To whom it may concern. My wife and I have recently purchased a home with the assistance of your associate Robert Sykes. Too often people like Rob go unrecognized for the services that they provide to the purchaser of a home. The hassle with lenders, the plethora of paperwork etc. can be overwhelming. Due to Rob?s timely attention to detail all went smoothly. We do not want Robert Sykes to go unrecognized for his services to us. From the beginning Rob was very professional and perceptive of our needs and what we were looking for. Rob was not at all a pushy sales person. He was very courteous to us at all times. Even after finding the place we chose to spend the rest of our lives in, he was very understanding and helpful through the inspection of the home and everything that the underwriters were pushing for prior to closing. We do not know if you recognize associates for this type of service or not but Rob has bent over backwards to meet all of our needs and we would like to see him recognized for his services. What a valuable asset to your agency. Thank you for your consideration. Jim and Terri Heck 3960 Lewisberry Rd. Lewisberry, Pa 17339 Less ... More

As first time home buyers we were very thankful to have Rob on our side to help us every step of the process. He made the home buying experience very easy! He was very knowledgeable, listened to our requests, and would share his insights. He responded to any questions almost immediately. He was very patient and did not pressure us on making any decisions until we were ready. Overall it was a great experience and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

All in all, a truly wonderful experience. I was a first-time homebuyer with absolutely no prior knowledge, and Rob was able to not only show me some great homes that all fit my needs, but also help me to navigate the process of buying a home. It is quite evident that he has many years of experience, which helped to compensate for my lack thereof. Moreover, his availability was awesome, and he was happy to work around my slightly crazy work schedule. I wish I could give 6 stars!

Hello home buyers, I just wanted to let you know that how right agent can make big difference in home buying process. We bought our first home through Rob recently. As we all know how home buying can be very hectic and confusing, Rob guided us through out the process step by step. We asked lot of questions and every time he fulfilled our enthusiasm by his knowledge and expertise. The thing impressed me most that his convincing approach rather than pushing approach. Without him I would not be able to reach final conclusion and keep wasting my time to look around. We are very happy with our purchase and having him as our Realtor. I would definitely recommend Rob to anyone who is looking to buy their first home or 10th home. Thanks Rob! Less ... More

Rob is a very honest and knowledgeable real estate buyers agent that helped me and my fiance purchase our 1st home. Right from the beginning, he was straight forward with us and gave us advice as if we were his friends, not client. He walked us through the buying process thoroughly. At one point, we decided to take a break from house hunting after not being able to find a place, and Rob was very understanding. He did not pressure us at all. He simply told us to contact him again once we were ready again. When we were ready again, we picked up right where we left off and eventually found a place. Rob took us to see each home that we expressed interest in. It was probably after 20 something homes that we found one that we liked. He walked us through the Contracts and paperwork and made sure we understood everything. After we had settled, some issues arose with the condo that we had purchased (Rob had nothing to do with the issue arising). Rob gave me his honest advice and referred me to a lawyer that he knew. Rob came with me to meet the lawyer for our consultation. We continue to talk on the phone and text about the situation, and he continues to give me his advice. All this was done on his own time as he's not getting anything out of it. One thing that I really liked about Rob was that he was always available, either through phone/text or email. He was always responsive whether it be early in the morning or really late in the evening. He always made time for me. Although Rob was my real estate agent, he has grown to be a personal friend. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who's looking to buy a home. Less ... More

Rob Sykes made our first time home buying experience great! We were relocating to the area from out of state and strapped for time. Thankfully we were able to find a great home fast because of our great realtor. We sat down and identified what amenities we wanted in a home and then he had house tours scheduled the rest of the time we were in the area. He walked us through each step of the process and was very prompt with replies, etc. I believe a lot of those qualities are from his past business experiences. Basically, if you chose Rob as your realtor you won't be disappointed :) Less ... More

As first time home buyers, we feel genuinely lucky to have had Rob on our side. No matter the cost of the home that you're shopping for, Rob really makes your wants and needs his priority. The whole process can be overwhelming, or at least I've been told it can be, but Rob made it feel like a cake walk. I would highly suggest following his advice concerning lenders and inspectors, but he's not at all pushy when it comes to these areas. Rob really does care about seeing his clients happy, and he certainly went above and beyond for us. We're definitely going to miss having regular contact with him! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
I had a deadline and a dream. The deadline was move before being stuck in another lease for another whole year. My lease was within 1 month of needing to be signed again. I had been looking prior to contacting Rob, but had lost a lot of time dealing with someone who couldn't give me the attention I needed and lacked the dedication. The dream was to find the best place for me and my family to call home. A place where there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy each others company, while providing enough privacy for my teenage girls from the younger children. When I told Rob what we had to work with and the time I had to make this happen he was very realistic with me. He never tried to discourage me, but was straight forward. We started discussing what it was I was looking for. He went straight to work and began setting me up with what I had already decided to look at, as well as some of the properties that came up in the build search with my criteria. LESS then one month later I was settling on a home that I loved, it was better then what I was looking for. Remaining curteous he always asked if it was okay for him to contact me at night, the important point here is that he worked on my dream late into many evening hours. His dedication, responsiveness, proffessionalism, and extensive knowledge all helped make this nerve wracking journey a calm, positive one for me and my family. I would (and have already) highly reccomend contacting Rob for any and all real estate needs. I know if I should need anything from a real estate professional again Rob will be my first point of contact. Less ... More

Rob was the most helpful, knowledgeable and caring agent I have ever worked with. The road to the closing on my home was a long and bumpy one and Rob was there every step of the way, he truly deserves every star on the 5 I rated him and he is really a 10 in his field.

