About John

Mr. Durand has spent more than 26 years of his career in the real estate industry and is currently licensed in the State of Florida. He is a highly respected entrepreneur with great vision and an innate ability to develop strong working relationships with his peers and clients. For most of his career, Mr. Durand had been instrumental in consulting and launching high end development projects of forty million to more than one hundred million dollars. Mr. Durand has consulted and launched projects for Intrawest, the multi-million dollar ski and golf resort developer recognized nationally and internationally. He was a leader of a cutting edge team engaged in the ultimate success of major development projects which include Park City, Utah, Stratton Mountain, VT., Vernon Valley, N.J., Snowshoe, W.Va., Mont Tremblant, Canada, and Sandestin, FL.

In 2004 Mr. Durand’s talent and experience was recognized by a mid-west developer. He was hired as the lead consultant to work with the project architects, excavating contractor and state and federal regulatory agencies. He also launched the first and second Phases of this development and oversaw the creation of a 27 acre New England style harbor. After successfully completing the Buckeye Lake, Ohio project, in 2008 Mr. Durand was then hired by Clemens Companies to consult in the same capacity for a new project in Grand Lakes St. Mary’s, Ohio as well as Clemens development in Norris Lake, Tennessee.
Prior to 2008-09 Mr. Durand had the foresight to predict the impact that credit default swaps would have on the future of the Real Estate economy. He recognized that there would be a consumer crisis challenge impacting the real estate development housing market. As a result, Mr. Durand embarked on a new challenge that involved consulting with his past developers and business associates navigating them through the next few years of a downed market. Because of his insight, developers and business associates credited Mr. Durand with saving millions of dollars in future losses.

In 2010 when the world’s largest environmental disaster occurred in the Gulf Coast as a result of the B.P. Oil spill, Mr. Durand recognized that his extensive background in real estate development and his acquired skills would transition well to providing consulting services to aid victims of this catastrophe. He began investigating these cases for law firms and assisting the affected victims. Mr. Durand has also become engaged in the investigation of defective Chinese drywall construction and has assisted clients navigating them through the remediation process. Mr. Durand has been representing prominent law firms in Houston Texas, Washington D.C., Miami and Stuart Florida. He has been a successful consumer advocate, promoting and raising awareness of the impact of environmental issues.
Mr. Durand has provided Business Development for Trinity Mega Yachts and International Yacht Collection (IYC). In 2012 he coordinated and launched a successful business partnership for Trinity/IYC which allowed them to open a newly designed office space in New Port Rhode Island. Mr. Durand provided business development at Yacht shows in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and Newport R.I.

Mr. Durand is currently partnering with Cooke Construction Inc., Jensen Beach Florida focusing on construction services.
