Let's make your real estate transaction a great one!
The difference between a great real estate experience and a poor experience has much to do with the real estate agent you choose. Be sure to get the best agent with the best process and experience as a professional negotiator. With a deep set of expert level skills and hundreds of transactions negotiated for clients, I'll make your real estate sale or purchase an easy and efficient process.
I'll coordinate all aspects of the real estate transaction for you, so there aren't any problems or stress points that keep you up at night. My process of buying or selling is much less stressful than what buyers and sellers typically experience using a less organized processes or inexperienced agents. I'll truly listen to your needs and wants in order to gain a solid understanding of your overall goals. I'll always treat you with the respect you deserve. The more we work together and the better I get to know you and your needs, the better I'll be as your real estate broker.
A real estate transaction is an expensive and emotional process for both buyers and sellers. I'll help you protect your money and connect you with excellent referrals for all of your needs both during and after your transaction closes. I incorporate team building, exceptional client communication and management of the process based on old fashioned values of honesty, trust and hard work. You get a complete "turn-key" approach to comprehensively address your needs, often exceeding your initial expectations.

"Bob is an honest, straightforward advocate for his clients who simplifies the process of buying or selling a home. He understands the emotional impact of either process, but also provides a calm reminder of the financial goals inherent in the transaction. I have had the opportunity to refer a number of my estate planning and probate clients to Bob and have received consistently positive and enthusiastic feedback from those clients." - Jenn T.
Renting vs. Buying
I've helped thousands of people with making important decisions about buying, selling or renting real estate. It's important to me to help my clients get the best approach to enjoying their real estate, lifestyle, community and surroundings. I've helped clients with renting decisions as they relocate into a new community as well as buying and selling when they want more permanent housing, while building and controlling their equity and investment.
If you're considering a move, let's have a free consultation and discuss all of your real estate options that affect your cash flow, monthly budgets, housing needs and both your short term and long term real estate goals. Ultimately, you want to make a decision that is financially sensible and makes you happy; with our level of real estate experience, we can get you there. Below is a short interview that discusses the recent trend away from renting and back into homeownership. With rents increasing and mortgage interest rates still low (from a historical perspective), we're seeing the shift back to homeownership from renting, especially by first time homebuyers. An if you are a first time buyer, we have amazing financing and buying plans tailored especially to save you time and money!
