Here is what some people are saying about Roberta's service...
We can’t thank Roberta enough for everything she has done for us! We are new to the area and Roberta really took us under her wing to help us find a great home in a great location. It was a stressful time for us, with our family living in two separate states, but she helped make the home buying process easier and more fun. She never made us feel rushed or pressured. She is always open to questions and if she doesn’t know the answer to something she will quickly find it (before and after buying a home!). We really appreciate her flexibility, support and advice and look forward to keeping in touch. Thank you Roberta!
Roberta is just awesome! We could not have found a better agent to guide us through buying our first home! Roberta is great with communication, honest, and patient. She always answered every question we had, no matter how silly the question may have been. She really does care about her clients- and it shows. As an example, Roberta brought us a nice "house warming" basket full of goodies, as well as a personal gift she made herself! (How many agents do that?) Through all the ups and downs of buying a home, Roberta was encouraging and positive 100% of the time, and that was nice to have. She is very prepared and has so many resources to make the process easy. From your checklist of things to do to her emails reminding you of your timeline, she really made home buying fast and easy! If anyone is looking for an awesome agent and new friend, send them to Roberta Kayne! Thanks for everything Roberta! Jesse Rhodes & Stacy Eberle, Lewis Center, OH

Roberta, MUCHAS GRACIAS! Thank you very much for your valuable time and for making our wish come true of buying our first house. You were very patient and drove us all over town until we finally decided for our perfect home. I will surely keep you in mind and we will refer you to whomever we know is thinking of buying a new house. Roberta Muchas Gracias y que Dios te bendiga.
Alex, Maria, Alex Jr. & Yael Flores, Commercial Point, OH
Roberta, I can't thank you enough for all your hard work in regards to the purchase of my first place! Through all the what ifs, I don't knows, maybes, and it's ok I guess, you were ever so patient and encouraging. I truly appreciate your dedication and focus. You were accommodating to my schedule and easily accessible. I loved all of the tips, timelines, and reminders along the way. They were so helpful since I had no clue what I was doing going into this. I truly feel that you were looking out for me and had my best interests at heart. I highly recommend Roberta to anyone looking for a wonderful home buying experience! Thank you so much! Afton Smith, Dublin, Ohio
We first met Roberta at a home buyer seminar. Roberta kept in touch with us until we were able to seriously start looking for a house. She understood our limited budget, requirements for school districts as well as general location, and sent us dozens of great houses to look at. Over the course of one month this spring we looked at just under 20 houses, and finally found our dream house. We take possession of our first home today only two months after we first started looking, and are so grateful for Roberta's expert guidance and assistance. Thank you so much for all your help, Roberta! Aaron and Jennifer Leeper, Hilliard, Ohio
Upon meeting Roberta and after a few discussions, I knew that I had found someone that had the experience and knowledge I needed as well as someone I could trust to guide me through the process. I had worked with other Realtors in the past, but none that had portrayed the confidence, loyalty, and perseverance that Roberta displayed. Imagine my surprise when I learned that she "only" has seven years experience in the business as I originally assumed through our conversations that it felt more like 15-20 years experience. Roberta showed me that she truly has a passion for her profession and as long as she stays in the business, I will use her for all of my property buying/selling needs in the future. I highly recommend using Roberta for all of your property realty needs. Thank you, Roberta!!! Mark Harvey, Columbus, Ohio
We were impressed with your methodical and structured way of working, giving us all the information and letting us take the decisions. Being a first time home buyer, I was particularly impressed with the time you took explaining all the nuances of buying a property. You were a true professional, not being judgemental, arranging to show us (numerous) properties that met our requirements! Thank you for all your help all along, before the purchase, during the closing and even afterwards. We would definitely recommend you to others. Regards,
Nat & Parimala Kallapadi, Dublin, OH
Roberta was wonderful in every aspect of the home-building process. She is a wonderful and dynamic person who is great to know in the home search/building process and also as a friend. She was always willing to answer all our questions and was available any time we needed her. Even though the home building process was our first and was also very stressful for us, Roberta was always there to lend an ear and also to put in her two cents when we needed it. She is a great resource, one you can depend on and she always had our best interests at heart. On many occasions, Roberta was always the one to contact us first when we had a question or concern in the building process- not the builder! You don't expect that from a Real Estate Agent! She has also continued to contact us periodically to see how we are doing in our new home. She is the best Agent we know and would recommend her to ANYONE! A choice to use any other Agent would truly be a mistake!
