Bob has been with Coldwell Banker North Shore for 11 years and has learned over time that, while he loves his job, his job is not who he is. Bob graduated from Macalester College in St. Paul in 1967 and had quite a professional life before coming to real estate sales, ranging from the automobile business to the Commerce department at the State of Minnesota to being President of St. Paul's Winter Carnival.

    Since joining Coldwell Banker North Shore, Bob has been awarded membership in the Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society in 2018, and the International Diamond Society in 2014, 2016, and 2017. He was also awarded membership in the prestigious Coldwell Banker International Presidents Circle for 2020.

    Bob is a member of the Lake Superior Association of Realtors, Minnesota Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, American Legion, Cook County Historical Society, and the First Congregational United Church of Christ Grand Marais. His volunteer work includes the church, WTIP-FM, the Salvation Army, and the Cook County Family YMCA where he also enjoys working out.

    Bob and his wife Helen are avid golfers, bikers, hikers, and readers who loves the natural beauty, friendly people, and recreational opportunities that come with living up north.

    My Experience

    • I started in real estate in 1999 not long after I moved to Cook County. I joined Coldwell Banker North Shore in 2010 and have been the leading non-broker agent in this office since then as well as one of the top producing agents in this market year after year. In 2014 I was honored to have received the International Coldwell Banker Diamond Society Award for outstanding production in our market. Prior to moving to Cook County I was involved in the automobile business in the Twin Cities for most of my adult working life, most of the time as partners in Bob Carter Ford in Inver Grove Heights, MN with my father.
