“I met Robert Ulmer in 2016 when he was assigned to me as my buying agent by USAA. The professionalism and attention to detail that he gave me and my needs was outstanding. I was a difficult person to deal with because I was so picky, but he was never annoyed and was always helpful. He was a real big help at getting me into my condo in a neighborhood plagued by foreclosures. I initially started to go through Redfin or a cheaper route to make and or save money, but then I thought you get what you pay for so I called Robert to handle my sell. Robert had my place sold in less than 48 hours. I was shocked at how quick it sold. So I'd suggest anyone to him. ”
Eric Allen, Memphis, Tennessee (Seller)
“Rob was fantastic! Undeniable local DC, MD, and VA knowledge. Punctual communication and great attention to detail. Rob is the type of agent you want looking over documents with you.”
William, DC (Buyer)
“He was gentle, and likable. He took time to go to any details. We have relied on him from the beginning to the end. ”
Duck-Hye Yang, Rockville (Buyer)
“Rob Ulmer was helpful throughout the process of selecting a property, applying for a mortgage, and closing on the property. He really went above and beyond what could possibly be expected, essentially doing the listing agent's job as well because that agent was frequently unresponsive to emails. As a first-time buyer, I consider myself lucky to have had such a conscientious realtor.”
Michael C, Washington DC (Buyer)
