This is a long overdue review for Bob. If you are looking to buy or sell a property in the mid peninsula area, specially in San Carlos, Belmont and Redwood city. Bob is your guy! He is honest, reliable, dependable, and very knowledgeable with local market. In addition, he is patient and very easy to work with.
I came to know Bob through his sancarlosblog.com. After following him on his blogs for 4 month in 2010, we felt he would be the one who could help us find our first house in San Carlos. We were absolutely right. As a buyers agent, Bob is not pushing at all, instead he will let you know at what price you should stop during the multiple offers situation. In the end, he found us a house on the hill with gorgeous view and top schools we wanted. Not only that, the house had many potentials and it was sold off the market to us with unbelievable below market price.
Six years later, when we were ready to move on, we chose Bob to be our agent without any doubt. This time, we met Bob on 4/25. He gave us his professional view of the real state market at the time and what we could do to improve the resale value. In the following 2 weeks, he got us two landscaping bids. Although the quotes were a little more than we originally anticipated, we put our trust on him. We were so glad we did, because it completed transformed the house. On 06/11, we told Bob we were ready to finally put the house on the market. I thought we would have open house the weekend before July 4th, but Bob told us we could do it in 6 days. I have to say Bob has an amazing team. His designer came over on 06/13, and within hours, I received her staging proposal and she came over again two days later to make sure everything was ready for the open house. His photographer took such nice photos that we couldn't even believe that was our house. The house was on the redfin hot list and received over 500 viewers the first day on the market. From 06/18 until 06/23, Bob provided us daily updates on how many people showed up during the open house, number of interested parties and offers coming in... 6 days later, on 06/23, the house was off the market.

Today, 7/25, we closed the escrow. We can't thank enough to Bob and his team for their dedicated work. Buying and selling a house could be very stressful, but with Bob and his team, the process is very easy and smooth, I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a realtor that you can trust.
Yes, my husband and I highly recommend Bob. He is the best realtor with whom we have ever worked.
Recently, we sold our San Carlos home in an unfamiliar (to us) market. We put our confidence in Bob's sell strategy, and we were rewarded with the best, fastest return imaginable.
In addition, his Dwell Realtors team of similarly RESPONSIVE, experienced, competent professionals never let us down.
Perhaps most importantly, Bob and his team balanced intelligence with kindness. We liked working with them.
We hired Bob Bredel over a year ago to list our house in San Carlos. We had tried to sell this same house once previously with another agent, and knew that due to a less desirable location and some troubles with the neighbors, that the challenge of selling our home could be formidable.
This time around we chose to list with Bob for several reasons. The recommendations we had heard already were all 100% positive, he had a very approachable and trustworthy demeanor to him (not the least bit pushy), he was incredibly knowledgeable, and lastly we appreciated that he was an attorney which made us feel far more comfortable when dealing with legal issues with the neighbors. We could not have imagined a better choice!
Bob is the most patient, perceptive, genuine and skilled agent I have ever met. He goes above and beyond to dedicate himself entirely to every one of his clients. He was always quick to respond via text, email or phone (there is a slight possibility that he may be super-human;) and he has an intelligent and resourceful team to back him up as well. He will not let you down.
As soon as we listed with him, Bob and his team didn't waste any time getting their painters, stagers, and inspectors in. Each one notably friendly and professional. The entire process was seamless. And the end result was several offers well above asking price.
Following the sale of our house, we used Bob to help us find and put an offer in on a new house in town. He offered valuable advice on how to proceed and never hesitated to get us in to see a home. When we found the one we wanted, Bob handled the offer in a manner both judicious and smart. In a position where we were competing against a dozen other offers, we were thrilled to find that we had the benefit of an incredibly savvy and dedicated agent on our side. I honestly don't think we could have gotten this house without him.
You just can't go wrong with Bob Bredel and his team on your side. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again!
Bob Bredel is the greatest real estate agent in California. We sat down with Bob in late February and in April we were in contract in the home of our dreams. He is a master negotiator working for your best interests. Without Bob's help, we would still be looking for a house. I had read these sterling reviews and hoped Bob could come through for me. He did!
He is incredibly attentive to all of your questions and concerns. He is always working for you. He is a very kind man. Do yourself a favor and work with the best there is: Bob Bredel!
My husband and I just closed escrow on the sale of our condo in Redwood City, Ca. I wanted to write this review of Bob prior to the sale because of how outstanding he has been. I just didn't get around to it until today. His professionalism far exceeds that of any real estate agent I have ever worked with.
I just want to note that It was not the best time to be selling a condo in the area. Regardless of this, Bob was able to stand by us and get the condo sold within a completely reasonable amount of time. He made the entire process from start to finish painless. Not to mention that our baby arrived early and Bob was able to accommodate us in so many ways.
Bob was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely talented, insightful, and straight-forward. He is accessible and always follows up. I wouldn't hesitate to use Bob for your real estate needs. You will save a lot of time, energy and money working with Bob and his assistant (who is also lovely).
Thank you for everything Bob!
We think you are the best.
