In May of 2012 Bob celebrated his 26th anniversary as a Realtor in Provincetown. He first obtained his broker’s license at the tender age of 18. During college he rented apartments in the Back Bay and South End of Boston and transitioned into sales after graduation. In 1985 he moved to Provincetown, joined Beachfront Realty and in 1991 became the broker/owner.
In that time he has also dedicated hours in volunteer service to the Town of Provincetown, having served as the Chairman of the Planning Board, Parking Needs Study Committee and Local Comprehensive Planning committee.
Bob’s breadth of experience in the local market combined with in-depth knowledge of zoning and myriad other local regulatory controls have led to a specialty in turning around distressed properties. His seller client base includes many developers, lawyers and even other Realtors. His recent continuing education included completing the course requirements for the SRS designation and specialty training in representing Sellers.
In 2005, Massachusetts passed landmark reforms in real estate practice and consumer protection. Bob has completed a core curriculum on Buyer agency and a comprehensive training program on Buyer representation. As recently quoted, “With a Buyer agency contract I’m able to put all my skills and experience to work for my Buyer-clients like never before.”
