Justin Recca is the broker/owner of Innovative Realty, LLC and is actively engaged in both the sales and property management functions of the company. When he’s not outside playing soccer, he is an avid Walking Dead fan and loves spending time with his wife Liz and their two daughters, Sydney and Sophie.
Justin attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL where he graduated in 1998. Following graduation, he moved to Orlando and began working as a sheriff's deputy with the Osceola County Sheriff's Office. After a few years in law enforcement, he decided to pursue other avenues and developed an interest in real estate. In mid-2003, he embarked on his real estate career as an investor purchasing single-family homes and condos in the Central Florida area for resale or for inclusion in the company's rental portfolio. By 2006, the company had purchased over eight and a half million dollars’ worth of property and he and his wife continue to invest today. Justin brings his varied background and experiences in law enforcement, sales and real estate investing to the table and looks forward to utilizing his experiences to provide quality service to the clients of Innovative Realty, LLC.
