We worked with Bob Bredel from Sotheby’s on both sides of the deal and would recommend him HIGHLY. While he’s known as a San Carlos Real Estate Specialist (and he is! – check out his blog at http://SanCarlosBlog.com), he knows the entire Peninsula very well and was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were considering in San Mateo as well.
Bob is professional, kind, patient, savvy, a shrewd negotiator (he practiced as an attorney prior to real estate), practical, clever, thoughtful and a family man who will be very understanding of your life (I was 8+ months pregnant with #2 when we did these transactions with him)! He’s well respected by his fellow Realtors on the Peninsula, which helps a ton both in searching for off-market houses and during negotiations. I really can’t say enough good things about him.
There’s no better Realtor on the Peninsula. Bob is awesome!
