Testimonials for Rob Marken

  • Jeff Smith

    Rob really was a very, very good realtor. He was patient, kind, and thorough in all his dealings. I'm amazed at his patience as we looked at house after house and even put in many offers (which he did substantial work on), all to no avail. He was always upbeat and confident something would come up for us. I never once heard a word of discouragement of complaint. Rob is a true professional and an all around good guy. I certainly would recommend him as a top notch realtor and would not hesitate to use him again should the occasion arise. He gets a five star rating from us.

  • Peggy Miller

    Rob is an excellent realtor, with a lot of energy and real experience with the Central Oregon Market. He did a great job listening to what we were really looking for and helping us find it. Ours was a complicated purchase, but Rob helped us throughout the process and was really patient as we coordinated funding and purchasing with our tricky schedule. We wouldn't think of purchasing more property in Central Oregon without Rob's help and guidance. We would recommend Rob unreservedly to anyone seeking an excellent realtor.

  • Duane Zingale

    It was a pleasure and joy to work with rob. He helped me enter into a world I knew limited amount about. He understood the market and helped me get into an amazing home and stay away from that which would not be a good fit. I'm in a wonderful home thanks to his trustworthy guidance. It's good to have someone help who understands real estate.

  • Dylan Wetherill

    I trusted Rob and Michelle to assist in the purchase of property and they did a wonderful job. Im thankful for their help

  • Donald and Pauline Sandretzky

    We were shopping in general for an acreage with specifics as we were looking for a home base for the remainder of our earthly journey.Our contractor recommended Rob Marken as honest and capable. I hadn't ever met Rob but my late husband had worked with him in some measure so I was unsure but I trusted my contractor's word. Rob worked with us without any pressure and kept us in ideas of our specifics while we kept shopping also. One day my current husband found this home ourselves, but when we called Rob with the request to see it, he followed us every step of the way being available to answer questions, trouble shoot, and/or lead us to the proper resource for needed information. When closing day came he seemed as happy for us as though it was what he was purchasing for his famiy. We plan to request his services again and/or recommend him to others.

    On my home purchase Rob Marken was Highly professional, great on the follow up. Did what he would say he would do. Honest broker. Would use again

  • Jill Sauter

    Rob had his work cut out trying to work with us in selling our property. He kept calm and respectful. Selling our house through a divorce must be hard. Felt sorry for Rob, but he kept calm and tried his best to be respectful to both of us. His Docu Sign makes being in another state easy to sign important papers. Rob is very optimistic. He is positive and believes in his expertise. We bought our house from him, and now 20 years later, have it listed with him.

  • Tracy Milton

    Rob has been GREAT listing house through his reality. He has been very prompt in any questions or changes that have been needed to change. He is a respectful & thoughtful person through the house selling. I will recommend him to anyone that needs to sell. Thanks for EVERYTHING Rob!

  • Alicia Anderegg

    Working with Rob has been so easy and painless. We purchased a commercial property with the help of Rob, and we were so pleased with the experience that he is now helping us buy income properties. I love that he is always available when I have a question, or a concern about something, and is very patient even when we have viewed too many listings to count!!

  • Jeff Moore

    A hard working guy you can trust to get the job done. I use him all the time.
