About The Team
Roger has developed and built over $30MM in new construction residential and mixed-use properties in the Chicago market.
His new book “Don’t Buy Multifamily! BUILD IT” tells you how it’s done and why it’s one of the most rewarding ways for investors to build wealth, year after year.
“Growing up in Chicago, I was always fascinated by architecture.
After starting in the commodities and securities industries, I began in real estate development in 1987 putting together limited partnerships for historical tax credit rehabs.
In the early 90’s marketing condominium conversions projects in on Chicago’s Northside I found that I just wasn’t satisfied with the quality of work that other developers were doing.
I developed and built my first new construction condo project in the mid 90’s and through the 2000’s my companies focused on architectural design, development and construction of great condo projects and a number of large luxury single-family homes in Old Town, Buck Town, Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast as well as the Portico Townhome Project in the West Loop.
During this time from 2005-2010, I also served as a Director and Head of the Real Estate Committee on the board of Ravenswood Bank in Chicago’s Lincoln Square.
Serving on the board and loan committee of a community bank specializing in construction lending during the development hay days of the 2000’s and credit crunch of 2008-2010 afforded a unique perspective and many lessons about risk and risk mitigation.
I’ve learned in the trenches, which deals are likely to run into troubles and which will stay strong if the market hits a rough patch.
Many times when I speak to successful professional people who’ve read my book “Don’t Buy Multi-Family! BUILD IT” they recognize the great opportunities and often have wanted to get started for years, but have hesitated because of the complexity and time commitment of owning and managing property.
For busy professionals, it makes far more sense to invest passively in new Class A multi-family developments by collaborating with an experienced professional development team to manage your investments, maximize returns and help to build your legacy.”
It all begins with a conversation.