Rob blew away our expectations of a real estate agent! My husband and I were first-time buyers, so we were looking for someone who would walk us through the process, answer our many questions, and provide expert advice along the way. Rob was instrumental in helping us navigate the experience from viewing houses to closing on one we loved. In addition to being professional and helpful, Rob is a kind and friendly person who is easy to get along with. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a personalized home buying or selling experience. Less ... More

I had a great experience working with Rob. I began my Zillow home search in March of 2014 and Rob provided me with a quick response based on my initial email. He then set up a meeting with me to discuss the entire process of buying a home (as I was a new home buyer) and gathered details of what I am looking for in a new home. After this meeting he continued sending me emails of homes that fit my search criteria. Shortly after he created the search (in about 2 weeks), we began viewing various homes. During these showings he also gave many pointers of what to look for in a new home. Once I found a home of interest, Rob did everything he could to get me to visit the home not only once but twice. Once I agreed to move forward, he explained the process to me every step of the way. I would definitely recommend Rob as a realtor. He portrayed great knowledge of the Harrisburg area, provided me the expertise I needed as a new home buyer, and is always available to answer and questions I have in the process. Less ... More

Mr. Sykes is an exceptional Realtor. His knowledge of the Harrisburg/Lancaster/York area, and years of experience on the real estate industry make him a terrific choice to buy or sell your home. He was not only knowledgeable, but friendly and accommodating. Furthermore, Rob is able to somehow be both business partner, mentor, and friend without blurring the lines - and that is a rare feat these days. Should we ever have need of a Realtor again, we will call Rob first.

Rob is super easy to deal with. He gave me good advice and kept me informed on what was expected, and what I needed to take care of. He even went over to my house to let the water meter reader because I had to work! I would recommend Rob to anyone selling or buying. I did both with my house and If I wasn't moving out of state, I would use him for my new house too. Thanks Rob

Rob Sykes was a pleasure to work with when going through the stressful process of buying our first home. He walked us through each step, explaining real estate jargon in terms that my wife and I could easily understand in order to keep up and make educated decisions. If we had questions, he was always available to answer quickly if not immediately. With his guidance, we ended up buying our first home and saving a ton of money. Not to mention that we ended up settling on the home at thousands less than it was appraised at. Buying a home is stressful, especially for first timers. Rob made the process run smoothly, and we bought our home with confidence. Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home in the future. Less ... More

Rob worked with me to help get my house sold quickly and exceeded my expectations in making that happen. He answered every phone call or email I had questions about very quickly and was very patient with me as I found this to be quite a stressful and emotional process. Rob knows the market very well and has a great feel for who his target 'audience' would be for specific properties.

Rob and I came to know each other over a course of time as my wife and I set out to accomplish our goal of buying a second home. He took the time to meet with us and try to understand what it was exactly that we were looking for. He was honest and forth right when dealing with us. I think the extra effort came as he not only dealt with us from a business stand point but he tried very hard to get to know us the people he was helping. In the end Rob was instrumental in helping us achieve our goal to buy our dream. I would definelty recommend him if anyone was looking for a first or as in our case a second home to buy. Less ...

Rob Sykes is an amazing Realtor. We have used him twice in the last 5 years to buy two homes and sell another. He is very responsive and walked us through the buying and selling process. He made every transition very easy for us. He gave us great advice along the way and was very straight forward when it came to negotiations. He has lived in the area for a long time so he understands the local market and he uses this knowledge to the advantage of his clients.

Working with Rob was an absolute pleasure. Being a first time homebuyer, I was nervous and skeptical about a few parts of the home buying process and he completely put me at ease. He provided me with more than enough knowledge of what to expect step by step. I would definitely refer my family and friends in the homebuying market to him in a second.

I was randomly paired with Rob Sykes when I started "house hunting" in 2007. He patiently answered every question (teaching me significantly along the way), gave me space to research and think about all of my options, and provided valuable insight throughout the entire process. Rob was my agent for the purchase of my townhome in 2007, as well as the listing and selling agent for my husband's townhome in 2011. Rob is willing to meet during non-traditional work hours, and always responded to phone calls and emails rapidly. Rob has several contacts in the Harrisburg area, and connected me with a mortgage company (that I also highly recommend!) with whom I purchased and then re-financed my townhome. I trust and respect Rob immensely, and highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation and information during their listing or purchasing process. As long as I'm considering real estate in the Central PA region, I will not work with another agent (and if I ever move from the area, I'll surely look to Rob for guidance then, too!). Less ... More

Rob was my second real estate agent because the first one was not responsive and couldn't help me find anything in the area I wanted. Before we even met face to face, Rob spent a considerable amount of time learning just what I was looking for. By the time we met, he knew what I wanted and was able to show me the houses I wanted to see. When the house I loved came on the market, Rob negotiated a price for me that made my dream of owning a home possible.

He was always available for touring homes and really represented our interests well in the search process.

When hoping to find a nice home in Harrisburg, I was directed to Rob Sykes and I was very happy with that decision.. He went out of his way (several times) to locate just the right place for us... He was very knowledgeable of the areas of interest and drove us all over the Dauphin County or wherever we wanted... I am sure we probably gave him a rough time about what or where would be best, but in the long run, Rob knew what we needed and got a great deal for me.... I would highly suggest him for any personal property investments.. He did not only find me the right place, with the right price but I would like to think of him as a friend I would call on for my next property. He has all "the right stuff" to make the deals for you.. his knowledge is golden.. .. Less ... More
