About Dunbar Hardy

I am a full-time REALTOR® focused on residential and investment properties (single-family homes, town homes/condominiums and investments) throughout Boulder County. I am a pro-active student of the dynamic local real estate market, while being forthright and organized in my communication, and tireless in my commitment to clients.

I first moved to Boulder in 1988 from New Orleans to attend the University of Colorado. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Environmental Conservation and went on to receive a Master's of Science (MS) degree in Environmental Education from Southern Oregon University.

I applied these degrees as an Environmental Educator/Teacher for a number of years. I have also been a professional whitewater kayaker, outdoor educator having been an Outward Bound and NOLS instructor, freelance writer/photographer in the outdoor/adventure travel industry, and a senior editor of two magazines—Kayak Session and Paddle World.

I am drawn to living in Boulder because of its vibrant and inspired community and the wonderful outdoor recreation opportunities. It truly is a unique place in the world to live. Please contact me and I would be glad to answer any local real estate questions you may have. I look forward to supporting your real estate needs however possible!

  • "Dunbar is just flat out terrific in every aspect and the only real estate professional my wife and I will ever feel this comfortable dealing with! He has the uncanny ability to simplify the situation and take as much stress out of the real estate process and off his clients as possible. His communication skills, his knowledge of the Boulder market and his perseverance to get the deal done are unparalleled and are just some of the reasons he is so good at what he does!"
    Rome & Juanita W.
    Buyers & Sellers in Boulder

  • "Dunbar is a total pro. When you talk to him he is very thoughtful with your time. He gives you just enough information, not too much and not too little, to help with the buying process. He is a great negotiator and does his homework on the area you’re interested in. He makes you feel very comfortable during the whole process. You feel like he has your back the whole time. He is calm and collected yet hustles. He goes above and beyond. We love Dunbar!"
    James & Emily P.
    Buyers in Superior and Lafayette

  • "I have purchased several properties with Dunbar, but this was my first time selling a home. Dunbar made the experience seamless and smooth. He is easy to get a hold of with any questions and his communication is clear and always helpful. We got the house closed in record time (during a pandemic, to boot)!"
    Hannah L.
    Seller in Louisville

  • "Dunbar was very helpful! He understood this was our first time buying a home and was very patient with us. He responded very quickly to all of our communications. Dunbar is just a kind person and made us feel very comfortable."
    Alison & Doug H.
    Buyers in Boulder

  • "Dunbar is experienced, professional, and does a fantastic job. He knows real estate and the market extensively. He listens well, engages appropriately, gives advice when needed, and asks the right questions as well. I would highly recommend Dunbar Hardy to anyone looking for an A+ agent."
    Leigh S.
    Seller in Boulder

  • "Dunbar was working with siblings in 3 states to sell our family home. He communicated very effectively to keep all of us informed, listened to, and heard our wishes for the property, and came up with a marketing plan that resulted in a full price offer in a week. This was a win-win for all of us!"
    Chip W.
    Seller in Boulder

  • "Dunbar was extremely helpful at every step of both the buying and selling of a home. He used his contacts and resources for repairs, painting, carpet, and staging which took a great deal of the pressure off us. He is also very knowledgeable and responsive to the needs of his clients. Great experience with his help and guidance."
    Suzanne Y. and Sam S.
    Sellers in Boulder

  • "Articulate. Competent. Professional. And who can forget patient. The feedback, coaching, and insights you have brought to each conversation have proven invaluable in giving me a lay of the land in Boulder County and what the trade-offs are in considering a home from one neighborhood to the next. Your consistent efforts to help me find the right fit, while never applying pressure, underscores the sincerity you bring to your work."
    Steve O.
    Buyer in Boulder

  • "Dunbar found exactly what we were looking for. The house wasn’t on the market yet but with Dunbar’s dedication and business relationships we were able to see the home and get it under contract. The transaction was smooth and the communication was excellent! I highly recommended Dunbar! He knows the business."
    Kevin & Patty H.
    Buyers and Sellers in Boulder

  • "We had the pleasure of working with Dunbar as our Listing Agent and Buyer’s Agent in a “down-sizing” move here in Boulder. I’m serious when I say that what you get in Dunbar is more than a “four corners” Real Estate agent. If you ask him, he will help guide your decision-making with thorough presentation of all alternatives (seller and buyer). Expertise, reliability, and trustworthiness."
