A Holistic Management Approach
Development is a complex process involving multiple disciplines, stakeholders, and regulatory hurdles. At Milestone, we realize that perfectly managing design, construction, and budget won’t be enough if you don’t acquire the land properly, secure the necessary entitlements and negotiate appropriate financing.
Our Compensation Is Based On Results
We understand that if you’re not successful, we can’t be either. With your guidance, we identify key project milestones and manage to those milestones. Our compensation is linked to achieving your objectives.
We Are Passionate Advocates
When we accept the challenge of your project, it’s because we believe in it. We’re committed, responsible, and accountable every day until the job is done.
Facilitating group decision making and communicating with stakeholders is important and often more time consuming than project management.
We Have Experience
The firm’s principals have been managing real estate development in Central Virginia for more than 35 years across a wide range of project types and sizes. We know what it’s like to be “at risk”, and we’ll bring that sense of ownership and accountability for results to your project.
The owner was able to rely on Milestone Partners to come to them with important issues that required their input, and to quietly take care of the myriad of other issues that still need tending on a daily basis.Jeff Dreyfus, Principal at Bushman Dreyfus Architects
An independent owner’s representative has the ability to provide unbiased decision making where all members of the team are held accountable on deliverables while also keeping the entire team focused on the end goal.Pete Alcorn, President at K+L
Questions arise, decisions must be made, and guidance must be given to the designers and the contractor throughout the course of any project. Timely responses from the owner’s side are critical to maintaining schedule and budget. And when the client is a Board of Directors or a committee, answers can be slow in coming.Jeff Dreyfus, Principal at Bushman Dreyfus Architects
