My family and I had to make a quick move due to an opportunity at work. My first connection with Nick was on a weekend. We called and Nick agreed to show us some pictures of homes in the area that might meet our interest. Right from the start Nick was very involved. We never even thought of going anywhere else to look for a home. Week in and week out we pestered Nick to show us around town looking for the perfect home. On the week that we finally found our home, Nick was obviously in a hurry but agreed to show us a home that had just came back on the market. He made all of the phone calls to the parties involved and had us in the home to view it within minutes. It happened to be love at first sight. Nick had made many suggestions to us during our quest but he knew as much as we did that this would be our home when we walked through the doors. Nick stayed in constant contact and hooked us up with bankers, inspectors and even arranged for the builder to meet with us. I wouldn’t just suggest that anyone use Nick, I would say that you are missing out if you do not use him for all of your realtor needs. If we ever have to move again and have to sell our home, Nick at Bosshardt Realty, or wherever he may be working at the time, will be our agent to sell the home.

We had a hard time getting our home sold with another real estate company. We contacted several real estate companies and requested interviews. We interviewed all of the agents and then met Nick…He was very knowledgeable and made us feel energized. He told us exactly what it would take to get our home sold…repairs, painting etc. We received an offer in 28 days. Nick helped us negotiate the offer and walked us thru the whole process from repairs, inspections to the final day of closing.

Nick is a great guy and a true professional.

Helped me buy a home
Nick understands matching a buyer with their specific needs/wants. He is quick to return calls & the consummate professional.


We had met Nick when he was our daughter and son-in-law’s real estate agent, and he did a great job helping them find their perfect home. When we decided to move to Gainesville, we contacted Nick to be our agent also. He showed me a few houses and was very honest pointing out the flaws in them. Then we went to a new development, and he and I were both impressed with the model home. He was always available to talk to me during the construction of our new house, or got right back to me if I emailed him with any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend using Nick as your real estate agent.


We chose to list our home with Nick Reed after meeting with him in person. Nick marketed our home, not just on the Bosshardt website, but on many other sites as well. He took great photos of our house and yard to inform potential buyers of the amenities, and helped us set a competitive price for the local market. We really appreciated how he kept us in the loop by phone and by email, even when we were on vacation. He was very easy to work with and addressed our concerns with optimism, honesty, and good ideas. We have already recommended to friends that they would be hardpressed to work with a more patient, positive, knowledgeable, and competent realtor than Nick Reed.

The 10 acre farm in Newberry was an estate sale. There was virtually no activity while the farm was listed with the 1st real estate company. Nick was highly recommended by another agent. He provided an honest and realistic evaluation of the house and farm. He coordinated the necessary repairs for me as I do not live in Gainesville. Everything was done promptly and reasonably. We finally received an offer and Nick patiently negotiated the sale price. He was extremely reliable and professional in every way. Nick kept me informed of the status of all inspections being made on the farm due to the type of loan. The closing was postponed several times do to an unforeseen easement matter. Nick remained in constant contact with the buyers realtor, our attorney and myself-and always remained a true professional thru the whole process. I would recommend Nick without hesitation.

Julie Hoar

I interviewed Nick several years ago and watched his performance closely prior to hiring him to sell my house.
He provided me with professional advice and realistic expectations. So far our relationship has been great. Some agents will tell you anything to list your house but disappear after it
