Jesse is a practicing Mechanical Engineer, REALTOR®, and CEO of Port City Property Management, L.L.C. Jesse is a New Hampshire local, who grew up in the small town of Canaan, NH. From there, Jesse went on to graduate from the University of New Hampshire earning a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Since that time Jesse has been designing electromechanical systems for both the Defense and Medical Industries. In his latest endeavor Jesse has been designing cutting edge medical equipment for a well-known research and development firm in Manchester, NH.

However, Jesse also has a Passion for real estate.  Growing up Jesse has always been fascinated with architecture and design, and perhaps that is what led him to persue a degree in engineering.  However, what first got Jesse into real estate professionally, was his own personal buying experience.  When Jesse tried buying his first house it didn't take him long to realize that the concept of scarcity certainly had not missed the City of Portsmouth. Everyone wanted to live downtown but the cost of living was through the roof. If you wanted to buy a piece of property forget about downtown. Jesse found himself faced with either paying rent for a few more years, living in a tiny condo on the outskirts of town or going elsewhere.  After speaking with a REALTOR®, and now a close friend, Jesse learned about the opportunities of purchasing a multifamily and becoming a landlord.  Once Jesse realized that he could not only have a place to live, but make money by purchasing, living in, and renting out a multifamily, he was hooked.  One thing led to another and now Jesse owns several multifamily units and operates a property management company.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Manchester, NH.

I just recently purchased a multi-family home in May 2012 using Jesse Bodwell as my agent. Over the past year Jesse went above and beyond dedicating a significant amount of his time and energy to help me find a unique house that met my strict set of specifications. Like most Realtors, he is friendly, courteous and professional, but these reasons alone are not why you should choose him; you should use Jesse as your Realtor if you want someone that is EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE of structures, building technologies and the systems within. Because of his extensive knowledge and passion, he was able to help me identify major issues in all of the houses we looked at prior to putting in an offer and paying for the home inspection. When I finally found my house and it came time for the inspection- there wasn’t a single surprise; Jesse had identified and informally disclosed the source of nearly every major problem prior to receiving the inspection report. Pick Jesse if you want someone who is technically superior and actually knows something about houses and construction- not just someone who can recommend the best color drapes. There are a significant amount of older homes in the Southern New Hampshire and Seacoast area's and after having worked with several Realtor’s in the past, I can honestly say that his superior knowledge and professionalism makes him the only person I feel comfortable recommending to a family member or close friend.  More Less

I am currently in the process of locating a house in southern New Hampshire and I chose to work with Jesse Bodwell as my Realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable and carefully takes the time to listen to my needs. Jesse has always been readily available for any questions I have and has made me feel at ease throughout whole process of finding my first home. I have reccomended Jesse Bodwell to several of my friends as a result of his expertise and customer service that continues to exceed my expectations.  More Less

Showed home in 2012 in Massabesic, Manchester, NH 03109.

I contacted Jesse after hearing good things about him from a colleague who he had sold a home to in the past. Jesse was always on time, professional, and extremely detailed with any questions or concerns that I had. Although I have decided not to purchase a home yet I will definitely be using him again once I decide to finally purchase!  More Less
