My wife and I have bought and sold about a dozen homes during our forty years together. Since the deals closed, obviously our agents did their jobs, some better than others, but we thought we had seen it all. So, when we contacted Robert Boatright, imagine our surprise to discover that our expectations had been too low, and that Robert would set new standards for what to seek in a real estate agent.
Robert gave us his full attention. He was prepared, after a thorough discussion with us, with a full contingent of options in our price range. He gave us tours of the various golf course community options. He kept our best interests in the forefront throughout our negotiations, and, stayed on top of the details involved in those negotiations. Robert is able to anticipate potential roadblocks and has answers to suggest when they arise. He arranged for the various inspections, and then assisted us with obtaining estimates for the necessary repairs. At closing, he followed the details and ensured that all the i’s were dotted and t’s, crossed. He helped us understand our options for golf club membership and assisted us with subsequent details, such as marina storage for our new boat.
Robert does not consider his job to have been done after closing; he is always available when later questions arise. All in all, Robert made the process easy for us. Naturally, when we decided to look for a lake lot, we turned to Robert. His service was just as thorough and professional the second time. Whenever we decide to sell our lake properties (hopefully in the far-distant future), we will most certainly turn to Robert, once again. We have recommended Robert to our friends, several of whom have used Robert’s services with the same happy results.

We had been searching for the perfect vacation/retirement home for several years. After exhausting our options on the east coast we decided to turn our attention to lakefront property and discovered Lake Oconee. We were lucky enough to get connected with Robert, and after the first call, we knew we had reached the right agent.
Robert is extremely knowledgeable about Reynolds Plantation and the Lake Oconee area, and he took the time to listen to what we were looking for. After several trips his dedication (and patience) helped us find our dream home. He was there all through the negotiations and, once we reached an acceptable offer with the Sellers, he helped us navigate our way through the closing. We can’t tell you how helpful that was given we were out of state.
We are thrilled with our new home and would recommend Robert to anyone looking for a home in the area.
I am writing today to acknowledge the highest level of customer service that I have ever experienced in my real estate purchase history. Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee Realty provided this “top shelf” experience without a single flaw throughout the last six months of research, evaluation, negotiation and closing efforts. I congratulate you for putting together a team of individuals who are attentive and professional in all regards. In particular, my experience with your agent, Robert Boatright, was truly exceptional.
Robert was on duty at the Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee office on a Saturday following a meeting that I attended at the Ritz Carlton Hotel last February. After walking in with no appointment, he received me and listened carefully to my request for a quick overview of the area real estate. His vision at this moment was to establish a relationship and it was brilliant. His follow up was at a high level and I never felt interrupted by his communication. It seemed like he was engaged and always current with my needs.
We stayed in the resort area for a few weekends at Robert’s recommendation and as anticipated, we felt like we were more comfortable selecting a suitable home for purchase. He expertly handled coordinating the offer and we out-negotiated another buyer for the same property who had reached a stalemate with the seller that week. I give Robert the credit for our success in this regard.
Most importantly, it was Robert that insisted on ordering a new survey which revealed what could have become a potentially crippling financial outcome for me and my family. Based solely on his instincts and experience, a survey was completed that revealed a deficiency in the shoreline frontage for the dock on this property that could have negatively impacted my investment by $150,000 or more. The seller was notified of this shortage and it became their problem instead of mine. Now the seller was asking his legal team how this was missed instead of me possibly experiencing this liability one day in the future. Thanks to Robert, all issues were resolved by the seller and my purchase was eventually closed without event.
Congratulations again for a great experience. I would be more than happy to have you share this testimonial with any future client.

