For years, Steve Magiera had a desire to retire, but not in the traditional sense. He wanted to break free from the corporate life and build a legacy of his own by starting and cultivating his own business. Through careful research, Steve discov- ered a notable lack of affordable event options for the residents of North Florida. Having found the perfect piece of land, Steve simply needed a financial partner to stand behind him and his start-up. North Avenue Capital stepped in with a loan structure that allowed Steve to see his vision become reality. “I feel so fortunate to have found NAC in 2017, as traditional lending options weren’t going to meet the unique requirements of this project.” -Steve Magiera, Owner Today The Manor’s weekends and weekdays are booking fast for wed- dings, corporate events, retreats, team- building outings, business meetings, and more. Magiera is thrilled to have The Manor be a backdrop for memo- ries of families and friends. Interested in an event at The Manor at 12 Oaks? Visit The Manor online at: www.themanor12oaks.com
