Rob Curtain

Managing Director

0418 310 870


Rob Curtain has been connected to the Mornington Peninsula & Real Estate for most of his life.  Commencing his real estate career only a few days after leaving school in 1985, Rob soon became one of Melbourne's youngest dynamic estate agents.  Successfully selling many of Melbourne's prestige properties through the difficult period of the early 90's, he learnt quickly that real estate isn't always a sellers market.  Rob understands that the art of negotiation, patience and hard work are essential in ensuring a positive outcome for all his clients.

After 10 years in the world of property, Rob moved to the World of Entertainment as part of Crown Casino's original marketing team, responsible for creating, building and maintaining an international brand both locally in Melbourne and a two year posting in Singapore.  He gained a wealth of knowledge in marketing across all media disciplines working alongside the world's leading marketeers.  His innovation, attention to detail and energy were indispensable in his position as a senior executive in one of Australia's largest companies.

From coming down most weekends in his childhood, to spending time at his holiday house in Sorrento and now residing in Red Hill after building his dream home, Rob has an extensive knowledge of the Peninsula and has always loved the lifestyle that's on offer all year round.  He understands how his clients value and enjoy the Peninsula lifestyle, from escaping the hustle & bustle of city life to those wishing to make a permanent move to the Mornington Peninsula.

In 2008 Rob moved permanently with his wife and young family to Portsea and believes it's the perfect community in which to raise a young family.  Returning to real estate, Rob picked up where he left off, quickly establishing himself as the leading luxury agent, transacting more sales over $3 million dollars than any other sales agent on the Peninsula over the last five years.

Rob is delighted to be associated with yet another world class brand as Managing Director of Peninsula Sotheby's International Realty.  Rob's knowledge and expertise in real estate, marketing and communication is the complete package, and ensures that all his clients receive the same level of luxury service across every price point.

Rob is a commercially trained helicopter pilot and keen single figure golfer.  Married with two sons, in his time off he can be found on his tractor, or enjoying a local pinot noir with friends and family.
