MEET OUR TEAM
NOAH LEON | Co-Founder
Noah Leon has intimate knowledge and experience in the South Florida real estate markets, equity and debt markets, and acquisitions and dispositions. During his career, he has played an active role in coordinating the acquisitions of undervalued assets, and the subsequent repositioning of those assets for their highest and best use. Often these included distressed assets, where he dealt directly with financial institutions, investors, and government entities to develop a feasible exit strategy. Noah was also an active participant in various multifamily value-add projects and single-family investments throughout South Florida, where he provided direct oversight, coordinated with all relevant parties, maintained appropriate documentation and insured financial expectations were met and/or exceeded for both investors and himself.
Noah holds a Master of Science in Real Estate Development from Nova Southeastern University, and it was at NSU that he met Terry Stiles, who became his development mentor, and Steven Guasch, his business partner. The success of Defined Companies represents a synergy of Steven’s and Noah’s experience, talents and capabilities.

In 2013 Steven joined a Class-A multifamily developer as a Financial Analyst and quickly expanded into his role of Development Manager. He was responsible for managing the financial feasibility, entitlement, design, acquisition, construction, and disposition of multiple apartment developments across South Florida, Orlando, and Texas, representing a capital investment in excess of $350 million. His involvement ensured the projects stayed on schedule, on budget and surpassed investor expectations.
