Here a personal interview with Rob Estell about buying or selling a pool route.  


The services that I provide for buying a pool business is as follows:

With my 12 years in the swimming pool industry, as well as over 20 years experience in business startups and sales, I can offer a greater expertise than any other person. My credentials are one of a kind, and not only can no one match my credentials, no one can exceed my qualifications and past performance.

Question: I spoke to another Broker and he said that I only need an occupational license to clean swimming pools in Florida. Do i really need a contractors license to clean pools in Florida?

Answer: Yes. and this is not my opinion, its the Law. The Florida CILB made a declatory statement saying that you can ONLY add chemicals to a swimming pool without a contractors license. Here is a Link to all of the information to put this to bed.  



Question: I saw another business offered on another web site. Can you help me with that purchase? How much will that cost me?

Answer: Yes I can help you. It wont cost you anything if the other broker is willing to split the commission. If the other Broker is not willing to split a commission, In my opinion, they are hiding information that they do not want a professional to find, or there may not be a business to sell, the broker is running a blind add, looking for buyers in a "Bait & Switch scheme" to sell them another listing.

 Question: Are all terms and conditions to a Purchase agreement, or Letter of Intent negotiable?

Answer: Yes All terms and conditions are negotiable, don't let the "other brokers" trick you to believing anything different, especially the Transaction fees.

Question: Do you present any and all offers ?

Answer: Yes, I will present any and all offers in writing to my client.

Question: Are all the listings on your website your listings, or are you showing me someone else's listings?

Answer: All Listings on my website,, the MLS, and the other secret sites, are my listings.

Question: With your low commission, do you charge a transaction fee?

Answer: NO. A transaction fee is a cost that other brokers will try to push on you so they can make more money on you. The only fee you pay is $1,000 or 5%, which ever is greater. PERIOD !

Question: Do you put everything in writing?

Yes, All Purchase agreement, Offers, and Letter of Intent agreements are in writing and signed by all parties.

Question: What are your qualifications to assist me in the purchase of a pool business?

Answer : First, I am a licensed Real Estate Sales Associate by the State of Florida.

Secondly, I hold the highest Florida Swimming Pool License, Commercial Pool Builder CPC1458035, and the highest professional designation of NSPF CPO Instructor 33-101010.

Lastly, I am an instructor at Goldcoast schools where I teach several construction subjects, but mostly Swimming Pool Licensing.
