Thank you very much for all of your help with the sale of North Park… You are a great Agent. You have a great personality for this difficult business and have the excellent business acumen to back up your sales strengths… I have met many Agents over the years (in my line of business) and you are in the elite group.~ Jeff Springer, Rate Plug

Robert and his extremely capable team were consummate professionals throughout the entire sales process. By its nature, a residential sale is an arduous, time-consuming and complex process. And it requires dedicated, efficient effort from the real estate agent and his team. Robert and his team not only met the challenges of the sales process, but they exceeded my expectations.

My listing and resulting sale were handled at the highest level, with careful attention to detail, and steady follow-up - all the things necessary to achieve both the seller's, and the buyer's goals. I would highly recommend Robert, Adrienne and the rest of the Baird & Warner team in the future.  Thank you guys!  ~ Robert Allan

Robert John Anderson knew our building and neighborhood well. His affinity for the place translated into a happy match for a new owner. ~ Tony Garton

July 21, 2012

We've had over 17 real estate transactions to deal with over the years and the two sales you represented us with have been by far the most professional experiences. You and your team exemplified success. Thank you so much for all your efforts. Couldn't have done it without you.

Sincerely, Jim and Delma

We used Robert to sell our home in East Village and purchase a condo on the Near North Side. On the sell, Robert was attentive, offering several open houses and following up on all interest. on the buy, Robert listened to our wants and impressed us with his persistence as we negotiated the purchase. Overall we found Robert to be easy to work with, responsive and professional. It was a pleasure working with him. - Mary Pat & Paul Reilly

Robert has been a wonderful realtor. He has stuck with us through thick and thin during a long and at times frustrating search. We would have no hesitation using him again or recommending him to anyone. ~Kenneth P.

I agree completely with Kenneth. Robert was the "other" realtor when we bought 360. We were impressed then, so we called Robert when we moved back to Chicago and needed to find a bigger apartment. Robert has done even more than expected. He found us our architect, he took an interest in plans for our various apartments and didn't give up even when I did. I will miss speaking to Robert when we sell 360. ~Lydia P.

Robert didn't waste time pitching properties I wouldn't like. We defined my needs and he honed in on things that met my criteria.  - Laura 

March 7, 2012

My wife and I had little hope we would find something that we both would like when we started the house hunt.  We had drastically different tastes in homes, a limited budget, and we were only in Chicago a few days a month.  Then we met Robert.  After showing us just a couple places on our first trip, he pinpointed exactly what would make us both happy.  Then he found the home that would provide it.  We both fell in love with the place.  He was with us every step of the way until we got the keys, treating us like we were his only client.  From making us laugh to finding us a hardwood expert, Robert made the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.  In the end, we got more than just a roof over our head.  Robert found us a home where we plan to someday raise our children and grow old. – Ross & Sarah Bendik, 31 E.

Over the years, I have done several real estate transactions with Robert. He is the consummate professional. He knows the market, provides great advice and service and, bottom line - gets the job done. He is truly top-tier and I would recommend him without reservation. ~ Kathryn Krivy

This is the third transaction we have completed with Robert Anderson. Obviously, that in itself is a testimonial to our satisfaction with Robert as an agent. We have dealt with several agents having lived in the Streeterville area since 1976. My husband and I would definitely rate him as one of the most competent, informed, and service oriented agents we have experienced. He is highly professional and motivated to “get the job done”.   Robert enjoys the intricacies of residential design as exemplified through floorplans special flow, material selection, products, and execution. It is a pleasure working with Robert as both buyers and sellers. He is a great role model for the profession, which at times suffers from poor representatives. Baird Warner is fortunate to have Robert Anderson as part of their sales staff. ~ Thea Berggren & Wilhelm Borntraegger

Robert’s name was given to us by a friend.  Before we met with Robert we emailed a short list of things we were looking for in a building to him.  In three weekends he showed us a wide range of things.  It was a wonderful experience because Robert listened to us and showed us properties in our price range that fit our needs and in  neighborhoods that fit our lifestyle. We ended up buying a property that he showed us the first day out.  Robert knows, buildings, people, neighborhoods and anything else you might need to know in Chicago.  We wouldn’t dream of using anyone else.  -Jack & Polly

