After a 22-year career in the golf business, where he designed, developed, owned and operated golf facilities, partnering with his fellow golf professionals as well as real estate developers, Corey obtained his real estate sales associate license with the intent of completing commercial real estate transactions.
As a PGA professional, his penchant for the ‘people business’ made his transition to residential real estate a smooth one. Corey moved to Florida from the western United States after being recruited by the Professional Golfer’s Association of America to become it’s Senior Director of Golf Properties in 2010.
Corey brings an innovative and visionary leadership quality to the business end of the Ward Team. With expertise in short and long-range strategic planning, marketing, financial analysis, executive management and business development, Corey is a creative, organized executive with a track record of increasing cash flow and profit margins while maintaining the highest level of standards for programs and services.
Having managed budgets and projects totaling over $100 million, and staff sizes ranging from as few as 12 to as many as 350, Corey’s business skills provide the Ward Team with a solidified back office, allowing our sales professionals time and energy to focus our efforts on taking care of the most important asset of all … our clients.
As a graduate of the University of Southern California where he played centerfield for the Trojan baseball team, Corey received a B.A. in Communications.
Corey lives in Jupiter with his wife, Jan, and kids Meredith, Marshall, Conner and Logan.
