"Norbert has been a life saver many times over for my family! He has represented us in three (!) real estate transactions in Sonoma county since 2005. To be honest, I was very naive about this business and I didn't realize how important your pick in agents could be. I've had experience with at least three other agents, and he has been by far the best. I consider myself to be very thrifty and careful, and yet I almost drowned myself in turmoil trying to sell my own house. I called Norbert and he jumped right in, untangled the mess, and got me almost $100k more than I could have gotten myself. After that I never went back to anyone else, including myself! The devil is always in the details, and his vast experience (30+ years!) means he doesn't flinch when sticky stuff comes up. He is always graceful with "the other party", openly and honestly empathic, and expert in the fine art of request and assertion. He was even graceful when I needed a reality check. This market can be CRAZY but it doesn't have to make you crazy. Norbert makes the process clear and clean. I'd never work with anyone else!"

"I just wanted to thank you again for helping us buy our first acreage. It truly is a wonderful place, beyond what we hoped for. You were a pleasure to work with and the driving force that made everything go so smooth. It was so neat to get your assistance, considering you helped my mom and dad both get their own dream homes. From the very beginning you were working so hard to get us all sorts of information about this property. You printed stacks of water test info, soil perk tests, owner information and many other valuable documents from the very first day. The previous realtor wouldn't even walk us through the land none the less print us any information. He was too "busy" to help us. You were encouraging and extremely knowledgable. You helped time all of the interactions perfectly. The paperwork alone would have been overwhelming without your detailed guidance. What impressed us most was how you helped me save over 25% of the original listed price. Not only do we have one of the best ocean views in sonoma county, our water is pristine and our land is fertile. Finally we are cultivating our dream of living off of our land.
Thank you for being an amazing realtor. You are our hero Norbert!"
"When I first decided to buy a house I was a blabbering, know-nothing in all matters real estate. Now I own a home and feel like a shrewd, savvy real estate mogul. Somewhere in between, I made the incredibly wise decision of asking Norbert to be my real estate agent. Shopping for houses was fun, and his knowledge of real estate was key in finding the right place. When it came to offers and negotiations, he was a ninja. I'd recommend him to anyone except my mortal enemies. I'm sure I've worn out the phrase by now...oh well... there's no other way to say it, thanks Norbert! "
