My Testimonials ....

Bob Sheldon gave us good advice on a number of the most important aspects of the process leading up to the sale of our home.  He is a man of integrity and honesty, and he managed the myriad details of the process without missing a beat. He was responsive to our many questions along the way - and he displayed patience and understanding in handling those questions. He has considerable expertise with the outer cape home market, and we recommend him highly!

Hi Bob,
We chose Bob Sheldon of REMAX to handle the recent sale of our Eastham, MA home.  Bob was invaluable applying his local knowledge of the cape and professional service to this daunting process. 
Final details of sale, septic, plumbing, fire and water inspections were facilitated by Bob which was a great asset to a seller who resides in New York.  This was our second real estate transaction with Bob Sheldon and  we recommend him highly and confidently.
Eddie and Debbie A. (Rockland County, New York)

Our home sold promptly and Bob was a tremendous help navigating all the requirements for agency approvals, including everything required for a new septic system. Bob is well organized, knows all the regulations, has good recommendations, and gets everything that's required done promptly and on time. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a realtor to sell their home.

Sorry it has taken so long to write this note, but we have been too busy enjoying our new Cape home! We wanted to thank you for all the hard work and guidance in our purchase. We had been looking for many years and the prices finally fell enough for us to jump in. You made the whole process fun and easy for us; from looking online at houses to driving around in the offseason to actually see them up close.

Your patience and fortitude in guiding us through buying a foreclosed property was greatly appreciated, and I do not feel we could have pulled it off with out you. Your combination of local knowledge, great interpersonal skills, computer savvy and quiet strength made the whole process well worth it.

Thanks to you, we hope to spend many a fun summer on the cape, surfing, sunning, and introducing B. to all the fun.

Truly heartfelt Thanks!,
T., A., & B. C. (of Massachusetts)


Bob Sheldon helped us find our dream vacation home on the cape through what I can only describe as patience and perseverance. Bob was sensitive to our price range, showed us a full range of properties in the area we were interested in but most importantly counseled patience in sticking with the place we eventually bought. Since we bought a forclosed house, more went wrong than right in the process with the seller, but Bob stuck with us in making the deal happen. Because of his counsel and patience we got the house we were after.

It didn't stop there however. The house we ended up buying needed a tremendous amount of work. Bob gave us great recommendations for contractors and put us in touch with quality people of all variety who service houses on the cape. He stuck with us and helped it all come together. If you're looking for someone to find you a home on the cape, call Bob. :)

"Just a short note to let you know how pleased we were with how the purchase of our new home in Eastham went this past fall.

We found you to be easy going, organized, knowledgeable and personable.  You anwered all our questions, from building code and home inspection requirements to obtaining financing and legal.  All your professional referrals were first rate and helped the closing process proceed quickly and smoothly.  You obviously enjoy your work and it shows in your people and communication skills.  Thanks again for all your help and we look forward to seeing you as neighbors next summer! "

M.R. & T.T. (of New York)


Thanks for all your work on our property and my mother's.  She is doing very well since we moved her here.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.  Even in times like this the Lord is in Control (as evidenced by the selling of our land) and we must keep looking up as His return is close. May He bless you richly.

Hi Bob,

You did a fabulous job for us. I can't tell you how many times we told each other we "lucked out" and got the perfect agent for our situation. It was a long and sometimes grueling process trying to find the perfect house being four hours from the Cape. When a property came up we were interested in you made the trip out worthwhile by scheduling a number of houses to look at.

The itinerary you planned was always very detailed and allowed us to make the most of our short visits. Although it took a long time to find the perfect home, you never lost patience and we never felt pressure from you to rush our decision. When that perfect house did finally come, your aid in the whole process from the starting negotiations through to the closing was invaluable.

Thanks again Bob. We love the house and hopefully will run into you when we are in town.

J. & C. F. (of New York)

Dear Bob,

Long overdue thanks for helping us make our quest for a Cape home a reality.Even though we were in the starter house market, you gave us the attention due a big purchase buyer. You kept in touch, flagged properties you thoughtmight be of interest, showed us many houses, and allowed full access to your listings. It was helpful to have access to listing addresses so we could efficiently decide which properties were worth a visit. We greatly appreciated your attentiveness, patience, good humor and generous sharing of resources and knowledge.

Responding to a last minute request about a listing (we were heading home to NY after a holiday weekend), you offered to meet us in twenty minutes at the house we ultimately purchased. It still amazes me that you immediately responded and gained access and (knowing it was a longshot), arrived in twenty minutes with your usual cheerfulness and enthusiam. Twenty minutes! Who else offers that kind of service in any field? Not many I have encountered.

When we proceeded through the contract, you kept us informed of important things due to keep the process rolling and provided resource lists for everything from cable tv service to repairs. You are a very good guide through the sometimes baffling road of real estate. We are delighted with our little house and greatful you were our guide. Many thanks.

