Hi! I’m Jennifer Suder. I have been a property manager for over 15 years. I started my career at age 25, in Canton, Ohio as an assistant property manager, for broker, Tom Funk, at Diversified Realty Services. There I assisted Tom in managing residential, medical and retail properties. I have to say, Tom gave me my start and had been my mentor and good friend ever since.
After marrying my husband in 2001, we moved to start a new life in Florida. We originally moved to West Palm Beach were I took a job as an assistant property manager for Parkland Management, for a real estate attorney. After working as an assistant for a year, I became property manager of 95 residential units that consisted of multiple buildings and duplexes downtown West Palm Beach.
In 2003, an opportunity was offered to me to work as a commercial property manager and assistant controller for a real estate development company in Wellington, Florida. (a suburb of West Palm) While at Shapiro-Pertnoy Companies I was the property manager for the Shoppes at Chancellor and Chancellor Corporate Center, among others, and was responsible for over 96,000 sf of class A & B office space. SPC also built high-end homes in Admirals Cove, a very exclusive development where stars like Celine Dion have built their Florida home. Along with property management & leasing, I assisted the controller with construction accounting (AR & AP), the property management accounting, and over 9 million dollars in mortgages loaned by S&P Capital Corporation, owned by SPC.
After my husband received a promotion to vice president of his company in 2006, we moved to Lehigh Acres.
After brief employment with Pelican Bay Development managing and leasing Publix shopping centers, and out-parcel tenants such as CVS, Wachovia & Colonial Bank, I decided to get my Florida real estate license later that year. I worked at several smaller real estate companies in Lee county, trying to find a company that I could call home once again.
My last position, before starting my company was with ReMax in Lehigh Acres was bookkeeper and assistant property manager for a Realtor here in town. From my experience in Lee county, I found that Realtors were being property managers with absolutely no proper training or experience. So, I decided to get my brokers license and start my own property management company in February of 2011.
Dragonfly Properties & Investments, LLC now manages over 100 properties in Lee County and we are growing every day.
I thank you for taking the time to read about me and my experience and look forward to using my expertise in property management and real estate to assist you in making your investment a profitable one.
