Avalon Management, Inc. has a distinguished history of property/investment/asset management and was founded by John Gerard and Angela Gerard in 2003. Having worked for two other property management companies, Angela Gerard had a predilection of what was needed in order to stand out above the rest. So, at 24 years old Angela created Avalon Management, Inc. The company was immediately a success and allowed John to resign from his stock trading career to manage the financial aspect of the company.
Avalon Management’s earlier years focused on managing properties exclusively in the Avalon Park/Waterford Lakes area. More recently, Avalon Management has recognized an increasing need for a competent, proficient management company through out Florida. In addition to an aggressive marketing campaign and reputable business practices, the company invested in cutting edge technologies that have allowed Avalon Management to provide unparalleled client services. Avalon Management continues to have extraordinary growth and will continue to provide exceptional service to our customers. The established property management strategies along with unprecedented customer services have ambitiously ranked Avalon Management, Inc. as one of the most distinguished Florida property management company's.
As a strong believer in education, Angela Gerard returned to the University of Central Florida in 2011 and graduated with a BSBA in Real Estate. She completed education in Real Estate Law, Fundamentals in Real Estate, Property Appraisal, Financial Investment Analysis and Real Estate Finance. Angela Gerard was selected to participate in the UCF study abroad program to Russia and was on the UCF Dean’s List. She wrote articles about International Business and studied and wrote briefs on active case trials that took place at the Orange County court house. She has an extensive background in property management and has served in the industry for over a decade.
John Gerard attended the University of Central Florida graduating with a BSBA in Finance. He obtained his series 7 and series 55 license by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. He also holds an active real estate license and has been in the industry for nearly a decade. John is a 1st degree black belt competing in the US Open and has played in the World Series of Poker.
John and Angela enjoy traveling and have had opportunities to experience countries such as the United Arab of Emirates, Spain, Italy, France, Japan, Canada, Western and Eastern Caribbean Islands and Mexico.
John and Angela have dedicated countless hours to non for profit organizations. They were the directors of Angel Food Ministries (providing quality food to low income families) in 2009 and Sunday school teachers from 2007-2009. They have volunteered and financially supported organizations including The Ronald McDonald House, Hoops for Heart, Give Kids The World, Susan G. Komen Foundation, El Salvador Missions, Brielle's Brigade, Avalon Elementary, Avalon Middle School, Orange County Partners in Education and Boosterthon/FunRun. Avalon Management has also had the pleasure of sponsoring multiple families that were in need by fulfilling their childrens' holiday wish lists. Most of those sponsored were Avalon Management's clients. More recently Angela was able to participate in a 7 day mission trip to a 3rd world country where she assisted in the construction of a building and served/taught children at an orphange.
John and Angela are humbled by the success they have been privy too. They continue to grow the business while maintaining the integrity of the company and despite multiple offers to sell they continue to strive and work diligently.....because they love what they do. Like any career, especially a debt collection industry such as property management, stress can be abundant and sometimes overwhelming but the majority of the time it can be a blessing especially being able to see families settle into their rental homes and their feeling a sense of community.
