    This last year my family went through the arduous and frustrating process of a short sale of our home in Richmond. Bob and Debbie Gibbs represented us from the beginning to the end of the whole process. Their guidance and assistance with all aspects of the short sale process was invaluable. They made sure that paperwork required by the bank was turned in before deadline and when the bank lost the paperwork Debbie patiently turned it all in again. At each step of the process Bob and Debbie made sure we understood what was happening. They were prompt in returning messages and explained things in terms we could understand. Throughout the entire process Bob and Debbie were professional and cheerful in their approach to the constant delays and issues with the bank. Sometimes the only thing that kept me hopeful was talking to them and knowing that they had successfully completed many short sales and they clearly understood how to work with banks. I am certain that Debbie’s persistence with calling the bank to check on the status of the short sale is finally how we were able to successfully complete the process. My wife and I are grateful for their expert help and the reassurance they offered when nothing seemed to be going right with the bank. We would be happy to work with them again in the future to assist us in the more enjoyable process of buying a home. New review 11/10/15 - This last summer (2015) Bob and Debbie assisted us with buying a home in Pinole. When we found the right home they did a great job of representing us and made sure that all of the details were taken care of without a problem. We appreciate all of the effort they made to make sure that the process went as smoothly as possible. It was truly a pleasure to work with Bob and Debbie! Thank you so much!

    I have always been curious and interested in local real estate, and once filled out an online home search form that would alert me daily with homes coming up for sale within the specific parameters that I'd set. One day I saw a house come up on the market just three houses down from the home my husband and I were living in with our two kids. Bob and Debbie Gibbs were the agents that sent me the daily updates, so I contacted them to see if they were willing to show us the house - more out of curiosity than anything else, to be honest. Bob graciously agreed to show us the house at our convenience. Upon seeing the house, we discovered that it was both a short sale, and in need of major renovation. We decided to take a leap and made an offer on the home. The bank accepted our offer, and as we didn't have any experience with short sales, we really had to rely on Bob and Debbie for guidance and help with the process. They were both extremely helpful every step of the way. They made the entire endeavour easy and worry-free. Not only were they our real estate agents, we felt comfortable with them and could really tell that they cared about us as a family - it wasn't just a business deal for them. They really went the extra mile and it meant a lot to us. Now, three years later, both my husband and I still think of them as friends and I would highly recommend them to any friends or family thinking about buying or selling!

    Bob was the third and last real estate agent we worked with during our 2013 home search. While other agents scoffed at the idea of using a non-conventional loan in such a "crazy hot market," Bob confidently told me that he would make it happen and find my family the house we wanted. Boy did he deliver!! We ended up purchasing the best house we saw at our offer price (which appraised for over what we bought it for)! I owe a lot of that success to Bob. Do yourself a favor and get a real estate agent that has your best interest in mind! Apparently the barriers to becoming an accredited agent in California are extremely low and there are A LOT of agents out there who are borderline idiots. Bob & Debbie's team is where my internet research hit the jackpot. Bob was the only agent that I met that was on top of his game 24/7!!!! Here is the short version-- Bob is personable, NOT PUSHY, thinks strategically, is a good negotiator, stays on top of macro and micro trends in real estate markets and the general economy, has great customer service, is very prompt, and most importantly-- puts his buyers above profits and deals! Multiple times he gave us advice and supported decisions that were motivated by having our best interest (and not closing the deal) . I did not see the value of real estate agents until I met Bob!

    Bob did an amazing job finding a home for my boyfriend and me! I've heard a ton of horror stories about buying real estate in the Bay Area with prices going up and low inventories. We had the opposite experience though. We got pre-approved for a mortgage in late January of 2014. In February Bob found us the perfect home. Now in the middle of March we are moved in and loving our house! If we created the bid for the house ourselves I'm sure we wouldn't have gotten it. But Bob helped us craft the perfect bid and was in constant communication with not just us, but with the selling agent on the other side as well. From the very get-go Bob treated us like A+ clients. This is despite our lower-than-average budget for a house in the Bay Area. Bob even called us on his days off. He was proactive with our mortgage broker and was in constant communication about the next step in the process. As first time home buyers I can't tell you how much we appreciated Bob navigating us through the entire process start to finish. Don't get me started on his crew of home inspectors either. They were absolutely wonderful. We are so grateful that we chose Bob and Debbie to help us buy our first house.
  • Buyer/Seller

