Welcome Home, Vlad Roytapel
Vlad Roytapel, REALTOR®, joins the Indian Wells office of Bennion Deville Homes, located at 74-910 Highway 111. Vlad is a Palm Desert resident and works with clients throughout the Coachella Valley. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from California State University, Fullerton, and he is also a California Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
Prior to earning his real estate license, Vlad spent 4 years working in accounting and finance as a CPA, taking on projects from large corporations and private capital firms and also conducting audits for publicly traded companies. His experience working in the industry coupled with his knowledge of taxes and real estate offer unique insight into the financial mechanics of a real estate deal. “Buying a home is usually the largest purchase anyone will make in their life,” Vlad says. “I can help my clients achieve that goal of home ownership while also assisting them in understanding the definitions and financial aspects of the purchase. Having a background in finance allows me to truly guide my clients down a path that is both emotionally and potentially financially rewarding to them through the purchase of their home.”
Real estate has always interested Vlad despite his talents in accounting. “I was introduced to the unlimited potential of real estate through my friend’s dad, who was a home investor in Las Vegas. I saw firsthand how rewarding the real estate industry is, from helping people make the financial and emotional investment in a home to fixing up a house and turning it into something fresh and new to be enjoyed. I love my role as a real estate professional because I help people achieve their goal of home ownership and enjoy the symbolism of what a home represents in our lives. Making an impact on that deep of a level with others is very special and I am humbled by the opportunity,” Vlad continues.
Regardless of the professional hat he has worn, Vlad has found success by sticking to two guiding principles. “Effort and integrity are key. You gain experience and mastery through your effort by working hard and consistently striving to be better each and every day. Integrity is just as important as it is the long-term answer to sustainability in business and in life. I want to be able to sleep well at night knowing that I made the right decisions and offered the best advice possible to my clients, so acting with integrity at all times by putting my clients’ needs first and doing the right thing are paramount to creating a strong business.”
The path to the Southern California desert was circuitous for Vlad. He was born in the former Soviet Union Republic of Moldova. His parents left Eastern Europe to start over in the United States, settling in Michigan. In 2006, Vlad and his family left the Midwest for sunny Orange County. “We used to visit the desert when I was in high school, which was my introduction to how incredible our area truly is. My wife and I eventually moved to the Coachella Valley full-time in 2018 and haven’t looked back. Going from the fast-paced lifestyle of the Southern California coast to the more relaxed environment of the desert has been incredible. As someone who has immigrated from Europe and lived in both the Midwest and the SoCal beach cities, I can connect with just about everyone who is looking to call the desert home.” Some of Vlad’s favorite things to do in the desert include hitting the links, playing tennis, hiking, and going out to eat with family.
Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect place for Vlad to call home because of the company’s core focus of putting clients first. “I was drawn to Bennion Deville Homes because we share the same philosophy of always doing what’s right for the client, and being an independent brokerage ensures that ethos will remain. Additionally, Bennion Deville Homes has a classy, high-end brand and reputation around Southern California,” Vlad concludes.
Adds Managing Broker Charlie White, “Vlad Roytapel is a great addition to our office. He has a very unique background in corporate accounting and high finance, and he has a passion for helping others. Those traits coupled with his outgoing personality and ability to connect with people of all backgrounds give him all of the skills that make up a successful real estate professional, and we are excited to help him take his business to the next level. On behalf of everyone, welcome home, Vlad.”
