He also understands the importance of a good old-fashioned handshake and delivering on his promises. Robert offers free legal consultations, free real estate listings and comps, and fast, free mortgage pre-approval letters.
Robert is both a REALTOR® and mortgage loan officer, so he likely has the edge over the competition when presenting his client’s offer to buy a home. In this market, being able to say that Robert is handling both the real estate transaction and the mortgage financing may instill confidence in a seller, thus increasing the chances that your offer will be accepted. Sellers often prefer to work with buyers that are pre-approved by a reputable local agent. Robert also works well with others, so if you prefer to use your current loan or real estate agent he can still get the job done. If you have ever been under-whelmed by the services provided by another agent, please give Robert the opportunity to earn your business.
Robert is both a commercial and residential real estate broker, which means he can also use his experience as an entrepreneur to help you broker the sale or purchase of a business. He has opened and sold his own businesses, so he brings real world experience and sage advice to the process. One of Robert’s passions is marketing and advertising, and it shows in the way he lists business and properties. He doesn’t just sell your property; he actually markets the listing with aggressive online marketing techniques to create high exposure and demand.
