Testimonials

Darcy was such an incredible agent to work with! She understood my needs well, gave great thoughts about how to prepare our house to sell and was excellent with all her communication. She sold our house right away and we got above asking. She was so fantastic- I would recommend her to everyone I know. She was so kind, helpful and knowledgeable- she walked me though every step of the process and calmed my anxiety. I'm so grateful I worked with her and she will be my agent for life.

Darcy was recommended to me by a friend and I knew from our first meeting that she would find me my future home. Being a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions and concerns, but Darcy is very knowledgeable and walked me through all the processes and made it very smooth. She even noticed important details that other brokers showing off the houses missed. I am very happy with my house! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to find you your new home.

Darcy Hardy helped us buy our new home and we're so thankful for her expertise in negotiating a great price in this highly competitive market. Darcy answered all our questions and made the entire experience stress free. We highly recommend her services if you're buying or selling a home.

Darcy was phenomenal! She worked tirelessly to find the perfect home for my son and I, in a great neighborhood where the value of the home has already increased! She is always friendly, personable, and highly knowledgeable about both the market, the local area, and the many nuances of real estate - including construction and building code! She was also able to get my previous home on the market and sold within a week, with a selling value far higher than I expected! I will definitely use her again, and highly recommend her!

When my husband and I were offered the chance to buy the house we'd been renting for ten years, we jumped at the chance. Completely clueless about the process, we reached out to family for names and advice. Through a recommended loan consultant, we were given Darcy Hardy's name. Darcy has endless knowledge and the patience of a saint. She answered all our questions, provided information whenever we needed it and always made sure we knew what was going on. All through the long process, she kept a cheerful attitude and never got impatient or tired of our "What's next?" emails. We got videos explaining different documents or processes and calls anytime we needed them. When we got the house, I know she was genuinely happy and excited for us. Genuine is a good word for her. Genuine and knowledgeable. If this is your first time buying a house or your tenth, know you will be in good hands with Darcy.

The first time I bought a house with Darcy Hardy we came from the relatively quiet market in Olympia to a much more competitive and high cost market here in the Seattle area. She confidently and capably guided us though the search and not only found a house that we loved, but negotiated and navigated us through a couple nasty surprises along the way. When we were ready to sell the house a few years later it was the start of Covid-19 and lock downs hit the day before our house went on the market. Undaunted, she found ways to get through all of the new red tape and had our house in contract within just over a week! In a time of chaos I was able to have confidence in her experience and hard work, and that meant the world to me. Not only is she great at what she does, but she is a singularly fabulous human being who truly takes the time to invest in and lift up the people around her. I recommend her to everyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in our area.

It's hard to explain how great Darcy Hardy and Therese Starcher with the Hardy Group have been to us.  They both worked hard and kept in close contact with us each step of the way.  They both are pleasant to work with, patient and prompt with all our questions.  We also got good advice how to prepare our house for sale.  

And of course the results were amazing - 7 offers 20% above list within a week of listing.  We never expected such a good result for our property...

I've worked with a number of real estate agents over the years.  Darcy Hardy and Therese Starcher will be the ones I return to.

As a first time home buyer, Darcy was an incredibly valuable resource in my home purchase. She was able to help answer and facilitate any questions I had throughout the entirety of the process, from helping select and negotiate a competitive mortgage (while I was midair traveling overseas for work no less), to providing suggestions and helpful recommendations for where to focus my attention through every stage of our new construction. Her experience in the industry helped properly set my expectations at every stage of the process, which made it as stress free and predictable as possible. She went above and beyond multiple times throughout the process, and even helped me when my car key died and my car wouldn't start! Working with Darcy, it is very evident she treats her work as more than just a job. She truly cares about the people that she works with.

Darcy was our realtor when we bought our house. It was our first time buying a house and she took the time to explain everything to us which was important because she ultimately let us have control over the process while providing us thorough and trustworthy information. All of her recommendations were great and she has good eyes. The market is rough right now but she kept us positive and on target. I would definitely recommend Darcy Hardy and the Hardy Group, especially if you are someone like me who didn't know real estate and is uncomfortable making big decisions until they have a better understanding, even if that means losing a few bids while you learn this crazy market.

We had a great experience both selling and buying a home with Darcy Hardy @ Hardy Group. Darcy Hardy and her team we available, knowledgeable and so supportive during a very difficult buying time (COVID 2020 and 2021). Darcy Hardy @ Hardy Group really had our best interests in mind!

What a great experience we had and Darcy knows her stuff! She did a wonderful job helping us. She was a referral and I am always a bit skeptical but do not be with Darcy. She is great and always there to help! What a gem and hopefully our kids will be able to use here when the time comes!

Darcy and The Hardy Group more than exceeded my expectations for my recent home purchase, as well as the past sale of my townhouse. Darcy is truly one of the most incredible people I have met in my life. She's remarkably talented -- she has an MBA, a degree in interior design, is incredibly intelligent -- I've never heard of an agent with this background and it sets her apart in every way. Her personality, skill in the field, patience, care and generosity is the best customer service I have ever encountered. I was VERY anxious about finding and buying a home in a difficult market, with my modest budget, and had a lot of fears about the process. Darcy calmly guided me in every step, was always reassuring and available, and I could completely count on her to be my advocate and craft my offers to get a house I completely love. I never felt pressured and she didn't let me compromise and buy a place that would really not have been right for me. I started the process thinking that I could definitely only afford a condo and she fought hard to get me a house, which I never thought I would be able to get, and I even kept below budget. Frankly, I'm confident with another agent I'd be in a condo now, rather than my very own 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house with a 2 car garage and amazing yard. At times it felt like she knew me better than I knew myself, and she was strongly educated on what would be a high quality place, looking into every aspect of the home in great detail to be absolutely sure it was a solid investment. It's truly not an exaggeration to say that I feel grateful everyday for what she has done for me -- her help changed my life. She's the poster woman for going the extra mile -- and I mean the extra thousand times -- really whatever it takes. Give her a call, go to coffee with her -- seriously, just meet her and see it for yourself. She's the real deal, and so are her associates - you won't be disappointed.

Darcy is very professional and thorough. She will help you with difficult transactions, as she helped me with mine. I needed to find a house with very specific features and characteristics, and she went above and beyond for me. This is my second transaction with her, and both transactions went as smoothly as real estate transactions could be. I highly recommend!

Darcy recently helped my wife and I buy our first home in Seattle...which was terrifying to think about when getting started. But Darcy made the whole process fun and as stress free as it could be! We couldn't be more thankful to have worked with Darcy - her expertise on the market, knowledge of the all the details in a home we should look for and her negotiation strategy took a huge burden off our shoulders. We even closed well under asking price on a competitive home in Fremont of all places! I highly recommend anyone to work with Darcy and her team.

Darcy Hardy is amazing. I was scared and skeptical at the beginning for searching for a home i can call my own. Darcy made the experience fun and found the perfect home for me. Darcy did not try to persuade me into a home i wasn't looking for or could afford. When we found the right home she was on it and went over and beyond. I believe 100 percent Darcy got the home for me and very quickly as well. i would recommend Darcy to anyone.
