Working with Derek and Rob at Sotheby’s International Realty was an absolute pleasure. Not only were they impeccable professionals but were relatable, down-to-earth, and easy to talk to. Their no-pressure approach made buying and selling a dream, and their passion for the business shines through in everything they do. No obstacle was too high, no demand too belittling. I am confident they will achieve great things in the real estate business and am excited to see them continue to thrive here in Los Angeles and beyond.

As a Real Estate Developer who builds and remodels homes in San Francisco, Marin County, Palm Springs, and Los Angeles, I work with a lot of different Real Estate Agents all over California. In Los Angeles, I exclusively use Rob and Derek to purchase and list my properties. Their professionalism, expertise, and negotiating acumen are of the highest caliber, and frankly I wish I could get such service with all of the agents I work with. With over 30 years experience in the business, I know what makes up a great agent, and they have it. I would recommend them to anybody.

My many real estate dealings with Rob have consistently been of the highest quality. He is attentive, intelligent, personable, professional, savvy and reliable. Rob has a gift for finding the best fit and knows Los Angeles incredibly well — niches, up and coming markets, local insight, newest listings and LA treasures. Highly recommended.

Robert was a pleasure to work with. His local understanding and relationships really made the process of selling happen quickly and efficiently. I would never imagine using anyone else.

I loved working with Robert. He was exactly the kind of agent I was looking for- upbeat, fast paced, and caring. He wanted to help me find the perfect home for me and he definitely delivered. He let me know when to avoid houses and when to step up. I love my home and would recommend him to ANYONE looking to buy or sell.

Robert Gerner has the right mix of ambition, energy, knowledge and intelligence you need in a real estate agent. He knew exactly at what price to list our house in order to generate the max amount of interested buyers and finally the highest final sale price per square foot sold in the area!! He truly enjoys what he does and takes pride in working for his clients with integrity, care and efficiency.

Robert and his team provided excellent service. Robert was always a phone call away for any questions or problems. This is our third deal with Robert and I would highly recommend him in the Los Angeles/Ventura/Ojai area.

Throughout his real estate career, Robert has been rewarded not only with verbal accolades, but also with written testitmonials and recommendations from impressed and thankful clients wanting to share their experiences. Their acknowledgement is testament to the care Robert and his team afford their real estate clients, and to the value they place on those relationships. Following is a sampling of those “Bravos:”
