"I have recommended Rob to several friends that needed help selling their Homes. All three had tried other agents with no luck and needed to sell in a bad way. Rob went the extra mile on everything for them and all three sold in just a short while. He treated them the way everyone wants to be treated with regular updates, advise and great job getting their homes noticed. I would recommend Rob to anyone wanting to help with Real Estate buying or selling." -Phillip Glover
"This was my 2nd home purchase. Rob was the most helpful and professional real estate agent I have ever worked with. He helped me find the perfect home!" -A. Russell
"My dealings with Rob Thomas have been as professional as you could ask for. He always kept me informed, with straight forwardness in what was happening and was very active in selling my home. So when I referred friends of mine to contact Rob, they were all as pleased as I was. If you want a professional real estate agent to go to work for you, then Rob is your guy." -Craig Hughes
"When my wife and I were moving to the Bristol area due to a job transfer, we looked at a house listed by Rob. Although that house was not for us, we liked Rob's approach and demeanor and later asked him to help us find a house. It was a combined effort in that he brought prospects to us and we found some we wanted to look at on our own. Rob was agreeable and cheerfully showed us the selected properties. We finally found a house and Rob was very good at helping us get the right offer accepted. He also put us in touch with everyone we needed for closing and was helpful with other information needed in acquainting ourselves with the area. We developed a professional and personal relationship with Rob, and when my job took us out of the area, we naturally called him. He was familiar with the improvements we made to our home and suggested a listing price based upon his market knowledge. Our property was listed on a Thursday and a contract agreed to on Saturday. I can only give Rob the highest recommendation to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bristol area. He has an integrity and sincerity that is unequaled in his field."

"When my wife and I were looking for a Realtor to sell my house, I decided I would contact a few Realtors and meet with them prior to listing my house. Rob was the first Realtor I met with and chose to list my house with Rob and did not meet with anyone else. I chose to work with Rob because he was willing to listen to my wife and I and we felt comfortable working with Rob. When we decided to sell our house we expected our Realtor to get us maximum exposure to potential buyers and get us the best price on our house. Rob gave our house as much attention as he did all of his other listings and worked to get us the best selling price. Rob definitely met our expectations. We were impressed by Rob's work ethic and attentiveness to our needs. Rob was quick to return phone-calls and voice-mails to answer the many questions we had. After selling our house, Rob worked with us to purchase another house. We ran into some issues with the seller and the seller's agent, but with Rob's knowledge and experience he was able to resolve all of the issues to make the sell happen. I would tell my friends Rob is a hard worker and will do everything he can to make your real estate transaction go as smoothly as possible." -Nick Worsham
"I have known Rob and his family for many years. He is a very progressive, professional business man. Always honest.I wanted to sell my home, and he was great to work with and he sold my home. His energy and friendliness. If you want to sell your home with pride and no worry, then Rob Thomas is your best way to go.It was a pleasure to have Rob sell my home. Thanks Rob, your the best." -Alma Rigby
"Recommend to all, Great communicator, honest with all his properties and there is no question that he can't answer or try to find the answer to for his clients about any particular property. A+." -Marty McCloud
"Rob has helped my family not only as a sales agent, but also a purchasing agent. The first home Rob sold for us was modest in price, but he treated us as if we were the wealthiest couple in Bristol. He provided research, guidance, and was persistent until the home sold at a price we were very happy with. Recently he helped us purchase a much larger home and we couldn't be more pleased. He is a someone I trust absolutely and often recommend him to friends. He has never let us down." -S. Peak
"In my opinion Rob Thomas should be cloned and sent to every real estate market in the country as an example of the way Realtors should run their businesses. My husband and I have moved 23 times and have bought and sold seven homes always using a Realtor. I have never had an agent so knowledgeable about the area, homes available, price points and customer relations as was Rob Thomas. Rob is also the most personable and polite young man to travel the area with while looking for homes. He never says he can't or would rather not go out looking and he always made himself available at any time of the day or night. I felt as if I had known him for years and wish I had. If I had had such a Realtor as Rob in the past 23 moves my life would have been so much easier. Now I know who I can trust and who to recommend to all who need the best real estate agent in the country." -P. Strickland
"Rob sold us our house and then helped us sell it one year later. He was very personal yet professional. I would recommend him to our friends and family for sure." -R. Becklehamer
"I chose to work with Rob Thomas because of the high level of professionalism displayed in his advertisements, especially the quality of the pictures. I expected professional, quality service with an agent that was interested in selling my property quickly and sho would keep me informed on a regular basis as to progress. Rob excelled at meeting my expectations. I was most impressed with Rob's high level of ethics. He is forthright, hard working and honest in his dealings with his clients. I would recommend Rob Thomas not only to a friend, but to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a property." -C. Keller
"Rob is an amazing realtor. He not only finds the perfect house for your needs/desires, but he also gives you advice on decisions that you may be on the fence about. He knows the area and makes sure that he knows as much about the property before you step foot in the door!" -CJ and Sybil Manahan
"We met Rob when he was representing the couple who sold us their home in Piney Flats, TN. Although Rob wasn't "our" agent, he worked with us and represented our desires during negotiations and was always very professional and personable. Based on that great experience, when the time came for us to sell our then-existing home in Johnson City, TN, we called Rob immediately — very glad that we did! "
-Ronald and Rebecca Hite

Thank You Rob!" -Melissa Sims
