SVN | Saunders, a land and commercial real estate brokerage, has more than 60 real estate professionals in Florida and Georgia and a dozen marketing and administrative staffers. The company, which recently moved into a new headquarters building, has had more than $3.2 billion in transactions since Saunders founded the firm in 1996. As a state representative, he authored Florida’s first legislation to purchase conservation easements more than 25 years ago.

EDUCATION University of Florida (BSA)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I’m an eighth-generation Floridian and a real Florida history and genealogy buff. I’ve been researching my family history for several years. I found out I am part Native American, the Ottawa tribe. I was even able to locate and meet some of my family members recently.
NEW HOBBY Recently, I’ve also been collecting antique Florida maps.
ADMIRES I greatly admire Mark Wilson with the Florida Chamber because I know what the Chamber was 30 years ago and what it is now. He took the chamber from a fraternity of local chambers of commerce to an organization that sets an agenda for the entire state.
