Get to know Robert Schmalz
I am the CEO of West LA Real Estate Group. For many years I was in the garment industry manufacturing and selling to many of the Top Retailers such as Gap, Anne Klein and Aberchrombie to name a few. I built this business from the ground up and grew it to $60 million before the pressures from overseas made manufacturing in US and Mexico un-profitable.
I have been involved in many aspects of Real Estate for the last 10 years. First working with investments in shopping malls, multi unit dwellings and condos. During the period that I was involved in these investments I began working the REO and short sale end of the business. About two years ago I moved into Residential properties, decided to get my Brokers license, which I have now for about 1 year, and become associated with Keller Williams. I find them to be innovative and eeducation driven while working in a very friendly and cooperative atmosphere.
I have lived iin the Santa Monica and Brentwood areas of Los Angeles for over 25 years. My wife Barbara and our 11 year old Jacob live in an area of Brentwood called Crestwood Hills. I have two grown children. Craig and Danielle, that are living in New Jersey and Colorado respectively
Like many of you my family is a priority and we spend a lot of time, when school does not interfere, on vacation in Mexico or skiing in Colorado. I have another son living in N.J. and a daughter who lives in Colorado.
My commitment to my clients is only surpassed by my commitment to my family. I bring top notch negotiating skills (Trust me you have never negotiated until you negotiate for pennies with the Gap) along with my education as a Broker to my customers.
I look forward to chatting and perhaps working together with this community of online Real Estate Professionals
