Bob Tunkel

    Caroline (my wife of 48 years) and I moved permanently from Georgia to our Amelia Island Home in 2000 which had been our weekend retreat for several years. We loved the island and Nassau County upon first sight in the early 1980's.

    Utilizing my experience as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force, manager of a large chain restaurant, and supervisor of eight multi-million dollar businesses, I can better serve my clients because of my extensive background in human relations management. Using computer skills honed over my entire business career I am helping my customers find the home or properties of their dreams. Here are a couple of comments from former clients:

    "Thank you for helping my wife and I find our dream home on Amelia Island. We were looking for an honest, no pressure, patient real estate agent and that's exactly what we found with you. The three things you did to help ensure our success in finding the right home for a great price are:
    1. You canvassed the island with us so that when it was time to buy we knew all of our options and were confident in our decision.
    2. You worked with the selling agent to make sure that a fair price was negotiated. And, you made sure to refer trust worthy, affordable services for home inspection, home repair assessment and flood insurance.
    3. You never expressed frustration with us despite the fact that we changed our buying criteria several times. I especially appreciate your candor toward the end of the sale process. You pointed out home issues that other agents would have ignored. You put your customer's needs ahead of your need to close the sale.
    I will recommend your services to anyone that's looking to buy in Amelia Island.

    Thank You!"

    "Bob was very patient and worked diligently and tirelessly to ensure we accomplished the goals and timeliness we had set. I would highly recommend your agency, Bob in particular, to friends, family and/or business associates."

    "You worked with us from home search to closing and your service (prompt, dependable, thorough, and well-researched) exceeded our expectations. You helped us find a lovely home, and the made the entire process smooth and efficient. You also provided many unexpected delightful extras that made our experience enjoyable and rewarding. Thank you for your friendly and expert service; you did an excellent job!!"
