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.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Santa Ana?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Santa Ana?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Santa Ana to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Santa Ana is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
