Meet Rob!

 

I grew up and attended school in Vaughan, Ontario. I studied and practiced Fitness and Health Wellness at George Brown College after graduation at Holy Cross Catholic Academy High School in Woodbridge, Ontario. I spent most of my student years volunteering and working in recreational and family youth programs for the City of Vaughan. I have always been striving since my youth to be an involved, approachable and devoted citizen within our community. 
 
My customer service strengths are derived from my social foundation within the community, one-on-one clientele experience through my health and wellness practices, as well as an ambition to be a successful entrepreneur from a young age. After receiving my diploma for Fitness and Health Wellness from George Brown College, I began to set my sights on another passion working as a Stone Artisan for PVD Tile, designing custom natural stone and marble patterns inside creative, ambitious, and personalized construction/home renovation projects. The love realized in engaging with each unique project in different and constantly evolving areas within the GTA led me to begin pursuing a career in real estate. The rest is history!
 
I currently live in Vaughan and enjoy my free time among family and friends. I love to travel, explore, and shop. I am a big fan of soccer, and have been raised around the game growing up. I'm also a big Toronto Maple Leaf fan. My hobbies include playing sports, soccer and ball hockey, playing guitar, and mixing music. I continue to stay active with my fitness and taking care of my body. I love being an uncle for my nieces and nephew. I am always learning and working every day towards being a better son, brother, uncle, and friend.
 
I believe our professional success comes with hard work and dedication. I intend on implementing a bonafide plan specifically for your needs. This will help create a solid foundation that works as the building blocks needed to give you the best opportunity to find success in achieving your real estate dreams.
