Most genuine agency out!
In the last year, Hartley Realty has successfully sold two properties with acreage on my behalf. I have been very impressed by Kristie and her team and their genuine commitment to their clients.
They have always conducted themselves in a very professional manner but I also found them to be very friendly, obliging and approachable.
It can be a daunting prospect to sell a home where you have been happy for many years and where each room is filled with memories and memorabilia! It can also be difficult to downsize and to leave a neighbourhood and local community that you have become attached to.
However, I am very grateful for the sensitive, caring and compassionate way in which Kristie handled all the appointments, inspections and negotiations on my behalf.
I am now happily settled in a retirement complex where I am enjoying getting to know my ‘new’ local community, making new friends and also new memories. My family and I are sincerely grateful to Kristie and to her team.

Sold like that!
We just wanted to thank you guys again for making the
whole process of selling a breeze, Leanne and I had not ever sold
before, so we were really nervous. But after our meeting the butterfly’s
had gone and the rest is history, our land sold the day it was listed
and for more than we expected.

Professionalism at its finest

We have no hesitation in recommending Hartley Realty to family and friends.

Kristie is a delight to deal with, very friendly, punctual and helpful.
Kristie and her team really helped me out, this was my first property sale, and Kristie talked me through the whole process. Answered all my questions and picked up the phone every time I called.
And to top it off, sold the land in one day, getting more than I expected.
Very happy, would highly recommend them for anyone thinking of selling/buying in the area.

A rare and genuine agent
We recently used Kristie from Hartley Realty to sell our acreage property in Little Hartley.
Kristie’s approach is so genuine, warm and professional and I felt so at ease to trust her with the sale of this property. Kristie and her team went out of their way to make this sale as easy and stress free as possible, Kristie was always so approachable and willing to provide advice and guidance every step of the way.
The level of service we received went above and beyond, I would not hesitate to recommend Kristie and her team to anybody buying and selling in the local area.
- Tanya Legender
Great experience and above expectations work.
Just bought a property in Lithgow at the end of last year. Kristie was very professional to deal with. She was very available and helpful to me as a purchaser. She was helpful to both parties involved and allowed the deal to happen in a fair manner. She was also helpful in providing rental options to me for this property, even after the sale. She did a much better work than the agent in town and I would definitely use her and her team again for buying or selling properties in the region.

Excellent Service Experience
The team at Hartley Real Estate provide an exceptional marketing campaign which provides results.
They understand the market very well and give sound advise, we would not hesitate in using them again.

Achieved a sale close to what we were looking for in pretty tough market conditions ( Covid/bushfires/ industry downturn). Well done!
- Matt Moore
Excellent Knowledge, Service, Approach, Delivery, Completion.
The entire Team of Hartley Real Estate are simply the best.
They researched everything about our property prior to it going on the market, from not just recent sales within the district, but the entire topography of the property, this included the type of trees, the type of native wildlife, the local schools, bus routes, nearby smaller hamlets where you could simply just get a great coffee or milk and fresh bread on a Sunday morning.
This background work offered us the right opportunity to sell our property and it was marketed and sold within only a few weeks.
Thank you to the entire team job very well done.
- George And Adriana
Exceeded our expectations
Kristie offered an efficient, professional and friendly service. She gave us excellent advice and guidance on the sale of our home and worked hard to deliver a pleasing outcome. We are so grateful, and would highly recommend Kristie and the team at Hartley Realty for anyone looking for an efficient business, that operates with integrity and delivers fantastic results.

Absolutely Number One Realtor Choice!
Kristie and Johan are without doubt the most brilliant agents, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy.
I bought my house through them with seamless ease, and sold it through them with great success 2 yrs later.
Kristie sold my house for a great price, and proved that Covid19 restrictions were no barrier to meeting our goals in terms of time and price.
Most importantly, it was Kristie's commitment to helping me achieve the sale whilst I moved interstate that is truly priceless.
Without her incredible expertise and resources, this move during the sale process would not have been possible.
Hartley Realty is the Only agent to call if you also want super professional market experts to handle your real eatate affairs.
A Huge thankyou to Kristie, Johan and Christina for your brilliance, commitment and unfailing support and kindness!
From the start of our venture Kristie was very friendly, communicative, knowledgeable and did everything she could to make us feel comfortable and at ease. We achieved a terrific price for our property and I believe the purchaser was also happy with the result. We would highly recommend Kristie and her team for an honest appraisal and consistent communication in all aspects of our sale experience.
- Julie And Vincent Turnbull
Kristie goes well and truly above and beyond to market and sell our properties, I thoroughly recommend Hartley Realty and life style properties to sell your property.
- Catherine Ledger
Very Professional Service
I can highly recommend Kristie as an agent, she has such a vast range of knowledge when it comes to the rural and residential property market in our area and surrounding areas.
I have dealt with Kristie since she has opened her real estate business in Little Hartley and would thoroughly recommend her as she is always available to talk to.
- Catherine Ledger
Hard Working Agent
I would recommend Kristie to anyone wanting to sell their property. I found Kristie hard working, professional, enthusiastic, kind and caring and she got me a higher than expected selling price.
An Excellent Agent
Kristie was enthusiastic and positive about our property and gave us a realistic estimate of the selling price, which was much higher than two other local real estate agents had given us. There was no pressure from Kristie to accept a lower price and so Kristie was able to achieve a selling price much higher than other agents had tried to convince us to expect. We were very happy with what she was able to achieve for us. Even during this period of Covid restrictions we were able eventually to achieve a satisfactory selling price.
Kristie is very easy to work with and we found we could trust her recommendations and advice. We would be pleased to recommend her to any one wanting to sell a property.
- Sue Collins
Best Client service

