"Bonnie has so many years of experience in the market, and with her stunning staging and marketing tools I was able to have lots of traffic and a quick and efficient sale. While moving can be a stressful time, having Bonnie’s responsive and expert negotiating skills on my side surely paid off financially as well as minimizing my worries and concerns. Bonnie is a class act and after having worked in banking for over 20 years with mortgage buyers, I’ve met 100s of real estate agents. Bonnie Bodnar is outstanding in a crowd of many options. I’d reccomed her to anyone who wants an efficient and persistent go getter on their team when making a big change. Top notch all around! Thanks Bonnie, we couldn’t have done it without you! ????????"

"I met Bonnie out of the blue when I was looking for an apartment building. She went out of her way on a Sunday night to show me a hot deal on a 4-flat apartment. It was a foreclosure. I was quick enough to get it thanks to Bonnie but lost the deal when I thought I had my financing in order only to find out my bank didn't think so. It wasn't Bonnie fault; entirely mine. I was pretty bummed the deal fell through. Or, at least, I thought it fell through. Bonnie watched this property for over 6 months for me. The other person's financing fell through and I was able to get snatch up a great deal thanks to Bonnie's persistence. What real estate agent does this? She won me over as a lifelong customer. She's smart, very hard-working and on top of that a super nice person. I would give her 6 stars if I could."
