About Harken









A different kind of real estate brokerage.

The name Harken comes from the definition:
verb "to listen to"

I wanted to create a brokerage that is not sales focused, but rather helps with whatever customers need while going through the process. Buying or selling a home is a big decision. Moving can be difficult. My goal is to take away some of that stress. Instead of "selling" homes as a j-o-b, the basic idea behind my brokerage is: happy clients will refer others to Harken Realty.
By using a systematic checklist for each property, I show you how a few hours of painting your kitchen, mowing your lawn, or swapping a light fixture can gain you instant equity.
You can be assured that the friends and family you send to Harken will be taken care of, too. Since I don't have a huge office with fancy fixtures to pay for, I can dedicate more time to every client I work with.
As an added bonus: My knowledge of home repair and years of sweat equity experience can be put to use to brainstorm ways to make a listed home stand out from the crowd, or a newly purchased gem become a polished jewel.

I've relied on referral business for over 20 years.

I don't need to be the biggest in order to be the best!
