About Harper

First and foremost, Harper is a people person with a big heart and a positive attitude.

With sincere warmth, patience and kindness, she loves helping others realize their dream of home ownership. Whether it’s buying or selling a country cottage, a luxury estate, or bare piece of land to build a dream home on, Harper is a master communicator and negotiator, and she works tirelessly to ensure a smooth and successful real estate transaction.

Harper’s passion for real estate, architecture, and design started at an early age. Growing up in San Francisco, she was fascinated by the eclectic and unique mix of styles that surrounded her every day. She earned her degree in Mass Media and Communications, as well as studied alternative and Ayurvedic medicine and all things art related. She’s traveled the world to explore her love of architecture, including the Alhambra in Spain, Venice, Italy, Prague, Morocco, Bali and beyond.

Moving to Sonoma County 14 years ago, Harper has extensive knowledge of the area, its microclimates, neighborhoods, and schools. She also owns and helps operate an award-winning business and art gallery in Sebastopol with her husband. She lives in West Sonoma County with her family and spends her free time searching for the next beach to vacation on, gardening, being outdoors, collecting art, or finger painting with her children.

Client Testimonials

""Harper Nolan is simply topnotch. She soars above and beyond the call of duty with keen savvy, local advantageous knowledge, a big heart and an ever attentive ear for her clients requests. Harper is exceptional in her communication skills and maintained a valuable lifeline for us throughout our entire home buying process. This, for us, was significant and reassuring from beginning to end. Her professionalism and work ethic are impressive. Facing having to move for the third time in less than one year - to rent yet again - thanks to Harper, we now own our forever home. It is one that dreams are made of. Making our dream a reality felt daunting and near impossible, but once we had Harper - she took up our hands and led the charge with grace, humor, diligence and a fantastic positive energy. We are extremely grateful for getting lucky with such a first-rate agent!"

""Sonoma County is full of great people and Harper is one of them. Working with her was great and she really went the extra mile to help me find a home that suited my taste and my budget. She is very knowledgeable of Sonoma County and was a pleasure to work with. She was always communicative and made herself available for questions and appointments, often outside of normal business hours. We spent a lot of time texting which in today's busy world is super helpful. During closing she helped make the process as smooth as possible and kept us on schedule. I highly recommend Harper to help you find a home in Sonoma County."

""We highly recommend Harper Nolan to be your Realtor. She turned what is typically a laborious and stressful home buying journey into a really positive and reassuring experience. At our first meeting she spent a great deal of time talking with us, asking the right questions, in order to understand who we were and get a solid feel for what we were looking for. Underneath her calm, warm, and friendly demeanor is a competent go-getter who took her job very seriously and immediately got to work--ultimately finding us a home that we love. Because the home was being sold "as-is" combined with a requested 21 day close, she recommended we get full reports so we would know exactly what we were buying into. Thankfully, because of her established and positive working relationships with local trades people, she was able to schedule appropriate inspections (full home, electrical, plumbing, structural) all within a week which was amazing. So we had full clarity on the condition of the home, which was very reassuring. We could not have asked for a better experience nor outcome--based on the reports she was able to further negotiate a price break for us even though the house was being sold as-is. We could not be happier, and feel very fortunate to have found Harper. And she continues to check on us, further welcoming us into our new home and neighborhood. We were looking for a sense of Community when looking at areas to move to, and through Harper we found it."
