Professional & Personable He has a great experience buying our home with Rob Calaby. Rob has great local knowledge, a friendly welcoming nature, and was understanding of our financial limitations. We never felt undue pressure, yet it was clear he was representing his clients well. He had good quality homes to show us which was important as we only had one day in SA to find a home. Since we have settled and moved in, Rob and his team have been friendly and helpful as we got to know the town. Rob was right, we are very happy living in the home, the area and the town. We can't imagine living anywhere else right now but if that time came we would definitely use Rob to sell our home. Clare is blessed with many great people and businesses and Rob Calaby and his team are great examples of that.
