Bosshardt Realty Services was founded in 1987 as a family company with only 10 REALTORS®. In the last 26 years, the company has grown significantly and is continuing to expand. However we are a value based company. Every Realtor at Bosshardt strives to be a trusted advisor by agreeing to live and practice our core values. At the heart of our values is creating, living and working in a family culture.
Family-oriented businesses are a quickly dying breed; it is important for us to maintain close personal relationships with employees, associates, and the people they serve. This warm, familiar atmosphere is what makes Bosshardt Realty Services a great place.
