Robert holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Hofstra University. He is a member of Allstate National Advisory Board, Professional Insurance Agents Association, Allstate Agency Executive Council and the New York Allstate Agent Advisory Board. Robert has received numerous Allstate National Conference, Circle of Champions and Leader’s Forum awards and he was named the 2018 LLS Man of the Year.

Robert has been a member of LIBOR as an Affiliate and Chapter sponsor for the past three years. He can be found sponsoring and attending Chapter events across the island.  “I love being involved with LIBOR because of the relationships that I have built with people who are so dedicated to helping people realize the American Dream of home ownership. We have developed great partnerships that have helped me grow my home insurance business.” said Robert.

Massapequa is a close-knit community, Robert and his wife, Joey, are happy to be raising their twin son and daughter nearby. Most days you’ll find Robert at the office or with his family — especially on various sports fields with his kids. But he also does his best to give back to the community through the Massapequa Chamber of Commerce.
