Empowered by a noticeable education and a remarkable career that spanned planning, design, construction, finance, marketing and sales of commercial real estate projects, Ed Melo is also a visionary.
In 1981, Ed recognized an important need in the Tampa Bay real estate market. The level of expertise required for new commercial real estate projects was not available locally from small companies, and local needs for complex projects had to be met by out-of town firms. With two related companies already formed, Ed blended Resource Capital Corp. and Resource Real Estate Corp. into The Resource Realty Group, Inc. Ė a full-service commercial and industrial real estate firm.
The merger facilitated Edís goal of filling the gap between the high of level of performance generally found in large out-of-town firms and the personalized services generally found in small local companies.
Ed began his successful career as an engineer with consulting engineering companies involved in master planning, building design, and highway planning. His affinity for construction led him to become project manager with design-build constructors, handling commercial an industrial projects within the State of Florida. His extensive contribution to local government gave him a keen understanding of local issues and provided lasting relationships in government.
This exceptional background enabled Ed to create one of the largest suburban and award-winning condominiums in Tampa Bay, to partake in well-structured condominium conversions both locally and out of town, to participate in other commercial projects, and to start the companies that were subsequently merged into the Resource Realty Group.
