Blake's Current Positions
Everybody has a story.
Blake was born and raised in Naples, Florida, and has always had his heart set on business & entrepreneurship.
From what he calls “The top selling” lemonade stands, to starting his first real business (A social media management company) at the age of 14, Blake was always looking for ways to get ahead.
Blake mentions, “While all my friends were enjoying high school & partying on the weekends, I was making the decision to better my business and was doing so all on my own.”
By the time Blake was 16, he had a full-time job in real estate, while still running his social media company, and building relationships with MANY successful business owners.
Fast-forwarding a few years later – He was locked & loaded out of high school with a ton of great relationships, a real estate license, and an extensive amount of business knowledge.
College wasn’t in the plans for Blake, but that didn’t stop him from hitting the ground running & competing with the top income earners for his age bracket. Blake went on to become one of the top selling real estate agents for his age & built a highly successful team.
“The knowledge and relationships led to huge opportunities for me… I’ve been able to buy & sell numerous businesses, build a national brand that has led to many speaking events, a large social media following, and bigger connections than I would’ve ever seen imaginable. Proving everyone that doubted me wrong was just a bonus”
Today, Blake is continuing to succeed in ways no one ever thought possible. He says the highlight of his career thus far has been joining forces with Accanito Capital Group.
“You spend every second of every day strategically planning how you are going to build huge relationships with big time people… One of those relationships notices your value & offers you a significant amount of equity into a new project with their multi-million-dollar company… It was at that moment that I realized all of the late nights & hard work had finally paid off, and I had something huge to show for it.”
Blake currently resides in Naples, Florida with his wife Kirsteen & enjoys traveling the world with her by his side. He thanks God every morning for the many blessings he’s been given & the relationships that he’s built.
Blake has gone above and beyond helping us find a home in Naples! He has even assisted us when looking for property out of state. I have and will continue to use Blake and recommend him to all my friends. If your looking for a honest and good realtor he is your guy!
