Rob Moffatt works professionally and yet compassionately. We interviewed six agents. We eliminated two immediately and were left with four that all would probably have worked out fine. We spent one evening combing through all their information and checking up on them on-line before we decided. In the end, we chose Rob because his preparation and diligence - from understanding the property, the neighborhood and the market, to the quality and completeness of his marketing materials and program - put him just a nudge above all the rest. That little bit more was important to us, because we wanted to “hand him the keys” and walk away while the house was on the market. We found that he knew what he wanted to do, but was open to revision and discussion, so that when we finally left and the “For Sale” sign went up, there was a plan we all could live with, and there was little for us to do but Docusign things and wait for escrow to close. Because of our absence during the sale, it was important that once Rob got the listing, the real work wasn’t left to “minions”, so - although he has plenty of support staff - he was always on the front line and on top of things.

– Bruce J.

I had interviewed a few agents when we planned to sell our rental house Rob had prepared all the data about the current market that I was looking for. Professional and patiently explained his plan to prepare and market the house for us. The main reason why I had chosen him, because I trusted him. We had some issue with the title of the house. He worked it out the problem professionally. He managed all the repairs and update in timely manner. He had resource and the house was sold before even go out to the market. If you are looking for a realtor who works for the best interest of his client he is the ONE, only ONE. :)

– Ellen T.

We met Robert when he was selling another open house in our neighborhood. We were impressed by his friendly, calm demeanor, strategic, effective, yet economical staging and presentation of an imperfect asset, the marketing acumen he demonstrated, and most important the results he achieved. He sold that house for significantly over the list price. We liked him so much we hired him quickly thereafter to sell our San Francisco property, which we had owned for more than a decade and had poured our hearts and souls into the remodeling over that time. We were hoping he could generate the same results for us! I can tell you he did not disappoint! His experience in San Francisco real estate set him apart, as he was efficient, prepared, sensitive to our time and very flexible as we juggled our day jobs with the process, always extending a white glove level of service by effectively acting as our General Contractor to manage the last bits of remodeling for us. He was fun and easy to work with while making sure we got through the stressful ordeal of selling our home with our sanity intact. Most importantly he got results, exceeding the target he had set out when we embarked on the sales process. We couldn’t be happier with Robert, and if we ever end up transacting another property in San Francisco, we would definitely work with him again. We enthusiastically recommend Robert Moffatt!

– Brian & Betty I.

Due to Rob Moffatt’s outstanding marketing it only took two weeks to get three offers above our asking price. We picked Rob after interviewing four realtors in the top one-percent group. He laid out an aggressive marketing plan and did everything that he promised, from meeting contractors when we were out of town, to the staging, to the photo and video shoot, to paying for newspaper ads, to having eight open houses. We strongly recommend Rob Moffatt.

– John A.

Working with Rob was a great experience from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable and professional, easy to work with, and always looking out for his clients best interest. Together we made out a plan to sell my house, and it all went smoothly. He had good advice for some cosmetic touch-ups, made sure all inspections were taken care of, and after listing the house moved quickly through sale and close of escrow. I’d be happy to work with him again.

– Mike B.

When we decided to sell our home, we knew enough from our past experience that we wanted to interview Realtors before choosing simply on referral. Rob was our 4th interview and we really liked his approach of getting to know us as well as explaining his approach toward a smooth sale. Rob came with excellent referrals (we called a few folks and have added ourselves to his referral list!) who all raved about working with Rob. Rob is thoughtful, methodological, comes with awesome service people (contractor, painter, stager, etc.) who all show up on time, clean up after themselves and do great work. Rob’s marketing is top notch and we were very pleased with how our home was presented. Our sale, while overall was very smooth, came with a few moments which we needed to navigate. Rob handled each moment skillfully, with integrity and we always felt he was on our side acting in our best interests. If you want to be taken care of through the process of buying/selling a home. Rob is a awesome Realtor who will take care of you!

– Goethe S.

Rob was exceptional in every way; Professional, knowledgeable, friendly and an expert at market timing and home presentation. We interviewed numerous realtors before we decided on a realtor to sell our beautiful SF Victorian. Rob was a standout and we instantly trusted him to manage the sale. His recommendations regarding prepping the house were spot on. His marketing literature was beautiful. He understood the emotional attachment that we had to the house and was very supportive throughout the entire process. My husband and I highly recommend Rob. He is the best.

– Molly N.

