From: Dil Kang & Sharaf Rizaie
Relation: His Real Estate Agents

Robert was a recent client of ours and we helped him sell his investment property in Guilford. Throughout the transaction, he helped us learn a lot about investing in real estate, the life lessons he took from his time as a bar owner and an entrepreneur. I knew Robert as the “Real Estate Man”. He had an investment portfolio of properties that I aspired to have. I met Robert 3 months before he passed and got to learn a lot about his life. He inspired me in so many ways and taught us little life lessons like we were his children. My fondest memory of Robert was when I went to his house to help him find a storage locker for all the goods he had stored in the garage of the house we had helped him sell… he insisted that I take the golf bag he had lying around his house which he never used.


Relation: Cousin

Our sincere and deepest condolences to the entire Sequeira family.

A heartbreaking moment. RIP.
