Bob Celic is a true North Fork native who was born and bred in Riverhead to a farming and real estate development family. He began his real estate career when he sold one of his Dad's building lots to a customer while his folks were away on vacation...Bob was 13 years old at the time...and the deal closed in three weeks! He was hooked on real estate sales since that moment.
He graduated from Riverhead High School and received degrees in Business Administration and Finance at Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, Georgia.
In addition to managing his family's large duck farm in Aquebogue along with their potato farm in Mattituck, Bob was heavily involved in developing a number of family-owned as well as personally-owned properties throughout Southold, Riverhead and Southampton Townships.
