"Robert with @Properties was an amazing help to our home buying process from start to finish. No matter what time of the day or day of the week he was available to help us out and always had our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend his services to my friends and family."



"Robert helped us purchase a second home in Michigan, and he was GREAT! He was very available, responsive, and dealt with our overworked schedules and odd hours brilliantly. He is always cheerful and helpful, clever with negotiations, and he went above and beyond to make sure that all the details were just right. He kept track of everything we needed, and was organized and honest. We recommend him, and have asked him to help us negotiate as we hope to expand our property as well! THANKS for all you did, Robert!"



"Robert was great ! We had some problems with the home we were buying but he helped us resolve the problem! He was very knowledgable and was willing to go the extra mile to make our dream of owning a 2nd home for our future retirement and bring friends and family there to enjoy. We would recommend him to anyone . He will also be a lifelong friend and still keeps in touch with us for information about the area."



"Robert worked with us to purchase land for a new office building. Robert walked us through every step and went ABOVE and BEYOND when hiccups occurred from the seller's side. He was extremely attentive to us, gave us regular updates and did more leg work to get the deal done than I feel most realtors would. His service and professionalism are beyond compare. He is so knowledgeable on so many topics that he made the experience very easy and fun. He was our hero right up to the nth hour before closing to get the deal done! We are so appreciative to Robert - we plan to have a statue built in his honor at our new building! : )"



"Robert is very attentive and listened to what we were looking for. He is friendly and personable and very professional. We used him as seller and buyer agent and could not have been more pleased with the entire experience!"



"I have sought out the guidance and expertise of Robert (And Renny) multiple times when purchasing, or selling. They both are very hard workers and will work hard for YOU, the client. Robert is our "go-to-guy" when we have questions, and need answers, real estate advice, or referrals. Robert brings a wealth of knowledge and has earned the title as an "expert" in his field!"



"Robert, helped us purchase a second home in St. joseph MI. He was fantastic to work with and helped us through the entire process. He has the upmost integrity and his follow up was amazing. We recommend him highly!

"Robert was on the ball from start until finish. He set up quite a few showings and was always on time and prepared with background info. We found a house that we loved, placed an offer, and closed 30 days after it was accepted. This was our first time buying a house and it went perfectly. Robert was also very knowledgeable about home inspections and always made sure we knew what to expect from each house.
Because it was my first time buying a house I had many questions and I called Robert often. He answered the call immediately about 90% of the time and the rest of the time He called me back before the end of the day, usually within the hour.
I could not have asked for a better agent."



"Robert Kaufman came to us through a friend. Our friend is a Coldwell Banker realtor in New Jersey and she called the Coldwell Banker Realty office in SWMichigan and got Robert. She interviewed Robert to make sure there was a fit with our goals and objectives and his style and philosophy. We made contact with Robert and the connection was immediate. He was very helpful and very upfront and direct with us. He made it clear we were looking in an area a little further east of his service area and his knowledge of the area was not as extensive as it was in his service area. Robert said he would work with us to find a home that fit our wants and needs even though we were looking outside his service area. Robert did indeed do what he promised. He was very responsive, has excellent communication skills and walked us through the process every step of the way. His knowledge in general contracting and inspections brought an extra layer of knowledge to the table. We couldn’t be happier with our home and would refer Robert without hesitation. We found a very good friend in Robert Kaufman."



"Renny and Robert are amazing! I never felt lost because they were there for me every step of the way. This was my first time buying a house and I had no clue what I was getting into. I don't feel as if everyone is as Iucky as I am with their realtors. They made it their personal mission to get us into the right home. Honesty and loyalty are hard to come by these days but that is exactly what you get with Renny and Robert."



"It is with confidence that we rate Robert Kaufman among the best of realtors based on our experience of buying and selling many homes throughout the U.S. We turned to Kaufman after a dismal experience with another realty. Kaufman's background of living in Michigan was a strong point in his ability to focus on the right market for selling our property. Our house sold quickly and he negotiated an excellent price. . We lived out of state and we relied on his expertise from the listing to the closing. In addition to his proven professional qualities he personally extended a hand above and beyond to help with the move of our individual belongings in our absence.

"Robert went out of his way to show us several lake houses. Given just weekends to look, he lined up several for us to look at and helped us find just the right one. We couldn't have been any happier with his assistance! We love the house we have!"



