My wife and I completed the purchase of our new Cape home in Harwichport just this past May.
We found the perfect match and the fulfillment of a dream we've shared for many years. Throughout a long and involved search, Bob Churchill was our guide, our partner and a good friend. Bob's patience and professionalism, as well as his deep knowledge of the Cape real estate market and its cycles, proved to be critical in so many ways. Bob was always available, always helpful and again I stress, patient.
We couldn't be happier with the results of our searching, and we are very grateful to Bob for his tireless efforts on our behalf.
Thank you Bob!

After vacationing on the Cape for years we'd developed a list of preferences were we ever to shop for a place of our own. We decided it was time and contacted Bob Churchill, pretty much out of the blue. Talk about responsive: we contacted Bob on Christmas Eve (of all days!) and he scheduled an appointment with us immediately after Christmas. It was clear from the outset we'd made the right choice. We found Bob to be highly experienced, with extensive knowledge of the area. We also found him to be patient, straightforward, honest, and unafraid to gently interject reality checks where needed. Most of all, Bob had no agenda but ours. He guided us, but never steered us: the mark of a true professional. Once we'd settled on a house, we braced ourselves for the onslaught of the many interrelated details that come with buying real estate. Bob continuously attended to the process. We never had to call him to learn what was happening he kept in touch with us constantly. The entire transaction went smoothly, and with Bob we slept peacefully. He stayed involved even after the closing, chasing down any remaining issues, and even keeping an eye on the house when we're away. We've worked with many realtors, and Bob is simply exceptional. A gentleman and a pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Bob Churchill is your best friend on the Cape when you are buying real estate. Period. His knowledge, patience, and professionalism all add up to a level of integrity that his clients appreciate and his fellow agents admire. Bob understands your particular situation and follows his clients’ wishes to achieve their dreams of owning property on Cape Cod – no matter how long that process takes.
As good as Bob is at his craft and as well respected as he is in the industry, he is even a better person. He is sincere in understanding his clients’ needs and their personal situation. His genuine patience is unmatched – I believe we have to be his longest dawdling client having worked with but not buying anything with him for over 15 years!
He truly has his clients’ best interests at heart and he follows that path with a passion. If you are looking for real estate on the Cape – anywhere on the Cape – Bob is by far and away your best resource. Bob will patiently work with those who haven’t found what they are looking for or the timing isn’t right and will loyally fight for those who find a home they love.
I'm a picky perfectionist, no way around it. It took me four years of searching to find my perfect Cape Cod home and I couldn't have done it without Bob and his endless patience, persistence and expert counsel. I had many false starts in my search, including several properties that came very close to contract. Yet each time I got close to making a commitment, I would back away due to one concern or another. Bob was with me every step of the way - never losing faith in the fact that we'd "one day" find the place that was just right. He worked with me to look at many different towns on the Cape, each time offering lots of information and background so that I could be well informed of the area. He sent me a regular stream of updates on open properties, often calling particular ones out that seemed to match my criteria. One, in particular, he came back to several times - urging me to give it a look even though I didn't think much of the photos online. It turns out Bob knew me better than myself because the one home he was certain for me was, indeed, the one! When it was right, it was right...I walked in and it was "game over, I'm done looking". I can't imagine another agent sticking with me through the process for that length of time, but Bob never faltered. I had him over to the house recently and we both laughed at how things worked out. As we sat on the deck basking in the sun and ocean-front breeze, I thanked him again for being an awesome agent and, now, a good friend.
We recently purchased a lovely home in Yarmouthport with the help of Bob Churchill of Buyer Brokers of Cape Cod. We decided in mid August to leave the Los Angeles area and relocate to the Cape. Thanks to Bob’s constant shepherding of the process, we had sold our home there and were in our new home during the first week of November—something we would not have accomplished without his continuous attention to our needs and the details of the purchase. We began our search for a home on the Cape with a suggestion by a highly respected realtor and acquaintance on the outer Cape that we would be well-served by Bob Churchill. We learned quickly that working with a person who has the respect of other realtors, town officials, and trades people goes a long way toward finding and acquiring the home one wants. Bob accommodated our house search from across the country; he made space in his schedule for our two quick week-end house-hunting trips, and then he remained in touch on a daily basis by phone and email. He handled paperwork and communications between us and lenders, attorneys, inspectors, and others without a flaw. When we came upon problems with the house we chose, Bob insured that the town officials, engineers, and others required to resolve the problem did so quickly. He even provided good moral support through the twists and turns of the sale of our house in California, and when that sale suddenly went through sooner than we had anticipated, he was able to facilitate the various processes of our purchase in Yarmouthport to accommodate our time frame. Bob’s work didn’t end with the completion of the purchase; he has continued to provide us with support, information, and guidance as we settle into our new home and community.

