Robert started his own brokerage, reSource Real Estate, in 2001 and grew the company to 27 Realtors with 4 branch offices in Westerville, Mansfield, & in the Pearl Alley Market and The Exchange Urban Lofts downtown. His main downtown office location in what became affectionately known as 'The Wedge' (in The Exchange Urban Lofts), often served as a public meeting house and hosted an array of social and arts events over the years.
