Cutler Real Estate asked Robbie a few questions so you can get to know him better, and here are Robbie's replies.
1. What is your professional/educational background?
I graduated from Salem High School in Virginia Beach, VA. For the last 15 years, I've held a career as an ASE certified auto technician which has treated me very well. In that time frame, I have worked on various makes and models and became Nissan Master SCOPE Certified by attending and completing Nissan of North America's technical training program. While continuing my career as a auto technician, I attended Hondros College of Business to complete the necessary courses to sit for and pass the national and state exams. Now I am working as a master technician for Cascade Audi in Cuyahoga Falls and an active Real Estate agent with a goal to be a local top producing agent with Cutler Real Estate.
2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?
A career as a technician is in a way very secluded from customer interaction. I am a very social person and have always enjoyed being able to help, advise, and communicate with my friends and clients. At this point in my life, changing my career in a new trade can be very difficult and financially unstable, and a career where I can determine the level of my success on my own time is far more appealing. My true passions are Cars and Homes, so why not do both! I enjoy the thought of being a go to source within my community, to my friends, family, and clients, and pursuing a career in Real Estate will help me do just that.
3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?
I currently live in Stow, OH and I love it. The area in my opinion is prefect. Ever since I moved here in 2013 from Winter Haven, FL, the thing that has continued to uphold my opinion has been the people. Everyone has been so nice and down to earth in this area. Northeast Ohio in itself has been an excellent fit for my family and me. Being close to family and the excellent school systems were our deciding factor when we were planning our family. So, I think it is safe to say that this will be my forever home!
4. How do you spend your free time?
My free time heavily includes my family. My wife Jen and daughter Gabriella, are a blast to experience life with. Now we have a little boy (Joseph) on the way and I am excited to experience all the joys he will give us. But, if you want to know my hobbies, then I enjoy building and restoring my cars, renovating my home and learning something new, whatever it may be. I actually used my skills and hobbies to build careers out of, which is how I became a "Real Estate Master Tech" Lol!
5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?
1. My Family
2. My Tools
3. My 1971 Pontiac Ventura
4. My Pap-Pap's pocket knife
5. My warm and cozy home
6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?
