"Bob was very attentive to our needs and always available for us to visit with. He was like a family member due to the fact our house was a tough sell related to location. I used this term to describe him "MARE" = Most Amazing Realtor Ever. Hats off to you Bob."

"Bob was great, amazing, even with bumps in the road he made everything feel smooth. When it comes time to buy/sell he will be the first person I'll look for. I have already given high recommendations to two others that they seek him out."

At first I was only looking at FSBO's by myself and had no desire to have a realtor. Even when Bob showed up at my workplace I was hesitant to accept his help. That ended quickly as we began looking at houses. He pointed out things I should have noticed. The house I bought is very sound and I could not be happier. Bob the Realtor is very honest and looked out for my best interests. He squelched the typical stero-typescommonly thought about Realtors. Thanks, Bob!

“I can't be brief! Sorry! Bob has the following attributes: Great Results: he priced our condo relative to the market and our condo had 2 offers within 4 days of listing. When the first buyer backed out, he reassured us and it was the 2nd offer that came through. He was encouraging and calming the entire way. Personable: we looked forward to seeing Bob and catching up with him each time we saw him. He is so personable and truly cared about the biggest financial decision of our lives. While very professional, we felt relaxed in his presence and like we were house hunting with a friend. Expert: Bob taught us what to look for when attending open houses. He also showed his knowledge with every house we viewed with him. He pointed out craftsmanship, and lack thereof. He pointed out the pros/cons of each house we were strongly interested in. Good Value: Bob explained costs, up front and honest. He works for his money and truly seems to enjoy his career. He earns every dime! On Time: Bob always beat us to a location! High Integrity: I can't say enough about what an outstanding realtor Bob is, but also what a GOOD person he is. Creative: Bob would ask first if okay to give his opinion or advice, and we encouraged his input (relied on it really) on the less-than obvious projects we could do to make a home ours. I can't imagine ever selling or purchasing a home without Bob Kalous guiding us.”
