This was our first home buying experience. Robert and Dawn helped us every step of the way. They did a great job explaining everything to us. We felt very comfortable with the whole process. They were able to find us a better house at a better price than anyone else could have found! We love our new house!
As the housing prices boomed and investors set their sights on the Bakersfield market, most Realtors in the area failed to respond to me when I sought their services. However, Robert and Dawn made me feel as if I were their only client. I am from the San Francisco bay area and had just sold an investment property. I researched different markets around California and thought investing in the Bakersfield area would be wise. I put the property I sold in the bay area into a 1031 exchange. In this type of transaction there are time constraints. I had to make a swift and right decision. To make matters difficult, I had sold the property just prior to the winter holidays. I run a retail business and the holidays are when business is at its peak. Time away from the business during this season costs me money. I arranged a visit to Bakersfield to begin my hunt. Many of the Bakersfield Realtors I spoke to were unavailable to help because of the sudden jump in their own business. My trip seemed unsuccessful until I notice a listing recently sold by Robert and Dawn. I contacted them and discussed my situation. They said they would be willing to help. By the time I returned home, I had an email with more listings that met my parameters than I had seen during my whole trip.
As my deadline drew near, I feared I would not find a house and end up with a huge tax liability. Once more, I returned to Bakersfield. Robert and Dawn are the only reasons I went back to the area. When I arrived they provided me with a list they compiled of homes that suited my needs. We viewed between 12 and 14 houses a day. We narrowed it down to three homes. A couple of those homes received multiple offers at the same time. But because of Robert and Dawns´ presentation the offers I gave were accepted. During the closing they made sure I received the homes in excellent condition. Finally, with the money I transferred from the 1031 exchange, I happily purchased three homes. I have made over 50 real estate transactions in my life. Out of all those, I think I have had the easiest and best home buying experience with Robert and Dawn. During the whole process, they never made me feel rushed or pressured. They conduct themselves professionally yet they are still warm and friendly. Their knowledge and dedication to getting things done the right way has saved me money. Now my investments are making me money. I would highly recommend to anyone to choose Robert and Dawn as their real estate agents.
Robert and Dawn Morris were wonderful people to deal with. Once they started the job of selling our house they informed us every step of the way as to what was happening. We admire their honesty and integrity in dealing with us. It took them only 21 days from the day they listed our home until the close of escrow, which was unbelievable. We would recommend Robert and Dawn Morris to anyone who wants fast results!
The following excerpt was taken from a letter to one of our customers from another real estate broker/lender.
… which is why a truly professional realtor who does this full time, and who KNOWS the local inventory and market is invaluable. Good thing is that as a buyer, your agent doesn’t cost you a thing – use the expertise to the best of your ability since someone else it paying. Robert and his wife are GREAT realtors, and will absolutely get you the BEST deal on any property – in truth, their business is very expensive to run (I too am a broker with Re/Max and know first hand), so what they rely on to reduce their cost is inexpensive word-of-mouth referrals and repeat customers – which means, to “earn” your future business, they MUST make sure you get the best deal possible for your current situation, your future goals, and what the market will bear today – their future depends on it. I have every faith and confidence in their amazing abilities – in fact, one of my best friends and his wife Kim (people I’ve known and loved for over 10 years) – are with Robert and his wife -- as a lender, I absolutely have faith and confidence in their abilities. Robert and his wife are GREAT agents who know how to find, assess, target, and take-down the deal so everyone wins; which is all that we want at the end of the day.
Robert and Dawn Morris have been the most competent real estate agents we have ever dealt with. They took care of everything from A to Z. The only time we even had contact with the escrow company was to sign the papers for the sale of our house. We did an extensive search for our new home and they were always there when we called. Not once did we feel that we were bothering them.
Our home took a while to sell and when we would get discouraged they cheered us up. We considered lowering the price of our house but Robert always kept up with the comparisons of property in our area and advised us against it. He was right, our house did sell, and for more than we asked.
Probably the most important thing to us was that Robert and Dawn made us feel special and important to them. They were always warm and personal while being professional and efficient. Selling and buying a house can be so stressful. Having the right agents makes the process much less painful.
We absolutely recommend Robert and Dawn Morris to anyone who is buying or selling a home!
Robert and Dawn worked together very well to meet all of our needs. My husband and I felt well represented and a trust that's hard to find.
We were very happy with the service we received. Keep doing what your doing, because it works!
I could not have gotten through the entire process of purchasing my first home without Robert and Dawn's help and immense knowledge.
Love you guys!