E. and P. C. (of NY)

Hi Bob,

I was thrilled with the way you moved my property. In both of my experiences with you, you have brought only serious shoppers and have never disappointed me as a seller. You seem to have a great talent for matching shopper with a satisfactory properties and so the seller is never bothered with wasteful viewings. I plan on staying put for a while but if I ever needed to sell another property (or buy) I would surely be in touch with you. Thanks so much. I am thrilled to have my property SOLD

We want to thank you for all you did to help us find our perfect Cape Cod home. We began the process almost a year ago, and the amount of properties available made this an almost overwhelming experience. Your patience and understanding enabled us to find exactly what we needed, and your assistance through the closing process and beyond made us comfortable every step along the way.

We look forward to many years of joy with family and friends at this wonderful home.

Warmest regards,

M. & K. C.  (of Connecticut)

Dear Bob,

I want to thank you for all that you did to help us through the process of the purchase, right from the beginning to end. We are especially grateful for all the extra tips & advice along the way. We were impressed that you were always available if we had questions or concerns, even while on vacation in Alaska!

I hope you are enjoying the autumn weather & foliage. We look forward to getting to know the Cape better in all four seasons.

All the best,
E. & M. (of Massachusetts)

Dear Bob,
E. and I would be remiss if we did not take the time to thank you for your outstanding help to us in purchasing our "dream home" in Eastham.  Unlike other realtors, you really took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for, and with that knowledge, researched the market to find houses that fit our criteria.  In doing so, you saved us lots of time and allowed us to focus our attention on only those properties that truly matched our wants and needs. 
Once we found the right home -- which you had identified for us -- you worked with us every step of the way through the negotiations, inspections and closing.  Your assistance was invaluable in getting through the entire purchase process very smoothly and successfully.  And unlike other realtors we have worked with, you have continued to help us even after the closing with countless tips and practical advise to help us settle into our new community.  We can't thank you enough for all your help.
In short, you have been enormously helpful to us and we would very strongly recommend your excellent services to others who are interested in purchasing property on the Lower Cape.  When you work with the best . . . everything becomes much easier!
Thanks again for all of your excellent help, advice and counsel.  It has been a real pleasure working with you.
S. & E. P. (of Connecticut)

Bob, N.  and I would like to thank you for your perseverance in our five month quest to obtain this property. I know that the profit for you had to be at a minimum and your efforts to put this deal together were above and beyond. Again, thank you and hope we can stay in touch as neighbors.

T. B. (of Connecticut)

Dear Bob-

R. and I would like to thank you for your hard work and your commitment to us as our realtor for our new Orleans home.  Your service was spot on and you exhibited an amazing amount of patience and knowledge of exactly what to do to make our dream of owning a Cape Cod come true. You provided us with so much detailed information and helped us find the right people in adapting our home to suit our needs.

Thank you for all the help you gave us. If you ever need a reference, please let us know and we would be only too happy to send one along.


R. and S. L. (of Connecticut)

Bob, Just a brief note of thanks for the professionalism you bring to the Realty Business and to us personally. The plaudits and credits that come to our mind are: Integrity, honesty, immediacy, trust, friendliness, and representation to name a few. Your instant follow up, 24X7 availability, flawless representation of the seller are commendable and we thank you for being our representative listing agent.

All the best of success and you have earned it the old fashioned way..hard work!! Our best to you,

C. & E. G. (of FL and Eastham)


As we end 2007, G. and I would like to thank you for all your assistance in purchasing our home. We love it! As you know, we were a client of yours for about 5 years before we became fortunate enough to purchase this home. We will never forget your excitement and ours the day we toured an "aggressive" amount of homes, narrowed things down, went the next day and made our offer. Things went very smooth through the whole process, including the 20 minute closing!

So thanks again for your professional & helpful advice. We are so happy & blessed to have this home to enjoy Eastham, as we have for 17 years - but now to share with our family & friends.

G. & LL. N. (of NY)


Mrs. W. and I would like to express our appreciation for your efforts on the sale of our Lieutenant Island cottage. Especially your pursuing all the required inspections and remediation needed when necessary. Also, for protecting our interests to be sure everything came together by the time of closing.

Again, many thanks! We would recommend you as broker agent anytime.

Very sincerely,
B. and H. W. (of upstate NY)



S. and I want to thank you for all of your help in buying the property at 65 Alston Ave. Your knowledge of the real estate market on the outer Cape was a valuable asset as we tried to figure exactly what we were trying to accomplish. I think I was more frustrated than you when we came close on our first offer but could not come to terms with the seller. The next week end you just set us up to look at more houses on our list, even though you were in the midst of your daughters wedding and all the responsibilities that go with that magic event. Once we found our property, you stayed on top of the schedule of events and made referrals to excellent resources that we needed to satisfy the contingencies. With any luck at all, we will be part-time neighbors by next Summer.

