As a past mentee, Pete completed four mentorship days and considers his day with Jimmy Persino to be the most memorable. “We began the day by attending a roundtable breakfast. I was able meet other real estate professionals and hear a speaker present on the state of the real estate market. I walked away from the breakfast with several contacts and a better appreciation of the macro real estate market. After breakfast, we met with a tenant and general contractor to assess progress of the tenant’s buildout. We then had a late lunch with a banker to discuss refinancing a property. Lunch was followed by an hour of returning phone calls and emails at Jimmy’s office. In the early evening, we attended a Village of Lincolnwood City Council meeting where a proposed TIF was debated. The day ended with drinks to celebrate a closing with one of Jimmy’s associates. In a single day, I was exposed to construction, finance, politics, business development and legal. The opportunity to start my day on a roof in boots and end it in a suit having dinner and drinks was incredibly appealing and to this day is one of my favorite aspects of the industry.”
