Bret Roberts originally from Ohio loves his new home state of Arizona. Due to employment opportunities his parents moved to various states including Michigan, Minnesota and North Carolina. Bret learned many things during those moves; most of all that he wanted to set down roots and as it does for many Arizona stole his heart.
Bret and his wife Oly moved to Arizona 20 years ago, him from Ohio and her from Venezuela. Knowing they wanted to live in a place where they could feel that small town charm but be close to opportunities in the valley, they moved to Maricopa with their three children in 2009 and contributed to the population growth in 2018 when their 4thchild was born. They have gotten involved as Maricopa has grown and prospered through challenging times as at one point it was known as the poster child for the mortgage crash which preceded the great recession. Although now grown and living on their own, their adult children previously attended Maricopa Unified School District public schools and their son is an ASU graduate. The newest arrival to the family, Olivia hasn’t started school yet, but they are looking forward to it.
