For years Robert has been a top transactional broker, but increasingly he is dedicating more time to leading and managing the IVP team. In his spare time, Robert enjoys putting together investment partnerships and to date has put together more than a dozen.

Robert was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, and is a fourth-generation commercial real estate broker in the Birmingham area. Robert specializes in closing deals in Birmingham’s urban core as well as industrial sales throughout the state of Alabama.


Robert received both a Finance and Entrepreneurship degree from Auburn University.

Success Stories

“I've known Robert Crook on both a personal and professional basis for over 5 years. Robert is a man that I respect. He is a hardworking man of character. He raises the bar for others in his profession. I would trust Robert to handle any real estate transaction on my behalf. When Robert lists our properties for sale or lease, I stop worrying and move on to other tasks, because he will work on the listing like a brother would.”

– Price Hightower | CCIM, President of Tower Homes 
“Our building had been listed off and on for about five years, with little traffic, and next to no meaningful offers, when we met Robert Crook in the Fall 2017. Within weeks of retaining him, we had more traffic through the building than in the prior years combined, had a meaningful offer and were under contract within ninety days. Robert is the consummate professional but, of greater significance in our estimation, he is passionate about both his craft and our City. These characteristics meld together resulting in an energetic, responsive and effective professional who yields outstanding results for his clients. He has our unequivocal recommendation.”
