Mark A. Maciel - Principal

Mr. Maciel is an entrepreneurial real estate developer experienced in financial modeling, property improvement, civil engineering and entitlements. 

Before moving to Florida Mr. Maciel was the owner and manager of several urban apartment buildings in Providence, Rhode Island.  It was this experience that gave him the knowledge and financial leverage to enter the development arena.  After holding multiple senior level corporate sales positions and following a one year military activation after the events of September 11, 2001, Mr. Maciel decided to take his real estate investment experience to a full time activity.  Being mentored by one of Orlando’s most successful land developers, he started New Providence Properties, LLC and M. Maciel and Associates, LLC under which he acquired, entitled and developed several successful residential and commercial projects.  Having developed strong municipal relationships and streamlined programs for the development process, Mr. Maciel is often called upon by other real estate professionals to assess their projects and has been quoted in several Orlando area business journals. Formally a 6 year member of the Winter Garden Planning and Zoning Board, he currently sits on the Winter Garden City Commission.
