Daniel M. Parkman, Sr. has sold 1,389 properties in a single day with Coldwell Banker at auction


with Judy Rae & Stephen L. Miller, then owners of the CB franchise in Lake


Placid, Florida http://heathrowrealty.com/judy_miller_bio.htm. Our


team has joint ventured exit strategies with some of the Country’s largest


Builders, Developers, Brokers, Receivers, Trustees, Executors, and


Financial Institutions. Our staff has auctioned in excess of $7.5 Billion in


Ultra luxury realty & assets Internationally from the Caribbean to Mexico to


Hawaii to Canada. This includes in excess of a million acres of land, the


25,000 acre LaJitas Resort http://www.lajitas.com/history.html (see the


second to last sentence), golf, ocean front, ranches, 45,000 sq.ft.


warehouse, office buildings, commercial, 7,000 luxury condos and the


largest manse in Charleston, SC, The Calhoun Mansion (sold 2 weeks prior


to our auction) www.calhounmansion.net , with over 24,000 square feet


owned by Gedney Howe, III who is admitted to practice law before the


Supreme Court of the United States www.gedneyhowelaw.com . I have


been entrenched in International real estate for over 30 years and have


worn several top hats. Therefore, I have significant resources at my


disposal in the world of realty and finance depending upon your needs &


requirements. Put another way: “World Class Assets – World Class







Our staff members were the first in the World to conduct a Luxury Real


Estate Auction over the Internet in 1995 for a $2M Oceanfront Manse in


Rehoboth Beach, DE www.rehoboth.com .  I have co-pioneered the


simultaneous auctioning of Multiple Projects/Portfolios/Assets owned by


Multiple Individuals/Entities/Developers/Institutions. This has been


achieved by leveraging the economies of scale and offering simultaneously


from 2-3-4-5-6 or 7 + Projects/Portfolios under a single/same day auction


event’s umbrella. Thus, casting a substantially wider net by attracting


across the Western Hemisphere and Globally interested parties to our


Extravaganza Events. This in turn maximizes the interest level from afar


and commands the peak response thus enhancing the revenue streams for


the subject portfolios assets @ auction. In addition, we pioneered the pre-


auction sales program wherein, we have sold out 12% – 55% – 85% – 100%


of the entire Portfolios/Projects/Assets inventories prior to auction day.

Associates in North Haven & Blogger of the Hamptons Real Estate Blog


 are business associates of mine. We also arranged mezzanine funding for


a $4M Mixed use commercial real estate enterprise in the Hamptons. I am


summering in the Hamptons and wintering in Palm Beach. I wanted to


reach out to you as a result of my consulting with several owners in the


Hamptons properties from $4M – $20M+ regarding our maximizing revenue


streams & exit strategy platforms.




Our experience is that the vulture/investor/bulk/wholesale buyers represent


the floor or minimum price per unit. They usually open the bidding and are


ultimately outbid by end users. A portfolio/asset/pie/project will sell for less


bulk at wholesale than in pieces/slices retail direct to the public at auction.


Prices generally range from 70% – 120% +/- depending upon the


market/economy. We just sold special assets properties for Regions Bank


www.regions.com in Henry Ford’s Plantation (Founder of  The Ford Motor


Company) http://www.fordplantation.com/Content/611.htm  , in Savannah,


GA & Pensacola Beach, Florida @ auction for 84% of Region Bank’s own

P.S. : Palm Beach Roots





Palm Beach Roots





My family, the Parkmans, Thompson & Just, have held key leadership


rolls with the Weitz Company since 1972 in Des Moines, IA & West Palm


Beach, FL. More recently, Larry Thompson, as Weitz’s lead Super set what I


understand is a 154 year record for the largest singular contract for the


$350M Scripps Research Institute Project, Palm Beach Gardens, FL


http://www.scripps.edu/intro/glance/ .  In 1974 I first sat foot on Florida real


estate on vacation. Then in 1981 I returned to cut my teeth with the Weitz


Co. in 1981 under the tootaledge of Ben Sorenson, Ivan Van Roekel, John


Rodeman, Bob Demers, Jack Duran & Gary Swanson as the Chief Land


Surveyor @ the $80M Abbey Delray South project, Delray Beach, FL (of the

prior to PBIA’s grand opening in 1997 +/-. Bill & I are both LDS (Mormons

George Romney, was also a Chairman of The American Motors Company,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_W._Romney ). (La Coquille was


originally founded by Spelman Prentice, a grandson of John D. Rockefeller,


Sr. in 1954). A biz assoc & friend of mine, Pete Bryce of the Bryce Mountain

and used to throw a junior Senator from Massachusetts in his Cadillac and


take him to the Kennedy Compound – JFK; Then the Massachusetts


Governor was Gov. Endicott (Chub) Peabody who’s Mother was Mary


Parkman Peabody).  Norman had approached me, while I was the AVP of


Anthony DeBartolo’s – DeBartolo Financial Services


www.debartoloholdings.com , to fund the ADC mini perm funding for the La


Coquille tear down. Norm was thin on resume and financial statement and


ultimately flipped it to Mel Simon www.simon.com . Mel Joint Ventured with


Shimizu and the Ritz went under construction. Mel hired The Weitz


Company (America’s Top 25 GC) to build the Ritz Carlton. My Father,


Richard D. Parkman, was the Quality Control Superintendent for the $100M


project as well as the Plaza del Mar luxury retail/commercial project directly


across A-1-A from the Ritz. I was an Asst. Super @ the Plaza del Mar
