Recently we were able to connect with Rob and Christal Fortes. They are among the newest Brownstone RG’s Fast Track /Joint Venture Students. They have been super busy, are expecting a baby soon, work full time jobs and have begun this new business venture with Brownstone RG.
Rob and Christal began the program in January of 2018. It’s been about a month and we wanted to check in with them to see how things are going…
How has the last month been working with Brownstone?
“The last month working with Brownstone has been fantastic! They are amazing folks who have true desire to educate you about a craft they excel at.”
What have you spent the bulk of your time doing?
“We have spent the bulk of our time looking for deals, working with Danyl on our project; developing scope of work and meeting with contractors.”
Are you currently working on a project?
“Yes, we are currently working on a project! The location is 5 Westdale Road, Canton, MA and we are excited about the rehab tour that Boston AREIA is hosting on Saturday, Feb 24th from 11am – 2pm.”
What have you found most helpful working with the Senior Project Manager?
“We have found that working with a senior project manager provides us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in each step of the rehab process.”
What is your biggest take away so far?
“Our biggest take away so far is understanding the importance of knowing your numbers and the difference between a repair that is need and upgrade that is desired.”
Seems like Rob and Christal are having an exciting, educational experience so far. We are excited to host a rehab tour at their project in Canton! Keep an eye out on this blog to learn about how Rob and Christal progress as well as from other Brownstone RG Fast Track/Joint Venture students.
