  •   After deciding to relocate to Williamsburg, VA, from the northeast a few months ago, I was very eager to find the right home and neighborhood for my     current and future needs. Bob Smolko of Re/Max All-American was patient, professional and persistent in my search for the right place, and, within a short time, he found me the perfect house and area for me. I am now comfortably looking forward to settling in, and I am very pleased with how smoothly the transition has been, due in large part to Bob Smolko's knowledge of the area, the marketplace and my individual concerns. I would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone who is in need of a real estate professional.

  •   Peggie Smolko was able to get my property sold in a very difficult market. Having purchased during what proved to be the peak of the real estate market in Williamsburg. My wife and I had our property listed with another realtor but we were unable to get any offers. Our situation was complicated by the fact that my wife and I live 200 miles away from Williamsburg. We had rented the property the past four years but we needed to sell this year. Peggie worked with us to (1) come up with the right sales price; and (2) get the "touch up" work done before listing it again. Within two weeks we had an offer and the property closed July 31, 2013. I was very impressed with the way Peggie took a "hands on" approach in overseeing the necessary negotiations and fix up work. My wife and I were able to close this without coming to Williamsburg. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

  •   Bob Smolko was the property manager of a home we rented in Williamsburg VA. We found him to be incredibly helpful in fixing or solving issues that would time to time come up regarding the house. He has an extensive knowledge of real estate in the Williamsburg area as well as a strong base of tradesmen that could solve problems. We enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone needing an agent or property manager.

  •    I was a first time home buyer with a limited price range and no idea of what kind of house I wanted. I was probably the worst possible client for a real estate agent. I think my exact words of the kind of house I wanted was the best house possible for my price range. Peggie showed me countless houses for almost a year and Bob helped me, personally, to qualify for a home mortgage. The best part of the experience was the peace of mind, knowing Peggie would only sell me house that she herself would want to buy. Some real estate agents only care about sell now but Peggie and Bob pride themselves on repeat business. They often times end up selling houses to the sons and daughters of whose parents they originally sold to. I chose the Smolko real estate team because I knew they would care more about me than their commission.

  •   Bob and Peggy found us a great home, at a great price in a short period of time. We were dealing with a foreclosure and an unethical agent. They got us the house before my wife had our first child and we got to have her nursery done in our first home! I cannot thank them enough for what they did for my family!!!!!

                                                                                                                                                   -Ian Heisel

  •   Bob and Peggie Smolko are complete professionals! They show a genuine concern for getting to know what the prospective home owner seeks and then provide realistic properties that meet and exceed the buyer's expectations. They are truly interested in representing the buyers and properties with the highest ethical standards and ensuring that, "What you see, is what you get." I have referred family and friends to Bob and Peggie and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence, knowing that they will be treated with respect and unmatched personal touch!

  • Bob and Peggie Smolko made our move from a town home to a rancher painless. They both provided positive guidance regarding the sale of our town home and the purchase of our rancher. When we decide to make the next move, Bob and Peggie will be our Agents.

  • The Smolkos helped us with our search for a vacation house. They were very patient throughout the process. Although we looked for a long time and saw many properties we never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. In the end we found a place that suited our purposes perfectly and were masterfully guided through the negotiations up to and through the closing.

  • I am a retired Realtor, when it was time to sell our home, I knew the best way to sell was through a Realtor. The hard part of choosing a Realtor it is harder when you have many previous co-workers in the business.. We choose Bob & Peggy Smolko on knowing how hard they work, They both are up to date in the latest technology, and they network with other agents. That is how he got our home sold in less than 30 days. Though they were not the Realtors that sold our home, they were responsible for getting it sold.

  • Bob and Peggie Smolko are a great team. We had the benefit of two people working for us to find a wonderful home. Bob and Peggie were always available and kept us informed every step of the way.

  • Bob and Peggie have been our "go to" realtors for over 12 years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to Williamsburg residents and newcomers. They won't just find you a house, but will listen to your wishes and concerns and find you the right home to live in and enjoy.

