About Robert Pursell.
First, call me Rob!

Here's the executive summary: Three kids, four dogs, and seven acres - It's a busy life!

Our family lives in the Coombsville area of Napa, two miles east of downtown in the countryside. As you can imagine, I represent more buyers in Coombsville than anyone else.

I'm on the board of the Napa Valley Country Club - how they let me on with a 36 handicap is a mystery! I'm pretty active in local politics, helping to guide the future of the Napa Valley.

Professionally, I have been selling real estate for 12 years in the Napa Valley. Before moving to Compass in 2018, I spent the past ten years with Sotheby's International Realty.

Before my career in real estate, I spent seven years in Silicon Valley working for various firms including Yahoo! and Microsoft.

On the education side, I have a B.S. in marketing from the University of Southern California and an MBA in marketing and accounting from Vanderbilt University.

My approach to real estate is simple - use my experience, knowledge, and intellect to deliver the best possible outcome for my clients.

I will never hand you off to an assistant or another junior agent. If you hire me, you get me (and my ecosystem of outside professionals).
