“I recently had the pleasure of working with Bob on the acquisition of some beachfront land in Todos Santos. It was a challenging transaction of which many others would have thrown in the towel but not Bob Dooney. After more than 500 e-mails of communications and collaboration, I am now the proud owner of the land today! Bob works diligently, transparently and with intelligence navigating a complex situation…effortlessly. Thank you Robert for all your support…you make magic happen in a magical place” – John O.
“When I considered buying a home in Mexico, my mind was flooded with all kinds of questions since it’s not the same as buying in the United States. Fortunately, I selected Bob Dooney as my trusted agent because he was both a cultural and transactional translator for me as I learned more about the circuitous route of how to buy real estate in Baja. Bob gave me peace of mind, he listened very well, and he negotiated a spectacular deal for me for my dream beach home in Pescadero. Bob is gracious and fun to work with, and I can’t recommend him highly enough for the talent he brings to Baja real estate transactions.” – Chip C.
“Bob Dooney is the finest realtor with whom I have interacted. In addition to outstanding realtor, his character is beyond reproach. Bob first found us when our house had been on the market for nearly 6 months and had not sold. He promised us that with the right advertising and setup, they could sell our house. As our house was located on a busy street and the economy was in the midst of collapsing, this was a bold statement. After 104 showings, they found us a buyer. Throughout the process, he advised us extremely well and would always take the direction that we desired, regardless if it was his recommendation or not. Before we sold our house, we then identified a home that we wanted to own and was being sold through a short sale process. He warned us that these processes can be painful and take time but can payoff in the end. He was right on all accounts. We went under contract in September and closed in February. The delay was 100% on the end of the banks who held the existing notes. If it wasn’t for the persistence of Bob and the seller’s agent as well, the deal never would have closed.
Beyond his strong knowledge of the markets and never quit attitude, what sets Bob apart from other realtors is how he always put the client first. Despite both of our transactions being unusually lengthy and difficult, Bob always made us feel that he truly cared about our situation and wanted to close the deal; not for money but to have another satisfied customer. I always felt that they valued our business and that goes a long way.” – Steve G.
“Bob is a fantastic broker who just makes things easy on the homebuyer and seller. Yes, I enjoyed working with him to buy and sell property. From the knowledge of local standards, lists of contractors to help with items big and small, and honest evaluative skills regarding what will, and sometimes won’t, work to sell your home, he hits the mark. Plus, he is just a kind and caring person. When you are going through a major life transition like selling (or buying) a home, it makes a huge difference to have a team on board whom you can trust, both to tell you the good news and the bad.
“Bob’s team are those people. Available at what sometimes felt like the click of a button on the mouse. I would work with Bob again in a heartbeat and consider him a new friend, not just a professional who worked with me on this transaction. My thanks to Bob (and the support staff…all A+)” – Linda G.
“Bob demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism, follow-through, and most importantly, communication. He was never lacking in keeping us informed. And did so with infinite patience, common sense, and a clear understanding of what had to be accomplished. He is a shining example of what a Realtor should be and how they should conduct their business… the real deal and a class act to boot. We are forever grateful!” – Steve & Julie P.
“We can’t believe how amazingly smoothly it went in both selling and buying our homes! We really appreciated all of the organization Bob provided in lining up the contractors to complete projects. He clearly did a great job in researching the market and coming up with a great price point for the house, resulting in lots of showings and a quick offer and contract. In short, we were thrilled!” – Dave and Sarah P.
“Bob’s team are wonderful realtors to work with! They’re flexible, positive, understanding and supportive, as well as excellent at planning and strategizing toward the final goal. I’m very grateful for their in-depth real estate knowledge and persistent marketing skills in helping me sell my house, during a difficult housing market. From the first steps of the house signage, to the many showings, then through the offer and negotiations process until the final closing—all of these steps went easily and smoothly with their expertise. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a new home!” – Linda L.
“My husband and I used Bob’s team to buy our second house, and sell our first. They made the big game of real estate transactions so much easier! They knew how to negotiate both contracts in our best interest and got us a great home! They also helped us find a mortgage broker when the loan with another bank fell through. It is really important to have a realtor that can help you find all the necessary connections you need when selling/buying a house. They are awesome!” – John and Lisa B.