  • Bob and Peggie helped us sell our old house and buy the house we currently live in. Having known Bob and Peggie for over 20 years we have learned that they are extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and professional realtors as well as good, honest people. We have through the years recommended them to people looking to buy or sell their home or anyone with any real estate questions. We hope this is helpful to any future clients looking for a realtor.

  • I am a licensed Real Estate agent from Roanoke, VA. Often times, I must use Real Estate agents from other localities to sell properties on my behalf. I completed in depth research on my part to find a Williamsburg agent with the knowledge, marketing capability, and motivation that is required to sell a home in today's challenging Real Estate market. I could not have been happier with the services the Bob and Peggie provided. They were extremely proficient in handling the entire sale. Their marketing was fantastic and their knowledge of the business was second to none. Thanks Bob and Peggie for all of your help!                                    
                            -Jeff Manning
  • We have been looking for a house for a while before we asked Bob and Peggie for help. In less than a week we found something we liked. They helped us negotiate with the bank since the property was a foreclosure and we ended up getting a great deal on our home. Thanks Bob and Peggie for your help!

                              - Stefan and Yelena

  • I would never list or buy a house without Bob and Peggie involved. They know the area inside and out. They really take the time to get to know their clients and what the whole family wants out of the house buying experience. I highly recommend them to anyone needed to buy or sell a house. Do not miss your opportunity to work with this dynamic duo!

                                     - Tyler and Amy Yaugo

  • I was going through a divorce and had to sell my home. Bob and Peggie were so helpful not only with the sale of my existing house but helping me locate a property that was in my budget and in the same school district for my children. I didn't think that I would be able to buy due to the fact that I had just gotten a part time job and didn't really know the area because I had just recently relocated from PA. I don't think that I would have been able to secure my new home without the help of Bob and Peggie.

                         -Tina Nelson

  • From the first contact with the Smolkos I felt very comfortable working with the to sell out home. They were always reliable, interested in creating the proper approach to our "special" house, extremely knowledgeable about the area, ready to consider out viewpoint, but always guiding us with their superior knowledge of the area. So very helpful after the sale, storing some of our belongings, and finally actually bringing them to us in our new location. We are grateful to them for a friendship that will "never die".

                                        -Jim and Teresa Schwab

  • Bob and Peggie are both excellent! They have so much to offer with their knowledge of the area. They are patient when helping you find your dream home and exactly what your family needs. They are aggressive with selling your home and making sure it moves quickly for the price you want! I would never buy or sell a house with anyone else. Thanks for all you do!
  • Bob and Peggie Smolko have all the right connections to get things done. Well knows realtors in the area, they made my first home buying experience low-stress and provided me with all the information to make informed decisions. Being a first time homebuyer, all of the details from dealing with the banks to having inspections in place at the right time was a daunting thought. The Smolkos make this a smooth process, and were always available with any questions I had. Most importantly, the Smolkos make feel like I was their only client. They always knew the details of my contract, or an approaching deadline. I highly recommend the Smolkos and when it's time for me and my family to move on I will definitely be giving them a call.

  • Are you planning a move to Virginia from a different region of the United States? This could be an overwhelming task, but not to worry- The Smolkos will guide you and put you at ease with their expertise and caring hearts. That was our experience. We purchased a home from over 1000 miles away and Peggie and Bob were professional, knowledgeable, courteous and extremely caring. The Smolkos know Williamsburg and the entire surrounding area. They went above and beyond to guide us and help us find out home. No obstacle was too difficult for them to solve for us from half away across the USA. Bob and Peggie had the experience we needed and guided us through the entire process. They do not treat you like a customer-they treat you like family. Peggie and Bob are excellent listeners and will truly listen to what you are looking for in a home without pushing or creating their own agenda. We had excellent communication and we are lucky to have been the recipient of their services. Peggie found a home for us in a limited market, helped with renovations and continued with patience and kindness until we fell like we were a priority and just as important as all of the clients. The Smolkos are our Virginia guardian angels and we are luck to have worked with them. You will be too.
