Bob Massey Carries On Family Tradition of Autos, Real Estate And Rotary

When you mention the Massey family, and you are a Jacksonville native like me, you first think of the Massey Auto Dealerships. But if you are newer to the Northeast Florida market, you may know them to be in commercial real estate as Massey Properties. And then when you think of the last two generations of Massey’s, you can’t help but think of their work with Rotary. I had lunch with Bob Massey, who I have known from South Jax Rotary Club for years. But I didn’t realize that he has carried on the family tradition, not just with Rotary, but also as president of Massey Properties and as a partner in the Orlando Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/RAM dealership. Armed with accounting and real estate experience with two national firms, Bob moved back to Jacksonville from Dallas to help his family transform their former auto dealerships around the state into a successful real estate business. I have found that if you need information regarding auto dealerships, commercial real estate or taking an active role with Rotary, Bob is certainly the “go-to” guy. His website is Bob is on the right in this “Lunch with Les” photo.
