Realtor, Pennsylvania Realtor (21 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Douglassville, PA.
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.

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 reponse to any questions we had. He constanty 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 reccomend 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 homebuyers 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're so glad we found Jeff! His knowledge and expertise helped us sell our home quickly in a difficult market. Jeff is also very enthusiastic and efficient, which made the whole process so easy for us from listing right through to settlement. We will recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to sell their home in Berks county!
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.

it was very positive, he was very easy to work with, very knowledgeable. He worked very hard and long hours to get the work done. the house was unusual and took longer to sell. many realtors gave up but not jeffrey. he made it happen.
Working with Jeff to sell our home was a positive experience. His knowledge of Berks County real estate enabled him to market our home to obtain the best results. His photographs enhanced the overall beauty of our home inside and out. Jeff was professional and helpful throughout the home selling process. He made him self available to assist us every step of the way.
