Our Consultants are our Resources:
The concept of the RealSolve Group originated in my experiences integrating Real Estate expertise and business experience as a consultant and broker helping businesses start and grow at the University Technology Center. I began meeting other real estate and business entrepreneurs with broad skill sets who enjoyed the challenge of helping business clients as well as investors meet their goals through the use of real estate assets. We believe that all successful business ventures are about relationships. Most of our projects are team efforts. We listen. We network. We collaborate. We see our core personnel and the additional associations and relationships we have with others as our primary working tools in achieving success for our clients. Meet our three core consultants:
