Instead of telling you what I do, how many homes I have sold and all the awards I have achieved simply read my customer REVIEWS on Zillow.com. My customers will tell you more about me than I could ever say. I am truly humbled by their comments.
There are certain moments in life when you must put your trust in another person. When you are being wheeled into the operating room, or fastening your buckle on a plane, or handing your child over to a babysitter, there comes a time when you have to take a leap of faith and pray that you are in “good hands.” One of those moments came for us when we decided to sign a contract with Jeffrey Hogue to sell our home. It is a leap of faith that I am so very thankful that we made.
Selling our Berks County home has not been an easy process. There have been times of frustration, of disappointment, and even some tears along the way. All the while, Jeff has educated, encouraged, and comforted us. He has provided us with such a rich experience that has ranged from a Berks County history lesson to beautiful photographs of our home. He has been our guide, our cheerleader, and our friend.
Jeff was not the first realtor that we met with. In fact, another realtor had suggested a listing price of over $20,000 more than we ultimately went with. After meeting with that realtor, something continued to nag at us. Our meeting seemed a little too cookie cutter and frankly, a little too easy. I began to look online and Jeff’s name and reviews kept popping up. I sent him an email and within five minutes my phone was ringing. Jeff put in many hours walking through our home, educating us on the trends of our area, and getting an idea of our plans and expectations prior to even suggesting that we sign a contract. Then came the photos. Our house is not one of Jeff’s high-end listings. Our house is a charming, modest home. Jeff treated our home as if it was one of his multi-million dollar listings. In fact, it took two photo shoots to complete the job! He has a gift and is very excited to share the experience with you. You will never look at real estate photos the same again!
As much as Jeff researches real estate trends, he also researches the ever-changing world of social media and internet marketing strategies. Our home has been viewed by thousands! He has been able to adapt to the modernization of the real estate business and has emerged a leader in his field.
As I said, selling our home has not been easy. We are hopeful and committed, thanks to Jeff’s encouragement, advice, and expertise. The other day, Jeff said to me, “Let’s get your family into a home with a future.” I was yet again reminded that we’re not in good hands…we’re in great hands.
Jeffery Hogue with Weichert Realtor’s in Berk’s County is the BEST! His years of experience and his wide knowledge on selling of homes, sold my home in less then 60 days. We tried selling our home before with no results. Jeffery comes in with his magical camera and really showed the beauty of our home, the result’s were we had closing 55 days later!! Jeffery, really knows what he is doing when taking pictures and the importance of what is necessary to show in a home. He also understands that the computer is the “window” for all the world when selling homes. It is NO longer agency showing homes but the public looking on line first. Just look at some Realtor’s pictures then go to Jeffery’s site and see the marvelous difference!!! You will have NO doubt Jeffery is your next Realtor.
Plus there is another BIG difference with Jeffery’s office. Wait for it….. he actually has people who answers the phone and are friendly. If they are busy and you leave a message, out of 99% of the time they WILL get back to you the same day. Also they are very knowledge about the selling of homes and if they do not have the answer, they find out and get back to you. Being retiring service Vet we have moved a few times and it is a pleasure to have such a friendly , knowledge and caring Realtor and staff.
Jeff Hogue took the time from day one to explain the entire process and answer all of our questions out of sheer courtesy. His expertise allowed us to hunt for only what we were most interested in and got us results quickly. Jeff was Respectful and fun. He always took time to show us important areas to keep in mind when in a “Walk through” to further educate. When we were in the offer process, he explained all the options in depth to allow us to make the best move. We ended our hunt with the GREATEST final price imaginable AND a house, we are excited about raising our two small sons in. Jeff Hogue was there the entire process! Looking back, we would not have wanted to go through this journey with anyone else. Vote for Jeff Hogue! You won’t be disappointed!
It is a pleasure for us to recommend Jeff Hogue, premier agent for Prudential Landis Home Sale Service. While we know there are many good agents in our area, it was most reassuring to know we were working with one such agent when selling our home and purchasing another. We found his preparation, preparedness and professionalism to be impressive. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable regarding the housing market in Berks County. He was able to sell our home in 7 days. We were very impressed by him. He went out of his way to make things go smoothly from start to finish. We are extremely thankful for the service that Jeff provided.
