Real estate is in my blood. I'm an architect and urban designer by training, and cut my teeth as a real estate developer in Pittsburgh, on important and challenging projects in neighborhoods that were just a little neglected. These were difficult projects to finance, and yet the community always rooted for them. My hope was that Small Change would become a place to raise capital for community-centric projects - a community bank of sorts. Real estate is a powerful tool and we believe that every developer has the choice to make (or break) a community with their investment. We choose to support the real estate deals that will build better cities.
