At that time, Clayton Perlman was a superintendent for Perlman Properties. Soon afterwards, he shifted to acquisitions in the family real estate business. In acquisitions, Clayton Perlman was able to learn the local real estate business from the ground up.
“That was really a great time in my life,” says Clayton Perlman, as he reminisces about and celebrates his past real estate accomplishments. “I loved being in acquisitions. I got to learn about buying undeveloped property, and transforming it into a finished product, ready for market.”
During those same years (1986-1989), Clayton Perlman built single-family homes in New Jersey under the name of FICCA Perlman Developers. “I’m still particularly proud of that project,” says Clayton Perlman. “That was one of the first major things that I did on my own in real estate development.”
In 1990, after completing the New Jersey development projects, Clayton Perlman moved to California where he developed single- and multi-family projects with Perlman Properties of California, LLC.
“The California days were truly something special,” says Clayton Perlman. “That was six years of my life in which I fully invested myself into a major project. When you give yourself over so completely to a project that you move there for it… that’s when you know you have a lot invested.”
Beginning in 1996, Clayton Perlman spent a shorter, two-year stint in Wendover, Nevada, and Salt Lake City, Utah with Stonebridge Estates, LLC, developing homes. “Those were also great years for me,” Clayton Perlman. “Looking back and celebrating my career, I feel as if every accomplishment just gives me more reason to be thankful.”
From 1999 to 2004, Clayton Perlman worked as a clerk in the New York Mercantile Exchange. As of 2005, he’s back on the real estate development scene, operating in New Jersey with four different real estate companies.
