If you're looking in the South Bay, look no further! We started working with Rob over 2 years ago he was fully invested with us for 2 years and we ended up in our dream home. First he found us a great rental home in Manhattan Beach. During our time in our rental we explored purchasing a home in Manhattan Beach all the way down to Palos Verdes. Rob knows the entire South Bay in and out and seems to know (and have a great rapport) with every agent out there so he always has intel on the houses and sellers (how motivated they are, etc.). One of the things we appreciate most about Rob is how genuinely invested he was in our family and finding our perfect home. He was honest and open about the homes he thought were overpriced or where he thought we could find something better. He always added insight to the expected value of our home for resale. He has a dense knowledge of what construction or remodels cost and was always spot on with his estimates, which was hugely helpful. He really helped guide us through the process and we ended up in our dream home! Our house was actually over our budget, but Rob encouraged us to look and was able to get it down to our range. During the escrow process he was on top of everything and had great relationships with the builder of our home, the seller's agent, our lender and all the other people who were a part of the process to close. I realize this is a gushing review but it's well deserved. He's simply the best of the best!

Rob is incredible. He helped us find a home in Manhattan Beach. We had been searching on our own for 2 years and found us a home within 3 months! He went above and beyond during the negotiation process, offering to pitch in out of his commission for certain things we were negotiating. He is amazing. After we moved in, we had problems with the refrigerator in the house. Most realtors would just have walked away and said it's not their problem anymore. Rob, on the other hand, stuck by our side and served as a liaison between us and the builder and helped us for months after the sale. He even had a rental refrigerator installed while our fridge was getting fixed. I cannot say enough great things about him. We still keep in contact with him because he's such an awesome guy. Do yourself a favor and use Rob as your realtor! He's the best!

I found Rob's number on line and gave him a call thinking I had very few chances to find and qualify for the purchase of a second house. Rob quickly understood "my not ideal personal situation" and immediately connected me with the rest of his team. We all as a team started the process to make the dream come true. Rob and his team put all their efforts together to get me the house I wanted. At the same time, Rob made sure the property I was getting was a good investment in terms of the home value and location. I will continue working with Rob in the future and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking into purchasing a new property.

Rob was an amazing realtor to work with! My husband and I were very lucky to have worked with someone who was so professional and thorough throughout the entire process. Rob would always check in frequently with both of us, and send us listings that matched up to exactly what we were looking for. We also appreciated him meeting us at any given time to see a listing. My husband and I would 100% recommend Rob to anyone who is looking to buy! Thanks again Robbie D!

Jack H.

I had been introduced to Rob a couple of months ago from a friend and decided to give him a shot since he seemed like a really nice person. Rob exceeded my expectations when helping me find a home for my family and I. He was always on time and met us on multiple weekends to show us houses in and around Manhattan Beach. The transaction was quick and smooth so I was extremely happy with the process, as I know it can be grueling at times. I will be recommending Rob to my friends and family every time they sell or buy a house in Los Angeles.

Buying your first home can be an overwhelming experience- Rob made everything wonderful! He always has his clients best interest in mind, and we truly trusted him throughout the entire process. Thanks to Rob we landed our dream home under asking- something we could only dream of! Rob will continue to go to bat for his clients, and we could not recommend him more!

I worked with Rob Depaoli and Jim Van Zanten this summer to help sell my home. These gentlemen are true pros and can sell homes in their sleep. They do it all with a positive attitude, unmatched problem solving abilities and professionalism. I highly recommend them both if you are looking to buy or sell a home. They are a pleasure to work with and will get the job done!

Rob helped me find a beautiful home to rent in Playa Del Rey, CA. He made the process smooth and painless as he was easy to work with, responsive and respectful. He listened to our needs and was able to find the perfect home for us. I would recommend working with Rob to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent a home in Los Angeles!
