Faces of AMRE: Stephen Bogart

    Adam Merrick is excited to announce, Stephen Bogart as Adam Merrick’s Real Estate’s Ryan Closen Culture Award winner for May 2018.  Stephen is a Listing Specialist here at AMRE and is an accurate example of everything this award stands for.  The Ryan Closen Culture Award is given to the team member who has shown exemplary team culture by putting the team and our clients’ interests above his own.

    Stephen’s initial interest in real estate came from loving architecture but the ability to help people is what has made him truly passionate about being a real estate professional.  “I love helping people with one of the most important decisions in their family’s lives.  A home is the place where we raise our children and spend time with the people that are most important to us and I strive to provide guidance for my clients throughout that sometimes complicated process.”

    Stephen joined the Adam Merrick Team in August 2017, when he and his wife Renee and their two children relocated from St. Louis to Peoria to be near family.  Stephen did plenty of research about the area when making the decision to move to Peoria because he knew that he wanted to align himself with a successful real estate brokerage who he felt held the similar values to his and would provide the most opportunity for him to help people. “Not only was AMRE statistically the most successfulI, but the great reviews were consistent.” Upon joining the AMRE Team, Stephen was pleasantly surprised with this team and the way they interact with one another. “Hearing about good culture and seeing it, are two different things.  Once I realized how the AMRE Team truly cares about each other, I knew this was the place for me.”

    Outside of work, Stephen loves the outdoors and enjoys hiking, fishing and camping.  Stephen and his family attend a local church and loves doing things for his neighbors and helping people in need.  Whether just watching a movie or having a family BBQ, Stephen’s favorite way to spend time is with those that he loves and he credits his parents as the source of his strong family ethic.  “My parents were always a great example to me of people who had a passion for what they did and for helping others. I would not be who I am today without them.”
    Stephen not only contributes to the culture of our Team by constantly displaying care and integrity to our Team, but everyone he comes into contact with.  Stephen has been consistently earning 5-Star reviews himself:

    “Very best in Peoria area! Stephen, from Adam Merrick Real Estate, helped us with expert advise, selling process, and the final close. We are thankful for his support and help.”

    We are grateful to have Stephen and his family in the AMRE Family and we look forward to celebrating his continued achievements and success in the future!
