Attending Real Estate School in early 1978, Jerry listed his first home in Wellington, Florida the exact day his license was activated. Within 72 days he had his first closing. By December 1979 interest rates exceeded 17% and he experienced his first slide in the market; but remained the number one agent in the office. By 1980, Jerry realized that he wanted his own real estate company. Opening doors in 1981 was exciting and prosperous even with a recession in high gear. Knowing the market has ups and downs, he learned to adjust to the conditions.

In 2001, Jerry joined the Pier Group and between 2003 - 2005 The Lucerne Condominium in downtown Lake Worth was being built and as a result he was involved in over 65% of the sales.

Conditions for buying, selling or managing properties are “RUFF” today, so choose someone with the knowledge and track record you deserve. Jerry is here when you need him.

Steve Facella

RE/MAX Prestige Lake Worth

Lake Worth, FL 33460
Office: 561-540-8979

Cell: 561-635-8393


Born in Brooklyn, NY to the children of Italian immigrants, his parents wanted to get out of the big city so when he was 10 moved to Orlando, FL.  Steve lived in Orlando for over 30 years and watched it grow from a small town to a big city in its own right.

In his early 20's, at his father's urging, he applied and was hired by Ma Bell (AT&T).  His father kept saying "Get a job with benefits!" because every parent wants their children to be well taken care of.  Steve reluctantly obliged and ended up manufacturing computer chips, which turned out to be a pretty cool job.  Then the dreaded words "downsizing" and "spin-off" echoed in the hallways and before he knew it, they closed the factory where he had worked for 21 years. Luckily they offered incentives to take classes and train for new jobs.
 
Steve had become interested in real estate after buying/renovating his first home. So he decided to further his interest and take Real Estate classes and was licensed shortly thereafter.

Steve has since relocated to Lake Worth and begun his career with The Pier Group.  He fell in love with this area as soon as he arrived. The miles of waterfront, the historic downtown area and the incredible diversity of its residents had captivated him.  Steve now looks forward to helping others discover Lake Worth's irresistible charm.

 Designations:

  • e-Pro
  • Accredited Buyer Representative
  • GRI, Graduate Realtor Institute

Michael Kanka

Michael "Mike" Kanka has worn many hats throughout his career.  Mike's childhood as a military dependent offered a youth spent extensively traveling throughout the US and Europe.   As an adult, Mike's career afforded him the opportunity to additionally travel throughout the US.  During his travels, Mike has always kept an eye on real estate valuation based on geography.  During the early 2000s, Mike moved to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and was involved in selling Luxury Homes to North American clientele (US / Canadian). Four years ago, Mike decided to relocate to South Florida and has held his Florida Real Estate License since that time.  Clients looking to consider making Palm Beach County their home would do well to communicate their real estate needs with Mike.  Mike's experience finding exactly the right Palm Beach County property for home buyers, investors and developers is an asset to any prospective buyer.  Working with seller's to establish price, marketing stratifies and customized marketing ligature tailored to highlight a given property is also creatively and expertly executed given Mike's extensive experience.
