Robert assisted my partner and I in the acquisition of LaCorte Restaurant, business and real estate. Now know as Redfish Point. The transaction was complicated. However, Robert brought us to closing in short order and did a wonderful job! I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring a highly skilled broker.

I met Robert a few years ago when I came to Florida to buy a home. Once Robert understood my game plan, he recognized my need for a business as well. We purchased one of his listings (Point 57 Kitchen & Cocktails) on Del Prado Blvd. The transaction was seamless and we closed in 40 days. Thanks for the excellent work…

I have been a professional residential real estate investor for over two decades. I met Robert over a year ago in an attempt to transition into commercial real estate investments. Robert patiently and methodically pursued investments that would meet my criteria. Along the way, he assisted in bringing me up to speed on the financial analytics required to evaluate these investments. His diligence and skill set have proven to be extraordinary. The acquisition we made turned out to be a complex but flawless transaction which is performing exactly as he described it would. I am most pleased. I will certainly be using Robert again and suggest to anyone that Robert is the right man for the job.

We have known and worked with Robert DeRupo buying and selling real estate in Florida since about 2002.When we came to Cape Coral from Ohio to look for real estate the market was buzzing. Not knowing any agents we went from office to office trying to find someone to assist us. This was quite an adventure as all were far too busy to help us at the time. All except Robert DeRupo. Robert took us out a couple days and showed us the entire Cape Coral area. We purchased nothing. The following year we came again and did make some offers through Robert and purchased a lot. However, we wanted to invest in more than one parcel and worked with Robert from Ohio, many times only by phone, purchasing several properties including a very lovely condominium. We found this experience to be nothing less than superior, with great advice and absolutely wonderful service from Robert. We have remained friends through the years and are still working with him to handle all our real estate business in Cape Coral. If you are looking for someone who is extremely knowledgeable, honest and hard-working, Robert is your man.

“It has been a pleasure working with Robert DeRupo and also getting to know him on a personal level since 1998. At first Robert assisted me as a State Certified Energy Rater. We worked together on a energy efficient home design project which was the first of it’s kind in the area. It became very successful throughout the years that other companies used our methods as a stepping stone to do similar energy efficient home projects. It could not have been done without Roberts hard work and dedication to the project. Since then we have done business together on various levels. I have come to know Robert DeRupo to be honest and a man of his word personally and in business. The type of guy you can still seal a deal on a hand shake. They don’t make them like that anymore!”
