Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $950K in San Carlos, CA.
No complaints on any front. Bob not only knows the local market but really understands the community. He promptly made great recommendations for everyone I needed to work with from mortgage brokers to handymen, to electricians and landscapers. No question was considered too trivial. Went to Bob initially out of his support for San Carlos Educational Foundation. Appreciated that he followed through on his support for SCEF all the way.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $750K in San Carlos, CA.
I was very impressed with Bob's knowledge of San Carlos, with regards to new listings, valuations, school systems, development activities, etc. He was quick to assess what my needs were, and only notified me of properties he felt I'd be interested in. His response time on phone and email queries was never more than a few minutes, and was always available to show properties with little advanced notice. Unlike other agents I've dealt with, Bob was straightforward and unassuming. He's very knowledgeable, more than happy to educate, and communicates well (for example, he did a great job explaining what would be involved in an estate sale). During the negotiation phase, he presented the facts along with his candid assessment.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.55M in San Carlos, CA.
Working with Bob was the best decision my wife and I made moving to San Carlos from out of state. He came highly recommended from a colleague and lived up to the billing! He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, individual communities, schools, nightlife, etc. He was very responsive, understood our specific needs, and consistently updated us with options to pursue. His knowledge of the buying process enabled us to effectively negotiate our purchase as well. I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy in the area to work with Bob!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.375M in San Carlos, CA.
My wife and I were looking for a home in San Carlos. Bob was referred to us by a good friend. He was known to us as one of the top producers in the area, and we interviewed several local agents before going with Bob. Bob's reputation, coupled with his knowlege of the local real estate market, led us to retain his services. Bob proved a competent, aggressive and responsive agent. We had targeted a home before hiring Bob. He felt the home was over-priced, and helped us negotiate a winning bid against 2 competing offers that was substantially below asking price. Bob even made a unilateral, and very generous, gesture with his sales commission in light of the circumstances surrounding this known property acquisition. I doubt you will find a real estate agent on the pennisula with Bob's skill, abiltities and, most importantly, sense of fair dealing. The closing process went very smoothly, Bob was exceedingly patient and always available to assist with questions or concerns. His experience as a licensed attorney also added a degree of confidence when navigationg the various legal documents involved in the purchase. I would recommend Bob to my friends and family. He is a smart, confident and honest real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $675K in San Carlos, CA.
If you are considering buying or selling your home in San Carlos, look no further then Bob Bredel. Bob has his finger on the pulse of San Carlos like no other agent practicing real estate in the area. Bob is originally from the San Carlos area and has an intimate knowledge regarding the different San Carlos neighborhoods and can point you in the right direction depending on what type of home and neighborhood you are looking for. Bob even produces a blog that provides a wonderful overview of the community and real estate topics. Bob helped us purchase our 2nd home in San Carlos in the summer of 2008. Bob helped us navigate any pitfalls with the purchase of this home and thoroughly represented our needs. He is a knowledgeable agent and understands the concerns of his customers. He takes time to understand your needs in your next home and works diligently to find the "right house" for you. In a competitive market, you want Bob on your side to help your purchase your dream home in the "town of good living".

Sold a home in 2010.
As the previous reviews have stated, Bob is an amazing agent. He always made us feel as though we were his only clients and he put our interests first. We bought and sold houses with him in a short and competitive timeframe and we couldn't have been more impressed with his knowledge of the real estate market and his strong negotiating skills. Bottom line....Bob gets the job done.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.125M in San Carlos, CA.
We were referred to Bob Bredel by a friend who had been impressed with Bob's real estate blog. We interviewed Bob and another prominent agent. We selected Bob based on his specific, local knowledge and the potential for access to pre-market properties. working with Bob was enjoyable. He was very accessible for seeing houses, and he quickly zeroed in on our preferences. There weren't many houses on the market, but Bob helped us get a quick understanding of the market. He even delivered on his promise and showed two houses that were not yet on the market. We decided to place an offer on the second house. Bob competently guided us through the negotiation and closing process. We are very happy with our home and extremely satisfied with Bob's service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $800K in San Carlos, CA.
We had an excellent experience with Bob Bredel as our real estate agent. We recommend him to everyone we know who is entering the local housing market and we would absolutely work with him again. We have bought and sold several homes in the past and our experience with Bob exceeded our high expectations. He guided us through the specific quirks of the Peninsula real estate market with candor and humor. His understanding of the real estate market from the legal, business, and personal perspectives is impressive (Bob is so knowledgeable that we found him to be an invaluable resource even after we moved into our new home).

From our viewpoint as buyers, our transaction seemed almost effortless because Bob is so professional, organized, prompt and responsive. He gave us wise, clear and strategic advice which helped us get a great home at a fair price in a very competitive real estate market. We also felt confident in our transaction because of Bob's background as a real estate attorney. On top of his expertise, Bob treated us as his clients with great consideration and helped us keep our sense of humor throughout the process. We recommend Bob without reservation.
