For a while, I struggled as I tried to reconcile my desire to bring more compassion and consciousness to this often sad world with my efforts to create personal wealth as a real estate developer. I thought that running a profitable and successful business was mostly about greed and frequently involved dishonesty and selfishness (and was almost always environmentally destructive). For some years, I led two separate ethical lives in making business decisions and personal decisions.
In time, I have come to realize that my business efforts can in fact be used to further the values I wish to manifest in society. By purchasing older, tired and dilapidated buildings and either bringing them up to their original glory or to a level they never formerly achieved, my company is able to improve the neighborhoods we operate in. Through efforts to increase the energy efficiency of our properties and extend their useful lives, we help create housing which is much more environmentally sustainable. By offering yoga classes, after school programs for children, and installing bird feeders, hammocks, water fountains, sculptures, fire pits, and bark parks, Nessel Development endeavors to create a sanctuary of peace for our Residents in an often high-stress world. We endeavor to be generous with the fruits of our labor by making significant donations to charities that promote living that is compassionate, peaceful and environmentally sustainable.
I have set high goals for how I want Nessel Development to operate and thus have frequently failed to meet them. However, with each successive project, we have moved further in the direction of this vision and more ably implemented this mission. I trust you will not find a better value for your rental dollar then renting from Nessel Development and truly hope your experience as our Resident exceeds your expectations.
