Check out the Rave Reviews(testimonials) from a few of Bob’s Raving Fans!
Daniel T. – Seller
I want to tell that I appreciate everything you did during this whole difficult process. At first, I was contemplating going through the short sell process on my own. I see now that that would have been a grave error. Calling you was the best decision I made.
All stages of the process that you completed and helped me through was nothing short of tremendous. I am sure it is second nature to you but you made it a less than difficult process.
You explained every part of the process in great and accurate detail. This really helped me with knowing what my current status was and what the next steps were. I know that I was a difficult customer because of all of my questions and your patience was greatly appreciated.
I will recommend you to anyone that may be in my situation and I will use your service for any of my future home buying/ selling needs.
Thank you again for all that you did. It was much appreciated.
Christopher E. – Seller
After attempting a short sale with several other local area realtors that were supposed to be short sale specialists and them not having the drive, knowledge and connections which resulted in them failing to close multiple deals I performed a search for Short Sale/Foreclosure Professionals around the Pensacola Area. I contacted several realtors and left messages. Needless to say Mr. Hanley was the only agent to answer and he answered quickly. Every question I had he answered, and he put me at ease that our need was now in the hands of someone who can and will get the job done. Am I ever glad he answered. From the get go he was easy to work with. His communication skills, persistence, connections, knowledge and professionalism is second to none. He was by far the answer to my family’s prayers and worked tirelessly to make sure we were kept in the loop in what was going on with the sale of our home. He got the job done, established solid lines of communication that were easy to follow and understand, was easy to get a hold of throughout the whole process, and most importantly he didn’t give up. We are in North Carolina and our home was in Pensacola so all his qualities and skills were necessary for us to do everything (remotely). To anyone who is dealing with trying to short sale their home I highly recommend Mr. Hanley. He saved us and now we can move on with our lives without that ominous cloud looming overhead. Thank you Mr. Hanley if I am ever in Pensacola again I would like to shake your hand and take you fishing. Words can’t express the thanks I have for you.

I am extremely satisfied with your assistance. I only met with you
personally one time, on the initial visit. Everything else was completed
and/or discussed via email or text; I didn’t even have to talk to you on the
phone. You made it soooo easy. I paid no money to anyone; I had to
research absolutely nothing, and you provided information to me at my
convenience. I was not subject to a 9-5 only deal. The best, though, was
how you provided me with a means to collect rent on the home while the home
was in the short-sell process. I actually made $740 total throughout the
entire process. Amazing. Potential clients of yours have my highest
Thanks so much for everything,
The Scott Family– Buyers
Bob was a pleasure to work with, he was very knowledgeable with both the home buying process and the local market. He was very attentive to my needs usually providing answers to my questions instantly. I truly felt he had my best interest in mind and would definitely use him again and recommend him to others.

The Stigler Family – Buyers
Bob was recommended by a frined. We needed a house and came on a quick house hunting trip. After asking us some questions he knew what we needed to look for. He was very helpful and honest. He didn’t waster our time and he made our search and home purchase quick and easy. I would recommend Bob to any of my friends because I know he will take care of them as well as he took care of us.

The Schlemper Family– Buyers
Mr. Hanley was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very patient in answering questions and was always available. We knew very little about the home buying process and he endured our constant badgering with great grace! Working through buying a home, we got the impression Bob was much more interested in finding us a suitable home than making a sale. He was never pushy and encouraged us to take time to make our decision. He was very knowledgeable about real estate in general and realistic an his time-lines. When we were in a moving transition. Bob also helped us secure temporary storage, a service he was in now way reimbursed for. We chose Mr. Hanley on a friend’s recommendation, and gladly recommend him to any who are looking for a new home.

The Hughes’ – Sellers/Buyers
I have known Bob for about five years as a friend and faithful member of our church. Two years ago, my wife and I decided to downsize. I asked Bob to look for a house in a certain price range and location. He located one and helped us negotiate with the builder and we made the purchase. We’ve been extremely pleased and would recommend Bob to anyone. He was very helpful in making suggestions for the sale of our home, and for giving us information about the home we eventually bought. He is very professional in his work, and I would have no reservations in recommending him to our friends.

