson is a great agent – she brought in the prospective purchasers and supported me through the wobbles when I wondered if I was doing the right thing in selling my much loved family home. I’ll recommend this group without any hesitation.


Anne Stimson

Connie and I would certainly recommend Harris Real Estate to anyone who is complentating the sale of their property. You can be assured of being assisted by very competent staff and constantly informed of the progress of the sale.

Martin Teekens

We got a great result and are very happy. As a client you really do feel like Harris is extremely well organised. There is an array of people that touch base with you to take on different elements of the sales process, but all seem very knowledgeable and across what everyone else is doing.

Chris Mifsud

Phil Harris has sold us our dream house, it was a pleasure doing business with Harris Real Estate. Phil was great to deal with, no stress or pressure involved.

David Draper

An excellent experience from beginning to final sale and handover.

Tony Adey

Very professional service, an assertive and focussed campaign with outstanding results. Would use only this company again. Highly recommended.

Teri Page

Phil met with my husband and I and after a short conversation it became very clear to me that he was on “the same page as me” when it came down to what we needed to get done in the time frame we had!! On auction day after a difficult start, Phil was still able to negotiate a fair/decent price for our property, which we are very grateful for!  I would like to add that we were extremely happy with Simon’s co-managing the sale of our home and would like to say thank you to him too!

Margy Harker

Phil Harris’ expertise and professionalism together with his relaxed and friendly manner set the tone for our interactions with the whole team at Harris. They inspired us with confidence, they took care of everything, and the results they achieved in marketing the property were far beyond our expectations. I am now recommending Harris to everyone!

Miranda Starke

I wouldnt consider selling a property with anyone but Harris. The service was simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. They treated us like members of the family. They managed to strike the perfect balance between being personalbe and professional. We had complete trust in them and our trust was well and truly rewarded.  We were thrilled with the outcome.

Thanks so much Phil and Sarah and the team.

Owen Ames

We were very pleased with the end result of the sale.

Helen Broome

Excellent – great attention to detail and good communication. Would recommend Harris Real Estate to all our Adelaide friends.

Alastair Macduff

Working in Real Estate Advertising I have a long list of potential agents to use to sell my home.  I felt that Phil Harris would be the right fit for us and at no point did he or his team, Tim Vine/Sarah Stewart or Anna Plag in Marketing let us down.  Thanks, Harris.

Jessica Viney

The property sold after only 3 open inspections fantastic brilliant. Lockie  had a great deal to help me and to guide me through a testing time so thankyou for all your help. I look forward to dealing with Harris realestate in the future with investment properties

Robbie Hill

Phil Harris and his team excelled in every possible way. Their teamwork, personalised service and professionalism made the whole transaction very easy and memorable. Their after-sales service is also second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil Harris to anyone who is contemplating selling or buying.

Giovanna D'Aloisio

Phil and his team provided a professional service of a very high order and achieved an excellent outcome at auction. I received considered and competent advice when needed and regular feedback after every open inspection. Every step in the sales process was well managed. I congratulate Phil and the team in achieving a high distinction for the whole exercise.

Mark Minarelli

Professional, timely and devoid of the usual “salesman speak” for the most part. The auction (after which the property was passed in) was similarly conducted professionally and to the point. Follow up advice was always as promised. I would not hesitate to use Harris again in the future and recommend Tim and Phil to other prospective customers.

Anthony Street

I’d highly recommend Harris Real Estate, be it for property management or sale of a property.

Enza Tudini

I was very impressed by Phil Harris’ style. He is direct, honest and doesn’t indulge in real estate “spin”. His auctioneering technique reflects these qualities. No boring preamble, no dramatics, but gets the desired result.

