Alan worked as a licensed Florida Building Contractor developing many homes from Palm Beach to Palm Bay.Alan Palange was born and raised just outside of Manhattan and moved to Long Island as a young boy. Alan’s family then moved to Miami Florida in 1972. Shortly thereafter Alan attended military school in Texas for two years and started college when he was 16 years old. After coming from New York and living in Miami Alan was extremely hesitant on the trip to Texas, but as circumstances would have it, it turned into a fabulous five years of his life.At age 20 Alan moved back to Miami where he resided for another few years. In 1988 Alan then moved to Fort Lauderdale Florida where he set up his first new business at the ripe age of 24 years old. Alan maintained the business for a number of years until one fateful day he got involved in real estate. After flipping his first house in the early 1990s Alan quickly sold his existing business and made real estate is number one priority.For number of years Alan enjoyed buying and selling real estate. In 1999 Alan then took a semi-retirement and moved to Hawaii after selling all of his remaining assets in Florida.For two years Alan resided in Hawaii where he met his first wife. Alan was very intrigued with Hawaii since his first visit in the late 1970s. After that initial vacation to Hawaii in the 1970's Alan took an oath that one day he would move to Hawaii. After six months of Golf, Scuba Diving, Tennis and an assorted other activities Alan became bored with the typical recreational activities and started seeking out a new business. At about that time Alan’s wife became pregnant with his first son, Benjamin. The decision was made to move back to the mainland, and of course Alan and his new wife landed in Florida. When Alan arrived back in Florida he started looking for a place to reside and was amazed at how the housing prices had started to move rapidly higher in just two short years; it was towards the end of 2001 prices started to Accelerate. Alan remembered telling his friends that if they held any property east of I-95 that it was a definite hold as they would increase in value tremendously over time and of course the closer to the ocean the better. At this time Alan decided to build homes on speculation that he would then flip.In 2002 Alan purchased many acres of land in Port St. Lucie Florida which he later used in his building company, MeiBen Home Builders. Alan rode the wave until the latter part of 2007 when unfortunately the real estate market took a nasty turn for the worse. By the third quarter of 2008 Alan had liquidated all of his real estate holdings. It had become quite evident at that time the distressed real estate market was going to be the place to be. For the next several years Alan was involved in per-foreclosure and short sale properties and rode that wave until the first quarter of 2012.As the market has gained much traction in 2012 and remains strong going into the first quarter of 2013 the market has opened itself up for new opportunities.