We just wanted to thank you once again for the excellent job you did guiding us through the process in purchasing our Cape Cod summer home.
As you are aware, Michelle and I have real estate licenses in Florida. However, I can honestly say that I have never met a more professional Broker than you. Your diligence, attention to detail and your always open and continuing communication, whether by phone or email, is phenomenal. If we had questions, and you didn’t have the answers, you always made sure the answers were found. You are a Broker that cares about your client, not just the commission check.
Often, in Real Estate transactions, one encounters turbulence, unknowns and some unforeseen obstacles. Buying property in a state other than one’s home state can be even more trying. Bob, you made it work. Your friendliness, knowledge and caring attitude not only made it work, it made working with you, a pleasure. Thank you once again for an “OUTSTANDING” job well done.

..I am in my new home in Harwichport and loving every minute of it. I have Bob Churchill of Buyer Brokers of Cape Cod to thank for that. Bob spent hours with me and on the sidelines gathering and sharing information to make sure I was an informed buyer. He listened to my needs and researched the towns and house styles that I spoke of, but went beyond so that I would have choices and comparisons. Bob wanted to make sure I understood "Value" when I saw it and I have to say it truly happened. Bob was not at all in a rush or pushy or uninterested, quite the opposite. He was patient and focused on finding me the house and the experience that would best fit my personality and lifestyle going forward. Using a buyer's broker was one of the best decisions I made in this whole process as it allowed me peace of mind knowing that my broker was working only to find me my dream home. Everywhere we went other brokers spoke directly to me of Bob's positive history in the business, his integrity and his easy to be around demeanor which just continued to solidify my level of comfort.
The real estate market can be hard to navigate in these uncertain times, but with Bob Churchill in my corner I was able to find a happy ending.
Bob represented us and helped us find our current home on Cape Cod. He is a true leader in his field and his company embodies what a true Buyer Agency stands for: utterly rejecting the conflicts of interest that are unfortunately the norm in today’s real estate market.
In addition to holding himself to the highest professional ethics and standards of practice in real estate buyer agency, Bob is genuinely passionate about protecting the interests of his clients. He is always looking for ways to better serve his clients. Beyond having an encyclopedic knowledge of the individual homes on Cape Cod, Bob has another quality that I think is important for any buyer who's spending many weekends driving around with an agent: he makes the process fun!
If you are looking for a home on Cape Cod, Bob is definitely the one and only person I would call.

When we saw an antique home listed in our favorite spot on the Cape, we decided to contact Bob Churchill rather than the listing realtor. Great decision! Although we originally took this step for “strategic” reasons – after buying and selling a number of homes, we knew we wanted an agent who would represent our interests alone, with no fiduciary responsibility to the sellers – we were then delighted to discover what a true professional we had found. And a perfect gentleman too! Bob’s knowledge and experience were apparent at every step of the process, as was the respect in which he was held by the sellers’ realtors, Yarmouth officials and our attorney. His services went way beyond merely representing our interests – helping us, for example, to review the plan for the new septic system the owners were required to install, and to understand what restrictions we might face because of the house’s proximity to wetland. Even after the closing he has continued to help us, keeping an eye on the house when we were away, and providing recommendations for reliable contractors.
All in all, we cannot recommend him highly enough!
