Blake is a real estate professional who has been in and around the real estate industry most of his life. His family’s background in building and developing gave him an early start in the industry, which he entered at the age of 14 with a shovel in his hand. He put his degree in finance and portfolio management, as well as his MBA, to use operating a successful million-dollar financial services practice, managing clients’ personal net worth and helping high net worth individuals with real estate financing. This experience gave Blake a better understanding of the luxury housing market, how real estate works toward building a legacy and how a primary or secondary home can fit as an investment. He enjoys the challenges and details each real estate transaction presents. Blake resides in WaterSound Origins with his wife and two children. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with family and friends and all that Florida has to offer, including its beaches, fishing and golf.
