BIO: www.DanielParkman.wordpress.com/about/

I have 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

teams have joint ventured exit strategies with some of the Country’s largest

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

Financial Institutions. Our associates/staff have auctioned in excess of

U.S. $12 Billion in Ultra luxury realty & assets in the Western Hemisphere

from the Caribbean to Hawaii and from Mexico 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 an4/10/2009Friday, April 10, 2009d 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 associates/staff  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, I co-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 with

20% down non-refundable deposits, with NO contingencies, close a week

prior to auction and if the buyer(s) do not close then we simply retain their

deposit as liquidated damages and auction the asset(s) anyway (and I have

never had a 20% non-refundable deposit walked away from a pre-auction

Manalapan is one of the most exclusive zip codes in all of America.

The subject land tract was adjacent to the La Coquille project that

has become the Palm Beach Ritz Carlton (following mention in

this letter of introduction). However, Karl ultimately sold this asset to

Frank McKinney, the Maverick of Ultra Luxury in Palm Beach

www.frank-mckinney.com . Frank has completed the Acqua Liana

$29 Million Spec Manse a slice of this land. For the balance of land

McKinney has multiple plans for a $135 Million dollar manse to enjoy

520 linear feet of Atlantic Oceanfront including 5.5 acres. I had

consulted with McKinney’s associate, Clark French, regarding our

various Ultra Luxury Platforms for Frank’s Boca specs.

  • Aubrey Horsford, Chief of Staff with Mel & Bre Simon

The Commodore Vanderbilt’s Estate @ 1100 S. Ocean Blvd,

the manse for $5M. Mel later sold the manse to William Randolph

Hearst, III for $35M. Aubrey was a gentleman from Grenada and was

seeking help for his personal purchase of a home in WPB,FL. He

soon found himself in a lawsuit for “block busting/discrimination”.

So his attorney retained my services @ DeBartolo Financial to fund

Aubrey’s mortgage which we gladly did. In the following “Palm

Beach Roots” you shall find further mention of my family

associations with the Ritz/Simon Family.

  • Dolly Lenz, America’s #1 Luxury Realtor with U.S. $7 Billion in

Personal Sales Volume Credited to her annually, the

Hamptons & Manhattan  www.DollyLenz.com

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 and your associates

as a result of my consulting with several owners in the Hamptons

properties from $4M – $20M+ regarding our 60 day cycle for maximizing

revenue streams & exit strategy platforms. A few of these platforms allows

one to move and act with out being seen or heard. Extremely discreet

platforms are available in the event this is a consideration thru our sealed

bid approach.


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

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

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

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

www.gedneyhowelaw.com and Helen Geer, a Christie’s Great Estates

the “Biltmore of Charleston” the largest private residence in Charleston,

South Carolina USA. Ironically, the buyer wished to keep remain

anonymous, however, he was also a prominent lawyer from Washington,

D.C. and our associates/staff had previously auctioned HIS National

Historic Landmark the “ Berry Hill Plantation” in VA. Thus, he was in our

proprietary database and was of course notified of our auction event. So,

one of our past sellers becomes one of our present buyers ! Surprisingly

enough, this actually happens frequently.  Further, as one can see

DISCETION is easily administered / observed.

A&E’s American Castles, HGTV Fantasy Open House, ABC’s The View,

CNN, Associated Press, Bloomberg News, Architectural Digest, Wall Street

Journal and Robb Reports 21 Gifts for the 21st Century. Also the TV mini-

series North & South starring Elizabeth Taylor, Kirsti Alley, Patrick Swayze,

Hal Holbrook, Lloyd Bridges, Gene Kelly, Robert Mitchum and Johnny



John C. Calhoun was Vice President under both Presidents John Quincy

Adams & Andrew Jackson. Patrick Calhoun lived in New York, Atlanta,

Cleveland, Charleston, and San Francisco. He owned 50,000 acres in

Continent, launched in August 2005 with TAC Investor/Partner, former U.N.
