Here's what they're saying:
My Sister has early onset Alzheimer’s. Rod couldn’t have been more patient with her thru the entire transaction of selling her home. He was always responsive and answering question over and over. He listed and sold her home in a weeks time getting multiple offers and more than our asking price. I highly recommend Rod for his professionalism and efficiency.Barbara Jacobs
I found Rod through Google after reading many glowing reviews, much like the one I am now going to share. For me, our meeting was a stroke of luck in what felt like was an unlucky situation. After having issues with our tenants and property management company I had decided to sell and was discouraged. Living on the east coast and owning a home in the state of Washington I had to constantly depend on other people to look after my home. Rod was one of the first people I worked with during those many years that I sincerely trusted. He is professional, thoughtful, honest, and hard-working. As I live far away, and had never sold a home before, I thought the process would be confusing and challenging. Due to Rod it never was. He took the time to explain to me what was happening and what my options were. He was transparent and managed my expectations appropriately. Communication was fluid and his responses were timely. The pictures he had taken of my home when listed showcased it's best side and were nicely done. It was a great touch. I honestly can't say enough good things about my experience, expect that I highly recommend working with Rod and the Bremerton Real Estate Company. Thanks Rod!Samantha Landers
I first met Rod when I was shopping for a house in Bremerton several years ago. He was the listing agent for one of the houses I was considering at the time. I was immediately impressed by his knowledge of the neighborhoods, his great advice, as well as his professionalism, and I remember thinking at the time ‘I wish this guy was my realtor.’ This year, when it came time for me to sell my Bremerton house, I called on Rod, and it was a great decision. I’m out of state these days and he made the whole process really easy, helping line up a great home stager, a landscaper, even helping me replace the stove to make the kitchen pop a bit more. We also happened to go on the market just before the Covid-19 crisis broke and, despite all of the restrictions, Rod ultimately found me a great offer that came in at an asking price that was well above the range that I thought I’d be getting at the outset of the process. I highly recommend working with Rod, and I wouldn’t even consider buying or selling in the Kitsap area again without his help.J. Higgins
Rod Blackburn had come highly recommended to me. He has many years of Real Estate experience. I had taken on the sale of my sister’s house in another state and I knew it might be a challenge to work long distance with a stranger. I couldn’t be more grateful for this recommendation! Rod was a blessing to work with on the sale of my sister’s home. Upon our first meeting at the house, Rod took the time to assess and understand the condition of the home. He evaluated our needs and he provided me with suggestions of what preparation and maintenance work would be needed to prepare the home for sale. He worked within our budget to best prepare the home for the market. He is very knowledgeable in both the real estate aspect, as well as the modifications needed to best sell the home for the best market price. Rod had such a very honest and matter-of-fact approach that made it easy to tackle the issues and work within our budget and in a timely manner. Rod made me feel comfortable throughout every step of the process. He was very easy to communicate with and was very quick to respond to questions, concerns, etc. Rod was very proactive in taking initiatives to follow through, yet allowing me to be very much involved. We were never out of touch. Rod really managed the sales process and used all the tools necessary to bring the house beautifully to market. He is incredibly professional, engaging, and absolutely fabulous to work with. Rod is very good at what he does!K. Lampe
I can't speak highly enough of Rod. He sold our house at over our asking price. He was so professional yet gave us really personal service. I highly recommend him!S. Rahder
This was my second time working with Rod. The first time was when I purchased a house in 2010 and now while selling a parcel of land. Each time working with Rod has been a pleasure. He is everything you'd want in an agent: extremely knowledgeable about the market, straightforward and honest, and puts your needs first. I've recommended Rod to friends who I want to keep as friends, and they've also been impressed with him. I may be partial, but I think Rod is the best realtor in Kitsap County, this won't be the last time I work with Rod. Thanks!"B. Meacham
We have been working with Rod for 20 years through several transactions. Rod is very knowledgeable, professional, and honest. Most recently, we used Rod to sell a house. There were some unexpected challenges that arose, but Rod dealt with them quickly and professionally. I have no hesitations to recommend Rod for buying or selling property in this area.M. Fowler
Rod is a terrific realtor. But first I must disclose that I am a nightmare client, very high maintenance with the need for constant communication. I had very specific criteria for purchasing a house and Rod was able to work within those parameters. He also previewed many of the homes, which usually is only done by accomplished dedicated realtors. His organizational skills were the best, and it showed during the inspection phase of my purchase. I’m an old dog homeowner, usually selling and buying every three years. The home I just bought was a FNMAE foreclosure. It was the most difficult purchase yet and the deal could have fallen apart. Rod’s tenacity and professionalism held it together. Now I live in a home that meets my needs within the city limits of beautiful Bremerton! I strongly recommend using Rod Blackburn if you want a skilled, get-it-done professional realtor.M. Chapman