Robert Anderson worked his magic by selling our home for asking price in the worst housing market in recent years.  His enthusiasm for the property was infectious & his aesthetic, appreciation, enormous energy & brilliant marketing skills led to 2 viable offers just after the house had been put on market.  He has a wonderful way with people & is highly perceptive in understanding the needs of his buyers & sellers. I'd give him the highest recommendation possible. - Marilyn Rusnak, 2222 Geneva
October 17, 2011

Robert Anderson and his team were fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone.  He sold our house in 4 days at a price higher than any other Realtor said we could get.  Then he showed me over 20 condos to buy with two being really outstanding and he helped me buy my favorite at a discounted price so he was great on sales and acquisitions.His partner who came to the closing and took really fantastic photos of the house which helped to sell it was also very good and his assistant Lisa Gregg was wonderful to work with she answered everything immediately and coordinated well with Robert. - Ray Rusnak, 2222 Geneva & 2130 N LPW

We have the great pleasure of advising you of the marvelous experience we have enjoyed with Mr. Robert Anderson in the sale process of our home. We have known Mr. Anderson for a few years having met him through others who had nothing but praise for his professionalism and capabilities. In fact, we recommended Mr. Anderson to several people should they decide to buy or sell a residence in the city. When we determined to place our home on the market for sale, there was only one choice for us to list our home…Robert Anderson.
Our decision has been greatly rewarded as evidenced by our experience in working with Mr. Anderson. Clearly his successful track record is a reflection of many years of hard work, intelligence, knowledge of his market, his ability to match appropriate prospects with products being offered, dedication, and excellent business standards and ethics. As a result of the foregoing, his advice and various recommendations were “right on the mark” and proved to be correct.
In addition, Mr. Anderson is an absolute pleasure to work with as he combines professionalism with a personality to which clients and prospects gravitate.
In short, we hold Robert Anderson in the highest esteem and he will be the agent to who we recommend others. In fact, we have already recommended one prospect contact Mr. Anderson in the search for a residence.  ~ Joanne T. & Gregory S. Junkin, 1340 Sutton Place

Thanks for all your help and guidance.  As you know, we went through a thorough process when it came time to sell our unit and we know choosing you to represent us was the right choice.   You did a great job and entertained us every step of the way!  Again, thank you for everything. - CJ & Stacy Dempsey

I met Robert while visiting an open house an was immediately disarmed by his ability to both engage me in the details of the property and ask all of the right questions.  His command of the Chicago real estate market and his understanding of the nuances of the city have been invaluable to me.  Robert consistently brings opportunity to me and his expertise in new construction has assisted me in reaching my personal and financial goals.  ~ Jonathon Bradley
September 1, 2011

I would rate Robert with a “10”! I can not say enough about what a wonderful agent I had. Robert listened, had the knowledge and was very professional. He looked out for my best interests and I must also compliment his assistant Lisa, she was a great help. – Deborah Okleshen, 2210 Evans Road
August 20, 2011

Robert spent time to understand what I was looking for and helped me get a great property in a really short time period.  I felt like he was on my side through the whole process, and his advice and counsel was invaluable.  He went beyond the call of duty to recommend resources that he'd had great experiences with and made everything easier for me. ~ Kelly Hundt, 3810 N Hamlin

Top in his Profession! You deserve recognition.  I had lost hope that we would sell. You helped bring up the sales price in conditions of severe competition and depressed prices. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ~ Rada Doytcheva, RADA Architects, 1322 N. Clybourn – LEED Silver Certified

Thank you so much for marketing such a beautiful home.  We moved in, but are still unpacking boxes and moving furniture, it seems like the work is endless.  To make a long story short, we simply love our new home and feel so fortunate to live where we do, THANK YOU!!!- James and Jessica Franke, 1250 N Paulina

I wanted to thank you for doing such a fantastic job with my parents. They both loved you and you did a great job making relationships with each. I simply cannot believe how well and fast the house sold. Incredible!   - Katie Herman

I am grateful to you for the years of support (and patience) you have shown towards me, leading to my purchase at 330 W. Diversey.

Robert really tries to understand what a client is looking for and strives to get a sense of their style and requirements. He does a great job at identifying an initial offering price and then negotiating a good sales price. - Tamara Brion, 738 W Buckingham

It is a tough market and seasoned players like Robert have the ability and patience to bring deals together. This is no time to work with people that are still learning. Sellers need people like Robert and his team. – Clif Wilson, 2241 W. Shakespeare
