What our customers say

See all

We have been greatly impressed by Jo’s openness, sincerity and level of expertise in the sale of our property. She has been consistent in her follow-up on issues discussed, has a sound knowledge of the current market, and has always reported promptly on progress and process. These factors are of paramount importance to all prospective clients. In our opinion Jo exemplifies the qualities necessary for a successful relationship between client and agent.

Barbara Svenson, Sandy Bay

Jo was friendly, approachable, willing to co-ordinate the various aspects of preparing the property for sale and had a good knowledge of the market in Hobart. She went the extra yards to get top dollar for the property.

Aaron Tonna, Sawtell NSW.

I am so glad Jo rang me one day out of the blue to see if I wanted to sell my mum's unit. She said the market was good and was I interested in an appraisal. I was happy for her to do so as she had purchased it 20yrs+ and we had no idea what it was worth and my mums health was failing. Within a few weeks we needed to put her into permanent care. Jo appraised the unit and the family decided it was time to sell. I rang Jo to say that we needed to move forward with the sale and quickly. We met at LJ Hooker for the first time and within 7 days it had sold. Jo was so easy to work with. She was confident with the price and the market. She liaised with the tenant, made suggestions on the best way to present the unit and managed to get a price that suited both us and the buyer, above the asking price. I cannot thank Jo enough for her professional manner and would highly recommend her to sell your property.


Jo Harris was excellent right from the start. Her knowledge of the market and how best to pitch my house gave me great assurance that I was in good hands. Jo's professionalism and attention to detail through every step, took away any concerns or stresses that I may have felt. I really appreciated and valued the communication levels that Jo employs, the incidental messages and phone calls created a sense that my listing was her priority, hence mitigating any stresses. The whole process was seamless really and I would highly recommend Jo Harris to anyone looking to get the best outcome for their property.

Jo was a wonderful agent to buy our property through. She was a great communicator and followed up/chased additional information for us promptly. We felt she operated with honesty and integrity and would be the first agent we'd contact if we decided to sell the property down the track. We didn't test her negotiation skills (but had to fill in the star rating) as our first offer was accepted but all contract administration was easy to understand and hassle free. Thanks again Jo.


Jo is clearly a very talented and experienced agent. Her level of expertise and communication skills throughout the entire process of selling my home, ensued the feeling that the sale of my property was in the very best of hands. Jo acts swiftly and is highly motivated in helping to achieve best price as well as sound contract conditions. My property was on the market for just six days and within this time frame I had received seven offers and the interest on the property did not stop. I achieved a sale price well over my expectation; Jo's strong communication with both parties, covering many different aspects, mitigated any unresolved questions or concerns that either party may have had. Jo's market knowledge, communications, motivation and negotiations left me feeling stress free throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone that was considering buying or purchasing a property.


"We purchased an apartment in Battery Point TAS. Jo was a fantastic communicator, proactive and managed a challenging handover process really well. Jo was able to look after the vendors interest whilst maintaining momentum through the sales process without compromising her integrity, as such we would be happy to deal with Jo as a vendor should the need arise"

Buying my first house was made easy! Great communication and advice, thank you!


Jo has been absolutely wonderful during the process of buying my property. More than helpful, prompt with responses while being professional. Definitely would be happy to have real estate dealings with Jo in the future.


Jo was fantastic to work with. She basically did all the work for me as I was very busy, she kept me well informed and the house sold within a short amount of time.
