Tom has over 30 years of real estate experience including the design, construction, and oversight of over 11,000 residential units and over 300,000sf of commercial in mixed-use development deals in 11 states valuing over $2 billion in total assets to date. Tom utilizes this experience to proactively provide solutions from initial pro-forma thru construction and operations managing the process in a linear methodology. By applying this philosophy, sound decisions are made from project inception thereby allowing the design team to accurately build the construction set on solid decisions. This minimizes the potential for miscoordination thereby increasing accuracy of the set. This in turn allows for tight and accurate pricing from the GC and subs which minimizes change orders and schedule impacts during construction. This process therefore provides the developer with a project that comes in on time and on budget and provides a win/win situation for the entire team.
