The Developers

Noble Equity Development

John Prosser is the founding partner of Noble Equity, a Manhattan-based real estate investment firm which specializes in large scale commercial refinancing and ground up development. His real estate career began as an investment banker focusing on real estate transactions for Alerce Global.

Having spent his formative years living in Palm Beach and playing high school baseball at IMG in Bradenton, John understands the numerous intangible benefits of coastal living with its unmatched weather, culture, and growing diversity; the very things that brought him back to south Florida.

When asked about his passion and success for real estate and being a real estate developer, he simply stated: “Not many industries exist that demand the use of all facets of your mind; real estate development is one of them”. And it is this all-encompassing strategic yet personal approach that has defined John’s reputation.

John received degrees from New York University and Tulane University. His background is in Finance, Accounting, and Economics.



Jim Bridges, founder and CEO of Jebco Ventures, Inc. has been selected by John Justin Prosser, President of Noble Equity, to assist in the development of the “Beacon”, a luxury six unit high rise condo development to be located on Second Street in Sarasota.

Jebco Ventures, Inc., a diversified real estate development company, who has over 40 years of development experience, has been involved in a broad range of mixed-use projects throughout the Sarasota area.

Jebco Ventures, Inc., looks forward to working with the team to deliver a world class building to the heart of Sarasota. 


Michael Holt

Michael Holt, co-founder of Noble Equity, started his career in real estate as a sales specialist in New York City. “I’ve worked with clients from all over the world throughout my years as a real estate agent. You learn about people and what matters most to them. The best developers build with their primary focus on what a buyer would love. Reputation is everything.”

Michael is an IMG alumni and also played baseball at State College of Florida. When asked about his thoughts on the Beacon, Michael sated: “I come from a family heavily involved in real estate. There’s a special excitement being able to create a building so unique in the city the means the most to you.”

About us:


Construction Team

GATES was founded in 1993 as Southwest Florida began to come of age. As this new frontier was born so did a demand for high quality construction in virtually every market sector: commercial, multi-family, residential, retail, hospitality, industrial, institutional, health care and country club lifestyle projects. GATES was at the forefront as a general contracting and construction management firm, and quickly gained a reputation for quality construction and exceeding clients’ expectations. Our diverse portfolio can be attributed to this growth in what was known at the time as “boom town”. Through strategic planning and a team of highly experienced construction professionals, GATES has emerged from humble beginnings and is recognized today as one of the area’s leading construction firms.
