Robert Ball is the visionary behind Pearl District Property Management. As a founder of Pearl Real Estate and one of the Pearl District's leading developers, he saw a need for professional and quality property management services in the Pearl District and beyond. Robert approached Kevin with the idea of forming Pearl Property Management because Pearl Real Estate's customers and buyers were consistently asking for a quality company to manage their residential investments. Robert did not feel there was a company that met these criteria. As a result, Pearl Property Management was formed and is closely affiliated with Pearl Real Estate. Robert brings enormous experience to his advisory role. He has personally managed residential properties for nearly 20 years and has developed over $250 million of residential and commercial property in the Pearl District, NW Portland, and the Metro area. He brings this extensive background in negotiating, acquiring, developing and managing real estate developments and properties to Pearl Property Management. Robert attended the University of Oregon and majored in Business. In his spare time, Robert is a Reserve Police Captain with the Portland Police Bureau, currently serves on the City of Portland's Charter Commission, and is an avid golfer and traveler.
