Don Ginsburg serves as a Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at 13th Floor Investments. Mr. Ginsburg brings to the firm over 26 years of practical real estate experience in nearly all asset classes and submarkets of Florida. Mr. Ginsburg has purchased, sold, entitled, developed, brokered, and managed over $1.5 billion of real estate in his Florida focused career. His primary role at 13th Floor is the sourcing and underwriting of new acquisition opportunities.
Prior to joining 13th Floor, Mr. Ginsburg founded and served as President of Realty Masters Advisors (RMA) for ten years. Ginsburg’s impetus to create the company was to bring fresh entrepreneurial ideas to an unfulfilled niche of commercial brokerage. Having been on the buy-side for much of his career he sensed an opportunity to create a platform rooted in straight-forward advisory, strong analytics, and high-impact marketing. The formula proved successful as the firm enjoyed 100% year over year growth for several years, multiple years of $100,000,000+ sales volume, and has cumulative sales volume of over $500,000,000 during the past several years.
Prior to launching Realty Masters, Mr. Ginsburg worked with companies including Toll Brothers, Arvida, Engle Homes/Tousa, and private in-fill developers in Miami and Tampa. He is licensed with the State of Florida as both a Certified General Contractor and Real Estate Broker.
Mr. Ginsburg is very active in both the Greater Miami and Broward County Jewish Federations, where he currently co-chairs the Real Estate Network. He sits on the University of Florida’s Real Estate Advisory Board and is an active member of the Urban Land Institute.
