After beginning his career practicing law in the private sector and clerking for a federal judge, Todd leads Red Seal’s land acquisition, zoning, and development efforts and oversees all of Red Seal’s transactional legal matters. He and co-owner Brian Hoffman have led Red Seal’s entry into and establishment in the Nashville market, bringing the company’s unique history, culture and talents to 9 new Nashville communities consisting of over 450 homes. Together they continue to identify and develop prime Nashville properties, transforming them into beautiful residential communities.
Over the past 28 years, Mr. Fishbein has overseen the acquisition and development of Red Seal communities comprising over 1.5 billion dollars in development throughout the Chicago Metro and Nashville markets; including the privatization, zoning and redevelopment of a former US Military Base.
