Bob’s success story began in 1986, when he first earned his real estate license in the North Texas suburbs and quickly became a top producer for Coldwell Banker. He expanded his knowledge of the industry by joining a real estate investment company, and as Director of Marketing and Finance and licensed Loan Officer, he gained an even deeper understanding of every step of the home buying experience.
Bob relocated to Florida and earned his Broker Associate license. He holds many designations, including ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative), Seniors Real Estate Specialist, e-PRO Internet Specialist, IRES International Real Estate Specialist, CDPE Certified Distressed Property Expert and SFR Short sale & Foreclosure Resource.
His dedication to the industry and his clients enabled Bob to quickly become Number One in Real Estate sales and listings in Rotonda West, and to hold that position since 2008.
He was also inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and is a member of the RE/MAX Platinum club, an accomplishment that less than 4% of RE/MAX Realtors ® receive worldwide!
Bob is married to Ruth, a Brit, giving him a special interest and insight into the European Real Estate market, and has two grown children, a granddaughter, and their rescue baby.
Bob’s primary focus with Stiver Firth International is ensuring that our listed properties get maximum marketing exposure nationally and internationally so they sell quickly at the best price. This enables us to remain Number 1 in Rotonda AND Englewood!
