Frank got his professional start in real estate in 1996 with a job as a loan officer with Household Finance Corp. and moved around the mortgage industry up until 1999 as he decided to reenter college in 1998 to complete a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Economics and Finance at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) in Elizabeth City, NC. He played one season of college football at C.W. Post Campus/LIU, Rugby at Fordham University and three seasons of college baseball at Nassau Community College, ECSU and Benedict College in Columbia, SC. Frank is an honorably discharged member of the US Armed Forces with time spent in the US Marine Corps, US Navy Reserves and the US Army/National Guard.
Frank became a licensed real estate salesperson in Cambria Heights, NY in 2013 under famed residential Real Estate Broker of Cozy Homes Realty and legendary boxing promoter and manager, Dennis Rappaport. Frank quickly put enough deals together in the residential distressed market of south east Queens, NY and Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY to become a NYS Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker in 2016.
Upon entering the commercial real estate world with Berko & Associates in the fall of 2019, Frank within his first five months at Berko & Associates is already closing deals from relationships established and nurtured earlier in his real estate and business career. Frank has also been successful in raising capital for Berko & Associates’ equity capital arm, Astor Capital Realty through the friends and family ambassador program that lend investment capital to developers for ground up projects, bridges loans and mezzanine financing.
Outside of Berko & Associates, Frank recently purchased a web domain named, momsdads.org which, will be geared towards helping incoming high school students who desire to excel in academics and sports to develop and maintain a game plan to accomplish the latter mentioned at a high level and, especially for those students who may not be getting the greatest support and encouragement from their parents, siblings, other relatives, friends, neighbors and etc. for whatever reason. Frank feels it is at this stage in a young student athlete’s life where the greatest possibilities can be developed in these students to become future leaders on the world stage and/or locally at a high level.
