About the Author:
Robert de Heer was born in the Netherlands in 1923 and came to the United States in 1952. He became a REALTOR® in the early 1960s, when caveat emptor was good advice to home buyers and when printed real estate forms were non-existent.
He found there was a need for a portable reference book for real estate agents containing practical data. In 1968, Bob founded Professional Real Estate Publishing Co. and published the Realty Bluebook, which in later years reached annual sales in excess of 50,00 copies. The book has been updated annually and is now in its 33rd edition, published by Dearborn Real Estate Publishing®.
In the 1960s, the only forms available for preparing residential purchase agreements were given out free of charge by title insurance companies to real estate brokers. These skeletal forms were usually packaged in legal size pads of about 100 sheets. Brokers and agents filled in terms binding buyers and sellers and in doing so, most likely committed unauthorized practice of law. This was not considered a risk in those days, since “risk management” was a term that did not appear in the real estate lexicon until much later, when harmed buyers began filing law suits against sellers and brokers. Bob pioneered the development of printed forms providing appropriate terms that simply required filling in necessary data. In constant consultation with real estate counsel and experienced brokers, Professional Real Estate Publishing Co. developed and marketed an extremely comprehensive collection of sophisticated forms for the real estate profession.Back to Top
