Lavernne Hudson – Amica Senior Lifestyles

It’s not a pleasant memory for Lavernne Hudson, that her late, sight-impaired grandfather needed care beyond what the extended family could provide. He spent his last years in a very institutional facility, and while the place wasn’t uncomfortable, something seemed to be missing. The man deserved better surroundings and more personal attention, she recalls, especially […]

Demetrios Panteleakis

With roots in Mani Peninsula in Greece, Demetrios Panteleakis can lay claim to a few of the Greek cultural ideals coursing through his veins: he has an eye for architecture and is well-versed in law, both serving him well in his modern-day business role. Now overseeing a landmark $800 million project in Miami as the […]

Edward SanClemente – LCB Senior Living

If he ever tells a former faculty member at his alma mater, “I told you so,” it’ll probably be with good humor. That’s just how it is with Edward SanClemente. But time has attested to his foresight as a Wentworth Institute of Technology architectural student during the 1980s. For it was at the prestigious technical […]

Monique Davis – MidPen Housing Corp.

Growing up in Houston, Monique Davis could see her neighborhood needed some care and wanted to help fix the buildings in the city she called home. But how, she remembers thinking, could she even get started? The answer came in a chance meeting when architect Vergel Gay spoke at her school and he and his […]

Jamie Budiac – Sure-Dry Basement Systems

There’s something about the soil in Wisconsin that can be most unsettling—literally—to a house’s foundation. Most of the state is covered by the Ice Age’s glacial deposits and expansive clays much affected by the extreme seasons of the Upper Midwest.  During dry spells—and this region has known drought—the soil shrinks, which can cause what’s been built atop to settle unevenly and oftentimes crack. But with climate change, summer temperatures could be rising and that might mean increased rainfall and […]

Kathy Makino-Leipsitz ‒ Shelborne Development

Kathy Makino-Leipsitz says she was inspired as a teenager while reading “Nothing Down,” a book about buying real estate with little or no money down. But she admits that she didn’t foresee her business path going the way it did. Makino-Leipsitz bought her first duplex as a college freshman with the $2,500 she saved from […]

Urban Property Management Co. – Bill Kasper

You’re living and working in Boston, and your building’s hot water system has malfunctioned or failed while you were at the office. But you don’t know this, and after your long day and the trip home on the T, you arrive ready for a hot shower. Thankfully, you’ll have one because while you were working, […]

Blake Roberts – Legend Homes

When a real estate market turns sour—whether caused by market conditions or a pandemic—that’s not the time to panic, says President Blake Roberts of Legend Homes in Houston. In fact, it’s what he’d call a business opportunity. It was in this very situation that the Texas-based residential development company found itself, not once, but twice. […]

Nathan Marks – Hudson Development & Property Management

Completing a historic renovation of a distressed apartment building in Cohoes, New York, turned out to be a rewarding proposition for Nathan Marks—in more ways than one. For years, the aged 1888 structure had been neglected. But for Marks, president of Hudson Development & Property Management in Albany, it was an opportunity to restore a […]

Max Wolf — DayRise Residential LLC

Where Max Wolf grew up in Hanover, Germany, multifamily housing communities with gyms, pools, dog parks and build-in barbeques weren’t exactly the norm. Today, these concepts are at the core of the multifamily industry in Texas—and Wolf is right in the thick of it. Since joining the Houston-based DayRise Residential LLC two years ago, Wolf, […]
