We formed our investment group in 2000 specifically to take advantage of real estate investment opportunities in the Southern New Jersey marketplace. Not only was our initial foray as a group with David Waronker, but so was our second investment. During our three year relationship, David’s communication with us has been thorough and forthright. He has always made himself readily available and has been quick to respond to any inquiry we may have. As a result we believe that we have forged a life long commitment to participate with David and his vision. In that vein we have expanded our initial investment plan to include ventures with David in Florida and nationally via USALANDSALE.COM. We couldn’t be more pleased with not only the financial rewards of our relationship, but also with the personal bonds that we have built with no finer gentleman and upstanding community stalwart than David Waronker.

I met Mr. Waronker approximately 6 years ago in Zephyrhills, Florida . He rightfully took an aggressive approach to purchasing properties in Pasco County. He was the forerunner of what has turned out to be a very vibrant market at the present time. He has purchased many parcels from me in that time frame, of which have since been marketed to various developers. Having been in this market place for over 30 years, I was unsure that Mr. Waronker’s approach would be rewarding, but he obviously was right on the mark!

William F. Nye, CRS, CIM Century 21 Bill Nye Realty, Inc.

I have worked with David Waronker and CBD Investments for over 15 years in multiple development deals as equity partner and as a debt lender. I continue to invest in CBD deals as I find David finds smart projects, produces superior returns and is a true professional in his space.

It has been a pleasure working with David Waronker and CBD Real Estate Investment on several multi-family real estate transactions in the Pasco County, Florida area.  David Waronker has followed up on the land acquisition process from the negotiation stage to closing with the Sellers, working with engineers and when necessary being accessible for meetings with government agencies for annexations, rezonings and site plan reviews.

I have known Mr. Waronker going on 15 years dealing in Pasco County, specifically the surrounding Zephyrhills area.  I have been involved in multiple properties of which Mr. Waronker and his group have performed on successfully.  He had the foresight to be one of the first to “jump” on this market when others did not foresee the potential of our growth.  I could verify, when he has analyzed a potential growth opportunity, it has proved to be a great move!

I  have known and invested with David for 9 years. He has been a good partner as a real estate investor.  He is knowledgeable, well experienced and enjoys a good reputation among his colleagues and investors. Even, during the worst of times,   David was able to work our collective way through the market seeking various opportunities and overcoming challenges.  Moreover, he has a wonderful family and together they offer comfort to horses with Second Chance Ranch, Inc. to live out their lives. It’s this kind of compassion for life and to know he has done the right thing that defines David amongst those who know him and is expressed in his business dealings.  Good for David and family.

Last year, we facilitated a deal for CDB Real Estate to zone, entitle, and ultimately purchase 12 acres of multi-family property the Diocese owned in Zephyrhills, Florida. I have made my living in the real estate and land development in industry in Central Florida for thirty one years, and I have never had a deal that went smoother, or was a more enjoyable ride than our transaction with David and CBD Real Estate Investors. I hope for the opportunity to do more in the future. David is most scrupulous about ethical issues and he showed himself throughout the process to be the true gentleman that he is.
