Selling Real Estate involves so much more than putting a sign in the yard and advertising. It's the salespeople that make the difference! The phone can ring and an email or text can be received but what happens after that? True real estate sales experience requires the ability to build relationships, convert leads, negotiate terms and successfully take a transaction to the closing table. Bob and Tia Rieck have a proven track record encompassing all of these abilities with 60 years of combined sales experience. Bob and Tia both grew up in Traverse City, Michigan, where they met and eventually got married. After graduating college with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, Tia worked in property management and soon after she started her career in real estate. She has practiced real estate for almost 30 years and has a background working in title insurance, adding to her experience. Bob received a degree in Industrial Supervision & Management with a Plastics Engineering concentration and began a career. He then took over his father’s tool and dye business and grew the company for many years, managing 85 employees. After years of running a business and gaining unmatched experience, he joined Tia in real estate and they combined forces to sell real estate as a team. Bob and Tia specialize in condominium and new construction sales and have led the way in downtown Traverse City condominium sales over the last 13 years. In addition, they are also highly experienced in waterfront, residential, storage unit development and commercial sales in the Greater Grand Traverse - 5 County Region. Over the last 13 years, Bob and Tia have sold $150 million in Traverse City condo sales (324 condo units). Over the last 5 years, Bob and Tia have sold $148.7 million in sales (490 units). Bob and Tia are truly so grateful to their clients for allowing them to do what they love most - sell real estate. In 2021, Bob and Tia’s daughter Raquel has joined their real estate team and they are all so excited for the future ahead. Raquel grew up watching her parents practice real estate and she always wanted to join them one day. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Accountancy, Raquel co-founded an e-commerce business and has been running it for the last few years. While still running her business on the side, she is excited for her career in real estate.
Bob, Tia and Raquel all love northern Michigan so much! Bob and Tia grew up in the area and raised Raquel and their son, Connor there and they all have a profound appreciation for it. They all love Lake Michigan beaches and sunsets, boating, hiking and more. They are so happy to help people discover the northern Michigan area.
