We are proud to have a state of the art closing department, a full time marketing coordinator, a technology expert to handle technical matters and Internet marketing, as well as an experienced administrative staff.

Harding's trained professionals are well equipped to handle all your real estate needs. Many of our agents are brokers in their own right and several have over 20 years experience selling property. Our staff has the knowledge and expertise that it takes to get property "SOLD". Due to our excellent support staff, our brokers have more time to spend working with you the client whether buying or selling property. Due to the ever-changing nature of our business our brokers attend regular classes and seminars to obtain the latest knowledge so they can better serve you.

Our full time closing officer coordinates the many transaction details between contract date and closing. The expertise in working with attorneys, lenders, title companies, surveyors and home inspectors assures your transaction will result in a smooth closing.

Marketing is handled by a full time advertising professional with an advertising budget well in excess of $100,000 annually. We believe our advertising program is second to none.
