I'm a protector by nature from my childhood to my service in the U.S. Navy to my years as a Management Consultant and Small Business Owner all leading up to my career in Real Estate where I now have the priviledge of protecting my clients' and helping them find and sell their home and where they can grow families and memories.
I moved Cary, North Carolina 17 years ago after proudly serving in the U.S. Navy and then working as a management consultant. I have had my real estate broker's license since 2001. I call the Raleigh/Durham area home, as I have lived here longer than anywhere else, other than as a youth. I spent most of my childhood in Rockville, Maryland and am a graduate of the University of Maryland. GO TERPS!
I married my dream girl, Laura, on St. Thomas, in the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2005 . If we didn't live in the Triangle area, you would probably find us sipping cold drinks on a sailboat or on a beach in the islands. That said, how can the quality of life be any better than the Raleigh/Durham area? We love living here, where we are just 2 hours from the beach and 3 hours from the Smokey Mountains! People relocate to this area from every part of the U.S. and from across the globe. We have a professional hockey team, the CAROLINA HURRICANES, a Triple-A baseball team, the DURHAM BULLS, a professional soccer team, the CAROLINA RAILHAWKS, and leagues for just about every sport imaginable for you and your family.
My #1 goal and, from the testimonials of past clients, my strongest attribute, is Customer Service. I promise honesty, thoroughness, and professionalism in assisting my clients with the sale or purchase of their home. I will be there to guide you every step of the way, with lenders, inspections, closing attorneys and everything else. I also stay in touch with my clients "after" their sale or purchase is complete. I am your Realtor for Life! I am available to you for anything you might need; a recommended plumber, carpet cleaner, painter, whatever, and I am there to assist you again when you are ready to sell and move to your next home. Whether you relocate here in the Triangle area or anywhere in the U.S. or even in another country, I have the connections to help you.
If you are looking to sell your home, I will provide you with a full detailed market analysis showing your home's current competition and an Absorption Study, which will clearly show the price range in which your house should sell, based on hard, quantifiable data. The Absorption Study will allow you to choose your home's sales price with confidence, as it is based on the sale of comparable homes and the time they were on the market before sale. I will also assist in getting your home ready for market with low cost and no cost ideas. In today’s competitive market it is very important for your home to show its absolute best! I will put together a comprehensive marketing plan including virtual tours, photos, web site marketing, house talk sign riders, and QR code marketing just to name a few!

We feel very fortunate to have been put in contact with Bob.
From our first phone call, I knew we had finally met a realtor in the Triangle area that would work for and with us without disappointment.
As first time home buyers, Bob helped us with every step (without being condescending) from helping us set up searches in multiple school zones, to submitting an aggressive offer and getting to closing. Every part of the process was met with professionalism, wisdom and a bit of helpful humor.
There was not one hiccup in our entire process which is truly a recommendation for Bob, as we had no idea what to expect, but he walked us through everything.
Highly recommend Bob Sides.
Bought both our first and second home with bob, as well as sold the first with him. Couldn’t recommend him more for both buying and selling your home. He’s extremely honest and knowledgeable and always available for communication. Our second purchase was a nightmare of paperwork and he helped us every step of the way. Definitely look up Bob Sides if you’re buying or selling in the Triangle!
Was very happy with Bob as our realtor. He listened to our wants and needs in a home and helped to customize the home search to purchase our first home. The process really felt like we had someone on our side and looking our for us and not just looking to make money from a sale. Bob sides is very knowledgeable of Raleigh and the surrounding areas. We are relocating to the area from out of state and Bobs knowledge and professionalism are top notch.
