I've been a Realtor in South Orange County, in Southern California, since 1976 - over 38 years! I am well versed in today's distressed property situations, from consulting on possible loan modifications, to getting homes successfully either sold, or purchased, in short sale scenarios. ( Since the early 1990's, when they first appeared.)  I am certified with both CDPE and SFR designations.

I also have considerable experience in "normal" real estate transactions in every price range from small condos to multi-acre estates, and everything in between. I have sold bare land, custom estates, and multi-unit rental income properties.

I offer discounted fees, similar to those on Redfin, for both buyers and sellers.

I would be pleased to be considered as your Realtor of choice, for any real estate need you, or someone you know, might have. Connect with me today and let's talk about real estate!

Ratings & Reviews

Bob is a fantastic agent and definitely knows the OC market. He is patient, trustworthy and incredibly helpful. He helped us find our dream home and helped us rent our condo at the same time. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell in OC!

Showed home in 2013 in Orange, CA.

do not use him. never showed us houses in our price range, kept trying to upsell, even after we told him our price range and what we were looking for... He never listened to our needs and only wanted his commission.

The “review” above was posted by someone who never had an actual dealing with me on a real estate transaction. He has taken a political difference & turned it into a personal rant. I thought that Zillow’s moderators would be aware of such situations & take appropriate steps to delete posts like this, as being unrelated to real estate – which their review system is supposed to be providing. Here is how Yelp recognizes such a situation, and deals with it in a sensible manner: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/04/indiana-religious-freedom-pizza-yelp-review-116572.html I have appealed to Zillow to resolve my similar situation, by deleting the “review” posted on my profile, but they refuse to do so. Here is a blog post I wrote about the “review” above: http://activerain.trulia.com/blogsview/4682893/has-zillow-allowed-a-bogus-review-to-damage-you-#19126794 Please read my other – authentic – reviews, made by actual clients I’ve had the pleasure to serve. Thank you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $800K in Foothill Ranch, CA.

We wanted to move before our baby was born and Bob really came through for us. We went over numerous profiles for different agents and even considered a Redfin agent before choosing Bob. In the end it was Bob’s experience, knowledge, and genuine kindness that won us over. We had a delivery deadline of 6 months and we had a long list of things we had to have in our new home. Bob must have shown us 30 different houses and even took us back to revisit some at our request. Throughout the whole process he was pleasant and never appeared frustrated even though I’m sure we drove him crazy. He was always quick to return our calls or emails and somehow always found time to show us every house we wanted to see even on short notice. We never felt pressured or rushed when we were with him, which isn’t something I can say about any other agent.

This was our 3rd house purchase and each time we moved other agents tried to sell us a house over our price range, but Bob never did that. He also has an amazing insight into what people like, because he never took us to a house we hated. I can’t tell you how many times other agents didn’t seem to have a clue what we really wanted even though we pretty much have a “type”. Bob really listened to us and knew what we were looking for and didn’t waste time showing us houses we wouldn’t like. I can’t recommend Bob enough, he’s a superb agent and you won’t find anyone who knows Orange County like he does.
