In 1977 he joined a client, Integrated Resources, Inc., a publicly-held financial services company, and spent 13 years in the marketing, structuring and acquiring of over 600 leveraged real estate, equipment leasing, cable TV and other operating company transactions. He also headed and built the largest financial planning broker dealer group in the United States at that time.

In 1990 he was the senior-most officer at Integrated to move with the acquisition by Eli Broad and SunAmerica Inc. of Integrated’s trust company, annuity company, brokerage business and mutual fund company. During his career with SunAmerica he managed as Chairman, CEO and/or President these and other SunAmerica companies.

In 1999 following the acquisition of SunAmerica Inc. by American International Group, Inc., he stepped away from many of his day-to-day responsibilities and worked directly with AIG’s Chairman, Hank Greenberg, traveling extensively in Europe and the Far East to recreate the SunAmerica core businesses in AIG strongholds located in those places.

He decided to step back even further and spent time in the capacity of Senior Consultant to SunAmerica and AIG. He ended his formal relationship with both companies at the end of 2001.

Thereafter, he formed a series of companies to lend to, invest in and manage operating real estate and storage businesses, which to this day have been involved in over 250 transactions.

The last decade he’s focused on what has become a 40 acre real estate assemblage in the Wynwood area of Miami, a 10 acre assemblage encompassing more than 50 buildings in the Flagler Street area in downtown Miami and a 20 acre real estate assemblage in Jersey City, New Jersey, named Mana Contemporary, which today represents one of the largest 100% art related business/real estate assemblages in the world.

RealT Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions






  1. Overview

This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to you becoming an affiliate in RealT’s Affiliate Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking between the RealT website and your website or your other social networking channels or posts (together, your “Sites”). Please note that throughout this Agreement, “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to RealT, and “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to the affiliate. Applicants who are accepted into the RealT Affiliate Program will each receive a unique referral hyperlink (a “Link”) that they can post on their Sites and share with potential referrals to earn commissions and other rewards.  

  1. Eligibility

The RealT Affiliate Program is open only to any “non-U.S. person” located outside of the United States who has purchased at least one RealToken of any Series of RealToken LLC.  For purposes of this Agreement, a “non-U.S. person” is any natural person who is not a resident of, or located in, the United States, and partnership or corporation that is not organized or incorporated under the laws of, or located in, the United States, and any trust of which all of the trustees are not residents of, or located in, the United States.  

  1. Enrollment and Affiliate Obligations

3.1. To begin the enrollment process, you will apply electronically on the website by reviewing  and agreeing to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The fact that we auto-approve applications does not imply that we may not re-evaluate your application at a later time. We may reject your application at our sole discretion.

3.1.7. Are otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion.

3.1.8. Contain software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program.

3.1.9. You may not create or design your Sites, explicitly or implied in a manner which resembles our website nor design your Sites in a manner which leads customers to believe you are RealT or any other affiliated business.

3.2. RealT reserves the right, at any time, to review your placement and approve the use of your Link and require that you change the placement or use to comply with the guidelines provided to you.

3.3. The maintenance and the updating of your Sites will be your responsibility. We may monitor your Sites as we feel necessary to make sure that your are operating in compliance with this Agreement.

3.4. It is entirely your responsibility to follow all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your Sites. You must have express permission to use any person’s copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work. We will not be responsible (and you will be solely responsible) if you use another person’s copyrighted material or other intellectual property in violation of the law or any third party rights.

  1. RealT Rights and Obligations

4.1. We have the right to monitor your Sites at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your Sites that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our website are appropriate and to notify further you of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your Sites that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the RealT Affiliate Program.

4.2. RealT reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the RealT Affiliate Program immediately and without notice to you should you commit fraud in your use of the RealT Affiliate Program or should you abuse this program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, RealT shall not be liable to you for any commissions for such fraudulent sales.

4.3. This Agreement will begin upon your accepting its terms and providing your electronic signature on our website, and will continue unless terminated hereunder.

  1. Termination

Either you or we may end this Agreement AT ANY TIME, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice. Written notice can be in the form of mail, email or fax. In addition, this Agreement will terminate immediately upon any breach of this Agreement by you.

  1. Modification

We may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. In such event, you will be notified by email. Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and RealT’s Affiliate Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only option is to end this Agreement. Your continued participation in RealT’s Affiliate Program following the posting of the change notice or new Agreement on our Sites will indicate your agreement to the changes.

  1. Commissions

7.1  RealT will pay a referral fee (“Commission”) for each customer referred to the website by an affiliate through the affiliate’s Link who completes a purchase on the website of one or more RealTokens of a Series of RealToken LLC.  The standard Commission will consist of a cash payment to the affiliate equal to two percent (2%) of the dollar amount of RealTokens purchased by the referred customer. RealT reserves the right to change the Commission rate at any time (which change shall not alter the effective rate for any RealTokens already purchased by a referred customer) and may offer from time to time, as and when posted on the website, special promotions including, but not limited to, increased Commission rates, competitions awarding cash prizes to referral leaders, VIP access to RealT events and early notice of new listings on the website.   

  1. Promotion Restrictions

8.1. You are free to promote your own Sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions RealT could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by RealT. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote RealT so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or Sites, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote RealT so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your Sites as independent from RealT. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the RealT Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

8.2. Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware™,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited RealT’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any RealT’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen). As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non-affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of RealT’s site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open RealT’s site; (d) targets text on websites, other than those websites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on websites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
