Why hire us?
Bosshardt Realty Services, LLC was founded in 1987 with one simple philosophy... take care of the customer. Carol R. Bosshardt, owner and CEO, started the company with 10 agents and the dream of building a clientele based on personal relationships.
Carol was born in Rockford, Illinois, where she learned the art of the real estate business from her mother. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Science degree in social work, something that allowed her to integrate her mother's teaching and her own foundation in human services with her true passion: working with people.
In 2001, Carol received the distinguished Paul Harris Service Award, and in 2006 received her MBA in entreprenurial studies from the University of Florida.
Carol raised her children in Gainesville where they were educated and flourished in the public school system. Her daughter, Stacey, is an attorney in Washington, DC. and her son, Aaron, assists in managing Bosshardt Realty Services, LLC.
Despite the growth of the company since it was founded in 1987, Carol still feels that Bosshardt Realty Services, LLC is a family company and prides herself on operating it as such. Family-oriented businesses are a quickly dying breed; it is important to Carol to maintain close personal relationships with employees, associates, and the people they serve. This warm, familiar atmosphere is what sets Bosshardt Realty Services, LLC apart and makes it a great place.
Bosshardt Realty Services, LLC is an active member of these associations:
Gainesville Chamber of Commerce
