I loved dealing with Robert and his team. They were first class professionals; very diligent, organized and friendly. I was astounded at how well everything went and would highly recommend him.

Buying a multifamily was something I've always wanted to do, but there was always the fear of not knowing what to expect, the true costs behind the investment, and the many questions that may come after. Robert came and alleviated a lot those worries, and made buying my first home a very seamless experience! He was not only knowledgeable of the buying process, but he was very knowledgeable of the Providence area and its neighborhoods! If you're a first time buyer, he's happy to guide you and answer any questions you may have. Not only is Robert knowledgeable, but he's very attentive and considerate of what your needs are as a buyer! Me knowing so little about home maintenance, Robert was always up front as to whether a home was worth investing on based on its current condition. He not only helps to snag a home of your liking, but he will aim at acquiring a property that's going to be worth your while, whether it's your forever home, or an investment property. Even after my purchase, Robert has continued to offer assistance and remained available for any questions I had. Unlike some realtors who are solely after a commission check, Robert aims at providing top notch service to his clients, while working to build their overall buying/selling experience! He is definitely a realtor to recommend for those buying or selling in the Providence area! Same goes to his colleague, Ben, who's also been a support in this process. Thank you for everything, Robert!

Can I give Robert more than 5 stars? Because he deserves it. Robert is an amazing agent. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, warm and positive. He helped us purchase our new home and sell our old one with very aggressive time line and made the process as smooth as possible. If you work with Robert - and you should! - trust him. He dispenses excellent advice, has a wealth of knowledge and experience and has his client absolute best interest in mind. My husband and I are so fortunate to have connected with him.

"As first time homebuyers relocating from Boston to Providence, we could not have asked for a better realtor than Robert Rutley and his team at Mott and Chace. The professionalism and experience that the team at Mott and Chace brought to the process was beyond our expectations. From the very beginning, Robert listened to what we wanted and helped us find the properties and neighborhoods that got us truly excited about buying a home in Providence. Every time we entered a home Robert would go to work sizing up and scoping out all of the important details, both good and bad. Once we were ready to make an offer, Robert laid out a thoughtful strategy to ensure we could compete with the plethora of other offers already on the table. Once accepted, he connected us with a great team of service providers that got us from offer to close quickly and efficiently. Thanks to Robert and his team, we could not be happier with our new home and where we landed in terms of price and location!"

You would be hard pressed to find a kinder, friendlier, and more knowledgeable real estate agent than Robert. He has that rare ability to mix professionalism with humor, the latter which is surprisingly important during a real estate transaction. When it comes to Providence, he's as much historian and tour guide as Realtor. For recent transplants, particularly, that's super helpful. More than anything, I'm just taken by how much he truly and honestly cares. I think trusting your agent is probably the most important thing when deciding who to work with and I completely trust Robert.

Sam B - North Providence , RI: 2019-09-28

Full of wit, knowledge, and professionalism, Robert is excellent. He took the time to explain to me everything about the house buying process. He was always willing to give his expert opinion but was also great at listening to my preferences and ideas. His colleagues, the other agents and Robin who works as their brilliant client care coordinator and organizer, work in a cooperative fashion which means that they work seamlessly as a team to provide assistance at any time. If you're looking to buy a home in the Providence area, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Robert and his agency.

Robert Rutley, and Mott and Chace's stellar service prompted this newbie to write a first Yelp review. We worked with Robert a year ago to sell my husband's house and we gladly sought out his agency's services when it came time to list my home. He and his team advised on the preparation, the comparables, paperwork was done via file sharing and we were informed of each step in the process. Photos for the listing were taken on Tuesday, house listed on Thursday, under agreement by Saturday. Maybe the stars aligned just right or we just had a terrific and hard working realtor in our corner. I could not be more pleased. Thank you, Robert!

Mary Beth F - Cumberland, RI: 2019-02-18

Robert is an amazing, everyone needs a realtor like Robert. He was extremely patient, an expert in his field, reassuring and most of all supportive through-out the entire experience. I always felt taken care of each step of the way, from all his top referrals to walking me through the house I would finally buy. I would recommend Robert to anyone who is looking for a home. You will be in exceptionally good hands.

Christopher W - Providence , RI: 2019-02-12

We enjoyed working with Robert. He's a great guy! We found him to be honest, knowledgeable, super responsive to emails, genuinely interested in our best outcome, and an amazing resource for us (we were completely new to the area). He also recommended solid, equally responsive advisors. Working with him was a great choice and we would definitely recommend him to friends.

I decided to move to the Providence area despite being essentially unfamiliar with it. I bought a home with the help of Robert Rutley, and his team. It was a great experience. Robert worked with me before arriving to identify properties to look at. When I came to town for my house buying trip, Robert showed me properties along with a tour of surrounding areas. He was always responsive and helped me find the right house, without pressure. If I'm ever in the market again, I will certainly contact Robert Rutley first.

Ben J - N. Providence, RI: 2018-05-31

Robert assisted my in purchasing an investment mult-family and I was very pleased with his knowledge and ability to navigate the deal while keeping me informed. I would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction
