"We met Bob via the internet. We spoke at length on the phone and spent a couple of days with him looking at properties. Our experience with Bob was nothing like any other previous experience we might have had with a real estate agent. This is the highest compliment we could give him. What impressed us most about Bob was that he was responsive and listened to our specific needs.By the time we looked at properties, we knew our time wouldn't be wasted. There was no pressure to make a purchase. We felt he genuinely enjoyed his job and giving good customer service. We would recommend his services highly." - Rhonda and Michael Fawson Toronto, Canada
"We have come across Bob on the internet when we were looking to buy a single family home in South Florida. Initially we searched at the East Coast but Bob stayed in contact with us over almost 18 months and convinced us to have at least a look at Marco Island before buying at the East Coast. We have followed his advice and were positively surprised about Marco Island as a location. The island is exactly what we were looking for and we are happy with the house and the purchase process.
What made a big difference to us as Europeans was Bob's willingness to work literally day and night for us. He was very responsive both by e-mail and phone and made the whole purchase process very efficient and customer friendly. " - Wolfgang & Family, Germany .
"In 2007 we made a trip to the United States to celebrate the fact that my eldest son became a doctor. So we travelled around from New York to Orlando and from there by car to Naples Florida. During that stay we had seen lovely houses in that very peaceful and quiet region.
When we went back home we started looking for a condo on different websites of real estate brokers.
That's where I came into contact with Bob Bailey. We went back in November of that year to look at different condos but we didn't find what we really wanted.
Back in Belgium Bob send us very regular messages of huge opportunities and indeed one day we felt in love with a condo in Lely Resort.
Bob never pushed us to buy anything; he only tried to understand what we really wanted. Frankly we don't like to be pushed in a sale.
What we want is professional advice and that is the difference that Bob Bailey provides to his customers.
We are sure going to do more business with him in that region. " - Alexander & Ingrid, Belgium
Thanks for a very good and illuminating tour of the Naples area. You are the most decent and honest broker we have ever met, and not pushy and trying to "push" things onto your clients."

"I had been interested in property in Florida for some time but had not really been in touch with any Realtors with whom I felt comfortable. My first contact with Bob allayed my fears of high pressure selling. He has a very relaxed approach + responded promptly to all queries with full answers and he soon established exactly what my requirements were. With a family of 5 daughters of varying ages this was not a straightforward process !We wanted a house with pool with 5 bedrooms in a safe community with full golf,tennis , gymn + leisure facilities
Once Bob had narrowed down our requirements we viewed a number of properties on our next visit to Naples. We made offers on 2 properties before settling on one in Lely which met all of our requirements superbly. There were one or two potential hitches with the deal but Bob got us through them. He made the whole process easy + stressless from our end + nothing was a problem.
We have stayed in touch since our purchase + will certainly be using Bob for any further property transactions " - Neil & Gabrielle Ellis & family UK
"I have been a Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker for 22 years. My wife and I traveled to Naples for the first time in 2008 after researching several cities and states online for a vacation home. I interviewed several agents before choosing Bob Bailey to work with us. He was able to offer Buyer Brokerage services when other Realtors I talked to would not and I was impressed with his knowledge of the local market and the different communities in Naples. He was very attentive and always returned phone calls and emails immediately. His efficiency in getting information to us was exceptional. Bob is a no pressure salesman and was more interested in educating us so we could make an informed decision. He was very patient and understanding when we were having trouble deciding between the fabulous properties he showed us. Bob worked hard and was always available for questions and guidance in a market that was unfamiliar to us. We not only found the best Realtor in Naples but we are proud to call Bob and his wife Patti our very dear friends. Every trip to Naples we look forward to spending time with them."