Pam Renfrey

From the moment I spoke to Phil the genuine service started. Not pushy, but supportive whether I engaged with Harris RE or not. I had spoken with other agents and told Phil that. He was happy for me to select who I felt most comfortable with. I went with Phil and the well oiled machine started. It is clear that everyone involved in the process is trained in their role but importantly for me, they all communicated regularly, followed up to see I was satisfied with the progress. It certainly makes you confident that you’re being looked after. Phil rang  to inform me everything was in motion for a good campaign and first open. He rang from Melbourne to keep me posted with the offers being put forward and advised not to jump at the first one, even though it was above my expectations. We waited the week after the first open and 8 days later the property was sold. Phil’s negotiation skills and intuitive timing were fantastic.  Of course it’s the team work that makes it all happen and come together. Thanks to the following for their emails, phone calls and messages. Mikaela Medwell – Website Marketing, for a a stunning set of photos for a typical 50’s house, ( the photographers were also great ), the brochure and website were excellent; Linda Hodge – Finance, Sarah Stewart –  Sales Team; Colleen Clark – Sales Admin and Team Leader, Melissa Clark – Sales Admin, and of course Phil Harris and Tim Vine – agents for the property.  Thanks to a genuine, professional and efficient team of people.

Rud Moraw

I would just like to say Pam and I we’re very impressed with your professional approach to selling our late father’s home. From the first appraisal to following through with the pre promotion  to the actual sales campaign  and eventual sale  your honest approach and knowledge in relation to the market and importantly advice re meeting the market allowed us to achieve a reasonable sale  in what I would consider a relatively  short  period of time . This would certainly appear to be very different to what we had seen with other agents  with properties seemingly on the market for 4 to 6 months or more  and given the state of the market in Adelaide  a very successful result . Pam and I are certainly most  impressed with your performance and would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone requiring an Estate Agent to market their property

Pam Cherry and Rod Dixon

Thank you, Phil Harris and Anne Einarson. We really appreciated your professionalism and honesty. My brother and I greatly appreciate all your efforts, and you all gained the best results for us, and most importantly your support through this difficult time for us. Will definitely use your services again, and would strongly recommend you to anyone. Thank you!

Lynn-Anne Gill

I was delighted by the professional and streamlined approach that Phil and the team at Harris Real Estate provided recently. They gave a realistic market appraisal and great advice on the sales strategy and presentation of the property. They supported this with regular updates during the marketing campaign and we were successful in a prompt sale. They then assisted in a smooth settlement whilst I was overseas.

Peter Altree

Phil Harris and his team were great when it came to selling our property. First and foremost, they were open, honest and approachable at any time. They are very supportive during this stressful time of your life and do whatever they can to make it less stressful!

Chrissy Psevdos

We were very happy with Harris Real Estate as our property sold within 2 weeks of press ads starting and pleased with the 30-day settlement Phil managed to negotiate for us before the auction. We were overseas when the property was on the market and sold but were kept informed at all times and good communication.

Roger Pinches

Excellent service… professional, prompt, proactive, informative and knowledgeable. From now on I will recommend to all I know to select Harris Real Estate if selling a property.

Petrea Roche

Selling a house is stressful.  Throw in a tough market and some challenging personal circumstances and my stress was huge.  The best decision was to sell with Harris Real Estate.  Their systems, structure and strategy are impressive.  But these simply underpin their core focus – people.  I felt they had my back 100% of the time.  Often I imagined that my name was in big black letters on their wall as their attention to me and selling my house was exceptional.   I mattered and they worked together as a team to show me.  There was no spin.  Only open, direct and transparent communication.  Thank you Phil for leading such a great team and inspiring a culture where people come first.  Thank you to all who work with you to deliver exceptional service. Thank you for selling my house.  Above all, thank you for your care.

Sarah Adcock

A great experience with Harris. Very professional and a definite cut above the competition. We will use Harris again and recommend the name.

Karen Tumbas

When your selling your house it is so important to trust the people and their process.  There was always the honest conversations from the day we started to the day of Auction mixed in with great advice and a calming attitude.  Would not hesitate to buy or sell through this team again.
