Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Ellicott City, MD.
I would highly recommend the Bob & Ronna Group. Bob and Ronna are very good at what they do, and they have good people working with them. I lived in my house for almost 30 years, and it was a very stressful time for me, but they and their right hand, Marianne, were extremely helpful with all the details. They provided a list of professionals that they work with, in case there was any work needing to be done - a big plus to call on professionals that come highly recommended. I have already recommended Bob and Ronna to a friend, and they are now selling her house!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Columbia, MD.
Easily the worst experience of my life. From pricing the home improperly at the beginning to improper marketing to failure to follow through on communications; the level of effort and benefit you receive from their service is very low. Also, if you plan to do business with them I would recommend giving them a 30 day notice to terminate the agreement with them, within 10 days of having signed with them. They will not release you from your contract with them otherwise and will compel you to do business with them or take your home off the market. I would strongly recommend speaking to other agents BEFORE you consider the services of the Bob & Ronna Group
They did an excellent job. I am happy with how the process went and our real estate agent Andy is the best! As a first time home buyer, we were not completely sure of the process but he was there every step of the way. We are now more educated than ever about the home buying process and will certainly recommend Bob and Ronna in the future. By the way, if you close with them, you get a free truck to use for a couple of days. A+++++++++++++++ Top notch service. Thank you Andy Hoffman!
As first-time home buyers, we loved working with The Bob & Ronna Group from beginning to end. They contacted us immediately and placed us with a realtor who was professional, relatable and understood our needs every step of the way, really putting us at ease through the entire process. My only criticism would be that the website wasn't quite as user-friendly as some others and rarely included school information. But otherwise we were very happy with them and would heartily recommend them to our friends!

We were very impressed working with the Bob and Ronna Group. We contacted them based on a flyer they had mass mailed showing their expertise in our neighborhood. We found that they are truly experts in the real estate market. They visited our home and provided us with a realistic expectation of pricing. They explained the entire process and answered questions we did not know we had. Their team approach made for easy communication! Everyone was extremely professional and made us feel special. The stager made our home look fabulous and the photographer was able to grasp the beauty of our home. The marketing technique they used brought in 16 buyers within 4 days and on the 5th day, we sold our home. They walked us through the closing process and were most helpful in tying up loose ends caused by the buyers. We would recommend the Bob and Ronna Group to anyone looking to sell their home.

Bob and Ronna helped me prepare my house for market. They assisted me in finding contractors for painting, carpeting, and doing yard work to make my house presentable. They also helped me find a contractor to clean my heating vents to remove the smell if smoking. A stager they provided assisted me in making decisions and a handyman they recommended did many of the small projects that were needed. I had 60 potential buyers look at my home in a 13 day period, and Bob and Ronna successfully negotiated a sales contract following the 13 day sales period. I especially recommend Bob and Ronna to anyone whose home needs a lot of cosmetic improvements to prepare for a quick sale.

I was new to real estate investing when Andy Hofmann of the Bob and Ronna Group helped me find my first investment property 3 years ago. Eight houses later we are still working together. From viewing through settlement every purchase has gone smoothly every time. Andy is great to work with – personable, professional, and responsive. I would recommend him and the team with total confidence, they know their business.

We absolutely LOVED working with the Bob & Ronna Team. We called them up as very "green" first-time home buyers, not knowing much at all. We thought we knew what we were looking for, but our agent was so patient and insightful despite a few changes in direction from us. We worked WITH our agent to find our dream home in the city. The only reason for 4 stars in local knowledge is because our search led us to Baltimore City, which isn't their typical area, but they were still very helpful. They are excellent agents for first-time buyers for sure.

The Bob and Ronna team facilitated a wonderful sell/purchase experience for our family. They took time upfront to explain their process and address our questions without rushing us to sign with them. Once we were on-board the process moved very quickly yet efficiently and professionally. This team is highly experience in this business. It was nice to not have to keep following up with them to see how things were progressing...their level of communication is outstanding. We never felt that they were working outside of our interest by forcing the sell or purchase of our homes, they were consistently patient and attentive to our concerns as well as overall accommodating. We're glad we chose the the Bob and Ronna team.

The Bob & Ronna team were excellent to work with during every step of the home buying process. I initially contacted multiple teams when I started looking at houses but only Bob & Ronna got back in touch with me quickly. We had a brief phone conversation about what I was looking for in a home and then I started receiving email listing for homes that met my criteria. I always felt that the team was respectful of my price guidelines and never pushed me to spend more than I felt comfortable with.
They were always responsive when I asked to see a home and did a great job in helping me evaluate each home and would always point out potential problems as well as the benefits in a home so I could make an informed decision. When I found one that I wanted to make an offer on they quickly helped me negotiate and close a contract. The whole team worked together to make sure that the closing process went smoothly, that the seller completed all details in the contract, and that I was comfortable with the process. They even helped paint the front steps of my new home! I can honestly say that they exceeded my expectations in every way! I cannot recommend this team enough! I plan to always use this team in the future for all my home buying/selling needs!
