Peter Duke was born in St. Petersburg, FL, and raised in rural North Carolina and the west coast of Florida. A natural entrepreneur, Duke planted a potato garden at the age of seven, then dug it up and tried to sell them to his neighborhood grocer. In his teens he could be found installing car sound systems and then moving on to auto security. It wasn’t until 2003 when Duke’s career in real estate began after he bought his first rehab in Orlando. Back then, he had no connections, so he did all the work himself. Installing the roof, hanging drywall, digging the septic – whatever it took, he found out how and did it. Now, many years and nearly 100 houses later, he still loves learning from every project, and using his trade skills to help guide the construction teams to the perfect results.
