About Jolene

You can easily see how Jolene’s background has been a prerequisite for her immediate success in Real Estate: with 20 plus years experience in Marketing and Advertising for such national clients such as Ford, Coca Cola Foods, and Conoco to name a few. And an extensive background in interior design with a high energy enthusiasm.


Born in Seattle, raised in a small beach town in Southern California, (Ventura). Jolene received a BFA degree in Graphic Design and Marketing from California State University Northridge (CSUN), as well as having studied at Pellissippi State University in the field of Interior Design. “Real Estate allows me to help my customers present their home in the most favorable light with staging suggestions, while my advertising background helps me to research where to find the most buyers”, says Jolene.


Jolene enjoys working with both buyers and sellers. From families that live here, seasonal residents, or investors, she is the recommended agent by many past customers that laud her abilities to find just the right property while immensely enjoying the process.  Honor and integrity is her front line in everything she does.
As an avid boater and fisher woman she enjoys being a leading real estate expert in the gulf access/waterfront market and understands draft limitations and different types of boating needs, from deep sea fishing to sailboating and yacht cruising.  She also enjoys scuba diving, lobster diving, scallop diving, paddle boarding, biking, traveling with her husband, Paul, two teen children and Tabasco, her Vizsla puppy dog.

She was so wonderful to work with. She took so much of her time helping us. She knows the area well and we were always kept informed throughout the buying process.

Jolene Hardy was an exceptional realtor. She had a professional photographer take photos of my parent’s townhouse to use in all advertising, including the internet. She had open houses for leads, and had realtors who showed the home fill out short surveys. The surveys helped us to determine the house appeared dated and was not getting good offers. The townhouse needed updating in order to get a reasonable offer. Since my parents no longer live in Ft. Myers while the townhouse was for sale, Jolene went to home improvement stores to select tile, granite counter tops for the kitchen, plumbing fixtures, paint for cabinets, and even new cabinet handles. She obtained quotes and negotiated very reasonable prices from contractors she has worked with before to get the upgrading done in the kitchen and tiling half of the first floor. We got a good offer before the upgrading was even completed, so it accomplished what we needed. Jolene acted not only as a  great sales associate, but also a home designer and type of contractor to coordinate all the upgrading and re-plumbing due to the uncovering of polybutylene pipes in the townhouse. The townhouse sold as planned. Throughout the listing and contract, Jolene remained in continual contact with us by phone, text and e-mail. She would send pictures of work in progress. We could not have sold the townhouse in this time period and for the price we received without Jolene’s help. She exceeded our expectation of a realtor, and we would recommend her without hesitation.

Jolene is a wonderful person to work with and is one of the best agents I have experienced in over 50 years of buying and selling homes. She found us the perfect house for our family.


Karidlogan reviewed Jolene

Jolene helped us find a home in the height of the buying market that made for difficult decisions. We found hundreds of homes in our price range that offered similar features that were must haves for us. She helped us narrow down our list to a reasonable selection for viewing. She was patient and stood by us and had our best interest in mind when we encountered an issue with the selling agent. She went above and beyond representing us as our agent for sure!

I’ve known Jolene for over 6 years…She is a consistent friend, but more importantly from the perspective of a prospective home owner or seller, she is a tireless worker that desires to ensure her client is pleased with the end result. I would heartily recommend Jolene as your real estate agent.

Pat Bowers reviewed Jolene

I HIGHLY recommend Jolene to anyone looking to buy or sell. She accomplished both for my husband and I in an efficient and timely manner, not to mention working with Jolene was an extreme joy. She didn’t take the easy way out by doing as little as possible, on the contrary. She went the extra mile to ensure my house showed well by taking as many professional pictures as was allowed by the software employed and bringing other agents in to view my property in order to bring in prospective buyers. Again I highly recommend Jolene!
