|This letter is to commend Robert Zebaida on a job well done. He represented me in the sale of my townhouse which just closed in May 2012. It wasn't an easy sale. Due to the poor market conditions I had to sell it for almost half of what I paid for it in 2005, thereby forcing me to short sale it. I had listed it prior to hiring Robert through an agent out of Maplewood, NJ and when it didn't sell (the realtor literally did nothing for me!) I interviewed and hired Robert. I immediately trusted him and felt that he was the person for me, that if anyone could sell my house that it was him. From the time Robert took my contract he feverishly looked for a buyer for my (beautiful) townhouse. He found one quickly and worked hard to get to contract and bring that to the bank. After 3 months we lost the buyer due to the bank's dragging their feet, and the buyers walked away. It was right before Christmas and the buyers got tired of waiting. Within no time (a couple of weeks) Robert found another set of buyers who eventually bought my house. At no time did Robert ever drag his feet. To the contrary, he worked hard throughout the whole process to finally see it to completion, thereby making everyone happy. He made the process as easy as possible and I really appreciate that! It wasn't an easy thing for me to be forced to sell my house, and to short sell it and walk away without anything was difficult. However, Robert's prowess as a real estate professional helped me see it through with a smile, literally! (Additionally, he recommended a short sale attorney, Richard Citron, who, along with his paralegal, Jennifer, were amazing to work with.) I will do whatever I can to recommend Robert Zebaida and Keller Williams Livingston to any one I come across who is interested in buying or selling a home. His unique display of professionalism and friendly manner is highly admirable! I have bought and sold 3 houses in the area over the last 20 years and have met and dealt with many real estate agents. In the real estate community I have yet to come across someone as astute as him!|
|As a first-time home buyer, I learned a lot from Robert's consultation and education. Robert is very responsive and helpful before and after I bought my very first house. I am very impressed by Robert's professional.|

|“Robert Zebaida listed and sold our home for us. Roberts's understanding and knowledge enabled him to guide us through this process. Throughout the experience we found Robert to be excellent in helping to manage our expectations, handling negotiations, preparing us in advance to avoid some pitfalls, and overall management of the sales process. I would recommend Robert Zebaida to anyone that is buying or selling their home. He is truly a consummate professional.|
|Kelly A. Frayer | Financial Services Group|
|Our experience with Rob was nothing short of exceptional. He allowed my husband and I to find a house at our own pace, in our price range, with the characteristics that we desired. He remained an essential resource throughout the house buying process by providing both an informed opinion and guidance as to bidding, inspections and attorney review expectations. We are indebted to Rob for all of his assistance and would absolutely recommend him to our friends and family.|
|Jodi & Michael Stacey|
|Thanks so much for a delightful experience in purchasing our new home! Michael and I were first time buyers as you know, and you made the process ever so easy going as well as comfortable for us! I will always be gracious of the time you spent with us and care you gave towards our investment! You didn't do it just for your financial gain you did it for us as a loyal friend and realtor and because you care for what you do and how you do it!!! I would most recommend you to anyone I know in the future when they are in need of purchasing a home! Then experience was fulfilling to us and we appreciate the care and concern you had toward our family!!!|
|Robert was tremendously helpful when I made my first purchase as a real estate investor. The property was exactly what I was looking for and he made it easy to invest. I was new to the concept of real estate investment so I had far more questions than the average investor. Robert was more supportive than I would have expected and never made me feel like my questions were stupid or redundant. He was prompt with return calls and his responses always answered my questions and those he anticipated would come next. Robert took the time to teach me rather than just try to sell to me. He owns his own rental properties and explained to me how it works though his experience as a real estate investor, giving me the confidence that I could purchase a property and have tenants to put in it. His knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped me to close the deal on the property in a very efficient way and time. I am absolutely thrilled with the rental property that he found for me and, of course, the positive cash flow does not hurt! I am sure we will do more deals together in the future!|

|When deciding to sell our home, Robert Zebaida, turned out to be the best choice we could have made. We started out with another realtor with no success. Robert came to us after we decided not to renew with our first realtor. This turned out to be the decision that we should have started with. Sometimes I wanted to give up. I never thought we would find a buyer. Robert never gave up. He was always reachable. Always dedicated. Always there when you needed a question answered. Finally...a buyer for our home. Extremely smooth and quick closing. When we decide to purchase another home, there will only be ONE choice for realtor....Robert Zebaida at Keller Williams in Livingston, NJ. Thank you Robert!|
|Robert, you are a consummate professional. When we first met I was impressed by your demeanor and understanding. Even though I did not put you on the top of my list of the realtors I had interviewed, your subsequent calls and our discussions convinced me to sign on with you. It was a great decision on my part. You put us at ease and engendered a confidence. Best of all, you took away the pressures of the sale transaction. Even when I vented at you when we discussed the inspection report, you calmly said, "but Gerry, this is a good report". Thank you so much for your knowledge and assistance. You are tops.|
|We cannot imagine buying a house without Robert. When we first began looking, Robert went out of his way to take care of so many of the small details in order to help us out. He made what could have been a very stressful time of our lives one of the smoothest transitions. Robert Zebaida is the real estate agent to use.|
