For Real Estate in the Napa Valley—Boutique Brokerage since 1984

Bob BeckBob Beck was born in California and grew up in a small town in South Dakota. He graduated from Drake University with a degree in business and then went on to Harvard University where he received his M.B.A. in 1966.

Bob then spent several years in the corporate world, becoming Vice President and General Manager of a group of toy companies, the most well known being Flexible Flyer Sleds. He concluded that the corporate lifestyle was not for him and began a new career in real estate in Sausalito, California.
