“Communication is the key”
– Tim Harris

Communication & Commitment

Tim’s testimonials say it all. 15 years as a top agent with a huge percentage of referral and repeat business confirm that Tim knows how to get the job done. Why is he so successful? It is simple – we live in a world that constantly changes – market conditions, technology, the seasons & the weather and more recently seismic activity – yet Real Estate remains a people business and Tim understands people. To get the best results it is important to know what the customer wants, and more importantly what the customer needs.

Tim believes that communication is the key – and remembering that communication is a two-way process, that involves listening as much, if not more, than telling! Tim describes his approach as ‘responsive’ not dictatorial. He listens to what people tell him, then offers advice – there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution!

Marketing techniques have evolved rapidly in recent years, and Tim’s background in IT and Finance has taught him to embrace technological change. In a world of iPhones, iPads and Facebook, it is important to make sure no stone is left unturned in the search for the ideal buyer for your property.

And once you engage Tim, his commitment is guaranteed – when he says he will do something you know that he will, but don’t take his word for it – read what past clients are saying!


“Having worked with Tim previously, I had no hesitation in approaching him when it came time to market my home for sale. Being my first time taking a property to auction, Tim listened to what I wanted to achieve and provided me with a range of marketing options as well as easing any concerns I had around the process. The campaign on the property was hugely successful, with a fantastic number of viewings, to which I was kept well informed about, including when I went on holiday as Tim went out of him way to make sure I still knew what was happening. Auction day arrived, and because of Tim and auctioneer Phil McGoldrick, I am happy to say that my house sold under the hammer. To see the way the entire team come together to work for me on auction day, reinforces that when you choose Harcourts, not only do you get your chosen agent but you get the entire network too. Tim’s hard working attitude, communication standard and market knowledge are without fault and l would not hesitate to recommend Tim to anyone who is wanting to sell their home.” – Claire Scott

“Tim was at all times professional in his dealings with us. He kept us informed throughout the time the house was on the market. We had a great result and would be happy to recommend Tim to new clients” – Sue Idiens

“Tim has successfully sold 2 of our properties in Christchurch and we would certainly recommend him to others. He was familiar with the problems involved – post earthquake and dealt efficiently and sensitively with the property which was tenanted. He was friendly and professional, a pleasure to work with” – Jeany Marshall
