Robert is a Florida boy with Midwestern values. He was born in Chicago but grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida in the sleepy little beach town of Venice. After attending the University of Florida, with a major in advertising, he made the adventure of a lifetime by moving to New York City to start his career. While working at some of the world's top agencies (McCann-Erickson and Ogilvy & Mather) he managed major accounts such as Sony Pictures and American Express. Through working with the industry's most strategic and trusted minds, Robert gained insight on the ins and outs of marketing and what it takes to be successful in communicating a message and achieving desired results.
After several years in NYC, a sales job with PEOPLE magazine/website took him back to his roots in Chicago. Shifting gears to sales taught him what it takes to be successful in a competitive environment and closing business. While working on the magazine, he also spent a great deal of time building up their digital presence with their website. He learned in detail how to sell his clients' products online with search engine optimization, key word searches, lead gen, digital marketing, and social media.
Robert loves to travel but spent most of his vacation time visiting friends and family in Florida. Warm weather, sunny skies and being closer to family finally lured him back to Florida as a full time resident. He lives in Wilton Manors with his adorable chiweenie (chihuahua/wiener dog) rescue and loves everything the Fort Lauderdale area has to offer. Buying his first home stirred a passion for real estate and gave him a new direction. He fell in love with the exciting process and loves helping people find their own dream home or sell their place.
