Bob Rand knows how to work hard and build successful team. Ask anyone in Volusia County where Rand serves as a leader in his business, his community and more.
So, some might be surprised that Bob accepted the top leadership role for the area’s 10 County overlay commercial real estate board, CFCAR.
“As we serve our business and investment clients across the greater Central Florida region, we see that commercial brokers and agents find solutions and educational and business development opportunities when joining CFCAR,” Rand explains. “I want to help CFCAR grow so that our business leaders have even an even stronger resource in their Commercial Realtor community,” Rand shares, adding “and it doesn’t hurt that I love meeting new people.”
Building strong teams seems to come naturally for Rand. Since he immersed himself in Central Florida’s commercial real estate in 2005, he has closed countless transactions, with a focus on industrial markets in Volusia and Seminole counties. A dozen years ago he dug even deeper and became a principal at Daytona’s Coldwell Banker Commercial Benchmark where he focuses his team on Investment Properties and Industrial and Retail Sales and Leasing for his clients across Florida.
This proud CCIM also serves on the City of Daytona Beach Economic Development Advisory Board and is active in Team Volusia Economic Development Corporation (TVEDC). Other community involvement includes Rotary International, he serves on the Board of Directors for the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce, and he is a past president of the Port Orange –South Daytona Chamber of Commerce.
Prior to his time in commercial real estate, Bob was a long standing multi-unit franchisee for one of the largest fast-food franchises in the country. Bob has resided in the Greater Daytona Beach Area for over 40 years. Bob is married to his wife Teresa and they have five adult children and four beautiful grandchildren. In his “free” time, he enjoys family and is an avid golfer. He is a graduate of Florida State’s College of Business.
Rand says he is excited to help CFCAR grow and is impressed with the power brokers joining him on the 2021 board of directors. “The success and depth of this year’s board shows our Realtor community that CFCAR means business. So get ready for some exciting new features to your existing membership platform!”
