Upon retirement, McCaskill found new direction and inspiration from the success of a childhood friend and college basketball rival, and in 2017 joined Chicago millionaire real estate developer Orlando Patrick as an investment partner and project manager at Patrick Development Group. Since that time, McCaskill has been fully dedicated to understanding local and national multifamily real estate markets and understanding the true value of service and relationships. To this end, Amal has earned his real estate broker license, as well as his Hospitality and Tourism Management Certificate from Florida Atlantic University.
