When choosing an agent the experts say that the number one quality that you should be looking for is for an agent that wants to build a relationship and not just complete another transaction! Agents are paid by a commission structure and clients should avoid hiring an agent that is transaction driven. You will easily find that Rob and his team are "all about" building relationships, in fact, a high number of their clients become their friends too! Rob will take the time to work with any type of client and at their level of sophistication in the real estate business. You can be confident to know that Rob and his team put friendships & relationships FIRST before business, everytime; our track record is proven!
I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement, and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals.
A Big thank you to Big Rob. We liked how Rob was so knowledgeable about the area, and knew the history of the building and the previous activities within the property. There was no pressure to purchase and all of our questions were answered promptly and diligently. Big Rob has connections all around the area to ensure you are satisfied with everything from inspections, plumbers, construction contractors or what ever you require. It was a seamless purchase from beginning to end. We would highly recommend Big Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Shuswap area. Thanks again!!
I have used Rob McKibbon for a number of years both as a buyer and a seller, and can say without a doubt that I have never found any other realtor to be as knowledgeable, dependable, trustworthy and honest as Rob. Nobody in my opinion, knows the waterfront market as good as Rob. Over the past 4 years, Rob has shown me dozens of properties but I am very picky and have specific needs. Never once did I get the impression he was getting tired of driving me around the region or that I was wasting his time.It all worked out this summer as we sold my place in less than two weeks and are close to closing a purchase on another! I would highly recommend Big Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Shuswap. You wont be disappointed!

"Rob made the process of both selling and then buying my home easy. His knowledge and understanding of the local market gave me confidence that I was getting a fair price for my home when selling, and finding the right home for me when purchasing. Rob didn't pressure me but gave me valuable feedback and insight. He went above and beyond in helping me transition from my old life to my new one."
"Rob worked tirelessly to sell our investment property for us. If we purchase another property in this area Rob is the only Realtor we will call."
- Steve & Tina Hallwood
Rob went above and beyond to take care of our family. I am high maintenance, very, very high maintenance and Rob was a Rock Star. He not only found us the perfect house, he was also willing to find us a rental property if we needed. A true professional. We wouldn't use anyone else. On a scale from 1 to 10.... Big Rob is OFF THE CHARTS! Thanks again for everything Rock Star!

We were referred by a friend to Rob. Rob is a seasoned businessman experiencing great success in real estate. After interviewing him, we recognized good character alignment with our values and trusted that he could and would do what he presented to us. Collaborating with Rob quickly led to a very successful sales campaign where all subjects were removed from our home sale agreement only 4 weeks after being listed for sale!
- James & Goldie Wilson
Seller: Rob was friendly, cooperative and worked hard for us. I appreciated Rob's suggestions and attitude throughout the sale of our home! - John & Carol-Ann Lawson

- Jeremy & Lisa Tisdale
Rob and Lynn McKibbon were amazing to us , we know we would not have the home we enjoy today were it not for their kindness, generosity, and professionalism. We will highly recommend them and will enlist their help ourselves if the need should arise.,
- Don Clarke
We had dealt with Rob in selling a family cabin. We called him to view another cabin. In both cases he was easy going and listened to our desires, concerns and requests. He did not trouble us with unsolicited listingsor try to pressure us out of our comfort / price range. We felt that he was only going to approach us with appropriate listings. He gave us plenty of time to be thoughtful and reflective. It was a real pleasure and not stressful in dealing with Rob. When we wanted to view another property a few years later we knew that he was the realtor that we wanted to deal with. He was instrumental in closing the purchase of the place we were looking for.
We felt Rob was a true professional. He was fully prepared with time and knowledge to do a good job in all aspects of our purchase. I realize that giving all excellent ratings does not give Rob a direction in which to improve, but that is the quality of service we received from Rob.
- Bill Prytula, Salmon Arm
Rob was very patient and understanding of our need to look at many homes to understand the local market. He developed a good understanding for the house that we would like. Rob is very positive and friendly and made the house hunting process fun.
- Steve Gaskin, Celista
We appreciate Rob's commitment to our home search. We looked at many properties before settling on the one we purchased and he stuck with us throughout the lengthy process. His honesty and fairness are important to establishing trust with both seller and buyer.

