SARASOTA – It is 6:54 a.m. when the sun wakes Jesse Biter as it peeks through the windows of his four-bedroom penthouse.
Within minutes, his two girls, ages 10 and 11, scamper through the $3.85 million Marina Tower condominium downtown. Biter cooks them breakfast; it reminds him of his own childhood.
Driving the girls to the Bay Haven School of Basics Plus will likely be the only time Biter will use his car that day. Dressed in jeans and a plaid shirt, with a fresh shave and gel in his hair, he strolls into his office — in the four-story building he owns — by 9:30 a.m.
