SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
My spouse and I have known Robert for 6 years...
He sold our home and found our new one. Robert always has gone above and beyond the normal Real Estate Brokers Realm. Not only have we found someone who is professional, reliable and trustworthy, but also very transparent. We always knew what the process was, and where we stood time wise which made the whole buying/selling process much less stressful. Even though we are not currently searching for a new house, to this day Robert is available to answer questions and assist with any documentation we may need. So, in short; if we ever need a Real Estate Agent in the future, we know who we would like to represent us, Robert without a doubt! I highly recommend his services.
I had a great time working with Robert...
to buy my first home in California. He was always available to answer my questions and always responded quickly. He worked hard for me and helped me get the home I wanted. I would recommend Robert to anyone looking to buy a home on the Central Coast!
Robert is the consummate professional.
He handled the sale of our home seamlessly and kept us informed of every step of the process. He puts his heart into his Clients best interest and made these the easiest transaction for us. If you are looking for a hard working Realtor, Rob should be your top pick!
I had a wonderful experience working with Robert.
I was nervous buying my first home, but he walked me through the process and answered my questions every step of the way! He always had my best interests in mind. He works very hard and is quick to respond. I would feel completely confident and comfortable in recommending him to anyone. Robert knows property and he knows the Market, which makes a happy you!
Robert not only helped me buy a new ranch, he also helped sell one!
Someday soon, I have another ranch for him to sell. He is extraordinary Realtor! He is extremely thorough, even tempered and a superb negotiator. I would highly recommend him to anyone, as I regularly do. He is always one step ahead of the game. He is very organized and reliable. He really knows how to deal with all types of people, even the difficult ones (as you frequently encounter), during the whole process of buying and selling real estate. He really loves what he does for a living and it really shows!
Let me start by saying, I live 4 hours away from the home Robert sold for me...
We did correspondence through phone calls, emails and faxes. The process started in the middle of March and our house was sold the middle of June. We got the price we wanted and the process was smooth and efficient. I want to thank you so very much Robert for your dedication to detail and the highest level of service I have ever received from a Realtor. Thank you again and it was a pleasure to finally meet you just before closing. Good luck in all your future endeavors for future sales.
So happy that Rob helped us find our next home!
We started the process knowing we wanted a 4 bedroom home and more land, but were otherwise uncertain of exactly what we wanted. Rob patiently answered our many MANY questions, laughed with us, and views many properties with us — even when we wanted to see more houses in the middle of escrow. We are absolutely delighted with how smoothly our transaction went, despite the challenges of buying a fixer upper (lots of construction quotes were required). Rob is quick to respond to messages, keeps things on track, and above all, seems the satisfaction of his customers. He also gave us great referrals to his network of all sorts of tradespeople for the many improvements being made on our new home. Rob is the total package — easy to talk to, happy to help, honest, experienced, and effective. I look forward to the next time we work together!
Robert has been our agent for two different transactions.
He is without a doubt tops in his field. His vast knowledge of the real estate market is only rivaled by his emphasis on customer service. From the very beginning he makes you feel important. He listens to your needs, gives his recommendations and provides clear guidance every step of the way. He is honest, hardworking, dependable and makes a normally stressful process seem effortless. He knows his stuff and will always go the extra mile for you. Look no further, you have found the man for the job!
He goes above and beyond...
to make sure every aspect of a real estate transaction progresses as smoothly as possible. Robert listened to everything we had to say and really took the time to understand what we were looking for. We found our dream home the day it went on the Market and were so disappointed to hear that the owners were going to to wait a week before they started showing it. Knowing us as well as he did, Robert was able to speak to the listing agent and communicate all the ways that he thought we would be great buyers for the property. An hour later, the owners called and invited us to see it! We were amazed and I still cannot believe how lucky we are to be living in our dream home. Robert seriously wants the best for his Clients and won’t hesitate to go to bat for them. You could not do any better than to give him a call. THANK YOU, ROBERT!!!
If you're looking for a top notch real estate professional, look no further!
I have been involved in at least 5 real estate transactions in the last decade and Robert is far and away the best agent we have worked with in our various transaction. He is hard working, connected, timely, engaging and on point with identifying your needs and getting all the small details just right. This is exactly the person you want in your corner whether you are buying or selling. Plus, he’s just a fun guys to work with and keeps things light and enjoyable, even when you are deep in a transaction. If you are using these reviews to pick out top real estate counsel, congratulations…you’ve found the best one!
I'm a fellow Real Estate Agent in Northern California so...
I expected a lot! First thing was the return phone call just a short time after leaving a message, this is important when hiring an agent. He was very professional and said he would go to the property that I wanted to list and complete a market analysis for me. The CMA came back very fast and was very detailed. He explained the Market in the Paso area because he knows it so well. I listed with him and he was able to sell a, not so pretty house, in a realistic time period. I was very fortunate to find Robert and you will not be disappointed to hire him to buy or sell. He is a VERY competent Realtor that takes his job very serious. Great guy!
Robert has been instrumental in finding us investment properties.
He is knowledgeable but yet very humble. We trust Robert a lot. He is an exceptionally wonderful broker who would help you in finding your dream properties like he did for us.
Very astute in recognizing our needs and wishes.
Robert suggested which would be the best bid and were were able to follow through with that 1st offer and the house was sold – awesome!
Robert is a very gifted and knowledgeable Realtor.
My husband Mike highly recommends him and encourages anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in his area to give him a call. Robert was very organized and understood the market and what was the best way to get the most money for the sale of my father’s home. Very prompt on calls and every aspect of the sale. Great & speedy job.
Robert was extremely professional and attentive...

Once again, Robert, we thank you
Once again, Robert, we thank you for the smooth process you facilitated with our recent sale in San Luis Obispo County. The showing of our home was professionally managed and we experienced minimum disruption owing to the timely sale. We had confidence in your management of every part of this process and appreciated your experience and unflappable handling of every issue. The document process was well explained and we valued that most documents were easily managed over the Internet, but also that you were fully available to us by phone. Should we need a Realtor in your area on a future occasion, you would be our first call.
