My Client Reviews
Carla Hardy was extremely helpful in finding us our forever home. She was honest and upfront. She was able to find us a house that fit our needs and was in our price range. Her advice and support through closing was invaluable. She was easy to reach and answered any of our questions at all times. Buying a house in todays market is hard but Carla helped us every step of the way.

I do not believe we could have had a better realtor in this market. I do not believe we would have found a house if it was not for her tireless efforts and lightning-quick communication. Carla was always extremely prompt to answer any questions, immediately on the ball to schedule viewings, and no-nonsense when it came to explaining things to a first time home buyer. Buying a home with the VA loan in this high-paced and competitive market sometimes seemed like an unattainable goal, but Carla never let us give up hope and was always patient and encouraging, Carla is extremely knowledgeable and was always ready to encourage us to either step on the gas or pump the brakes. I always felt Carla had our best interests in mind and from our first viewing until closing I always felt like we were her only clients. Her hard work and dedication were this single biggest factors in our ability to buy our first home.
Carla was very attentive to my needs and concerns. As first time buyers we knew very little. Carla was patient and went well beyond to make sure we were comfortable . Questions were answered promptly and she was always there when we needed her. Absolutely recommend this talented lady for any of your real estate needs!!!
I am thankful that we had Carla as our agent. She went over and above to help us find the perfect location. Once we found the lot we wanted she walked us through all of the steps and made sure we were comfortable with the process. I highly recommend Carla and if we have any more real estate needs in the future she will be our agent.
Carla is my go-to realtor for all of my Real Estate needs, from Buying a commercial business location and a home to selling homes. Carla always pays close attention to detail and really makes the process of buying and selling a really great experience. I can't recommend Carla enough.
Very trust worthy, made our first home buying experience easy and un-stressful. Always was there to answer any questions we had, and took all of the extra steps to have the answers to our questions. Thanks you Carla!!
If you're looking for a realtor in Missoula, I can't recommend Carla enough. We actually interviewed a couple of different agents and she was by far the best - calm, organized, friendly and made the whole process easy and stress-free. We were also buying while we were living out-of-state, she was able to provide video tours of the houses we were interested in, answer questions about the area and schools, and made the buying process extremely easy. Thanks Carla!
Carla helped me with the sale of my primary residence and also an adjoining rental. Her knowledge of the Mission Valley was invaluable. Carla helped me with pricing both properties and also gave pertinent information to expedite the sales of both pieces. I recommend Carla to help you sell your property without reservation.
Carla was fantastic to work with. She was super friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive to our needs. She really listened to us, and with her knowledge of the area worked to find us the right property to suit our needs and lifestyle. We felt Carla always had our back and was working for us. I have worked with many realtors over the years and Carla was top notch in every way! I would highly recommend her and would use her again if I need a realtor in the Missoula area.
Carla was fantastic to work with! She offered outstanding service and was always more than accommodating to our needs. Anyone and everyone looking to buy a home should work with Carla! She is the best!
I cannot overstate how fortunate we were to have found Carla to help sell our cabin. As first time sellers, we were expecting to jump thru hoops but Carla made the process seamless. She was patient and listened to all of our needs and explained each process of the sale. So thankful she was in our corner.
I would definitely recommend Carla Hardy to anyone! She did an incredible job marketing the home at the upper end of it's value, and was very helpful in the preparation making it much easier to sell. Her personality and local market knowledge make her a great person to have on your team when buying or selling a home! We're calling Carla next time for sure!
Carla was our selling agent & the whole process went great. She was very responsive to issues as they arose and timely with communications to us. She is a problem solver. I would highly recommend her services.
Carla Hardy was a joy to work with. She was very professional, and very patience with me. Carla went up and beyond to show my property. to potential buyers. She helped me with all my questions and concerns. When we were negotiating with potential buyers, she listened to what I was hoping for with the sale. I would recommend Carla for anyone selling or buying a piece of property in a heart beat! Thank you for all that you did for me in selling my family home.
