Calello Agency / The Chateau Grande Hotel
Calello Agency is a Real Estate Development and Management Firm that specializes in Residential workforce housing. My hope is that we will have broken ground by June on a new 35 unit apartment building and I can incorporate that project into the DelEx presentation.
The Chateau Grande Hotel is our latest new venture which opened in December of 2020 and is a 108 Room Boutique Hotel in East Brunswick, NJ. This was a fun project to discuss with the boys last year and now that it is up and running, there is good COVID related stuff to discuss.
Host Job Responsibilities
If I am planning my day right (haha) it is a 50/50 mix of making sure that the day to day is running smoothly on our current assets and then focusing on "what's next".
About the Externship
I give about a 30 minute overview of why I chose Small Business and why I enjoy commercial residential real estate, what aspects appeal to me about development and how I think students who want to prepare for this type of experience would best be served in college.
Then I spend time on a specific project. One project that we can peel apart and look at it from initial conception to wherever we are now. I have enjoyed staying in touch with some past DelEx students sending them pictures of completed projects that they visited in varying stages of development.
