the Story and People Behind MOXIE
MOXIE Management was founded in 2017 by David Wolber, a real estate investor, entrepreneur and veteran.
What began as an effort to help out a fellow veteran with a sudden real estate management need quickly grew into a passion for David. Today it has become a family business that he runs with his wife, Jessica, along with their own real estate ventures and other professional pursuits.
Meet the MOXIE Management team below, and read more of our backstory.

MORE ABOUT MOXIE
In 2017, a US Navy Lieutenant stationed in Groton, CT purchased a 4-family investment property. But just four months later, he was informed he was going to be stationed on the opposite coast. He didn't want to sell his property, but like any good real estate investor he also knew he couldn't manage it on his own from afar.
Hiring a property manager was his only option. But in the southeastern CT area, most property management companies wanted nothing to do with small investor properties; and those that did were at capacity. Panicked and becoming desperate, he posted a request online.
Enter David Wolber, a fellow Navy veteran and real estate investor. David replied to the post and discussions begin about the possibility of forming a business to manage the property. And thus, MOXIE was born. Today MOXIE provides various levels of property management services for all types of properties and property owners, from single-family homes, duplexes, and six-family properties to commercial office spaces.
