Realtor, Pennsylvania Realtor (21 years experience)
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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $375K in Douglassville, PA.
If you're after a realtor that knows what he is talking about, Jeff is your go to.
When we sold our house in the 2010 down market, Jeff gave us a number. Of course we thought it should be 10k higher. After a few weeks of hageling with a specific buyer we realized we were going to lose the sale if we didn't go with the price Jeff first suggested.
The house sold sold in less than 60 days.
If Jeff ever decides to get out of the real estate market, he could be a professional photographer. He really knows how to show a house.
Jeff, goes above and beyond for all his customers. He is not just trying to sell a house to someone, he is helping them find a home and create memories. We have known Jeff for many years and he has helped us with several purchases and sales of our previous homes. We have been so comfortable with his services that we recommend him to all our friends and family. Keep up the great job Hogie !!
I knew my house would be difficult too sell so I interviewed a number of agents. I picked Jeffery Hogue. From the marketing plan Jeffery developed which included professional photos of the interior, to the write ups for agents, to structuring of the sales contract to the actual closing, my home sold quickly. In life you meet very few "experts" Jeffery Hogue is a true expert.
I'd been searching for a home for a good 6 months. I'd seen 23 homes with 2 other agents; it was a blessing during the wee hours of the night when I came across a home for sale listed by Jeff on the internet. The home looked perfect on-line and the location was awesome. Incidentally, I had found when looking on line, when you get to the home in person, well, a picture doesn't always say a thousand words. But this home was even better in person than in the photos (not to mention the professional photography he takes himself). After 6 months and 2 agents and 23 homes, this one was it!
He talked to me about things the other agents didn't. It wasn't about the 'sale' but finding the right home for our needs. He was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and has a state of the art office complete with large flat screen monitor where he will walk you through inspection, run numbers, and neighborhood attractions.
I have this beautiful house and the process was very easy with no stress. He didn't pressure us, mislead us nor rush us into anything. He is professional, charming and really cares about his clients. I would highly recommend this agent in Berks County!!
I tried for years to sell my house in Wyomissing using several different realtors. I then received a mailing from Jeff and we decided to give him a try. It was the best decision we ever made. From the first meeting I could tell he was different. He honestly appraises your home and advises you of improvements that should be made. His photographs of your home are well planned and professional. Most importantly, he is there for you every step if the way! I highly recommend him!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Sinking Spring, PA.
Working with Jeff was a very positive experience as we had been searching for the right home for several months without the best advice or help. Once we did several home appointments with Jeff we realized he was the utmost professional with a knowledge base that gave us comfort in knowing we would have the best person advising us. He truly does operate on a different level than the rest with his understating of the market conditions and true home values.

We were fortunate to have chosen Jeff Hogue when we decided to sell our home. I had been reading Jeff’s informative columns in the Reading newspaper for several months and found them very useful information in them for preparing your home for a sale. And I checked out his website and was impressed to see how he marketed his listings with gorgeous photos. So when the time came to interview agents I called him first. We looked no further once we spoke to Jeff, as he was the knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional person we wanted to handle the sale of our home. The photos he took were beautiful, and showed our home exactly the way we wanted it displayed to potential buyers. Our experience was pretty unique, as Jeff brought us a buyer on the first day the home was listed. We wouldn’t expect him to work a miracle every time, but we were delighted that the sale happened so quickly and went so smoothly for us. If you plan to sell and want the best and most professional marketing for your home, we would highly recommend you call Jeff Hogue first.