We purchased a home in Mohnton using Jeff as our buyer’s broker and I can not even begin to tell you how fantastic he is to work with. Having never owned a home before we were a little skeptical of working with a realtor (I had always placed them in the used car salesman category) so we were in need of someone we could really trust that had OUR interests in mind and who was super knowledgeable. Jeff was definitely that person- a pure PROFESSIONAL. I now see why he has received so many accolades and why his Zillow reviews are the way they are. The guy is a machine; he worked his tail off to ensure that everything about this process was taken care of and every question and concern we had was answered. You may think based on sheer volume that he just gets things sold without truly making sure that a home is right for the buyer. Again, this was not the case. He wasn’t there to merely sell us a house and he reiterated this time and time again; he was there to find us a home that we loved, that fit our price range and that we felt 100% comfortable in. Jeff and Ann were there every step of the way answering dozens and dozens of phone calls. They never left us hanging, they got things done! Other realtors may throw clichés around like “My clients are like my family/friends” but Jeff truly treats you this way. Working with him was the absolute best decision we could have ever made and I can say wholeheartedly that he will be our go-to guy for any real estate endeavors we may have in the future. Thank you Jeff and Ann for all of your hard work and cooperation during this exciting time in our lives!
We are the proud owners of a beautiful home that we initially thought was out of our reach — and we couldn’t have done it without Jeff. We found him online and chose him because of the reviews. The reviews were right! He is warm, patient, and just the most friendly person you can meet. He always returned our calls within a reasonable amount of time. He made us feel like we were his number one priority. What I loved best was that he always gave us credit for our intelligence and was never condescending, even though we were first time home buyers who knew absolutely nothing about real estate. Most importantly, he is very knowledgeable about the local market and the home-buying process. We chose to put our trust in his experience and expertise, and not try to figure out everything ourselves. That made our home-buying process a lot less stressful, even enjoyable. If you’re looking for a home in the Berks County area, we would highly recommend Jeff Hogue.
After 7 years, and six realtors I have finally sold my home! Thank you Jeff Hogue and Ann DeCisco from Prudential Landis Home Sales! To sell a home in today’s tough market you need a true professional. If you truly want to sell your home and not just give a broker your listing, call Jeff Hogue! Before Jeff, five previous realtors listened to me and what I wanted, and my house just sat there with a sign out front for seven long years. Jeff is aggressive, experienced, logical, and most important…..he works for you! In the end the negotiation process was grueling! We had to overcome so many obstacles. Ann DeCisco, Jeff’s assistant, was unwavering and such a realist! If you want to put your home up for sale……call any realtor. If you want to sell your home…. call Jeff Hogue. Thank you both so very much.
Jeff did an excellent job selling our house. The pictures he took of our house exemplified the features that were helpful to sell and get showings in a short period of time. We followed his instruction and directions he provided and sold our house within 90 days. When we got to the negotiations with buyer he helped us to make the right decisions. Never expected that result in this economy.
As a Real estate broker in New Jersey for over 25 years I was in the position to choose a local Berks County, Pa. Realtor to handle the sale of my parents home. After interviewing several agents I decided to list our family home with Jeff Hogue. Jeff was in contact with us constantly and we were never left waiting for a response to any questions we had. He constantly kept us up to date on the current market conditions and advised us how to proceed. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, feedback and negotiating skills. He was completely involved from preparing the home to sell, marketing the property, negotiating a sale and through the financing and closing process. I couldn’t have done a better job for my family myself if i was a broker in Pennsylvania! Highly recommend Jeff and his team!!
