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!
See what Bob's clients have to say about working with him:
Bob could not have been more helpful! My husband and I inherited his mother’s condo and wanted to sell it quick without a lot of work on our side. We reached out to Bob immediately and within days it sold and over asking! Bob is awesome, friendly and very knowledgeable about how everything works! We will definitely use Bob for our next sell/purchase and highly recommend him for anyone!
Bob really went the extra mile to help me find my new home. A pleasure to work with. After one home fell through after failing inspection, he persisted to help me find a perfect place. Great communication, always available.
We held off looking at houses until our house sold--then we had 6 weeks to find something! Bob understood our urgency, did some incredible last-minute scheduling of showings over the next weeks and provided a lot of clear, concise and helpful advice during our search.
Bob quickly and professionally worked up several offers on properties during our search, helping us choose prices, offer deposits, and negotiate price. When we finally found our new home, Bob did all of the above, and then, when we hit a snafu with our back-to-back closing, Bob worked from his vacation to get it all ironed out.
Bob Sides makes it happen!
I cannot say enough good things about our experience.
Bob was super awesome from the house hunt through closing. He showed us houses that had the specific features we were looking for and quite knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