Rob Moffatt is a pleasure to work with on selling your home. He moved quickly to get my place on the market, but I never felt pressured. He was helpful in every way, and I sold at a great price.

– Helen W.

After the Close of Escrow, I had an epiphany. Selling my house required me to be a Project Manager: I interviewed, hired, fired, budgeted, scheduled, analyzed, and coordinated with a variety of professionals (construction, finance, legal, government, marketing, real estate, retail, title, and utilities). I learned and adjusted on the fly-- and even used the tools of journalists. Last year a professional estimated that renovations might cost 8X the amount I ended up paying, and a buyer thought my house was worth only 53% of the price I finally sold it for. I felt both rejected and tempted to believe my house had little worth or potential. I saw Robert Moffatt’s postcard in the mail one day and called to ask for the name of a good handyman. He gave me the number of a General Contractor that did quality and timely work at an affordable price. After hiring Robert and his GC, I was delighted that he was willing to wait until COE to get paid! You probably figured, I made a management decision; and did a little “restructuring”. The rest is history. Robert not only recommended good workers, he provided wise counsel. He gently guided me on what I should and should not purchase; this helped me make strategic choices that allowed me to not only reach- -but surpass-- my sales goal. He even went to Home Depot to pick up lights, supplies, and a vanity; and coordinated a phone call with me and the sales lady so I can pay with my credit card and get 6 months @ 0% INT. Finally, he recommended I purchase a new refrigerator to make the kitchen complete. Unlike most, Robert Moffatt is a Realtor that generously reinvests in his business. He personally paid a company to produce a professional aerial video, a 3D virtual walkthrough, and a first-class website for my house. Finally, he purchased a full-page ad in the San Francisco Examiner--days before the first open house. What was the result? Let’s look at the numbers: 100 Days from meeting Robert to COE. 300 Potential buyers came to Open Houses. 8 Offers--all above asking price. 4 Letters with family photos from potential buyers trying to make a personal connection. 1 Offer-- $100,000 over the highest price I hoped for. 14 Days on Market. 16 times ROI (Return On Investment). In conclusion, I have 2 recommendations for Sellers: 1st: Think like a journalist. When in doubt, verify the facts and assess the motives of the source. If their spin doesn’t match the truth, find a new professional. After vetting, hire, discuss, debate, negotiate, but-- ultimately-- follow the advice of your Realtor. 2nd: Follow this equation: hire ROBERT MOFFATT = Sell your house + Get more $ @ COE

– Keith K.

When selling a single family home in San Francisco its important to find an agent who’s highly skilled, experienced with a proven track record and very important, someone who can empathize with the sellers and their unique situation during the process of selling their home. ROB is that agent! Rob listened, shared our vision and helped take care of any obstacles that would pop up. He was always extremely professional, responsive and sensitive to our needs. He helped make our journey move foreword and we will always be happy that we picked Rob Moffatt!

– John W.

When we decided to sell Dad’s home on 30th in the Richmond district we wanted someone with the most experience and who we could trust to give us good advice and coach us through all the things needed to get the most for our house. We interviewed Rob and then an agent from one of the largest national real estate companies. After the walk through it was clear that Rob was way more qualified and knew what buyers were looking for. His advice regarding what work might need to get done prior to listing the house couldn’t have been better. He was fast, efficient, and did an incredible job for us. There were so many things that were needed to get the house ready for sale that we didn’t know where to start. Rob took care of organizing the painting contractors, house repairs and a big list of other things so efficiently that we ended up getting $140k over our asking price! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to sell a home in the city. He especially knows what it takes to buy or sell a home in the Richmond or Sunset district.

– Tim R.

Rob sold our home on 28th ave near the intersection of Taraval. He is really good at marketing. An example of this is the web site for the property 2355-28thave.com. His advertising literature was superior to all the other agents I interviewed and he believed in the property and shared my vision with what it was worth. We got multiple offers and the lowest was a hundred grand over asking. The home ended up going to a man that loved the home as much as I did. Rob was very nice to me during the process and I am sure I talked his ear off several times during the many hours we spent preparing the home for sale. All and all he was great at what he is supposed to be great at. Selling the home for top dollar and having a happy seller and buyer.

– Tanya S.

We interviewed various agents and we narrowed it down to two. We selected Robert because of his sales approach on selling our home. He is very professional and his personality is great. He suggested various upgrades, even though the home was in excellent shape. The family was kept up to date whenever anything happened. Because of his advice and hard work the home sold almost instantly and at a fantastic price. The four members of the family want to thank Robert over and over again.

