Jonathan Barach

As many of us know, today’s real estate market is truly unlike any other. From the suburbs to Center City, buyers and sellers are navigating historically volatile markets that have presented both challenges and opportunities.  There’s a lot that you can do to make the most of today’s market, including working with a team that will represent you to the fullest extent. Whether purchasing your first home, relocating to the area, or looking to sell your residence, there are many advantages of working with our skilled group of real estate professionals.

Experience Overview

After collaborating on several deals, co-founders Jonathan Barach and Christine Bonano quickly realized that they worked better together. In 2011, the duo was inspired to start their own team, The Barach Group, and even welcomed a third member, Lauren Pilla, that same year.
Since its establishment, the team has been awarded with numerous honors and accolades. From being recognized as Best Realtor in Philadelphia magazine’s “Best of Philly” 2011 to winning Top Producer in 2019 and 2022, the group has attributed much of their success to their bold approach, positive outlook, and endless determination. Additionally, The Barach Group has closed more than $300 million in transactions to date and offers over 38 years of combined experience in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Compass Private Exclusive

Combine The Barach Group’s years of invaluable experience with the resources offered at Compass and you’ll end up with a recipe for prosperity. One of the team’s favorite Compass offerings is the Private Exclusive program. With Compass Private Exclusive, buyers and sellers have access to hundreds of homes listed off of the market by other Compass agents. This extensive database of off market homes is only available to clients of Compass agents.
Why does this matter to you? If you’re looking to purchase, you’ll have a first look at properties that other consumers don’t know about. Not only can the team customize a collection of off-market properties that meets your needs, but you can see homes in-person that haven’t been disseminated widely online. Moreover, if you’re thinking about listing your home for sale, you’ll be able to control what information is shared about your home while still getting exposure to other agents.

A Proven Path to Success

Working with The Barach Group means that you have a dedicated team of agents behind you throughout the entire home buying process. If you’re thinking of buying, here’s exactly what you can expect when working with The Barach Group.
1. One on One Consultation: This meeting is the perfect opportunity to discuss the home buying process, set expectations, and familiarize yourself with timelines.
2. Mortgage Pre Approval: The Barach Group offers a vast referral service of local lenders to help facilitate loan pre approvals. In this market, pre approval with well-known and local lenders typically provides a competitive edge.
3. Complete A Personalized Questionnaire: Your answers will be used to set up a “collection” of listings based on your needs and preferences. This interactive portal allows for easy communication between the buyer and agent, and also features off-market listings thanks to the Compass Private Exclusive program.
4. Referral Services: When it comes to facilitating the settlement of your next home, the team’s preference of home inspectors and title companies will help ensure a smooth process from start to end.
