Get to know Yizhak Toledano
Yizhak Toledano is a real estate entrepreneur. Born and raised in Israel, and currently residing in Florida, Toledano kicked off his career building affordable housing for the Israeli government. His immigration to the US brought about an extension to his interests in real estate, turning him toward the financial aspect of the business. He founded a real estate development and investment firm before becoming the founder and CEO of Sky Development in Florida, a company that has raised the standard of condominium luxury living.
Yizhak Toledano was born in Israel on November 3, 1974. He spent seven years, from ages 18 to 26, learning the real estate and development business while working for his father’s construction company. In 2000, soon after completing his military service with the Israeli Defense Forces, he immigrated to the US.
Toledano launched his career in the US in a local Florida bank as a mortgage broker. Learning the ropes in finance and real estate, Yizhak took a leap in 2001 and founded Toledano Holdings, LLC, an investment company based in Florida. It eventually transformed into the Skyrise Development Group of which Yizhak was the founder and managing partner from 2004-2005.
Real Estate Ventures
In 2006, Yizhak Toledano launched Sky Development, a company focused on acquiring, developing and restoring both residential and commercial properties. Under Toledano’s ownership, Sky Development began with the renovation of two small apartment buildings in Miami. From there the company took off with many notable projects such as Villaggio on the Lakes, a 223-unit luxury condominium community of manor homes in Port Orange, Florida, with direct access to a beach, private lake and pool. Seaside Retirement Resort, a first-class assisted living facility across from the Hallandale beaches, and Aqua Bella, a townhouse community in Dania Beach are among Sky Developments top projects offering Florida residents luxurious living. In addition, the alluring and newly-completed Residence at Canyon Gate in Las Vegas, Nevada, consists of 504 secure units and offers swimming pools, waterfalls, and full recreational facilities. A supporter of Florida’s urban development, Skyrise’s flagship project, Livingston Orlando, presents a mix of luxury residential and commercial properties with contemporary and very unique designs.
Organizations and Awards
Yizhak Toledano sits on the Advisory Board of Directors and he holds shares in Marquis Bank, an institution that offers private banking services and loans that cater to small businesses.
Toledano’s outstanding and creative approach to real estate development has earned him high regard among his peers. In 2007, he was the recipient of the Visionary Development Award by the Miami Florida Developers and Builders Alliance Association.
Yizhak Toledano’s work is far from over at the end of the day; he and his wife are parents to seven children. Perhaps one day his children will benefit from their father’s expertise, the way Toledano learned from his own father. And although they are not experiencing the humble beginnings of their father’s childhood, hopefully they will absorb the message that hard work pays off.
