Bob grew up on a large farm in South Texas and hailed from a family of cattle brokers operating at the San Antonio Stockyards. Wide open spaces and campfires, throw in some fishing and historical sites and Bob is one happy fellow. Bob served in the U.S. Navy and also experienced corporate moves with Polaroid, Kimberly Clark and Dow Chemical. Bob has a B.B.A. from Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State in San Marcos, TX). He left a career in corporate marketing and management, started his own landscaping business for several years until circling back to his family’s historical roots in Virginia. Bob’s family tree stems from Jamestown, his ancestor came over on the Susan B Constant ship from England and it was exciting for him to see the name on the ship’s manifest at the historic settlement.
Tricia has moved too many times to count. Yes, she’s a military brat and proud of it! After a career as a dental hygienist she carried her communications skills to real estate. Having uprooted so frequently, she has a deep empathy for military and corporate family moves and the need for family to connect quickly in new surroundings. Virginia offers what she loves, mountains, the ocean and plenty of places to hike and explore. The beautiful vineyards in Virginia and wineries are wonderful places to experience, bring a picnic basket or enjoy the fare provided by so many of the tasting rooms. Given anywhere to live, they chose Charlottesville and would do it again!