    First and foremost, Bob and Debbie Gibbs are good people. Sounds easy and a little old fashioned but we've had a lot of experience with realtors and it's not that common. We had a great experience with Bob and Debbie. They both helped us sell our home and find a new home. The sale process was smooth, despite some external bumps in the road and we were satisfied with the value we received for our home. In the run-up to putting our home on the market, they helped coordinate with a number of vendors to get our house prepped and ready to show. They had a thoughtful marketing plan and we felt very good about the volume and quality of exposure for the property. On the buy side, Bob and Debbie were very responsive. They helped us navigate in a tough sellers’ market. We ended up in a home that we love, in a neighborhood we love, for a price that was very reasonable considering the current environment. We are very demanding clients and Bob and Debbie were game for any challenge we sent their way. In short, I highly recommend Bob and Debbie if you are looking to buy or sell real estate in the East Bay.

    We had 60 days to find a house, close escrow, and move in. Bob and Debbie Gibbs made that happen with time to spare. It would not have been possible without their knowledge, positive enthusiasm, professional customer service, and persistence. They have extensive knowledge of the local area which made finding the right home for us easier. Their expertise in the home buying process made it smooth and less stressful and we were always informed on where we were in the process. Bob and Debbie's support staff were very professional and knowledgeable. We especially liked using docusign which greatly expedited the escrow process, which was only 18 days! Bob made himself available for every inspection and walk through. They were always receptive to our phone calls and responded to every email and text message promptly. The Gibbs helped negotiate a great deal for us in this crazy California market. They had a good working relationship with the seller's agent and our loan officer. We would not hesitate recommending Bob and Debbie Gibbs to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home.

    My father was a well-known and respected agent and so I know several of the top agents in the area. A good agent knows and will articulate the principal that ultimately there is only one reason a property will sell or can be purchased and that is price. The agent will discuss this with a clear conscience, not low balling for a quick sale or telling a client a high price to get the listing.... I asked Bob and Debbie to appraise my properties when the market got hot this past year. I was very appreciative of their perspective and depth of knowledge for the confluence of market changes. They were accurate in predicting the rise and fall of inventory and how to position a property to achieve the best price. I have worked with the Gibbs Team on several projects and find them to be hardworking, trustworthy, and insightful. Picking the right agent means knowing that they are working for you...and not just a commission...this is how the top smart agents build their clientele. Bob and Debbie understand these principals and put them to work every day....thank you folks for all you do!

    My Wife and I couldn't have been happier in our experience working with Bob and Debbie! We found them while researching reviews on Yelp and Zillow and were confident that based upon their reputation we would have a great experience. Our home buying process took many twists and turns including wanting to find a rehab property at a discount to simply wanting to find a good property, based on our budget, at a fair price. We took a total of 8 months to find a house to settle on, and during that time we were able to really get to know Bob and Debbie. Based upon our experiences with them, we now have the privilege of calling them our friends. You will find Bob and Debbie to be knowledgeable, generous, sincere, available, responsive, persistent, patient, and hard working. My favorite things about Bob and Debbie are their high levels of integrity and honesty. When buying a home, and in life, finding people to do business and life with who have integrity is, in many ways, priceless. Thanks for everything Bob and Debbie!
  • Seller

    I met Bob & Debbie Gibbs several years before I listed my home in San Ramon, CA. Once I found out I was going to be transferred out of the area I decided to call Bob & Debbie because of their reputation in the community. From the very beginning they took the time to research the local prices in the area and provided me with realistic guidance about where to price my house. They also explained their marketing plan which they executed flawlessly. Despite a soft housing market, my house was sold in 48 hours, while other homes nearby just sat on the market for months. My home sold quickly because of the preparation and the marketing plan they put together. I have had to buy and sell a number of homes over the years; however, without a doubt my experience with Bob & Debbie was the best experience I’ve ever had with real-estate agents. They work hard and take their jobs very seriously…I felt like I was their only client!
  • Buyer

