"Great guy! Really goes above and beyond. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. We were very picky on the home we wanted and he found it for us. We're all settled in our new home now and we couldn't be happier!" Logan

– Logan, February 2017

"It was our first time buying a house and he made everything easy. Step by step guidance and answered every question we had. I would recommend Robert to anyone who wants a stress free house buying experience." Shane & McKenna

– Shane & McKenna, October 2016

"My husband and I have worked with Robert twice. Once when we moved here from Australia and knew nothing about buying a home in the US, and another time recently when we purchased our first investment property. Both times Robert was super patient with us (taking us on several tours) and always had our best interest in mind. He took time to explain everything in detail and happily answered our (many) questions throughout both processes. He is prompt, professional, outstanding with details, has a wealth of knowledge in the real estate industry, is a market expert and a really personable guy in general. We would recommend him to anyone, and they can expect nothing but the absolute best experience!" Erica

– Erica, September 2016

"When my wife and I first started to look for a bigger home, we started out with an organization that we felt had very little time for us. Then we had a "AH-HA" moment. Why not contact the person who sold us the house we currently live in. So the rest in history...Robert Young is a true professional and a very polite and helpful person. He helped us along the way with advice, what to look for in a home and what inspections could be helpful in deciding if the house was right for us or could it be a money pit. Our family is happy with the purchase price, location, and neighborhood residents. Great job Robert Young." Michael

– Michael, July 2016

"Robert has been absolutely phenomenal! I can't recommend him more highly than I do. He has so much knowledge, expertise, and patience during this process. I wouldn't trust my real estate needs to anyone else but him!" Linda

– Linda, July 2016

"Robert is a great guy and had our back until the very day of closing. Even after a bad inspection result from one property, Robet was not only able to get us out of that property but also scheduled us for another tour the following week. We were able to find a property we are extremely happy with and we can't thank Robert enough." Jay

– Jay , July 2016

"We had a very rough time finding a home that worked for us but Robert continued to help us and we finally found the right home! With a few set backs due to inspections and contingencies he still was more than willing to continue to work with us. Very professional and knowledgeable. I really felt like he had our best interests in mind when working with other realtors, inspectors, banks, etc. He fought for us and had our back the whole time! Even after the sale he is keeping in touch and answering any questions or concerns that we have had. Great guy!" Jamie

– Jamie, July 2016

“Robert was professional & personable at all times. He knew the market and was happy to be a point of reference and pass that knowledge on. We had situations of multiple offers on properties and Robert was excellent at walking us through the various options and remaining professional & impartial at all times. I would completely be comfortable & happy to recommend Robert and actually have done so on a couple of occasions. Our experience though out the process was exceptional!!” Kristian & Erica

“Robert was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process. If anything came up Robert was very prompt in resolving. Everything was great! Amanda

“Overall impression working with an experienced Realtor who knows the area, Robert Young is detailed, customer oriented, friendly, and wonderful to work with. There were problems? If so, Robert was that good-I didn’t know of any issues and if something came up, he was already working on it.” Lisa

“Robert Young worked diligently with us to help us located just the right property for our retirement years. He listened carefully when we described the features we needed in a home, and then he skillfully sorted through scores of listings to pull up the ones that best met our needs. He was patient and perceptive as we toured these properties with him, pointing out both assets and liabilities. Once we found the ‘perfect’ property, Robert skillfully attended to all of the details necessary for a quick and problem-free closing. He is amazingly astute and professional, while also being friendly and fun. A real class act! We were especially pleased with how creatively Robert dealt with some unusual circumstances such as our living out-of-state and the fact that we planned to pay cash rather than taking out a mortgage. He also negotiated with the sellers for us to buy some of the furnishings in the condo, arranging a very satisfactory deal. Finally, he worked out an arrangement whereby the sellers would rent the condo from us for the first four months after closing since we are going to be in Florida for the winter. This will give the seller the opportunity to move out of the condo at a leisurely pace. Yes, we will definitely recommend Robert to anyone who is in need of a Realtor in the Cedar Rapids area, including my sister and brother-in-law. We feel confident that he will give them the same high-quality service that he gave us. We really cannot think of any way that Robert could have created a more positive experience that the one we had. He plans to walk through the condo with us one more time after the sellers move out at the end of March to make sure that all is in good order. We are appreciative of his outstanding service.” Stanley & Sharon

