Bobby Wakeland

Real Estate Professional
Real Estate Professional in Draper, Utah United States

As a full-time real estate professional with over a decade of building and construction experience working as both a general contractor and heavy equipment salesperson for Wheeler Machinery (Caterpillar Dealer), Bobby initially was drawn to real estate because of his background and desire to provide high caliber service. He quickly became inspired by the ability to help his clients during a critical and pressure filled time. Because of his background, Bobby has a comprehensive understanding of the buying and selling process from construction through to the closing table. This experience makes him a perfect fit for buyers and sellers at all price points and areas in Utah.

For sellers, Bobby is able to quickly identify potential property improvements that will ensure his clients get top dollar for their home as soon as it hits the market. His marketing plan for sellers is comprehensive, touching digital, print and experiential marketing through the award-winning Summit Sotheby’s International Realty in-house advertising agency. From architectural photography to unrivaled property syndication, Bobby’s clients receive ‘million-dollar marketing’ regardless of area or price point. He pairs his experience and marketing plan with his skills in negotiation, making sure that his clients see their desired results. Bobby is committed to guiding clients through the selling process and successfully closing and opening a new chapter of their lives.

Born and raised in Fairfax, Virginia until the age of eleven, Bobby is one of seven siblings and the son of a Gunnery Sergeant. Annual moves and military housing was the life of his older siblings. Upon relocation to Utah, school sports and snowboarding was his focus. After Graduation, the call of the mountains was too much. He spent two winter seasons living in a small A-frame cabin below Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon. After the 2002 Olympics in Utah, he set off to San Diego, California where he worked for an engineering firm. Through this position he learned from master craftsmen and gained the skills of foundation and drainage - skills and knowledge that lead him to build a successful business back in Utah, licensed and bonded as a B100 General Contractor. With his unrelenting drive to learn more he pivoted to understand the corporate world. At Wheeler Machinery (Caterpillar Dealer) he gained expertise in power generation (stand-by & prime power), earth-moving, heavy equipment, mining and crushing sales and support. Taking a decade of sales and construction experience, he pivoted once more to a career in Real Estate, focusing on residential clients and multi-family investment properties.

Bobby works out of the Summit Sotheby’s International Realty Draper office and specializes in properties along the Wasatch Front. In his spare time, you can find him enjoying and living the Utah lifestyle, doing just about anything outdoors including biking, camping, boating, snowboarding, fishing and serving the community. Bobby is the proud father of two children and believes leading by example is one of the best ways to give back to our community.
