Richard’s drive to execute on behalf of his clients combined with his ability to prioritize goals, places him in a league of his own.
Richard is a pleasure to deal with when searching for high end properties. He is hard-working, trustworthy and reliable which is key in such a cut-throat industry.
Richard Hardie provides an exemplary service to his clients. He works closely with his clients and contacts to achieve their goals with absolute professionalism, empathy and great expertise. He is always willing to assist and is a joy to work with.
Richard provides an exceptionally professional service spread over various property related fields. I worked with him at Garrington and have done so on numerous interlinked projects since. With his exacting standards and wealth of ecperience, this continues to be a pleasure.
My company has been working with Richard for several years now. Having previously worked as a buyer’s agent himself, Richard fully understands our need to source special properties for clients. He is used to dealing with highly confidential searches and understands the need for discretion and the sensitivities involved, especially at the higher end of the property market. He is always a pleasure to deal with and his relaxed professionalism is something which our clients appreciate.
Richard is a consummate professional property man. Knowledgeable about his market, exceptional with clients – both sellers and buyers – he keeps them informed as he deftly moves the transaction to a successful conclusion. He is energetic, creative and a great enthusiast, making him one of the nicest people to do business with.
Richards network is second to none! When I planned an elite property and design event in Cape Town remotely from the UK, Richard Hardie not only joined the panel of speakers as a property expert, but also opened his very extensive black book of buyers and investors to join the event.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Richard.
I worked with Richard at Livingroom (one of the worlds most professional, progressive and forward-thinking property brands). I would very highly recommend Richard on all commercial fronts. His key strengths are: 1) he is ridiculously capable, 2) extremely detailed in his approach to work, 3) has a brilliant understanding of corporate strategy, and 4) is genuinely charming. He has a full understanding and is capable of delivering strategy at a C-Suite level, and has a highly likeable personality to boot.
I’ve known Richard for many years, where he always provided me with the fastest and most professional advise on the real estate market in South Africa. Richard is a true professional, honest, friendly and customer service focused. Richard is my number 1 contact for my own clients that are looking to buy or rent in South Africa & Globally.
Richard is a delight to work with from the client’s point of view. Knowledgeable and persuasive and good at talking clients expectations down off the ceiling and purchasers expectations up off the floor. Additionally he is selective in bringing potential purchasers to view property, focusing on quality rather than quantity.
Richard was instrumental in our purchase of an investment property, renting it and also selling our main property during challenging economic times. Guided us through the process carefully and helped us understand a whole array of options. A very honest, up front and dedicated professional. Can’t recommend Richard enough.
Thank you Richard
Richard is an extraordinary estate agent. He has an innate understanding of what is needed. His professionalism, courtesy, extensive knowledge, honesty and charm are underpinned by a level of customer service and marketing skills that go above and beyond all expectations. He knows people and ensures all each clients’ wants and needs are catered for. He goes the extra mile and then some. He engenders trust and he’s a pleasure to do business with. I wholeheartedly recommended him.
Never has buying a property abroad been so easy.
As a UK resident wishing to buy a property in Cape Town I was introduced to Richard Huxham-Hardie. What a smooth and uncomplicated introduction that was with Richard off like a terrier to find me my dream. It only took a week!
From the moment I met Richard he understood exactly what I was looking for. A lock up and go property, not too small, not too big, a gentle step onto the Cape Town property market, which, if it all went wrong I could sell very easily. Richard is professional, friendly, instantly relaxes you and above all makes house hunting fun! Even my 18 year old daughter commented on what a good time we had with him and that he ticked all our boxes with the property he found us.
Always conscious of your price range and of your comfort zone and security, he thinks about where you want to be and what’s really right for you. I did not dream for one minute that I would end up in Green Point in a Penthouse with panoramic views of Cape Town – it had been Camps Bay all the way for me!
The sale was easy and uncomplicated, he introduced me to the lawyers, guided me through it all step by step and even helped me set my bank account up. He negotiated the rental on my property (fabulous) – he’s more than just an Estate Agent, I would say he is the Guru of selling property in Cape Town and around.
Richard’s approach to selling is non-invasive, he’s patient, he knows his stuff, he’s helpful, he knows Cape Town, the vibe, the food, the bargain, the market. He’s the main man and I can’t recommend him highly enough. I’m now looking forward to the next stage which is decorating my property and the “Guru” if I may call him that, has given me an introduction to a wonderful interior designer – see it’s easy – no brainer – Richard Huxham-Hardie – the One & Only choice in Cape Town.
Imagine thinking about buying a home in a new country and not knowing the first thing about how it works and everything that goes along with home ownership in South Africa. That is where my wife and I were. We knew nothing and were so nervous and overwhelmed. But then we came across Richard. He went out of his way to walk us through every portion of the home buying process, which is much different than in the United States. He laid everything out in a way that we could understand. He was a lifesaver. But it didn’t stop there, his referrals were all amazing. His professionalism, integrity and hard work were top notch. You knew he cared when we would get responses to questions early in the morning or late at night. And being a foreign buyer (many thousands of miles away) with a lot of questions, this made the difference. We can honestly say, that Richard saved us in this process. His constant communication and support were 1st rate.
I would highly recommend Richard to any foreign buyer looking to buy a home in Cape Town.
