We are proud to be a Keller Williams Realty team for many, MANY reasons – but in May one reason stands out in particular: RED Day!
Introduced in 2009, RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is Keller Williams Realty’s annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, associates celebrate Mo Anderson‘s birthday by spending the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities. RED Day is just another example of our commitment to each other and to the cities and towns where we live and work.
This year the Keller Williams Devon-Wayne office has partnered with The Arc of Chester County, a leading provider of services to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families, where we will helped around the campus doing any and all tasks that are asked.
When we arrived on at The Arc, our team of about 30 were split up and assigned m ...

SPRING IS (technically) HERE!
Although there is still winter snow on the ground, Spring is officially here! Soon birds will be chirping, flowers will bloom and the sun will shine later and later into the evening. With the approach of this beautiful season, it is important for sellers, and all home owners, to have their homes shimmering in the springtime sunshine. If you are planning to sell a house during this season, home staging is always necessary in the highly competitive spring market. It is important to make a great first (and lasting) impression on potential buyers the second they walk through the front door. After all, it is said that buyers know if a house is for them within the first few minutes of stepping inside. Luckily, at The Hardy Real Estate Group, ,our seller clients are offered a complimentary staging session prior to listing their home.

It’s official. Spring is here! Every day we are seeing more trees budding and flowers blooming – but what does this mean for the home selling market? It means that NOW is the time where home sellers are putting their houses on the market, in other words competition is high. When there is a busy season in the market, homes that lag behind their competitors with negative first impressions will sit on the market longer.
If you are thinking about listing your home during a highly competitive season – there are 3 important things to do before putting a “For Sale” sign in your yard.
First, be sure to pay attention to curb appeal, as the majority of begin their home search online, where photos are everything. After all, the photographs are the first thing that prospective buyers see of your home. Even when using professional photos, it is still important to make sure that your home’s exterior is in its best condition pom ...

There is nothing like a warm bowl of soup on a cold and windy snow day. Currently the entire North East is getting a taste of Stella, the March Nor’easter that is (hopefully) the last glimpse of winter ’16/’17. With most of the region either off, or working from home during this blizzard, we are all seeking the warmer temperatures – whether that be a cozy throw, hot coals in the fireplace or the warmth (and aroma) of a bowl of soup.
Liz Hardy shared with us the most perfect soup for a day like today: Winter Vegetable Soup

Last Friday, February 10th our team dropped off 250 donation bags to every doorstep on select streets in Havertown to collect food for the TLC (Temple Lutheran Church) Food Pantry.
The TLC Food Pantry‘s mission is to assist the more than 1,700 people in the community living below the poverty level. They operate on the 4th Saturday of every month, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Their clients are greeted by volunteers before they enter the church, where they are able to socialize with other patrons and volunteers, and then “shop” from the pantry.
In order to stock the shelves they rely on donations and the community as an ongoing project. One of our awesome agents, Liz Burns, is friends with the woman who began this wonderful charity. Their friendship lead to our team’s volunteer work.
The next Friday, February 17th our team headed back to Havertown to collect the donation bags. We filled two of our vehicles (bm ...
