As a young man, Bob Pennypacker was driven to help others realize their vision. Some things never change.
Some stories really tell you a lot about a person and what makes them tick. Bob Pennypacker has one such story from his college days. While studying abroad in historic Lund, Sweden, he took a short trip to Norway during spring break. While strolling through the quaint fjord town of Aurland, the American student happened upon an architect’s office and had an idea to go in and ask for a job. Twenty minutes later, Bob’s idea turned into reality when he landed his first job in architecture—-half a world away from his native Northern California. As a young man, Bob had the vision to combine his passions for travel and learning new languages (he speaks Swedish and French, plus some German, Italian and Spanish) with architecture. “It is a global profession,’ says Bob. “Architecture was a ticket to travel.”
A Passionate Journey
After earning a Master’s degree in architecture from Columbia, Bob’s vision became reality. Life and work took him around the world helping others realize their visions in Japan, France, the Middle East, as well as trips to India, Nepal, Kenya and Brazil, to name a few.
But despite having worked and traveled around the world, Bob headed back to California and Settled less than 150 miles from where he was raised. “I have always believed that wherever I was, it was the best place I could be”, says Bob. And now that place is Healdsburg, where he has transitioned from global architect into hometown real estate professional. And if you ask Bob, he’ll tell you not much has changed.
A Natural Extension
While he settled down to enjoy the small-town feel of Healdsburg, he has made his name in real estate for the same reasons he was successful in architecture. “My passion in architecture has always been houses, so as a real estate professional I’m in heaven,” says Bob, who designed and built his own home. “I have found that being a REALTOR® is a natural extension of being an architect.” He has an innate ability to see something not as it is, but as it can be. This provides his clients with a great advantage whether buying or selling property throughout the North Bay. If you are selling he can help you position your home for the best possible sale. If you are buying, he can help you find hidden value in that special property. Bob’s main goal is to guide you in the right direction and help you.
