Davis Brooks

I’m an experienced real estate investor for 20+ years and a licensed Florida realtor. I put my first rental property in service in 1985 and went full time as an investor in 1998. I earned my real estate license on 2015.

Most of my real estate clients love the blend of investor & retail experience that I bring. I work with a lot of investors and off-market properties, but I have a significant retail business as well. My investor business includes:

  • Multifamily
  • Fix and flip
  • Buy and hold
  • VRBO and AirBnB short term rentals
  • Sandwich leases
  • Commercial properties in and beyond Florida

My retail business is about 2/3 sellers and 1/3 buyers in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, and Manatee counties.

I am much more than what people think of as a typical real estate agent — I actually know and understand real estate and I get investor strategies. I have experience with:

  • IRA deals
  • 1031 exchanges
  • Sandwich leases
  • Assignments
  • Probate
  • Short sales
  • REO
  • Private lenders
  • Hard money
  • Seller financing
  • Joint ventures
  • Short term rental management
  • Mentoring new investors and agents
  • Creative real estate transactions

People come to me because they know I have the expertise to help them with an atypical situation, or if they are looking for someone with lots of experience. I also manage long term and short term residential rental units for absentee owners including the:

  • Advertising
  • Lease execution
  • Rent collection and deposit
  • Make-ready between tenants
  • Repairs to units

I have added training and certification in Resort and Second Properties (RSPS), Seniors (SRES), Short Sales and Foreclosures (SFR), and International Property (CIPS). I also have the Green REsource and At Home with Diversity certifications. I am a member of the National Association of Gay and Lesbian RE Professionals (NAGLREP) and the Asian American RE Association (AAREA).
