Bob purchased his first commercial and residential investment properties in Grosse Pointe in 1970, and as a landlord he has had a real hands-on education ever since. He recently represented Fifth Third Bank and Flagstar Bank in locating several new branches to the Grosse Pointe area. So whether purchasing, leasing, remodeling, or handling difficult confidential multi-million dollar negotiations - that is where his experience in dealing with contractors, ability to listen, sense of humor, and attention to detail work well.
He loves renovating homes, condos and commercial buildings and says, "It is very satisfying to take a non-functional home with a closed in floor plan, then by removing walls, combining rooms, etc. create a beautiful open home with a great flow!" He offers this hands on experience when listening to his client's lifestyle needs to help locate their ideal home.
Bob has had a diverse background from GM test driver, to owning and operation a national franchise for 21 years. Then he opened his own art gallery in Grosse Pointe and became very interested in sculpture leading to many instructional classes on the art. Bob and his wife traveled extensively for his art gallery. Together they visited over 1,000 galleries per year looking for new art and artists. Actually, tracking down an artwork for a real estate broker got him started in the real estate business.
A firm believer in "giving back" Bob is involved with many deserving charities. He recently started a free phone card program for our hospitalized amputee soldiers returning from Iraq. He is an avid tennis player, swimmer, biker, and attempts to play golf. A genuine car enthusiast he is currently restoring an old Corvette. Also an actor, Bob has done local and national TV commercials where he received Screen Actors Guild and Golden Mike Awards for his work, and he has appeared in more than 250 industrial firms.
Bob's motto has always been, "Treat people the way you want to be treated". He believes in personal integrity, dependability, and professionalism, and he takes pride in finding the right solution for his clients real estate needs.
