Roy arrived in Miami form a small town in Maine, to study Business Administration and Marketing at the University of Miami, in 1968. He has experienced Miami thru all of the economic, social and technological changes that have made South Florida the International Business and Vacation destination that it is today.
His family’s story resonates with many others in South Florida, Craftsman-Artisan Grandparents immigrating from Quebec Province, Canada to the United States, looking for better economic opportunities and a brighter future for their young families, father starting Building Supply business in 1958 that is still family operated and going strong today with the children becoming the first generation in the family ever to go to college.
The message was clear, working with his Father at the sales counter of that building supply business: “You don’t stay in business unless you treat the customers right!” During a professional history including retail, service businesses, wholesale, manufacturing, 18+ years of residential and investment Real Estate brokerage, 12 years of commercial office leasing, equity lending and mortgage brokerage, customer service and doing the right thing, these have always been the hallmarks of Roy’s approach to doing business. Doing the right thing, it’s the Golden Rule that still guides Roy every day.
Roy is currently a Broker Associate with REMAX United Realty, in Coral Gables. He previously co-owned his own real estate brokerage company for seven years, averaging ten to fifteen million dollars per year in personal production. He was also Vice President of a local mortgage brokerage company during that time and specialized in hard equity and mortgage financing for foreign national clients.
Roy currently lives in Davie, a rural – suburban community located West of Ft. Lauderdale in Broward County. Davie maintains a definite equestrian – ranch vibe to it while being home to NOVA University and just a short drive away from downtown Ft. Lauderdale and the Beaches. Living in Davie is like being a “Summer Camp”, surrounded by open spaces, native wildlife, parks, ranches and farms, with just about all the shopping, dining and entertainment venues you could ask for nearby.
