Carmelo Gencarelli - Who I Am

Who i am.

I’m someone who never stops asking, “Is There A Better Way?” and who does not doubt the force of innovation-backed execution. Throughout my career, I have seen first-hand the immense rewards that come with digging deep and thinking outside the box. I’m a natural problem solver who thrives on finding creative solutions to challenging problems. My focus is to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to industry trends so that I can offer my team innovative, forward-thinking ideas. I believe that each of us has the potential to make a positive impact, and I’m committed to doing my part.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Working for companies…

in the United States, Brazil, and Argentina has given me a diverse, cross-cultural perspective of the world. Whether it’s a residential or commercial real estate project, I always look for ways to innovate and create value. Ultimately, I want to ensure that customers have the best possible experience while driving growth for the organization. With my diverse background, I bring unique skills and insights that enable me to effectively collaborate with teams in different countries. I’m always looking for ways to add value locally and globally. I’m excited about what the future holds for me, and I look forward to continuing to learn and grow in this ever-changing world.

Moving to the U.S.

Moving to the United States in 2004 with my family was one of my best decisions. I couldn’t find the quality of life I desired for them living in Italy or South America. The U.S. offers us so much—a great education system, incredible opportunities, and a diversity of cultures and lifestyles. It’s not just about having a big house or fancy car—it’s about finding happiness in the little things that make life worth living. Seeing my children grow in such an amazing country has been one of the greatest gifts I could have ever received. Daily, I strive to give back to my community by inspiring others with positivity and determination. As Americans, this is part of our duty—to take advantage of our incredible freedoms and pass them on to future generations.

My thanks!

I want to thank my mentors, colleagues, clients, employers, and partners for helping me grow and improve in many ways. Without their guidance, I wouldn’t be where I am today. And I’m so grateful for them! My big thanks to my parents and sister for all they have done for me—their unwavering commitment and belief in me are the foundation of my successes. Thanks to my uncle for mentoring me all these years and sharing his passion and fascination for architecture and innovation with me. Introducing me to the principles of design and problem-solving early in my life was a gift that I carry with me every day. And finally, a special thank you to my lovely wife and two wonderful sons for being my biggest fans and always remaining supportive and loving! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

What I do.

Besides my weekend writing, my daily focus is to assist my clients in selling and purchasing luxury real estate and design-build residential and commercial projects. I help them develop a personalized action plan that meets their needs and lifestyle. I take the time to listen and understand their unique requirements so that I can give them the best advice and guidance possible. With over 30 years of experience, I have the necessary knowledge and expertise to help my clients make informed decisions when it comes to design-build projects and real estate transactions.

Owner’s Representative.

As an Owner’s Rep, I know that residential and commercial projects can quickly become complicated and overwhelming. That’s why I strive to make sure the project is done right the first time so clients don’t have any headaches down the road. My job is to ensure that my clients’ concerns are addressed throughout the entire process. I was previously SVP for Sciame Homes Palm Beach. As one of the builder leaders, I focused on coaching and mentoring associates, improved customer experience, and increased the company’s revenue and profitability.

real estate Advisor.

Since February 2022, I have been privileged to serve as the Senior Global Luxury Real Estate Advisor for Premier Estate Properties Palm Beach. I work closely with clients to create a selling and purchasing strategy. That strategy is a roadmap toward my clients’ goals, focusing on their unique wants and desires for a successful outcome. Clients also benefit from my extensive architecture, interior design, construction, marketing and sales knowledge. They appreciate my concierge-style approach to real estate, which is tailored to their specific needs.

One more thing…

The power of innovation to change lives is more significant than ever, and embracing this movement can open up new possibilities in every aspect of your life. Above all else, do the things that excite you and ignite your passion—that’s when you will make the most significant impact with your ideas. However, passion won’t protect you against setbacks but will ensure that you ultimately find a way to succeed. Remember, innovators didn’t come up with great ideas by sitting around and waiting for inspiration to strike. They were passionate about what they did, worked hard, and pushed themselves to find solutions. So don’t be afraid to take assessed risks—that’s how innovation happens!
