2020 Year in Review: Steve Laverty, Surus Development & Construction

December 25, 2020 - Spotlights
Steve Laverty
Co-Founder and Principal
Surus Development & Construction

What was the most difficult part of working during the pandemic of 2020? The endless uncertainty with both work and children’s education. Regarding work specifically, the availability of those critically needed to advance projects was inconsistent at best.

What aspects of working from home have you enjoyed most? Without commuting and office distractions, the days were noticeably more efficient. It provided an opportunity to spend more time with my family while accomplishing the same or more work in a single day.

What was your greatest professional accomplishment or most notable project,

deal, or transaction in 2020? Breaking ground on a condo development in Brighton was a significant accomplishment for us. It took a great deal of effort and patience to get through the permit delays, raise equity and secure debt. 

What are your predictions for commercial real estate in 2021? I’d expect a slow year all around. 

What is the best advice you have received, and who was it from? An old quote that’s always stood out for me; “Be nice to people on your way up because you may meet them on your way down”.
