Episode 028 – Interview w/ Ben Rocca
This episode is a real fascinating one, delving into an aspect of real estate that few ever see. Have you ever wondered how real estate developments start? How a city or county agrees to allow a building to be built in the first place? Well, we’re talking to one today — Ben Rocca of Rocca Development Group. In a nutshell, he works with developers and the local governments to expedite projects and keep everything running on schedule. Whether it’s getting permits or doing due diligence, he makes sure that any bureaucratic blocks are taken care of in order to make sure a project completes. His process is very interesting and he takes us through what he does during a project from beginning to end. We also discuss how neighborhoods interface with new projects — how initial resistance can be overcome and developments are eventually accepted. This is a really interesting episode and I hope you guys like it! Please let us know what you think in the comments!
