He established and analyzed client requirements, interfaced with clients, budgeted project expenses and hours and ensured team members’ conformance to quality standards—acquiring the skills that allow him to bring such a deep level of understanding to his clients’ real estate portfolios today.
My involvement with HSF honors my father and his legacy. He was a working class man who firmly believed that higher education was crucial to my professional success and personal well-being. He was right. Because of the value he placed on my education, I am proud to support HSF and its benefactors in his memory.