I found Robert to be very accessible he was excellent in helping us negotiate with the seller and when we sold our house, he was extremely attentive to details of selling our home as well. I would highly recommend Robert Boatright for any property in the Lake Oconee area.
This was my third time using Robert to help me with my Real Estate decision. Robert is very knowledgeable in the field and great to work with. I will never use any one else as long as he is in business. The thing I like about him most is that he made us feel like we were the most important clients he was working with.
I have bought and sold a lot of real estate over the years at Reynolds and several other states around the country. Robert is without a doubt the best agent I have ever dealt with. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, frank, hardworking and a great guy. He is already working on our behalf on another transaction. I have already recommended Robert to several friends interested in Lake Oconee properties. Bottom line is he gets my highest ratings.
Robert was amazing! He asked for information on what we were looking for and then provided us with multiple house listings that fit our criteria almost exactly. He really listened to our feedback on the listings he presented us with and then refined the search so that when we met with him to actually look at houses they were all houses that fit our wants and needs. One house in particular matched exactly what we were looking for so much so that we made an offer on a house after only one day of house hunting with Robert! Robert helped us immensely during the negotiation process and right on through closing. He never let anything fall through the cracks. We ended up with the BEST house on the lake at an amazing price!! What more could you ask for from a real estate agent? We have purchased and sold six houses over the years and we have never had a better agent than Robert. We can not say enough wonderful things about him and his professional expertise.
Robert helped us in our purchase of a lot to build our dream house on. He explained the whole process in great detail and communicated with us every step of the way. We would not have been able to get that lot without his knowledge and help.
Robert was absolutely wonderful! Very knowledgeable, and thorough! He had our backs during the entire process. We highly recommend you choosing Robert Boatright as your realtor. He is kind, honest, and extremely helpful.
As a practicing attorney, I found Mr. Boatright's level of professionalism outstanding. Robert has immense knowledge concerning Lake Oconee, as well as Reynolds Plantation and Cuscowilla. He was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, including after the sell. As a buyer, he was able to help us narrow down our search in just two Saturdays, and literally walked us through the entire process. Robert also possesses a keen ability to negotiate aggressively, yet very strategically, which is rare these days. I would not hesitate to recommend Robert to anyone.

"I never imagined when I reached out via the internet that I would ultimately be introduced to such a professional as Robert Boatright. Robert not only assisted in the selection of the right residence, he also understood the negotiating and contracting process from start to finish. That included the identification of other professional service providers such as home inspectors and contractors to evaluate maintenance issues. I would reach out to Robert again to handle any real estate related matters, as buyer or seller."

Mr. Boatright is the best of the best. I am a builder/re-modeler in the area and deal with many real estate agents. We are lucky that in this area there are a lot of good agents but Robert stood out to me. He is honest. Sometimes meetings with agents and potential buyer get's a little tense, but Robert always tells me 'to tell the buyers 100% the truth to any questions they may have. That is what I have always done.' That really impressed me. He recently helped my but a lot in Reynolds Lake Oconee and did a great job. I will use him until he rides off into the sunset.

Robert Boatright is a leader in his field and a professional in every way. He really listened to us on what we were looking for and worked toward meeting all our family's needs with our lake home purchase. Everything from the location we desired to the floor plan was exactly like we had requested. He provided gently guidance and was never trying to convince us to do anything other than what we wanted. There were three of us thus, three people to please and he dealt beautifully from start until after closing with each one. I would definitely use him again and hope to repay him by sending other family and friends to work with him.

"Robert Boatright is the quintessential realtor! We were very impressed with his knowledge of the different communities and the lake itself. He took the time to understand our priorities and was very patient with our many questions. He gave us excellent advice when negotiating our purchase and kept us well informed every step of the way. He also provided us with a list of excellent preferred providers that saved us immeasurable time. We wholeheartedly recommend Robert Boatright!

We had been considering the idea of purchasing a second home at Lake Oconee for some time, however it had been almost 16 years since we purchased a home. Robert was the exact real estate professional we needed. From the very first phone call, he made himself available and treated us like royalty. He explained every detail about the process as we moved toward the closing and helped keep the process moving forward from every angle. He instinctively knew when to give us some time to process things, while always staying a step ahead ready to guide us through the next step with his efficient but never pushy style. Thank you Robert! We love our Lake House and are thankful to have worked with you!

I used Robert to sell my house in The Landing and had a great experience. He took the lead on pulling together a strategic plan on how to land a contract fast! I would recommend him any day if you are interested in moving property fast.

"I have had 12 corporate relocation's coast to coast and upon second retirement choose Reynolds. I found a listing by Robert and checked him out only to find the best real estate experience ever with wife and myself. Here's what comes to mind, extremely professional-knowledgeable-balanced with very high rational and negotiation skills as well as great follow-up to every transitional need!!! He will be a great friend as we move back East from Arizona.

'Bottom Line: Robert got the job done! We only wish we had decided to have Robert list the house initially, but then we could not have fully appreciated the difference between a company that got nothing done for 5+ years and Robert, who signed on, paid attention to the listing and, then, sold our house in 90 days. We would use Robert's services again, without question.'
