Robert offered a full slate of services designed to help make our move from Pasadena to Palm Desert smooth and efficient. We counted on him to provide home options that matched our wishlist, and Robert went above and beyond, including scheduling showings, and offering financing options and deal-making advice. He helped us navigate a difficult and complex escrow process with grace, good humor, and persistence. We’re in our forever home, and it wouldn’t have happened without his help. Thanks, Robert. - Jeff

We had been considering selling our condo in Palm Desert for sometime but not knowing a local agent and not having one recommended to us we were concerned about the ‘crap shoot’ of finding THE agent. As luck would have it we received one of the most professional and stunning real estate flyers on another condo in our community from Robert LaDuke. We called him, discussed our concerns and plans, and he almost immediately inspected our condo and gave us his assessment of value, condition, and how to market it. As it turned out he was spot on. We listed and he brought us great offers. He made sure that it was a ‘win-win’ for us and the buyers because of his professionalism, his personality, his work ethics, and his truthfulness. Thank you, Robert LaDuke! - DeDe and Frank

I knew Robert LaDuke was exceptional when he arrived at my home with buckets of fresh orchids for staging and a drone to take awesome photographs. He noted a broken light fixture and replaced it without my asking. Robert’s knowledge, expertise, and sense of humor were invaluable when we hit a few roadblocks upon discovering mold and termites in my home. He knew exactly what to do and who to contact to quickly remediate these problems. Robert knows how to negotiate. He’s not about making a quick commission. He’s honest, intuitive, and I believe he has clients’ best interest at heart. - Janet

We would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” for all of Robert’s hard work in closing our Palm Springs property. He was so patient with us as we looked at so many properties. He was highly professional and enthusiastic throughout the entire process. It truly was a pleasure working with him and we fully appreciate his attention to detail and always being available to us. Robert went above and beyond previewing properties for us in advance. We could not have done this without him. If any of his clients have questions we would be happy to speak with them and “sing his praises.” Again, thanks so much Robert! - Bob and Patrick

Robert has shepherded me through the process of selling my large cabin on a sizable piece of land. He has impressed me with what I have come to think of as friendly professionalism. Specifically he is warm but with an attention to detail that made me feel confident that the sales/escrow process was being properly executed. He was responsive to my questions and demonstrated a deep knowledge of real estate transactions. I was also impressed with his approach to marketing my property and how he called Sotheby's International Realty's resources into play. I never had to doubt where we were in negotiations, what the next step we needed to take and that Robert was keeping the process moving. I recommend him without reservation. - Dean

I was selling my house from across the country and Robert’s contributions were invaluable. As my local eyes and ears, he recommended services needed to market my home, and ensured that all of the details were managed to a successful outcome. He shined with each opportunity to demonstrate his professionalism, service and value. Having Robert as my REALTOR® made a huge difference in my quality of life through the process. If you’re looking for a top-notch REALTOR®, Robert has my highest recommendation. - Glenn

My experience with Robert was that he got the job of selling my house done with methods that really work. He is a professional, honest, aware of the market and keep on top of all the necessary forms to get the home sold. I am an independent business owner in the customer service business for over 46 years. I have dealt with eight REALTORS® buying and selling property in this area. Robert was the hardest working of all of these REALTORS®. I highly recommend Robert LaDuke to sell your house for you. - Wylie

Robert LaDuke: Knowledgeable and well-spoken. If there’s something he cannot answer right away, his list of experts always has the answer, as well as support in a professional and for reasonable compensation, if needed. Robert has shepherded us through one purchase and one sale, with zero disappointments. I recommend him with no reservations and intend to use him again. - Colleen

Robert helped my purchase my first home. I did my fair share of research before buying and he was very helpful in filling in the blanks. Responsiveness was the aspect I was most impressed with. He was always willing to make that phone call, make that drive to go see a far away home, etc. Even though I’m sure I wasn’t his only client, it felt as though I was and there was never a lapse in communication. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Erik

I’ve known Robert LaDuke for many years. As a first time home buyer, I was new to the process of home buying and especially the part after getting your offer chosen. Escrow is even more difficult than I anticipated. I went through months and months of looking at houses in a very difficult market and then finally had an offer chosen. He was always very patient and attuned to my personality and my specific needs. He is not a pushy salesmen that will say whatever it takes to sell a house. I felt like he always had my needs in mind first. Robert was patient and considerate in taking care of all of my questions. He has also been a big help with any problem that has come up with moving into my new house. I will certainly recommend him to anyone. - Peter

Robert was amazing to work with. He showed us several homes and assisted in our search. Robert was very knowledgeable about homes in the area and navigating us through the process. Robert is a professional with a wonderful demeanor. He is pleasant to work with, responsive and patient. Robert made himself available to show us the house we fell in love with several times during the purchase process. I really felt like Robert took the time to get to know my family and the needs we had for our housing search. Roberts assistance enabled us to find the perfect place to call home. I highly recommend Robert LaDuke as a REALTOR® and professional. - Robert

We were moving to the desert and did not know a REALTOR®. Luckily a good agent friend in Orange County referred us to Robert. He has been a true blessing. He has worked diligently to help us find our forever retirement home. Being so far away Robert would send us videos of possible homes. He toured homes with us and was in constant contact throughout the process. He even introduced to an excellent lender. One month later we are in escrow. Robert is professional and a great listener. He knew us and our wants in no time. This has been such a pleasurable and exciting experience, thanks to Robert’s guidance. We would highly recommend Robert for anyone looking for a home. He is amazing. - Leonard Rick

Robert was so great to work with. I was a first time home buyer and had so many questions and doubts through the entire process. Robert was always available to answer my questions and never hesitated to reach out to his colleagues for additional verification and help. He was very honest and took the time to learn what I was looking for. As a single person with a very busy work schedule, Robert was also great by adjusting to my schedule and also letting the sellers and escrow office know my availability. I always felt that Robert was on my side and looked out for my best interests. I would not hesitate to use Robert again or refer him to my friends! - Neha

My husband and I both enjoyed working with Robert. He found our perfect house. We started house hunting with Robert after we had already been through two REALTORS®. We knew what we wanted, and one of those things was to not feel pressured into making an important financial decision like purchasing our first home. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how he approached each home with us. He was knowledgeable and would help us weigh out pros and cons of each property, without being pushy. - Lindsay and Brad

Robert quickly learned what I was looking for in a new home. He was also very helpful in arranging inspections and contractors as this was a long distance purchase. He is friendly and is dedicated to making sure you are buying the right place for yourself. - Gene

Robert was most helpful in showing us around the property. He spent a great deal of time providing information that was very helpful to make a decision. At all times, he was very sincere, straightforward and professional in promoting the property. He could not have been more cooperative, nor could he have been more generous with his time. We would welcome the opportunity to work with him in the future and would recommend him based on his professionalism, acumen and great personal attributes. - Julianna and David

I want you to know how professional Robert is. He is very professional and honest. I never felt like I should be questioning him. It’s not always about the one deal or the one commission check. We are a very small community and our reputation with not only our clients but our fellow agents are what make us successful, or not. I feel I have a new friend and I cannot wait to have another deal with him in the near future. Robert was always very professional and friendly and he went over and beyond. - Kathy S (Sales Associate, Coldwell Banker)

My wife and I were looking for a house for the two of us and our teenage daughter. Because we didn’t have the funds for an all cash purchase we really relied on having an agent like Robert that was on the ball, early to get an offer in, extremely capable of getting our offers looked at as well as liked by the seller and the seller’s agent. He is extremely personable and professional. We now consider Robert a friend - not just an agent - because he went beyond our expectations. - Nick and Sarah