– Bob R.

Robert did a wonderful job helping me sell my San Francisco home. On our first meeting, he outlined his marketing strategy which included upscale sales brochures, a multi-faceted online presentation, a robust open showing agenda, and a comprehensive review of recent comparable to help set the selling price. I was impressed with his professionalism and confident on his abilities based on one of his other recent listings in my neighborhood. Throughout the preparation, staging, open home showings, sales negotiation, and escrow process, Rob kept me up to date on the progress. He was always obtainable via phone or text. He was very hands on, meeting with inspectors, painters, repairmen, and other service persons as needed during the sale. Because of his logical marketing strategy and understanding of the San Francisco market, I ended up with a multiple offers situation and ended up selling the home for more than I had hoped for, and an escrow of merely 21 days.

– Brian Y.

I was looking for a realtor to help sell my mom’s house in the City, and came upon Rob’s ad in the Richmond Review; a neighborhood gem. Since this was a very important venture, I did my due diligence, cold-called and interviewed agents on the phone and then met 6 of them in person. Immediately I felt very comfortable with Rob, and his professionalism and preparedness impressed me. A few days after the initial meeting, he called and wanted to further discuss what he could do to help market and sell the home. Since I was still interviewing agents, I didn’t feel ready to commit to him representing the sale, but he continued to guide me along the process and I honestly didn’t feel pushed. Because of some family issues, I couldn’t move forward for a few weeks, but when I finally chose him, things moved quickly. He told me to give him a month to renovate and prep the house for sale, and along with months of working with my fiancé to empty, prepare and to contribute whatever manual labor we had the ability to do, we were on target with the scheduling of the open house(s). Members of my family, and some neighbors, were blown away by the transformation, and my mom’s home was no longer recognizable, in a good way. It was now very modern, and along with the loving care my mom always bestowed upon it, the home was beautiful. I honestly believe this could not have happened without the constant input, care and management Rob exhibited. He was so easy to work with, and his pool of resources was boundless. His connections did a great job, particularly the staging. A superb effort! Rob and I talked all the time, mainly because I’m so detail-oriented, and his guidance was very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend him, and already have to friends and colleagues.

– Tina L.

Rob recently helped me buy a home in the Sunset. My unusual situation (foreign buyer, etc.) caused huge headaches with getting into contract and getting a loan. Yet, despite one deal that fell through and nearly six months of searching, Rob never lost his patience, and we finally did close on a deal. He never complained about doing legwork (open houses, visiting city office, etc.) and instead saw it as a learning experience for himself. A positive experience all around.

– Bob M.

I’ve known Rob for a long time. As a first time home-buyer, I knew he had the experience and skills I needed. I made a great choice. Rob focused my search and established an excellent working relationship with the seller’s agent. He negotiated on my behalf and got great results. When it came time to finance the purchase and inspect the home, I enjoyed working with the experts he recommended. The entire process took only five weeks from my first phone call to close of escrow, thanks to Rob’s attention to each detail. He does great work. For anyone needing a buyer’s agent, I cannot imagine a better choice.

– Randall C.

I don’t know what else to say other than “Thank you! ”You guided us through this long journey so patiently. We always appreciated your hard work and professional support to us. We will continue to need your advice and service. However, meanwhile, “Thank You So Much!!” Best Regards

– Misha, Yumiko & Yulia

Thank you for your professional services. My San Francisco property sold in a short period! You are a sincere, hardworking, and friendly broker. I am completely satisfied by your services. I will recommend your services to my family and friends. Best Wishes

– Helen Ng

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rob to sell my loved one’s house. When I first met him, he gave me excellent advice on what we would need to do to get house ready for sale, and I thought that his marketing plan was extremely well thought out and high quality. The house needed some updating and freshening, and Rob was able to facilitate the work that needed to be done to get it ready for sale. And everything came in right on budget and right on time. The staging company he works with did a beautiful job, and we sold the house almost immediately for a great price, with multiple offers. Rob delivered exactly what we had hoped for. He was always kind, honest, enthusiastic, and hard working, and he really understands the market. Things really went as well as they possibly could have gone. I really enjoyed working with him, and would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone.

– Katherine Y.

My wife and I both loved working with Robert, he delivered in every way possible! He was flexible with us when he needed to be, taught us well and helped us tremendously in the process. He’s very friendly and professional and was great at working around our busy schedule, We sold our house in the Outer Mission, June 2015 - Robert’s marketing strategies brought hundreds of people to the open house dates and our house was sold in 6 days! We would highly recommend Robert to anyone in SF selling their house or apt., regardless of neighborhood!

