Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Concord, CA.
We first worked with Rob Gomberg in 2008 when we moved to Northern California. We were new to the area, but had certain parameters to work with in order to find our new home and felt a bit lost. Rob quashed any anxiety we had and showed us properties in different cities to get a feel for the area. We finally settled on a property that fit us to a "T." Fast forward 6 years and it was time to find a new home as we had outgrown our old one. Without hesitation, we contacted Rob and began a difficult search in a seller's market. Rob worked hard to help us find a home, again within our parameters and personal quirks. After a long search, Rob found us the perfect home and represented us and our best interests in the negotiations. Once that was settled, Rob turned his attention and marketing skills to successfully sell our old home. Whether it's a buyer's or seller's market, Rob adapts to the current real estate trend always keeping his client's needs in the forefront. Without hesitation, we would work with Rob again and again and recommend him to anyone interested in buying/selling a home.
Rob was great. He was very helpful in locating and communicating properties in our price range and also desired neighborhoods. We received several listings per week via email. Rob was happy to show us any property we were interested in and was extremely flexible with our schedule.
When it came time to submit offers, Rob presented a very nicely written offer letter and also provided a lot of great direction on how to draw the offer up. Being new to the California real estate market, this was very helpful.
Once we had an accepted offer Rob was great in keeping to the tight timeline and managing the process not only from our side, but the lending group and sellers side. It made our lives much easier, especially being new to the prcocess in California.
We were very happy with Rob and would recommend him in the future. We will be using Rob ourselves when and if the time comes again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Pleasant Hill, CA.
I will be the first to stay that we were very picky clients. We knew exactly what we wanted and didn't want to budge. We worked with other agents before and they just didn't seem to understand what we were looking for. Rob Gomberg was patient and helped us to find our dream property and encouraged us to be open to negotiating at a competitive level. I would highly recommend Rob for his kindness, his persistence on our behalf, his professionalisim and patience. He went above and beyond and was always a pleasure to work with.
Rob was very patient with us in our search for the right home for the right price. Looking for a home can be very emotional and frustrating in this competitive market. There were a couple times that we were ready to give up but Rob would send us emails on new homes and helped us realize that in time, the home of our dreams would show up. Interest rates were low and prices were just starting to creep up, so we believed in Rob and he found us a beautiful home at a great price...he found our diamond in the rough! Thanks Rob!
We would recommend Rob to anyone looking for a home or condo. I don't think you can find a more trusted, caring, and informed real estate agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Dublin, CA.
Rob is a great person to work with. We have been house hunting for 4 months until we finally met Rob at the open house. He has done a wonderful job as dual agent. He truly represented both parties in a professional and fair manner, seeking to ensure our best interest, although he is related to the seller.
The whole process from making offer to close is stressful but we are glad we had Rob by our side. He is very responsive whenever you need to speak with him. We never regretted working with him.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rob to anyone who is moving into the area!
Bought a home in 2013 in Havenscourt, Oakland, CA 94605.
We've been looking for a house in a specific development and have waited patiently only to have several slip through my fingers because of a difference of opinion with my representation. When one popped up again that we thought was a perfect fit for us (rooms, square feet, etc...), my wife and I determined we had to get it. Rob turned out to be the selling agent, and after spending a few minutes talking to him, I knew I wanted him to be my buying agent either for this property or for future properties. He immediately affirmed that his priority is to the sellers to which I responded that I just wanted a fair shake. His process included having his manager review all offers first to ensure all bids got presented to the sellers so I am confident all involved came out as happy campers. In fact, I talked to the sellers after the fact and they couldn't be any happier either.
As many know, the purchasing process can be a pain. Between the inspections, the many contingencies and the securing of the loan, Rob was very involved to ensure all went smoothly. I let him know that my travel schedule coincidentally was very hectic around that time and I would not have been able to deal with and follow-up on many items. Rob went above and beyond to assist as much as he can.
If you want an honest and knowledgeable agent (both buying and selling), contact Rob. If you want someone you know you can rely on from beginning to end, contact Rob. If you want someone you feel you can enter into your permanent contact list as your go-to agent, contact Rob.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Pleasant Hill, CA.
As a first-time home buyer, when I first contacted Rob I was extremely tentative about the whole process. Rob worked with my limited budget and time constraints, meeting with me on my schedule. Rob has an incredible knowledge of the area and properties, and provided far more insight than you will ever find on an MLS listing. Most importantly, I felt that Rob was really on my side throughout the home buying process. He was endlessly patient, never tried to push me into making offers on houses that wouldn't have been right for me, and ultimately helped me to find exactly what I was looking for. In fact, Rob helped me to purchase the FIRST home on which I made an offer. For those who have been in the market to buy a home in the East Bay, you can appreciate how extraordinary that is.
Even after the buying process was over, Rob has still been responsive to my questions, helping me with tax forms and putting me in touch with painters, handymen and the like.
I cannot possibly recommend Rob strongly enough, and I have indeed recommended Rob to every friend and co-worker considering purchasing property in the area. If you're looking for a great realtor, look no further.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in San Leandro, CA.
Home buying in California is without at doubt one of the most stressful and frustrating experiences to go through. Thankfully, my wife and I had Rob as our real estate agent to serve as a calming and reassuring presence as we went through the process. The housing market quickly turned from buyer's market into a seller's market as we commenced our home search and no matter how difficult things became, Rob was always there for us and willing to do whatever it took to get us into a home.
One of the best things about Rob is that you will always feel like his highest priority. Even if he has other clients or personal matters to attend to, he'll never leave you feeling neglected. Rob also has some great suggestions when it comes to equipping your house with appliances or home improvements. Rob has the right balance of being professional, but also being easy to relate to. He's a classy guy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or use his services again in the future.
We purchased our first home in San Ramon through Rob and we are very happy with the entire process. Rob was a joy to work with. He was there with us every step of the way. Rob is very knowledgeable, demonstrates strong ethics and always ready and willing to help out. He is always accessible, very responsive and stayed on top of the process and didn’t let anything slip from our end. I have been able to reach him at all hours even on weekends and he is always happy to pick up the phone. Even on emails I have always received a response within minutes. He was eager to make sure that we were happy with the house and price we paid for it.
I will definitely work with Rob again if the need arises and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor without reservations.
