Whitelaw and Sons Real Estate Morgan Hill

Let Robert Be Your Trusted Advisor For The Best Price, Terms And A Faster Sale!

Robert Whitelaw Realtor BrokerDoing a great job is not just about checklists or creating an assembly line style service.

It’s about executing each and every task to the highest degree possible while taking into consideration your specific real estate needs and the needs of your home.

After identifying those specific needs, unique tasks are brought into the equation to maximize results. It is my ability to identify those unique needs and to get those items done better than everyone else that delivers my guaranteed market beating results.

As your professional real estate advisor, I reject the common, boiler plate approach and instead offer a unique strategy that has been customized to your needs. The effectiveness of my approach has proven itself time and again in both the luxury and mainstream home markets. Your real estate needs should not be treated like one size fits all – and with me, it never will.

I was born and raised right here in Silicon Valley. After graduating from Lynbrook High School in West San Jose, I attended and graduated from San Jose State University. I was also an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) for 6 years, working first for Bay Star Medical and then for AMR. I have always tended to be someone that wants to help others and when I began to entertain the idea of going to medical school, becoming an EMT seemed like a great first step. Life takes different turns and while I did not become a doctor, I very much value my experiences while helping people during the most difficult moments of their lives.

Even while I was an EMT, I continued to help my clients in San Jose, Morgan Hill, San Martin, Gilroy, Campbell, Cupertino, Santa Clara and many other communities in Santa Clara County. I love my local South Valley real estate community where I have achieved amazing results for my home sellers, buyers and investors – and I can achieve the same for you, no matter what part of Silicon Valley you call home.

I became a real estate agent in 1988 and after all this time, while most agents focus on quantity, I have focused on quality of service that never ignores the needs of each client. That philosophy has proven to get better results over and over again. I guarantee results where you get paid if I don’t deliver! That is what I do, and I am very good at it!

Marketing Plan

A Proven Marketing Plan - With A Difference

Every agent out there is going to tell you that they have a real estate marketing plan. In fact, most of them are identical. However, the marketing plan is the minimum competency you should expect from your trusted Real Estate Professional. The lowest rung on the ladder to success is starting with a plan, but what really makes a difference and turns a “plan” into a “break all records story of dominating success” is how well each item on that plan gets executed. We enhance that plan with modifications to specifically take advantage of the key features your home offers – so no cookie cutter approaches here. Then we make sure every item on that plan gets completed to the highest standard that others just can’t touch. That is where we shine and achieve amazing – and proven – results for our clients.

Guaranteed Results

Guaranteed Results!

I offer guarantees for my sellers and my buyers! Plenty of agents out there can talk a good game, but we are so confident in the results that we can achieve for our clients that we put our money where our mouth is and GUARANTEE RESULTS. We judge success based on the things that matter to you as a buyer or a seller. Did we sell your home faster than other agents? Did we get you your price? If we didn’t, we pay you! For our buyer clients out there we offer our “No Regrets” guarantee. Did you buy a home with us and within that first year realize the home is just not for you? Guess what, we will sell that home for you for free! Check with us on the details!


Professional Market Analysis

Our Buyer and Sellers benefit from our thorough Competitive Market Analysis (CMA). For our Sellers, it gives you the most precise and thought out look into your homes likely market value given the realities of todays market and what similar homes have sold for. For our Buyers, before making an offer on a home, we apply that same attention to our Pre-Offer Market Analysis. We do this so that you can get better insight into what the “Right Price” for the home is. It allows you to make an offer with all the available information. It is just one more way we deliver unbeatable results for our Buyers and Sellers.

Problem Solving

Proactive Problem Solving

The key to success in real estate is being ready for whatever comes our way. I am proud of my record of selling 100% of the homes I have listed. That success does not just rely on my marketing – which is exceptional – but on my ability to have creative solutions to problems before they even occur. I pride myself on always having a Plan B – just in case!

FAA Certified Drone Pilots

FAA Certified In House Real Estate Drone Photography And Videography

Drone video and photos for the marketing of your property can really draw attention from buyers. We were all in when this kind of marketing became available. However, what we did find was that we were not always getting exactly what we wanted or in some cases found that the weather or circumstances were not just right. So we decided to bring drone video filming in house so that we control where, when and how these important videos are shot. If we need to do re-shoots or just take one more shot at the perfect time, we can get that done in hours rather than days. Our post processing and editing is also top notch!


Market Knowledge

For any buyer or seller, having an agent who can correctly evaluate the current market is a critical key to success. It tells us what to expect when we are selling a home and calibrates us to what the right offer to make is. It even goes deeper than that. With the kind of market knowledge I have, I can spot trends and market segments that will benefit you the most. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, that market saavy will give you the advantage.

