"I have known Robert Barkett on both a personal and professional level for about 35 years.  I have been a real estate lawyer at two large law firms in the Orlando area and have worked with Bob on many transactions over the years.  At times we have had mutual clients.  Speaking for myself and for clients I know well whom Bob has represented, Bob is certainly one of the best real estate brokers in the state of Florida.  He has excellent experience in all types of real estate.  He knows the technical ins and outs of the business, he is honest and straightforward, and is great at dealing with people and bringing the parties and transaction together.  Unlike many brokers who sit back after a contract is signed and wait to collect a commission, Bob remains as active as necessary during the due diligence period and closing process to assist the parties get the information they need and complete the transaction to everyone's satisfaction.Bob has high moral character and integrity. He is well liked and respected in the brokerage and real estate communities , which is a big part of accessing opportunities and getting transactions completed."
