Richard Huxham-Hardie

Born in Cape Town to British parents, Richard’s early childhood was mainly in Greyton before schooling in the UK and travelling between South Africa, the UK and his father’s home as a diplomat.

South Africa has always been his true home despite schooling and university in the North of England and then forging a career in real estate in Central London & Guernsey, Channel Islands.

‘I love my Mondays because I love my job’. Falling into the London real estate market in his early twenties, Richard worked for leading estate agent brands as well as a buying agent, his favourite role to date. It is only natural then at some point in his career he would go it alone and create Hardie Property, Richard’s core values are efficiency, customer service, communication and trust.

Passionate about Cape Town, Richard likes nothing more than to show off what the city has to offer to new buyers and tenants. Living the Cape Town life to the full, enjoying the mountains, ocean or heading out to the countryside, coupled with his expert real estate know how, Richard is the only real estate contact you need on your side.

Linda Gibson

Linda is a full status agent at Hardie Property, specialising in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Linda joined Hardie Property in August 2022, having come from Knight Frank Property, where she first started her career in the property world. Within one year Linda had achieved “Rookie Of The Year Award “for most houses sold as a newbie in 2019/20.

Within two years Linda had qualified as a Full Status agent and joined a partnership with Lyndsay Child specialising in Rondebosch, Rosebank and Little Mowbray, as a team they achieved the highest number of sales in 2021/22 within the company. Thereafter they took their partnership to Hardie Property to join their previous CEO of Knight Frank, Richard Hardie.

Linda had a long and successful career in the media advertising commercial world and a move to Cape Town gave Linda the opportunity to make a change to real estate sales. “My own experience of buying, renovating and selling homes gave me a keen insight into property matters and influenced my decision to get into the industry. I love exploring the “character” of different houses and gauging their potential and worth.

Some of the areas I represent has strong historic links with architecture reflecting the features of Victorian and Edwardian times. I love the elegant style to be found in the suburbs I represent – from charming upstairs/downstairs terraced homes to bigger properties with beautiful gardens and bigger space.

My previous experience of holding senior positions in the commercial portfolio in digital, print, radio and television prepared me well for the role I have now taken on and made me a firm believer in the “happy seller = happy buyer” principle – especially being a resident and owner in the Southern Suburbs I have been amazed at the many amenities Cape Town has to offer – from hiking on the mountain to taking the dogs for a run on the beach – and so chuffed that I found a place to live that makes it all so accessible.”

Hardie Property is not just about selling & renting property. It is about sharing our successes with others who are less fortunate.

We want to give our clients the opportunity to make a gift along with Hardie Property, to a cause close to their heart. A percentage of the sale or rental commission will be donated upon the successful transfer/signed lease of a property. It is at our client’s discretion if they wish to donate part of their sale/rental proceeds.

Hardie Property will be featuring charities that it has chosen to work with, on the website and in our newsletter.

Happy giving.

The Hope Exchange

Homelessness is rife and more often than not, it is misunderstood. In 2019 I met Geoff Burton. In 1981, Geoff Burton found a message within himself that he wanted to open a place for the homeless to rebuild broken lives, be respected, acknowledged and not be dismissed.
