Review: "Gary is the real estate agent you want in your corner! We have sold three homes and purchased four over time and we never imagined we would ever think a real estate agent is worth their commission - but Gary definitely is! Gary helped us with the sale of our home, and the purchase of another. For the sale of our house, Gary got us far more than the other agents even suggested as the original list price. He essentially paid for himself, and even if he hadn't, he is still worth every cent. Right from the beginning Gary made sure that every detail was taken care of. Rather than taking the property pictures himself, he had a professional photographer handle the job. Compare some of Gary's listings with other real estate agents and you'll see what a difference that makes. The house we sold was in a small town outside of Lincoln where the market was not as hot as it was in Lincoln. One real estate agent told us to be prepared to have the house listed for at least 89 days, as that was the average number of days on the market for our area. Gary's contract was only for 90 days, and we had an accepted offer in less than half that time. We are certain that this was because of the extra work Gary put in. He held open houses multiple times a week! One real estate agent told us they would have an open house the first two weekends and then once a month after that. When asked why not more, we were told that 'having too many makes the house go stale and the interest will be lost'. We asked Gary about that comment and his advice was that 'new people are coming on the market every day and it only takes one person being able to see the property to get an offer on your house'. In addition to having more open houses than any other real estate agent offers, Gary utilized a wide array of techniques to keep the property at the forefront and the interest alive; for both the general public and with other agents, who may show the house to their clients. Once the offer was accepted in both the buying and selling process, Gary was there every step of the way, watching out for our best interests and providing valuable guidance. During the entire process he made us feel as if we were his only clients, answering questions promptly, showing us multiple homes, and staying on top of all the details. Gary knows his stuff and is happy to enlighten you along the way. Thank goodness he does too because it saved us from placing a bid on a home that could have cost us a lot in the way of repairs. We highly recommend Gary for any real estate agent needs. "

Review: "Gary Hardt was AMAZING!! This was our third attempt in trying to sell our home. The first time it sat on the market for 4 or 5 months and mind you it was a beautiful home listed for less than I owed but we were forced to take it off the market and rent. I was so disappointed with that realtor. He put very little effort maybe doing 3 open houses in that entire time and it was so discouraging that we rented the home for years to avoid dealing with the stress again. After living in Colorado for years we again decided we needed to revisit selling the home. We interviewed realtors this time and we thought we found the perfect one as she was direct, a little pushy, and very confident she could sell in less then 10 days and we thought that is what we needed this time. Again, even in a hot market the house set without an offer for over 45 days leaving us disappointed. She did three open houses in that time and we thought it was great compared to our previous realtor but she was slow in her updates: price changes took days, she would advertise open houses late in the week, never updated Zillow, and she provided very little updates something we were upfront about since we lived so far away. We always felt we didn't know what was going on and when we contacted her she was still direct but also very rude and I cringed every time my husband asked me to contact her. We were on the edge of taking it off the market again and renting when I started doing some research and ran into all of Gary's reviews. I called him and he was so professional and friendly and I immediately felt comfortable. Switching Realtors and relisting was fast. He made sure the house was pristine again, new pictures, better selling description, and websites all updated. He immediately started sending us his open house requests in which he did a minimum of 3 a week. I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable we felt and how much stress he took off our shoulders. The house sold in less than 2 weeks and I'm telling you this is where Gary shines. We never once had to travel back to Nebraska. He was there for every inspection and walk through. He took care of all the maintenance we agreed to correct after inspections. He was there every step of the way keeping us in track, not only making sure our paperwork was in order but that we understood what we were signing. He made us feel like his top priority. I don't know how he gets so much done in a day but all his work is so greatly appreciated. I would DEFINITELY recommend Gary in all future real estate needs. Thank you soo much Gary!!! "

Review: "Gary helped me buy my new home as well as sell one that I had been in for many years. He was very helpful through the entire process. Whenever there was a house I wanted to see, he was very quick to accommodate my schedule and make appointments. My house was on the market for a bit, and he did open houses weekly. Gary has good communication skills and I would highly recommend him."

Review: "Gary's professionalism and knowledge of the Lincoln real estate market enhanced our home buying experience. His willingness to work with our schedule and answer questions at any time of the day (or night) was a grat help while trying to negotiate a home purchase while living out of town. He is a genuine, honest person that got to know us and what we were looking for in a home. If you want a realtor that works for you and knows how to communicate, Gary is your guy! I will recommend him to everyone I know buying/selling real estate in Lincoln. Thanks Gary!!"

Review: "From the minute we connected with Gary, we always felt like he was working hard to make both our sale and purchase work in the best way possible for us. Gary's expertise was great throughout the entire process. He was able to sell our house for more than we expected. He helped us find a house we really like as well. But where his work was most valuable was when the inspection on that house revealed major problems. Had his inspector not found the problems, we could have been in major trouble. Gary was then able to find us a house we liked even better the very next day. When the unexpected came up, he was always there to look out for our best interest. We're in our new house now, thankful that Gary was our realtor. We highly recommend Gary Hardt."

Review: "I hired Gary Hardt to list my home for sale. He was understanding of my situation to sell quickly, and worked with me on my timeline. I received an offer for the full asking price within 24 hours of listing my home. While this may not be typical of every listing, I believe Gary's professional ad photos, ability to list my home at the right price, and his marketing was what sold my home so quickly. I moved out of state within a week of getting the offer, and Gary handled everything in my absence, including closing. He kept me informed of what was going on, and answered all of my quiestions accurately. I would highly recommend Gary Hardt as a listing agent, or if you're looking for a home to purchase. He is top notch!"

