After I left The Other Half (our “hippie” clothing store), I approached the five largest builders in Miami to learn about construction. The last builder, Cal Kovens, told me, “Show up on Monday. I’ll teach you.”
Show up on Monday. I'll teach you.

Under Cal's tutelage I gained valuable experience in the construction of luxury high-rises, hotels, and Publix shopping centers. I started by sweeping floors at the Cricket Club condominiums, then became assistant to a project manager. The first project I managed was the construction of a five-story hotel. The high-rises we built in the 1970s were innovative for the time—with circular balconies, high ceilings, glass walls, and amenities such as restaurants.

A few years later, I started work for a builder in South Miami, then moved on to a project in North Miami and, after that, joined a project building duplexes in Palm Beach County, just off Lake Worth Road, which sold for $16,500 a side.

My life took a different turn the day I drove through Wellington and realized the potential of that budding community. (I told this story earlier.)
I describe myself as “the interpreter” in the building process.
I describe myself as “the interpreter” in the building process. I interpret what the client is thinking, and convey it to the tradesperson. Or I interpret what the architect or interior designer is thinking, and translate that for the client.
As I grow older, less is becoming more as I strive to keep things simple. My passion is boating, especially in the Bahamas—I love the people there, the land, the water. And my favorite thing to do out on the boat is…nothing. I just stare out at the water and absorb the peace.
These days, I balance my work for Shapiro|Pertnoy with community work. I’ve learned that the more you give, the more you get back. For example, tonight I’m going to the Meyer Academy Annual Gala—a fundraiser for a school that our company does work for as a gift to the community. Then “Ronnie’s work day” will probably continue from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m.

Over the last 40 years I’ve built hundreds of homes. But more important to me than the homes are the relationships that grew as a result—they are priceless. I say to our employees frequently, “We are blessed to be in our clients’ lives, to have the opportunity to be in their homes. We are blessed when they pick up the phone to take our call.”
