Bob has assisted my family in two home purchases, one home sale and one refinance. Throughout all of our dealings with Bob, we have been very impressed with his professionalism, willingness to explain things in great detail (sometimes multiple times), and his incredible level of responsiveness. Our latest interactions included the sale of our previous home and the purchase of a new one. I contacted Bob in September of 2013 about listing my home, and he was kind enough to come to the house, walk through it and make a detailed list of things that needed to be improved or fixed in order to get the most money out of the house. We also gave him an extensive list of features we wanted out of our new home. Throughout the next several months, I contacted Bob several times a month with inquiries about homes I had found online or with questions regarding financing options and a variety of types of properties to purchase. Regardless of the time that I sent Bob a text with a question or the number of times I requested the same answers, I always received a polite, informative and professional response within a few hours at the most. My calls and emails also received prompt, quality responses. Once my home was ready to list, Bob provided us with expert advice on how to stage and price our home for a quick sale for the most money possible. When it came to negotiating the sale of our home, we were impressed with Bob's ability to handle multiple offers ethically and professionally, and we feel that we received a fair and favorable price. On the day that I found our dream house online, I called Bob and he was ready to show it to us within the hour. We walked through the house for over an hour and he provided guidance on how much below the asking price that we should offer rather than trying to get us to up our price in order to increase his commissions. As the home was bank owned, it was to be sold "As Is". Despite this, Bob was able to negotiate that the Bank would fix the septic system prior to closing rather than just giving us money back at closing to have it fixed ourselves. As the septic fix cost more than the initial estimate, this negotiation move saved us quite a bit of money and hassle in the long run. Both homes closed on time and at budget, and we could not be happier with the results.
I would consider myself to be a demanding client that is difficult to please, but overall, both my husband and I were extremely happy with our interactions with Bob Hawk and would definitely utilize his services again and recommend him to friends and family.
Bob has been incredibly professional in my transactions with him. He is punctual, communicates well, and gives worthwhile advice. I always feel that he is looking out for my best interests and not just trying to collect a commission check. He seems to be very knowledgeable in all phases of negotiations and contract jargon. I highly recommend Bob.
An amazing service professional! We had a little bit of a convoluted situation with 3 owners of 1 house. Bob completed the sale in a timely manner and with precise execution. Bob will be handling all of my real estate transactions from now on.
Bob has helped us (and our family members) on several occasions. He has always gotten the deal done and worked hard on our behalf. We have gone back to Bob as recently as a few months ago because of our past experiences. We ask Bob to help us again - without hesitation
Bob is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and made buying my home a great experience! I highly recommend Bob Hawk and will definitely be calling him for all of my future needs.
Bob was instrumental in the purchase of our new home! He listened to our needs and because of his knowledge of the area was able to show us several homes that we liked! He negotiated a price that fit our budget, and was always in communication with us through the whole process. I would highly recommend Bob!!
I met Bob at an open house a couple weeks ago and was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the home & the area. I was working with another agent and decided to switch to Bob and have not been disappointed. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy/sell a home.
Bob is incredible. As a first-time home-buyer in the craziest housing marketing in the country, Bob was able to clearly explain how the entire process worked and continually went out searching for places to fit my limited budget. He has great experience not only in the market, but also in how the actually finances work behind the scenes. This leads to a better selection of properties for you. Don't look any further. Bob is your man!
We first listed our home with another agent in October of 2014. It sat on the market, overpriced, til December, when we pulled it from market and knew we needed a better realtor. We'd met Bob Hawk at an open house where he was the selling agent. He was warm, communicative, intelligent, and not invasive. He listed our home in January of 2015. He had great guidance in staging our home, and hired an amazing photographer that captured incredible views and details of our home. We had a great deal of activity right off the bat, and a few offers rolled in within a very small time frame. Bob's pricing was informed, calculated, and right on.
After accepting an offer from a family that was represented by a very new realtor, Bob was instrumental in keeping both parties on the same page, and all working toward the end goal of closing. Just days before our projected closing date, our buyers had to delay 2 to 4 weeks due to a rejected tax form they needed. Bob kept us informed, and reassured. He was in constant contact with the buyers realtor, and their lendor as well. This became more than a full-time job for Bob--as our buyer's lendors seemed often to be giving a run-around.
On the final day of the 4 week mark of that first extension, we were told by our buyers lendors that we should be closing any moment. Turns out their document was rejected yet again. 3 months to the day from the original acceptance of their offer, we did finally close. We have 2 small children , under 2. This was a very challeging time--emotionally, mentally, physically. But Bob truly made it ok. He worked so hard for us. Kept us positive, sane, and informed. He was aggressive in his encouragement to our buyers and their lendors in closing the sale, while maintaining a great deal of diplomacy.