Carla was a very good and efficient agent. She gave us good advice, but allowed us to make decisions. She did every thing very quickly and correctly. We have already recommended her to others and we would use her again if we were in Missoula.
Carla helped us find our first home. We were buying a home in an extremely competitive market and Carla helped us with recommendations on offers and time frames. We had a 30day closing period that went smoothly with no hiccups. Between emails, texts, and phone call Carla was readily available to answer all of our questions. We could not have asked for a better person for this process.
We were first time home buyers and Carla made the process SOO easy! She was there to answer all of our questions and point out things we would not have known otherwise. She even came over and helped us stain the deck of the house we were buying! I can't thank Carla enough for being so professional and courteous through our whole purchase!
My husband's job transferred us to Missoula from Boise, ID and we had a limited amount of time to find a house, close, and move before he had to start work. Carla did a fantastic job finding homes for us to look at that fit the needs and wants of our large family. Due to her dedication and knowledge of the area we wanted to live in, we were under contract after one day of house hunting. She continued to act as a liaison between us and our lender throughout the entire process which helped us get to closing on time so that we could move in exactly when we needed to. We have been very happy with the service we received and will definitely use Carla if we ever move again!
Carla was amazing! She gave my wife and I as many options as she could while being available whenever we asked to walk through homes. I will be using Carla's proactive professionalism in any future real estate ventures.
It is with great enthusiasm that we recommend Carla Hardy! Coming from another state and trying to search for properties in Montana online can be a formidable task. Carla responded to our inquiries immediately when we first called and provided a much needed and experienced perspective that proved indispensable for our ultimate decision to relocate. To begin with, Carla was the only RE agent willing to show us homes during the limited time we had in Montana on our first trip in October 2017. She proved to be knowledgeable in so many areas that informed our decisions along the way. Carla provided us with perspectives about the areas we were interested in looking and helped us narrow down our search to the area where we ultimately decided to purchase a property. She is knowledgeable about the needs of livestock, wells, irrigation and even hunting regulations. She happily walked the multiple 20+ acre properties with us to get a feel for the land, even in one case up a mountain! Carla proved to be flexible with her time to fit into our schedule and did so with enthusiasm and a willingness we have rarely encountered working with other agents. To name a few things, Carla provided contact with the seller's agent and got back to us with answers to our questions immediately. She Skyped with us at the property before we purchased and provided a virtual inspection with us to ensure all our questions were addressed properly. Since we were signing remotely from Colorado, her representation of our positions were spot on and crucial to our understanding of the process and our comfort in knowing our concerns were being properly addressed. Carla visited with the neighbors to ask questions for us, kept an eye on the property until we finally moved to take possession and always provided us with a certainty that our interests were being well represented throughout the process. We enthusiastically endorse and recommend Carla Hardy. She proved to be a wonderful and always cheerful resource for us who made the process seem easy. Thank you Carla!
Carla sold my house in less than a week for more than other agents wanted to list the house for. She hired a wonderful photographer and put together a very professional presentation to market my house. She is extremely reaponsive and a pleasure to work with.
We would like to add our wonderful experience in using Carla as our real estate agent. We had a quite complicated situation, as we serve as guardian for an elderly person & had to sell the home quickly so assets could be used for assisted living. Carla made many things happen in a short period of time, including working with her son in the neglected yard to make it look much better. She also navigated some very complex issues with the city with ease. We would highly recommend Carla as a person who gets things done & has a great deal of expertise in many areas of real estate. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience.
Larry & Dee C.
We have worked with Carla twice as buyers and once as a seller over the years. We really can't say enough good things about her. Real estate transactions can be hard and stressful but with Carla we can honestly say all our transactions were very smooth and stress free. She is extremely honest, approachable, personable, extremely patient, generous with her time, very quick to respond and so knowledgeable. She goes above and beyond. We will definitely be using her for all of our real estate needs in the future! We couldn't recommend her enough for anyone looking for peace of mind when buying or selling!
Carla is a realtor extronaire! She knows what to do and how to do it whether it is helping you buy a home or sell one. She is proactive and always willing to do more than expected. She was available night and day and an easy person to person to talk to. Loved her upbeat attitude!!
