Experienced developer, real estate agency boss and entrepreneur Garrett Kenny, ‘knows Central Florida like the back of his hand’. Originally from Dublin, his $600million business began after he bought a holiday home in the Orlando area in the mid-90s.
Today, some 20 years later after being established, award-winning Feltrim Group offers a comprehensive range of construction, real estate, management and immigration services for buyers and investors from the United States and around the world, including a growing number from China.
What do you do best?
Running leading Central Florida real estate developer and agency, Feltrim Group, and advising about buying, selling and renting property in and around Orlando.
What makes you the best?
Determination not to give up regardless of what challenge you face - and I’ve faced many - means there is always a solution as long as you believe in what you are doing. You need to also go with your instincts, learn from lessons and naturally have a bit of luck. I also believe in being down-to-earth and providing top-quality service.
How will you stay the best?
Feltrim Group constantly strives to embrace new technologies and methods and evolve with the times and with so many international buyers, we adopt a multinational approach to Central Florida real estate and providing US-wide immigration services. I adopt a hands-on approach, which is why I personally attend so many real estate events around the world, showing clients around properties and attending seminars on the latest marketing techniques. We aim to lead our sales team to success by providing a work environment that builds confidence and camaraderie with the resources and tools each associate requires achieving their personal best”.
What are your aspirations?
Personal: To make my wife and children proud, as they put up with my 17-hour work days, and to live up to the legacy of my Mum and Dad, who never got to travel to Florida on vacation, and my sister, Levina, who passed away in 2009, aged 40.
Business: Feltrim Group’s mission is to be the premier full service real estate brokerage company in Florida by providing the highest quality service to buyers and sellers.
What fascinates you?
People - and the challenges of entrepreneurship and being able to think on your feet.
Three best to have in plenty – sunshine, wisdom, and generosity.
