Creation & Innovation
begins with a spark of inspiration!

With the growing demands of an ever-changing real estate industry, encouraging and supportive help is at a premium. That's why, as local market experts, we sought to create a place where we could align our vision with what's most important to many people -- success -- and offer the tools and resources people need to make clear and informed decisions when buying, selling or investing in a home.

We not only elevated the real estate experience by placing an emphasis on supporting clients to realize their dreams, we also created a company that top level agents seek out and proudly call home.

As an impassioned brokerage deeply embedded in the communities we serve, the profound success of our valued clients and agents has enabled us to lead the way to become a leading brokerage, devoted to continuing to exceed the expectations of our countless satisfied clients and inspired agents who have the proper platform to reach and even surpass their dreams.

The Maestro:


With over 30 years of legal, business and real estate experience, Robert Cipolloni has an unwavering passion for real estate that has driven him to deliver exceptional results time and time again.

So, after decades of working for small boutique firms, architectural companies and corporate organizations, Robert sought to create a new type of brokerage. One that was motivated to not only satisfy the diversified goals of both agents and clients, but intent on creating something extraordinary on many levels.

Utilizing his extensive experience in buying and selling residential and commercial properties, as well as his vast network of professional connections, Robert founded Dwelling -- a premier boutique advisory brokerage firm devoted to offering the highest level of personalized service in the industry.

Dwelling has now raised the bar in the real estate industry by creating a revolutionary brokerage which elevates the level of attention, support, and resources offered to agents as well as clients.  Now, with a venerable team by his side, Robert is able to deliver exceptional results like never before.




Norma Johnson comes into real estate from a background in art and architecture and is excited to be a part of Dwelling and Coldwell Banker under the guidance of Robert Cipolloni.

Having worked as a real estate administrator for a busy office for four years, she has experience in dealing with many personalities and projects at once. The move into the sales side was a natural progression that comes from a love of working with clients. Connecting the people with the right new home is a thrill, and through her contacts and relationships with within the real estate networks, she has a proven track record of providing quality service to the people she comes into contact with.
