Ratings & Reviews

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.<br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.

Sold a home in 2011 in West Somerville, Somerville, MA 02144.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Newton, MA.

My husband and I are first-time homebuyers and had heard how nightmarish the process can be. But our experience with Rob was so easy. He was always prompt and responsive when we requested a showing or had a question, and he's so easy-going and personable, we never felt like we were being pushed to buy a property that wasn't right for us. Assessing properties and making offers can be a roller coaster, but Rob is so knowledgeable that he could guide us through properties that would be a good deal and what would be a money pit. In the end we found a great place at a reasonable price, and Rob's expertise during the negotiations made it all possible. We'd highly, highly recommend him for any buyer, first-time or otherwise.

Showed home in 2012 in Needham Heights, Needham, MA 02494.

I have been looking at properties with Rob for a few months and I am very impressed. He has a keen eye and thanks to his construction background, picks up on things that would otherwise go unnoticed. He's also professional, responsive and punctual. If you want a real estate broker who's the total package, he's your man.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $650K in Needham, MA.

Rob was very helpful in every step of the real estate process when I sold my house in the fall of 2010. He found a buyer and then gave me the name of an excellent real estate lawyer who had to work hard on a difficult closing. Then he put all my excess stuff on craig's list and everything was gone the same day. Rob is an experienced professional in every phase of your real estae transaction. He receives my highest possible recommendation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.4M in Needham, MA.

I worked with Rob for over a year while reviewing options as to building a new home or buying a home. As a builder as well as a broker, Rob's market knowledge is second to none. With his large range of contacts, he is intimately aware of all market activity including properties that haven't even gone on the market yet. He works hard to get the facts on properties including researching local records to ensure no surprises for a buyer or seller. He is an expert at understanding new construction whether you're buying or selling. Bottomline, you won't find a broker who works harder on your behalf or adds more value than Rob - I highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Milford, MA.

Rob is the absolute best! He was knowledgeable, courteous and a true professional. Due to his background in construction, Rob continues to be a wonderful resource since we’ve purchased our home. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone buying or selling real estate. You will not find a better broker.

Robert Ticktin, helped me purchase my home this year. If it where not for him I can honestly say I would probably still be looking and suffered a nervous break down I had no I idea where or what to do. He was so patient and took all my phone calls and always made me feel calm. Buying a home can be very Stressful experience. Thanks to Robs' knowledge and great negotiation skills I am a happy home owner. I would highly recommend Robert Ticktin!!!!!
