Rob’s passion in life is serving others. Being a Realtor® is the hardest job he’s ever done, but he cannot imagine doing anything else. The most rewarding part of his job is that moment - at the end of the day - when he hands the keys to his client. This is what makes being a Realtor® worthwhile.
Having grown up in small town BC, when there was no internet and boundless opportunities to explore nature, Rob developed a love for the outdoors and learned to quite literally fend for himself. It was Rob’s previous careers, as a chef and then as an actor, that brought out his strong negotiating skills which is one of his biggest assets as a Realtor®.
Rob knows how to think fast on his feet and he never wants to admit defeat for his client. He makes sure he acts with his client’s best interest in mind, understanding that a house is one of life’s biggest investments. He will fight for you! His end goal, however, is to bring a deal together so its beneficial for all parties.
Rob treats everyone the way he wants his family treated. When you’re looking at buying, he will take the time to do a comparative market analysis and work out all the costs involved, such as property transfer tax, lawyer fees, and moving expenses to make sure you have a life after buying a home.
A family man at heart, Rob enjoys nothing more than being with wife and three boys. Holidays are off the beaten path in the family travel trailer to savour being unplugged, on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast. Rob lives in Cloverdale and prides himself on giving back to his community by shopping locally, volunteering for local organizations, and being active in his church.

What Client Say
We worked with Rob Lacey of Katronis Real Estate for both the sale of our townhouse and the purchase of our house. He was personable and extremely knowledgeable about current market conditions and the areas we were considering for our purchase. Throughout the entire process of selling and buying, he was always available to answer questions, and took our views and needs to heart.
Not only did we feel that the entire Katronis team treated us well, they put us in contact with amazing people for other aspects of the sale and purchase process. Katronis is a group that values relationships, and they surround themselves with like-minded professionals.
We would recommend Rob and the rest of the Katronis team to anyone. Thanks Rob!
