About Me


I Make Real Estate Easier™

Whether you're moving up, moving on or moving out, I work hard to make the process easier for you.



Selling your home doesn’t have to be stressful

Relax and let me do the work for you! Every house has a story to tell. I believe it’s my job to use my years of marketing experience and expertise not only to tell your home’s story, but to spread the word. Whether it’s my professionally designed marketing materials, a Facebook post or a specialized custom listing on Craigslist doing the talking, we make sure you’re putting your best foot forward in every instance, every venue.

Think of John as an ad agency that is dedicated to marketing your home. I shoot professional photography, create one-of-a-kind marketing brochures, conduct property checks every week and communicate with you every step of the way. Some people might think I'm going above and beyond but I think it’s simply the right way to do business. It’s the way I do business.


Sell the sizzle, not the steak.

Want to see why I'm ranked by Trulia as one of the Top 1% Real Estate Agents in Omaha? Look further into My Marketing Strategy. You'll see why I can help you get top-market-value for your property.


The #1 question you should ask a real estate agent during an interview:

What is your strategy for marketing my property?

Whether you’re buying or selling, you need a realtor who is on top of the trends and has the technical chops to get the job done right. When you talk to a realtor about marketing your home, make sure they include a discussion about online marketing and their social strategy. If people aren’t reading the newspaper, where are they spending their time? Chances are, they are surfing the internet. Websites, Facebook, Craig’s List, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Houzz, LinkedIn…your realtor needs to have a strong online presence, understand the trends and know where to find a captive audience.

I have aggressively and successfully built my social networks and online presence because I understand the importance of the internet and recognize that it is no longer an optional resource. As I continue to expand my network, my clients stand to gain from the additional exposure their homes receive. Because of the tools I have online, I have the ability to reach a much larger audience than ever before. If a large number of people see your listing, the likelihood of receiving an offer goes up accordingly. Simply posting isn’t enough, you have to have a marketing strategy. I promise to not only identify the right venues, but create the right messaging for marketing your home effectively both on and off-line.

John is awesome! He went above & beyond his duty's as our realtor! He kept us well informed & was always easy to get a hold of, if we had questions or issues! After being in our old house for 20 years, he made buying a new house as easy as possible for us! We appreciate all the time & effort he put in for us! We would recommend him to anyone & everyone!

- Vicki Haugen

John was very helpful in selling our house, we had a very short amount of time to get it on the market. After 10 days on the market an offer came through that he knew would. Thanks John for all your hard work and molding your schedule around our busy lives to sell our house!!

- Patrick Micheels

If you’re looking for a house, John’s the guy. After months of struggling to find a home in the crazy Omaha market, he was the person finally able to help me get me what I wanted & needed. So incredibly thankful for the work he put in for me!

- Brooke B.

Team Hardy did an excellent job in negotiating a favorable contract answering any of my questions in a very timely manner. The whole staff was very welcoming and made the home buying experience almost effortless with electronic documents and prompt contact with the seller and mortgage company.

- Robert Johansen

John's pricing and marketing strategy was right on target. I had hundreds of people through the open houses and sold for more than any other agent told me I'd get.

- Karin Bisland

Everything John told me about his Exclusive Marketing Strategy was true. I checked his progress online and saw my house listed everywhere on the internet. Facebook, Twitter, Realtor, Trulia, Zillow, NPDodge, CBS, Deeb, and on, and on....I would recommend him if you want to sell your house fast.

- Scott Tappe

John Hardy served as our agent as we were purchasing a house in the Midtown area. He represented our interests in seller negotiations with honesty and dedication, and he was tireless and thorough, showing us many, many properties. He provided excellent financial advice and advocacy, and he also gave us great emotional support. He's a rare combination of loyal friendliness with us and fierce representation with others. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

- Eric O'Brien

We've completed several real estate deals with John and he continues to impress us. We've thrown every curve imaginable at him and he doesn't bat an eye. He always finds a way to get things done. That's why we keep coming back.

- Bill and Deb Kistler

I had the pleasure of working with John during the purchase of my first house. He made the entire process stress free and I truly felt that he had my best interest in mind. John had a great personality and sense of humor which made the house hunting process more enjoyable. Though he kept a low key demeanor with me, which decreased my stress level, John was very professional, assertive and detail oriented.

- Amy Collison

Thanks for all your hard work. You are a very thorough agent, which is a GOOD thing!

- Brad Dombrosky

John worked very hard to sell our house. He was straightforward and realistic. He had a great plan that covered all aspects of putting our house on the market. We cannot think of any reason why you would not want John Hardy for your realtor.

- KJ and Manni Belfrage

John was so helpful in guiding me through my first home sale. After reviewing the house & asking questions, he set forth everything needed to list my house which even had an offer the day after listing. And his website provided additional resources to help me along. Thanks John!

- Chad Bring

John is amazing! He is knowledgeable, accessible, patient, and really knows this market. John is friendly, professional, and always available to answer questions and make smart suggestions too. He helped us find the right home for our family and that is worth more than any rating can reflect.
