The results of our sale met or exceeded our expectations in every way... Never had a more hands-on and dedicated agent.

Robert is a what you want in a real estate agent. He was well prepared in his initial presentation and had an excellent "game plan" for selling our house.

His best trait is his constant communication. I like to be well informed and he updates you on every aspect of the selling process as...

I have used many brokers in my personal and professional endeavors and I have never had a better broker (agent).

We chose Robert mainly because of his marketing capabilities and his successful sales history. He is far outpacing all other brokers in Scotts Valley sales.

Once hired, Robert did not disappoint. He was extremely organized. He was quite diligent on following through on all commitments. He...

Robert knows how to get maximum value out of every transaction.

I first met Robert while casually looking at open houses as we were not really looking to buy anything at the moment. However, we ended up really liking a house where Robert was fortunately the listing agent. Robert walked us through options, and I immediately felt at ease as he was super...

He is as advertised, a “Scotts Valley real estate expert”.

My wife and I listed our home with Robert and it went on the market 3-6-17. We hoped to have it sold and be able to move mid-June. The home was sold on 3-9-17, which created a problem since we can’t move until mid-June. Robert handled this for us, as well as everything else that arose.

Everything was as promised. I have never had a property transaction run this smoothly.

We interviewed a few prospective local realtors to sell our home. Robert was hands down the most personable and qualified choice. Every step of the way was handled very professionally. We, and our friends were blown away by the quality of the video he produced to show the house. I guess the...

Robert’s extensive networking connections and marketing strategy allowed us to reach far beyond what we could have imagined.

When my wife and I decided that it was time to sell our home we both felt a little overwhelmed. We knew the moving process was going to be time consuming and stressful, especially with two young children and a third one on the way. When we discovered Robert through the My Scotts Valley page we...

We reached way more people than I had imagined and sold our home for more than we expected, so it worked out perfectly.

Robert is a great realtor -- going in to our sale and purchase, I knew the that his social media presence and My Scotts Valley site gave him a serious marketing advantage, but he also has a lot of great skills that were invaluable to me in both buying and selling. When it came to buying, he used...

Awesome Experience!

This has been an awesome experience! I’ve bought and sold a number of homes, and rentals, but Robert has worked harder and more professional than any of the other agents. Best of all, we got more than the asking price for my home that needed a lot of work. I will be happy to refer Robert to...

Simply saying he exceeded my expectations is an understatement.

I met Robert about 2.5 years ago when he knocked on my door to introduce himself and asked if I’d ever be interested in selling, because he had connections in Silicon Valley… and Scotts Valley was emerging as a coveted area to live for tech commuters. At that time, I had only lived there a year...

He helped me sell at a good price and buy at a fair price in a very inventory restricted market.

Robert was very professional in his approach to selling my home and purchasing my new home, and explained the process as we worked through it, especially as this was a somewhat complicated process which included a 6 month rent back by the previous owner for the house I purchased. He also...

He sold our condo for over asking and purchased our new home for under asking, so we couldn’t be happier!

Robert was attentive, thorough, and enthusiastic. Robert represented us for both our sale and purchase and advocated on our behalf every step of the way. He has so many quality contacts in related services (mortgage brokers, inspectors, title company, etc.) that the entire process was a breeze....

We were so overwhelmed at the daunting task of selling our current residence and finding a home to buy that would work for our family for years to come. Not only did Robert bring an energy and enthusiasm to the process that made it seem possible, he made the transition seamless. I can’t believe...

I truly believe we would not have sold as fast and would not have received as good of an offer if you didn’t market yourself and have the networking connections that you have.

Robert is FANTASTIC! He is very detail oriented, very professional, very attentive… and most of all HE GETS THINGS DONE! He got me a generous price on the sale of my house and dealt with some difficult stuff concerning the purchase of our new home. But the bottom line is, he got it done, and...

Although buying and selling a house can never be totally stress free, Robert helped to make this a positive experience.

If you are looking for a realtor, I would highly recommend Robert. He is everything you could ask for in a realtor. We wanted to downsize (not downgrade). He was quick to understand what we were looking for and did not waste our time trying to show us houses that did not meet our needs.

