Professional's Bio

Bob played basketball and baseball at Central Catholic and at the University of Portland. He graduated from the University of Portland in 1959. For the next 10 years he represented McGraw Hill Publishing Company marketing textbooks to high schools and universities. Several promotions and several company transfers found his young family in San Francisco. A wonderful area, but not where they wanted to raise their family. They did miss the Northwest and had also developed a strong interest in real estate and a desire to work for themselves by building a company. In 1970, Bob and his wife Karen purchased Whitfield Brothers, a small real estate company with a history dating back to 1935. They continued to build the company over the next 28 years to 5 offices and over 100 Agents. They sold the residential division to NRT, the parent company of Coldwell Banker in 1998. At that time, Bob and Karen renamed their small commercial company Coldwell Banker Commercial Bob Bernhardt Associates. In 2005, a young Broker, Michael Jenkins joined ownership with Bob and Karen, renaming the company Coldwell Banker Commercial Jenkins-Bernhardt Associates. Bob later sold his half of the company making Michael the sole owner of Coldwell Banker Commercial Jenkins & Associates. Bob takes pride in the company's philosophy of providing customer-focused service of the highest quality. Our success in providing high-quality, "client 1st service", is a key reason why repeat customers represent more than half of our office's annual sales. Bob remains busy doing what he likes the most, personally representing buyers and sellers in their real estate needs. He specializes in downtown Vancouver having represented owners and buyers of many of the largest sales in the last 5 years.
