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 just in good hands…we're in great hands.
