When we started thinking of possibly moving, Ed met with us in our home, listened to our reasons for wanting to move as well as our wishes for our next home, and offered sound advice--including possibly taking steps that would result in us NOT selling our home. It was clear that Ed was most concerned with helping us do what is best for our family, even if that meant not making the sale. From that point on, we knew Ed was our guy! Throughout the entire process, Ed was responsive, flexible, and knowledgeable. Ultimately, he helped us sell our home within 48 hours for more than our asking price. More importantly, though, Ed ensured that the sale and close went smoothly. Then as we toured prospective homes, Ed offered great insights that helped us to make the most informed decision possible. Ultimately, Ed helped us find our amazing new home that checks off every box from that "wish list" we discussed with him in that first face-to-face meeting. Finally, Ed was great with our young kids that we brought to tour homes--they were always excited to see him again! We couldn't recommend him more!

When choosing a realtor to navigate selling my house, one broker kept coming to mind. Ed Hardey. I’d been receiving consistent letters from he and his son Michael detailing the real estate market in my specific neighborhood for years. It let me know that they really had a pulse on real estate in my area. This gave me confidence I did not feel other realtors had. Ed personally sat down with me and was honest and straightforward from the beginning with realistic expectations. I can’t recommend Ed and Michael Hardey enough. I will be using them in the future for all my real estate adventures.

I highly recommend Ed (and Michael) to help you with your real estate needs, whether buying or selling. Ed's experience and expertise made the selling of our property a relatively easy process. He helped us price our property to be both competitive in the market while maximizing our potential earnings. We had our place under contract after the first weekend on the market, and it closed without a hitch!

Working with Ed and his son Michael, with the Integrity Real Estate Group proved to be beneficial for us. Ed really guided us through a tough period because our house was listed just at the close of the real estate lockdown. His profound real estate wisdom helped us to make difficult choices that resulted in our financial gain. Following his directions to prep the house worked toward a quick (2-day) sale.
Ed’s calming advise guided us through a complex real estate market; with skills being par excellence. We would recommend Ed and Michael to anyone looking for honest, upstanding real estate professionals.

Iam more than happy to recommend MR Ed Hardy as a qualified Real Estate Agent whom I have relied upon since I first bought my house in approximately 1999 since then MR Hardy has continuously kept in touch that allowed us to work with him again when we sold the house we first purchased through him. His expertise and diligence was much appreciated, he treated us with respect and although we had moved to another state,he kept his line of communication open. He informed us of everything that was taking place from renovations up until the final closing. My wife and I are so honored that Mr Hardy saw us through the purchasing of our home including to the very end after 20 years, that is dedication to customer service. Thank you for all you have done for us.

Ed Hardey (and son Mike) helped me with both selling my prior and buying my current home and I can't overstate the quality of his services. His knowledge of the market, interpersonal skills, insights and contacts for anything home related (mortgages, inspections, repairs) is superb. He definitely optimized my home sale price and home purchase price. In addition to unparalleled service he has a great demeanor and is a pleasure to work with. I can't recommend him highly enough! Thanks again Ed.

It was great working with Ed. He listened to what I was looking for and gave great advice and support. He and Michael were very available to go see home. Highly recommend them

Most any agent can handle the everyday home sale. My mother in law's home sale was anything but "everyday". A purchase of her home failed to materialize at almost the last moment. Ed's advice and wisdom on how to proceed was invaluable. He worked with the buyer to resolve their issues and keep the sale on track, even when they became difficult. Ed helped my mother in law get a good price for her home even in the off season, and hold the transaction together in a difficult situation. His guidance and advice was always good.

I would work with him again without hesitation. He knows the market, and he knows how to get things done. He even assisted us in seeing that her next purchase went well in a very tight time frame. I really don't think you could do any better than Ed Hardey for your real estate needs.

Ed Hardey with Integrity Real Estate recently sold a home for us. Ed did a fantastic job. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the neighborhood our home was located in, but the homes themselves. After meeting with Ed a few times, it became clear he was extremely knowledgeable, and experienced. He was very easy to work with, and did all the work. The entire process was painless as he was on top of every move. It made our lives much easier having Ed working for us. I wish other aspects of our lives went as smoothly.
During the sale, multiple projects needed completion in order to facilitate the sale. Ed had multiple professionals to recommend who were very reasonable and almost more importantly, timely. Having his resources available to use almost completely negated any delays in the sale.
Ed was completely honest and upfront in every respect. During this process Ed earned our trust, faith and confidence. He will be our Realtor from now on. I recommend he be yours as well.

