⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Darcy was a delight to work with.

She was incredibly responsive and resourceful through the entire process. My fiancé and I were very open-minded (or rather very uncertain in a "we'll know what we like when we see it" kind of way), and Darcy had the patience and knowledge to take us through a large variety of neighborhoods and styles of houses. Most importantly she always had invaluable insights into how different house features and different locations could work (or not work) for our growing family and for resale in years to come. When we found "the one" she was relentless in moving the closing process along and getting us what we wanted from the seller (including so many things we wouldn't have thought to ask for). We will keep using Darcy for any future purchase or sales on the Eastside!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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 with 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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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.

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!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We met Darcy at an open house she was holding for her client.

She was so nice and polite and professional we called her to negotiate a deal on a condo purchase for our daughter. The whole event went flawlessly. We are going to purchase another condo for another family member. We will call on Darcy again!

Eric Blakemore

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Darcy will educate you about the entire home buying process in as little or as much depth as you want/need.

She prepares you for each next step and nothing was ever a surprise because we were well educated by Darcy. She is your utmost advocate when communicating with other agents, lenders and escrow companies. We had the pleasure of working with Darcy for our first home purchase and she made the process so easy. If you haven't contacted her yet, do so now! We will be sure to send all our friends her way!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It was an absolute privilege to have worked with Darcy to find our home.

She is a professional of the highest caliber who does everything in her power to affect the best results for her clients. It was ultimately her persistence and effort that got us our home well below the asking price in a strong seller’s market (more on that below). As first-time buyers, my wife and I were impressed by Darcy’s thoroughness in getting to know us and explaining the buying process in as much detail as we needed. Throughout the process, she did a great job of communicating with us and making sure that we were in the loop and ready for the next steps. The search for our home was a wonderful process. Darcy was on top of every new listing that fit our criteria and always made time for us. She’s sharp, intuitive about both people and houses, and really fun to hang out with! We always felt comfortable with her and her expertise. When it came time to make an offer, Darcy’s knowledge of the contracts was on full display. She fine-tuned each offer we wrote to give us the best shot at winning out against the multiple offers with which we were competing. Darcy was in constant communication with the listing agent in order to ensure that we had every competitive advantage and that our offer was as strong as it could be. Perhaps the best service Darcy provides is her professionalism in communication with the other side. In fact, we almost didn’t make an offer on the home we finally purchased. It wasn’t until her detective work revealed that the seller was under a strict time constraint to sell, which was ultimately more important that the selling price. Because of Darcy’s effort, we were able to make an offer that met both the seller’s schedule and our budget. Darcy is plugged into a fantastic network of local professionals from the best home inspectors and contractors to real estate lawyers and more: best of all, she connected us with a lender who was able to secure us a better deal on our mortgage, as well as increase our budget by almost $100k. When our offer almost fell apart at the last minute, Darcy worked tirelessly with our lender and her connections at the escrow company to make sure the deal went through – we were even able to close a day early as a result! Even after we closed, Darcy has remained in contact with us to make sure everything is going well. We wouldn’t dream of working with a different agent and are looking forward to listing with her when we’re ready to move on to our next house.

We worked with Therese for about seven months as we tried to find a home in the Seattle area.

Therese was so patient and helpful through this time. It was a tough market in the summer and had offers not accepted due to overbidding by others. Therese remained helpful and didn't give up on us! She is super quick to respond, honest, and very knowledgeable in the house buying process. We always trusted her input and felt like she genuinely cared about us. I'm thankful we were able to work with her. Her follow up was second to none and made this process so much easier. I would definitely work with Therese again and would recommend her for any of your house selling or buying needs.

Kelly Pfister from the Hardy Group was our real estate agent.

Being first time home buyers my wife and I had little knowledge of buying a home. Our thought process was to get approved, hire a realtor, find your home, sign a couple papers, slap some money on the table and DONE! Oh, I was sorely mistaken and could not have asked for a better guide to home buying then what is provided by Kelly! Thank you for who you are and everything that you do Kelly! We are happy to have found a top notch real estate agent representing a top notch company and will continue to use Kelly Pfister for all future real estate transactions.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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.

I had an excellent time selling my home with Darcy, and she is being VERY helpful helping me find a new one!

She was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. When Darcy staged my house it looked amazing!

Scrumbly

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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.

Darcy helped my family find the perfect home for us.

She was on top of every house that came on the market, and was available each and every time we needed her, whether it be to accompany us to a showing, or just to answer a question. I would highly recommend Darcy to anyone I knew shopping for a new home, especially a first time buyer like myself,and will without a doubt call her when we're ready to sell!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Highly likely to recommend

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!

Cameron Tucker

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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.

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!

Vanessa Brehm

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My wife and I were looking to buy our first house.

Given the tough Seattle housing market, we were pretty apprehensive. Darcy was recommended to us by friends. From our initial consultation through closing, she made the home buying process seamless! We appreciated Darcy's in-depth knowledge, as well as her accessibility. Even though she was working with several other clients, we always felt that we were her top priority. Darcy was able to quickly hone in on the qualities we found most important in a house. She provided exceptional guidance on everything from neighborhood selection to the inspection process. In addition, she is a shrewd negotiator. In a market where timing is everything, she helped us craft a highly competitive offer that was accepted before the offer review date. I highly recommend Darcy to buyers and sellers alike.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We bought our first home through the Hardy Group, and Darcy was fantastic!

She was extremely helpful in guiding us through the Seattle market and was transparent about the home-buying process. She was also very knowledgeable in pointing out things that we didn’t know to look for that could be potential problems in the future. Overall, it was a great experience, and we would definitely use her again and recommend her and her team to anyone looking for a home.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We have had our share of moves over the years, some great, some not so great.

So here we were, having bought a new home on the fly...unlisted and needing a total remodel. We had to sell our present home quickly! Thank God for Darcy! What could have been a totally stressful experience turned into a blessing! Darcy went right to work, helping us with so many details I could never list them all. The best part? She got us top dollar! Thank you Darcy for your commitment to making all things run smoothly and our transition to our new location seamless.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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 the process 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.

zuser20190915153959759

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Darcy is a fantastic realtor whom I recommend wholeheartedly.

From my first meeting with her, I could tell that she was smart, knowledgeable and concerned with my needs. She takes a very strategic approach to the buying and selling process, leveraging her own experience and her strong network of fellow realtors, mortgage professionals, inspectors, etc. In a very strong sellers' market, I felt that she gave me honest and accurate assessments of the properties we saw. As someone who is averse to the bidding wars, she worked with me to come up with ways to make my offer attractive and never encouraged me to spend above my limit. We successfully won the second property we bid on, and she worked closely with me through a very aggressive closing window. Post-closing, she continues to help get the home ready to move in. Through this process, I have learned the importance of having a realtor who will go the extra mile, engage the right resources for you, take a strong personal interest in closing the deal, and knows how to create a competitive advantage. Darcy is that realtor.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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. Especially in the middle of COVID and the recession. 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.
