About Jay DelMonte
My name is Jay DelMonte and I am very excited to be heading up the RE/MAX Innovative Properties Commercial & Business Brokerage Division. My background is in the Hospitality Business where I had a successful, memorable and long Career.
I was Born, Raised, went to High School and worked in Restaurants & Bars in the Boston Area. After graduating from Merrimack College Moved to Fla.. I worked for some Major Cos. during the expansion explosion of Fla. Tourism in 80’s/90’s . From opening the 1st Applebees Franchise in Ft. Lauderdale in ’85 to a Multi concept Director with 8 Bennigan’s Tavern’s and Steak & Ales in 5 Counties on Fla. west coastline. After Accepting a Position as a Limited Partner, I Moved back in ’95 to Open the New England Outback Steakhouse Franchise. In ’06 I sold back my interest and convinced myself I was Finished with Restaurant Biz. Within 3 Years I was Co-Owner/ President of 3 Shorty’s locations. After 8 Great years with Shorty’s My Partner and I decided to Sell and Contacted Boston Restaurant Group.
I quickly found out I was Intrigued at this business, was fluent at all the nuances of the Industry, & having opened 7 different restaurants from the ground Up I understood Commercial Real Estate side. With Boston Business Group owner Charlie Perkins mentoring me and getting my Real Estate License I started a Boutique Hospitality Consulting/ Brokerage business with Kanteres Real Estate in’16.
Over time my business grew rapidly and realized the demand for Business Brokerage specialist who had actual experience in the field. In 2017 I was Offered & Accepted Sr. Business Brokerage Specialist with Masiello Commercial Group. With up to 25 Listings at any one time I took on an Assistant Kathy MacKinnon from the commercial group to provide better service and increase closings.
During that yr. I kept a Referral & Friendly Relationship with Rick & Josh. After Listening to their Vision on the Future of RE/MAX Innovative Properties in regard to Commercial / Business Brokerage and meeting Hollie & Andrew, I accepted an Equity Position as President of Commercial Division.
