ing feature of the property is the nine
125-year-old oak trees, whose branches

“I had a gut feeling this would be a
great house to raise my children,” Becker
says. His son’s closet still has the marks
and dates on the wall as he grew. The two
daughters have graduated from college
and the son will soon follow.
Originally from Winter Park, Becker
calls himself a true entrepreneur. He has
purchased 32 companies, “re-energizing”
tKem to become more SroÀtable. +e still
owns six of them.
“I bring in people a lot smarter than
me so they can help the workers do their
thing,” Becker says. While living in Atlanta,
he volunteered his time as a consultant
for the 1996 Olympic Games.
VERO WAS PERFECT
When thinking about where he should
raise a family, a friend suggested Vero
Beach, a town he had never heard of. “We
rented a hotel on the beach,” Becker says.
“And we thought it was so beautiful here.
It is so relaxed, no crime, good schools,
clean water and friendly people.”
After buying the house, Becker set out
to leave his footprints. The goal of the
project was to open up the house, includ-
brighten up the
which was added to
the house as part of
the new kitchen.
