Principal and Partner
“Entrepreneurial Real Estate Operating System are five words that best describes RUME. From Day One, our abiding vision has been to challenge the present and to defy the status quo. The entrepreneurial ethos is hard-wired in our DNA – we constantly reinvent ourselves, our work and our processes. Nothing is so sacred that it cannot be constantly refined and made more efficient in order to transcend stakeholder expectations.”
