Made it Easy
Kristy and the team at Hartley Realty made selling our house easy. Communication was great and regular so we always knew what was happening. We appreciated their enthusiasm and knowledge of the local market and industry trends. Happy to recommend Hartley Realty to anyone looking to sell their property.
My sister and I were quite nervous about selling our family home. It was a stressful context - we were acting as power of attorney for our mum, who was reluctantly moving to residential care with dementia. We had limited experience with real estates, and both of us were living quite far from the property. Id heard some good things about Hartley through a friend of a friend, but my sister was thinking we should go with the big names, well known local agents.
When Mum and I met Johan and Krsitie we had a really good feeling about them. I was impressed with their appraisal and plans, they were really lovely people, but my sister still had some doubts.
It took only about 3 weeks from meeting them to selling the home. The Hartley team listened to our concerns and were great communicators all the time. They provided expert knowledge when we had legal, financial and contract questions, they engaged the market really well. Being so far from where it was happening it was great to have a team who were strong at communicating and available to go the extra mile, even during their own major life stressors. Hartley were flexible and understanding about open days and showing people around the home, taking great care not to impact too much on mums routine and life, and we didn’t feel any pressure at all from them.
We couldn’t have been happier with the perfect balance of care and sensitivity, honest, genuine hard work, and expert knowledge. Im so glad I talked my sister into working with Kristie!

Smooth As Silk
Moving a 95 year old is fraught with drama at the best of times. Kristie, Johan and Christina were simply wonderful. We sold quickly and the whole process ran like clockwork. The personal service was excellent and they all deserve medals for the way they dealt with a very cantankerous 95 year old. Well done Hartley Realty.
My partner and I had a great experience with Hartley Reality. Johan spent a huge amount of time with us showing properties and explaining the area. We never felt push to make a rushed decision at any point. Both Kristie and Christina kept us updated with everything that was happening, always available and if not returned our emails or calls promptly. Overall we could not be happier with the service we were provided and we certainly use them again in the future.
Kristie was very friendly and professional.
Her knowledge was outstanding and I would highly recommend her.
Best In the Area by Far
Can't recommend these guys any more highly. After being listed with another agent and basically no movement, we decided to move to Hartley Realty and lifestyle properties. From the first phone call, to the sale at the end we felt confident with everything they did for our sale to go through. Great friendly service who went beyond to get the job done.

We found Johan to be very honest in his appraisal of the property; knowledgeable about best marketing methods and advice as to presentation of the property; an excellent negotiator and communicator.
Highly recommend Hartley Realty & Lifestyle Properties.
"I would strongly recommend Hartley Realty to anyone wishing to sell their home. Johan and Kristie really listened to our needs and took the time to find out what was unique and special about our property. Unlike other local agents they were able to offer a flexible and personalized service. Ultimately this was reflected in the price we achieved, which far surpassed values predicted by other leading agents in the area!!!!
Thank you Hartley Realty!

"I sold my property in Megalong Valley through Hartley Realty & Lifestyle Properties in September 2017, and couldn’t have been happier with the service and support provided by Johan and Kristie.
All meetings and correspondence with the team at Hartley Realty were professional and well organised. Inspections were arranged well in advance and at the most convenient times. The advertising and promotional material they generated was first class and I believed helped us achieve a sale price that was very acceptable.
I do not hesitate in recommending the professional Real Estate services of Hartley Realty and wish Kristie and Johan all the success in the future.
Honest and trustworthy.
"In January of 2017 my mother, husband and I decided that we would like to buy some acerage in Little Hartley with the idea of building a home together that would cater to all our needs and dreams.
We stumbled over a block that we instantly fell in love with and this is when we first met Johan Nilsson who was the real estate agent at this time. Upon our very first meeting with Johan we all knew that we could trust him and all felt at ease in dealing with him. Johan always went out of his way to help us and find out all the answers to our many questions. For those things Johan could not immediately answer he would directly follow up on and get back to us promptly without need for reminding. Johan's dealings with us as buyers had the right balance between friendliness and professionalism.
He is a local to the area and it easy to see that his love for the local area makes him passionate about his work and dealings with people.
Johan supported us with our purchase of the property from start to finish and we would warmly recommend his real estate services to anyone without hesitation.
Thanks Johan and we look forward to working again with your services some time in the future. Mandy and Henrik"
