The Real Estate Venture Competition would not be possible without the help of our corporate sponsors and partners. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Gregg Lisciotti and Lisciotti Development for their support and assistance in running the competition this year!

Lisciotti Development was formed in 1991 to invest, acquire and develop real estate assets throughout the United States. In the years since, their commitment to excellence has been unparalleled, whether building a regional power center from the ground up in Leominster, Massachusetts, or repositioning a former Borders Books to a DSW in Tallahassee, Florida.

Now for more than 25 years, Lisciotti Development has been changing the face of the retail landscape in the United States. They have refined and perfected the critical steps of retail development, whether with projects built-to-suit for their clients or with the value-added repositioning of vacant boxes. Their experience has helped them forge longstanding relationships built on trust and respect with both the communities and the clients they serve
