Prior work experience included Customer Service professional for over 14 years Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications
Prior to living in Gurnee, I had moved with my family 4 times in 5 years - in some instances across the country -- and am very familiar with the needs and anxieties faced by today's buyers and sellers. My buyer and seller clients have come to rely on my help in making their moves as financially rewarding and stress-free as possible. I look forward to putting this experience to work for you!
I didn't know it at the time, but my many years in Customer Service have proven invaluable in my real estate career. My clients know I will listen to them and provide them all the information and support they need to make informed decisions -- and let them make the decisions at their own pace.
Communication is critical when purchasing or selling a home. I am almost always available (and have designated back-ups when I'm not). I return calls promptly and make sure my clients are in the loop throughout the entire home buying or home selling process.
I love this business because it's so simple: Treat people well, work hard, keep in touch, give your clients the input they need to make informed decisions, and everything works out! Whether you are looking the perfect home, trying to sellyour current home for top value, or just want to "talk real estate", I look forward to helping you any way I can!
My pledge to you.
1. To Listen to your goals, needs and concerns
2. To base my recommendations on facts
3. To handle your transaction with attention to every detail
4. To work diligently on your behalf to get you to the closing table
The best way to explain my approach to the sale of your home, or the purchase of a new home for you is for you to read first hand from my past clients what they have to say about me, the process and what I do...
"Bob sought to understand where I was in my life stage and what was motivating me to sell my previous home and to purchase a new one. Bob helped me identify the community I wanted to move to and the price range, real estate tax level, and type of new home I should be focusing on. Basically Bob was a great listener and very astute and intuitive about my real estate needs. And on the other side, he was a very good negotiator and made the deal happen. Bob was fun to work with in a number of ways and even when the circumstances shifted on both sides; it was a successful conclusion on both ends thanks to Bob and his special ability to know what everyone needs". Cindy S.
"I cannot emphasize enough the amount of time, care and effort that Bob put into helping my husband and I find our home. He was very patient, honest and really listened to our wants, needs and concerns". Jennifer W.
"Bob is the most amazing agent we have worked with. He made the entire process so much fun and knew so much about the steps we needed to take. Even when we had issues with attorneys and getting quotes. Bob was right there guiding us along. I cannot even describe what an amazing man Bob is and how much we appreciated everything he did." Katie O.
"There was plenty of communication and follow-up when requested. Very professional and always courteous even with the difficulty of the short sale process". Richard W.
"Very accessible and always made sure he thought through what could benefit or harm me. I felt like my interests were taken care of". Rita S.
Bob was extremely patient with us and educated us as first time home buyers. He pointed out many useful things that first time home buyers simply would not know. Bob answered our questions very quickly and was always available to help." Laurie M.
"Bob was ALWAYS on top of things. Very helpful and I trust him greatly. He really helped make my first time home buying process comfortable for me even when things were a little crazy." Valerie G.
"Hi Bob and thank you for the fantastic experience you made for us! We cannot wish for anything more than what you have already helped us with". Mikael H.