"After looking at several houses with several different listing agents my wife and I viewed a home with Robert Kaufman and knew that we wanted to continue our search for our home with Robert's assistance, knowledge and guidance. As it was our first home buying experience we greatly appreciated Robert Kaufman's patience and response to our frequent questions and concerns. He was informative and educational in the process and he was quick to learn and respond to our preferences. Robert brings not only guidance in market knowledge, but also home construction as it was evident that he has a firm grasp on the "contractor knowledge" of homes. Communication via phone and email was effortless as phone calls were answered personally or messages and emails were promptly returned. Though we were looking at lower budget homes we felt as though Robert was just as attentive to our needs as one would expect from a homebuyer seeking premium real estate. I can not bring to mind how many homes we viewed with Robert before deciding on what now is our home. However we always felt that Robert was eager to help and he reassured us numerous times that he was willing and happy to show as many homes as needed to find us the one we were ready to buy. We felt the enthusiasm for a our first home was reflected by Robert and our entire experience with him as our realtor was enjoyable and positive."



"Robert went the extra mile in using his local contacts to smooth the way. He clearly knows his business, and his consistent responsiveness and upbeat style were much appreciated. He stayed by our side through a lengthy process of finding the right place. Thank you Robert!"



"Renny is great! I’m in the process of finding my first home, she is always just a call or text away! She gives me honest feedback and always willing to listen if I’m not sure about a property!"



"We have had the pleasure of having Robert Kaufman as our Real Estate Agent for our most recent home purchase and past transactions. He has a wealth of valuable information & we especially appreciated how he protected our interests. Would recommend him and call upon him again if the need arises. It was a pleasure working with him."


"Robert Kaufman did an outstanding job for us during the course of our house purchase. He was always more than timely with information about the transaction and went out of his way to make sure things were well coordinated with all of the parties involved in the transaction. A true pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!"



"Renny was very friendly, honest and direct. She was very helpful in gathering local ordinance information and referring experts necessary to complete the purchase of our home. If you are looking to purchase real estate, I would highly recommend using Renny Mills, who will look out for your best interest."



"I've been trying to find a home in four different states, and I can state without hesitation that Renny Mills works harder than any Realtor I've met. She wants to help you find what works for you, whatever your reasons. She's willing to research things no one has asked her before. She knows a bunch of great people to help you inspect and protect your future home, and she'll be gently pushy about anyone or anything that has previously failed to live up to her standards. She can handle being a dual agent, and she has the names of a couple of excellent lawyers to interview to look for association oddities.

I found the perfect "for now" house, and when I am ready for a different one, if she's still selling houses, I know she'll help me find that "next" house and find the right people for this one!"



"Renny helped me find a home in Michigan when I moved from Illinois. She pointed out the advantages and disadvantages of various properties I was considering, and we ultimately found the one available during the six months I was looking that best met my needs within my budget."



"Very detailed-oriented very knowledgeable returns phone calls hard to find this type of service highly recommend the Kauffman team they made my purchase easy"



"We listed two houses with her and quickly sold them! She's knowledgeable and well connected and the promotional materials were professional and perfect. We are looking forward to selling many more with her (and Robert)!"



"Renny Mills and the Kaufman group handled our recent sale.

The service was professional, courteous, effective.
Things could not have gone more smoothly.

I strongly recommend her and her group.

I know that I plan to work with her again."



"We had a very complex purchase and Renny was excellent in guiding us through the whole process. We now have the property we wanted and are ready to construct our dream cottage. Can't say enough about Renny's skills in putting together the "deal". Highly recommend her."



"I highly recommend Renny for buying a home. She will work for You! I totally trusted her and she delivered. Where we really saw the difference in her versus others is that she is very savvy in the negotiating ($$) department. She got us the best deal, not to mention she is wonderful to work with. Renny has a professional yet down to earth attitude. You won't be disappointing!"



"When we started the process of selling our home she responded to my inquiry immediately. She gave us a realistic and honest assessment of what our home was worth. Renny was always upbeat and optimistic our home would sell in a reasonable time frame even when we were not. She was right on about sale price and time frame we couldn't have gotten a better realtor in Harbor County."



"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Renny on the sale of my home. She provided great guidance and advice, as this was the first time I have sold a property. She is truly professional and extremely responsive. Renny get me up-to-date and informed through every step in the process. I would definitely work with her again and highly recommend her."



"Renny managed to promptly sell a difficult property we had been trying to move for over a year. Despite being forced to do well more than her share of the process work, she successfully guided the sale and made my wife and I very happy."



"We were lucky to find Renny when looking for a home in SW Michigan. We weren't too familiar with the area and Renny went beyond the call of duty to make sure we knew and saw everything we needed to make a good decision. Since we have now lived in Sawyer, MI. for almost 2 years we couldn't be happier. Renny set our expectations very well and has followed up multiple times since we moved in to offer advice on where to go and who to contact.

