Legacy Business Brokers, LLC has been helping businesses successful manage business real estate property transactions since 2004. Our team of business brokers helps both business buyers and sellers meet their business goals throughout Florida. Because we are business and property owners ourselves, this gives us the perspective into the challenges faced by business buyers and sellers. We use this knowledge to help our clients make effective business decisions by helping them understand and navigate the process to find the best business match for their needs. Your confidentiality is assured throughout the entire process as we actively market your property and scout available businesses online and through other sales channels so that we can match the right buyer with the right seller.
I grew up in a small town about 12 miles southeast of Akron, Ohio. Akron used to be the rubber capital of the world, and also where the Cuyahoga River caught on fire in the late 60's. How’s that for a claim to fame? I had my fair share of cold weather and snow after graduating from Kent State University and I eventually moved to sunny South Florida. Fortunately, a few years later I met and married my beautiful wife Sheri, a nurse, who was originally from a small town in Michigan (she says Go Blue, Go Tigers). She earned a Master’s Degree in Nursing from Florida Southern College and works in Plant City for a Neurologist.
I have an MBA from Florida Atlantic University and a Masters in Accounting from Western Carolina University. I have been managing my own personal investment properties since 2000, and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make Real Estate my profession. I have volunteered as a teacher of a small group (Sunday School) and also taught Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Seminars to help others get control of and manage their finances at the Church at the Mall in Lakeland.
We have an Ohio “Buckeye” & a Michigan “Wolverine” in the same house . . . talk about a house divided! It’s an exciting time in our household when Ohio State University and the University of Michigan play. Go Buckeyes! We lived in Asheville, North Carolina for a few years and missed Florida so much we found our way back to the Sunshine State. We ended up in Lakeland because we thought it would be a great place to raise a family. We now have 3 active, handsome boys, a dog, and 2 cats. Our oldest and middle sons go to McKeel Academy of Technology and our youngest goes to Winston Academy of Technology. I am always the one elected to help with math homework. I’m a very dedicated dad and my family is the most important thing in my life.
We consider ourselves firmly transplanted in Florida. We have been in Florida more than half our lives and it is our HOME. We love it here! We love to go to the beach, barbecue at home, swim, spend time with family, and I am an exercise fanatic and have a green belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a dedicated professional. I am driven to do the best that I can do to help you, and I am passionate about helping you with your Real Estate needs. I believe it is very important to get to know you and what your needs are, so I can help you.
