Throughout all his life endeavors, Bobby Neely has consistently brought the same traits to achieve success: hard work, reliability, diligence, communication, commitment, and authenticity.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Bobby set his sights on becoming a professional athlete from a young age. An All American High School football player, Bobby went on to earn a full athletic scholarship from the University of Virginia and started for the Cavaliers football team as a true freshman during his rookie year. Bobby finished his time at UVA as one of the most prolific All Around tight ends in the school's history, contributing to becoming an integral part of the team.
While most football dreams end at college graduation, Bobby was talented and determined enough to beat the odds and was drafted by the Chicago Bears as a tight end in 1996. He spent two seasons in the NFL before an injury led him to take early retirement and move to Los Angeles to pursue his two other passions — fitness and acting. For over a decade Bobby excelled in both pursuits, building up a loyal roster of personal training clients and teaching at Equinox Fitness while also starring on hit TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS: Los Angeles, General Hospital and Seal Team. Once again, being part of a cast meant more to Bobby than simply individual achievements.
More recently, Bobby has turned his professional focus to the luxury real estate industry, delivering the same commitment to excellence that he had on the football field to each client meeting. Just as throughout his football and acting careers, Bobby pledges to give his all as a team player to ensure his clients’ real estate experiences are positive.
While he originally hails from the south, Bobby has called the Los Angeles area his home for more than 20 years. He has lived in neighborhoods across the city — from Pasadena to Santa Monica and Sherman Oaks to the South Bay — and is familiar with the residential marketplace both as a customer and a real estate expert.