“It was amazing!! I couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable agent who was caring and an advocate for me! Robert made sure I was taken care of and that my best interest were his top priority.” Bobbie

“I wanted to send you a not to thank you for everything that you have done for us the last several months. Helping Tessa find a rental house was the beginning and I know she appreciated all of your help as did I. You were also great when it came to the purchase of this new home. You really stepped up to the plate by paying for our pod which I am guessing not all Realtors would have done. You made this process as smooth as you could and kept us notified all throughout the process as well. I do look forward to working with you in the future and will give your name out to anyone that is looking to buy/sell a home in this area. Thanks for everything. I would recommend Robert Young to anyone. With professionalism & honesty, our impression & experience was excellent.” Jamie & Tessa

“Robert Young is very knowledgeable and made our buying experience very easy. There were no real issues but Robert handled the details of the purchase and made it easy for us. Have already given my sister’s name and they have listed their home with him. Robert knows the ins and outs and I can’t imagine what he would need to do to be better at what he does.” Douglas & Mary

“Robert Young had excellent knowledge of the intricacies involved in buying a condo and he provided excellent service, in that a great deal of communication was needed and Robert kept me informed of each step along the way and explained the process to me in terms I could understand. Even when there was no progress, he would communicate that. Robert’s professionalism was impressive, especially in light of how difficult this transaction became. He personally could have done nothing more to create a positive real estate experience.” Elizabeth

“You are the best, we had a wonderful experience with you. He was very professional. The best part is, he updated us on each and everything both by writing & phone calls, all the way. We could not have asked for more. All we can say is “KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB.” Paul & Mary

“On Robert’s end, I think he did what he could. It was just frustrating with the length of the short sale on the seller’s end. This is the third time I have used Robert. You can tell him what you want and he does what it takes to deliver. Can’t think of anything I would change on his end. He checks in weekly to tell you what is going on.” Travis

“Robert Young’s knowledge and patience is an asset to your company. This is the second time he’s worked with us and it was a pleasure again. With the upmost respect for our concerns, Robert Young’s positive attitude and can do spirit made us feel confident everything would be taken care of. And it was! Yes, in fact we have. Robert handled my mom’s home purchase at the same time as our lot purchase. Robert nailed it out of the ballpark again!” Andrea & Korrey

“He was polite, took us around to look at different houses, took time to explain the house itself. He was very interested in what I was looking for in my price range. He had a lot of patience with me. He was great! He knows what He’s doing for sure. Thanks Robert.” Tracey

“My overall impression of the service and knowledge was exceptional. I look forward to working with Robert again. I’m not aware of any problems in my transaction but I’m confident Robert would have helped me through them. Absolutely, I’ve already passed his name on to a few people. Robert’s communication reliability, and advice was greatly appreciated! I honestly cannot think of anything that could have been better!” Tessa & Jamie

“We went into it not really knowing what we were doing and we received great guidance, thoughtfully and in our best interest. We thought Robert was fantastic.” Jessica & Dave

“The service and knowledge demonstrated was great. Robert was very informative and kept us in the loop on all transactions, very knowledgeable about the market. Overall we could not be happier. Robert was great to work with. He was very flexible with his schedule, never pushy about which home to buy. Always pointed out upsides and downfalls to the houses we saw. Everything was amazing, from our standpoint nothing needs/could have been improved.” Jason & Rachel

“The service was awesome. This is a new process for me. Robert Young was great explaining each process along the way. There were very few issues because Mr. Young was on top of everything all along the way, they were handled promptly and professionally.
