My first career was in education, starting as a teacher then finishing as a guidance counselor and having achieved my Bachelors, Masters and two PDs. In 1986, I began my real estate career and joined Netter Real Estate in 2009. In a sense, I am still an educator and offering guidance; this time I am outside of the classroom educating my clients on the selling and purchasing transactions; which have become so complicated recently and guiding them safely through the confusing and ever-changing real estate market.

It is very satisfying to me to help people with not only the greatest financial asset in their lives, but their greatest social and emotional asset; where they celebrate holidays, raise their families and live their lives. I take the needs of my clients very seriously and as a result, I am proud to say, over 95% of my sales are the result of referrals and recommendations. Recently, I have made a commitment to support the local non-profit organization, Pronto. For every sales transaction, a portion of my commission will be donated to Pronto of Long Island, a nonprofit community outreach center who feed the hungry, clothe the needy and provide hope for our neighbors.

Primarily, my areas of service are the Townships of Babylon and Islip on Long Island’s beautiful South Shore, near pristine beaches and wonderful boating, yet only 55 minutes from Manhattan; truly the best of both worlds.

I'm a graduate of the Real Estate Institute and am certified as an Accredited Buyer Representative, ABR, as well as a Senior Real Estate Specialist. This designation has helped me to list and sell more efficiently condos in a 55+ community. I also hold a license as a Notary Public. Please feel free to call or visit so I can help you fulfill your real estate dreams.

What Clients Are Saying

“Your envelope of mail arrived today.  I cannot thank you and the buyer of 29 Primrose Lane enough for forwarding Barb’s mail.  We thought that we had taken care of all her affairs and will try to stop any additional mail coming to the condo.  Thank you for the photo album!  I cannot imagine where it was found, but it was a treasure and a gift that I will give to Barb when we come north to see her.

“Richie, you have been a joy!  I am very grateful that you were on our team to help Barb!!!!  If we are ever asked, YOU will be the realtor that I will highly recommend on Long Island.  We are in good health and hope the same for you.  It was a long winter, especially up north.  Barb is doing okay and seems happy, which is most important.

Thank you again very much, Richard.  You have gone above and beyond for us”!

"Richard did a great job in selling my home. He kept us informed all the time and I always felt he was working hard to get our house sold.

Thomas Schultz Richard was referred to us by one of our trusted friends and we now know why. My fiancé and I were buying out first home, which could seem like a big task, but Richard made it effortless. He was available anytime and quick to respond to our questions or concerns.

Christopher & Daniele Welner "We had the pleasure of meeting Richard Bocchieri at an open house a year and a half ago when our family first started looking at houses. From the moment we met him, we felt comfortable as if we knew him for years. His warmth and kindness were evident right away and we knew we had found someone we could trust. Richard helped our family find our dream home and we will forever be grateful to him for that. He was extremely knowledgeable and really understood what we were looking for in a home. Richard was always attentive to our family’s needs and always accessible. Our three children just loved him! We would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
