He has quickly and effectively grown Liberty Bell Management and its affiliated companies to their current level of success with approximately 850 units managed at this time. Much of this success is attributable to the fact that LBM and its construction arm, Aimes, self develop and self manage the entire portfolio through development to stabilization. This in house control over the entire process allows the company to streamline wherever possible and keep costs down. He has extensive knowledge of the Philadelphia real estate market and how to navigate the complicated development process in Philadelphia from start to finish. He focuses on growing previously ignored areas and has made a major impact in beautifying and bettering the neighborhoods where Liberty Bell has focused their development.

In recent years he has transitioned the company from rehabbing existing buildings and adaptive reuse to path of land development and new construction.
