Kassandra & Kyle – Bought and sold a home with Rob
We were struggling with finding a realtor that we felt was honest with us, and a realtor with who we could trust throughout the process of selling our house. A friend of mine had mentioned to Rob that we were thinking about selling our house, and within the next day or two we had received an e-mail from Rob and he wanted to meet with us. Upon meeting with Rob, we immediately had a very good impression of him – he was very friendly, personable, honest, had good advice and seemed very reliable.
Since this was the first time we were ever selling a house, there was a lot that we didn’t know about the whole process. Rob was excellent to explain every detail, and did not get annoyed with our millions of questions. He was very reliable and was quick to respond by either e-mail, text or phone call. He was willing to have as many open houses as needed in order to try and sell our house. We had countless showings, and almost immediately after the showing Rob would contact us and let us know how it went – the pros and the cons. If there had been no movement on the house for a week or so (ie: no showings), Rob would come up with a new plan on how to bring more people in. After five months, and two offers that fell through, we finally had a third and successful offer and we had sold our house. Given all of the properties that had been for sale at the time, we were very surprised, but relieved to have had our house sold within five months, just at the beginning of fall, so that we could start the next phase in our lives, which was to build our dream home.
Rob’s communication with us did not end at the sale of the house. He continued to give us advice on building, and offered to look over contracts before we signed them simply as a favour, because of his background in construction. We were so grateful that Rob was willing to work with us, and for all of the effort that he put into selling our home. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is wanting or hesitating to sell their home!
Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication Rob, it was all much appreciated!!
Maggie & Mike – Bought a home with Rob
We met Rob when we booked an appointment to view a house he was selling. We had met a few other Realtors but none of them really seemed a good fit for us. At that viewing we talked to Rob for probably over an hour and we really liked what he had to say. He was friendly, personable and experienced. He gave us his card and recommended we attend his a First Time Homebuyers session (it is open to anyone- not just his clients). I really recommend this to any first time homebuyers, it really opens your eyes to all aspects of home buying- negotiating offers, the legal stuff and financing. It was after attending the HBS that we were sold on Rob as our Realtor. It really gives you a chance to get to know him and see how he will work for you. For us, he really took to heart what we wanted in a house and what our budget was and never once pushed us to go outside what we had budgeted or to sacrifice something we wanted to make it easier to find a house. He was patient and took the time to thoroughly answer any questions we had. Working with him was a great experience and we couldn’t he happier with our new home.
Kathryn & Dave – Bought and sold a home with Rob
My husband and I responded to an advertisement that Rob had sent around our neighbor hood and were looking for his opinion about our selling our home. We had interviewed other agents, but after meeting Rob, we hired him on the spot! Rob assisted us with every aspect of both selling our starter home and finding a forever home for our family. He connected us with outside professionals for any work that needed to be completed, he worked tirelessly to help us find our dream house and then negotiated and advocated on our behalf. Rob was always a phone call away, he went above and beyond to ensure that our needs were met! After we took ownership, Rob continued to be a friendly contact that we were always able to reach. We are so appreciative of Rob’s work ethic and attention to detail, and are forever grateful for his support!
Chris & Edy – Bought a home with Rob
We met Rob during an Open House he was selling. We were not only first time buyers but also new to Canada and the Canadian property market, Rob was very knowledgeable and helpful from the outset without being pushy. Although not yet his clients, when it became apparent we were not totally au fait with the Canadian system he even invited us to his ‘First Time Homebuyers’ session that he has created that very evening. We attended that same day and signed him as our realtor – he was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of buying a house from start to completion…even to the extent of putting himself at risk, personally getting rid of a hornet’s nest for us! I don’t know how many other realtors would do that!
Chris & Emma – Bought a home with Rob
Well Emma and I are settling in nicely to our first home. We can’t thank Rob enough for the hard work he put in to help us through the buying process, especially where we were first time buyers. Rob went over and above to help us get the perfect home and explained everything to us in detail. I have never had better client service. We could tell from Day 1 that Rob is passionate about what he does, knows the city well, and wanted to help us. I highly recommend Rob to help anyone with their next move. We couldn’t be happier. Rob – thanks for everything!
Rachel – Bought a home with Rob
An enormous thanks to Rob (and his behind the scenes team) for all of the work that went in to finding us the perfect home in Fredericton. He was attentive to our needs and answered every question we had, big or small. He spent hours searching for something that would be the right fit and now we’re all moved in and happy as can be!
Sean & Brittany –Sold a home with Rob
We’d like to take a moment to thank our realtor, Rob Hamel of Hamel Realty (Exit Advantage Realty) for his efforts and hard work. Initially, we opted a private sale, which seemed to go well for us at first but also made us the target of dishonest buyers. Rob originally contacted us to make some helpful suggestions, at the time we were skeptical about working with a realtor. After some failed offers we decided to take him on as our listing agent. Rob was always quick to answer any questions we had and willing to go above and beyond to get things done. Within 2 weeks of signing the agreement our house was sold. It is evident that Rob really cares about his clients and for that we are grateful. If your looking for a realtor in the Fredericton area we highly recommend Rob, he’s your “go-to” realty guy, whether it be the sale or purchase of your home. Thanks again, Rob
Heather –Purchased a home with Rob
I am grateful to have met Rob. It was by happenstance that I ran into him however he made the experience of buying a home much less stressful. As this was my first time buying a home I was intimidated by the process. I was impressed with Rob’s knowledge of so many areas. He was invaluable in the process because he was able to talk not only about the house as it was, but help provide a vision of what the house could be.
Rob’s dedication to his client’s is by far the best. In the span of under two weeks he took me to what is now my house 5 times to help me make my decision. His advice and patience in the process was very helpful. I truly felt that I had someone who was looking out for my best interests in the process.
I highly recommend Rob’s expertise, fierce work ethic and professional manner to anyone buying or selling a home.

Andrew & Taryn –Bought a home with Rob
Even working in the industry we weren’t prepared for all the nitty gritty details associated with our first house purchase. The First Time Home Buyers class is a great way to have a look at what the full process is going to be. Rob did an excellent job at making sure we knew what steps were ahead of us, but on top of that was able to take what we wanted in a house and find it. Rob made excellent recommendations when it came to inspectors, contractors, electricians and lawyers. Pleased with his service and his level of commitment to us and the process. Trust us when we say trust him, thanks again Rob.
Amanda & Tim – Bought a home with Rob
When Tim and I started to look for our first home, we were very overwhelmed about the whole process. Rob did a great job of walking us through the process! He really listened to our concerns and wishes, and we ended up with the perfect house! The home buyers session was also great, as it gave us the information we needed about legal requirements and mortgages. We would recommend the session to anyone thinking about buying a home!
Sarah & Michael – Bought a home with Rob
