Meet Bobby Curtis.  Buyer’s agent. Listing agent.  Renovator.

A down-to-earth Midwesterner hailing from the great state of Michigan, Bobby harnesses equal parts brains, brawn, and enthusiasm for every client and project.  After graduating from the University of Michigan, he began a career in the pharmaceutical industry focusing on sales, marketing, and consulting.  In those five years, he was even lucky enough to roam around Europe for short assignment in Geneva, Switzerland.  Nevertheless, the European trip came to an end and he traveled back stateside where he traded in his suit for a high-quality flannel and some Carhartt’s.

  After purchasing his first house to flip, Bobby rolled up his sleeves and started in on what would become his passion – transforming houses into homes by unleashing the beauty of each unique property.

Since 2010, Bobby has bought and restored several houses a year in Portland, both large and small, with great success.  Armed with extensive first-hand knowledge of house restoration, Bobby offers his clients an exceptional eye to pinpoint property potential and value.  Whether you are searching for complete fixer property or a dialed-in and buttoned-up home, he is happy to guide you through the process of finding your perfect place.  If you are selling your property, Bobby’s keen eye will help you showcase all of your property’s best features.  Because Bobby buys and sells several properties of his own every year, he better understands what it’s like to be in his clients shoes. And as an experienced buyer’s agent, listing agent, and renovator, Bobby is well-versed in negotiating a great price and terms for his clients.

If you’re looking to get a sneak peak of Bobby in action, you can watch him (and his mom) on an episode of First Time Flippers on the DIY Network. Or you can catch him on Katu’s Afternoon Live daytime talk show once a month, discussing Portland Real Estate and House Restoration.

Bobby made our move smooth: I am indebted to him for his professional help during a really tough time for us. We needed to have a different living situation and property, and he made that possible.
