About Robert “Bob” McLaughlin
Communication is the cornerstone of REALTOR® Bob McLaughlin’s Jersey Shore real estate practice.
Whether it’s listening to a client’s needs, explaining the “what and why” of real estate processes, or marketing online, Bob strives to save time, avoid misunderstandings, and simplify transactions through clear and complete sharing of information.
Toward that end, Bob believes in having all the facts his clients need. Thus, in addition to staying on top of local market values, he keeps up with taxes, utility costs, municipal services, and proposed changes in local zoning that could affect a client’s future satisfaction with their new home.
And that’s not all. Since Bob is an “almost life-long” resident of the Jersey Shores, he can answer questions that have nothing to do with real estate – but everything to do with getting acquainted and enjoying all the Jersey Shore has to offer.
Of course, this knowledge spills over into helping clients choose a home, since most people prefer living in close proximity to the amenities they use and enjoy.
A graduate of Ocean County College, Bob is also a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. Before turning to real estate sales, he used that skill to specialize in Internet marketing for the mortgage industry. Now, at a time when 90% of all buyers begin their home search on the Internet, he uses his marketing and computer expertise to give his listing clients an edge over the competition.
Clients describe Realtor Bob as a realist – one who won’t hesitate to advise his Jersey Shore homebuyers to keep looking if a home has issues that could mean trouble in the future. He takes pride in being known as “The agent who will watch your back.”
At the same time, his knowledge and experience allow him to offer insight into simple upgrades, changes, or additions than can transform a home from “OK” to “just right.”
When he’s not busy with clients, you might find Bob on a golf course, out catching blue fish or summer flounder, crabbing with his nephews, or “heading to the hills” for a day of snow skiing.
When you’re looking for a Jersey Shore REALTOR® who will make your wants and needs his priority, call Bob McLaughlin.
You’ll soon see why past clients are his biggest fans.
