Robert’s expertise in sustainable design, architecture, and urbanism, as well as his in-depth knowledge of Austin’s radical transformations over the past 30 years, make him the ideal partner in finding your next living space, office space, or assisting you in property investment.
Robert combines a sophisticated design understanding with deep roots as a Texas native to offer invaluable resources and insights for real estate in the Lonestar State. He grew up swimming in Barton Springs in Austin, eating his grandmother’s traditional Tejano cuisine in New Braunfels, and playing golf in Lufkin. His personal experience growing up in Austin and East Texas have given him a one-of-a-kind perspective on the state’s diverse history and culture, leading to a full understanding of the state’s ongoing urban and rural transformations.
Robert earned his B.A. in History and Geography, as well as his doctorate degree in Urban Geography at The University of Texas at Austin. He also holds master degrees in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning from The University of California, Berkeley, and in City and Regional Planning from The Ohio State University. His specialty is in architecture, urban design, and city transformations. He has worked over 10 years as a professor at elite universities in the United States and in Europe, teaching students the ways in which American cities socially, economically, and environmentally function. He is the author of the award-winning book, “The Taco Truck: How Mexican Street Food is Transforming the American City."
After living, learning, and instructing across the globe, Robert has returned to his hometown of Austin, Texas to manage his real estate investment company. Robert still teaches urban and cultural geography periodically in the Department of Geography and the Environment at The University of Texas. When he’s not working in real estate or teaching undergraduates, Robert is eating his way across Austin, playing the drums, wrestling with his dog, or is out on the golf course pursuing his passion of striking a little white ball across the landscape.