– Melissa & Trond

We highly recommend Rob! He helped us sell our home in the Mission Terrace neighborhood recently. His expertise marketing our property, knowledge of the SF real estate market and astute management of the entire process resulted in a very successful sale that exceeded our expectations. He is extremely dependable, has excellent judgment and is genuinely nice to work with. We look forward to having Rob help us find a new home and have no doubt that we will excel on the buying side as well.

– Debbie & David J.

Thanks again for all you have done to make this such a smooth transaction!

– Rose C.

I want to thank you for helping us purchase our home in San Francisco. It is clear you have a true “insiders” knowledge of The City. We were very lucky to have you as part of our team when we began our search. As the sun rises and a new day begins I see the skyline. I watch the sun set as we all return home for dinner and turn on our house lights. I am thrilled with the views, the one (not so) “simple” request we had made in our home search. We gave you a tough assignment, “plenty of parking and a view in San Francisco”. Not an easy task, but one that you filled well. Job well done.

– Mark & Patti M.

I would not hesitate to recommend Robert Moffat to anyone needing a Real Estate Professional. We plan to use him again. We engaged Mr. Moffat to assist us on the buy side after attending an open house he was presenting. We liked the fact that he was knowledgeable, amiable and did not try to pressure us into something we did not want. His experience allowed him to target specifically what we were looking for (price, neighborhood, etc.) Mr. Moffat arranged several viewings that all went smoothly. He answered all of our questions and volunteered some very valuable information. He never tried to pressure us and was very honest in his assessment of our financial situation. We did come across a short sale property that we liked. Once we agreed that we wanted to pursue the short sale Mr. Moffat sprang into action. His easygoing demeanor made the negotiation painless. He worked hard with the selling agent and the bank to get us an even better deal than we had hoped for. He worked with our finance person. We did run into some issues with financing (no fault of Mr. Moffat), and he was able to facilitate and speed up the process. He also facilitated the home inspection process and title. Mr. Moffat is honest, understanding, knowledgeable and professional. He made our short sale process painless.

I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for your personal attention paid to Akhil throughout his entire purchase and closing process. Your hands on help was an asset to me as the loan officer and also to the developer’s sales office. I know Akhil also appreciated your dedication and assistance by being there to help with all of the details. This is a refreshing change to have a real estate agent maintain such professionalism by being involved and show you actually care about your client!

– Kelli Hall

We met Rob at one of his open houses, while we were looking for a house agent-less. His quiet, knowledgeable demeanor and no pressure style made us feel very safe in asking him to be our agent. He handled everything from the initial bid on our dream home to the closing documents with the utmost professionalism and was always willing to go the extra mile. This may all sound too good to be true, but it’s not. Rob was great to work with and we are happy to recommend him as a real estate agent.

– Joyce & Terrence G.

The purpose of this letter is to highly recommend Robert Moffatt as a top-notch Realtor. My experience with Rob is as follows: it was necessary for me to sell my property, a flat, in the Excelsior area of San Francisco in order to afford the purchase of a condo on Van Ness Avenue. Rob consistently and consciously held “open house” with my Excelsior property and secured a solid offer which he sold to my satisfaction. Through our chats, Rob became aware f the kind of property I was looking for – a good price, no stairs, plenty of sunshine in the unit, etc. He found the perfect place for us. The purchase of the condo was contingent on selling the flat in the Excelsior, one unit was empty and the other tenant occupied. The buyer wanted both units empty. The occupied unit was promptly vacated to the satisfaction of the tenant. Because of Rob’s insight and counsel we were able to bring all of the above issues to a prompt and unified conclusion. I am now the owner of a beautiful condo on Van Ness Avenue. Rob is dedicated to his profession and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to family and friends.

– Jim Clavin

Nick and I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work during this last year--we love our new home! What impressed us most was your professionalism, responsiveness, and ability to keep things on an even keel during those rocky moments when things didn’t go exactly as planned. We think you did a fantastic job and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services in the future.

– Kathy & Nick D.

Oh, by the way, I’m never too busy for ANY of your referrals!’--This is a slogan this guy takes to heart. He is always available to tend to your questions or concerns. He really works extra hard to earn your business.

– David & Cynthia Q.

