Real estate is the lifeblood of Robert’s family. With a father, sister, partner and cousins rooted in real estate careers including residential home sales, property management, and commercial appraisal and development, Robert grew up taking long family drives to view properties throughout Chicago, and participating in vibrant dinner conversations that inevitably turned to Chicago real estate (and still do). With this upbringing, Robert developed an instinctive knowledge about the local market from a young age.
For the past 25 years, Robert has operated a successful real estate business – most recently with Keller Williams in South Florida and @properties in Chicago. In recent years, he has been designated by The Chicago Association of REALTORS as a top-selling agent, with a volume of sales placing him within the top five percent of sales agents in Chicago.
Robert has earned a reputation as a social media leader in real estate. In its July 2009 issue, Illinois Realtor Magazine profiled Robert’s strategy of using social media tools to better communicate with clients. Using numerous web sites and blogs dedicated to real estate, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida, such as www.sunshineguru.com, www.robertdarrow.com and www.southfloridahomepro.net, Robert has established a pervasive Internet presence that not only reflects his dedication to Chicago real estate, but also provides clients with valuable tips, tricks and insights along the way.
Robert is a member of The Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors, where he currently sits on the Grievance and Professional Standards Committees. Robert is a longtime supporter of the Howard Brown Health Center, the Human Rights Campaign and the NGLTF, and most recently rode the SMART Ride from Miami to Key West that raised $1-million to support local HIV & AIDS related charities. Robert attended the University of Iowa.
