Cozza Investment Group Expands to South Florida Market

Cozza Realty Group Inc., managed by Cozza Investment Group, launched into the South Florida market with various projects to expand its presence along both of Florida’s coasts. The Fort Myers-based company features 20 bilingual and diverse agents who specialize in luxury homes throughout the Miami metro area including downtown, Brickell, Wynwood, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. It also plans to expand to Palm Beach soon.

“As one of the fastest growing markets in Florida, and highly sought after internationally, Miami

 is a region we have been targeting as a key component of our expansion strategy,” Brad Cozza says, owner of Cozza Investment Group. “CIG brings an incredibly talented group of agents to grow with us as the leading luxury brokerage along both coasts of Florida. Backed by our industry-leading resources, I am confident they will continue to outperform in the Florida market.”

Since Cozza established CIG in 2004, the company has generated $10 billion in sales. CIG also partners with general contractors and interior designers and offers clients a price point strategic home renovation service designed to maximize the sale price of their home.

“We sold between 3,000 and 4,000 single-family homes and pre-construction, over a few-year period. Our firm was ranked No. 10 in the nation by the Wall Street Journal for volume produced nationwide,” he says.

During the mortgage crisis around 2007, Southwest Florida became the No. 1 foreclosure market in the country. Cozza says he was fortunate to quickly adapt and reorganize his business model to take advantage of foreclosure deals. During that period, he acquired and sold more than 4,000 properties across the state. With the use of this bulk acquisition model, Cozza amassed a vast network of investors, which helped him gain a reputation to approach developers and sell the first 20 units of new residential projects. Cozza’s aims to provide his clients with a “Ritz-Carlton” style service featuring a warm and sincere greeting of the client’s name with champagne, caviar and local shellfish bites.

“Brad and his team at The Cozza Investment Group have been wonderful to work with,” Alicia E. Cervera says, Principal of Cervera Real Estate. The volume of clientele he has brought into our pre-construction projects has been amazing,”

Cozza also offers education and mentoring to his agents who are vetted and trained to learn specific vocabulary and how to talk on the phone. All the agents will be trained based on Cozza’s experience managing the ebbs and flow of the real estate market.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
