"Rob Yoshimura Thank you again for all the hard work that you did over a period of years to make this happen. not just when we asked you to list. You have really shown me the difference between what a regular real estate agent really does and what Robert Yoshimura does. Two properties sold in this building both had about a week on the market and sold for above expected prices. For me Robert Yoshimura re-defines the term “real estate agent.” I can not put all of the things in writing that you did but I’ll list a few. - Helped us over the years with home improvements - Provided investment worthy upgrades and modern design concepts we never would have thought of (I wouldn’t have recognized this picture as my own property) - extremely responsive and dedicated. Went way out of your way countless times for us. Robert Yoshimura has a great deal of his own “elbow grease” in this sale, not just the property! 3 offers in 7 days during a pandemic. Enough said. I will miss this building and my friends and neighbors there but since I’m still in Chicago we will be continuing with Robert Yoshimura for years to come and that is a 100% guarantee. "
"I cannot say enough about the extent to which Robert went above and beyond to make my dream home a reality. As a first-time home buyer, I had a list of "must-have" criteria, but I needed a knowledgeable agent's guidance to take that criteria and point me in the direction of a property that fulfilled my requirements better than those I was finding on my own. Within a very short amount of time, Robert asked the most pertinent questions and zeroed in on a property that perfectly fit my aesthetic and needs. He utilized his connections to secure a showing, provided valuable advice during the offer stage, and effectively advocated on my behalf during the subsequent negotiations. Were it not for Robert, I am completely confident that I would not have been able to close on this property that I am now so excited and proud to call my own. Not only was Robert extremely skilled in his role as my agent/representative, but he connected me to several resources who also provided valuable guidance in other facets of the process, thereby creating a network for me to draw upon. Far from someone to just accompany me to showings and ask me what I wanted to do, Robert truly embodied a comprehensive, end-to-end approach to home-buying. I saw a grand total of 4 properties, with the third being the ultimate winner, and the showing-to-closing window spanned just 40 days. This would not have been possible without the "network" all pulling in the same direction, and is a characteristic of an ultimately highly-successful strategy for which the inherent value cannot be underestimated. I will be strongly recommending Robert to any and all Chicagoans looking to buy or sell a property of their own. When my family and friends look at my new home and say "That place is so 'you!'" I'm so thankful for what Robert did to identify it and help ensure that it became mine. "
"My fiance and I are first time buyers, and as such, we started the process with nothing more than what we could find on the internet. Robert is not only knowledgeable in the process, he is also very knowledgeable in the South Loop neighborhood. He pointed out several insider knowledge/tips that waved several of our doubts or concerns in several properties. He also remembers what we want in the property and does preliminary search and only shown us valid selections that could be our potential future homes. My fiance and I, to be honest, can be very demanding in what we wants, but Robert has been nothing short of amazing and patient with us throughout the entire journey. I highly recommend him and his service for all future real estate endeavors."
"I noticed that Robert was a lot of properties that I was interested in and he had remarkable reviews on Zillow so I decided to contact him one day and, to my surprise, he reached out to me right away. Come a couple months later, here I am writing a review - who would have thought! I'm not usually one to write reviews, but I had to because Robert has been nothing but amazing throughout my first home-buying experience. He stayed true to his responsiveness throughout the whole process of buying a home to even after closing. Robert is very knowledgeable and thorough in what he does. Throughout each walkthrough he educated me on things to look for when looking at a property and was cognizant of my best interests. I was able to close in 27 days without any bumps due to him overseeing and orchestrating everything to a seamless close. He helped me formulate and negotiate a competitive offer in a hot market and I was able to get my offer accepted within 3 days of the property getting . I cannot thank Robert enough for his patience, the education he provided, and the people he connected me with. Most importantly, he helped me find a place that I am happy to call 'home.' I would recommend him time and time again to friends and family. If you are looking to buy or sell a place, I would not hesitate to reach out to him!"
"Being a first time home buyer, I have to count my blessings that I was referred to Robert as my realtor. He made the process easy and enjoyable. I was extremely nervous for the process but Robert's level of patience and willingness to educate made it so I felt 110% comfortable with my decision. I was even looking at different areas in the city and he spent the time to show me the different areas and go over pros/cons of each area! Robert was able to get me with a lender that I felt comfortable with, a Real Estate Attorney that made the process easy and even a plumber after I purchased the place. I have already referred him to a friend to use and he has already assisted that friend in purchasing their first place! I would highly recommend using Robert and will continue to use Robert in any home purchases/sales in the future. I actually will miss working with him as he made the process fun and very rewarding."
