Hi. I’m Dan Colachicco and here is a little bit of information about me:
I have been involved in the commercial real estate industry since 1979. As a Licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of Florida, I have represented clients in the acquisition, disposition, lease up, development, management, financing and syndication of commercial properties both locally and nationally.
In 2011 I founded Dawn Technologies, Inc., an internet training and productivity tool provider for the commercial real estate industry. As CEO and Content Director, I have designed a dynamic, interactive training system that teaches commercial real estate agents to grow the skills necessary to enjoy long term success in the industry. It is called Smart CRE Broker Academy and agents who complete the entire curriculum can earn the Accredited Commercial Brokerage Advisor (ACBA) designation.
In addition, I have developed a proprietary software program that allows commercial real estate agents to produce high quality, branded new listing proposals and marketing packages.
From 1991 through 1999, I was the National Site Selector for Interoffice, Inc. a global Executive Suite company, where we expanded the company’s office portfolio from 9 locations to 41 locations in every major market in the U.S. I also helped create the InterOffice Affiliate Program, where I owned and operated 4 executive suite centers in secondary and tertiary markets.
I have also been involved in the development of over 250,000 square feet of office, retail and industrial properties in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, Florida through my own development and management company. I handled all aspects of the process from site acquisition, municipal approvals and entitlement procurement, design, development and marketing.
In 2004, I joined Marcus & Millichap as a seasoned professional with a focus on Office and Industrial property sales. By 2006, I was recognized as the top Office and Industrial agent in the Orlando Office and in 2007 I retained that distinction as well as being recognized as a Top 3 Agent overall. The Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors awarded me with a Hallmark Award as one of the Top 10 Investment Professionals in Central Florida in 2007. During my time as an Investment Sales Associate at Marcus & Millichap, I also mentored and managed a team of 5 junior agents who eventually transitioned into their own individual brokerage practices. In 2008 and 2009, I was asked to take over the management of the Orlando Office as Regional Manager. In that capacity, I recruited, developed, trained and managed a sales force of 25 – 30 commercial real estate professionals. In 2009 & 2010, I was appointed to the National New Agent Training Team and was responsible for training hundreds of new agents for the company on a national basis.
In late 2010, I left Marcus & Millichap to join forces with NAI Realvest, part of the NAI Global Network with more than 350 offices worldwide. There, I earned membership into the elite NAI Global Investment Services Group, specializing in investment property sales. I also served as the firm’s Director of New Agent Training & Development. In that capacity, I designed and implemented a rigorous 10 week structured training program for new associates.
I have been married to the most wonderful woman in the world for 31 years and I have two sons whom I am infinitely proud of. I love traveling, especially to Italy.
