I promise specialized, knowledgeable, trusted and caring service to you!

As a professional realtor selling real estate in the Eastside communities of Issaquah, Sammamish, Bellevue, Redmond and Kirkland, my goal is to give the highest level of care and help to every one of my clients throughout the entire transaction. Explaining every detail and communicating all information so my buyers and sellers always know what is taking place with their home sale.

As a longtime Eastside resident, I am passionate about selling real estate and continue to implement new technologies to ensure my clients the very best chance of obtaining their goals as they buy and sell.

I will do everything in my power to make sure that at the end of our transaction you feel happy to refer me to your friends and family.

Please call or email with any questions you may have.

Thank you,

WHAT BOB'S CLIENTS SAY

Here are some of my 120+ Five Star Reviews on Zillow:

 

"We first encountered Bob in February 1986, and he has been our realtor ever since. There is NO one else to use. He is THE BEST!!! The real estate market has changed a great deal since 1986, but with every purchase and sale that Bob has brokered for us has been done with the utmost  professionalism. Bob knows how to maneuver the market whether you are selling or buying. Today's market requires a realtor to be creative in the listing and how to secure a solid buyer. If you are the buyer, Bob evaluates every aspect of the property, and he has a quick eye to determine if it is a good deal or not. He once told me "you can't buy this house because it is on the main road, but you can buy the house next door." Fortunately, we have listened to Bob's sound advice at every turn, and the real estate transactions have turned out to be perfect for our family and changing needs."

"Before our initial conversation ended, Bob thanked us for calling him, we appreciated that polite touch. As Bob walked up to the house he took in many details and it was obvious he knew the neighborhood, the builder and the positive selling points. Bob answered calls and emails quickly and provided great advice when asked. He took time to explain legal details in a manner we understood. Our house sold as quickly as Bob promised and well over listing price. He is a total professional and we highly recommend him."

"We appreciated working with Bob as our real estate agent. We were impressed by his knowledge and integrity in his field. Bob walked us through the process of selling our home and helped us to find our new home! The transaction went smoothly because of Bob's experience."

The Davis Family

Seller

"Perhaps our experience was a little different from many home sales in that it was done long distance. As soon as we listed our home with Bob we moved to Northern Cal - so, our selling experience was done via text, electronic messaging, Authentisign, and many, many phone calls. Bob was absolutely excellent in insuring our complete understanding of "just where we were in the selling / closing process" through one of these electronic formats. Felt like we were next door. Bob also ensured that communication process through our escrow company, CW Title. Through his communication he made a potential crooked road straight & relatively easy to follow. Thank You !!!!!"

C. Scott

Seller

"Our entire selling process went very smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate professional than Bob.   We highly recommend Bob for any real estate need that you may have."  

M. Huang

Seller

"Very positive experience-! Bob is always willing to answer questions or get information requested, quick response if you text him or email him. He is honest and trustworthy."

L. Albaum

Seller

"We continue to be very satisfied with Bob's help with buying and selling homes. We just closed on the sale of a very unusual house which took some special attention to figure out the best approach for marketing. Bob's long experience and close attention to details really did pay off for us. We  were amazed at the tasteful way he staged the house without additional cost over his commission. This was the fourth time we have relied on his service, and it is unlikely to be the last."

T. Silverman

Seller

"Selling your house can be a bit of a scary thing. For those of that don't do this very often there are a lot of unknowns and uncertainties. I interviewed several agents and it was pretty obvious that Bob was head and shoulders above the others. Here are a few things that Bob nailed: - my home  was priced perfectly to maximize the sell price - it was immaculately staged - he masterfully negotiated the sell price and conditions of the sale - he was very responsive and proactive throughout the process including after the sale which is when you can expect service to drop off. I am really glad Bob represented me."

Homes Sold By Bob

Local Market Update – September 2018

The number of homes for sale in August increased dramatically over the same time a year ago. This is the result of a moderate increase in new listings and a much slower pace of sales. Homes are staying on the market longer, giving buyers more choices and more time to make an informed decision.  While home prices are up compared to a year ago, the rate of increase was in the single digits rather than the double-digit surges of past months. It’s still a seller’s market, but sellers need to have realistic expectations about pricing their homes as the market softens.

Read the full Local Market Update, including statistics for the Eastside,Seattle, King County and Snohomish County.

Eastside

The median price of a single-family home on the Eastside was up nearly 10 percent from the same time last year to $935,000. Home prices have declined each month from the all-time high of $977,759 set in June. Inventory increased 73 percent over last August. With supply soaring and home prices moderating, sellers need to work with their broker to price their home to meet the current market conditions. A year ago 47 percent of the homes on the Eastside sold for over list price. This August that number was down to 29 percent.
