What our clients say

I was very anxious and concerned about the whole buying process. Bob made the process so easy. He was very informative and guided me step-by-step through the whole transaction. He was very patient and always made time for me when I wanted to see a property or had a question that needed answering. He was very friendly, professional and good humored. His experience showed, and I felt I was in very capable hands. I would recommend (and have recommended) Bob to all my friends and family.

Truly a stand out in the real estate community. Very professional and thorough. No "BS" with Bob; he's was on a mission to sell my house and did very quickly. He always carries a smile but most importantly he listens and executes to the best of his abilities. Of the many people I've met in real estate none measure up to Bob!

Bob is a super agent! You can really rely on Bob to not just sell you a home for the sake of selling a house but he genuinely has your best interest in mind. Bob has saved me from multiple money pits and future headache and made sure the home my family choose was just right for us and was also a great investment. Bob has so much experience and knowledge of homes that he would often point out things that my wife and I had no idea about. There was one house that my wife and I really liked that Bob could have easily sold us on but he noticed some defects before we even wasted money on an inspection that not only saved us money but headaches down the road. I truly couldn't ask for anything more from an agent and would gladly recommend him to anyone.

Bob short sold my house for me. He did an excellent job with the entire process. The contract fell through with the first buyers and I thought my house was going to foreclose. Bob was able to find another buyer and got the deal done just in time. Short sale was successful. I highly recommend his services.

We are a young military couple and didn't have a clue when it came to purchasing a first home. Bob answered all of our questions and found us a great place, in a great neighborhood for 100's less than we were planning on spending on rent. We even received a good size rebate at closing through the Military on the Move program he participates in! Our house buying experience was a great one! Thanks!
