Contacted Joe Bondar in November 2014 based on Zillow reviews. Was trying to sell a condo in the Pikesville area.
Joe is a straight shooter and is willing to help you without being overbearing (unless you want him to be I would imagine). He's been in the business for many years and his connections really paid off.
We had a legitimate buyer within hours of our place going on the market largely because of his contacts.
In addition, after we sold, he was very responsive to our needs to help explore rental properties in Howard County.
He is very accessible including by email and text messaging.
Because of Joe Bondar as our agent, the process could not have gone any smoother. We highly recommend him as an agent especially if dealing with properties in the 21209 area.

he is a true broker. He honestly represented the interests of the buyer and the seller.He resolved issues that arose to the satisfaction of both parties. I recommend h im highly and would de finitelly use his services again. some examples are as follows:some repairs needed to be made,joe worked out an agreement between buyer and seller. another example, seller had already moved to another city and buyer lived in another city , not where the property was located ,but joe was able to act as agobetween to keep the parties aprised of all details. although joe was the sellers agent he acted as a true brokerrepresenting the interest of both parties

Joe is truly a great realtor. The property was a tough sell because it was an estate sale and Joe really provided both great service and advice.
This was the first time I had ever sold a house and Joe walked me through all of the ins and outs without any confusing language. Joe explained exactly what needed to get done and some of the simple techniques to help sell the home. When we needed to fix a few items around the house to increase the value, Joe was there with a handyman to make sure the repair was done right. That is customer service!
When it came time for negotiations, Joe was in constant contact working through the details to ensure that we did not lose the bidder. He worked hard to get me the best deal and was amazing at fighting for my side.
Finally, Joe cares. This is something that makes a big difference. Joe, knows that his name is on the line and takes pride in his work. He understands the stress and emotions that come along with selling a home - especially one that has been in the family for over 35 years.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Joe for any real estate service.

Mr. Bondar was extremely patient with us in the homebuying process. His willingness to go the extra mile as well as being constantly available to answer any and all questions we had. We fully reccomend Mr. Bondar and would without hesitation use his services again should the need arise.
We used Joe Bondar as our buying agent for a home in the Pikesville area, and found him to be indispensable. He is as knowledgeable of the area and the local market as anyone in the field. As such, he was able to offer us prudent advice and helped us determine whether a listing was fair, overpriced, or a hot deal relative to the neighborhood. He was always forthright and let us know when he thought a perspective house was not a good deal.
Bondar constantly provided us good advice throughout the negotiating, closing, and move-in stages of the purchase. There are many important things that must be on the check-list of a first-time home-buyer, but are often overlooked in the chaos of of the buying process. Joe made sure we remembered everything. He is not just an agent; he's an advocate, guide, and a friend.

Joe was not only knowledgeable and efficient, he was also invaluable in negotiating with two prospective buyers and helping us close the deal with the second of the two interested parties. I would highly recommend him for real estate transactions in the Pikesville area.
