In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Rich Pesce to talk about how he started his construction management business in Lower Manhattan months before September 11th, and how he became a real estate investor in three Key West Bed & Breakfast Inns: The Inn on Fleming, Coco Plum Inn Bed & Breakfast, and Key West Bed & Breakfast.

We discuss the mindset needed when starting a business in one of the country’s hardest times, how to navigate the Key West real estate market, and how having the right business partner can make all the difference.

I had the great pleasure of conducting this interview in one of Rich’s homes in Old Town – known famously as the Calvin Klein Home (for the obvious reason 😎).
