FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – President and CEO of Grecian Delight Foods has purchased a waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale for close to $9 million, The Real Deal (RD) reported.
The mansion, built in 2018 and located at 650 Royal Plaza Drive, was originally listed on the market for $13 million that year, and according to property records, real estate investor Barry Skolnick sold it to Grecian Delight Foods' CEO, RD reported.
Founded in 1974, Grecian Delight, based in Elk Grove Village, IL, focuses on Greek and Mediterranean products for the food service and retail industries, and in April merged with Kronos Foods in Glendale Heights, IL, as The National Herald reported in April of this year.
Listing agent Sheryl Hodor of the Hodor & Hotchkiss Team at Compass told RD that the buyer of the Florida mansion “paid $9.4 million including commissions,” but Hodor “declined to comment on the buyer’s identity,” adding that “despite the home having been on the market with other agents for more than two years, she was able to list it and close it in a couple of weeks, during the pandemic.”
“I just pounded the pavement until it got done,” she told RD.
“Susan Rindley of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer,” RD reported, adding that “BLS Concepts LLC, led by Skolnick, paid $2.1 million for the Fort Lauderdale property in 2015. The seven-bedroom, 9,200-square-foot mansion features a third-floor club room and wet bar, elevator, separate entrance for mother-in-law quarters, smart home technology, and three fireplaces. The property also includes 131 feet of water frontage, a lap pool with a spa, and a six-car garage, according to the listing.”
In 2019, Eric Moscahlaidis, Chairman of Krinos Foods, “one of the largest Greek food importers in North America, paid $13 million for two units at the Zaha Hadid-designed One Thousand Museum in downtown Miami,” RD reported.
