Spotlight Business of the Month
Cliff Zarbock, local realtor, received the Spotlight Business of the Month Award at the Flour Bluff Business Association regular monthly meeting on June 8, 2016. As is posted on the FBBA website, “Cliff was born and raised here in Corpus Christi and graduated from Flour Bluff High School. Before getting into Real Estate, Cliff was a school teacher at a local private school. He jumped into Real Estate in 2011 and quickly became ranked in the TOP 5 PERCENT of all the local agents. On average Cliff currently sells 45 homes every year totaling over $6 Million in sales volume. He represents the seller on an average of 50% of those sales making him an expert at representing both sides of the transaction. Whether you’re wanting to buy or sell, Cliff has the experience you’re looking for. He and his wife Ashley are currently raising 3 children, Zach(16), Ava(3) and Easton(2) with another on the way.”
“I am happy to announce that I have moved my office into Flour Bluff at 10001 SPID. The new name of it is Flour Bluff Realty. It is a brokerage dedicated for Flour Bluff. If you have questions about Real Estate or need free advice, just come let me know. I am excited to be part of the association, and I appreciate the board for acknowledging my presence with the Spotlight. It’s kind of a pinnacle for me. Growing up in the Bluff, I really have a fond passion for the area. I feel like we are the heartbeat of the Bluff, and for me to be a part of that feels like I really made it to the top here,” said Zarbock upon receiving the award.