If we look to move again Renny will be our first call."



"Robert and Renny are a great team!! Each is very knowledgeable, and whenever a contract or negotiation decision had to be made, they both made themselves available to help discuss options so I could make the most informed decision. They were very supportive along the way and helped lower the stress of the process!"


"Working with Robert and Renny was an extremely easy and fun experience. As first time home buyers, it was wonderful to work with realtors who had our best interest at heart and whose advice we could truly trust! They worked relentlessly to help us find the perfect home and to help make us comfortable with our decision. I would definitely recommend them!"



"Renny was consistent with her help throughout the process. She always was available for any request we had of her. Phone calls and emails were promptly answered. Renny was very accommodating with times and dates for meeting . She kept us informed, at all times, of properties becoming available and any transactions that came up. We enjoyed working with Renny....she made the transaction simple and stress free...."



"I would recommend Renny to anyone who is buying or selling a house or property. Renny clearly understands how to best market a house. Renny has kept us informed and has always responded to our calls promptly."



"Robert with @Properties was an amazing help to our home buying process from start to finish. No matter what time of the day or day of the week he was available to help us out and always had our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend his services to my friends and family."



"Great service! We loved Renny Mills and she worked well with us as we tried to find the perfect place."



"Renny has been a pleasure to work with with regards to marketing our house. All of our calls are answered in a timely manner. Renny stays in communication with us throughout this whole process. Renny's familiarity with social networking assures us that our home is being seen by as many people as possible. I would recommend Renny to anyone who is buying or selling a house or property."



"The person you want on your side of the table. 3 other agents tried and failed to sell my unique property. Robert got an offer in 2 months and a closing 6 weeks later."


"Working with Robert and Renny was a great experience. We had recently lost our previous home in a house fire and we're looking for a great place to start over. Robert and Renny took our situation to heart and helped guide us with their experience and knowledge to the right property. Our family could not be more happy with the personal connection and attention to our needs during this process. We are now in a fabulous home that fits our family and our finances."


"Robert was great to work with. He was very professional and really understands the St. Joe market."


"Robert worked diligently and tirelessly to market and sell our home. The fact that it sold on Sunday, December 27 - yes, two days after Christmas - is testimony to his efforts. His attention to detail made the process smooth and comfortable. I will highly recommend Robert to any and all."


"Great job walking us through entire process. Love our new home thank you!"


"December 8, 2015 Renny Mills & Robert Kaufman represented us as potential buyers in an extremely professional manner, displaying unrelenting patience during our relentless search for the right property. They were very knowledgeable about every listing we inspected, were never late for an appointment, and were available by phone, text & email 24-7. Renny & Robert represent an outstanding real estate team, with a vast amount of experience in the New Buffalo, Harbor Country real estate markets. They have a vast array of contacts, including service providers, rental agents, management companies and lenders. They supported us throughout the buying experience right up through the closing and have continued to support us on minor details subsequent to the closing. We would be proud to recommend Renny & Robert to anyone buying or selling real estate in Harbor Country."


"Renny & Bob made the purchase of my summer-home seamless. This was the largest purchase of my life and they were there every step of the way offering their moral support, guidance, and expertise. They were knowledgeable about the area and had solid relationships with reliable professionals. They put me in contact with all of the necessary resources to help facilitate the overall purchase including my home inspector, lender and attorney. They kept tasks on schedule, and even helped me coordinate service with the local utility companies. They took a complex transaction and made it simple. This was a tremendous help, particularly since I lived out of town. Many thanks Renny & Bob ~ you are an amazing team. We love our cottage in the woods!"

"October 6th, 2015 Robert has been not only a friend these past eight years, but he is my "go-to-guy" for real estate questions and needs; selling, buying, transactions, laws, codes and referrals. He has infused himself in the real estate community as an "expert" and truly has earned that title in his field. And yes, as he stated; two words. Customer Service! But, I will add on to that making it three words. EXCELLENT Customer Service!!!"

"Robert and Renny were probably the most responsive and pro-active realtors we have ever used. We began working with them merely by chance, my follow-up research confirmed we'd been lucky to find them, and our purchase experience really could not have been better, despite one small ultimately inconsequential glitch which we don't blame Robert and Renny for but for which they graciously took full responsibility. We will gladly recommend them when the chance arises!"



"Renny was wonderful and would recommend to anyone. Thank you!"



"Very kind, caring and professional. Extremely helpful and understanding. A true credit to his profession."



"After relentless searching for an agent I discovered Renny Mills and Robert Kaufman. Their commitment and communication skills were a warm welcome! If ever intend to sell the dream home they helped to find, I will certainly reach out to these two."
