She was elected twice as a Manatee County Commissioner, using the service-oriented skills she attributes to her real estate background to not only make a difference in people’s lives but to effect change in an entire community.
Now having returned to the real estate scene, Robin is proud to be affiliated with Michael Saunders & Company where the brokerage’s market presence, professionalism, marketing, and technology are second-to-none. As a Realtor®, Robin is known for her tenacity, dedication, and compelling drive to exceed expectations. In her career prior to real estate, Robin worked for a subsidiary of Provident Bank in Delaware, running their Trust Department Money Market Funds.

Robin has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Delaware in Home Economics with a minor in Psychology.
Robin has served on the boards of numerous professional and civic organizations and, in fact, has apartments named after her in Manatee County. As Commissioner, she helped spearhead an initiative with Harvey Vengroff to bring affordable housing to the region.

She remains passionate about the need for fostering more affordable housing.