With all of our best,
L. and S. O. (of 'upstate' Massachusetts)


This summer marks our 25th anniversary as a married couple, and the year we were finally able to become homeowners in Eastham, after renting for as many years! We want to thank you, Bob, for helping it all to become possible. More particularly, we are grateful for your friendly professionalism and sincere efforts on our behalf every step of the way, for your accessibility, and for your follow through every time we phoned from PA with a concern. From our initial acquaintance last summer, through and including the closing on our new home, this purchase process has been a pleasurable experience. Once we complete our renovations, we would very much like you to visit and share a toast!

Fondly, C, L, C, B, & Bezoar, too (of Pennsylvania)

Dear Bob,

We greatly appreciated your advice during the purchase negotiations, particularly your ability to create a "win-win" agreement for both us and the sellers. The suggestions you gave us for mortgages and lawyers were excellent. The inspector you recommended was very thorough, and you were kind enough to meet with him in our absence. You followed up well in subsequent negotiations for repairs.

We’ve bought and sold a number of homes before this, but no sale or purchase has ever gone as seamlessly as this one, (once we made up our minds!) We’re really eager to get back to the Cape this April, and we hope to have a chance to say "hello" to you again and to thank you in person for doing such a fine job for us.

Best wishes,
M & J.  of Michigan and Florida

Dear Bob,

The house is wonderful. Amelia has named it "Sweet heart home"! It is perfect for our family. Thank you for your time, advice & endless showings. Thank you for everything.

The C’s (of NY)


L. the boy's and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for helping us find our "dream house " in Eastham. After guiding us to our first home in Eastham a couple of years ago, we had a brief discussion about "trading up" some time in the remote future. Amazingly, through your open lines of communication and intimate knowledge of the market, we were able to make it happen in only two years! Not only were you able to find us a beautiful home in an incredible location (with great neighbors..haha), but, during a flat real estate market, you employed innovative techniques to sell our previous home within a couple of percentage points of the asking price.

Thanks again Bob. Hope to see you soon.

Sincerely, Anthony (of NJ)

Bob – It has been a year since we closed on our “CapeEscape” and we continue to be so thankful you are our Realtor. From the moment we met, you quickly sized us up, and help guide us in a direction that made the most sense for us and our family.

When you located our dream vacation home you helped us see what an incredible location it was for our family, and then helped us through the process to closing. Your knowledge, dedication, and passion for customer service is second to none. We have a great house with a fantastic location – all thanks to you.

We’ve also been amazed at your service after the sale. You never disappeared, continuing to provide your warm, personalized service after the sale, and have been a great help in providing quality referrals to local craftsmen.

We can’t say thank you enough – we will recommend you to everyone we meet. If you’re considering buying or selling on the Cape, make one phone call to 508-237-9545. Bob is the Realtor you want on your side. He makes dreams come true.

Thanks Bob!

We saved this day, Thanksgiving Day, 2006, to thank you for your faith in us and recognizing our passion for our house on [S.] Road.  G. saw the house on Craig's List and was immediately captivated. She e-mailed you and within minutes, early on a Sunday morning, you called her. That moment has changed our lives in the most remarkable way. That was in September. On October 11th we closed and today we can enjoy our first Thanksgiving dinner, like our ancestors have, 1/2 mile from 1st Encounter Beach. It could not have been possible if it were not for your enthusiasm, your faith in us, and your ability to recognize our particular vision for home that was suited for us. Besides this, you have been a contact for critical services, a friend, and a mentor to us, newbies as homeowners on the Cape. Bob, we thank you and hope to see around the town.
R. & G. E., now of Eastham (from NY)

Dear Bob,
K. and I are simply and positively thrilled with our new home and we wanted to write to tell you how important you were in making the process smooth and easy, and how lucky we feel to have had you as our realtor.  From the first, it seemed to us that you were on our side, that you sincerely wanted to help find the perfect house for us.  And you seemed to "get" exactly what that was--though our "want" list was long and varied and our resources more modest than our dream.  You were always available for house-hunting; you were always on time for our appointments; and you were extraordinarily patient with our "we'll know it when we see it" approach. You know your town and your neighbors--you were both candid and informative when we asked for recommendations for local service people.  You went out of your way for us at every turn and you never let us down.
Thank you again for the large part you played in our finding our perfect, private, little house on a pond--just exactly what we asked for.  K. and I both feel that you are our first friend in our new home here in Eastham--hope you won't mind when we show up at your house for Thanksgiving dinner this year. 
A. & K. of Maryland

Dear Bob,

Thank you for all your help in making our dream of living in Eastham (while only part time) a reality. Your knowledge and professional manner made buying "long distance" easier than buying our first home local!! Thanks again and we hope you'll stop by in the spring!

C. & P. A. of NY


We wanted to let you know how much we valued the time and attention you provided us regarding the recent sale and purchase of our homes on the Cape. You were virtually available 24/7 and kept on top of everything. You provided us with good consul as we pondered both our decision to sell and buy. Above all, your knowledge of the changing market conditions was right on the mark. You represented our interest well, and it was a pleasure working with you.
