Recently, exploring the diverse business world, Tavio Hobson has acquired a new-found interest in real estate development. In 2006, Tavio teamed up with a long-time friend and business partner to begin investing in real estate projects throughout Seattle. The duo has worked to develop multi-family homes, townhomes, and apartment buildings throughout the city.
He has spent the past decade learning more about the space and uncovering new ways that he can add value to the team and the projects that they manage. Real estate is an industry where operational efficiency can be a huge advantage for developers, and Tavio prides himself on putting together business models and raising funds in a highly effective manner.
Real estate development is an industry with many diverse components dealing with buying, selling, and renovating homes, land, and other properties. Typically, a real estate developer works from beginning to end on the entire process of a real estate project, orchestrating each step. Because there is so much involved in real estate development, developers must be detail oriented with great communication skills and leadership experience. While developers often take the biggest risks in creating, renovating, and developing real estate, they are also most likely to receive the greatest rewards for their efforts.
With a strong background in sales, marketing, and business, Tavio Hobson is excited to pursue new projects in real estate development and see where these experiences will lead him next in his career. As an entrepreneur and start-up consultant, Tavio encourages others to continuously work to define and refine their core competencies and absorb as much knowledge from others as possible.