Our first meeting with Jeff was a chance meeting. I kept going back to a house online and his name was on it, I emailed him and we set up a date. Although we decided against the house, meeting Jeff was the BEST thing that could have happened for us! First time home buyers and trying to self teach ourselves was not a fun (or easy) process. Jeff (and Ann!) helped us through the WHOLE process, never tiring of my endless emails, our endless questions, or cheering us up when we felt low about ever finding our house. He explained and walked us through the processes and found us houses that he thought matched our criteria and likes. His knowledge of the areas that we were thinking of was key to finding an area we felt we could grow into. It’s hard to describe exactly how fantastic he is, you really have to meet him to find out. And trust you/me, he was always available and the most important thing is: HE KNOWS HIS STUFF! When we found our house, it’s just like I heard people say! Angels sang, the world was brighter, rainbows and kittens rained from the sky…but it was just out of our reach. That did NOT deter Jeff at all. He worked with us, the sellers, and their Realtor until we got to a place we could all handle! None of this would have happened without our real estate team. The whole home buying experience can be a little scary, especially if it’s your first time doing so. I’m so glad that we had Jeff to help us through everything. We’ll be thanking him for the next 30 years! 🙂
I am writing this from a recent experience with a go getter realtor, Jeffrey Hogue. If you have tried the rest go with this one. What an energetic man. None of the waiting ‘till Monday with him, he is a seven day a week Realtor This is the third house we have sold and I wasn’t getting the bad deal again we had with the other two houses. As the saying goes you pay for what you get, how true. It was to the point where we felt like a jinx. To put this house on the market, I went searching on the internet, I needed someone I was thinking with results. I love to look at Zillow.com and every time I went in I saw this guy, I thought to myself what’s up with him, I read the paper and there he was again. So I checked his web site. What a nice set up, I thought we want our house in those spot lights. So I emailed him, and to my surprise he emailed back almost immediately. I thought to myself WOW, can’t believe it someone that is on top of it. He came to our home for a meeting, checked it out and he said you keep a very nice home, be proud of yourself, and he would be proud to help us sell it. We should let him know, I thought great not another pushy Realtor and not constantly calling you all the time. He said if you don’t like something I am doing just tell me I want to be a friend in the end not just someone you refer to as oh that Realtor we had. If you don’t like my ways, I don’t sign contracts, I’ll be gone in 30 days your choice. What a statement he made, he will never be a pesky calling Realtor we decided right then he was our man, we didn’t have to let him know. He brings his photo studio on wheels and what beautiful results he photo shoots. In no time at all we were part of his web site looking great. He sold the house for us in 11 days the first time with going to settlement quickly. All packed and ready to go, I get a phone call hours before settlement saying the family that bought the house decided to transfer to Buffalo, New York instead of here. I couldn’t believe it, never heard of such a thing happening and then to us. We were back to square one. We told Jeffrey are you sure you want to deal with us we told you we were a jinx with house selling. He told us don’t be ridiculous, it wasn’t your fault, so he moved quickly to get it back on the market. He said I’ll have that sold in 60 days don’t worry. We weren’t as optimistic as he always is, but maybe I should be because he tells it like it is. He is a great marketer, it did sell like he said it would, in 60 days and did go to settlement. He said a few times that when he sells a house at the end he wants a friend and he got 2 more right here. What a great guy, heck he isn’t just a friend he became part of the family. Our son is going with Jeffrey also, and he is a little more of a hard sale then we are with people, not the house but the son. Jeffrey will get the home of their dreams for them I am sure even though it is a tough buy because of being a short sale. If you want a man that sets out to accomplish goals boy am I glad I made the choice to research and go with Jeffrey Hogue, he will get to the finish line and adopt new family members too. Oh yea, and at settlement he assured us we are not a jinx, he worked his hardest and got the job done not once, but twice.
We built our log home in 1980 and lived in it for 31 years when retirement took us to Florida. After interviewing a few Realtors we selected Jeff to handle the sale of our home. We could not have made a better selection. His knowledge of the local market place, his exceptional photographic skills and his presentation to potential buyers allowed for a quick and trouble free sale. We have recommended Jeff to numerous friends and family and are sure they will be as pleased as we were with his professionalism.
We purchased a home and sold our home in less then thirty days. Jeff and his staff was instrumental in ensuring a smooth process. Jeff and his team communicated and was easily accessible throughout the day or night. His knowledge of Berks County and the proper contacts was tremendous. He was second to none in photographing our home with very professional photos.
We listed our home with Jeff and were very pleased with the results of our sale. We were on vacation when an offer came in and he was excellent at helping us negotiate long distance. We were kept aware of all aspects of the offer and were able to come to an agreement and then enjoy our trip knowing our home was under contract and in good hands.
My husband and I have been fortunate enough to work with Jeff on several occasions over many years. He has a unique ability to balance a level of professionalism with a personal approach that makes us feel comfortable, informed and focused on results. Jeff has consistently provided appropriate guidance and structure that ensures success. It is a great testament to Jeff’s ability and approach that we continue to call him again and again for all of our real estate transactions. I recommend him to my friends, family and colleagues without reservation.
Jeff Hogue was our listing agent of our house we just sold in August. Earlier this spring my wife and I decided to put our house up for sale. We talked to Jeff and he immediately came over to our house and discussed the listing. When he showed up he was prepared and had market place statistics and all the current listings in our area. He laid out a timeline and all the steps we needed to do as home owners to get the house ready for sale. in a period of 120 days the house was marketed shown over 20 times and was sold. The reason Jeff is successful in real estate is: 1) professional 2)loves his job 3) Marketing 4) trust worthy In Closing Jeff has become a friend and he takes great pictures.
