What our clients have to say.
Where to begin? Rob is absolutely the best broker we have ever worked with. We have bought and sold 8 homes and apartments in NYC, the Hamptons and finally Greenwich. Our last experience with Rob is undoubtably a wonderful experience. His knowledge of the market, marketing skills and sales ability is unequaled. Rob does not “show” houses, he understands the sellers needs, motivations and desires and puts together a package that incorporates it all. We could not be happier with Rob and the result of his efforts on our behalf.
"Rob is the greatest real estate agent ever! He started working with me by taking me to the Halstead office and walking me through a map of the area. By talking, were able to eliminate certain parts that I would or wouldn't like. Then, he drove me through all five boroughs to get a "feel" for them and see what I liked. He did an amazing amount of groundwork with me before he even showed me my first potential house. Clearly, Rob had done his homework on me, because I ended up buying the first house he showed me. After going into contract, he has continued to be supportive and offer all the advice I desperately need as a city gal moving to the 'burbs."
"Rob and his team did a fantastic job in selling our property. Rob ensures that our expectations were managed and timing and pricing were well-founded by the current market. Keeping us informed - plus strong negotiation skills got the deal done."
"Full support and gratitude! We are thankful to Rob and the entire Halstead team for their expertise and efforts in selling our house. Rob is a consummate professional who truly puts his client’s interests first. This was evident throughout the selling process. Importantly, Rob is a "nose to the grindstone" professional who cares deeply about his clients, his career, and his community. Highly recommend."
"Rob is anything but a part-time Realtor®. He is totally committed to his craft and to his clients. His knowledge of the market is unparalleled. His sense of opportunity is unquestionable. He is results-oriented and focused on nothing else. He did an outstanding job representing us in the sale of our house in a difficult market."
"We recently bought a home in Riverside, CT. We were shown this home by another broker, but due to its proximity next to the water, we needed someone who had deeper zoning expertise. Through a close personal friend, we found Rob! Rob handled a tricky transaction as the owners had listed this property for some time and the bid/ask spread between the offer/ask was quite large. I felt very comfortable with how Rob handled the negotiation as well as interactions with the selling broker. Rob is savvy, articulate, gave helpful suggestions for us to consider, and helped to efficiently reach an outcome. Throughout the entire process, Rob responded to our needs succinctly and in a timely manner. I hope we never have to buy another house again, but if we do, we will look for Rob's help."
"If I could hire Rob for other things (even away from real estate) I would! Rob is somewhat rare in the real estate agency profession in that Rob actually sells as opposed to shows. Anyone can open a door and let a prospective buyer into the house, but Rob knows the local market, knows the merits of the town, and knows the comps. Additionally, he understands the process. In many different professions within the service industry, I feel like I am getting the raw end of the deal, but with Rob, I feel like every penny paid was worth it. Furthermore, in a tough market wherein I certainly lost money on my property, Rob was with me during each step which, when it came time to sell, made it much more palatable and unemotional."
"Rob and his colleagues at Halstead were exceptional. Rob's knowledge of the Greenwich Market is comprehensive and was very useful in evaluating how to best position our house for sale. Great comps and intelligence-led us to make informed decisions on pricing, which accomplished our goal of selling our home quickly and at a good price. We see why Rob has the reputation and following he does in Greenwich. He is a terrific real estate professional and we will definitely recommend him to all who are considering a purchase and/or sale in Greenwich."
"I contacted Rob and met him as he was the primary broker on another home I had looked at Although I did not have interest in the home, I realized Rob was very professional and knowledgeable in the area. I was not disappointed, Rob did not pressure me to buy and explained the difference and options available very honestly. Rob has also followed up along the way and helped with his vast bank of local people and resources to get whatever I needed to be done with the house to make it my home."
"Rob knows the Greenwich market as well, or better, than anyone. He is an absolute pleasure to work with. He works quickly and with great efficiency. He's witty and sharp which makes the process fun, as well. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends, and already have."
"Rob was always professional; he has superior knowledge of the local markets and is super pleasant to work with. He provided us with valuable insight when pricing and negotiating. Moreover, Rob was always hands-on, taking great care with all facets of the transaction."
"I am a local developer and homeowner. Rob has sold several of my properties including my primary home. He is very knowledgeable in the area and gives very good feedback on all issues relating to the sale and negotiations relating to the sale. I highly recommend using him as a Realtor®."
"Rob was very knowledgeable on the pros and cons of every street we visited. We would not have our ideal home if it weren't for him. He was patient and understanding as we changed our minds and supported us throughout the process."
"Rob's knowledge of the Greenwich market is pretty impressive and was always available to answer all of my questions without any fluff. You need a broker who has access to local buyers but also investors around the country."
"Rob sold our house in Old Greenwich in under 5 weeks. Super easy to work with a real pro. He knows the market and how to get results. He hit the ground running exactly what we wanted."
Born and raised in the UK, Rob has worked in London, NYC, Sydney and Hong Kong, and feels comfortable working and advising both international and local buyers.