The following reviews were written before the “5 Star” rating system was in place…

“Hi Robert, we sincerely thank you for helping us in selling our condo and in buying a house. We also appreciate your effort in making the house hunting process less painful. We really like the way you do things, especially in the area of searching for properties; by that, we refer to the daily listing updates that we received and we got to choose to see only the properties that we thought were right for us. We appreciate you for not rushing us into buying those properties that we didn’t like. You are a very knowledgeable agent who could make a difference for your clients. Thank you!”
M/M Wong-Lien  – Home Seller & Buyer

 

“Robert,  I would like to take this time to express my gratefulness to you for the quick and successful sale of my home.  I was first introduced to you when I was surfing the TV channels and heard you talk about all the information I was hoping to know before selling my home.  I could sense your sincerity in wanting to inform people of how they can best prepare themselves for the greatest advantage in successfully selling and buying a home. 

After interviewing three other agents, I knew you were the agent I wanted to entrust my hopes, dreams and future with. None of the other agents compared to your professionalism, integrity, and moral standing.  I knew deep in my heart I had the best agent to represent and guide me. You gave unconditionally and unlimitedly your time and assistance always.  Even after I presented to you my special circumstance, you continued to work just as hard and diligently for me. You always kept me updated, informed and called just to be sure I was doing all right and to see if I had any questions. 

Just when I thought that people like you just didn’t exist anymore in the business world, you proved me wrong – thank you. I have told many people and will continue tell many other people about your show, your website and about you; not only as wonderful agent but as a wonderful human being. I know you will continue to be successful in life because you get back whatever you give to others.  And for you that is an abundant amount of success.”
E. Jennings – Home Seller

 

“Robert, now that we are settled into our very first home, we wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for all that you have done. Considering we were first time home buyers, we needed a lot of advice, information and guidance on what would be best for us. Your honesty, work ethics and efforts were not only helpful through one of the biggest decisions in our lives, but also very much appreciated.

A very big THANK YOU for taking the time to explain to us the steps in purchasing a home and walking us through the process step by step. Who know that buying a home would be this easy? We will recommend your services to all our acquaintances and when it’s time to sell our home, we will be calling you back.” 
Lam/Johnson – Home Buyer

 

“Hi Robert, I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in the sale of my condominium.  You went above and beyond in helping me understand all aspects of the selling process and advising me on what I needed to do to get the most out of the sale.  You did all the groundwork for the work that needed to be done and made my job all but effortless.  You assured me that everything would go smoothly and except for a few minor glitches that were not your fault in any way things went very well.  I appreciate all your hard work and “magic” in getting me far more than I ever imagined for my property and would highly recommend your services to anyone wanting to sell a home. Thank you again!!”
M. Casey – Home Seller

 

“Dear Robert, When I looked at the calendar today, I realized that it has been 8 months to the date that I signed off on my house. Since the purchase of my home in December, I have been meaning to send you a thank you note. I apologize for sending it so late, but time passes so quickly.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during that journey. It was a very difficult time for me. I have heard it said that the two most stressful times in one’s life is divorce, and the purchase of a new home. I’m not sure about the divorce, but agree with the part about the purchasing of a home being stressful. The overwhelming emotions of making the largest purchase in one’s lifetime, and all that is required during the loan process takes it’s toll on you. I feel blessed to have found you as my agent. When I share my experience with other friends that have purchased a home, they all tell me I was lucky to have had an agent who walked me through it like you did.

From the beginning, I was educated on the entire process. You supplied me with the do’s and don’ts of purchasing a home, explained the escrow process thoroughly, and was extremely detailed in explaining every document that I had to sign and why it was necessary. I was not left in the dark in any aspect, and although I felt overwhelmed, I never felt alone. There were a few times I felt like throwing in the towel. I remember how you went out of your way to put me at ease and encouraged me to stick it out. The advice you gave was some of the best advice I have ever received. Today my home has almost $90,00 equity in it, and I am so happy there.

