Bob is Senior Director of the Commercial/Industrial division for Industry One Realty Corp. As a Senior Director, it is his role to mentor new Industrial Agents who join Industry One Realty and groom them to be educated professionals and power Brokers in the Industry. Bob also assists other in house agents that may need help in closing current deals they are working on.
Bob tailored his business skills and marketing strategies by owning and operating a family wholesale plumbing and heating supply business for over 30 years on Long Island. Bob created a marketing plan that even his largest competitors tried to unsuccessfully duplicate. Being in that business for such a long time, Bob felt the time was right and decided to sell. He embarked on a few different ventures, I.E. Project Management in Manhattan and then decided on a career in Commercial Real Estate. In a short time, he realized this was the career path that was meant for him.
Bob has made deals that range from leases of 5,000sf industrial units to sales of Large Route 110 Office Buildings. His work ethic, personality and knowledge of the industry have created a great atmosphere between himself, his coworkers, customers and property owners /landlords. Even with his competition in the brokerage community!!
Bob credits his success in many ways. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Colleen, since 1979. They have raised two children Jacquelyn and Rob (Retired NCO for the USMC and recently married to Staci a US Naval officer). Bob and Colleen enjoy going out to dinner in their hometown of Huntington and can be seen on numerous golf courses throughout Long Island. Bob feels thinking on your feet, knowing the inventory, dealing with each situation that presents itself in each deal with a smile on his face, and being used to working countless hours is a method for success in the brokerage business.
He currently is a member of CIBS (the Commercial, Industrial, Brokers Society). Bob is on the Advisory/ Board of Directors for the Long Island Chapter of Best Buddies. He has also been golf chairman for DDI Institute and the Town of Babylon 9/11 Hometown Memorial golf outings.
"I want to thank both Lisa and Bob for all of their help finding us the perfect warehouse for our Long Island Tent operation. Everything from inception to completion was at a high professional level. As a matter of fact, I was going to use my previous realtors to find our new warehouse but they couldn't find the right fit and eventually told me that there was nothing out there that would suit our needs. Lisa was extremely persistent as she periodically knocked on our door and was confident that she could get it done for us. Well, I finally gave her a shot and it was the best thing I ever did! Bob and Lisa took me out on many outings to look at various options. They would always point out the positives and drawbacks of each warehouse without being pushy, as they understood it was a huge decision. Eventually we found an incredible opportunity but it had some issues. The negotiations along with resolving the issues took some time yet Bob and Lisa remained patient and resilient. I can honestly say this warehouse has been a game changer for us. We really got the deal of the century. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they also found us tenants in short order for a portion of the building. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking to make a big commercial real estate investment to use this fabulous team at Industry one. I can't thank them enough."
