Licensed Real Estate Broker

I am currently the owner of two real estate companies in Florida. Homes Plus Realty, llc/Real Estate Auctions a Realtor company. The second company (Bob Calistri, llc) is a company that's purpose is to start real estate companies for people who would like to own one. I have been in the real estate business full time for many years with my main focus on commercial properties, residential sales and property management. In 2004 I saw that there would be an upcoming increased market in real estate and became a full time Realtor. With a Brokers license in 2006 I was able to conduct auctions of distressed properties as the real estate market took a down turn. My companies are located in the Tampa/St Pete area and have over 10 agents. My main interest is establishing new real estate companies in Florida for people who wish to own a real estate but do not have a Qualifying Broker's License. I am currently the Broker for over 10 real estate companies throughout Florida and a member of at least 6 Realtor Associations. In the past 6 years I helped almost 70 people start a real estate company in various locations throughout Florida.


MY BACKGROUND

Madison I Condo Association

I joined the Board of Directors in Jan. 2008 and became President in Jan 2009 and remained as President for 5 years. Since my election as President the association has reduced expenses by almost 15% and reduced the association condo fees by the same amount. I was able to accomplish this through completive bidding of all contracts and by closely monitoring all expenses.  In Oct. 2010, I settled a lawsuit against the developer of the condo and we received a settlement amount of $400,000 for the association.
