Greetings and welcome to my blog. This is a lot of fun, and I’m excited now to have keyboard (and spell check) in hand. Please also note the Twitter Tweets and Facebook Likes in the column to the right. You can elect to receive RSS feeds or simply email notifications for an easier follow.
My name is Steve McAuliffe, currently living along the beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida waterfront. I am a licensed Florida Real Estate Broker. A huge fan of the Tampa Bay Rays who enjoys music, gourmet cooking, sushi, reading (self-educating), water polo and good friends.
My industry leadership extends to expanding roles in a variety of national and regional industry groups, including serving on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the Tampa Bay Builders Association (past-president). Also, a past Trustee of the NAHB’s Sales and Marketing Council as well as its Institute of Residential Marketing, and past Chairman of the FHBA Sales and Marketing Council.
In 2003, I was awarded the FHBA’s prestigious John P. Hall Award for Sales and Marketing Excellence, and in 1998, the Regional Marketing Director of the Year by the NAHB. And, have earned the respected NAHB designations of Member Institute of Residential Marketing (MIRM) and Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP). I hold a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Principia College in Elsah, IL where I was an All Conference and All American Water Polo player.
Recently, I was charged with the sales and marketing for the remaining foreclosed 137 inventory homes at downtown Tampa’s Towers of Channelside. We sold all homes (under budget) in just over a year’s time to the tune of $45 million, making the Receiver, Bank Syndication and Hedge Fund very happy.
This brings us to the present. I am very pleased to be both a partner and the broker for a boutique real estate brokerage here in downtown St. Petersburg… ForeSite Residential Real Estate.
I’m also a partner/owner of a boutique Title Company in downtown St. Petersburg, providing comprehensive title insurance and escrow services… Title Security.
Additionally, I’m proud to have just completed and sold two beautiful 2-story Craftsman-style homes in NE St Petersburg with my two partners… We are ‘BURG Development, and have 3 other homes and a renovation under construction.