Rob makes his job his life and befriends his customers in a unique way from other business interactions. His strong values are imparted through his transactions and led to trust and confidence in our real estate purchase.
- L Shaw / Pro-Air Heating & Air Conditioning

- Ralf Rutschmann, Salmon Arm
Rob has a great knowledge of peoples wants and needs, lots of web/online marketing to make sure the property gets the best exposure available with positive results. Awesome to work with and personally devoted to family, friends and the community.

Over the years we have dealt with many real estate agents and have found Rob McKibbon to be the most trustworthy as he showed integrity and commitment in all his dealings with us.
I had an excellent experience in locating a property in Salmon Arm with the help of Rob McKibbon. Rob was extremely knowledgeable of the properties in Salmon Arm and knew what to show me to suit me personally for location, size and price. I found him always quick to respond to any questions and issues. He was prompt in arranging appointments and explained all the details of the transaction thoroughly. I enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for property in the salmon Arm area.
- Elaine Thuncher
Rob was a fantastic Realtor! Our 1st time home buying experience was better than expected and very stress free! Through all the process we made a really great friend!
We found Rob had always done his homework and was well prepared to answer any questions we had about the area and/or the property we were viewing. He knows the area well and showed us around so we could become familiar with what the neighbourhood offered. Even on short notice, Rob made time available when we came to town to show us properties we were interested in seeing. He was always friendly, polite and accommodating. When we had questions we could send him an email and count on him getting back to us in a timely manner.
We would certainly not hesitate to use Rob's services in the future and he would be the first realtor we would recommend to friends and acquaintances who may consider moving here in the future.
Thank you, Rob. We are so happy with our new home!
"We have never worked with a Realtor who loves his work more than Rob. He has a strong work ethic as well as a wonderful personality. He goes way above and beyond the proverbial 'nine dots' and is quick to provide assistance at a moments notice. We are happy to say Rob has now become a good friend."
- Lynn & Doug
From start to finish Rob McKibbon made one of the most stressful experiences in life "plain sailing". His commitment to getting the job done was beyond anything we have ever seen. Thanks Big Rob you are always our number one pick and recommend you to all our friends and clients.
"From the outset Rob expressed a positive & constructive attitude regarding the sale of our home. He provided an objective & realistic analysis of the market compared to our home. He was relaxed & congenial, but most of all he convinced us that he could "make this happen"! His photography & presentation of our home was truly exceptional & the web presentation equally impressive, designed to garner max attention. He kept us well informed throughout the process and sold our house for what we wanted in a poor market. Well done Rob & sincere thanks from both of us." (excerpted from full letter of recommendation)
- Elaine & Fred
Rob has done a great job marketing our properties and we couldn't recommend anyone more. Our friendships have always come first and his nickname "Santa" is just a joke, almost? One meeting with Rob and I'm sure you'll be satisfied from there on in.
- Rudy Heyde; Heyde Family
Our relationship with Big Rob started when we listed our lakefront strata in Sicamous with him. He got it sold for us so quickly and effortlessly. Then we were at an absolute loss as to what to replace it with, there was nothing on the market we were interested in. Working his huge network of contacts, along with his knowledge of the market, Rob was able to find us our current dream home, that wasn't even listed. We absolutely love it. He really has his finger on the pulse of the market and shines through when given an impossible task. We now need to unfortunately relocate due to a career change and we have listed yet again with Big Rob. As well as our next purchase again will definitely be with Rob.
Rob in addition to being a leader in marketing, he possesses and works on the qualities of integrity and honesty at all times. As well as being clever, Rob is the most upbeat and positive person we have ever known. It is truly infectious. We would never even think of using another realtor.
- Nancy Fraser & Jason Hornby

Rob did a great job selling my hobby farm. Others tried, but he did it and in less than a month. I really enjoyed his approach to real estate, he's got a huge technical background, thinks out of the box but is easy to deal with and down to earth. Rob cares for his clients needs and I'd recommend him to anyone.

Rob sold us a home over the internet! We hadn't even seen the house and he provided us with so much information including tons of photographs, lot plans, maps and info on the area that we placed an offer and removed conditions before even seeing the home. Rob was excellent to deal with and Lora and I would highly recommend him.
