Network of flipping founders in Southwest Florida

An investigation by Michael Braga, Aaron Kessler and Charlie Szymanski of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune used social network analysis and hundreds of land and corporation documents to uncover a web of questionable real estate deals involving a Southwest Florida investor and developer. The subject, Mark Brivik, moved properties back and forth between himself, companies he controlled, and his friends &#8212 in the process driving up sales prices and harvesting millions of dollars in questionable mortgages that allegedly funded his lavish lifestyle on the Florida coast. The project includes an interactive network graphic that ties together the major players and their transactions.
