Weinstein’s real estate development experience includes due diligence and design oversight in commercial and residential project approvals.
Additionally, Weinstein is a court-recognized engineering expert with experience in creating reports and testifying in high profile construction litigation cases. As an expert witness, Weinstein’s experience in litigation cases has been trusted by clients involved in mediation settlements.
“Steve’s background in development, as well as his extensive expertise in project value engineering, make him ideally suited to join our team as we look to continue to expand our value-add development and redevelopment pipeline,” said Nicholas Minoia, founder and managing partner of Diversified Properties. “We are excited to enhance our internal capabilities with the addition of Steve and are confident his diverse skillset and experience will enable us to more aggressively identify and pursue value creation opportunities throughout the Northeast in the years to come.”
