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.
Robert was awarded “Rookie of the Year” by the Birmingham Commercial Real Estate Council in 2013 and has received the million-dollar sales club distinction each year thereafter. In 2014 Robert completed his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. Shortly after in 2017, he received 2nd place for Top Producer Sales and Leasing by the Birmingham Realtors Council, where he continues to qualify as a life member. In 2017, he obtained his Broker’s license. In 2020, he was elected board member of the local NAIOP Chapter. In 2022, he was recognized as one of Birmingham’s Top 40 under 40.
