About Bob


Glowing Reviews

Bob is a gem. We bought and sold properties through him this year. His vast experience, market knowledge and huge network of colleagues gave us an enormous advantage. You name it - he has seen it all -- he stays cool and has a strategy to advance your position at every turn. Bob's high energy level and enthusiasm are contagious. He is a fantastic communicator - he responds back to your questions immediately by call or text 7 days a week. We rarely had questions for him because he proactively called us at every small step in the buying and selling process. Bob's office staff are wizards with the web-based marketing and sales technology. He's one of those guys whose substantial career success has been built on working hard, laser-focused attention to the smallest details, telling the truth, and treating people with respect and kindness.


"The length of time and degree of patience to bring about the productive results of marketing my property went far beyond all of my expectations.  Mr. Szarek stayed the course with experience and consideration for all involved.  I viewed Mr. Szarek as a completely accomplished real estate professional with absolute integrity."

"It has been about a month since I closed on my townhouse in Crocker Park and I’m really thankful to Bob who helped me during the whole process, from contract to closing. Bob’s dedication and knowledge made buying my first home a very positive experience. The purchase of my home would have not been possible if it weren't for Bob’s real estate expertise and his quick and smart decisions. I could have not asked for a better realtor than Bob Szarek. Working with Bob has been very pleasant and now I count him as a friend. I would recommend Bob to anyone!"

"I have known Bob Szarek now for almost a decade and had many transactions through him for both business and personal real estate. He is a man of integrity that never spare a chance to stand by you firmly and give you an advice even if that could affect his business or commission. He looks after you and make sure that your transaction is fair and well taken care of. He is so dedicated and diligent at his work no wonder why he has built such a great reputation in the community and between his peers. Bob has the spirit and energy of twenty year old which he attributes to his "resilient polish blood". You will feel this spirit believe me from the first phone call."

"Bob, we thank you for the awesome job you did selling our home. Bob listed our home on Sunday, set up a showing for 10am on Thursday of the same week and returned with a full cash offer 3:30pm the same day. If you want to sell, buy, or need movers. Bob will get it done with your needs being his number one priority. Bob is the best realtor we have ever dealt with."

"My fiance and I used Nancy Diluciano, as our real estate agent to help us find our perfect home. We had seen a couple houses prior to finding our home but once we walked in we all knew it was the one. She was extremely helpful in so many aspects of the home buying process including helping us to see the potential in each aspect of the home we purchased. She's very friendly and easy to talk to and more than willing to answer any of the questions you may have. I'm so happy we had her to help us find our first home."

"If there were a 10 star rating, that's what I'd give Bob. EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of our time with Bob was terrific! His professionalism, friendliness, prompt response always and honesty is what I feel sets him apart from anyone else we've ever worked with...and we've worked with alot of agents over the last several years! Both in the US & Canada! Hands down would recommend him to any friends or family looking for a home in the Cleveland area. We enjoyed our experience with him selling our Westlake home so much that we've engaged him again to help assist us with buying my Mom a home!! Thumbs up! :-) A++++"

I wanted to just thank Bob for the outstanding service in all aspects of the sale of my home in Crocker Park.  Not only was the time from listing to closing remarkably short, but I believe both myself and the buyer arrived at a fair price within a rational process.  Your market knowledge and relationships with the bank and title company clearly assisted in the process. 

I've been in the hospitality business for the better part of three decades and I've bought and sold more than a dozen homes.  Your level of service was remarkable and this was by far the smoothest real estate transaction I've ever experienced.  

I wish you well.
