Peapack-Gladstone HomeSite Client
"Cecelia was fantastic to deal with in the purchase of our home. Not only is she a pleasure to spend time with during the process, she was always on top of any new listings and notified us as soon as they became available. She was always willing and ready to show us a property at any time and her communication was great and timely. We never felt pressured to make a decision and we never felt pushed in one direction of another. Ceil gave us the honest pros and cons of every property we looked at. She spent the time needed and gave us great advice throughout the process and in the end, with her help, we purchased our first choice property. I can't recommend Ceil enough if you are looking to sell or purchase a home in central and northern New Jersey. She has the experience, the knowledge and takes the time needed to get the job done." back to top
New Home Buyer - Morris County, NJ
"Cecelia was outstanding. Our transaction had many challenges but Cecelia was consistently diligent and made sure we got our dream home. I was impressed how responsive she was at all times to calls and emails, and she always knew the status of the smallest details. If you need a Realtor, you need Cecelia Bogart." back to top
35 Acre Horse Farm Buyer - Hunterdon County
"When we first met Cecelia at an Open House, she was very easy to work with, not a high pressure sales person, who not only spent the time to discuss the property very honestly and openly with us, but also spent a lot of time showing us comparison properties and the general vicinity. Once we had made the decision to make an offer, Cecelia was helpful in making sure all potential issues were resolved, either by herself or by getting another expert involved. What could have been a very stressful time for us was minimized by her outstanding efforts to get the deal done." back to top

Short Sale Buyer & Home Seller
"Unbridled, well mannered tenacity; Non-stop optimism; Unrelenting pursuit of customer satisfaction; and unmatched professionalism mark only some of Cecelia Bogart's outstanding attributes. Cecelia was the cornerstone in achieving extremely successful results during my recent short sale pursuit of seven months duration. Within three days of closing on my buy-side transaction, Cecelia listed, showed and received two offers on my sell-side home. Cecelia facilitated the actions necessary to close on the old home within a 30 day period. To list, show, contract and close a property in this short period is unheard of in today's market. It was Cecelia's knowledge of the market, pricing strategies, staging and buyers which were priceless. I would recommend Cecelia to anyone interested in achieving desired results with a dependable, trustworthy partner as the one I found with Cecelia.
Seller/Buyer Client with Special Needs & Senior Parent
"My husband, 90-year-old mom and handicapped sister spent 23 years in a large, unique mother-daughter home in Bridgewater. The home served us well functionally but was never our dream home. We planned on a major remodeling project but went into sticker shock after receiving several estimates. We really wanted to find our dream home but never thought we could find something that could accommodate all of us and our special needs. We also worried that having our home on the market would be very stressful for my mom.
My husband started half-heartedly searching on the internet. He ran across a home and contacted the broker, Cecelia Bogart at Weichert Realtors. She impressed my husband because she was very knowledgeable and helpful, not pushy or intrusive at all. She only contacted us with homes that met our needs exactly. The very first home she showed us was gorgeous and had a mother section. We quickly came to trust and rely on Cecelia to make the impossible happen - find us a home we all could love (no easy feat) AND sell our unique Bridgewater home in one of the worst real estate markets in history (Fall 2008-Spring 2009).
As it turned out we bought the first home Cecelia showed us despite seeing dozens of others over several months. Our Bridgewater home was a difficult sell - a 45 year-old center hall colonial that needed some serious updating, especially my mom's side of the house. Cecelia went to extraordinary lengths to get our home noticed, including getting a full page "featured home" segment in the Courier News and running several open houses. Cecelia worked long hours, seven days a week and probably 10 hour days - we felt like we were the only clients she had although I know for a fact this was not the case. She was very patient and kind with my mom, spending a couple days every week showing the home and always accommodating my mom's special needs.
I still can't believe it but we moved into our dream home on June 25th, 2009 - we had so much fun this summer decorating our gorgeous home and grilling/entertaining on our beautiful terrace. I can't thank Cecelia enough for helping make our dream come true.
Estate Home Sale
"I worked with Cecelia during a very difficult time in my life. My father had passed away suddenly, and we were getting ready to sell his house. Cecelia helped us through the very difficult process of listing, showing, negotiating, inspecting and finally selling the estate. Thanks to her an emotional, often frustrating time in our lives was made easier by her professionalism and ability to stay cool during the hard parts. We absolutely could not have done it without her!!! Choose Cecelia for any real estate purchase or sale, and don't look back. You won't regret it. I promise
