"I could not be more satisfied with Bob and his team in this transaction. I wanted to buy a home that came for sale, but never thought I would get it, because on the first weekend there were 16 offers. Bob knew how to prepare my offer and present it in such a way that the Seller accepted it over the other 15 offers. I am not sure whether I was the highest bidder, but I believe Bob presented my offer, so that it was the most attractive to the Seller. The rest of the transaction was smooth and I received a high level of communication - always knowing where we were in the process and what to expect next. I am convinced that if I did not have Bob and his team representing me, I would not have gotten my house. Thank you, Bob!"

"From the first meeting with Bob we realized we made the right choice. Gave us a marketing plan and mad eseveral suggestions that would make the proprty more appealing to the type of buyer who he thought would be interested in the property. Thisgwg were going great until we found mold and issues with wter draining in the back yard. What could have been a disaster for us. Bob and his team were great. They gave us some suggestions and hooked us up with contractors who took care of the problems at a very reasonle price. Bob's team was upbeat and could not have been nicer or more helpful. The went above and beyound what I would ever expect from a real estate office. I have told my freinds and former neogbors in Arlington Bowes RE is the place to go. This was my parents home of almost 60 years and my first time dealing with an agent in Arlington. I have bought and sold a number of homes, outside this area, and I have never had the professional service that I recieved from Bowes RE in Arlington. I guess you get the picture, they are the best."

"Mr. Bowes was extremely professional and knowledgable regarding the advice he provided both in the steps leading up to listing our home and the advice he provided once offers were received. We could not be more satisfied with his and his firm's service in the listing and sale of our home. WE would highly recommend his firm to our friends."
