Robert grew up in Southern California and developed a love for the beach and surfing at a young age. His summers were spent either traveling with his grandparents to Hawaii or living with them at their vacation beach rental houses. After graduating from high school Robert started college at USC and lived in Malibu so he could spend his free time surfing. His first real estate transaction was with his landlord who wanted to sell the property where Robert was living. Robert convinced his parents it would be a great investment and within 30 days, the transaction was complete. He graduated from USC, and spent the next 3 years in law school, still living at the same Malibu location. After completing law school, Robert got his real estate brokers license and started his investment portfolio. During the last 38 years, he has bought and sold many properties and thrives on the hunt and the renovation process.
