Some Highlights:

  • Buyer demand continues to outpace the supply of homes for sale which means that buyers are often competing with one another for the few listings that are available!
  • Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply needed to sustain a normal housing market.
  • Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.

What my clients are saying  

If you are considering moving to the High Desert, Rob is your guy! It is not by coincidence that he is dubbed the Realty Dude. Rob's real estate knowledge, professionalism, courtesy, responsiveness, negotiation skills, people skills, love of homes and willingness to go above and beyond makes the home buying process a lot less stressful and dare I say... enjoyable! He is the entire package, whether you are buying a home for the first time or a fourth time (like us), Rob is exactly what any home buyer needs. I have no doubt that He and his team will take good care of you... just as he did with us. He listened, got to know us, patiently and happily showed us as many homes as we wanted to see. Most importantly, he knew what we wanted and sold us a home that suited each and everyone of us. Don't hesitate, call Rob today!

Rob has a great base of knowledge of the area and was able to price our house accordingly. He was able to negotiate a fair price with minimal issues, and closed the sale quickly. Rob was easy to contact, very quick to respond to our needs/requests, and kept us up to date with the sales/negotiation process. I would highly recommend Rob St Onge as an agent.
