None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I would not deal with him after meeting him. Arrogant and far too pushy. He seems to think that he is the only realtor in the town of Newburyport also. I get the idea that other realtors do not like dealing with him either. Experience was unpleasant enough that I feel compelled to send in a review. I have no idea whether this will even make it to the site though. Good luck if you are or have to deal with him!

Robert always gives you 100 percent. We could not have sold our house without him. It amazes us how quickly he responds to our numerous daily emails as we search for our next home. Because of his impeccable work ethic...he makes buying or selling your home happen with the greatest of ease (Even when the stress seems too much).

Robert did an excellent job helping us sell our house. We had a solid offer on our house within a week of putting it on the market. Robert's online/web presence really brought in qualified buyers. Not only did the house sell in a week, but it sold in the month of December, which many say is not an ideal time to put your house on the market. Robert provided us with insight on how to stage our house, and answered any questions we had along the way. If you are looking to sell your house, I would highly recommend Robert. Less ... More

Always anwsered or called us right back. He anwsered all of our questions and and more. I really can't say enough about him. He was really great. Thank you so much Cathy Soucy

Robert handled every aspect of our house sale in a gentlemanly way. We had a unique home that required a certain type of family. Robert was patient and kind with us during difficult family situations. I will always be grateful to the way Robert managed it all. He was very professional and understanding.

Prior to Robert, we had 2 other agents that could not get the job done. Robert's ability to stay focused on the task at hand is what got our house sold. I would recommend Robert to anyone, most likely aI will be using him again for my next house.

Robert helped me by my first home back in 2009. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. He stuck with me through the process every step of the way to ensure the house I was purchasing was a place I could call home. I would reccomend Robert to any first time buyers and even people looking to upgrade or down size their current properties. He will work for you through the end and will help you with every step of the process

We began the process of finding a home on the North Shore in April of 2010. The most difficult variable in the process was selling our house in Vermont. This took us quite some time (tough market). Robert stayed with us through the whole process, showing homes over @8months till we finall sold our house. Then, it was just a matter of another month till we made an offer on our new home in Ipswich. Robert's work ethic and patience, combined with his expertise and professionalism made an emotional, frustrating experience much easier to get through. I would recommend utilizing his service without second thought. Less ... More

Honest, resourceful, and hardworking, Robert will earn your respect with his patience, attention to detail, negotiating skills, and concern that you find the property that suits you. Successful enough and ethical, he doesn't need to sell you a property that won't meet your own particular needs.

My husband & I were first time home buyers...very green, nervous, excited and anxious. Looking back on our experience we are so grateful that Robert Bentley was our Realtor. He helped us with all of our questions, put our mind at ease and made the entire process of buying our first home manageable and memorable. We would not hesitate to recommend Robert to anyone!

Robert Bentley helped my husband and I purchase the new home we are building. He pursued our interests, was straightforward about our options, and has helped to make the process smooth and enjoyable. Robert has been attentive to a variety of issues that inevitably come up as a house is built, and I am consistently grateful he is representing us. This is my first experience buying a house, and Robert has taken every single one of my questions seriously. He is also well organized whenever we meet, which inspires my confidence that he takes care in the details of our transactions. He also has a good sense of humor, and it is a pleasure to do business with him. Robert will be listing our current home this spring, and I am looking forward to continuing our working relationship. I would enthusiastically recommend Robert to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

I'm happy to recommend Robert Bentley! He went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the smooth sale of my condo, in a very difficult market, and the purchase of my new home. He is a true professional, great with people, and works tirelessly on behalf of his clients.

Robert arranged a leisurely tour of eight homes we wanted to see in one afternoon. He repeatedly arranged visits to our final choice He negotiated for us the purchase of our new home and was in attendance guiding us through each step in the complicated process He consistently presented himself with good humor and aplomb and was available to us for all our questions. Robert Bentley proved to be more than we had expected of a real estate agent.

Let's start with the fact that he's a nice guy. You have to like the person you're working with and Robert is a genuinely nice human being. He listened to what both my wife and I wanted in a home and he showed us homes that had the features and locations we were interested in. It didn't take us long to find the home and location that we had been looking for years. Then, as our buyer's agent, he took us out of the always uncomfortable position of negotiating hard with the builder. He saved us nearly $60,000 off the original building quote by getting us the special features we desired included in our offer and for less than original asking price. I can't say enough about Robert. He is now listing our townhome so that he can now be our seller's agent. I've come to think of Robert as a friend and I know that he'll act in our best interest at every turn. Less ... More

I would highly recommend Robert. My house was listed with another agent, prior to switching to ReMax. For 6 months, the house was shown only 10 times and had no offers. After switching to Robert, he showed my house 4 timed, the first month and a half and convinced all of them to make an offer. My house was sold in 2 months. Robert is very aggressive and is very dedicated to selling your home. He has a very good method of advertising your home so people know exactly what to expect when seeing it. I would recommend highering Robert to sell any home. A++ Less ... More
