It took him over 20 years to close the sale that earned Brad Parker two Hallmark Awards Wednesday, including "Deal of the Year" from the Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors.
"The Hills of Minneola was a blessing to me," the Chairman and CEO of Parker Consulting International told the CFCAR members about the $70.8 million sale of The Hills of Minneola to Sun Terra Communities.
"At its peak, at the height of the market, it was under contract for over $130 million," Parker said. "So you can kind of see where it went to from that point. I would say to anybody that the key to the game is being persistant and never giving up. You'll get deals just like that."
CBRE's Bill Moss took home the Lifetime Achievement Award for his 40-plus year career in commercial real estate. NAI Realvest's Paul Partyka chaired the award committee.
