Hardman also works with interior decorating and home staging, along with the art of preparing houses to sell, as hobbies.
"I'm delighted to be representing Denton Publications in the Tri-Lakes area," Hardman said. "As a small business owner myself, I understand how tough it can be, especially now. It's no secret marketing budgets are as slim as ever. Helping folks determine the best use of those dollars is what I enjoy most. My clients know I only pitch what I think will work best."
