  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (2)

    • Robert: (on his show "My House My Castle") Some have told me how advice in the series has helped them. A policeman said a house he'd looked at turned out to have eight of the problems on a checklist we'd broadcast. It started with no under-floor insulation and grew. He said he'd run away from the house as fast as possible. It's tremendous that My House is both fun and really helping.

    • Robert: (on his show "My House My Castle") Kiwis love their houses, New Zealand has one of the highest rates of home ownership, and we tend to spend a lot of time looking after them. My House delivers information in a relaxed format that's entertaining. We tell it like it is, but have added a few quirks... in fact, in a way, I'm the straight man.

    Trivia (13)

    • Robert enjoys cycling.

    • In the first season of his show My House My Castle Robert was very careful to be straight forward and businesslike. But in the second season he took a more tongue in cheek approach to the subject of dream homes that become a worst nightmare, and the ratings were consistently in the top ten as a result.

    • Robert got to use his skills as a lawyer for his show My House My Castle. While others discuss renovations and locations, Robert digs into the zoning laws, consumer's rights and disputes that go along with owning a piece of real property.

    • Robert has done commercials for Roselli Neylon Cycles (Radio), Spell Shell (Radio), and Otago Med. School.

    • Robert got to mix his two main professions, law and being a TV personality on the New Zealand reality show You Be the Judge. He served as the on-screen lawyer of a woman who had a paternity test done for her son on national TV. This event also caused an uproar with the country's Children, Young Persons and Their Families Agency for allegedly traumatising the boy by subjecting him to public scrutiny in this fashion. But Robert pointed out that this brought the boy closure, which was ultimately beneficial to him.
