Personal Statement

Thank you for taking time to read my credentials. As you will see on my resume, I possess more than five years of hands on experience in land acquisition, land development and project management in Florida with a strong emphasis on acquiring and developing properties in the Treasure Coast, Space Coast and Orlando Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA's.)

In addition, I possess more than five years of experience as a title examiner performing title abstract, title exam and title curative work. I hold a Florida real estate sales license and am qualified to test for Florida real estate broker.

My background and experience have afforded me the opportunity to build a strong list of professional contacts to include property owners, real estate brokers, developers, engineers, attorneys and municipal staff members.

I have prior experience working on multiple projects that were part of a larger portfolio of assets including four commercial projects totaling more than 240,000 square feet, nine multifamily projects totaling more than 2,900 units and two single family communities totaling more than 1,000 units.