We enjoyed working with Jeff Hogue as our Buyer’s Agent. He is an experienced negotiator, quite knowledgeable, a caring individual on whom we felt we could depend for guidance in the research and purchase of a home here in Berks County. The kids are now counting Jeff as part of the family . . . !
We have been working with Jeff for many months now and like some of the folks you see on “House Hunters” – we have strong opinions and needs.
Our considerations have been varied, from old to new, build or remodel & on & on… Throughout the process, Jeff has never given up on us and helped us along with our journey. This requires lots of patience and tenacity!
In the process Jeff helped educate us to the varied options, always having our best interests at heart. In the end, we have found a terrific home that has met all of our objectives. At the same time, he has helped us prepare for the listing of our home.
If you want a true professional who knows how to market real estate in the ever changing market we find ourselves, he is your “go to guy”. Having confidence in your representative cannot be understated, nor should one accept the mediocre when it comes to decisions regarding a prized asset such as your home.
Highly recommend Jeff if you want peace of mind and confidence that you are making good decisions based on the experience, knowledge, and unending efforts of a real pro.
We had a previous Realtor for 7 months and had minimal showings due to the Realtor’s lack of communication and expertise. After listing our home with Jeff, we had 2 offers in less than a month! He made the process easy and he communicated with us throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to sell their home.
We had no intentions on needing a Realtor or even moving again. Then we met Sharon and our curiosity about the house next door became a possibility. She introduced us to Mr. Hogue and within a couple weeks time we sold our home and were moving next door. Crazy, right? So many things had to work out perfectly for this to happen for us. And Jeff Hogue made it happen. He made the whole experience well worth it. His knowledge of all aspects of realty was impressive and comforting. (His passion for photography didn’t hurt either) The best part of it all is that you can tell he really loves his job. I am forever grateful for what he did for us and I believe we have a forever friend.
We hired Jeff because we had seen his work(photos)on the web while looking at homes for sale.His pictures really do make a difference.After all,getting clients to your home is half the battle.Jeff’s pictures do that.He takes the time to explain in details what he’s going to do.He took an entire 8 hr shift to photograph our home.He seems like he never goes home.I would describe Jeff as dedicated,passionate,honest,and a true pro.Needless to say our home sold in 8 days,in this market.
Yes I highly recommend Jeff. In my 40 years we have purchased and sold quite a few homes and never had a Realtor work as hard as him. He took the time to sit and talk with us and explain exactly how he works. He spent many hours here taking photographs to help market our property. From my experience all the other Realtor ever did was put a sign in our yard. He has gone above and beyond and can actually say he will earn every cent he makes from the sale of our property.His marketing skills are very impressive and he surely knows what he is doing. Also want to add that he is the first Realtor that has your best interest at heart meaning when we go to look at a property we like he doesn’t try to push it on us. He takes the time to go through the house and point out things that are faulty and would cause a financial burden down the road. So Yes I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone I know looking to purchase or list theirs with.
We purchased and sold a home using Jeff as our Realtor and could not be any more happier. Jeff is hard working, knowledgeable, and easy going – yet professional. Jeff sold our home in less the 30 days, something we thought was impossible due to the real estate market conditions at the time. His photography skills are out of this world!! His assistant Ann is wonderful too! Jeff and Ann always took the time to answer any questions we had no matter how big or small. I believe Jeff truly loves what he does -just look at his bucket truck – That’s passion! I have already and will continue to recommend Jeff Hogue to anyone looking at buying or selling a home in Berks county. If we ever need the assistance of a Realtor again Jeff is top spot on our list!
Jeffrey Hogue is not your typical realtor. He truely cares about the needs of his clients. Not only does he know real estate but he loves it! We really felt comfortable working with him. He is such a wealth of information but aside from all that he is a real person. I think when people are looking to sell or buy a property they should work with someone that has their best interest in mind. It’s really hard to find that but we hit a home run with Jeff! We still call him anytime regarding questions and he always gets right back to us!
As someone who is more technology-savvy, I was very wary of “traditional” agents telling me about open houses and flyers being printed. Jeff’s focus on the online aspect of home sales really made a lot of sense. Another huge factor in choosing Jeff was the quality of the photos in his listing- they are unmatched in the area. The results showed- our home was on the market for single digit days and sold for basically the listing price. Jeff also assured that all of our questions were answered and that the entire transaction flowed smoothly. I would definitely use Jeff again, and highly recommend his services.
