Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

"Rob is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with"

Rob is the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with (and I’ve bought and sold a lot of houses). He is thorough, organized, a wise negotiator, VERY knowledgeable about Silver Lake, and a genuinely kind and thoughtful person. I discovered him by googling online and finding that he had by far the most sales and the highest reviews of anyone. I interviewed him along with several other agents, but there was no contest. I had invested a lot in my house, and Rob understood and appreciated that. He recommended that I get a pre-inspection to be sure that there would be no last minute surprises. This turned out to be a critical success factor in the sale of the house because the few things that needed attention were all in great shape. He suggested a top notch designer/stager to add accents and pieces that made a huge difference, but was reasonably priced. He brought in an excellent photographer, whose photos were of “wow” quality. And, he made a super attractive brochure. His enthusiasm for the quirky nature of my house and his understanding of how to pitch that to clients was remarkable. He definitely doesn’t have a “fast selling” approach. Instead, his low key confidence and knowledge of both architecture and the neighborhood (where he lives) made all the difference. Lastly, he has an amazing following on Instagram and other social media as well as a lovely team that fills in for him if he needs back up. I can’t recommend Rob strongly enough. He is the BEST!

"If there's a Rob Kallick Fan Club, sign me up as Treasurer."

If there’s a Rob Kallick Fan Club, sign me up as Treasurer. Rob is just great, full stop. He has impeccable taste, is an easy hang, and is VERY good at his job. Buying a house with Rob is like consulting a friend you trust implicitly, who knows a lot more than you do, but isn’t a jerk about it. He’s as cool a cucumber as it gets – he leads you through the truly terrifying process of buying a house like he’s leading a meditation class. Rob made the process so pleasant that I was almost disappointed when I closed on my house so quickly! …Almost. I hope I make more money so I can work with Rob again someday. If you’re buying or selling a house on the Eastside, there’s no one better.

"HIRE ROB TO BE YOUR AGENT!"

I love Rob Kallick! Rob was recommended to me by a dear friend. He helped me find my very first home, then three years later, he helped me and my new husband sell it… for a lot more money! Rob is so cool, calm, and is so great at walking you through the whole crazy process of buying/selling a home. SELLING: Rob was smart and knew the market/neighborhood (glassell park) and was strategic on the listing price. Because we priced it “right”, i had multiple offers and ended up getting a large chunk over asking. I saw time and time again, people listing their home “high” hoping to make as much as the neighbor down the street, but people aren’t as interesting in putting bids on a home that is priced above market value. I saw this firsthand! Rob’s photographer, whoever she was, did an INCREDIBLE job with the photos, adding so much to the marketability of our home. HIRE ROB TO BE YOUR AGENT! That is all 🙂

"Rob is the best agent in town."

Rob is the best agent in town. He far exceeded our expectations every step of the way in both selling and buying our homes. He helped us with a rather complex transaction as we needed to sell and buy within a very tight timeframe. What could have been an extremely stressful time was made easy due to Rob’s keen knowledge of the local market, cool and calm demeanor, incredible responsiveness, and great relationships with other agents. The house we were selling had never looked better thanks to Rob’s incredible photographer, and we were extremely pleased with the sale price which was way above asking. With Rob’s help, we were also able to secure the purchase of our new home in an extremely competitive market. That is no small feat as we had previously lost out on 5 other homes when using another agent in the purchase of our first home a few years earlier. You should feel very lucky to have heard about Rob. I recommend you stop looking at other agents and call him right now!

"Rob was cool, calm and collected. He is real professional who clearly loves his work."

We went into this process following a very difficult real estate endeavor. Rob was cool, calm and collected. He is real professional who clearly loves his work. He worked his ass off, kept us calm and just handled everything. We got significantly more money than we listed the home for and Rob had great advice throughout the negotiating process. I highly recommend Rob and would absolutely use him again.

"Rob is a pro, knows this market inside and out and is someone we'd absolutely sign up with again."

Rob – thank you so very much for helping us with the sale of our home!!!

I first met Rob in 2016 when my husband and I were interested in selling our Silverlake home.  He was patient and answered all questions thoroughly.  We decided to hold off on selling our home and when 2017 rolled around, we felt it was time so we contacted Rob.

We didn’t realize what an ordeal it would be getting our house show ready – purging, fixing, painting, moving and staging.  As daunting as it was, Rob helped us through the various stages in a way that made the whole process feel comfortable and not stressful. The thing we appreciated most about Rob was his knowledge of the local housing market and the easy going, straightforward way of explaining things to us…no hard sell, just very even-keeled, unfailingly nice and always accessible. We got an offer over asking and got through escrow without any drama, and everything turned out pretty much exactly like he said it would. Rob is a pro, knows this market inside and out and is someone we’d absolutely sign up with again.

"Rob could not have done a better job in helping me to purchase my first home. "

Rob could not have done a better job in helping me to purchase my first home. He is smart, laid back and was always extremely nice and patient with the numerous questions I threw his way during the entire process. In short, I feel lucky to have found such a great, classy realtor.

It took me a few months to find the right house. During this period Rob showed me multiple listings and was always honest with me when I’d ask for his take on the properties. When I finally found the right house, Rob helped to set up all of the inspections and made buying the house as simple and painless as possible.

If you’re looking for a fun, knowledgable, and trustworthy realtor in Los Angeles, don’t hesitate to give Rob a call.

"Rob was just as cool-headed, personable, had-working, smart and knowledgeable as a seller's agent as he was when we bought the house in 2013. "

When work took our family back to the East Coast, we ended up having to sell our home in Silverlake from 3,000 miles away, and we were so happy to have someone we knew and trusted to get the job done.  We had been renting the house out while we were gone, and Rob worked with the property manager to make sure everything ran smoothly for the photographs, (long and crazy) open houses, inspections, etc.  He was just as cool-headed, personable, had-working, smart and knowledgeable as a seller’s agent as he was when we bought the house in 2013.  We feel great about the sale and love that everything was handled so well and with such great communication without our even having to be there in person.  Truly, the best possible experience.

We even took Rob’s recommendation for a real estate agent in Brooklyn — and that turned out great, too!

"Rob was great about understanding our style and what we were looking for."

We knew Rob “from the internet” a bit before we started showing up at this open houses. It also didn’t hurt he was already a friend of friends, so we felt comfortable with him from the beginning. As first time home-buyers, we ramped up our search over the period of several years, and we started getting more serious and having him show up at the houses we were most interested in. This was during the Highland Park area boom, when we were competing against 30 other offers, houses going for $100k+ over asking, and with no appraisal contingencies. Rob was great about understanding our style and what we were looking for. He helped us zero in on the mid-century style houses we were after. When we were serious about a fixer-upper, he helped us really think through what it would mean for us. He had us consider houses we normally wouldn’t to help broaden our search. A couple days after we came back from Mexico and getting engaged, we found a house in Adams Hill we wanted to move on. Rob was there every step of the way, and had our best interests in mind. He had all the right contacts to help us hustle on inspections, and already had a good working relationship with the selling agent. He made himself readily available to us, and answered even our stupidest questions. He even let us bounce renovation ideas off of him, and gave some great tips based on his own home renovation experience. Overall, I’d say Rob is a conscientious and trust-worthy guy. He’ll understand your real estate needs, and has a great eye for homes and the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhoods. I’ve already recommended him to friends for their house hunt.
