Client Testimonials


"Robert is the consummate professional, and I would recommend him enthusiastically to anyone. Robert has a rare combination of client empathy, local knowledge, a gentle manner, and the ability to negotiate hard for his client. He is extremely responsive to all questions and concerns, and able to tap into his extensive network of experts on the many different topics relating to a transaction. Given the stressful nature of home buying, I can think of no better realtor to have as your partner than Robert. Robert has also been a terrific source of support and ongoing advice many months after we took possession of the house, remaining as responsive as he was now, as he was during the transaction - a true sign of his professionalism."

"We have bought and sold eight homes to-date and can honestly say Robert has been the best agent to work with in all of our transactions. In our current purchase Robert was always available to get us answers on questions, at all scheduled inspections and walk-through. Robert was on top of every step of the purchase process and made everything easy and seamless. I would highly recommend using Robert for either listing your home for sale or as an agent to find you your next home."

"I knew I wanted Robert to be our agent after our first phone conversation. As a sales agent myself I am quite attentive to the demeanor and style of people I seek out to represent me and my family. He was just perfect! He introduced us to new neighborhoods, was readily available to show places around our schedule, answered our calls and texts in moments, and when the time came he negotiated for and found us just the right home. He is warm and sweet and very sincere. There is no pressure, no fast-talk, no slick. He is the real deal".