Rob was a wonderful asset to have when we purchased our first home. Initially, we were just trying to see houses and understand the housing market in the area where we wanted to live. We told him this, and he understood completely. We never felt pressured as we had with other real estate agents that we had worked with in the past. The house we finally decided to buy was a short sale. Closing on this sale took around 4 months and had a number of complexities that required additional research. Rob helped us out with all of it. He was patient and did everything we could have ever needed. He was great, and I recommend him to others who are looking to purchase a house.

– Sruthi V.

Rob is a truly awesome agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty. My first experience as a home buyer was relatively painless thanks to his tireless patience, professionalism and skills. He found me a great house within my budget constraints, walked me through the process start to finish and helped me to arrange reasonable financing to seal the deal when all seemed lost. I highly recommend Rob and would certainly work with him again!

– James W.

Rob has been awesome! Absolutely fell in love with an apartment and he made the entire process of renting extremely easy. He's a really nice, straight-forward and genuine person and has been a pleasure to work with. He's even going out of his way to drop the keys off at my office today. Overall great experience!

– Sandra S.

My wife and I were a first time home buyer and we were so fortunate to have met Rob to get us through this sometimes confusing and overwhelming experience of buying a home. He was there for us every step in the process and was on top of everything from showing us homes that suited our style and budget to closing on our first home. Very well organized, personable and very professional. He was there to answer all questions thoroughly including how the whole process works from making an offer to mortgage and closing. To be honest, I myself were skeptical of real estate agents and was seriously considering going through non-traditional mediums like Redfin.com but we are so glad to have met Rob and I would recommend him to all of my personal friends and family if they were considering buying a home.

– Daniel P.

I used Rob as a broker on the buy side. I have met a lot of real estate brokers over the last few years and Rob stands out for the following reasons: 1) Professional Always on time. Followed up with prospective sellers as he said he would. Stood by his word. Plainly, he did what he said he would do. Which unfortunately is not often the case in this area. 2) Friendly Rob has a very different personality than other brokers I met. He is not pushy and aggressive with his clients. He is friendly and his personality is helpful when he speaks with sellers, they often like dealing with him versus a pushy agent and that can save you money. He is however persistent. He makes sure counter requests are delivered and where relevant negotiated. You will always feel like the client with Rob and that is important because when you hire someone you want to make sure their interests are aligned with your goals. 3) Knowledgeable Rob is SF native and therefore knows the city like the back of his hand. He'll give you interesting perspectives if you are comparing different neighborhoods, that only a local guy can.

– Akhil K.

My husband and I were planning to sell his mother's house, but after much discussion and looking at comps we decided to rent it instead. It was not an easy decision. Rob helped us understand the benefits and limitations of the alternatives. Rob then handled the marketing and, subsequently, the screening of prospective tenants. We are very satisfied with the outcome of our decision. We will certainly use Rob again when we rent our second San Francisco house. He is in for the long haul and we feel confident that he will look out for our interests always. Thanks, Rob. You did a great job for us and we are happy to give you five stars for all your help and support in getting the job done! Happy New Year 2013! Norma & George

– Norma B.

We met Rob early on in our search for a home; he was showing a property in the Glen Park area that I'd randomly chosen to view. I wasn't too interested in the neighborhood but was just starting my search so was open to anything. We'd met numerous realtors already, who gave us their cards, but after Rob gave us a tour of the property and chatted with us about what we were looking for, I felt comfortable talking to him -- and hadn't felt this way about the previous agents we'd met. We ended up putting in an offer for a loft in SOMA/Mission Bay over the holidays in 2010, and from that point, Rob patiently guided us through a four-month-long short sale, which closed at the end of April. From the beginning, he explained the process would take a while -- with many steps and various "pieces" to gather from different parties -- and checked in with us regularly during the process. Toward the end, when we rushed to meet deadlines in a very short amount of time -- and coordinated with numerous parties, from loan officers to the seller's agent -- Rob consistently kept us moving and ensured we were on track. In addition to this, he's responsive via email and phone, is flexible and accommodating, explains steps otherwise complicated in a clear manner, and spelled out various options for us at different steps of the process. Overall, and perhaps most notably, he remained positive throughout the process, which we appreciate greatly.

– Cheri R.

Rob has gone above and beyond what I expected him to do. I needed to find a tenant for my unique unit and after months of no luck on my end, Rob was able to find a great potential candidate. It didn't end up working out (due to no fault of Rob's), but the level of attention and care he showed to me was outstanding! I even asked him to research the value of my unit throughout the years (for tax purposes), which I needed the NEXT DAY, and he delivered! I can't stress how important that was to me and I know that if anyone asks me for a recommendation for a real estate agent, I would not hesitate to recommend Rob.

