South Florida



LDeMarco Headshot Final

It is a great honor to serve as the RELA South Florida Chapter President alongside Vice Presidents Chad Musgrove (Lument) and Matthew Gnad (HSBC).


As we enter the 2021-2022 fiscal year, we look forward to growing our community of talented commercial real estate lending professionals. We have an exciting year ahead as we plan to host all events in person while communicating any changes needed through the season to keep our members safe. We hope that you can join us for our upcoming events as we offer invaluable networking opportunities, educational panels, property tours, insightful discussions, mentorship, career building, and long-lasting friendships.


I’d like to give a big thank you to our Chapter Sponsor, Holland & Knight, for their continued generosity and support; they are an integral part of the RELA South Florida community and have been with us since the inception of our chapter.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with inquiries including membership, sponsorship, and programming suggestions. Wishing everyone success and good health during these challenging times. Hope to see you soon!
