Agent Spotlight: The Bohman Hartung Group

In January 2023, Jack Bohman, Sally Bohman, and Joe Hartung joined forces to become the Bohman Hartung Group. After a year and a half, the group has already accomplished much and celebrated many wins. Read to learn about their successes and how they got here.

Congratulations on over one year as The Bohman Hartung Group! What have been your biggest takeaways and lessons learned? 

Jack Bohman: Finishing the year as the number one team in total dollar volume for all of Cape Cod for 2023 exceeded our expectations. It became evident as the year progressed how much better we could serve our clients as three people working as a team rather than as individuals. The beauty is that we know the best is yet to come! 
One of our most important strengths is that we all grew up on Cape Cod. Each of us has traveled far and wide, but we all decided to raise our families locally. Sally and I are year-round Chatham residents while Joe and his wife Bonnie are year-round Orleans residents. We know these Lower Cape towns like the back of our hands, but our expertise isn’t limited to just one or two towns. Rather, we have clients from Osterville to Wellfleet and I think they appreciate the depth and breadth of our familiarity with all these communities and the neighborhoods that comprise them. 


Why did you join to become The Bohman Hartung Group and where did this business relationship start? 

Jack Bohman: Sally and I had been keeping our eye out for a few years looking for a partner to join us to round out our business and help us expand our coverage. Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty thought so highly of Joe that they hired him to onboard and mentor our new agents and we were well aware of that. When we approached Joe and shared our short and long-term goals he jumped at the opportunity. We are thrilled that he did. 
Joe Hartung: I had been looking to expand my business into a team atmosphere for a year or so. When the idea of partnering with Jack & Sally was suggested I knew we’d be great together. 


You've had a lot to celebrate, have there been any moments you are especially proud of? 

Jack Bohman: Professionally I’m proud that we were able to help over two dozen clients with their real estate needs.  Not every buyer or seller is the same, and we take a bespoke approach to each client. We have all traveled this year and the team approach has kept the business running seamlessly.


What do you love most about your roles as real estate advisors? 

Jack Bohman: I come from a long line of stubborn and independent-thinking Scots. Advocating for our clients, whether buyers or sellers, is the most rewarding part of our jobs. Trust is everything in our business and I believe our clients can readily tell from the outset that we have their best interests at heart. There are always a few tough moments in every transaction and I like to think we have the seasoning and composure to sail through any squalls that rise over the horizon. There is nothing more rewarding than running into a client years later and hearing how thrilled they continue to be with our time together. 


What are some of your favorite local hobbies, activities, or organizations that you participate in?

Jack Bohman: Besides raising our children, we all do our best to give back to the community. I served on the Chatham Anglers board for 11 seasons, and we hosted Cape Cod League Baseball League players. I have also served on the town of Chatham Economic Development Committee. My passion is golf and I continue to compete regionally in tournaments. Sally loves tennis and paddle tennis and serves on the First Night Committee

Joe works to support his travel habits.  He and his wife Bonnie love introducing new cultures to their two young daughters. Seasonally, the “home office” is on their pontoon boat in Town Cove in Orleans. So many of our clients move here to be close to water and we are no exception. Any day on the water is a good day! Joe served the Orleans Chamber of Commerce as a director for nine years. He has been elected to the Town of Orleans Board of Health for the past 10 years and is currently the chair.


What do you love most about where you live and work? Any favorite spots in the Chatham area or Cape Cod

Jack Bohman: The best way to see and experience Cape Cod is on the water thus we are all boaters. All of us love Pleasant Bay, the Outer Beach, and Nantucket Sound and if the weather is nice on any given Sunday, the odds are one or all of us will be out on the Bay with family and friends. 
There is a wonderful seasonality to life on Cape Cod and we embrace all four seasons. Winters can be long, but they prove a great opportunity to recharge one’s batteries, reset your goals and plan of attack for the year, or take a trip or two. The downtime is wonderful because once the late spring arrives, there is little let-up in our schedules. We are blessed to have a great mix of year-round and summer friends. 
Joe Hartung: The Outer Beach, whether driving south from the Nauset parking lot or boating to the Spit, on the water and sand is where I want to be. The off-season, despite the weather, is just as wonderful as Summer. I love nothing more than being a part of a small town. Anywhere you go in town, you recognize your friends and neighbors. That goes right back to what and why we sell real estate.  We’re sharing our love of Cape Cod with everyone we come across. 


What are three sources of joy in your week? 

Jack Bohman: The life of a realtor can be kind of like a lone wolf at times, but with the three of us, there is a lot of support, camaraderie, and joy to be working as teammates for a common goal. We are also blessed that Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty has great owners setting the tone, phenomenal staff supporting our every effort, and a highly respected team of agents throughout all our offices. We really couldn’t be with a better organization.
Joe Hartung: In season, my biggest joy is spending time on the water with my family.  No matter the weather, driving past Pleasant Bay on Route 28 always puts a smile on my face. High tide, low tide, stormy or calm, the view never gets old.
