Zach Harris
Harcourts Prime Propeties
About Zach

Top Agent Zach Harris – of Harcourts Prime Properties – is a dedicated real estate professional who has built a sturdy reputation as a knowledgeable, hardworking agent who always puts his clients’ best interests front and center. Working primarily in California’s scenic, other-worldly-looking desert communities of Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley and 29 Palms, high in the mountains above Palm Springs, I have been helping many buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals since 2004. Though I may specialize in the aforementioned high-desert communities, I have sold hundreds of homes all over Southern California, aided by my expert and thorough approach to marketing. Professional photography, drone videos and virtual tours ensure that each listing is presented in its best light, and deft utilization of the internet and multiple social media platforms place my clients listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible. I am a listing specialist with marketing techniques to get your property in front the the right Buyer. When I am not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my wife and our 3 children. I love helping others move on to new chapters in life, and to end old ones. I wake up in the mornings energetic, ready to start my day, and giving all glory to God, because I enjoy what I do for a living.
