had honey mooned in Hawaii and later purchased the ranch where he

spent much of his time while in Hawaii. The ranch includes Macadamia

Japanese Sugi Pines and 100-foot Loulu Palms.

What are the odds that I’d be riding a Harley Davidson and Lincoln Town Car for 11 days in the main island of Hawaii before Christmas when the world plays my favorite movie, Jimmy Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” while auctioning his Ho Omau Ranch in Kona ? For good measure I bought a copy of his movie with me @ the resort hotel.

In the past 12 months, the developer had given only 192 tours. With the success of selling condos via the auction process, there is no logical reason for developers to hold on to excess inventory.”

wintering in Palm Beach. I wanted to reach out to you as a result of my
consulting with several owners in the Hamptons properties from $4M –
$20M+ regarding our maximizing revenue streams & exit strategy
Our experience is that the vulture/investor/bulk/wholesale buyers represent
the floor or minimum price per unit. They usually open the bidding and are
ultimately outbid by end users. A portfolio/asset/pie/project will sell for less
bulk at wholesale than in pieces/slices retail direct to the public at auction.
Prices generally range from 70% – 120% +/- depending upon the
market/economy. The past 3 luxury project loans that we have paid off with Regions Bank has resulted in an over all average of 100% of Regions Banks’s construction loan balance(s), list price(s) or appraised value(s).

My family, the Parkmans & Thompsons, have held key leadership rolls with the Weitz Company since 1972 in Des Moines, IA & WPB,FL. More recently, Larry Thompson, as Weitz’s lead Super set what I understand is a 153 year record for the largest singular contract for the $160M Scripps Research Institute Project PBG,FL . I cut my teeth with the Weitz Co. in 1981 under the tootaledge of Ben Sorenson, Ivan van Roekel, John Rodeman, Bob Demers, Jack Duran & Gary Swanson as the Chief Land Surveyor @ the $80M Abbey Delray South project, Delray Beach , FL. The Vulcan Co was a subsidiary that Weitz had established in S FL.

In addition, find attached a History of the Ritz Carlton of Palm Beach . The Ritz franchise is owned by the Marriott Umbrella. I meet Bill Marriott, Jr. when he was in Palm Beach, FL to bid on the Palm Beach International Airport’s concessions prior to PBI’s grand opening in 1997 +/-. Bill, Mitt, Rod & I are all LDS (Mormons) as well. . Roderick Davies, who is brother-in-law to Governor Mitt Romney introduced me to Bill .

Norman Groh of Cherry Hills, NJ had, acquired the La Coquille Club from Robert (Bob) Evans Chairman of The American Motors Corporation ( Mitt Romney’s Father George Romney was also a Chairman of The American Motors Company, Governor of Michigan, US. Secretary of HUD and a candidate for the Office of President of the United States ). (La Coquille was originally founded by Spelman Prentice, a grandson of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. in 1954). A biz assoc & friend of mine, Pete Bryce of the Bryce Mountain Resort in VA , was then the manager of La Coquille and used to place a junior Senator from Massachusetts in his Cadillac and take him to the Kennedy Compound – JFK; Then the Massachusetts Governor was Gov. Endicott (Chub) Peabody who’s Mother was Mary Parkman Peabody). Norman had approached me, while I was the AVP of DeBartolo Financial Services , to fund the ADC mini perm funding for the La Coquille tear down. Norm was thin on resume and financial statement and ultimately flipped it to Mel Simon . Mel Joint Ventured with Shimizu and the Ritz went under construction. Mel hired The Weitz Company (America’s Top 25 GC) to build the Ritz Carlton. My Father, Richard D. Parkman, was the Superintendent for the $100M project as well as the Plaza del Mar luxury luxury retail/commercial project directly across A-1-A from the Ritz. I was an Asst.
