I have been working for you for years now. I’ve managed your transactions, offered advice when needed and provided a quality of service recognized not only by my patrons but also by my peers. I may know a little about you as we have seen each other before but, until now, we have not been formally introduced. My name is Arleen Hardenstein and I have been the friendly acquaintance behind the counter of Pacific Grove’s and the surrounding communities’ grocery markets for over two decades. I spent years behind the counter, meeting new and interesting people day in and day out. From the counter I moved behind the scenes into management, bookkeeping and training; in turn, enhancing my customer-centric foundation with valuable business experience. As the years passed, I was moved to larger stores across the county. I have lived in almost ten different areas across the county. With these moves came several real estate transactions in which I filled the roll of tenant, buyer and seller. I was an outsider to the real estate business and experienced first hand the emotion of the transaction: the intimidating paperwork, the stress of selling and the excitement associated with buying...but most importantly, I gained insight as to the value of a qualified professional REALTOR®. When the opportunity arose to become property manager at Bratty and Bluhm Real Estate--a fixture in Pacific Grove real estate for over 50 years--I jumped at the chance. For the past nine years I have honed my customer service skills and broadened my real estate breadth of knowledge. While my job titles have changed, the principles remain the same. I’ll use my experience, not only as a professional and REALTOR®, but as a wife, mother, buyer, seller, tenant and friend to provide quality, professional real estate services with a personal dedication to the client...not the transaction.I am the key to your move, and I will get you where you want to go.
