About us

As Wokingham and Crowthorne’s leading independent agents, we’re here for our local community as well as guiding and supporting our customers through their home-moving journeys.


Why Michael Hardy?

Michael Hardy may be a familiar sight on the high streets of Wokingham and Crowthorne, and one of the most successful local estate agents, but we are not a company to rest on our laurels.

What sets us apart is the maturity and experience of our sales and letting teams and our stellar reputation for excellent customer service. We strive to offer ‘best in class’ service and use a forward-thinking attitude to support our customers through their home-moving journeys. But don’t just take our word for it…

Our History

Michael Hardy himself first opened for business in 1985 with only six staff. Following this success, he expanded the business to Letting, which continues to flourish today under our Letting Manager, Dan Macdonald. After an exceptional career, Michael retired in 2010 and sadly was taken from us later in a tragic accident. His picture takes pride of place in our offices, and his anecdotes are uttered daily.

Neal Mackenzie, one of Michael Hardy’s first employees, has since been instrumental in the business’s growth, holding the role of Managing Director until 2020. Still actively involved in agency matters, he decided to step aside for the younger generation to flourish.


As one of Wokingham and Crowthorne’s leading independent estate agents, we nurture a dynamic and inclusive work environment that encourages growth and innovation. If you are passionate about property and want to be part of an exceptional team shaping the future of the property industry, we invite you to get in touch.
