Founder & CEO
Paul’s determination to fuse his passion for architecture and design with his drive for real estate development evolved while working as an architect at Gensler LA — the top architecture firm in the world. It was at this pivotal moment, a decade into practicing architecture, he was accepted into USC's prestigious Master of Real Estate Development, M.RED program. This coveted opportunity allotted Paul to shift his focus on to learning and mastering real estate development and finance. Upon the completion of his graduate studies, Paul merged his professional experience with his newly acquired knowledge and founded PA|RE Development.
Paul has been fortunate enough to live in various places throughout the world. Born and raised in Europe — Poland and Italy, with his formative years spent in Florida and California, he has acquired the unique ability to take cues and inspiration from the people, places, cultures and architecture that have impacted his life. Paul’s multifaceted life and professional experience, his keen eye for architecture and design, and his expertise in acquisitions, development, and construction management allows PA|RE Development to uniquely position itself as a bespoke vertically integrated boutique real estate development office.
Paul Andrzejczak holds a Master of Real Estate Development 'M.RED' degree from the University of Southern California (USC) and a Bachelor of Architecture 'B.Arch' degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Prior to architecture and development, Paul studied English & Literature at the University of Florida (UF).

Director of Business Development
After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of Florida (UF), John pursued a career in healthcare, working with some of the largest orthopedic companies in the world. He was led there by his passion and desire to gain experience in a large-scale, competitive, and complex industry. His other life passion has always been architecture and, more specifically, preservation. As a longtime resident of Tampa, John always felt a calling to help better it. He joined PA|RE in the interest of doing just that. “I simply believe that there's a dire need for preservation wherever possible, and it’s often pushed aside in the interest of profit. Of course PA|RE wants to make money for its investors, but we do it in a way that’s sustainable, better for the environment, and preserves the character that makes this place so special.”
