Our Visionary Management Team


The real estate developer is in charge of the entire project, from design to the final touches. He finds the land where to build, contacts the relevant people to obtain the necessary confirmations or permissions for the development of infrastructures, and oversees the work of the engineers, evaluators, planners and architects to bring the project to fruition. He must be a good visionary to invest in one project rather than another, knowing that the land and the site will accrue in value.