Purchasing my home was the smartest thing I ever did. I had been searching for months for the right home. When I finally found it, I also connected with the most knowledgeable and pleasant agent around. I truly believe that if I hadn’t had you as an agent, I wouldn’t be living in the home I dreamed about having for so many years. Thank you for all your hard work and diligence. Thank you for helping me fulfill the American dream. Rest assure that before anyone I know purchases a home, my advice to them would be “Let’s talk Real Estate” with Robert Aldana first. He’s the best, and NOBODY will guide you through the process like Robert. Thanks again for being you. God bless you always.” 
T. Dolcini – Home Buyer

 

“Thank You for all your assistance throughout these months, your listings were of great help. Because of your advise I was able to find a home and invest wisely. God Bless you and all your assistants. Thank You.”

Mrs. Fuentes  – Home Buyer

 

“Hello Robert, We are writing this to thank you for helping us buy our first home in this crazy Silicon Valley housing market. We are loving every moment in our new home !! I am glad we had you as our agent. You are on top of every little thing that makes a difference between an offer accepted or not. You worked for us in a very efficient and aggressive manner, yet your opinions are very realistic and honest. We specially want to thank you for working for us even when you were out of town celebrating your little girl’s birthday !! This is the ultimate symbol of about how much you care about your clients. We were very impressed. The listings were exactly to our specific needs, and we got the information ahead of many potential buyers, thereby saving us valuable time and potential competition.

Thanks again, and we look forward to working with you again in a few years. Hopefully, you can help us get our dream house at that time !!” 
Mr. & Mrs. Bhagat – Home Buyer

He paid personal attention to our needs. Overall, he is a great guy to work with.

If you are in the market for a good, reliable, trustworthy real estate agent, Robert is the one you are looking for. You will not be disappointed with Robert at all.” 
Thiha & Marmar – Home Buyer

 

“Dear Robert, It pleases me to write this letter of recommendation for your services as a real estate representative. When my brother and I decided to sell our home, we discussed at length whether or not we would employ an agent to represent us. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience during our last use of an agent when we were the buyers and it took some serious discussion to finally give you a call. At first, we just wanted information, but your professional and non-threatening approach was so appealing to us we continued our contact beyond our original intent. The end result of our partnership was, of course, beneficial to us as well as the buyers of our home. We were very satisfied with our selling price and the transaction was smooth and trouble-free for us. Your prompt response to various concerns related to the sale was appreciated and efficient.

Thank You for an excellent experience and instilling faith once again in the real estate industry.”
B. Siebenthall – Home Seller

 

“I was very impressed. Robert has been a delight to work with and he is a very hard worker. He said he would get TOP PRICE for my house and he did. We got at least $35,000 above market price. My home set a new standard for the neighborhood. I believe if you choose Robert as your realtor, you will be as pleased as I have been.” 
C. Willie –

“Dear Robert, This letter is in written appreciation for all the time and effort you committed to us in the sale of our home. We were very pleased with the final outcome of our sale, and we are certain that it is due in no small part to your diligence, and attention to our needs. We feel that you acted responsibly, courteously and professional at all times, and performed all steps necessary to market our home in the most advantageous manner. Please accept our thanks for all of your help, and for making what could have been a most stressful experience, an experience that was pleasant for all involved.”

Malinda Farias – Home Seller & Buyer

 

“Hi Robert, Just a first of many thanks for all you’ve done for us. We are still spinning with excitement with how fast you have made us homeowners. This is truly a dream come true!!!! I never anticipated an agent going above and beyond the call of duty for us, but you have done that. You have taken the time to make us feel special and important – worthy of having a home to own. We worked hard to get our debts in shape, but you were the icing on the cake making this dream a reality.

Gary enjoyed talking with you on your show last night and we will be happy to ‘spread the word’ about you and your services any time. (I was too shy to talk on the radio, but I did have a lot to say….maybe next time.) 🙂 I have given your name and number to a co-worker and will have my sister-in-law contact you too.

I must again thank you for allowing us to put our trust in you when handling all the details that I’m still becoming familiar with when it comes to buying a home. Some areas I wasn’t sure what or why they were happening, but you took charge and made the end result a benefit to the both of us.” 
D. Costa – Home Buyer

He is professional and respectful, with a sound understanding of a seller’s needs and a firm business understanding of the real estate market. His sound advice and hard work demonstrated excellent results.

I selected him to represent my interests above 4 other agents. His professionalism and sound business sense is a winning combination.