We all cherish a relationship we can fully trust. Obviously with our friendships, and sometimes, even more so in our business relationships. And we all know how few those fully trusting relationships can number. For over twenty years now, Ed Hardey has given me that kind of relationship as a friend, and as a Real Estate Professional. He has guided me, and protected me through three of the largest financial transactions in my life thus far. He is genuine. He is the person you go to when you need a friend and a professional to have your best interest at heart when transacting such a major decision that is required when selling or buying your own home. Ed Hardey is the one you to go. Period.

I cant say enough great things about Ed and his team. This is the 2nd time using him as our real estate agent and both times were seamless. He makes the stress of selling a home nonexistent for the most part. His great personality, positivity, confidence and support make for an exceptional experience. Will always call him for real estate needs and highly recommend him.

Ed and Mike are both wonderful guys who will go the extra mile to get your house sold. It was truly a pleasure working with them and would highly recommend them.

Ed took the time to understand what kind of place I was looking for and the social setting I wanted. It took a month or two to find the right place, with each showing giving him a better understanding. But he found it. And when the sellers started second guessing themselves after the contract was signed, he had some creative ideas that kept the deal from falling apart. I was amazed.
Jun 24, 2019
We used Ed to sell our home recently. He made suggestions as to what we could do to improve the marketability of our property. With Ed’s guidance, after one weekend of showings, we had two above list price offerings. Ed was so kind and helpful throughout the process. We would most certainly use Ed with any future real estate deals.
Jun 23, 2019
We’ve worked with Ed and his team to sell a previous home, and to buy and sell our recent home. We’ve appreciated how his familiarity with market conditions, neighborhoods, and our wants and needs helped us find a wonderful house that we made a home and to get the best price when selling. Ed is so personally involved communicating status, explaining and monitoring home showings, inspections and keeping parties accountable... he helps make the buying and selling process as easy as possible. We wholeheartedly recommend Ed and his team!

We couldn't have asked for anything more. Ed did it all from beginning to end. He has great comunicative skills, and is fast and thorough. We weren't sure just how to do things and his suggestions turned out to be superb. We just simply couldn't have asked for more.

We had to sell our house from out-of-state, and so we were very concerned to find a broker who could handle the details in Aurora. We chose Ed & Mike, and were very happy -- they explained the process clearly & were able to take care of everything for us. And we benefitted greatly from Ed's experience and knowledge of the local market. I'd recommend Ed to anyone looking for a real-estate broker.

The team of Ed and Mike Hardey made our home sale and new-home purchase trouble free. Their experience reaped large benefits for us. If you follow their guidelines and advice, you will be very happy. We received 8 offers the first day on the market resulting in a sale price exceeding our asking price.
Great job!

Ed and Mike worked as transaction brokers for us. Ed went above and beyond to help make the transaction as easy as possible for both the seller and buyer. Ed also worked with the buyer's loan officer and helped to get an great loan put together. Great communication, quick and clear answers to all the questions from both buyer and seller. I will absolutely go back to Integrity for any real estate transactions in the future.

I took a lot of time researching and interviewing agents and Ed stands head and shoulders above the rest. Dealing with an older home in need of repair, Ed was the only one who didn't immediately recommend writing it off as a "fix-n-flip." He was experienced in dealing with estates and in working with contractors to finance major repairs (roof, furnace, etc.) out of the closing rather than taking out loans. He guided me through the details that would qualify the house for FHA/VA loans and recommended low-cost, high-impact improvements that would attract better offers. Working with his son, Michael, they put together a polished and professional listing that included a generous number of beautifully executed photos. Overcoming problems with old/inadequate comp data, Ed was able to set a listing price that attracted ten offers within five days, including five above list. Through every step of the process, Ed took care to explain each document with patience and attention to detail. As you'd expect, the closing was effortless. Thank you, Ed and Michael, for turning my problem into an opportunity.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Ed and his Mike on a loan closing and let me tell you, it was one of the smoothest most professional transactions I have had in quite some time! Integrity Real Estate Group ranks very highly in my book! If you choose them to represent you on a sale or purchase of real estate I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!
Mar 18, 2019
Ed kept me informed all the way, giving me sensible advice when needed but also asking how I wanted to proceed.
He took care of all sorts of details which were out of my depth.
I'm relieved I had Ed to steer me through the process to a successful conclusion!
