"We cannot say enough about our experience with Bob Rizza. As first time homebuyers we really wanted someome who knew the market and someone whom we could trust. Bob exceeded our expectations!! He took the time to find out exactly what we were looking for and assured us we would find it. He was in constant communication with us at all times to make sure we were all on the same page. No matter what time of day it was Bob was always available to answer any questions we had. If he didn't know the answer he found out and got back to us in an extremely timely manner. His positive outlook and determination to find us what we wanted was encouraging. He found us the perfect home in no time! He was very organized and persistant and as a result made the closing smooth and quick. We hands down would recommend Bob to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thanks Bob for all of your hard work, dedication, guidance and most importantly your expertise." ~ Peter and Teresa DiTuri
"I have had the pleasure of working with Bob since 1998. He is a true business professional, always exhibiting a high degree of honesty, integrity and knowledge. Bob is an expert in his field and an all around really nice person to know and work with." ~ Steve Piraino
"We can't say enough about the positive experience we had working with Bob to sell our home as well as searching for a new one. From the time we signed our contract with Century 21 until closing he was always there for us. He displayed great patience and understanding when we weren't sure if we wanted to go on. Helping us to understand the process and taking the time to guide us through it with utmost patience really made a big difference. He answered all our questions and concerns and at the same time built a trust that conveyed to us that our concerns were a priority. He was with us through the whole process and we are still calling on him with questions and asking for his advice. Highly recommended! 5 Stars!!!"

"A few years ago, we engaged Bob to help us sell our industrial building. He did so within a couple of months. We were very impressed with his determination and professional attitude. His drive and motivation were above the norm. Since then he has helped us sell our home, helped close an intricate and challenging deal on my sisters home, and successfully sold my brother-in-law's home. He also found my brother-in-law a GREAT new home at a fantastic price. Even a down economy did not dampen his enthusiasm and optimistic attitude. He simply gives his all to every customer. Keep up the great work Bob!"

"I have known Robert (Bob) Rizza since 1993 first in a professional setting and then as a close friend. Bob has helped, me, my family, and several of my clients and friends with real estate transactions and related counsel. There has not been one circumstance where the folks he was helping was dissatisfied.
"I have always known Bob to have the highest integrity and even when his opinion wasn't the most favored, his counsel and the resulting direction was always the most appropriate.
"I hope you have an opportunity to work with Bob in a professional manner and I also hope you have the opportunity to call him your friend. You won't be disappointed."

"I had never used a realtor to sell a home. I have sold 5 homes in my life all by owner. We tried to sell by owner our Roselle home for almost a year. After dealing with people who were not qualified to purchase our home and having showings and open houses and not selling - we decided it was time to get serious. When we first listed by owner I received many letters and contacts from Realtors. Throughout the time of being for sale by owner Bob was the consistent one – checking in from time to time, he never over-did his follow up, provided helpful hints and listened when I said call me in 2 months etc…. I knew he was the best choice since he listened to me and his follow thru was stellar I knew he would do the same for our potential home buyers. So we chose Bob Rizza as our Realtor.
It was a long process in selling due to economy and supply of repossessed homes in the area available at lower costs. But Bob was resilient and helped keep the prospects coming thru. He was also respectful when we had a family medical issue making our home unavailable for showings for a while – yet still keeping interested parties interested when we could open our home back up for showings. He was caring to our needs and understanding that our family came first and not pushing us in any way.
When we sold our home, we had a specific area we wanted to move to but there was limited supply of homes there. Bob was patient in taking time to find options and show them to us even though they were at least a half hour from the Roselle Area. He was helpful in keeping us from just buying a "it will do" home and encouraged us to wait for the "Right" Home for us. The "Right" home became available and we went to see it the 1st day it was able to be shown – We purchased it that night and even though our home we sold was closing in 3 weeks – we were able to close on both homes the same day. We were not homeless for any period of time. This was not an easy task and required a lot of extra work and follow through on Bob's part. He was the one who kept on the mortgage pieces, legal aspects and other realtors for both the sale and purchase.
We are now in our New Home and So Happy! We love it here and are thankful to Bob Rizza and Century 21 Lullo team for making the stressed times easier!!"
