Harvey Vengroff, a self-made multimillionaire who moved to Southwest Florida 23 years ago so he could go sailing every day, is sailing on — to Belize.

NAI Global (Sean Dreznin, Kyle Keelan, Phillip Paul Ginexi) & Keller Williams (Andrew Haddad) are proud to present... A portfolio of investments

NAI Tampa Bay (Sean Dreznin, Kyle Keelan, Phillip Paul Ginexi) & Keller Williams (Andrew Haddad) are proud to present… A portfolio of investments


Vengroff, the 72-year-old founder of one of the world’s largest collection agencies, plans to sell a $75 million Southwest Florida property portfolio that he amassed after arriving in 1990. He has hired NAI Tampa Bay and Sean Dreznin, Phil Ginexi & Kyle Keelan & Andrew Haddad of Keller Williams to sell the portfolio investments. He is also making it possible for his real estate employees to acquire another $20 million worth of apartments on favorable terms.

Since he got here, Vengroff has been a colorful character who prefers casual clothes, rails against government bureaucrats and tends to do things his own way.



Vengroff renamed the collection agency that is still in the family as Vengroff Williams Inc.

That company, which employs more than 100 in this region, maintains larger offices in Long Island, N.Y.; Chicago and Orange County, Calif., collecting on commercial delinquent accounts for a large number of clients, including General Electric Co., Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc.

“We are not moving anybody out of Sarasota,” Vengroff told the Herald-Tribune. “We are just going to add new people in Belize, that’s all.”

One of them will be Harvey Vengroff.

On a more personal level, Vengroff said he has been disappointed in the reception he has gotten from the City of Sarasota when he has asked for higher density rights on properties so that he could build rental apartments. Specifically, he has sought permission to build high-rise rental buildings at 2211 Fruitville Road, the close-in, 8-acre site now on the market for $8 million.

“If you want to build luxury condos you can get 200 per acre,” Vengroff said. “If you want to build affordable housing, you cannot get 50 per acre.”

Vengroff says he has empowered three agents to liquidate the roughly $75 million in real estate, most of it affordable housing.

These agents are Sean Dreznin, Kyle Keelan and Phil Ginexi from NAI Tampa Bay.

“I don’t think there was anybody who ever dedicated themselves more to affordable housing for the work force than Harvey,” said Kerry Kirschner, executive director of Argus Foundation, who in a former political life helped recruit Vengroff to Southwest Florida.

It appears the city and police are making a gentle push to move the growing hoard of bums that congregate outside Elaine Fischer’s store on North Lemon Ave, the downtown public library, five points, and throughout downtown, every evening.

HOMELESSNESS

THE PROBLEM IS REALThe perspective is different. I am confident that there are many voices who argue for compassion and support for the homeless. I understand this support for folks who are earnest in making positive strides, volunteering and putting in an effort to lift themselves up. From what I see every night while I work downtown, the homeless on the streets of Sarasota, are not the ones you would find on an infomercial with Sarah McGlaughlin music playing in the background.

* Open containers of alcohol
* Sprawled out on the sidewalk
* fights
* drunken and drugged out behavior
* verbal and physical hostility towards any authority
* begging and harassment of locals, tourists and patrons of downtown businesses
* unsanitary actions and behavior
* mental instability and unpredicatability
* constant loitering
* endangering themselves (this is exhibited mostly by drunken dancing out in the street
* Numbers have grown from 2 to 3 per night to 10 to 14 per night.
* Apparently (from a co-worker who bikes to work) the library had 30+ gathered outside. I’m sure this would be intimidating for anyone, especially a woman who is WORKING herself to the bone and being a productive, tax paying citizen.