– Brandon N.

Before selling our home we interviewed 3 realtors and ended up choosing Rob. He has been everything we hoped for, and then some. He has helped us through a remodeling project to get the house ready for selling. He has helped us make the right decisions along the way. Rob did a fantastic job in marketing our home and it really made a difference in the result we got. We would recommend Rob to anyone who appreciates great customer service by the best realtor in SF!

– Marius W.

WOW! Robert is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! My husband and I have dealt with many real estate agents in many places, and Robert is the crème de la crème. He worked with us over a period of THREE YEARS, going WAY WAY beyond the normal job description of a mere agent to help us finally get the best deal possible. When the market was not perfect, he said: 'HOLD it, don't sell it' (whereas most jerk agents would just say 'sell it' and make themselves a quick buck at your loss). He helped us find renters so we would not suffer financially, and he worked closely with the renters to make sure they kept our place in pristine condition. He helped us deal with our personal belongings (which we couldn't do ourselves at the time because we were out of the country). Then, only when the market conditions were just perfect, he orchestrated and choreographed an amazing re-furbishing of our place, careful not to go over budget, and coped with all the HOA bureaucrats and other folks. Finally, he placed it on the market on the perfect day of the perfect month with a big open-house bash, and WE GOT A BIDDING WAR! Bottom line: our sales price broke all records in the building. No exaggeration. We got WAY over the asking price. Robert is an amazing professional, a sincere and honest broker, and an absolutely spot-on real-estate expert. He is, quite frankly, the best.

Rob Moffat did an incredible job, under difficult circumstances, to sell the house my sibling and I inherited in San Francisco. Communicating with five people who live in different states and different time zones takes time and patience. Rob's expertise was invaluable, enabling us to navigate the real estate market. His attention to detail ensured that the home was ready for sale. The stage managing of the showing to brokers and buyer built up interest. What I found most impressive was holding off offers, increasing the competition, creating a bidding war. Every step of the way his advice was sound and paid off. I would recommend Rob to anyone interested in selling a home in San Francisco!

Rob helped us with the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home, both in 2016. He's a real professional who works hard and knows his stuff. He provided us with expert advice on everything from contractors to mortgage brokers and kept us informed all along the way. In particular, Rob does a great job on marketing the homes he is selling - our home received the full treatment with a color brochure and top-notch photo and video tours online. We couldn't be happier with both the outcome and the process.

Rob is a marketing genius and knows exactly what San Francisco buyers want to see. He had great ideas in staging the home he just sold for us, which led to a frenzy of offers and a sale considerably above asking price. He couldn't have been more responsive and helpful during the process, and his marketing materials and online presentations are first class. If you are looking for a realtor in San Francisco, I can assure you won't find better than Rob.

After having made the mistake of hiring an out of the area "friend" realtor and after over six months of almost no response, we hired Rob. He immediately sized up the situation, came up with a staging plan, incredible advertising campaign and the most professional presentation in the business. Within one week after preparation, he orchestrated a bidding war that resulted in the highest price received in our 23 unit Twin Peaks condominium complex, over $116,000 over asking price!!! His expertise and timing of events is without equal. There should be a new category for Rob - 6 STARS!!! p.s. He also becomes your friend!

I happened to receive one of Rob Moffatt's real estate flyers in the mail when we were thinking of selling our family home. His flyer said he was a Richmond District specialist, and that's where we are, so I looked him up on Yelp. While there weren't many reviews, the ones that were there were very positive. I picked a few agents to meet with, including Rob, and we met with each of them. While all were pleasant and professional, Rob stood out as someone who cared about us and the house itself. He outlined his listing strategy clearly, had great marketing ideas and thought of things he wanted to do to help with the appeal of our home. We picked Rob and are very happy with him! He took care of preparing the house for showing, and kept us informed by email, text or phone while always ready to listen to our input or answer our many questions. With my elderly father, Rob was patient and always took the time to address him and make sure he included him in all of our meetings. When he received the many offers for the house, he carefully reviewed them, followed up with the other agents, and presented us with a complete package of information. With his expertise in presentation and marketing strategy, he was able to sell our home at well over the listing price. We are extremely happy with his services and positive can-do attitude, and plus he's a really nice guy! :). If we, or any of our friends, ever need his services again, we will definitely be calling Rob!
