Bobbe is originally from Texas where she attended the University of Texas and graduated with a B.S. degree.
Bobbe's future changed when mutual college friends introduced her to Joseph Dooley who was in flight school.
Joe received his Navy wings in Pensacola.
Joe was transferred to Miami, Florida where he became a Navy
"Hurricane Hunter." The Dooley family had grown to 5 children and
the need for more space led them to what is now Pinecrest. While Joe did the "Hurricane Hunting", Bobbe
did the house hunting. This was happening in the 1950's. Through this search Bobbe met the pioneer developers
in this growing area. Her personal interest and learning of the building business in South Florida led her
to a new career. With her knowledge and enthusiasm she became Marketing Director for many of the great
builders of prestigious subdivisions.
Bobbe invites you to see her office "Memorabilia Wall" with sales
brochures of our waterfront communities Gables Estates, Old Cutler Bay and Gables by the Sea. Bobbe has the
original Plat of Gables by the Sea as the Exclusive Listing Agent for the first developer. This plat shows
an area to be filled at the end of Lugo for a hotel site. All of this was happening in the mid 1960's.
Many more developments such as Mangowood and Devonwood were sold by the Dooley's as the years went by.
Later, CMDR Joe Dooley resigned from the US Navy and joined Bobbe as their business grew. Development
began to slow and Corporate Relocation became a large part of their business. Transfers for employees of
Esso International, IBM, Ryder Trucking and Burger King are a few of the corporations that Dooley Realty has serviced.
Currently, Dooley Realty assists in marketing for the Trust Department clients of SunTrust Bank of South Florida.
Additionally, we provide assistance to the Probate Court in selling the properties of their clients. A number of South
Florida businesses such as luxury car dealer The Collection and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens, refer their employees
