Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Allen, Buffalo, NY.
What a guy!
The other commenters are absolutely right; he is the go to guy if you are looking to buy a house in the Westside/ Allentown/ Elmwood Village area.
Being a first time home buyer, my fiancé and I were incredibly anxious and really green to the whole process. He was unbelievably accommodating, experienced, professional and savvy! Beyond the skilled negotiating, he genuinely cared about us as clients; finding us a home that fit our needs in every aspect. I couldn’t think of a better experience and am certainly grateful for all he did for us!
Bought a home in 2012 in Front Park, Buffalo, NY 14201.
First time home buyers looking for an income property, and on top of that we are not even from Buffalo, so very limited knowledge of, well, everything. He hold our hands throughout the process. He just made the process so much easier, and we ended up exactly with what we wanted. We had some problems with some terms that we agreed with the seller, and he hammered the seller until he complied. He such a great asset to have in this process and I'm very happy we met him. We probably will be looking for another house in a few years, and Karp will be the guy to call. Thanks Rob!!! -D & M

Rob found me a great,rare find in the heart of Allentown. As a first time home-buyer, he made it really easy and enjoyable for me.
He's very knowledgable- from 1st-time home buyer programs/loans to housing structures and repairs. He knows Buffalo's different neighborhoods/blocks and market trends. He helped me find my perfect home,and matched me with a great bank, attorney, and inspector. He continues to help me with referrals to contractors and landscapers. He is very honest and educational.
I highly recommend him and refer him to all my friends (who are currently using him.)
Sold a Multi Family home in 2009 in Delaware-West Ferry, Buffalo, NY.
For four years, I tried selling a house of mine in the Elmwood Village. I went through 4 agents who all tried with no success. It was a hard sell because it was in an up and coming neighborhood and required a certain type of buyer. I gave Rob a shot at it and he sold it in a month. Since then, I have worked with Rob on a few other deals, but have not completed any further deals (not his fault). He truly knows the Elmwood Village and surrounding Buffalo market, and I would recommend him to anyone for buying or selling a house!
Sold a home in 2009 in Orchard Park, Town of Orchard Park, NY 14127.
Robert worked very hard for us. We met him when we looked at a house he was showing and hired him the next day to help us find a house and then i signed with him as well to sell my house. My house had already been on the market for six months and I was up for a new contract. In the first six months without him, I had two showings. Mr. Karp sold my house the first weekend!!!! He has a great personality and is very easy to work with. He is very experienced in his job. I would most definitely use him again!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $100K in North Tonawanda, NY.
Our Experience with Mr. Karp was perfect. We looked at 10 or 12 different houses in the Western NY area with a focus on the Northtown's of Buffalo over a time period of about 3 months. This was the first house for my wife, myself and my soon to be newborn son at the time, so we needed a place with a good location around schools, family orientated neighborhood, and enough room in the house to expand the family if needed. He helped us find the perfect house. I think the location had been up on the market for only a day or two before we were alerted, and off and meeting him at the front door. Mr. Karp was familiar with the sellers local agent and negations progressed quickly once we told him it was the place we wanted. We closed on the house in a standard amount of time considering it had been on the market for so little time. If you are in the market for a new home i would recommend him 100 more times for you.
Very attentive, showed us multiple houses, and catered to our ridiculous scheduling limitations.
Was always on top of new listings, making us immediately aware, allowing us to finally find the perfect fit for us!
We've recommended him to many friends, he's sold their houses super quick!
I'd definitely recommend him for any Buffalo purchases or sales, particularly in the Elmwood Village, Allentown and the west side!

Robert Karp assisted me for several months in looking for a suitable income property for me to buy and live in. He has a lot of knowledge of the area and the entire process that is involved in buying a home - from the mortgage to the closing process. He is equipped to provide you with referrals to lawyers, inspectors, etc., to make your closing process a comfortable one.