The Packers – Sellers
In the year of 2009 we had to sell our house, we had fallen upon difficult times. But you know when things look bad to the eyes, God begins to show himself strong. God sent Bob along to help us short sale our home. All went according to God’s divine plan by using Bob as His representative. He’s most demonstrated himself as a man of valor! I would recommend Bob to anyone to diligently get the job done. He’s most appreciated.
The Dreadin Family – Buyers
Recently Bob sold my husband and I a house. After being with another real estate agent for nearly 4 months and getting no where we needed a change. We called Bob to show us a listing and immediatly we were impressed with his knowledge of the industry and how straight to the point he is, especially in the forclosures and short sales that we were chasing after. Being first time home buyers we needed someone we could trust who would take our best interest to heart instead of just trying to make a sale, Bob fit that mold and made sure we didn’t end up with a bad deal. Today we are in a beautiful home and couldn’t be more pleased!

I am very happy with the home we have settledon. It needed a few minor repairs but otherwise it is just what I wanted.
Donald and I look forward to working with you again when we get ready to buy more investment houses.
Best wishes and talk to you soon!

The Till Family – Buyers
Our endeavor for a new home began around January 2009. We were renting a nice home in a nice neighborhood, with wonderful neighbors, but the monthly note was squeezing our wallets drip-dry. As our lease grew closer and closer to a close in May 2009, we embarked on determining a realtor for our needs. That realtor was none other than Bob Hanley.
We have known Bob for several years now and attend the same church together. Our decision to hire on Bob was based on his knowledge of foreclosed homes, which was our intended purchase, and the fact that we knew he would be dependable and trustworthy.
Bob was always very patient with us as first time home buyers. The communication with him was always timely as well. Most of the time our calls and e-mails were answered right away. If not then soon after our initial efforts.
We are happy to say that we are the proud owners of our first home as of July 2009! With the assistance of Bob as a our realtor, we got the job done and are living comfortably in our home. Eagerly, we look forward to finishing our “dream home ” as we enlist in the rewards of remodeling!

The Squire Family – Buyers
I just want to say thanks to Bob Hanley with Sellstate Realty for making our home buying experience go smooth. His knowledge and experience with foreclosed homes made purchasing the home easier. I was most impressed with his communication. Bob responded to questions in a very timely manner and always kept us informed. I would definitely recommend Bob Hanley and use him again in the future.

The Belchers – Buyers
My husband and I were newly weds struggling to find the perfect home in our price range last year. Finding the house was easy compared to trying to buy it! Negotiating was so stressful, especially on a foreclosed home. We learned that if we didn’t move fast enough, we’d miss out on a great buy. The first day we met Bob Hanley, he showed us a house and it was “the one”. We immediately put in an offer the same day and Mr. Hanley made everything go smoothly. He took the time to explain everything to us and was always available if we had questions or concerns. He never pressured us and was always patient. He was a dream to work with and we have recommended him to everyone we know. He truly is the best.

The Notke Family – Sellers
After having our home on the market for 10 months and having 0 offers come in, we decided to try a different Realtor. Luckily for us Bob Hanley answered my email back first. Within less than a week we had an offer on our home, which we accepted. Bob not only sold our home but he took immaculate care of it for us (since we now live 6 hours away). He not only met our expectations, but far exceeded them as he maintained the lawn care and our home.We are truly grateful for his help in our first experience selling a home!
The Corner Family – Buyers
I must say I was so happy to close. This whole experience left me feeling very fine indeed. We just want to thank you for all that you’ve done… you’re out of control awesome.

Dear Mr. Hanley,
I wish to personally thank you for your professionalism and integrity in the handling of the sale of my home in Pensacola. Even at the beginning of the transaction, I felt that I could trust you with the very delicate matter of selling a home under difficult circumstances. You never made me feel that I was a second class citizen, and I appreciate that.
I strongly commend you for your respect of me and my circumstances, and the credibility that you bring to the real estate business. You are indeed a credit to your company.
Again, my many thanks and congratulations on yet another sale and satisfied customer. I am assured that if I or any of my closest friends needs assistance in this matter, that I can again call on you for service, integrity and accomplishment. You do what you say that you will and that is a comfort in this economy.
Bob, have a happy new year and I wish continued success!!
Michael A. Johnson, Very Satisfied Seller!!
A customer for life!
The Amos Family– Buyers
My husband and I recently used Bob Hanley as our realtor while we purchased our very first home. During the house hunting process Bob was available to work around our hectic schedule, and happy to show us houses all over (even in the middle of nowhere). Being first time homebuyers, we were unaware of many rules, standards, and even opportunities- he explained so much! Bob did a great job putting things on our level, and we really felt he was looking out for our best interests. When we did find the house, Bob was so knowledgeable about foreclosures and always kept us informed about what the next step was. We love our new house, and we love Bob for helping us get it. Use him for your realtor- you’ll be so happy you did!
