HARRIS SOLKIN

"Whether someone's looking to sell, buy, or rent a home in Land O' Lakes, Lutz, or Odessa, if they do their research they'll discover that Team Solkin is the Realtor that will get them the results they require. Our results-oriented real estate services are unparalleled, and it's my goal that they Choose Team Solkin."

As a successful consumer business entrepreneur, Harris knows that delivering reliable, responsive service is critically important. Previously the founder and owner of Merion Opticians in Pennsylvania, Harris built his business through referrals and creative marketing. At the age of 30, he purchased Original Forester Optical in Atlantic City, and expanded it to 13 locations throughout New Jersey, eventually opening his own full-service optical laboratory. In 1984, Harris sold his optical chain to a publicly-listed company, becoming its Executive Vice President. Under his management, the chain doubled in size from 60 locations to 120. He then became a Vice President of another optical chain, and expanded that from 130 locations to over 860 in a five year period.

In September 1999 Harris and his wife relocated to the Tampa Bay area, and he came out of retirement to seize the opportunity to manage Team Solkin with his son, Rich, when the opportunity presented itself.
