"...Thanks Bob! I've been completely impressed with your service from day one! I've bought and sold several homes in my life but I've got to tell you, no other REALTOR has worked as hard and been so successful at selling my property in as quick of time and for the price I was desiring as you! And the money you saved me was the icing on the cake!"

"I had previously had my home listed with two different large traditional brokerages. They both had conducted Open Houses and Broker Opens but with no results... after 9 months with them I decided to list with Valu-net Realty in order to make my home more competi-tively priced... within 28 days I had an accepted offer and saved over $3,400!

"...It made sense to try to tap the power of the internet , and possibly save 6% commissions from traditional real estate agents. As it turned out, a real estate agent did sell my home but I only had to pay 3%... I am very thankful we decided to use Valu-net Realty."

"I had a rental [home] in Bloomington that I had been putting off selling because I knew it needed a lot of work andI just didn't have the time to make all the phone calls to find the people to get the work done. When I finally decided to put the house on the market, I found Valu-Net Realty's site online and liked the fact that it was very inexpensive , yet offered everything a regular, full-priced realtor did. Bob, at Valu-net, knew who to call to get the many repairs done... He emailed or called at every step to check and get my approval, so I knew what was going on at all times. And the best part is he found a buyer with a good offer in a short period of time. I couldn't have sold my house so quickly without Bob's help. I told him several times how thankful I was for finding Valu-net."

"Bob [at Valu-net Realty] represented us in marketing and selling the house in Bloomington which we had purchased several years ago for our college age daughter. Living in Missouri, 330 miles away, I dreaded this task, but Bob eased our burden in many ways. We found him to be warm, friendly, caring and diligent in taking care of the many details which arose. I would highly recommend him to anyone who desires a broker who gives the personal attention and service you need."

"Bob, at Valu-net Realty, was able to sell our house TWICE in only 30 days! He found the first buyer on the first day our house went on the market. When that deal fell through he was able to find the second buyer just a few days later... AND he saved us THOUSANDS of dollars!"

Eric & Cindy W.

"I was delighted with how fast my mother's house sold in 2008 in such a down realty market. I listed with you on July 14 and closed the sale of the house on October 2, 2008. This was impressive and the money I saved compared to the standard realtor's fees was very significant.

Marketing with Valu-net Realty was simple, easy, fair and professional. Your guidance through the sales process took the worry out."

VALU-NET REALTY was no where on my radar until I stopped by the booth at the county fair. After the presentation by owner, Bob Double, I was convinced to use his agency to sell my property. I was in real estate sales several years ago and had planned to handle my own deal as I have on several occasions. Rather than list it FSBO for a month or so I decided to list with VALU-NET since the fee was so low. I had an offer $1500 under asking price and a full price back-up offer in 2 1/2 weeks. The first offer failed over financing and we were able to sell for full asking price. This incredibly quick deal was due to Bob's suggestion of a price reflecting true value and excellent presentation of the property. He knows how to sell houses!

I used his services to purchase another property. His SUPPLEMENTAL SALES DISCLOSURE was invaluable in pointing out some things about the property that we had no way of knowing otherwise. These findings were a part of our offer conditions. His negotiated reduction in co-broke percentage and his generous rebate saved us thousands of dollars in the purchase of another home. VALU-NET operates on a well-thought-out plan that is client friendly and easy to understand. The best deal in town! I recommend VALUE-NET REALTY very highly to any potential seller or buyer. Bob Double is a kind and patient man who is helpful beyond belief and gives the client space to think and decide. He is an expert in building structure and systems and understands how the real estate market works. No detail escapes him. He excels in follow-up and he kept us informed promptly You did a great job for us, Bob. Thank you!

Valu-net Realty not only saved us money in this difficult housing market but Bob was very profes-sional and informative in every aspect of selling our home. He took care of all the details and guided us with his expertise in real estate sales. We would recommend hiring Valu-net realty to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Rich & Karen Field

Valu-Net Realty was very profes-sional and supplied good advise in the sale of my home. I had listed my home with two traditional realty companies and was unable to sell my house. I listed my home with Valu-Net and reduced the asking price on my home by the difference that I would have to pay in broker's fees with the traditional realty companies. My home received several offers and sold in a short amount of time. Bob Double took care of all the closing requirements for me. At the time of closing, I was living in North Carolina and with Bob's help, I was able to close on my home in Indiana while working in North Carolina. I would definitely use Valu-Net Realty in the purchase or sale of my future homes.

Third time is a charm! After 2 Years and 2 realtors later, I decided to hire Bob and presto.......SOLD!!! In the tough market, I decided to lower the price of my home and used the savings from the realtors fees to offset the reduction. I learned that paying the high fees for a realtor would have been a waste when all you need is a listing in the MLS. In 2 years time, my previous two agents personally showed my home a grand total of ONE time! They basically did what Bob does... Listed my home so that countless numbers of other realtors and buyers have access to it . The difference is....Bob saved me thousands!

Mike Yohler

When we went to purchase a new home we tried several realtors before we chose Bob Double. Bob was very helpful in finding us listings that we felt like we could afford. He guided us to the Monroe County GIS website so we could look at property information such as aerial photos with the property lines overlayed. Bob showed us many houses and never rushed us to make an offer or pressured a sale in any way. He pointed out faults in the properties that we should consider before making an offer. Our latest purchase was not our first. Bob helped make the transaction pleasant and stress free. His rebate program on a share of his commission also made it possible for us to do a complete electrical rewire and several other improvements which helped make the home feel more like ours. My wife and I both are in agreement that we have never dealt with a more honest and ethical agent as Mr. Double and we will definitely will use him for any future real estate needs. Thanks Bob!!!

I had been trying, unsuccessfully, to sell my home as a “For Sale by Owner” property for 6 weeks prior to being introduced to Valu-net Realty. Working with Valu-net and using their flat fee listing service gave me the advertising power of the MLS system without paying the high commissions of traditional Realty. My home was on the market for less than a week before receiving a solid offer, and I saved thousands by choosing to set the commission at 2.5% vs. the traditional 7%. I would highly recommend Valu-net to anyone who is interested in selling their home and saving money at the same time.

J. Schwegman, Ph.D.

Although the initial appeal to Valu-net Realty was the significant cost savings, it has been our experience in working with Bob Double that has turned us into repeat customers. We have found Bob to have a high ethical standard in his profes-sional approach to his role as a Real Estate Broker. Bob is knowledge-able in all areas of real estate and consistently went the extra mile in working with us. We are currently using Bob a third time to sell our primary resi-dence, and have confidently referred family and friends to him.
