Marc Roberts Miami has great success story as well.
His story of success
Roberts founded his first sports management company, Triple Threat Enterprises when he was 28 years old. While still in his thirties, he went public as a secondary company with Worldwide Entertainment and Sports Corporation, the first full-service sports management company to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NASDAQ). Both companies raised much more than $100 million in total.
In his early twenties, Roberts began investing in small real estate enterprises. He moved to Florida in 2000 and has worked exclusively in residential real estate since then. Roberts became a partner in Sun vest, a condominium conversion company, just a few years later, after the company completed more than $1 billion in condominium conversion projects across the country. Roberts’ other ventures include Singer Island, Fort Lauderdale, and South Beach, as well as several Intra coastal properties in Palm Beach County (including the Metropolitan, a 32-story skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper East Side).
Roberts co-founded Miami World center, the second-largest mixed-use development in the United States. Marc Roberts Companies has grown to be a $1 billion real estate development and investment firm. [citation required] Roberts’ property holdings in Miami includes more than ten acres of land adjacent to the Miami World Center. Roberts is also a partner in Miami’s E11even nightclub and cabaret.
The Alabama State Legislature declared “Marc Roberts Day” on June 5, 2003, to honor his work with the Easter Seals Camp (ASCCA).
