Real Estate Development Consulting
We work with clients looking to break into the development industry. We can provide guidance on development projects from start to finish or during any portion of the project you feel you need additional support in.
As a development consultant, we can assist with site selection, feasibility, zoning, environmental, financial development structuring, sustainability, community relations, design & permitting, construction, and leasing.
In addition to direct support, we can provide an introduction to our professional network, which consists of, bankers, architects, contractors, and attorneys.
Our construction experience allows us to provide our clients with top-of-the-line construction consulting services and help reduce unneeded stress. Our founder Josu’e Velney has a Construction Management degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology. In addition, Mr. Velney has completed Suffolk Construction’s Build With Us Certification and Clark Construction Strategic Partnership Program Certification.
We have found Construction Management to be one of the most important roles and factors that determine a project’s success. Therefore, we simplify our project management processes into several phases, which consist of planning, managing, tracking, and reporting. When we break down this process further, we focus on budgeting & estimating, scheduling, hiring & managing contractors, creating a scope of work, and tracking & reporting progress.
If you are looking to tackle a complicated rehab project or your first ground up construction project and would like additional support, please contact us at 617-401-9339
Real Estate Investing Consulting
If your goal is to build a rental portfolio, we can guide you through this path. Before we were developer and contractor focused, we were real estate investment focused.
The backbone of our success was building an integrated system linking all the key elements a real estate investment firm should have.
First, we created a motivated lead funnel, second, we created and trained an A+ acquisition team, third we created a process that allowed us to stabilize new assets as fast as possible. Fourth we created a management process that allowed us to focus on future assets and continue collecting passive income.
Velney Development is a Somerville-based Veteran owned and Minority owned real estate development firm. We focus on multifamily and mix-use commercial properties. Our projects consist of mid-scale to large-scale urban redevelopments. We have been the general partners on projects as small as one unit and as large as two hundred and thirty units.
