If you ever wanted to find the 'unicorn' of real estate agents, you need to work with Bob Bredel. He knows more about the in's and out's of real estate and the Silicon Valley market, specifically San Carlos, better than anyone- hands down. He is a consummate professional and helped us expertly navigate the entire house buying process over an exhaustive search in an incredibly hot market. We were able to buy the house of our dreams and we owe it 100% to him. The house we purchased had 24 disclosure packages out and 12 offers. Truthfully, we doubt we were even the highest offer but Bob's excellent reputation in the area and our rock-solid lender (Bob's recommendation) likely made the seller's agent choose us amongst all the offers. We still feel the need to pinch ourselves that we will be getting the keys to our new home on Monday! Honestly, we have worked with realtors in the past and they have been flakey, less-than-professional, and have seemed annoyed with our questions or too disinterested to bother. Bob is a lawyer by education and it shows is his meticulousness and utter professionalism. He is engaged with prospective buyers (and sellers, I am certain) through every step of the process and is truly the best realtor my husband and I have ever come across and we have bought and sold several homes. We feel honored to have worked with Bob and will ABSOLUTELY recommend him to all of our friends!
