Chris Zacco

Raised in a family that owned a Florida construction business, Chris Zacco just about grew up with a hammer in his hand. It makes perfect sense, then, that he went on to become a developer, one who comprehends all aspects of construction. Chris Zacco began his career developing and leasing properties for Davie Commerce Center, Inc., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In that capacity, he built and leased office warehouse complexes at Davie Commerce Center, Blue Heron Commerce Center in Palm Beach, and Z&S; Properties in Davie. Throughout this process, Chris Zacco designed, supervised, and built office and warehouse spaces, executing approximately 400 leases. Chris Zacco later built roofs and structural shells for housing developments and apartment complexes as a Structural Contractor for Nations Construction Services, Inc., before taking over Cherry Developers, Inc., in Ocala, Florida, as President in 1990. For the next decade plus, Chris Zacco acquired land parcels and developed an adults’ community, Cherrywood Estates, in Ocala. He designed the roads, the community layout, the homes, and an upscale clubhouse and also acquired commercial property and built a welcome center. In all, Chris Zacco and his staff sold 730 homes in Cherrywood Estates. For his next major project, Chris Zacco acquired the land for and developed Ocala Equestrian Park, also rezoning Grand Meadow Estates and platting Silver View Farms. Currently, he serves as a Managing Member, Property Manager and Developer for Cherrywood Property Management, LLC, Grand Meadow Estates, and Ocala Equestrian Park. When not pursuing professional goals, Chris Zacco supports his children’s participation in HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun), Inc. equestrian events and enjoys other outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, water skiing, and snow skiing. In addition, Chris Zacco takes pleasure in attending concerts, movies, and comedy clubs, as well traveling.
