In the past 12 months my wife and I have sold 2 houses with the expert help of Ed and Michael Hardey. The first house was sold in October of 2020 for my wife Kathy's mother, and earlier this month we closed on the sale of our house that we've lived in for 31 years. We are downsizing into a low maintenance new build which will enable us to spend more time on fun activities. Ed and Michael referred us to a moving and storage company that is ideal for our situation of having to move out of our current house a few months prior to the completion of the new house.

We were very pleased with the results and ease of the first sale, and Ed and Michael exceeded our expectations on the recent sale. Ed's expertise and experience in real estate are unsurpassed and he and Michael are great at smoothing out any and all rough spots along the way. Their guidance and advice has eliminated nearly all of stress we've experienced in past real estate transactions.

We would highly recommend Ed and Michael to handle your future real estate needs.

This is the third time that we have used Ed and all three times the experience was excellent. Ed is easy to contact and has always been totally honest with us. Our last sale was closing our Colorado home of 22 years while we were in Arizona. Everything when as planned and the house closed as scheduled. Would we use Ed again? Absolutely!

Ed helped us with the purchase of a home arranged as a private sale and also listed and sold our house. Because of the intricacies of the private sale, we were facing a tight timeline for the sale of our home and Ed made sure that we met all of the required deadlines while helping ensure that our interests were protected along the way. He advised us on what work was needed to ensure we got a good price for the home we sold and thoroughly explained any risks that came up thorough out the process. I highly recommend working with Ed if you are looking for a realtor.

Ed did a great job for my parents and I was also pleased with everything he did. He was on top of everything keeping my parents informed of the sale of their house. When we called him he either answered his phone or quickly returned the phone call. He was always pleasant and easy to work with. We thank him for everything and highly recommend him!

Seller - resident of 47 years
From the moment I called Ed Hardy at Integrity Real Estate Group, He was most helpful assessing my home for sale and assisting me with preliminary planning. After 47 years in the same home, he helped me to find support services that I needed, especially since I was out of state most of the time, such as a handyman, painter, furnace inspector and roofer. He even assisted in the transition from estate sale to home clearance to cleaning prior to listing. I believe the home was appraised accurately and sold quickly without any surprises.
As a widow with lots of special memories in this home, Ed helped make this sale seamless. Thank you Ed.

Long story short, you get what you pay for! Ed and his son Mike are experienced, professionals, they WILL make your buy/sale an easy and stress free experience!


Ed and his son are amazing! We originally met with Ed to sale our house. He was great he walked us through the process, showed us what our house was worth and why, he even left us a folder with everything we had talked about, making it easy to go over everything again after he left.

Shortly after we had met with Ed a family friend contacted us and asked to help with the sale of our house (he was also a Realtor) we decided to go with the family friend because he was obviously giving an amazing discount and he was a friend! BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER! We ended up losing our contract days before closing and I won't go into the details but it sucked. The biggest reason it was so bad is because we were moving out of the country! As you can imagine all of our plans were ruined making this a very STRESSFUL and costly mistake.

We called Ed nearly in tears and explained the situation. We got out of the contact with the friend (very difficult when it shouldn't have been). Ed, knowing our situation jumped into action. This was the week of Christmas so we thought we'd have to wait for things to move forward but nope Ed and his son had our house up the same day our contact ended with the other guy. We ended up getting into a new contract within a couple days!! (Dec 22nd) He worked with us that week everyday except Christmas day itself! He knew we had to get to our new home halfway across the world so he made things move very quickly! He really saved us from a horrible situation.

Once we were in contact Ed kept us updated but we didn't have to do anything which was day and night from the other guy! They got us closed and off to our home in Panama all within 30 days!

This was the most stressful time of our entire life and Ed made it so easy! I wish I'd had just went with our instinct in the first place. It would have saved us from the horror of dealing with someone far less experienced. If you get a chance to work with Ed and Mike, you should jump at it! I promise, from experience, there is no one better!

Thanks Ed and Mike!

