When my wife and I decided to put our home in Shadow Lake in Papillion on the market we chose Robert Lanphier as our agent. He hosted several open house events for us. We were pleased with his persistence and professionalism. He was always available to answer our questions and address any concerns we might have. From the initial listing to closing we were satisfied with his performance.

As you know, about ten years ago, I first contacted your firm, because I needed a mid-size agency with a good reputation to help us to find a new location for our expanding daycare center business. The company connected the call to you. You assessed our current and the future needs of our business and found the perfect site for our center. Then you helped me to negotiate a great lease with a purchase option that put us on the path to ownership. Seven years later, you helped us to find a new buyer for the building and to negotiate the sale that netted us over $400,000. Instead of being just our agent, you have been our business partner. Thank for all your help. It was my good fortune to contact P. J. Morgan and to befriend you.

Throughout the years I have had the pleasure of working with Bob on multiple real estate acquisitions. Being a first time home buyer can be very nerve-racking, but Bob made the process so simple. He went out of his way to make everything as smooth as possible for me. Bob does not abandon his clients after the sales are finalized. I sought his advice anytime I was in need of guidance. His mission is always what is best for his clients.

My wife and I would highly recommend Robert Lanphier as your next real estate agent. His knowledge of all of the nuances in buying and selling a home is unsurpassed.  Even though we had unique circumstances in selling our home, he was able to help us obtain up-front financing and take care of other details that made the purchase of our new home completely painless.  In fact, because of his homework, we were able to find our new home and make an offer on the same day!  This was extremely important to us since we were moving from DC and had a very short time frame to find a new home.  His positive attitude throughout the process was another huge plus.  If you want the best realtor in Omaha, look no further than Robert Lanphier.
