Testimonials

Great word of mouth is absolutely the best advertising I could ever hope for!  Thank you so much to my amazing clients for being nice enough to share some of their testimonials here and for recommending me to your friends, family, and co-workers.  I’m glad I could help solve your problems and find you awesome homes.  Outstanding service is what I try to be all about and what I’d like to think really sets me apart as a REALTOR®.

 

First off, I just want to say, I was so, SO impressed with Rob – he was pretty much my eyes and ears from start to finish with my real estate purchase. His professionalism, enthusiasm, patience, knowledge, efficiency, work ethic and commitment in getting a property for me – he was hardcore! Loved it!  You want him working for you! He will give it his all to get that property you want.

He listened to what I wanted in a property and I got what I asked for – even with my long list of wants and very limited budget. Tough to do! Plus, to add to that, I was a geographically challenged client – a Canadian living in Saudi Arabia, which, in itself, was a big headache. He was having to communicate with me at odd hours and doing all sorts of behind the scenes things to make sure the deal got done.

He went above and beyond for me. In a paragraph or even two, I cannot convey in words everything that Rob did for me, as it was a lot (and a lot of headache for him). I can say, I am a very happy client and that I wouldn’t have the property I have today if it wasn’t for all of Rob’s hard work. Thank you so much for everything you did Rob! It is very much appreciated!!

I highly recommend Rob to anyone who needs an amazing Realtor!

The fact that Rob didn’t fire me as his client is a real testament to his patience! We spent about 3 months working together to find the perfect home for our family. But after all my flip-flopping on locations and must-haves, we found it! (I can’t count how many times I said “I would never want to live in that area, only to call Rob the next day to ask to see a house there!) We could always count on Rob to be quick to respond and to always be looking out for our best interests. He really listened and was able to truly understand what was going to work for our family. We found him to be knowledgeable, honest, and extremely dedicated. After all the time we spent on this endeavour, we consider Rob a friend and will always recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.

Rob was awesome to work with!  Through no fault of our own, my deal had to be extended three times.  Rob talked me off the ledge during a few high-stress moments and kept me in the loop the whole time as to where things stood during the process.  His easygoing nature definitely helped me relax and now I’m loving my newly built home!

I have to thank Rob Freeman for his incredible work ethic running around looking for our new home!  It is no small task trying to buy a home when you don’t live in the area, but I trusted Rob with this task and I am very happy with the results.  From daily/hourly phone calls to keep us up to date, to attending open houses and home inspections, we had our bases covered!  Buying a home will always be one of the biggest purchases you will make and I recommend using Rob Freeman if you are thinking of making the move to the Island.  PS  A lot less traffic here and still affordable!

Rob was the man we needed to help us out, moving from the Fraser Valley to the Island without knowing anything about anything over there!  He made it very easy, going above and beyond even what a REALTOR® should do!  Hooked me up with new work contacts, was our taxi, looked after things for us if we couldn’t make it across for appointments, and just happens to be a great fella as well!  Thanks for what you did for us, Robbie, I’ll use you again!

I was moving from Alberta and had my sights set on a home on Vancouver Island. I didn’t anticipate the challenges my 110lb Great Dane, teenage son, and budget would create in the hot real estate market here on the island.  Rob to the rescue!!  His patience and great sense of humor helped keep my frustration level in check during the search.  Since I was house hunting remotely, he did some video walkthroughs for me when the online photos didn’t quite cut it and, once I found my new home, he even helped line up my inspectors and tradespeople.  I’ve been in my new home for a while now and have Rob to thank for all his hard work in getting my deal done. I highly recommend him to anyone and will use him the next time I am ready to move – hopefully not for a while yet though.

Pondering the idea of getting out of the Lower Mainland rat race, my family (wife, 3 kids, and dog) were deeply considering a relocation to Vancouver Island.  As they say, “third time’s the charm”.  In the world of real estate, that third charm was Rob Freeman.  I had worked with a couple of other REALTORS® in the never ending quest of trying to find our Island Dream Home but neither of them had spun me the right way. I finally found “my guy” who I knew in an instant would be the person to help us on our journey of finding our ideal home.  Rob is very courteous, polite, and diligent in making sure our needs (and wants) for a new home were met.  And boy were they ever!  With 4400 sq/ft of awesomeness on 1.3 acres steps away from the ocean in beautiful Qualicum Beach, what started out as an agent/client relationship has now formed into a friendship with Rob.  I have mad respect for him as a husband, father and as a human being.  Look no further than Rob Freeman when it comes to your real estate needs, whether buying or selling, you will make no better decision than choosing him as your REALTOR®.  Thanks for everything, my friend!

Rob was very friendly and easy to work with, as well as very organized when it came to setting up quick, last minute viewings for all the houses we found online.  Never too pushy or “desperate” for the sale, Rob was very approachable and understanding as the criteria for what we looked for changed as we went through the process.   I would recommend Rob to anyone in the Nanaimo area as he’s definitely up and coming in this crazy Vancouver Island real estate world.  As someone who works in sales myself, I can appreciate his rare, customer-centric approach.

Honestly, the thought of moving from the Fraser Valley to the Island seemed quite daunting. We knew nothing about Nanaimo and surrounding areas and felt very overwhelmed about paving a new life for our family here. Enter Rob Freeman. He dedicated his time to us when we were in town visiting for 3 days and weren’t even certain we were going to move yet, but we found THE house. We are over the moon excited to have made the move and are so thankful that everything fell into place (much of that was with Rob’s assistance). Rob was our man on the ground on the island when we couldn’t be there. It was such a relief to know that we had someone we could trust to guide us through the process. Thank you Rob! I look forward to seeing you around town!

We recently used Rob for the purchase of our new home. He listened intently to our very detailed list of needs and wants and truly cared about finding us the perfect home for our family. He went above and beyond finding out extra information during the purchase. In the end we found the perfect home for our young family.

–Nickie Dickson

 

Rob recently helped us find our new home and was wonderful to work with.  He was always available and had the answers to questions we had and also questions for us we didn’t even know we should have had. He worked hard to get us the house we wanted on our timeline and within our budget.  Thanks, Rob.

I am so incredibly grateful for Rob!  Real estate can be a difficult and very emotional experience, not to mention extremely stressful. But, with Rob directing the show, I felt so confident and comfortable.  He is so knowledgeable and experienced that I felt completely safe leaving the biggest purchase of my life in his hands, and, as a bonus, he kept me laughing the whole way through.  I would recommend him to my closest family and friends without a doubt or hesitation. He’s amazing!

Rob and Dawn did a fabulous job of both selling my home and helping me find a new one. The marketing of my home was so professional, from the beautiful pictures that showcased it, to the back to back showings once it was listed. I was very pleased to get a selling price that set a new high for the neighbourhood. I love my new condo, and was happy to purchase it without multiple bids. Rob was kind and patient throughout the process and I would recommend him to help with your realty needs.
