About Robert

Robert has over 15 years of real estate experience and has been a consistent top producer since joining Hill & Co. in 2001, prior to Compass. His strong negotiating skills, attention to detail, and customer service have enabled him to build a successful business, based on referrals from satisfied clients.

You simply won’t find a nicer guy. But make no mistake, he spent a number of years in commercial real estate, so he’s quite comfortable and adept at representing clients on either side of table – whether buyers or sellers – at every price point imaginable.

Robert takes pride in being a different kind of REALTOR®. He prefers to be consultative in his approach, and he refuses to put on airs. He explains the buying and selling process in a straightforward, comprehensible way. He knows the market, city neighborhoods and home values, and on behalf of his clients he can formulate winning strategies and recommendations accordingly.

A member of NAR and SFAR, Robert lives in San Francisco with his wife Kirsten and daughters Kit and Jane. In his spare time he likes to compete in Amateur Golf Tournaments.


“If you're looking for a responsive, friendly, and diligent Real Estate Agent to help you buy or sell a home in San Francisco, Bob is definitely the right person for you. I'm typically wary of Real Estate agents but Bob has consistently exceeded my expectations each and every time. I've used Bob to buy a home in Noe Valley and to sell a home. On both sides of the transaction, I could not have asked for a better agent than Bob. I've worked with 3 agents before and what sets Bob apart is his love for Real Estate, his amazing personality, and his desire to go the extra mile for you. Bob works aggressively to look at properties right when they hit the market for you. I was constantly impressed by his willingness to see properties well in advance of when I would have a chance to go by. I've known 4 other people who have used Bob in the past and their first reaction is: "I can't believe how friendly and affable of a guy he is." Considering that you will spend maybe 3-6 months with your Real Estate agent on your project, this is more important that you can imagine. Lastly, I think it spoke volumes that Bob did several things that went the extra mile when I sold my property. Even after I moved out, he proactively hired cleaners (on his own dime) to clean the property so that the buyers wouldn't receive my home in amazing condition. This isn't something I expected but just goes to show how much he goes the extra mile. You will not be disappointed if you go with Bob as your Real Estate Agent.”
