Chris recently facilitated a Florida condo sale for me. He more than fulfilled the responsibilities of a competent realtor; he went above and beyond. Throughout my hunt for a condo and the purchase itself, I was in New Hampshire. He was my eyes and ears, an interpreter of Florida law and condo docs, and truly a friend. He wrote and rewrote contracts and went to properties, keeping me in the loop by camera - always with an eye for what I wanted and needed - and represented me in a fair and friendly manner. His understanding of the market, real estate, and human relations ultimately brought me to the right place. That is quite a feat, as there were many bumps along the way. We talked frequently, he guided the process in my absence, and was always a friendly and trusted presence for me. In short, Chris was absolutely outstanding.- Connie V
Rob went above and beyond! He hired a professional photographer to come in and take photos. There were several units in our complex for sale and out of all of them, visual ours looked by far the best! Rob was through and led us down an unfamiliar path with ease and without worry. With us being from Michigan, Rob was even able to help us with light maintenance situations that arose from our inspections and carry out what needed to be done to get the sale through. Our sale turned out to have several challenges with a difficult HOA, but Rob never backed down. He kept us on track and got the job done. Thank you all so much for having this service. I never knew Rob prior to GayRealEstate.com, but I definitely feel that we not only gained a realtor, but a friend in the end!- Mathew K
Rob and Chris were amazing! Everyone they recommended that I worked with was so awesome and professional as well. I have already been telling others about GayRealEstate.com!- Stephanie M
It was a pleasure working with Rob, Chris, and the team when I was in Florida looking for a house. Rob sent me great information throughout my stay, including a list of potential listings and helpful information to make my move the success that it turned out to be. Chris was great to work with during my stay. Chris went the extra mile to keep me informed of new listings and was always available to meet me at a listing and even driving me to one site when my phone died and I was unable to map directions. Chris communicated with me several times during each day while I was in town. He either called, texted or emailed me with new listings that came on the market that day. Chris was also very helpful when visiting houses. He would point out things I didn't notice and made me appreciate that he was there to show me things I didn't see. I was only in the area for 5 days, but Chris worked very hard to find me more than a house but a home, with which, I am very happy. Thank you to Chris and Rob. You made house hunting a painless process.- Dan G.
Rob was excellent. My wife and I were very happy he was our agent. He is an excellent communicator, listened to our requests and found properties that matched our needs and budget. I would definitely recommend Gay Real Estate to any of my friends who are looking for a real estate agent.- Karen D.
Rob quickly responded to my message and we set up a time for an introductory chat. We had several phone conversations and then my husband and I met with Rob and his partner, Chris in person on a Saturday morning. Both Rob and Chris were fantastic in keeping us apprised of progress, especially after we made an offer, right up to, through, and after settlement. Very communicative, very responsive, and very professional. We would absolutely recommend GayRealEstate.com to anyone, especially someone who is looking to relocate from another area.- Michael T.
Let me first say that I started to work with Rob over a year ago from my home in Chicago. I had thought my home there would sell very quickly and wanted someone in the area where I wish to move to..MY sale took longer than expected..It was this delay on my end and the constant communication sent to me that I knew Rob was the right choice of a realtor to fit my needs. He was very communicative and professional. He and his staff walked me through the difficult and often confusing task of purchasing a home. Thank you Rob For those who need attention to detail--I recommend Rob--and I would recommend the GayRealEstate organization for supporting realtors like Rob.- Michael P.
We used Rob and had the best experience with the transaction due to his diligence and insightful experience. We bought into a very diverse and inclusive neighborhood. Using GayRealEstate helped us find this great Agent! We did not have to " explain ourselves" as wife & wife in this transaction. We were able to focus on our family, and the details of the transaction.
I was very satisfied with the communication and level of professionalism Rob provided. My experience with your site and my agent went very smoothly. I got a response within an hour after my one and only submission. I was impressed by how quickly Rob responded.- John T.
Rob's knowledge and proficiency is absolutely top notch. He kept me on track even though I had a tendency to go lone ranger at times. I've never worked with a more diligent, knowledgable real estate agent, and this was my 5th home buying experience (not to mention the 4 I've sold). So I definitely recommend him. I will add, he's also a great person with a strong sense of community that he takes seriously. He's even helped me get involved in the LGBT community of the greater Tampa area. You won't go wrong choosing Rob as your realtor!- Keith Santner
It was an amazing experience working with Rob. He made the buying process a breeze even though we live out of state. His knowledge of the area made us feel confident with our decision. I would highly recommend him if you're considering buying or selling property in the Tampa Bay area.- Steve Reeder
