Working with Bob was the best decision my wife and I made moving to San Carlos from out of state. He came highly recommended from a colleague and lived up to the billing! He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, individual communities, schools, nightlife, etc. He was very responsive, understood our specific needs, and consistently updated us with options to pursue. His knowledge of the buying process enabled us to effectively negotiate our purchase as well. I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy in the area to work with Bob!
My wife and I were looking for a home in San Carlos. Bob was referred to us by a good friend. He was known to us as one of the top producers in the area, and we interviewed several local agents before going with Bob. Bob's reputation, coupled with his knowledge of the local real estate market, led us to retain his services. Bob proved a competent, aggressive and responsive agent. We had targeted a home before hiring Bob. He felt the home was over-priced, and helped us negotiate a winning bid against 2 competing offers that was substantially below asking price. Bob even made a unilateral, and very generous, gesture with his sales commission in light of the circumstances surrounding this known property acquisition. I doubt you will find a real estate agent on the peninsula with Bob's skill, abilities and, most importantly, sense of fair dealing. The closing process went very smoothly, Bob was exceedingly patient and always available to assist with questions or concerns. His experience as a licensed attorney also added a degree of confidence when navigating the various legal documents involved in the purchase. I would recommend Bob to my friends and family. He is a smart, confident and honest real estate agent.

As the previous reviews have stated, Bob is an amazing agent. He always made us feel as though we were his only clients and he put our interests first. We bought and sold houses with him in a short and competitive timeframe and we couldn't have been more impressed with his knowledge of the real estate market and his strong negotiating skills. Bottom line....Bob gets the job done.
We were referred to Bob Bredel by a friend who had been impressed with Bob's real estate blog. We interviewed Bob and another prominent agent. We selected Bob based on his specific, local knowledge and the potential for access to pre-market properties. working with Bob was enjoyable. He was very accessible for seeing houses, and he quickly zeroed in on our preferences. There weren't many houses on the market, but Bob helped us get a quick understanding of the market. He even delivered on his promise and showed two houses that were not yet on the market. We decided to place an offer on the second house. Bob competently guided us through the negotiation and closing process. We are very happy with our home and extremely satisfied with Bob's service.