Carla was everything we hoped for in a real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, professional and attentive. Our house was under contract within a week! Carla made sure we were informed and helped guide us through every step of the process. Her level of experience and expertise was obvious and reassuring, making our experience a very positive one. Even after the sale, Carla has made the extra effort to check in with us. We would highly recommend Carla as a real estate agent!
On more than one occasion, I have needed the services of Carla Hardy at The Lambros Agency, and highly recommend her. She handled the sale of my property in Missoula even though I live in the Seattle area. I felt very well represented in all phases of the negotiations and sale even though it involved extra work to close during an estate in probate. She communicated well with the title company, my lawyer, the buyer and myself, keeping us all in the loop. Whether you are buying, selling or just looking, you are safe in her hands. Sincerely, Stephen Van Meter
Carla was so helpful educating us as first time buyers, how to buy land as an investment. We really had no idea how to formulate a fair and reasonable offer. She walked us through the whole process with quick responses to our numerous questions. We relied heavily on her vast local knowledge, and she worked quickly with our time line, moving the deal along without any issues. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carla to others, and we would certainly reach out to her first for our next real estate venture.
Carla not only makes selling easy but makes buying fun and exciting. She has a great understanding of the processes and kept us informed of all possible savings as well as any complications along the way. She was available for questions, meetings and showings at any time and we always felt comfortable and not pushed in making our decisions. We relied heavily on Carla's knowledge and would recommend her to anyone. We are so thankful for her easy going and down-to-earth personality as well as her dedication to the success of our last two moves.
Carla was amazing! We were buying a house from out of town and she had a huge amount of properties for us to look at and was very flexible and knowledgeable of the area. It was a long process but she answered our questions and made it very smooth. Definitely recommend her!
Carla is very attentive, listened to what I was looking for and helped me find it! She knows the market well and I greatly appreciated her hinesty and follow through to make sure everything was still going well, long after we closed.
My husband and I moved to the Missoula area in October of 2016 and were in need of a realtor to help us purchase a home. We were referred to Carla Hardy through my brother and my parents. It had been many years since my husband or I had purchased a home and we were very fortunate to have Carla helping us. She is very knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and she truly listened to all our questions and concerns and was very honest with us. When we asked questions, we wanted the truth and did not want to hear what she thought we wanted to hear. To us, this was very important and because of this, we trusted her completely! We never felt like we were being rushed nor pushed into anything. Whenever we had questions (which was often), she always returned our calls and took the time to speak to us...never rushed. We also never felt like we were just a source of income to her. We always felt like she was there for us and us alone. We also felt she always had our backs. As it turned out, she helped us with a home that was just built at the west end of Missoula. We moved in on 10/13/17 and are loving it! She worked very hard for us and whenever she had any type of suggestion, we listened, and she was so right on so many things, God bless her! If we had not listened to her, we would probably still be looking for our home. She is a gem and truly knows her business! I would recommend Carla Hardy to anyone/everyone I know looking to purchase a home in the Missoula area. Thank you Carla for all your wonderful help!!!!
My husband and I worked with Carla to purchase our home and really cant say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time. We had a complex set of criteria with our home purchase and she worked through the challenging process from start to finish. Buying a home is not easy, but working with Carla made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend her!
Carla was fantastic!! I have worked with Carla twice, once when I bought my land and then when I sold it, she was on top of every detail from start to finish. I would also like to say that never have I liked a realtor after a sale or purchase but Carla I would use again. (You would have to know me, but that means a lot!)
My wife and I are not real estate experts so we need to count on our realtor to guide, advise, and communicate with us throughout the process and that is why we reached out to Carla directly! Carla made herself available at our convenience, kept us informed at all times during the process, and knew the market well giving us informed advice. Although we live 60 miles from Carla's office it felt like she was right around the corner. We will certainly call Carla again if we ever need a realtor.
Carla made my home buying experience extremely comfortable and enjoyable. She was able to keep me informed every step of the way, and explained things to me in terms I could understand.
