Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.225M in Needham, MA.

If you are in the market for a new home, I couldn't recommend anyone more than Rob Ticktin! He is a total superstar! With such a large purchase and big decision in front of you, Rob is a great guy to have by your side.

Rob has a ton of really great qualities that you'll appreciate during the process. Rob is very down to earth, and shows you very quickly that he "gets it" and will work with you to find what you need. Rob is honest, straightforward, communicates very well, and will give you his candid opinion that is for YOUR benefit, not his. Rob is very responsive and thinks about his customer first.

If I could give Rob 6 stars instead of 5, I certainly would!

Sold a home in 2012.

we had originlly hoped to sell by owner. After nearly 2 months, we realized we needed a professionel. After interviewing several realters, we decided to go with Rob. Within a week, we had an offer. This first buyer came in low, and, on rob's advice, we pulled the plug. Almost immediately, he came up with another bidder, preqalified, but with a fairly lengthy list of of conditions. Rob negotiated skillfully with the buyer's representative, bringing the final purchase and sale figure within 2% of our original asking price. Rob was very hands on, and reachable within minutes to respond to our questions or concerns, and extremely principled in lowering his fees in accordance with the ethical elements of his service. And he had done his homework, researching the realtor of the buyer, and what her tactics would be for negotiating a price lowering. He had our backs every step of the way, and by the end of the process, we felt we ha made a true friend, more concerned with our welfare, than his own. Our original desire to sell by owner reflected the costs of realtor representation. In hindsight, we can honestly say that we came out way ahead. Even after the fees were paid, we ralized a significant sales price, much higher than we could have gotten on our own, or, I daresay, with anyone else we encountered.  More Less

Sold a home in 2011.

We were pleased with the services Rob provided as the selling agent for our condo in Somerville. In particular, we felt that we could trust Rob's judgment, which was our primary concern in choosing an agent. In addition, it was helpful that Rob had a number of contacts in the industry - when we needed a repairman and an attorney to complete the sale, Rob knew who to call.  More Less
