Harper Property Agents is a thriving real estate agency, property management and strata firm that’s bringing a fresh approach to the Newcastle property market. We’ve taken off our ties, discarded the stuffy suits, and thrown away old-world ways of thinking in favour of an energetic new approach that keeps pace with the challenges of the fast-moving modern market. Our passionate group of real estate professionals are highly trained in cutting-edge sales strategies and negotiation techniques, and we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to secure the best possible deal for all our clients. We’ll move mountains to help you achieve your lifestyle aspirations or investment goals, but that doesn’t mean we’ll tell you tall tales just to win your business. We’re much more interested in delivering real-world results and building long-term relationships based on trust, open communication and transparency.
