Ratings & Reviews

Joe was recommended to us by several home owners in the neighborhood. In our first meeting, Joe gained our confidence through his understanding of the local market and having several prospective buyers on deck. He was able to provide us with names of a few local contractors that performed needed improvements. His thoughtful insights and guidance were provided throughout the process. He represented us very well and our best interests always came first. Joe was always responsive and phone calls were immediately returned. He stayed with us through the closing process. We were impressed with his ability and professionalism. We highly recommend Joe.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Baltimore, MD.

We recently decided to move from New York to the Baltimore area and contacted Joe, based on his solid reputation, to help us in finding a home. When we came down to look at houses, Joe spent an entire afternoon driving us around various neighborhoods so we could decide which one would be the best fit for us. Joe was very knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods and let us know the pros and cons of each one. At no time did we feel that he was putting any pressure on us and we always felt that our questions were being answered honestly. After we decided on the house that we wanted Joe was available at all hours to help us through the transaction- from the signing of the contract until settlement. Joe also suggested a mortgage broker, home inspector and lawyer for the closing and spent a considerable amount of time with each one and ensured that the whole transaction went smoothly. We would gladly use Joe again in the future and highly recommend his services.

Sold a home in 2014 in Cheswolde, Baltimore, MD 21209.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Mount Washington, Baltimore, MD.

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.

Joe helped us sell our house in Baltimore. We especially enjoyed working with him, because he is completely focused on what his customer wants to do. He makes suggestions, listens to what you have to say, and lets you make the decisions. He sets down the facts very clearly. His negotiation skills are superb. ???Because of his insight into human nature, and his knowledge of the community, he is able to do it all with a great deal of tact and respect. We would highly recommend Joe because of his experience, knowledge, humanity, and character.

Bought a home in 2012 in Cheswolde, Baltimore, MD 21209.

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.