Thank you so much Roberta for being there for us when we needed you! We wish you all the best success as you have helped shape our future and will always be a part of our lives. Michael & Melissa Enriquez, Powell, Ohio

************ Buying a house was a new experience for my wife and I. The first time we met Roberta we knew immediately that she was an honest, professional, straight-forward person. Roberta will never push you to buy a property you cannot afford. She was very patient with us. I am still amazed at Roberta's speedy services. She can schedule home viewings quickly, even with very short notice. She arrived at the viewings on time or early and was not afriad to give her honest opinion if asked. We looked at a lot of properties and never once felt pressured to hurry and make a decision. Roberta wanted us to find what we wanted- her goal was to fit us with a home that was exactly right for us. Even after we moved into our new home, Roberta stayed in touch. She called to make sure we were happy with everything. We will definitely be contacting Roberta again in the future! If you are looking for a Realtor that is honest, professional, courteous, considerate and willing to go that extra mile, you don't need to look any further. Thank you Roberta!
Azeez & Cathy Okunlola, Delaware, OH
Finally I get around to thanking you for all your valuable assistance to us.... You worked very hard for us, and we do appreciate it.....I'm ranting on about all this because after the time we spent together I feel you're interested in what we're doing in this condo - as a friend. Is that not rare in this day and age? To feel the person you meet in a business setting cares beyond the time they have to spend to close the deal? You have a steady, quiet quality of interest that made us feel like friends. Mel and Willie Ehrlich, Dublin, Ohio
After dealing with a few other Realtors prior to you, you were a godsend.The commitment you gave to our needs was refreshing. You went out of your way in every aspect to help us, from our decisions right down to the hundreds of miles you drove. Any questions we had that needed answered, you made sure we got the answers and got them quickly and to us;that is priceless. Roberta, we could not have found a better Realtor for our needs. You were outstanding in every area, prompt and caring and very knowledgeable. You are a very special Lady with unmeasurable class. We will definitely recommend you to friends and family.
Lori and Mike Thaxton & Becky Pyle, Baltimore, OH
I don't know how to express just how grateful I am for you. Thank you so much for all of your work and concern, and care and time that you have given to my family. I am so thankful that you were my Realtor. I don't think I could have made it through this if it were anyone else. Thank you for being so patient and understanding. You have been an immense encouragement and help to me and I am so grateful. You have been an angel in my life. Thank you so much! Erin Roman, Powell, Ohio (moved out of state )
Roberta, it was great working with you! Thanks for all you've done. Your advice and reassurance throughout the process helped my comfort level. We rate you a 10 - Most of the anxiety was taken off my shoulders, your explanation of the processes helped keep me informed throughout. You showed considerable commitment to service during a particularly difficult personal time for you. That made me feel important. I would also pass your name on to others. Rob & Jenn Slagle, Hilliard, Ohio
Roberta, We will remember you as someone who went above and beyond the norm to help us out in a difficult situation. After languishing on the market for over two years (with another real estate company), you were able to take charge and close the deal in a few months! You are the first and only person we would recommend for real estate transactions in the Columbus area. You did a great job for us in a market that was down and in an area where there was a lot of competition! Thanks ever so much! Jack & Ann Petro, Raleigh, North Carolina
Roberta, We could never thank you enough for all your help, care and work. Thank you for helping us find the best house. We're all VERY happy here. And thank you for helping us get out of a bad situation. We're so thankful for your kindness, understanding and professionalism. You recommended a great inspector and lender, and you made the entire home buying process very smooth for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We're very happy about the house and happy about your services. Come over for coffee ANY TIME! ............ Your BEST clients. Lorani, Ian, Cecelia & Isabel Best
