Parallel worlds ultimately mesh.
Back in seventh grade, middle school friends Mark Jordan and Peter Kieffer had their priorities straight – sports, food and fun – and not always in that order. Creating a highly successful design/build partnership was the furthest thing from their minds as they raced bikes through all the South Tampa neighborhoods. Their parallel worlds progressed through Plant High School and on to North Carolina State for Mark, and Tulane and Florida State for Peter.
Graduating as a civil engineer, Mark worked for many years with Mizner Marine as a project engineer, then moved to sales for a commercial construction accessories firm. That change also brought a general contractor’s license.
After a few seasons of athletic scholarship football at Tulane, Peter transferred to Florida State to earn his business degree. In the following years Peter crisscrossed the country managing a variety of sales and operations divisions for major telecommunications companies.
Their personal worlds fully intersected when Mark married Peter’s sister. The brothers-in-law were now raising their families in the same neighborhoods
they played in as kids.
The professional side of life changed when Mark and Peter collaborated on an idea: build an exceptional home of superior quality, pay attention to every detail, fill it with the best amenities, do it on time and under budget and the public will want it. Mark and Peter did just that and the home sold right away. They did it again and that one sold too…welcome to Sunset Properties of Tampa Bay.
Many years and many homes later, Sunset Properties’ solid reputation has allowed them to expand their design/build core to include additions and remodeling.
When not tending to business you’ll find both partners enjoying their families and their array of activities. Mark will have a fishing pole nearby and Peter will don his little league coach’s hat. You might even catch them riding bikes through the neighborhood again.
