RIA Development

About Us

Development – Building buildings – It’s a fantastic concept. However, the rising boom in development also sees the same major roadblocks popping up; Budget cuts, partners backing out, loans don’t get approved…the list goes on. We have worked alongside developers & property investors for over 15 years and we understand how frustrating this process can be. As such, we decided, some 12 months ago, to offer a new tier service to our clients: RIA Development!

Heading up this new endeavor is Jeff Rogish, who handles an array of development-related fields. Check out the development timeline below and let us help you build your legacy!

Development Timeline

Land/Project Sourcing

  • Through our knowledge of local markets and, being veterans in the industry, we locate the land/project that a client is looking for
  • We are experts in multi-family & commercial developments so we know what to look for in terms of meeting a client’s needs
  • We cut out the difficulty with negotiating for the right land/plot and handle the discussions so that our clients can focus on the planning and design stages, knowing they’re in safe hands

Feasibility & Roadblocks

  • One of the biggest roadblocks a client will come across is if they are unable to determine whether they can build what they want, where they want
  • What a client wants to build vs. what a client can build is always debatable. We bring together a wealth of experts and knowledge to maneuver around such obstacles
  • Often, locating land for specific projects is difficult and, without knowledge of the property market, can be incredibly difficult to obtain

Design & Coordination

  • There are a multitude of entities that go into the design of a new-build construction and often they do not communicate with each other on each step of the process
  • We specialize in coordination and linking each element together before, during, and after the development process
  • We communicate with each individual on a project such as architects, planners, surveyors, engineers, plumbers etc & connect the dots that others don’t even see

Review Process

  • This is the largest and longest stage in a construction project’s timeline, consisting of:
    • Submittal to municipality
    • Planning Department
    • Permitting Department
  • Each municipality is different and has intricate requirements before approving a submittal. We navigate through the systems so our clients can breathe easily
  • We ensure that our client is kept in the loop on every detail and small change
  • We provide the expertise required to see a project through to approval

Construction & Delivery

  • There are many elements that go into the physical construction of a building
    • We tie up loose ends on everything from budgeting and contracts to coordination, scheduling and inspections
    • We have a highly trusted referral base of contractors and sub-contractors that we have built up throughout our years in the industry


  • This is the final stage in the process. When a client decides that they want to sell their newly developed building, we find them active buyers who are interested in expanding their new-build portfolios
  • We assist our clients in each step and also advise them on their sale and investment options during this phase of development
