I was born and raised in Western Massachusetts. My husband and I make our home in Easthampton, in a house I oversaw construction of in 2000. I choose to live here because I love everything this area has to offer. Breathtaking foliage, wooded trails, countless water access sites, options for either in-town or rural living, numerous bustling small town areas – and a night on Broadway just a few hours’ drive away – really do make the Pioneer Valley feel like paradise.
I love architecture and design and no detail in a house escapes my notice. I spend much of my free time attending estate sales and open houses, where I’ve learned to discover and appreciate styles and innovations that enhance residences from all eras of construction. This knowledge, along with over two decades of experience in the hospitality industry, equips me to fully understand your needs and help you find the perfect home. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, my experience as a homeowner and landlord allows me to expertly guide you through the home-buying process.
Whether you're buying or selling I look forward to working with you, and am available anytime.
Testimonials from Shelly's Clients
"Shelly Hardy sold our house in October 2014. She exemplified the perfect real estate agent. Extremely personable, helpful and genuine is how I would describe Shelly. She was willing to push herself to her limit to get our house sold. She scheduled an open house 3 weekends within a month, to ensure that as many people as possible could view our house. She went above and beyond her normal realtor duties before, during and following the sale of our house. I would whole heartedly refer and recommend Shelly to anyone who has/is trying to sell their house. She will do an excellent job for you."
"I wanted to share feedback about my recent experience working with Shelly Hardy. To sum it up, Shelly is incredible! She far surpassed any and all expectations I had and any realtor I have previously worked with. She was attentive, available and a wealth of knowledge and resources. She was there to support me every step of the way and guided me through parts of the process I could not have navigated without her. I have told everyone I know about her and plan to recommend her to anyone that ever mentions buying or selling a house. I have every intention of working with Shelly again and wanted to be sure you knew what an incredible asset she is to The Murphys Realtors."
"This past summer she helped me purchase a condo in Easthampton. It has been almost a year since I am most exceptionally happy with the move! Shelly was instrumental in helping confirm that the location was ideal for me, showing what was great about the home, and was also honest with what needed improvement (i.e. the outdated water heater, maintenance with the deck outside). When we moved forward with the the closing, she became the go-to person when I had questions or concerns in communicating with the sellers, the bank, and our lawyers. To be fair, the process caused a lot of grief; Shelly was the most competant individual involved with the closing and was able to ameliorate issues concerning the bank process and communicating with the seller's lawyers. Shelly is clearly above proficient at her job. Excellent at communication and working for her client (me) to ensure success. Please keep her on your A-Team. Although it is not a frequent occurance, I mention her and Murphys Realtors to those I know looking to buy a home."
"Of the four houses my husband and I have purchased, Shelly Hardy was the best real estate agent we have ever had. First, she was very personable and a good communicator. She seemed to understand what we were looking for in a house. Equally important, she is highly professional and knowledgeable. We were interested in an older home, and Shelly lined up 9 inspectors and was present for every inspection. She gave us solid advice while we were negotiating the purchase price."

"Shelly is great - I was so glad to work with her when selling our property. She patiently and cheerfully explained the process. Then she set out a plan of action, explaining how she would get the word out on our property; and followed through with updates to us. She met with the city planner, she helped us find the property pins and generally helped with due diligence. She even pulled me out of a snow bank I fell in while we were walking the property. We has a good laugh! I wholeheartedly recommend Shelly for your real estate agent."
"We highly recommend Shelly Hardy, the best realtor we have ever used, having sold 4 houses and bought 4 houses and one condominium in my life…so far: Shelly is a lovely person to work with and went far beyond the call of duty, especially when she helped us sell our house in Amherst recently. She definitely gave us the moral support we needed and the muscle support too (not an insubstantial amount!) without being asked. She has lots of good ideas, but also listens to yours. Shelly is definitely a team player, and I would recommend her without reservation."