Ed was recommended by a neighbor and he was wonderful. From our first discussion by phone, where he emphasized the importance of our feeling comfortable and confident in the realtor we picked, to the final days of closing, Ed was a guide who got us through selling my Dad’s home. Ed’s knowledge of house selling and our local area were invaluable in making decisions. His advice on how much to repair or upgrade helped us get above asking price for Dad’s home. His patience with us as we navigated helping my Dad with the house sale (and getting the family on the same wavelength) never wavered. His responsiveness was consistently excellent. We were never left hanging. We are forever grateful to Ed and his team for helping us sell Dad’s home. He made the process understandable and simpler. Thank you, Ed and team!

Ed is extremely knowledgeable about the current market. He gave us excellent advice on what to invest in cleaning up and improving and what to let go...and what to price the house at given the crazy market.

We got an offer beyond our expectations thanks to his experience.

I’d recommend him wholeheartedly!

Ed and team did a terrific job assisting us on the sale of an older home. He knew the market extremely well, allowing us to maximize the selling price. He assisted in coordinating the presentation of the home. He went above and beyond, even when we had a water leak at the house! The commission was well deserved. Thanks Ed!

Ed is an outstanding realtor amazingly easy to work with! His knowledge, excellent advice. He always made himself available, answered every question and helped me make informed decisions. He went beyond what one would expect and continue helping even after the house was sold. I highly recommend Integrity Real Estate Group.

My mother (84) had a rental property in Aurora Colorado that was being managed by another company. The tenants, of ten plus years moved out in August of 2020. The management company advised that there were a few things requiring attention before it could be re-rented. By the pictures they sent it was obvious that there was more than a few things requiring attention. it was also obvious that the rental management company did little more than collect rent over the years. My mother decided to sell the house. We contacted Ed Hardey, advising him of the current condition of the house and the desire to sell the property. After Ed toured the house, he was shocked with the condition, advising it was as bad as any he had seen. That said, he was not deterred from listing it. He detailed to us his plan for repairing/listing and selling the property, confident that we could complete the sell in a relatively short timeframe. He advised us what we must fix and what we should fix as well as the things we could ignore and sell as is. Ed would handle the contracting for all the repairs we agreed to and arranged to have the expenses funded out of the proceeds of the sell, requiring no upfront cash expenditures. Ed communicated with us regularly throughout the process, keeping us informed on the status of repairs. Once listed, he informed us about each offer, providing us with the pros and cons and his recommendation to accept or not. It was apparent that Ed had the interest of the client as his number one priority. It was a pleasure to work with Ed and I would use him in the future and would highly recommend his services to friends and family.

This is the 2nd home purchase I've worked with Ed on, and I simply cannot say enough good things about him. His professionalism, and "going the extra mile" to help his clients in top notch.

P.O.A. for my Mother
When the time came to sell my mother's townhouse, we contacted Ed Hardey because over the years, we have witnessed a very good track record of house sales in our neighborhood when Ed was the agent. After meeting with Ed, we were confident to move forward with him due to his detailed explanation of the sale process and the great knowledge he displayed to us regarding the entire real estate market. He also offered several great suggestions for preparing the house for sale. Once the house was listed, it quickly became obvious that Ed's proven system of pricing, listing, showing, and processing offers works; just as he told us it would. Within three days of showing, we had three offers, one of which was above asking price. We also appreciated Mike's work on the sale of the house. Both Ed and Mike were always very professional, and always available and happy to answer our numerous questions and make the whole process proceed very smoothly. We highly recommend Ed and Mike to anyone in need of Real Estate Services.

We are so grateful to Ed and Mike Hardey for their diligence and hard work on selling our mothers home. They kept us abreast on the progression of the sale and we never doubted that they were working constantly on making it an easy transition.
Needless to say we would highly recommend them.

We would highly recommend Ed Hardy!
He is extremely knowledgeable and we really appreciated his attention to detail.

We were out of town for most of the selling process and Ed was very helpful in scheduling any contractors as needed.

Our home sold for more than the asking price and we were thoroughly impressed by the entire process!!

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.
