About Harold (Buddy) Pope
I am a full time, experienced Real Estate agent based in Bedford, New Hampshire. Of course,
using a NH native of 59 years with vast LOCAL and overall New Hampshire knowledge is to your benefit. My clients learn from my intimate knowledge of Southern NH and my computer guided sales and marketing approach... I can serve as your hands-on guide as you consider your next buying or selling experience in this southern-most portion of our gorgeous state, from the Merrimack to the Connecticut rivers.
For sellers: Page one of Google is the challenge and I have met that challenge. Additionally, I insist on full-length video and professional photography for all of my listings. Let me give you a personal demo of what we do here at the BEAN GROUP. Real Estate marketing isn’t what it used to be!
For Buyers: Want the inside scoop on the difference between (say) Amherst and Peterborough, NH or need to know if Keene NH would work for your needs? Call me! Please read my testimonials at http://www.thepopesaysrealty.com/testimonials/.
I work primarily with discriminating buyers and sellers of prestigious homes and those seeking country & equine homes. I once renovated a 1790's farmhouse and created an authentic early American Colonial living experience by renting the home as a vacation rental property, attracting customers the world over. I bring that same marketing experience and computer savvy to my present day position when marketing your home. No agent covers the internet at the level I do. Add to that the BEAN GROUP's internet muscle and you have branding 2 ways!
My education is one thing that I value dearly- I majored in Mathematics and then obtained a Master's in Computer Science, all prior to becoming a Real Estate sales agent in 2002. I have been the recipient of an International Sterling Society Award and a Director’s Award for superior sales achievement. The majority of my clients come from out of state on both the buying and selling sides!
Finally, I believe strongly in outreach to help one’s neighbors here and across the globe and have recently been appointed to the Development Committee of Sustainable Harvest International (www.sustainableharvest.org), a non-profit organization working across several Central American Countries to stop slash and burn farming techniques, replant deforested mountainsides and help local farmers develop sustainable organic farming techniques while creating markets for their produce. Want to get involved? Call me and I will tell you how. Eco-tourism trips are available through SHI.
