Bob Krause, REALTOR®

Born in Syracuse, New York, my journey into real estate began in early 1976 at the age of 26 after serving three years in the U.S. and Thailand as a flight engineer for the U.S. Army.

In June 1977 I joined CENTURY 21 Gagnon Realty in Rialto, California. In 1978 and 1979, I received the prestigious CENTURY 21 Million Dollar Club award. During this time, I attended all the big name sales trainers including but not limited to Tom Hopkins, Cavet Roberts, Floyd Wickman, Joseph Todd, Roger Butcher and Jim Rohn. These seminars helped me achieve and maintain my top producer status. Deciding real estate would be my career, I obtained my California Broker’s license in 1984.

Loving my career but unhappy with onership and management, I obtained my Designated Broker’s license and along with six associates purchased the office and changed the name to CENTURY 21 Golden Rule Realty. Over the next 5 years, I bought out each partner and became the sole owner.

In 1989, I sold the franchise and retired to the river in Parker, Arizona. To keep busy during my retirement, I purchased a convenience store that sold gasoline and sundries to the river/party crowd. A personal issue necessitated a move to the Phoenix area and this was when I decided to make Chandler my home.

After practicing real estate in and around Phoenix as an Associate Broker, I finally landed at CENTURY 21 Desert Palm in October 1997. In February 1999, I accepted the responsibilities of Designated Broker. Since becoming licensed in Arizona, I have continually been a member of the National Association of Realtors â, Arizona Association of Realtors® and the Southeast Valley Association of Realtors®(SEVRAR).

I’ve attended and received certification from Hyland Bay for the New Homes Sales Unlimited program and am a Designated Nehemiah Specialist. Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors® has awarded me the Million Dollar Producers Club award for 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. I have also consistently been a member of the CENTURY 21 Multi Million Dollar Club since 2000.

From 2002 through 2003, I served on the SEVRAR Grievance Committee. I sat on the Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors® Board of Directors for the 2004-2005 term.