Helpful & Creative
We have found everyone at Hartley Realty very helpful and creative. Whenever we had a question, Kristie and Johan were able to answer it quickly and courteously. It also appeared to us that you always had the best interests of your client in mind.
- Mr & Mrs Avery
We recently sold our property with Hartley Realty during the covid-19 shutdown. The result was as they had told us back in March 2020 despite the disruptions, and we were extremely happy with the price. Over the campaign they spent many many hours with buyers on our property and probably as many on the phone with me. I am a licensed estate agent and was impressed with the interest they cultivated and how they managed our marketplace and final sale.
- M. T.
First Class service!
We sold our house with ease thanks to Kristie. From start to finish we were given clear and concise information. We knew exactly what to expect from our agent and she nailed it!
Kristie’s professionalism was second to none.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you.
- Kelly & Brandon Woolsey
We have been very impressed with Hartley Realty. They sold our house in Lithgow in only a few months after changing to them from another agent. The team have a unique approach both with their cozy office in a great Highway location, to their friendliness and professionalism. They are highly recommended.
Down to earth and very accommodating
Working with Kristie in the purchase of our new property was enjoyable throughout. I really appreciated her making time for a number of appointments at the site, never rushing me and always sharing objectively about the property. We Kristie is an exceptional agent (we've come across many in our search!)
Selling for the first time, was made incredibly easy
As part of the Hartley Realty team, Christina was amazing with helping my parents and I sell our property. Circumstances were a little difficult for us, as we had such an attachment to the home, and my parents had relocated overseas, but Christina made sure to stay in touch every step of the way and guide us through the process which made it seamless and much easier than we could have ever hoped for. The kindness and knowledge that the whole team hold is absolutely invaluable, and having them work with us to sell our property made sure that at the end of the day, we got the best deal we could have hoped for.
- Allie on behalf of Neil & Liwayway
Selling for the first time, was made incredibly easy
Kristie was absolutely indispensable throughout the whole process. Whatever questions or concerns we had, were met with a friendly ear to listen and in-depth knowledge to settle our nerves. Kristie and the team at Hartley Realty were in touch every step of the way, from first contact to settlement day. I can't speak highly enough of Kristie and the team, they made the whole process incredibly easy and we couldn't have asked for more.
- Allie on behalf of Neil And Liwayway Deignan
A small friendly real estate team; knowledgeable about buying and selling properties in the Hartley & Lithgow area and helpful in providing advice relating to local trades and services on the West side of the Blue Mountains. The real estate office is conveniently located on the side of the Great Western Highway in Hartley. The sales team is obliging and helpful.
Kristie and her team were all super helpful throughout the entire process.
Couldn't be Happier
We purchased our home with Kristy and there was nothing she wouldn’t do for us.
Highly recommend Hartley reality
- Renae & Dave
I would like to thank all involved at Hartley Reality and Lifestyle for the effort put in to securing the purchase of my property.Being kept informed of developments when there were problems as well as solving them was appreciated. Local knowledge and involvement in the community is always the foundation for a successful business and I hope to maintain a relationship with yours into the future . Thanks again.
- David Raine
Couldn't be Happier
Swapped agents after 6mths and Kristy sold our property in the first 3 weeks.
They go over and beyond and I feel like they work harder for their sales than the bigger franchises.
- Renae & Dave
One of the most positive experiences, we highly recommend this realtor!
We recently purchased our first house with Kristie and the team at Hartley Realty.
Without a doubt, this has been one of the most pleasant experiences we’ve had.
Hartley Realty helped make this process extremely easy, which is no mean feat when you consider how demanding we were!
Kristie and her staff accommodated every single one of our requests (which probably became quite onerous!) with a smile, and we always felt like our business was important.
We’ve had experience with some big realtors and have not been completely satisfied with their service. The same cannot be said of Hartley Realty, and we cannot recommend them enough.
- Jonathon & Erin
Dealing with Kristie & Johan took all of the stress out of selling my property, found them both helpful & professional would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
Thank you !
- Joel G.
Thank you Kristie!
Kristie was very quick to provide information and help during the buying process. I highly recommend working with Kristie and the Hartley Realty team.
West Side of the Mountains
Kristie is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about the local area and its service/facilities.
If we ever buy a house again we would like to go through Kristie.
Kristie was very friendly, helpful every step of the way buying our first home and would recommend her highly.
Sold our Family home at Wallerawang
Hartley Realty delivered excellent personal and professional marketing of our 4 bedroom home in Wallerawang. They read the market value correctly which was far higher than other local agents. They went above and beyond in being available for our questions during and after hours. Everything was explained so we could understand the steps along the way and the sale went through in 2 weeks from offer to settlement. I highly recommend this dedicated young couple, we were totally happy with the outcome.
- Cathy & Martin
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!
- Keelin & Renny
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.
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.
Kristie was very friendly and professional.
Her knowledge was outstanding and I would highly recommend her.
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.
- Cathy & Steve
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!
Justin and Michael"
- Justin and Michael
"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"
