Rob Calaby
Director/ Property Sales / Auctioneer

Rob Calaby has been living and working in the Mid North of South Australia for 34 years which almost makes him a local. His time in the Industry dates back to 1987 as a junior in a stock firm sweeping floors and dealing with customers in Balaklava. It was in those early days where his strong work ethic, exceptional customer service and passion to deliver on his promises began.

In the years following this, Rob has held corporate management positions, founded and managed highly successful business’s and above all developed strong friendships and business contacts throughout his appointments across the country.

Rob founded Ruralco Property/Calaby Real Estate in Clare back in 2010. Early in 2020 the business re-branded dropping off Ruralco Property and launched Calaby Real Estate as a standalone brand. The business has grown year in year out and is continually working to deliver above our clients expectations.

Striving to be the best at whatever he does, keeps him on top of his game and drives him to deliver on his promises to every client he works with whether its selling a small house block in the town or the family farm, they are all as equally important as each other and delivering on his commitment is what Rob is all about.

Rob and his family have been living in the Clare Valley for the past 19 years. His family is heavily involved within the community and love living in this magnificent part of the State.
Rob is very proud of the team he has put together at Calaby Real Estate and would love to help you achieve the best possible outcome when the time comes to sell your property.

Rob was a great help when purchasing my new property. His communication and guidance in going through the required documents was very helpful. The whole process was dealt with a great level of professionalism from Rob and he was very approachable.
Just wanted to let you know how amazing it has been to have you to sell my Mothers home in Burra. We had another agent from Clare before you for 6 months and he declined to auction the house. Changing to you was the best, all the family were completely satisfied with you and all your staff. Your honesty, patience, ability to listen, reliability and professionalism was outstanding. We would recommend your company to everyone

Quick, affable and co-operative Rob was recommended to me by someone as an agent who goes out of his way to help people who are finding things a bit difficult to accomplish in a house sale. Our experience would support that. He knows the local market well and inspires trust because he doesn't oversell or over-promise. He made everything very easy in our house purchase.

Very Happy Rob sold two properties for me and managed a clearing sale. All went very well and his valuations of the properties was spot on. He went out of his way numerous times. Very happy all round.
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.

Rob's enthusiastic and pleasant manner helped persuade the buyer that my property was a good investment, which it was! I have no hesitation in recommending Calaby Real Estate to my friends and residents of Clare.
Rob was always available to answer our questions, he was great in helping us to sell our home and to purchase another one, all in a short turn around. Very professional and would recommend him without hesitation.