Review: "Gary was extremely helpful and hands down the reason why our home buying process went by so smoothly. My wife and I were looking for our first home and he made the process extremely easy. His communication skills are superb, he was very patient with us and explained to us every step of the process. His experiences is evident and used it to warn us of possible issues during the home buying process, potential problems with house systems in the future and what to be on the lookout for when looking at a house. He was able to accommodate our busy schedules masterfully and always did so with a smile on his face. When I have to buy another property in the future I will use Gary as my real estate agent. I highly recommend Gary."

Review: "Gary was an amazing realtor to work with! We were so lucky to have him as our agent for our first home. Our seller wasn't working with an agent so Gary really took on both roles ensuring that we were taken care of as the buyers. He was available to answer our questions and really went above and beyond to make sure the process was easy and in our best interest. If you're looking for an agent, Gary will go above and beyond for you!"

I really appreciate the fact that Gary was very transparent and didn't always tell us what we wanted to hear - that's refreshing. Gary leveraged his experience and expertise to educate us instead of forcing our decision. Ultimately Gary was able to deliver exactly what he said he would!"

Review: "Mr. Hardt recently listed and sold a home for my family. He was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and thoughtful during the entire process. My father, who is 88 years old, was unable to meet with Mr. Hardt outside of the retirement community he had moved to so, Mr. Hardt met my father several times at the community which was so very helpful. Mr. Hardt will go the extra mile for you, with a smile. He is on time and accomplishes what he says he will. We couldn't have accomplished selling the home without his expertise and friendly can-do attitude!"

Review: "We first met Gary because he had our neighbors house listed. Both my husband and I felt very comfortable with him from the beginning. We listed our home with Gary and it sold in less than 30 days, which enabled us to purchase our new home. Gary was always available to answer any questions that arose, we felt he went above and beyond to market our property. I would gladly refer him to anyone I know that is interested in buying or selling a property. He is a wonderful person to get to know, and we both consider him a friend. We wish him luck in the future, he certainly goes the extra mile for all his clients."

Review: "Let's be frank. There really are very few people providing any kind of service that I would go out of my way to recommend to others. That said - GARY HARDT WAS GREAT! He came recommended by a friend who had used his services before. At the time we were strongly considering selling our home on our own and had Gary and a few other realtors come over to do a home valuation for us. Needless to say, my wife and I have dealt with Lincoln realtors in the past and were either disappointed with their professionalism or felt like they weren't listening to our basic requests. Regardless, we were so impressed with Gary's analysis, professionalism, and valuation of our home that my wife and I both decided before he left that we wanted him to sell our house. Gary was very aggressive with open houses and assured us that selling our home was not about staging, baking cookies or taking down our personal pictures as it was about exposure. Finding the right person was key. He was right! Our home sold in less than three weeks. We were VERY happy with the final sale price. It was far more than we would have asked if we sold our home ourselves and considerably higher than what the other realtors we contacted would have started at. Our friend who recommended Gary had a similar experience. To put it into perspective, the final sale price was enough to cover Gary's commission and most of our closing costs (when compared to what we would have asked for the home if we sold it ourselves or through another realtor). You could say his service cost us nothing! Would we go through Gary again? Definitely! If you are considering selling your home, have Gary Hardt come by for a valuation and chat with him before listing it yourself. You won't regret it!"

Review: "I had a different real estate agent prior to Gary and lost a townhouse I had made an ofer on because my first agent didn't do his job correctly. Then I went to an open house that Gary was having and started visiting with Gary. I knew right then and there that Gary was the agent I definitely needed to have. He is very thorough, knows the real estate business inside and out, answered my questions and always was there for me. I couldn't ask for a better person to help me find the house that was just right for me. I would highly recommend Gary for any of your real estate needs. He is the BEST!!!"

Review: "After working with another realtor for many months and getting absolutely no where, I responded to a "cold call" letter that Gary had sent out while we were on vacation. Our home had been unlisted for about 10 days while I interviewed several other realtors that I was not impressed with. I was able to develop a rapport with Gary almost immediately -- he's just that kind of person with whom you immediately believe and feel trustworthy. Gary worked extremely hard to sell our home holding three open houses weekly. He always gave us immediate feedback after each open house which is something we had not received before. I think Gary works for an excellent real estate company that markets their homes extremely well. My only regret is that I didn't list with him sooner. I feel that he would have been able to sell our home within "weeks" of listing during the early spring of 2014 when homes were selling very quickly. We had such faith in Gary that we recommended him to our son. Gary was able to sell their home quickly and for a far better price than they had hoped. I strongly recommend Gary without an ounce of hesitation to anyone who is thinking of selling their home or buying a different home. He adapts to his client's needs and works really hard to sell a home."

He was willing to go over the top and meet us at odd times that fit our schedules and view houses multiple times so that my husband and I could both see the homes. Moving from another state and having my husband and I not in the same area during the search time was difficult but Gary was amazing and made this purchase a great experience."

I would highly recommend him to handle your properties or the property that you want to purchase. Every time I called or emailed him he was quick to reply with sound judgment. Gary was dedicated to seeing us through. On the evening that we made our offer, he went out directly and before we had finished dinner he called to inform us that the seller had countered. We excepted the counter and he finished the paper with us. Gary smoothed our nerves and made things happen. Gary was fun to talk to as well. He gives his company a good name..."
