Robert retired 5 years ago from a career of Retail Management and Customer Service Management. Prior to that, he served our country during a time of war as a member of the US Navy. He was honorably discharged and went on to earned his BA degree in Business Management using the GI Bill.
Before embarking on a new career in this chapter of his life, two requirements had to be met by the career choice:
1) It must involve helping people.
2) It must involve photography.
To become a Real Estate Agent was an easy choice for him to make. He was already an advanced Photography buff and he occasionally accepted Real Estate Listing shoots and Portrait assignment requests.
Robert became a Real Estate Agent in August, 2014. He began this journey with a great sense of excitement and anticipation. He discovered that the two core principals which guide him in all interactions with customers/clients and everyone else on a daily basis would be invaluable. The 2 Core Principals are:
1) His parents taught him a valuable lesson which he considers a great gift- the belief that " You Should Always Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them To Do Unto You" (Matthew 7:12). This Golden Rule is Robert’s 1st Core Principal.
2) During his many years of Customer Service Management, he was taught and taught others that the customer should always come first. He believes to his core that his client’s best interest is always the most important aspect of every transaction. Therefore, Robert’s 2nd Core Principal -the belief that serving the client’s best interest is more important than any aspect related to the transaction. This principal must be adhered to even if it means not moving forward with the sale.
Robert lives in Suffolk, Virginia with his wife who was his high school sweetheart. He loves photography and when he is not helping clients to sell or buy homes this is probably what he is doing. He has many testimonials written by clients attesting to the fact that he lives by the two core principals listed above. His aim is to provide the highest level of service to his clients and he takes deep pride in helping them achieve their real estate goals. All of Robert’s clients receive professional photos when they list their home with him to sell.
