Ardizon was instrumental in structuring Miami’s first large-scale opportunity zone, Soleste Grand Central, a $100+ million deal, which will deliver a 360-unit Class A multifamily project to Downtown Miami.
With nearly 10 years of experience specializing in new construction for the nation's largest home builder, Lennar homes, Garcia brings in-depth knowledge involving all facets of real estate development, including marketing, financing, sales and the construction process, to the Council. Throughout his career, Garcia has assisted local and international buyers throughout Latin America on investing in the Miami market. He is a third-generation real estate professional and received a Master of International Real Estate degree from FIU’s Chapman Graduate School of Business.
The Hollo School of Real Estate Council and Advisory Board offer guidance on the school’s curriculum, connects students with internship and job opportunities to help advance their careers, and assists in broadening the number of companies that recruit Hollo School of Real Estate graduates.
