"As an attorney who specializes in real estate litigation, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most qualified real estate brokers in Southern California. Given that experience, my expectations of what a real estate broker should be able to accomplish are high. I am pleased to be able to thank you for exceeding my expectations of what I thought could be accomplished in selling the Softwind property and purchasing the Santa Bella Property."
W.M. Lines

"You did it again!! This is now the second property in the South Bay you have sold for us during the last two years, both with excellent results. Once again I must emphasize that we will not hesitate to recommend you as the "The Best Realtor" in the area!"
James Ryan

"Leslie and I would like to thank you for the outstanding effort and success in selling our home. Your experience, professionalism, reputation, knowledge of the Palos Verdes market and hard work smoothed the complex relocation transaction and eased the emotional experience of leaving Palos Verdes Estates."
Leslie and Richard Busch

"It was your years of experience and marketing expertise that made the sale of our existing home and purchase of our new home an easy move. From our past experience in the purchase and sale of various properties, we found your service to be SUPERIOR! You were able to sell our property within three weeks of listing, while we observed other properties in the neighborhood remain unsold for months. We must conclude the difference was your experience."
Bill and Laura Wratschko

"This letter is written to express my wholehearted appreciation for assisting our family relocate to the Palos Verdes area.

"Teri and I want to thank you for the hard work and excellent representation during both the sale of our existing home and the subsequent purchase of our new home. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the entire process and, most importantly, the results! Moving is always a "significant emotional event" and we appreciate your helping to make the experience a very positive one. Thank you".
Tim and Teri Farno

"I am writing to commend you for the assistance you provided Anne and me in the recent purchase of our residence in Palos Verdes Estates. Your background, experience, and professionalism facilitated the process a great deal. As an attorney, I was particularly impressed with your attention to detail and knowledge of the various factors to be considered in finalizing the sales contract".
Larry Rissler

"In February, 1997, I relocated to Calif. to take a new job. Upon arriving, I was immediately referred to you by an associate whom you had previously represented. Over the next four months, you made arrangements to show me approx. seventy-five homes in the Palos Verdes area where one was ultimately located and purchased. Throughout that period of time as well as subsequent to this purchase your high degree of professionalism and competence remained obvious".
James Wells

"Thank you for your assistance in the recent sale and purchase of residential properties for our company. You personally handled the sale of our company owned home as well as the purchase of a new residence for our company president. Your expert knowledge of the Palos Verdes real estate market and considerable experience in the buying and selling process were essential to the successful completion of the transactions."
Mark Jonas V.P. Denso Sales of California, Inc.

"I just wanted to send this note to thank you for all your help when you represented Patti and I in the purchase of our new home on Via Cardelina. I really enjoyed working with you and your calm, professional manner. It was very helpful in keeping the stress of the transaction to a minimum. Please also send my thanks to Mimi for her hard work in getting the financing. I have financed other homes before through mortgage brokers, and my experience with Mimi was by far the most pleasant mortgage transaction of all".
Barry MacNaughton

"Thank you for the fine job you did for us in the sales of our 1.5+ million dollar home. Selling our property quickly, before it even got in the multiple listings book, certainly made this a painless experience."
Spencer Ballard

“With respect to selling our home in Torrance, you gave us all the right guidance that was beneficial in having a successful sale. You had a defiant strategy, a rare trait, your planning was meticulous and you closely monitored everything. We were amazed to find you personally out on site supervising the trades and inspectors necessary to comply with the sale. As this directly resulted in a sale well above market price and way ahead of the normal 30 day escrow close period.”
Philip & Bernadine DeSouza

“I know that without your diligent monitoring, professional counsel, and guidance to the less experienced other parties, the timely closing could not have occurred. Without question, the level of professional service you provided far surpassed that of any in my past experiences with real estate transactions.”
Donald A. McCallum

“As a former commercial real estate broker, I found your experience and knowledge to be held in the highest regard. You identified our specific needs and requirements to make our house search very efficient. With the education you provided us, we had a very clear understanding of the market and a high level of confidence to procure our new residence in a difficult and changing environment. Your background in business; as a general contractor; and commercial and residential real estate was invaluable. You and Mimi managed the transaction very smoothly and your attention to detail was impeccable.”
Matt Takahashi

“When my husband and I first started selling our house By-Owner, you were one of the few agents that showed our home and expressed a concern for us and tried to give us suggestions along the way. We had many realtors who wanted our listing. Several had wonderful presentation, but we decided on you because not only was your presentation professional, but we felt you had our best interest at heart and would represent us the best. It was the best decision we had made.”
Catherine Hatch

“After being ‘slammed’ by another residential real estate agent recently, I appreciated your consultative approach. Your strategic advice on telling us exactly what we should pay for the home, and the best strategy for achieving that price, helped take the emotion out of it for us. I think the best part was that when we made the decision to lease rather than buy, you did not get discouraged. In fact, within hours after our lease house came up in the computer, you were on the phone to us in arranging a time for u s to see the home. This helped us ‘beat the rush’ and lease the house first.”
Stanley W. Gerlach Jr.

“Thank you for helping us complete our 1031 exchange that resulted in the purchase of two beautiful homes. We were really impressed with your dedication of time and energy in identifying the available properties that fit the needs of our transaction. We appreciated your researching the property profiles and the owners when we showed interest in certain properties. We were glad to have you on our side, negotiating our deals.”
Hideo Kikumoto

“We had done a lot of homework before selecting Realtors, in fact we already had two estimates from other Realtors by the time you saw our house. Basically we were happy with those estimates. Why then did we choose you to represent us? Because you gave us a true evaluation for the property with recognizing over all features instead of simply going by squarer footage and market trend in the area which other Realtors did exactly that. We were not necessarily looking for a highest bidder to represent us but your suggested selling price happened to be the highest one among all three estimated and made most sense to us. Now, what made us amazing what that you sold the house in just 7 days with the highest price in our neighborhood!! During the course of sales transaction, you took care of so many things for us by going beyond call of your duty which helped us tremendously as both my wife and I work.”
Yusuke Ikegami

“After going through two different agents that failed to even return phone calls, your professional upbeat approach was more than refreshing. While the property was not an easy sell by any stretch, your knowledge of mixed-use property, as well as all facets of the real estate business, made our lives much easier.”
Lisa & Johnny Hodges

“I’m an engineer and a person who knows the importance of attending to the details. I was very impressed with the extent to which you go not to let any of the details of a real estate transaction be overlooked. Even after an agreement was signed between us and the seller, you were on top of situation to ensure that this transaction didn’t develop those often hard to prevent snags that can sometimes cause a deal to fall through. It is obvious that you’ve had much experience in this business. When so much money is at stake, I’d rather work with an agent of your experience, intelligence and hard working attention to the important details than any of the more typical agents that have been in the business a few years or on a part time basis or just don’t do all they can to get the best deal for their clients.”
Michael Schneider

“I have been in business for some 35 years now. Seldom do I meet a businessman as efficient, friendly and effective as Rob. Extending this assessment to the real estate community, I cannot think of anyone his equal. As a person, what Rob is all about is just the friendliest person you may want to know. His calm assured manner is refreshing. Just as important, he is compulsive in his follow up and manages to build comprehensively accurate assessment of his clients’ needs and situation, no matter how delicate, before presenting any deals. In short, he does his homework.”
