After growing up in the South Okaloosa & South Walton Counties, Robbie left for Tennessee in 1992 for a collegiate football scholarship at Middle Tennessee State University. After receiving a degree in Business Administration & Finance, Robbie worked in the software and banking industry, living and traveling in various locations throughout the country. Robbie and his son, Will, returned to the Emerald Coast in 2003 to continue his banking career as a construction loan officer. â€śBeing a native of this area,â€ť says Roberts, â€śtruly makes me appreciate the transformation of developments along our world-class coastline. Alys Beach is the most unique development on the Emerald Coast as well as the state of Florida. I am endeared to have the opportunity to be part of globally recognized work of art such as Alys Beach.â€ťBookmark the permalink.
