Being one of Reservoir’s real estate “legends” is a title that Harry Kontossis is very humbled by. But after having spent 42 years serving the real estate industry, it is one that has been aptly earned and deserved.
Harry is a Director of Barry Plant Reservoir, Licensed Estate Agent, Accredited Auctioneer and an Associate of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.

In the ensuing years Harry grew the agency, achieving benchmark results throughout the northern suburbs, particularly in both Preston and Reservoir.
1999 saw the EJ Doherty brand merging with the Barry Plant Group, and this successful partnership only helped strengthen Harry’s resolve to continue to provide his community with a real estate agency that prides itself on its credibility, local expertise and exceptional service.

42 Years service is a rare achievement in anyone’s language. Harry’s greatest satisfaction now is being able to assist the children of his past and present clients to purchase their first home or investment property and give expert advice on all real estate matters.
