Active Real Estate professional with experience in Design, Developing, Project and Construction Management, Cost Containment and Acquisitions. Interested primarily in smaller commercial income producing property or ventures; either buy and hold or for resale. Not much enthusiasm for land banking or patient money deals. Not adverse to joint-venturing with qualified investors or other good partners (including those that may be land or property poor) that do not meet the government’s “qualified investor” criteria.
