"Relationships, Knowledge and Personality"
"I first met Rob in 1996, when he represented the seller in a home I purchased in the Manhattan Beach hill section. I was impressed with his knowledge of the area, the fact that he had architectural training and not least his sense of humor.
I had been associated with my broker at the time for approximately 15 years. She was based in Palos Verdes, and although she was an excellent realtor, I felt that Rob’s knowledge of the beach cities was far superior.
Over the next few years, I called rob to get his opinion of the real estate market, and on many occasions, the economy in general. Because he had frequently listed his properties in the Beach Reporter, he was always top of mind, and many times triggered a curiosity in his listings and the local real estate market.
In 2002, we decided to sell our hill section home, and I felt no one would be able to meet (or exceed) my expectations except Rob. We wanted to finds an ocean view home, and the pickings were slim in our price range. We looked at a variety of town-homes, and were not thrilled. Rob listened to our problems with each one, and one day called to tell me there was the perfect one being built in Hermosa Beach. We took one look at this beautiful townhouse and were ready to pounce. We put in an offer that day, contingent on the sale of the hill section home. Within a few weeks, Rob had found a buyer for us that was within a few percent of our asking price.
In 2004 my wife and I decided that we wanted to be nearer to the beach. We realized that the townhouse market was exploding! I asked rob to take me to some town-homes on the market near ours, and we came up with a selling price that fit the market. To make Rob’s job that much more difficult, we told him we didn’t want any signs or open houses or ads. We weren’t sure we wanted to sell unless there was a good beach property on the market.
Rob found us a buyer that offered us full price within a few weeks. We wound up almost doubling our investment in two years.
In the meantime, we found the perfect beach house in an “A+” location.
Fast forward two years later; we sold that house, again with a “pocket listing” for a substantial profit in a difficult market. In order to sell that house, we needed to make some improvements. Rob personally came over on numerous occasions to discuss the details with the various contractors and myself. These improvements, I believe was the primary reason the house sold so quickly, and for close to full price.
The only reason we didn’t use Rob to buy the next house was because we moved to Oregon. Rob’s relationships, knowledge and personality make him the best broker I have ever worked with."

Bargain Properties >Advice From Real Estate Agents
When buying a home, it is essential to cooperate as closely as possible with your real estate agent. This can be challenging, especially if your agent asks you to do some things that you don't particularly want to do to in order to get you moved into your new home as quickly as possible.
When real estate agents advise you regarding ways to make the transaction work, they are acting as part coach and part business consultant. If you find the house you love and want to "sleep on" the decision for a few days, the agent knows that you run the risk of losing the house. If you are inclined to complicate your offer with clauses that might make the contract unattractive to the sellers, the agent may ask you to consider some modifications. Should you call the week before the closing with an attack of "buyer's remorse", your agent knows the cure. Following your real estate agent's suggestions will increase your chances for a successful move!
