“Today is moving day. And I owe it all to you. I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me. I was told to expect a miracle in my life; then God put you into it. Again, thank you.”
Sadot R.
“During one of the most complicated and stress-filled times of my life, Rob Rauf made me feel like he was truly a member of my home-buying team.  Rob exceeded all of my expectations throughout the entire process of becoming a first-time home owner. With his frequent communications and knowledgeable advice, Rob displayed a concern for me and my financial well-being that is not easily found today.  As delays and challenges arose, Rob advised me by patiently explaining all my options and recommending the best course of action.  When a disaster named Hurricane Irene struck, he personally volunteered to inspect my home to ensure my closing date would not be delayed any further.  I would, without hesitation, recommend Rob Rauf to anyone needing his services.”
Jennifer S.
“Thank you so much!  May I again just say what a tremendous pleasure it is to work with you guys. Rob, Donna, Janeen - you guys have gone above and beyond to accommodate this closing. Jenni Buckbee is not only a co-worker of mine, she is also my dear friend who is as close to me as a sister. I cannot thank you all enough for how quickly you turned this around, got the inspections done, processed the file and moved it to closing.  I am in awe of your ability to make this happen so fast and as always, I love working with you guys. Looking forward to many, many more closings with you in the future!”
