Broker / REALTOR®
Son of an Air Force Officer who has lived in several different countries and many of the states in the US. Skilled in Negotiating, Consulting and Facilitating transactions. Owner of several different businesses including food industry, painting and remodeling as well Owner/Broker/Bic of HARDY REALTY.
I am an expert in the Triangle area with over 30 years experience of RE. I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. I offer "monetary credit" to the members of our Armed Forces, Teachers as well as Police wanting to purchase or sell a property. Here are more things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"(5 STARS) I know Rick through his community service work with the Durham County Board of Elections. He is an enthusiastic, loyal, hard-working, and passionate person, and you will never have a bad day when he is around. I am grateful for his continued commitment and his unrelenting kindness.""

"(5 STARS) Rick handled a very sticky and tricky home buying situation for me a few years back. I was SO relieved to have his experience and ability to deal positively with all different types of agencies and personalities. He took care of the process from beginning to end professionally and with a smile on his face! Thank you, Rick!""

"(5 STARS) I first met Rick as a coach for my son's soccer team many years ago. My son and I both liked Rick's enthusiasm...he is (and was) the perfect blend of kindness and firmness. That's why I knew when I began to look for a house that Rick would be the perfect advocate. Not only did he have great enthusiasm throughout the process, but he had a lot of patience with mine and my partner's requests (there were many). We also benefitted directly from Rick's vast experience in the real estate business. He knows a great deal about the minutiae of purchasing a home and about protecting the interests of a client. I'd gladly recommend him to anyone, not only as a real estate agent, but as a dependable friend.""

"I'll be honest. When my wife and I (and my sister, oddly enough) first met Rick Hardy at an open house, we weren't looking to buy. Well, not seriously anyway. We had an idea of where we wanted to move, a timeframe in mind, and a local snooty realtor we planned on using. As we got closer to a serious house hunt, it became apparent that the hoity toity realtor wasn't a good fit for us. So, we called Rick. Rick graciously took us out to a few different homes of interest. The first time, he threw himself belly down in the mud while it was snowing to take a look at the foundation of the home. I thought to myself, "Who is this guy?" Our search progressed and a few things became obvious: 1. Rick knows his stuff inside out when it comes to both real estate and home remodeling. 2. Old houses have character but they also have their own issues. A new home is what we're after. After coming to these realizations, we quickly found a wonderful local builder to make our dreams realty. With Rick's "
