- My word and my handshake are as strong as my signature -
Taner was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey where he entered the Merchant Marine Academy at a young age and graduated as a Deck Officer/Third Mate. In 1992, he joined the Turkish Navy and served two years as a Navigation Officer. He continued his career at sea and was eventually promoted to Captain with a degree of Ocean Going Master. During one of his trips, he met his "soon to be wife" on the small island of Puerto Rico and decided to get married in 1998. After his son was born he decided to end his career at sea to spend more time with his family in Puerto Rico.
In 2002, Taner moved his family to Florida and opened a gold and diamond jewelry wholesaler business in South Florida which flourished and led him to high-end jewelry retail and a certification as a Bench Jeweler. Taner's success led him to an interest in real estate investing which then drove him to obtain his real estate license so that he could dedicate himself to help people invest wisely in real estate and help them find the best solution to fit their needs.
All the years spent around the world meeting different people from different cultures and the years spent with customers in the jewelry business have made him more sensitive and understanding about the special needs of the people he comes in contact with daily. Taner looks forward to working with you!
Professional goal: To be honest with everyone I come in contact with and to grow my business with integrity while earning the trust of my clients.
