In 2005, co-founders Joseph Chaplik and Bernard Gehret saw a void in the apartment market for a quality, service-oriented brokerage firm and knew they could fulfill that need. Joseph Bernard Investment Real Estate was formed on the foundation to provide outstanding real estate brokerage through high quality professionalism, integrity, and service.

"Tenacity...After about 2 years of looking...and Phil never gave up. The entire team is top notch."
"I have done multiple transactions with them and they have always served my best interest with integrity, honesty and the proper expectations."
"You guys did an outstanding job representing the buyer and seller. Remarkable patience on our broker's part as the seller was not very flexible. We were able to keep the big picture in mind during negotiations."
"Simply stated, this was my best transaction to date! Very professional, extremely diligent, timely communication. Great work!"
"Evan's good communication, hard work, and straightforward style made for a positive experience."
"It was great doing business with you guys and I look forward to our next real estate deal together. Thanks for your help."
"I wish [you] could buy all of [your] properties from Phil Barry....[he] just seems exceptional! He always calls and lets me know what's going on during the whole process...working with other agents makes me realize how stellar he is."
"In retrospect, I cannot recall a higher level of customer service, in any profession or service, which exceeded that of Joseph Chaplik and his company."
"I enjoyed working with you guys-thanks for everything you did! The new place is working well."
"If I can come up with a "qualified" buyer, I'll be sure to send them your way!"

"Phil is exceptional in all aspects of his job. Thanks so much for making these last two years fruitful."
"Fantastic process; would use again."
"If you are considering using Joseph Bernard Investment Real Estate Company, I would highly recommend doing so; the overall customer service was superior."
Bernie had a broad area of connections and the wit to use them well. Thank you!
"It was nice having Joseph Bernard as both buying and selling broker since this was owner financed."
"Bernie was instrumental in convincing the seller to carry back a second Trust Deed. Without that concession, in a competitive offer scenario, I wouldn't have been able to acquire this property. Great work!"
"Especially towards the end of the transaction Joe's tenaciousness and communication with all parties helped to finally secure a closing. Joe, we really appreciate your extra efforts which were instrumental in bringing together those that were less than professional. Thank you for making this transaction a success!"
"Bernie, you are terrific! Thank you for patiently guiding us through the Portland market, finding us a great property that wasn't even on the market and helping us close it out. We couldn't have done it without you!"
"I thought Joe and his company were superior in every way. Excellent transaction, superior communication and customer service throughout."
"I'm very glad this unit sold and that I went with Joseph Bernard. I think the most important decision was the first one."
"Thanks to Bernie for patience and persistence through a long public purchase process!"
"You all did a great job! Thanks."
"Joseph Bernard, LLC has my business long-term, as I see them as the only group I would work with that focuses on a long-term relationship and not a 'one sale' deal."
