When beginning my search for a home I asked a co-worker if he knew of a good realtor. (I’ve often found that personal recommendations are far better than random web searches.) My co-worker informed me that he had actually just finished buying and selling with Rob Walton. His comment to me was, “Yeah, he’s pretty good”, and coming from this often understated co-worker that meant that he thought Rob was very impressive. Not knowing what to expect, I took the information and tempered my enthusiasm as is my custom. From the introductory email all the way through the post-closing arrangements I can now clearly and confidently say that my co-worker was 100% correct. Rob is AWESOME! The rating scale above is accurate. Rob knows the area. He’s familiar with every part of Raleigh and its surrounding areas. He spent four months, being very patient, and venturing all over to help me find my new home (amazing place). Being a first time home buyer I needed someone that could guide me through this complex process and provide needed advice and good judgement. Rob definitely understands the legal side of the business and makes sure his clients make the best decisions by arming them with any information they want. He uses technology to maintain an insanely high level of responsiveness. Concerning negotiation, he’s the guy you want on your side. He’ll let you know when he thinks it’s a bad deal, when the seller is being too slow, when you should ask for more, when you should step away, and when it’s time to make your offer. He’s assertive and aggressive on your behalf while remaining patient and being a great listener when it comes to you as the client. If anyone is looking for an agent in the Triangle, you’ve got to call this guy. Let’s put it this way, I’m actually sad that the home search is over because Rob is just that great to work with. If I or anyone I know ever needs a realtor then there’s no question about my recommendation: Rob Walton.
Rob’s service and attention to detail is unbelievab
My wife and I both bought and sold our home with Rob and were very impressed with his knowledge and professional services. He was very responsive and did not push us to go beyond our financial constraints. Could not have been a better person to work with!
Rob is the best! His efforts got us multiple offers within the first week of listing. He was always available when we needed him and always put our interests first.
Rob is the best realtor ever!! Helped us sell and buy, and aside from doing a fabulous job, he is a great person and makes the process enjoyable(it is possible!). He also listens to his clients, values their choices and preferences, etc. I can’t say enough good things. You won’t regret working with Rob!
Rob Walton is a man of high character and competence. He brings tremendous ability and wisdom to every business relationship, with a heart that desires to serve his clients. My family and I were blessed to work with Rob in purchasing our last home. We cannot recommend him more highly.
I am an agent in Greenville, SC and referred my son to Rob to buy a home in Raleigh. Rob was great to work with and helped him thru the whole first time homebuyer process from beginning to end! Thanks Rob!
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rob. I felt like Rob always put our interests first and foremost. He was always frank with us, which was much appreciated and helped us make a great decision.
I would recommend Rob in a heartbeat. I was referred to him by a friend, and it didn’t take long to see why. He listened to the things I was looking for in my first home; he responded quickly to any communication; he was flexible with my schedule in looking at houses; and he was very knowledgeable in many areas such as things I would need to know to maintain my house. We were working with a very tight time frame and the entire process was as stress-free as I could have hoped it be.

We were referred to use Rob through our old realtor in Florida when we moved from out of state to the Raleigh area. We can not recommend him enough!!! We have used a lot of realtors in our day to buy, sell, and rent property. He scored leaps and bounds above all of them combined. We have a lot of special needs that he dealt with in a very professional and helpful way. We needed a house that had not had any pets in it, no mold, and newer due to a lot of allergies. That’s a pretty hard thing to find plus we were pretty indecisive too. He was so patient with us and met us at multiple properties multiple times with a good attitude. He drove all over creation as well and had a very flexible schedule. And the best part….he picks up the phone!!! If you call him or email him, he either picks up or contacts you back in an hour, usually in 15 minutes. Another thing we loved about him is that he’s got a lot of common sense about buying properties that will have a good resale value, along with finding potential problems with properties, and even helped us figure out furniture placement. We can’t recommend him enough!!! He has earned life long customers out of us!!
To say that Rob was a great resource is an understatement. As a first time home buyer, Rob was an invaluable asset. He guided us through the process and helped us feel comfortable every step of the way. He went above and beyond whenever possible and we can’t thank him enough! We would recommend Rob to anyone in the area without hesitation.
I was referred to use Rob through my company’s relocation company when I moved from out of state. He was very flexible in meeting me all around the area and even met at properties I had found online that he probably knew I wouldn’t like! As stated by another reviewer, “he picks up the phone!!! If you call him or email him, he either picks up or contacts you back in an hour, usually in 15 minutes.” This is true. His responsiveness was amazing. He was very solid on the advice he gave and often gave insight into the flaws of a property (resale, neighbors, etc) that I would overlook because I was in awe with a certain feature and couldn’t look past it. I will definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone!
Rob was recommended to me from a co-worker and that was the best thing We could have hoped for! Rob and I spoke on the phone and discussed what we were looking for and he immediately went to work helping us look. On our first outing to look we found what we were looking for and had Rob made our offer for us. He did an awesome job and helped guide us on the offer. The process was smooth and his handling of the entire process made it stress free for us. I would Highly recommend Rob Walton to anyone that wants the best customer service possible when looking for a home!!
Rob was invested in our home-buying process every step of the way. He stayed on top of the builder and seller’s agent to get everything done and ready for a smooth closing. He is a hard worker with a great personality. We will definitely use Rob again if he’s around for our next home-buying venture!
When I was a first time home buyer, Rob went above and beyond to make sure I had everything
Rob Walton is a man who puts the “Service” in “Full Service Real Estate Agent”. My wife and I used him for both selling our previous home and buying our current one. Rob was very good at providing updates as things progressed and staying in touch even during a few periods that were quieter during the process. Rob worked tirelessly to market our previous home and get it SOLD. We sold our previous home around 3 months ahead of the market average for the neighborhood. Throughout both the buying and selling process, Rob was an excellent negotiator, trying to get the most out of our previous home and working the best deal on our new one. My wife may be Rob’s biggest advertiser because we were so happy with his service. In addition to working tirelessly, my wife and I never had to go to his office to sign papers, Rob always came to us! We have recommended him to many friends and will continue to do so when we hear of a friend entering the market from either side.
Rob was great when we sold our house in Wake Forest. Very responsive, innovative and we were satisfied with the end result. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
My wife and I were clients of Rob’s when we purchased our home in May 2012. As first time home-buyers, there was much about the home buying process that we were unfamiliar with. Rob is extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented and did a fantastic job guiding us through the process and we were able to completely trust that Rob had our best interests at heart. We have since recommended him to several of our friends. If all goes according to plan, it will be a long time before we work with Rob again, however, that only because we are so happy with the home he helped us purchase.
Tons of attention to his clients needs and wants truly set him apart from the pack. His willingness to help and offer advice, resources, contacts, and friendship make his service irreplaceable as a Realtor. Anyone who chooses Rob will find a home that fits all their needs and wants with ease.
Awesome, experienced, honest. What else could you ask for?
Worked with Rob on selling our current home and finding our new one. He was great to work with. Our home listing was great, and he was very patient working with us to find the new one in a difficult market.
We put Rob through a lot when we were searching for our home – telling him we wanted one thing when we really wanted another. He was extremely patient with us and expertly helped us find the perfect townhome. Highly recommended!
