"Rob has been great to us... both in buying our new (c1870) house and selling our old (c1901) house. First the selling... He helped us set up some great searches that pointed us to a number of houses. On her own, my wife was searching too and found a couple of likely suspects. Rob got right on it, and would tell us "what's what" about the places...usually within the hour! When my wife found what eventually has become our new home Rob sprang into action and set the wheels of purchasing in motion. I've been through that before, and it can be very, very, very painful. This wasn't. From start to finish paperwork showed up on time, we were pointed to the right people to help us with financing, and when the time came for closing it just took a half hour. Indeed, as easy as falling off a log! After that, it was time to sell our old house. It's a lot easier to BUY a house that costs under $200,000 than to SELL one that costs more than twice as much! Rob worked with us, setting up open houses and marketing the place. It took a while, but it SOLD! All through the process Rob was a pleasure to work with. Recommended? You bet!"
Rob has always been connected to real estate, even before becoming an agent. His dream growing up was to buy his own home, one he accomplished when he was just 19. Then he started buying and flipping homes across the Twin Cities.
After 15 years working in the furniture business, he decided it was time for a change. He loved his job but wanted the challenge of being his own boss. Real estate brought all of his passions together and in 2014, he took the dive and became an agent.
The idea for VIBE Realty came out the way any good idea comes out -- in a hammock at a friend’s lake cabin contemplating life at 3am. Rob had recently completed Leadership Saint Paul through the city’s Chamber of Commerce and it was the energizer that pushed him to dream about starting his own agency. He wasted no time getting started, calling his brother Steve on the drive home to get him on-board.
Starting VIBE Realty has been a dream project for Rob. It has given him the freedom to be authentic, to not compromise and it gives him a much-needed creative outlet. He also knows how incredibly special it is to be building this future with his brother.
Rob lives in Cathedral Hill -- he loves the history and charm of the neighborhood and can frequently be found enjoying all that Saint Paul has to offer (hint: great bars and restaurants). He loves traveling, especially to places with mountains, and has been known to bring down the house singing karaoke (no videos please).
