"Rob was absolutely amazing! He was referred to us by close friends, who he helped find their first home a couple of years ago. They only had good things to say when they recommended him.
We originally reached out to Rob over a year before our purchase. Since it was our first home, we wanted to have a good idea of the market before we dove in. Rob was wonderful and happy to send us updates and housing listings to keep us up to date long before we were formally "on the market."
While we are forever grateful that he would provide such great service for "off the market" clients, it was when we were seriously ready to buy that the magic happened.
Rob showed us a large range of homes, taking care to ensure they had the characteristics we had outlined in our conversations. He was also more than willing to show us homes we had found in our own research online.
Ultimately, the home we purchased was one we thought we didn't like after viewing online photos, but Rob showed us the home and we fell in love.
The economy (Summer '10) is not exactly friendly to first-time buyers. The process was tiresome and frustrating, but Rob was there every step of the way. He kept up with the required updates to our purchase, stayed in touch with our broker, and most importantly: informed us of all the details in a manner that was understandable to us.
We would recommend Rob in a heartbeat, and he has been an asset in the process of purchasing our first home.
