I started in the industry in 2002 as a Service Manager for Bayport Yachts in Newport Beach, CA who were the Carver, Marquis, and Regal Yachts Dealer for Southern California at the time. In 2003, I became a Broker and was the Salesperson of the Year for the company. Since that start, I've continued to grow and expand within our industry, first as the Sales Manager for the (at the time) largest Cruisers Yachts and Regal Yachts Dealer in the USA, then as the Country Manager for the Azimut | Benetti Group in Qatar, then again for them in Thailand. I also spent 3 years with MarineMax in Florida representing a wide variety of brands. I've watched the industry change and grow over the years, and in 2016 decided I wanted to do things a bit differently than everybody else, so I started Norwood & Skiff Yacht Sales, LLC. I have three rules for brokers wanting to join the company: 1. Don't be a Dick. Pretty self-explanatory. 2. Don't Lie. Again, not really hard to understand. 3. Don't represent Buyers that want to buy Zeus pod boats built prior to 2015. If you've been a boater long enough, you'll know why I have this rule in place. I offer an authentic, supportive working environment that is based on mutual respect for one and other as professionals in our field, and always have time to help my peers get a deal across the finish line. Since starting N&S, we've grown and become the Century, Coronado, and Release Boats Dealers for our SWFL market and have brokers across Florida, and in Mississippi, New York, and California.
