About Bob Gilbert, e-PRO, SFR, GRI

I’m a 21 year resident of the Minneapolis area (and yes, I still have a bit of a southern drawl since I’m originally from North Carolina), a member of Rotary Club International, and a REALTOR® with Edina Realty.  When I’m not busy helping you buy or sell a house, I enjoy golf, boating, flying (although I rarely do it these days), and playing guitar.  I hold an e-PRO certification, an SFR certification, and a GRI designation.  All are from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the most widely recognized realty association.  I’m also a member of Edina Realty’s Exceptional Properties group, for properties over $500,000 however I don’t limit myself to that price range.  I’m available to assist you with your real estate transactions in all areas of Minneapolis and the surrounding cities.  As a full-time Realtor, I’m 100% dedicated to helping you achieve your real estate goals whether it’s buying the home of your dreams or selling your current home for the best price in the least amount of time.  When you list your home with me, you will always get photos shot by a professional real estate photographer, professional staging assistance if needed, and a marketing program designed to get your house sold at the best possible price, as well as weekly updates of marketing activity.

NAR designations and certifications:

An e-PRO certification signifies extensive training in the use of social media for business, therefore I know how to keep you informed and how to keep you in touch with me – but only as often as you want.  The real estate business has changed vastly in the last few years – the e-PRO certification indicates that I have changed with it!

The SFR certification is for Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource.  This certification indicates advanced training with distressed properties (short sales, foreclosures, and bank owned (REO) properties).  These properties are a very unfortunate reality of today’s economy but having the SFR certification enables me to help those who need it by showing them what options might be available to them if they’re having financial difficulties with their mortgages.

The GRI designation means Graduate of the Realtors Institute.  This designation indicates extensive training in home construction and inspection techniques, real estate business planning and procedures, tax and investment issues, Fair Housing practices, and much more.

My goal is to assist clients with their real estate needs in a professional, compassionate, and confidential manner.  Please let me know if I can help you!
