Why real estate? Bob knows a home is one of the most important investments people buy and sell in their lifetime. He has incorporated his education, abilities, training and Marketing Degree to ensure a win/win transaction for every client he works with. Dedicated to business ethics, standards, and professionalism, Bob brings added VALUE to each transaction. Knowing how vitally important customer service is in the retail and hospitality industries, 100% customer satisfaction with a "one up mentality" has been one of Bob's strengths to his real estate clientele. In fact, over 85% of his real estate business comes from past clients, past client referrals and Realtor referrals. "CONSIDER IT DONE" is not just Bob's slogan. It's his standard, his value and his way of life.
Bob's hobbies and talents include golf (he's a lefty), collecting cars, boating, being at Lake Powell on his houseboat or at his cabin in Pine Valley enjoying the fresh mountain air, collecting books, but loves being "Papa Bob" to his three grandsons and a proud father of a son and daughter he and his wife adopted when they were 9 and 11 years of age. Bob is also an avid bass guitarist. He's played in a local classic rock band called "Middle Of The Road" which has played throughout the southern Utah areas AND, yes, Bob can say he's played Vegas!! Palace Station to be exact. His favorite rock group is RUSH and has followed them for 40+ years never missing a concert. Bob has other classic rock bands he loves and whenever they come in concert to Vegas, you can be sure Bob is in the crowd. He and his wife Becky were married in 1992 and continue to stay busy as grandparents, husband and wife and best friends. Their 4-legged child, Sara, is a border collie lab mix. Bob LOVES dogs but is devastated whenever he has to say goodbye to one. It takes him years to recover after they've passed away to play with other animals who have crossed "Rainbow Bridge".
