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

 

Solutions”.

 

 

 

 

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

 

Appraisals.

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

Mitt Romney introduced me to Bill www.freestrongamerica.com . Norman

 

Groh of Norfolk, VA had, acquired the La Coquille Club from Robert Evans

of President of the United States

 

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

 

Resort in VA www.bryceresort.com , was then the manager of La Coquille

 

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
