Sold a home in 2012.

Bob helped us sell our condo on Capitol Hill and buy a condo in Belltown. We first contemplated selling our condo over a year ago, but were very slow in getting going. Bob was very patient and kind. Once we decided to start looking and start selling, he was right there the entire way. We had some problems with Chase Bank with financing (the building - turns out Chase is reluctant to finance high rise condos) and Bob helped us find a good lender and get everything done in a very timely way. His advice and assistance through every step of the way was tremendous!

On our home sale, he helped so much with staging and getting out the word about our place for sale that it sold the first day we put it up.

The buyer's realtor was inexperienced, Bob shepherded the sale through there as well as our home buy. His attention to detail was a lifesaver! We could not have been happier with all the help we got from Bob Blackburn. We highly, highly recommend him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Central, Seattle, WA.

I've hired or worked with a fare share of real estate agents, probably more than average folks, and Bob is the best. I actually first briefly encountered Bob when he was with a bank, and although it had been a good seven years since I last worked with him, when I saw his photo on the Coldwell Banker website, I immediatley recalled him and his professionalism and competency, and knew I wanted to work with him. The man exudes competence, expertise, integrity, creativity, and balances his skills with a genuine gregariousness and excellent attitude. His negotiation skills are so effective! He's so easy to work with, and yet allows you such success--it's almost incongrous. We feel very lucky that he had time to be our agent during our recent home purchase. I'm about to put a somewhat difficult-to-sell property on the market, and it's going to be Bob all the way.

Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $350K in First Hill, Seattle, WA.

When expertise comes with heart and mind, look no further! Can't say enough. Always there, no matter what the task. Smart. Funny. Has ears that hear. A guy with skills. Gets the job done for YOU...not him. Everybody wins. Recommend? OMG YES.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $425K in University District, Seattle, WA.

Bob's extraordinary skill in helping us navigate the sale of our house during the market downturn was truly impressive. His attention to detail became a critical asset as we had 6 offers to sort through after a fail sale that could have been devasting in this market. (As I was getting more stressed, he was like a rock) Cant say enough. Our son will be using Bob during his first home purchase in 2011.

Thank you John and Shirley: Great house, great fun working with you. Bob B.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Columbia City, Seattle, WA.

How can I express how important Bob became to my partner and I as we searched for our first house? During this very emotional process, he was our confidant, our therapist (no small task with clients who are therapists themselves!), our comedian, our touchstone for every question and concern about finding and buying a home. Bob consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. When we finally found what we wanted, Bob was on vacation and negotiated the deal with his local associate by phone and text, late into the night, from the hotel bathroom to avoid waking up his own partner! I adore this man and am lucky to call him my friend. I can't imagine going through this process without him. Highest recommendation.

Mara and Jason: You are a great example of why I love my work. I get wonderful friends like you two. Thank you. Bob B.

Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Magnolia, Seattle, WA.

Bob did what I thought was impossible - sold our home during the worst of the real estate market in early 2010. Bob had a solid plan for marketing the home and executed it with style from beginning to end. From amazing photographs using a professional photographer, to coordinating top notch agents for the open houses, to mailers and use of internet resources, he thought of everything. In the end, (about 45 days into it), Bob actually found the buyer himself. It was a pleasure to work with Bob and we'd not hesitate to use him again for any future real estate needs.

Christopher and Rich: Thank you. Very nice - and now we are friends and I get to come to your birthday parties! Bob B.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Central, Seattle, WA.

I've bought 5 different houses in 3 different states, utilizing different agency arrangements each time. The experience working with Bob on the purchase of our current house was the best yet. He knows the area well, focuses on understanding the buyer's needs and preferences, and actively advocates in the negotiation process. We found a great house and got an amazing price. We'll definitely use Bob again in the future and recommend him to our friends and co-workers.

Ryan and Donna: How nice. Thank you so much. I truly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to our next project together. Bob B.
