Bob will find the exact home you require by determining your needs and wants. He will get you the best deal possible and treat you right even if it costs him. Highly recommended. If you want an honest and caring professional, this is the man
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Nashville, TN.
I was selling a condo in Nashville after I had moved to another city. Bob was great to work with and always responsive whether it was by text, phone, or email . He worked around my busy schedule and was available to chat when I was not working. He is very good with technology, listings were always up to date, and used screen sharing/google chat to convey market information to make sure I was always up to date on the market in my area. He stopped by the unit regularly and sent me video to make sure everything was ok with the property. He arranged for repairs when the need arose and I could not arrange it due to my schedule. When I had offers on the property, Bob gave advice on how to handle them, as this was my first sale, yet presented the facts in a manner that allowed me to make an informed decision. Bob was recommended to me by a friend, and I would also recommend him 100%. He is a great realtor who knows his market very well and working with him was a pleasure.

I'll start by saying that if you are in the unfortunate situation of having to short sale your home, there is only ONE person that can make this unpleasurable experience , well, almost PLEASUREABLE and that is Bob Sorey! My husband and I, due partly to our own financial mistakes, and due to some major errors on Bank of America's mortgage side, were forced to short sale our home. After we made this decision, we contacted a real estate agent who did get our home listed, however, because of the inadequacies at Bank of America Mortgage, was not able to get the information needed from them in a timely manner, and therefore we were about to lose the only interested buyer on our home. She made the decision to bring in Bob Sorey with Best Real Estate Advisors, who is KNOWN for getting through to the right people at Bank of America, and getting THEM to get the property sold before a buyer is lost!
Along with taking care of the business end of things with the bank, he also managed to take a personal interest in my husband and I by calming us down when we started freaking out over small things ??. He was very reassuring that the job would get done, and he ALWAYS got back with us promptly if I called or sent a text. Actually, more times than not, he answered the phone right away!!! On that note, I do have to give kudos to his office manager, Tracy, who is just amazing! He made sure that if Bob were out of town, or in a meeting, we were made aware, and he was right there to fill Bob's very big shoes! ??
As I am getting a little wordy here, I will end by saying: If you need help getting the right answers from the right people at the banks, Bob Sorey with Best Real Estate Advisors is the ONLY person for the job!! He has YOUR best interest at heart, and truly makes you feel that way! Wonderful experience with Bob, and his team!

Bob was the best realtor hands down! He treated us like we were one of his kids buying a house. He told us the good and the bad he saw in a house when we were looking and he discussed the full process in detail in what expect when buying.If you want to just buy a house I recommend you go with just a regular realtor, but if you want to buy a home where you are going to be happy with your decision for years to come I highly recommend Bob Sorey!
Bob Sorey is an incredible realator. He never tried to push us or steer us in a biased way. His goal, I felt, was not just sell me a home but something more... Help us make an educated life decision. If the house was not up to par, he would tell us what the issues were and give us THE FACTS. If your looking for an unbiased realator who has your back, this is the realator for you. An Above and beyond type of guy.
We had a not so great situation, and that is where Bob Sorey comes into play. He is focused, determined, patient, and has the "we can do" this and "we will get it done" mentality and most importantly, the knowledge of how to do so. It took a almost 2 years, but he took the brunt of the paperwork, constant dealing with lenders, and even checked on the property weekly for we moved out of town. He remained positive through the whole process and never asked us for a dime up front. Bob did as much as he could with dealing directly with the lenders and minimizing our involvement/disruption from us as much as possible. Bob is your guy to get the deal done, whether it's selling, buying, preventing foreclosure, short sale, etc. No regrets except for the fact that I don't know how to thank him enough for all he has done for us.
Bob was involved with a difficult sale on our home in his dealings with another agency. He demonstrated the utmost courtesy with being able to deal with another agent who did not come close to his knowledge and his passion for making a comfortable sale for us and the buyers. As an over the 55+ club member and downsizing, Bob was ready for our challenge to move forward into our later years. He went the extra mile to get us into the community we wished and then also proceeded to verify all the "questionables" which arose associated with a move into a retirement condo. He has remained to touch with us to see if anything else is needed. I would highly recommend Bob to all buyers whether you have a myriad of concerns in purchasing a home or it is an easy sale! Thanks Bob for being a community favorite!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Lebanon, TN.
This is the 2nd time he's helped me with my real estate needs in 9 years. He listened to what I wanted and considered my feelings highly. In the end, we bought a condo but he was willing to show us all the different options including existing homes, lots to build on and then the condo we bought which was suitable for out needs. We are now where we need to be and happy.

First, I'm thankful for your friendship over the past nine years. Your move this time was more difficult because the decisions were harder to consider. In the end, moving to a condo where someone else picks up sticks and rakes leaves was the best options!
I'm glad that you're happy!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Lebanon, TN.
Where do I even begin???? We relocated our family out to Tennessee from California! Without Bob, this would not have been possible! When my Husband and I came out to "explore" the area, Bob took us around all day long and didn't ask a thing of us. He was so patient, kind and informative. It really helped make our decision as to where we would eventually call home! Fast forward a year, and A LOT of conversations with Bob (let me remind you of the 2 hours time difference between the west and central time zones) no matter what time of day or day of week, there was patient, kind Bob, answering whatever questions/concerns we had. We had for a moment realized buying may not be the way to go and decided to rent, guess who was there helping us every step of the way? Bob!!! Anyway, we finally found a beautiful home that Bob suggested and it was perfect! He worked so diligently with the previous owners and us to make sure everyone was satisfied. Bob set us up with a loan officer that was amazing, we could not have made this move, or purchase without this stellar team of folks!!! Buying a home is hard work and it's even harder when your doing it from 2,000 miles away! Bob made this so easy and had everything all set up for us in our new home when we arrived, including the lawn mowed and tp in the bathrooms! Lol!! Not to mention he loaned out his dad's driveway for our trailer after we hauled it across the country! Hands down, best realtor in Tennessee, you will not go wrong!

Does it seem like the past year has flown by too fast? To think we met online because of Zillow, y'all few to Nashville and spent time here made the decision to move your family to Lebanon because of the lifestyle Tennessee has to offer is really not surprising...but then again, it's my home.
What you did was somewhat scary to me but...we did cross every t and dotted every i so it was right when the time arrived.
Thank you again for allowing me to assist you with the move. I was honored to be your eyes and ears for almost a year.

Bob was able to assist every step of the way. Selling and buying at the same time is extremely stressful, everything has to fall into place and exactly the right time. Bob has the ability to keep you calm and focused and that he is taking care of things. And he always does.
