Bob was truly the best and made my first and hopefully only home buying experience as stress-free as possible. He was extremely responsive during the entire process and very honest and open about properties and areas I was looking into. He was always on my side working to make my house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Bob was that he was always more focused on answering my questions, giving me good advice, and finding homes that met not only my needs but also many of my wants more than he was on closing a deal. He wanted to be sure I loved the home before moving forward. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Bob! I am so happy!! Melissa C., St. Petersburg
“I would like to inform you my dealings with Bob was such an enjoyable experience. He was very professional and thorough. He told me not to be stressed about the sale of my condo as he would make it an easy transaction. He was right. Also, my condo went under agreement in 4-5 days, and he handled everything. I would highly recommend your agency and Bob to anyone. Thank you! Camille
I would highly recommend that all prospective home buyers and sellers in the Tampa Bay area contact Bob Hudgins of Hofacker and Associates, St. Petersburg prior to engaging in a business relationship with any realtor.
Bob recently completed the sale of my home in St. Petersburg. The home was vacant and I reside in Massachusetts complicating many of the aspects of the sale. Bob was present for all issues requiring attention on my house to ensure that the new owner was presented with a property that met their expectations. His commitment to the sale of my home required his presence at my home on many nights and weekends. Bob spent considerable time with me on the phone to ensure that he had a clear understanding of my expectations in the sale of the property. I had the confidence in Bob to make all decisions that would have a positive impact on the sale of the home.
I have personally owned 8 properties and have worked with realtors in the Mid Atlantic, Northeast and Midwest during my corporate career. I have never dealt with a long distance sale of a property.
Bob, you deserve special recognition and thanks from me in completing the sale. Jeff
