Maury L Carter, Florida Trend, July 1991.

Listen as Maury Carter talks about working in real estate with J. Rolfe Davis and then starting his own company in this excerpt from an oral history interview with Mr. Carter on October 26, 2016 at Maury L. Carter & Associates, Inc.

LISTEN Part II (19:52)

I mentioned J. Rolfe Davis and while I was at Martin I got an offer by Rolfe Davis to go into, because I was part time real estate, and I got an offer by Rolfe Davis that was a lot more than I was making. I mean, I was making a good salary. I was in a management position which was a very good salary. But he made it even better and I thought it was time for a career change. So at age 39, Rolfe Davis made me an offer. And it's interesting there I had a chance to work with Baltimore and what happened up there - got down here and I had a chance to work with the man that made it all happen. I couldn't have a more exciting career. Got down here and got to work with the guy that made it happen on both ends.

But, a while after I was, after that I left Rolfe Davis and he was retirement age, he retired. That's when I started my own company... [Maury L. Carter & Associates, Inc.] He had commercial and residential that he was involved in. I've never worked residential. That's more on the retail end. What we do is we work on - when I started with him on land and land development and big projects, you know. We do not do half acre lots... But yeah, it was all Central Florida. But we do projects other places, too. We've been involved in Georgia, Texas, Virginia. But this is our home base here and 95% of it is in Central Florida, big Central Florida. We go down to south Florida some and some in Jacksonville, Tallahassee. But most, the biggest part of it, there's enough to do right here.
