Quattro Development – Small Business with Big Impact
Quattro Development, founded in 2008, is a one-stop shop for commercial tenants needing new space across the United States. Despite its modest size, this Development has established a widespread presence nationwide. Rob Walters and Mike Liyeos, its co-founders, deserve credit for the company’s success because of their innovative strategy. Their nine-person team has worked tirelessly to provide its services to clients in 31 states, and the number of projects they’ve completed there now exceeds 150.
Walters and Liyeos continue to take on projects nationwide using the same tried-and-true development method. Aiming “to maintain the occupants the same and the building types the same,” as Liyeos puts it. With this uniform process, they can bypass the need for in-depth familiarity with state-specific markets. They tailor their standard method instead to each customer.
Their knowledge gained from their travels around the United States is used well. Walters and Liyeos can talk “intelligently about pretty much any trade area in the country” with their clients since they are well-versed in every region of the United States. Projects are more likely to meet the needs of their clients when local experts are consulted, and their insight is incorporated.
Yet, Quattro’s massive national reach is achieved through delegation. A full-time employee is responsible for reviewing the area’s site plans, laws, and zoning maps. The services of local land-use lawyers, engineers, and contractors are also necessary for adaptation to the local environment.
The people who make up this Development are the key to the company’s success. As their workforce expands, Walters and Liyeos increasingly depend on them to oversee operations nationwide. To fill open positions, they use their networks, which may include friends and relatives. As a result of being entrusted with the duty of executing their work, they are able to provide their staff members time off whenever they need it.
In the long run, the two visionaries hope that Quattro Development will be able to function without them. Quattro Development is a tiny firm offering an uplifting legacy by focusing on “leaving the world better” through its efforts.
