Who We Are
Signature H Property Group is a real estate company which specializes in the acquisition and redevelopment of golf course communities.
Signature H is a collaboration by some of the most experienced planners, designers, engineers, developers and entreprenuers. Individually, the team has made their mark on a multitude of development projects in both the public and private sectors; including hotels (Marriott), retail centers, municipal projects, and urban communities (Laureate Park, etc.)
We believe in the unconventional value of bringing residential product and amentities to flagging golf course communities, to foster past and future generations engagement and enjoyment of the place they call home.
Helmut Wyzisk III
Helmut Wyzisk III (known as H3) brings a vibrant and highly energized spirit to leadership of Signature H as a serial entrepreneur that has developed, built and operated multiple successful companies. As President and CEO of Signature H, H3 brings his team building, communications, project management and problem-solving skills to Signature H. Most recently, H3 successfully lead his professional team to the design and approval of Signature H’s award-winning New Errol development project in Apopka, FL. He conceptualized the land use changes to maximize the property values. Working directly with City & State Officials, he was able to win land use changes and receive density bonuses and other variances. As a proficient communicator and negotiator, H3 lead the delicate task of coordinating with HOA’s and stakeholders to ensure the project’s compatibility with surrounding land use. H3 also brought his marketing experience to the New Errol project by directing his team to maximizing the impact of social media and web tools to drive local support and national recognition. These calculated marketing efforts resulted in over 400 supportive residents attending each critical public hearing, which set a city-wide record for largest attendance to any public meeting. Prior to Signature H, H3 invented Earhoox, an iPhone earbud accessory, and grew the company from the ground up to quickly penetrate major retailers and generate a product presence in over 90 countries. He was the winner of the SXSW “PayPal Duel” judged by ABC Shark Tank’s Daymond John and was featured in ABC News, Business Insider, GQ, BuzzFeed, and more. He also created and grew eminently.io which reshaped how real estate attorneys market themselves. H3 devised a predictive algorithm to forecast future potential clients with unprecedented accuracy and speed, giving law firms the ability to outsource nearly 100 percent of their marketing to his service. Helmut Wyzisk III received his BS in Finance from Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts.
