I’m one of the relatively few people you’ll meet who can say they were born and raised right here in the Daytona Beach area.
Growing up I attended Warner Christian Academy, Horizon Elementary, Campbell Middle, and Spruce Creek High School.
After four years away playing NCAA Division II college tennis at Wingate University (near Charlotte, NC), I returned home to begin my real estate career working alongside my mother, Marty Erisman, at the brokerage she founded and ran for 30 years, First Class Properties.
A licensed broker since 2000, I have spent years working in both the resale and new home sales markets, but what differentiates me from other agents is the decade I have spent educating baby boomers about retirement in Florida.
Florida for Boomers
I am the author of Florida for Boomers, and through the book’s companion website I have helped more than one million baby boomers learn about everything Florida has to offer.
My loyal readers took to calling me “Mr. Florida” a few years ago, and the nickname has stuck.
I’ve even picked up a couple cool testimonials like this one:
I also help real estate developers reach prospective home buyers, and my website generates more than 10,000 leads per year for a number of Florida communities geared toward active adults.
I am also the author of Inside the Bubble: Unauthorized Guide to Florida’s Most Popular Community.
What started as a modest mobile home park back in the 1970’s, The Villages in Central Florida has become home to more than 100,000 retirees from all over the world.
The Villages has been the best-selling master-planned community in the country for several years running, and through my book and website I have helped tens of thousands decide if it is the right place for them to retire.
At Home in Daytona Beach Shores
Though I love and write about all parts of Florida, my heart belongs to my hometown, the Greater Daytona Beach area.
I live with my family in Daytona Beach Shores, and I work out of the RE/MAX Signature office less than a mile away from my home.
Working with both buyers and sellers, I enjoy introducing people to everything that life in this area has to offer.