While he was putting in great efforts into the closing of our home, he was having to negotiate extensions with the builders of the home we were trying to buy. He had to work incredibly hard in locking down those extensions, as the builders were very motivated to close. He got us into our dream home, in our dream neighborhood, closing the same day our former home closed. He did this by creating solid professional relationships, always flawlessly communicating, and going heads and shoulders above what any realtor would deem necessary. We can't speak his praises enough--and are beyond grateful for his kindness, work ethic, and outstanding knowledge and expertise in real estate, negotiations and in home lending. We miss his daily calls (but not so much, cause it means we closed our house, and bought our dream one-- sorry Bob! :) ) and are so fortunate to have gotten him as our realtor! We will always be grateful for his service, and wish so much continued success for him going forward.
Bob is great. He is very knowledgeable and does his homework before going to look at listings. He wasn't pushy and was very patient with us when we were looking for the perfect house. When we found THE house, he took us directly to his office to get the offer ready so we could put it in as soon as the open house was over. There was one other offer on the house, but Bob was able to negotiate and convince the sellers that we were the right buyers for them.
Bob also listed our condo. He told us exactly what he needed to do to stage it to sell and it worked. The condo was listed on a Friday morning and it sold that evening for our asking price.
We loved working with Bob and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Bob helped us sell our home last year and he's hands down the best agent we have worked with in our 5+ home transactions. He got us top dollar and he was extremely responsive to all of out needs and demands. Highly recommend you use Bob for all your real estate needs you won't be disappointed.
Bob knows the process and how to get things done. We've bought and sold multiple homes through Bob and have referred him to friends and family. He picks up the phone and figures out how to get our deals done-on both sides of the process- and we've never been disappointed!
Bob has been very helpful and patient with our house hunting process , approximately 1.5 years:) We had very specific criterias and his flexibility makes our home buying experience very pleasant. When we were looking to buy, houses in the area we were interested in went like hot cakes. We have many offers put in and were constantly outbidded. He was always there to encourage us on. We got to know him personally and it helps to feel like we are working with a family member who always have our backs. His expertise, advise and negotiating skills helped us get our current home at the price we wanted to pay. Thank you for a great experience and your patience. I would highly recommend Bob in a heart beat.
Bob helped locate the perfect home for us when we moved to Everett. His responsiveness was tremendous and he continued to work with us until we were happy. His knowledge of all sides of the transaction was impressive. He directed us to a great mortgage broker, helped us to understand next steps and was present through close. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Bob is the buyer agent of our current house. He showed us many houses in the course of 1.5 years during our hunt. Being picky, we turned down many houses but Bob was always accommodating and patience with us. Bob was quick to respond, he usually showed us the house first day it came on market. He is also knowledgeable in every step of the buying process. He had made the entire purchasing process easy. I will consult Bob again in future real estate matters.
Bob has helped me sell a house and with purchases on 2 homes. He is very professional, dependable and prompt. Always willing to go the extra mile and never made me feel I was inconveniencing him, even if it was a last minute appointment I'd call him for. He is quite knowledgable on pricing and contracts as well.
Bob helped me in my most recent home sale (2009), and in the purchase of my current home. I have referred him to two others who also used his services to buy their current homes. Bob worked hard to put on a very successful open house and to showcase our property in the local market. He patiently worked through a ton of listings with me until we found the right match for me. I plan to move in the next year or so, and will use Bob's services in that transaction also.
Bob helped my husband and I both sell our home and find our current home. He was nothing short of awesome. From day one Bob's professionalism guided us through both transactions. His knowledge of the selling / buying process was excellent and his negotiation skills in closing both deals saved us a lot of money. I would highly recommend Bob (and do) to anyone looking to buy / sell real estate.
Having worked with several agents over the last few years, I can attest to the level of quality and attention Bob paid to my family and I.
My wife is very particular and wanted to find the perfect home. That meant Bob was required to show us several homes. He was beyond accommodating in meeting us at all hours and giving us his candid feedback on what we could do with each home we saw.
When we had finally made our decision, Bob helped us get the price we wanted. I am looking forward to working with Bob again.
Bob did an amazing job helping us sell our previous home and negotiate for our current home! In particular, we appreciated his patience and guidance as we went through multiple rounds of negotiations with both buyers and the sellers.
Working with Bob was like working with family. It went smoothly, he was always available, he made the process super-easy for us, and we trusted him completely to have our best interests at heart.
