Richard Bocchieri Number of Years in Real Estate: 35 Title: Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker Biography: My first career was in education, starting as a teacher then finishing as a guidance counselor and having achieved my Bachelors, Masters and two PDs. In 1986, I began my real estate career and joined Netter Real Estate in 2009. In a sense, I am still an educator and offering guidance; this time I am outside of the classroom educating my clients on the selling and purchasing transactions; which have become so complicated recently and guiding them safely through the confusing and ever-changing real estate market. It is very satisfying to me to help people with not only the greatest financial asset in their lives, but their greatest social and emotional asset; where they celebrate holidays, raise their families and live their lives. I take the needs of my clients very ...

    • Marcia Rumsey Your envelope of mail arrived today. I cannot thank you and the buyer of 29 Primrose Lane enough for forwarding Barbs mail. We thought that we had taken care of all her affairs and will try to stop any additional mail coming to the condo. Thank you for the photo album! I cannot imagine where it was found, but it was a treasure and a gift that I will give to Barb when we come north to see her.Richie, you have been a joy! I am very grateful that you were on our team to help Barb!!!! If we are ever asked, YOU will be the realtor that I will highly recommend on Long Island. We are in good health and hope the same for you. It was a long winter, especially up north. Barb is doing okay and seems happy, which is most important!" (Received via email 4/26/24 - Seller)

    • Linda & Anthony Tomlin - Seller Richard did a great job in selling my home. He kept us informed all the time and I always felt he was working hard to get our house sold.

    • Dear Richard,We were so surprised to receive the personalized ice bucket and silver scoop. They are beautiful! They are also the first monogrammed item we own. Which is so fitting as brand new home owners. But, we are grateful for so much more. When I thought of having to work with a real estate agent during such stressful times, I was really concerned. As new parents, trying to navigate in a pandemic, buy a house during a virtually unprecedented housing market, and within a very short period of time, is intensely stressful. I figured we would probably have to keep our guards up, as we have not really had great experiences with real estate agents in the past. Boy, am I glad I asked my father for a recommendation. Richard, I dont think I can really articulate how much we appreciate all your support. You made our first home purchase something to rejoice. You and Kendra really minimized all the stress and helped us hang in there in buying the house of our dreams. We are truly grateful and will definitely keep in touch. Thank you so much! Sincerely,Vanessa and Bruce

    • "Rich is the best thing to happen for us in selling our home. He negotiated and managed our complicated sale like the professional he is. He was always responsive and you could always tell that he cares, not only about your transaction, but also for the people behind the client. Check out other realtors if you want, but once you meet Rich, you'll know that he's the realtor for you"! (5 Star Zillow Review, August 8th 2020)

    • Christopher & Daniele Welner "We had the pleasure of meeting Richard Bocchieri at an open house a year and a half ago when our family first started looking at houses. From the moment we met him, we felt comfortable as if we knew him for years. His warmth and kindness were evident right away and we knew we had found someone we could trust. Richard helped our family find our dream home and we will forever be grateful to him for that. He was extremely knowledgeable and really understood what we were looking for in a home. Richard was always attentive to our familys needs and always accessible. Our three children just loved him! We would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

    • Gavin & Catherine Shanahan, Richard Bocchieri was extremely professional to work with and was intimately involved in our process of buying this home. Even though he worked, officially, as the seller's agent, he took a personal interest in our welfare by making sure all negotiations between the seller and us went smoothly. Mr. Bocchieri kept in frequent contact with us and responded to our inquiries promptly and thoroughly. By the end of this process, my husband and I feel as though we can still reach out Mr. Bocchieri with any questions that we still may have for he made a deliberate attempt to establish a personal connection with us throughout this entire journey. My husband and I are very thankful to have worked with such a respectable professional.(Zillow March 10th 2019)

He was nothing but accommodating, professional and extremely helpful. He treated us so well it was an absolute a joy to work with Rich. he makes you fell like you are working with a family member.

    • "Richie, we want to thank you for all your help getting Keith's house sold. We know it must have been difficult under the circumstances. Go out and have a nice dinner with Lillian". Love, Kathy and Phil, (February 20th 2017)

    • "After 38 years in my home it was time to move forward. This was not an easy decision. From the first call Richard was always easy to speak with, and he understood how hard the decision was for me to sell the home I loved. Refereed by a friend who had used his services and by a family member who works in real estate, Richard's reputation preceded him. Richard was always willing to help any way he could; always returned call immediately, always willing to speak and explain any questions I had to put my mind at ease. He professionally managed the open houses, and handled any and all inquiries about my home with buyers, realtors, contractors etc. Always saying to me, don't worry I will care of this for you or I will be at the home and take care of the issue for you - never hesitated. Because of his expertise my home sold very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard to a family member, friend or use his services again in the future. Thank you!