Leave Stress Behind

Stress Free Results

When a professional is at your side, issues tend to get dealt with before they ever fully materialize. I can bring that kind of peace of mind to your real estate experience. We do everything we can to walk you through every step of the process and communicating everything that will occur long before it actually happens. Also, with our decades of experience, we have become experts at being prepared for snags and bumps in the road – and having solutions to these problems before they even become problems!

Licensed Real Estate Broker and Realtor

Professional Real Estate Broker and Realtor

In addition to qualifying for my real estate agents license, I have invested in more study and more rigorous testing to become a real estate broker. According to the National Association Of Realtors, only 22% of Realtors hold a Brokers license. That means more knowledge at work for you.

Virtual Tours

Live Guided Virtual Home Showings!

Virtual tours have gone from being a useful marketing tool to an essential part of getting buyers access to a home. We have taken this to the next level by creating stunning virtual home tours that also allow a LIVE virtual Open House or showing that is guided by your agent to present the property to prospective buyers. This way, buyers can be shown the home in a way that makes sure their attention is brought to the features that make your home so attractive. This technology blends the virtual online meeting with the online tour in a seamless way that allows for the best virtual tour experience possible!


A Respected Professional Who Has Helped Thousands!

I was first licensed as a Real Estate Agent in 1988 during my Senior year at San Jose State University. I have enjoyed helping Buyers, Sellers and Investors reach their real estate goals ever since. As a local boy in Silicon Valley, I have worked in and know the markets from Mountain View to Los Gatos and Sunnyvale to Morgan Hill and Gilroy!

In 2007, I began sharing my insights on the world of real estate with thousands of listeners through my podcast, “Real Estate Realities With The RebelBroker“. Over the years, I have been interviewed by prominent publications such as The San Jose Mercury News, The Registry of San Francisco and television programs such as ABCs Nightline for my expertise and insights. What’s more, I have had the pleasure of being able to interview some amazingly talented people in the world of real estate from all parts of the United States. All of these unique experiences helping me grow my knowledge which I can then use to enhance my clients success!

Testimonials From Clients


After interviewing 5 real estate agents (Believe it or not, Robert actually SUGGESTED I do this!), my choice was clear. Robert has been doing this a long time and his expertise and insights are what come from years of watching the real estate market. He gave my transaction the kind of attention it needed to make sure it came off without a hitch and made sure my interests were protected all through the process. He made a very stressful situation nearly stress-free with his professionalism, his willingness to clearly explain each step of the process and a total dedication to what was in my best interests. I have actually worked with Robert in two transactions at this point. He helped me purchase my first home in 2011 and he is now helping me find my first investment property. You simply cannot do better than Robert if you need a real estate agent!

Bought And Sold With Robert!
format_quoteMade the experience seamless. Sold in less than a day...We moved out of the area, Robert handled everything. Robert had done his homework and presented comps for the area. Once we signed him, he started working on the listing, even though the listing would not happen for a month or so. Immediately our house was put on Facebook and on line "coming soon". Robert knew exactly who to call to get the home ready to sell. He handled all the services required in order to make the closure smooth.format_quote

format_quoteRobert did a superb job in marketing my home and in dealing with the variety of people and personalities that expressed interest in the house. He was able to buffer me from much of the nonsense that goes on when selling a home and at the same time he offered me sound advice about how to best respond to potential buyers. Robert was undeterred by a few bumps along the way. He was more concerned with my wishes than in making a quick sale and a quick dollar. I trust Robert 100% and feel he was not only my realtor, but also a friend. If honesty and integrity are important to you, I recommend you consider Robert as your realtor.format_quote

Susan And Andrew
Home Buyer
format_quoteRobert and his associate visited our home in a relaxed, yet very professional manner. At no time did they use “high pressure/get it sold” tactics. Rather, we discussed an effective marketing strategy, price point and timing of the process. Renee has been calm and assuring throughout the of selling our home and purchasing our beautiful new home in San Martin. Whenever an issue or question arose, she would promptly and calmly address them. We felt so assured throughout what could otherwise could have been a very stressful period. Our home sold in less than a week and above its list price! We got what we consider a good, fair price on our new home. We can recommend Robert and Renee without any reservations whatsoeverformat_quote

format_quoteRobert was exactly what I needed when it came time to buy my home. He blew me away with how much he knows about the markets and was always available when I had questions or needed to get a better handle on the process to buy my home. All of that paid off with the purchase of my home. There were multiple bids and Robert was able to to turn around an offer in just a couple of hours and get my offer accepted! With his guidance, I was able to not only get the home I wanted but to also protect my interests throughout the buying process. He also makes use of the latest tools and technology to give his clients the best support possible. He also provided contacts for loan officers and all the other bits and pieces to get inspections done quickly. He is exactly what you want in a realtor.format_quote
