About Amit Sela
Amit Sela - Professional Summary:
Minnesota reconstruction and real estate businessman Amit Sela attributes the development of his communications and leadership skills in part to his experiences as a young man in the elite Paratrooper Division of the Israeli Defense Forces. After spending his youth in Ramat Ha Sharon, near the city of Tel Aviv, Israel and entering the Israeli military for three years, Amit Sela immigrated to the United States in the 1970s and eventually settled in Minnesota.
In Minnesota, Amit Sela found work with local builders and contractors, gaining valuable experience and insight into the Twin Cities’ construction, renovation, and property investment industries. Later, Sela and his brother formed a partnership to launch a roofing and remodeling business and a property investment company.
Thanks to Amit Sela’s innovative thinking and foresight, the Sela reconstruction company, which began as a small home services business 30 years ago, was propelled into one of Minnesota’s largest, most successful residential and commercial reconstruction firms, expanding services to include siding, windows, gutters, masonry, water intrusion restoration, and other exterior solutions in the residential and commercial realm.
Additionally, Sela opened a successful property investment company, Sela Investments LLP. This prominent property investment and apartment management firm buys, renovates, leases, and manages desirable residential properties in some of the most sought-after locations in the Twin Cities. Sela apartments offer upscale living and amenities in a gracious, comfortable setting.
Outside of work, Amit Sela shares his expertise and success by providing financial support and counsel to charitable organizations, including Habitat for Humanity International, the Hillel House at the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Jewish Federation.
