Get to Know Marcia Hardy

With more than 35 years in the real estate industry and as a trainer in my previous career, I provide real estate expertise with a counseling-like approach. I like my clients to understand all the ins and outs of buying or selling a home, from the details on the many real estate forms required to the negotiations of contracts. With knowledge comes confidence, and my clients make sound real estate investment choices based on the information I impart while we work together.

I specialize in single family properties in Issaquah, Redmond, Kirkland, Kenmore, and Woodinville, but have also worked with clients to purchase and sell property in downtown Seattle, Ravenna, W. Seattle, and Leschi neighborhoods, to name a few. I also bring a few unique areas of knowledge to the table; I have remodeled several properties and have the ability to look beyond the drywall and trim to the gem that may lie beneath. I also hold a special place in my heart for waterfront properties. I have lived on four lakes in our area, including Lake Sammamish, Pine Lake, Beaver Lake, and Ames Lake (where I have spent the last 18 years). Living on a lake in the Puget Northwest comes with both special rights and responsibilities, and I can guide you through what you need to know as a waterfront property owner and also what you need to know about selling a waterfront property.

Seattle Magazine has named me a 5 Star Agent for three years in a row. Past clients nominate agents based on their ‘Client Care Experience’ during the transaction, and I have been honored to have had the opportunity to provide this level of care to my clients.

Whether a move is six weeks or six years away, I look forward to building a consultative relationship with you so you always feel informed about your real estate investment. Please give me a call anytime and I look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.

Marcia was every bit the professional and expert that I expected. I interviewed many agents to sell our home and Marcia was the cream of the crop, she knows the game and how it’s played, she kept timelines going even when things looked poorly. In a nut-shell she’s a champ.

We presented Marcia with a very difficult task — we wanted to buy a house she had listed but it was a completely spur-of-the-moment decision, and we hadn’t even thought about putting our house on the market before seeing this particular listing. In order to make everything work out we needed to move extremely fast and not make any mis-steps, so after reviewing all of our options we asked Marcia if she would also be the listing agent for our house. Marcia was very clear with us during these discussions about her role in both transactions, and suggested several times that we might want to consider a different agent for our listing; but honestly we had such a great impression from our first conversation that we felt Marcia was the right broker for our house. Fast-forward just a month later and we certainly made the right decision: Marcia's pricing strategy was exactly on target and her research was both lightning-fast and comprehensive, qualities that continued throughout every step of this very fast process. Our house sold on the first day it was listed for the price we were hoping for, and Marcia expertly managed all aspects of both our purchase and sale transaction details including helping us navigate the inspection process, staying on top of the myriad daily details required to coordinate with escrow and our mortgage broker and just making sure that nothing fell through the cracks. Throughout the entire process Marcia's professionalism, good nature and obvious desire to ensure positive outcomes for everyone involved on both sides were clear. We're fairly certain we wouldn't have been able to make this work if Marcia wouldn't have been there to provide such great guidance at every step of the process, and we definitely completed the process with less angst than we might have with someone else who wasn't as skilled at anticipating all the twists and turns before they happened.

I would highly recommend Marcia Hardy to anyone buying or selling a home in the Seattle area. Marcia helped my husband and I buy our first home in November 2012 and she did an excellent job. Being new to the process, we needed someone with a lot of experience who knew the market and the area and could help us figure out what we were looking for. Marcia was perfect. She spent long hours with us looking at homes and discussing pros and cons. She also educated us about the house-buying process and always provided thorough answers to our many questions. Marcia was also very patient and flexible about scheduling, as we were living in Bellingham at the time and could only come down to the Seattle area occasionally. When it came time to negotiate with our sellers and their agent, Marcia did an excellent job of representing our interests and getting to a deal that everyone was happy with. She is someone with a lot of integrity and a lot of knowledge and we will miss hanging out with her now that our home purchase is complete!

Marcia was very helpful through the entire process. She was very knowledgeable about what to look for, especially in a older home. She was determined to find us a house we would love and was able to get our house for a great price. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Redmond, WA area.

Marcia is very knowledgeable about what is happening in the market place and works for very hard for her clients. I would recommend Maria to anyone that is buying or selling a house.

The summer of 2008 was a very difficult time to sell a home. Marcia's level-headed, optimistic approach and "practical-pricing" advice led us to 3 offers and a profitable sale. She is well-educated, pleasant, honest, aware, professional, and with a good sense of humor throughout what can be many days of tedious-fluff-the-pillows-make-the-bed-perfect-everyday experience.

Marcia was fantastic to work with. Her humor and no-nonsense attitude was much appreciated so we knew where we stood at all times in trying to sell a great house in a terrible economy. We moved to California and I would recommend Marcia to everyone needing to buy/sell a house.

Marcia has helped us buy and sell many homes. I can always count on her to be honest with me and an amazing negotiator for us on either side (since we have experience on both sides of the table with her). She was the one who encouraged us to buy our first home and has been our steadfast supporter and cheerleader our entire married life (over 17 years!). She was the reason for us successfully selling our 700K+ home before the market went south. She even helped us negotiate when we rented homes. Her knowledge of construction is invaluable as well, as she can see what items are truly fixable and what items we should walk away from. Anybody working with her will be delighted and served well beyond their expectations.

I have known Marcia Hardy since we were girls. I admire her as one with the upmost integrity. She is extremely trustworthy and has strong ethics. My family enlisted her help during a difficult time for us...the death of our father and the need to sell the family home to allow full-time care of our mother. Marcia was sensitive to our needs and took care of all the details of the sale. Our family will be forever grateful.