    We recently relocated to the area and we couldn't be happier finding Bob and Debbie Gibbs to help us look for our first home. Bob and Debbie are extremely professional and have excellent communication. They were even complimented by two separate seller’s agents that they were a pleasure to work with. When the seller’s agent’s want to work with your real estate agent then you know you are in the right hands. The Gibbs team exceeded our expectations and not only helped us win in a multiple offer situation but got us a house in a very difficult situation. They definitely fought for us and looked out for our interests at all times. We ultimately got our dream home and we could never have done it without them. I would not hesitate to recommend Bob and Debbie to all of our friends and family in need of a great real estate agent team. They will be the first we call when we need a real estate agent! Thanks again Bob and Debbie!
  • Buyer

    I cannot say enough nice things about Debbie and her husband Bob. I was a first time home purchaser using VA financing, I know many of the questions I had were basic but they were never too busy to give me their full attention. They helped my wife and I purchase a home we love in an aggressive market, and they made the process a smooth one. They personally walked us through every part of the process, they were on site to help explain things and answer questions during the inspection. Even after the fact they have stayed in touch, stayed responsive, and its really a combination of all the small things they do that add up and make such a difference. I mean who still hand writes letters to their clients to ask how everything is going. You can't get better than what they have to offer. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to my own friends and family.
  • Seller

    December 2009 we listed our house with the Gibbs'. As you know at that time the housing market had dipped to an all-time low. This was a dark personal time for my family. Everybody we talked to said we were in for a long and wild ride. Being spiritual people, Bob made a comment that resonated with me, and that comment was, all is we need is one buyer. So we listed with the Gibbs' at the end of December 2009 and low and behold in three weeks we tendered an offer for $4000.00 less than the asking price with a 21 day escrow and $900,000 down payment. I do not believe in luck. We were blessed to have the Gibbs representing our family at a critical time. Since the sale of our house, we have introduced six close friends to the Gibbs' and the results were all the same, "Success".
  • Buyer

    When we were looking for a home in Pleasanton, Bob's negotiation skills allowed us to seal the deal on our chosen house even in a difficult market. He negotiated aggressively and got us he best deal even while there were other offers on the house. He spent a significant amount of time with us looking at homes, and made good use of our time whenever we went out. He quickly figured out the types of houses we were looking for, and showed only ones that would interest us. I have dealt with many realtors in the past, and Bob outdid all of them. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Bob and Debbie Gibbs as your realtors if you are looking to buy or sell a home. The five star rating was well earned.
  • Buyer

    In the summer of 2011 - my husband and I were first-time home buyers and really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. Debbie and Bob never pushed us to make a decision and really took notice of the "cues" we gave them. They were considerate and honest. We ended up purchasing a perfect little house in downtown Pleasanton, thanks to Debbie's hard work. She was a gentle guiding hand from the beginning and continues to be a good friend and someone we look to for answers, as we embark on home-ownership. I wholeheartedly recommend Debbie and/or Bob if you want the BEST buying experience, whether it’s your first house or your fifth!
  • Seller

    We had an excellent experience with Bob and would definitely use him again to buy or sell a house. Bob showed excellent knowledge of the market and proved very strong in both internet and “traditional” means of marketing our house for sale. In uncertain times in the market, Bob also proved very patient, professional and thorough in helping us manage our listing including enabling us to sell the house while we were travelling outside of the area. His knowledge of Danville and the surrounding area is very strong as are his contacts and relationships. We had a very good service experience and would highly recommend Bob.
  • Tisha Faith

    We recently purchased a home in Danville, CA with Bob as our agent. He is amazing. This was a difficult transaction for us as we were living in Southern California, but Bob took care of every detail for us...and there were challenges! He truly is the most professional agent we have ever worked with. He kept us informed every step of the way, always updating us with detailed information and returned phone calls immediately. We never felt out of the loop at any time We can't recommend Bob and Debbie more highly. The best go to team if you want to feel confident while purchasing your next home!
  • Seller

    In all the years I have moved, bought and sold homes, and a few commercial properties, I have never come across a real estate agent or broker or team that is so knowledgeable, dedicated, persistent, polite, respectful and understanding as Debbie and Bob Gibbs. I feel so much guilt for burdening them with so many tasks and headaches in selling my distressed property in a short sale because the commission simply didn't cover all the time, effort and frustrations they put up with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope to be able to make it up to you someday somehow.
  • Wes Yomama

    Bob and Debbie Gibbs were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely helpful throughout the entire process of helping me sell my house. From determining a list price, scheduling and hosting the open houses, and throughout the bid/contract phase, they were always very professional and prompt in responding to any questions that I had. I would highly recommend Bob and Debbie to anyone looking to buy or sell a property and values a personal and professional consultant who knows the business.
  • Seller

