The Ransom Company continues the family tradition with Robert and his father, Sid working together to build a premier brokerage, design/build construction and development company under one roof.

Robert is also a founding partner of HelpingHammers.org, a pending not-for-profit organization aimed at supporting our country’s deployed service members, veterans and their families by providing home contracting, maintenance and repair services free of charge.

Robert currently resides in Alexandria, VA with his fiancé Meg and golden retriever Patriot.
