A realtor with amazing market knowledge is a great ally to have when looking for your new home. When that same realtor has a geniuine interest in sharing his community, the areas qualities and the lifestyle it fosters, that is an expert. This could be no more true than in the case of Joseph B. Bograd and his views on Bucks County real estate.
When clients come to you with an idea of what they want, how do you help them refine their criteria prior to finding a match?
I take great pride in understanding the wants of my clients. At our initial meeting, I ask my clients some basic questions to that help me take in the wants and needs of people. The preferred area and size of home that my clients are looking for are very large components. School District is big one, especially if they have little ones and are seeking the best schools in the area. And Lastly Price, Price is probably the number one criteria point.
What is the most important thing you look for when purchasing a home for yourself?
The most important thing I look for when purchasing a home is the location of the home. I think that has to be the number 1 on my list. No matter how beautiful the home is, if it’s in the right area, it’s worthless. I strive to advise my clients to focus on premier areas, where you they will always be ahead of the game
If you had to choose one piece of advice for first-time home buyers, what would it be?
If you had to choose one piece of advice for first-time home buyers it would definitely be to find a local broker in the area that you are seeking. So many times I meet clients that were looking to buy a home in a certain area and chose an agent who was not familiar with that location. In this business one must be knowledgeable and experienced in his field and area.
If you were not selling real estate, where would you be today?
If I were not selling Real Estate, I really don’t know what I would be doing. I grew up being submerged in Real Estate. My Father has been a Realtor for more than 35 Years. So I have lived and breathed it all my life. I absolutely enjoy what I do and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
What would you say is your most proud accomplishment as a real estate agent so far?
I would say that my proudest accomplishment in Real Estate thus far has been the reputation that I have attained in my area. The awards are great, don’t get me wrong. But knowing that when people think of Real Estate, your name comes up, there is no better feeling!!
What property do you currently have listed that you wish more people would see?
I presently have a few beautiful listings which are absolutely Phenomenal. One in particular is my gorgeous Estate in Huntingdon Valley.