    We sold and bought our new home through Bob and Debbie. They were very professional and provided us with good advice to help us successfully navigate through this complex process. They were with us every step of the way. They utilized good marketing techniques and provided staging advice to help us sell our home and provided good market intelligence to help us buy our new home. They were very responsive and made this a pleasant experience for us. We would highly recommend them.
  • Buyer

    They are wonderful! As first-time homebuyer's we were clueless about the process. They were there for us from day one and even still are after being in our home for over a year! They are very professional, knowledgeable, caring and experienced. They did not pressure or rush us and really took the time to explain things to us. Most of all they are down to Earth and always have our best interests in mind. Couldn't ask for a better team to assist us with our Real Estate needs!
  • Seller

    Bob and Debbie did a great job in selling my home! I would recommend them to anyone! My home went on the market in Mid-March of 2012 and I had three offers to purchase within 48 hours. The offer that was accepted fell through and the home went back on the market and the following weekend I had 10 offers on the home. I also had an offer to purchase "as is" which I accepted. That buyer had secured a loan in advance.
  • Seller

    Bob and Debbie Gibbs are an excellent real estate team, who keep on top of the regional market and have the expertise needed to target a sale. They sold a home in Antioch for me. I live in another state and Bob and Debbie did a fantastic job of working with me long distance, staying on top of all aspects of the transaction and keeping me well informed. I highly recommend them.
  • Seller

    Bob and Debbie expertly guided us through the process of selling our home. They are genuine, caring people who we felt took very good care of us and lifted much of our anxiety that we had surrounding our experience. They were right there when we needed them and stayed in constant communication with us. We highly recommend working with them!
  • Seller

    Skilfully helped set the price, and negotiated the sale. Very responsive to all questions and issues throughout the process, regardless of time or situation. Exceptionally knowledgeable about market conditions. Honestly represented the strengths and weaknesses of our condition. Established an environment of respect and trust with all parties.
  • Buyer/Seller

    We live in our dream home because of Bob and Debbie, and we had the best experience. They are supportive, knowledgeable, and punctual and went out of their way to make it as smooth of a purchase as possible. I refer all my friends and family members to them and trust them explicitly. They are also our realtors for the short sale of our condo.
  • Buyer

    I've worked with Bob and Debbie Gibbs for several years and have used them to purchase investment properties. Both Bob and Debbie are extremely hard working, knowledgeable and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone looking to either purchase or sell a home, particularly in the East Bay.
  • Seller

    They were great, knowledgeable and respected by the other realtors who brought clients to see our house. You cannot do any better than the Gibbs. They priced it right and knew how to gracefully negotiate with people who were interested in our house. They are totally above-board and honest.
  • Seller

    There's no question that I would highly recommend Bob Gibbs for any of your real-estate needs. After 16 years of living in my neighborhood, I thought I knew a lot about it and the market, but Bob was clearly the most knowledgeable. His professionalism and dedication to his client is second to none.
  • Heidi Cossentine

    Bob is very friendly and eager to help. When we were buying a house, he and his wife were both the buying and selling agent and they were always there for us to answer questions and help us through the process. Bob is a good guy and I would work with him again.
  • Gina Marie Daly

    Debbie and Bob helped us find our dream home, in the best location of west side Danville. They are the experts in the area and were an absolute pleasure to work with! We can't thank them enough for staying dedicated to the search for our family home!
  • Buyer/Seller

    Bob is extremely patient & you never feel pushed into buying a house. He loves doing his job & without a doubt when people do that they are good at their jobs. We really liked working with him because his demeanour is more of a friend than your agent!
  • Buyer

    Debbie & Bob are fantastic people and very professional real estate agents. They helped us get our home in the bay area and were great through the entire process. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for friendly, bright and genuine agents.
  • Buyer

    Great duo to work with. Very informative and always on top of the job. They gave my wife and I more information than we could have asked for and was always available for questions or meet ups. Thank you!!
  • Buyer/Seller

    We have worked with Bob and Debbie in the past and Bob is the person I contact each time I have a question about the Danville/Alamo area. If we have a home to sell or purchase I call the Gibbs Team.
  • Buyer

    Bob and Debbie are absolute real estate pros. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for honest, hardworking, and kind hearted realtors.
