    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Roanoke, VA.

    We used Rob as our purchasing agent for our recent move. Rob is a very experienced and hard working professional. He assisted us in all areas of our purchase, from finding the perfect home to securing financing, and finding professionals to help us with some renovations.

    Most importantly, however, is the issue of trust. Like many areas of life, you have to work with a realtor you can trust, and I trust Rob implicitly. I would highly recommend Rob for all of your real estate needs, whether you are purchasing, selling, looking to rent your property, or simply need some knowledgeable advice.  More Less

    Property manage a home.

    Rob has managed my property on Londonderry Drive in Roanoke since September 2012.

    Rob provided detailed information about comparable properties to arrive at a competitive rental price. He was prompt and professional in making photos and listing the property on the company website and kept me informed during the process of finding a new tenant. His application process is well thought out to insure reliable tenants and sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of tenant and property owner.

    Whether the issue has been ongoing maintenance to keep the property in excellent condition or quick response to damage from a spring storm, property maintenance has been handled effectively and efficiently, and I have been informed and consulted about maintenance issues.

    I would recommend Rob Lawson to any property owner who is seeking a property management professional who is easy to work with and who consistently provides excellent, intelligent property management services.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Roanoke, VA.

    Rob made what is typically a very stressful situation a fun and enjoyable one. He went out of his way to guide us and make time for us.His knowledge of the area was a great asset in helping us choose the location we wanted to live. He took the time to answer every question we had, making us feel as comfortable as possible, as we were first time buyers. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor. He has an amazing personality, is very easy to work with, and makes sure you are 150% satisfied!  More Less
