Real Estate Experience
Rob was licensed in April of 2017. He initially became licensed because he was interested in real estate investing. However, he quickly realized that he really enjoyed helping others with their real estate goals. About half of his clients are investors with the other half being retail buyers and sellers.
Rob was featured on HGTV’s House Hunters, and has been awarded Best of Zillow by independent surveys. Rob has combined his love of technology with real estate to leverage digital marketing platforms like Facebook.
He is part of the Vanguard Realty Alliance based out of West Chester, PA. It is a boutique brokerage with approximately 70 of the agents. Many of the agents are real estate investor focused which leads to many off-market opportunities for Rob’s clients. Rob often attends local real estate meetups and is well networked with real estate investors in the area.
Rob has owned a property in NJ that he has rented out, and is currently doing a live-in flip on his own house. You can check out the video of the flip here!

After approximately 5 years at GEA, he joined Glatt to manage a multi-million dollar sales territory.
After several years at Glatt, he joined his father’s company SolveTech, Inc. as the VP of Sales and Marketing. His main focus in this role has been business strategy and marketing.
