Ron PalmerThis week we took a few minutes to get to know Ron Palmer. Ron is a Commercial Realtor for Steve Fineberg and Associates, and long-time friend of Steve and Ida. We appreciate all he does on our team!

Q: Where are you from?
A: I grew up in Chicago, Illinois and received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. I also have my Ph.D. in Psychology and spent time teaching at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, Illinois.

Q: What brought you to Northwest Arkansas?
A: I had a business opportunity to come to this area where I bought some commercial land and commercial lots to develop. I also purchased and developed the AQ Chicken Houses at that time.

Q: How long have you worked with Steve Fineberg & Associates?
A: I have worked for the company for about 3.5 years, but I have known Steve since he first came to this area in the late 1990s and we have been friends ever since. I am lucky to be part of his team. Steve is an independent hard-working entrepreneur who has carved out a unique niche in commercial real estate in Northwest Arkansas.

Q: What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
A: I am a motor home traveler and motorcycle enthusiast. I also love going to the gym and I have been a racquet ball player for quite some time.

Q: Where do you like to vacation?
A: I always head west instead of east. My favorite states are Colorado and Montana. I also enjoy Idaho and Southern California. My wife Shona and I are lucky enough to have a daughter who lives in San Diego, California, so we get the opportunity to go visit her there often. I have three other daughters scattered in Springfield, Missouri and Kansas City, Missouri and one here in Fayetteville. We enjoy travelling and spending time with each of our children.

Q: What are some fun or random facts about yourself?
A: The first is that I have owned and ridden a motorcycle for forty five years and have lived to tell about it. I also have always had a unique interest in architecture and have been fortunate enough to build several custom homes.
