What clients are saying...
Robert was remarkable to work with and made a difficult decision easier and positive. Due to a recent health scare a decision was made to move away from our long time home. Robert connected with us, traveled to our home, and even looked at homes with our daughter while we were away. He never made us feel pressured, was always genuine and approachable and has a great sense of humor. To say he went 'above and beyond' would be cutting him short. He is now a friend and a member of our family. We are deeply appreciative of his support, patience, and most importantly his friendship. Simply put, thank you Robert for all you have done and continue to do for me, my wife and my #1. John
Bob is a phenomenal realtor. He walked me through every step of the buying process. I will definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling.
Bob took us to just the right property. We visited it, loved it, wrote an offer, closed on it. Bob made everything easy and kept us informed every step of the way. When our current property is ready to sell, we'll definitely be calling Bob.
As opposed to those who simply want to sell you a house, Bob really takes the time to understand your wants and needs. He not only helps you find what you're looking for, but ensures that once you find that forever home that you're going to be happy with it now and in the future. Working with him you quickly understand that iyou're not only a customer of today but one of tommorow too.
Robert knew I was thinking about selling my condo and he asked if he could see if anyone in the Shorewest family had a client for a possible 1-Party. He found one, we agreed on a price and got 3 months post occupancy! Amazing! Would happily recommend him!
Robert is amazing! This is the 2nd transaction with him and he understood what I was looking for and my target areas. He was the voice of reason and kept me focused and on tract, yet let me look outside my target areas, which just reinforced why they were my target areas! After putting in multiple offers and being out bid, we adjusted our strategy and I got the perfect house. Robert is more than my realtor he is a friend that I'll recommend going forward! Nothing short of exceptional!!
Best agent I have ever worked with
Bob always went above and beyond. Treated us like family and very easy to get ahold of. We highly recommend Bob!!
It was a pleasure working with Robert. Robert walked us through the process of getting the house ready and offered a number of suggestions that helped us in getting our father's house ready to put on the market. Robert was patient and responsive to my questions even taking my calls while on vacation.
Robert Merkt is an excellent real estate agent! He's very knowledgeable, intelligent, wise, a keen observer, and a fine communicator and listener. He worked with us to make sure that our house would be staged for maximum buyer appeal. Robert used a professional photographer/videographer to get beautiful photos and a wonderful video of our house. The visuals and written descriptions in his marketing materials were very attractive, and made us feel proud of the house that we were selling. For the house we were purchasing, Robert brought in a top-notch inspector to make sure it was safe and in good condition. While we are very happy with our new home and are planning to stay here for a long time, we would be sure to work with Robert Merkt again, should the need arise for us to relocate.
Robert went above and beyond what was ever expected of any realtor. We are so happy we chose him and have told other how pleased we were with him. He kept us informed at all times with what was happening. Gave us help when we needed it. Many thanks to Robert.
Robert is an incredible person to work with. We met at an open house and had no idea the unplanned encounter would lead down such an amazing road. He is patient, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile for his clients.
Hands On and Follow Through are the words I'd use to describe working with Robert. He was a hands on realtor, taking us from initial discussions of what strategies we'd use to pick a selling strategy and following through the entire process, getting us more money that we'd originally priced the house on the market. I can't emphasize strategy more, this wasn't a throw a dart in the wall process, this was a thoughtful and planful strategy to get the most money for our property. When I put my home on the market, Robert and I sat down and discussed the situation, what I thought I needed to sell for based on all the costs involved with selling a home. We worked out a strategy where we were going to put it on the market above the price we'd worked out and hold to our price as close as we could when any offers came in. The professionalism Robert showed setting things up like this was exactly what I needed, it made me feel confident that he was truly in our corner. The professional photos and video of the house that he also suggested was the thing that I believe sold our house to potential buyers. Robert took on the work to ensure safety was done with regards to COVID restrictions as well as ensuring our house wouldn't be damaged by prospective buyers walking through. When the house was put on the market for showings we had an offer from the first couple that viewed it, on the first day it was on the market, for more than the original asking price. I joked with Robert that we couldn't take the offer because the spreadsheet that I'd built had not factored in an offer of that much money. Needless to say we took the offer. Robert was there available for calls and questions about things from the moment he took on our home selling event. I felt like I was his only customer when he dealt with me which shows the level of commitment he has to his clients. I would and have recommended that anyone selling a home get in touch with Robert, they won't be sorry.
Bob did a fantastic job for us from day one until the day we closed and beyond. He answered our questions, calmed our nerves, and communicated with us daily on the progress of both our purchase of our new home as well as on the sale of our existing home. He was thorough, professional, and incredibly easy to work with. He is a fantastic partner to help navigate the real estate process from all sides. We would recommend anyone looking to buy or sell their property to go with Bob Merkt - you will be glad you did!!
Bob is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the buying and selling process. He is very professional, strategic, and trustworthy. We would recommend him for all of your real estate needs.
I have had the privilege of working with Bob for several years now with outstanding results. He is a team player and strives for positive results for all parties. I have found Bob to be very professional, knowledgeable and caring in whatever he pursues. He will listen to your concerns/requirements and develop a plan to meet or even exceed your expectations.
