Adrian Rubin is a real estate developer whose work takes him to locales all over the continental United States.
He began his professional career in the real estate industry, knowing that everything about the field spoke to his interests and his talents, and he hasn’t been able to shake the feeling since. Because Adrian has always had such a deep passion for real estate, he has always found himself zeroing in on different aspects of the field, and feels grateful for having had professional experiences that required him to develop the skills necessary to become successful in this field.
Although real estate development has many unique quirks and qualities, it is a business just like any other business. In this case, the assets are the buildings and the clientele are real estate companies whose clients include everyday people commuting to work and coming back to the comfort of their own homes.
One of the major facets of the real estate industry is that the demand is ultimately unlimited in major cities. Simply put, everyone needs a place to live. With population growth exploding from year to year, the need to develop real estate properties will continue to move right along with this increase in people.
Adrian Rubin not only understands the necessity for people to have a roof over their heads, but he also understands the strong desire for people to feel comfortable physically and emotionally in their homes. That being said, Adrian takes great pride in developing efficient and well-considered infrastructure that will allow the most people to live comfortably within a given space. His priority at the moment is customer service and business efficiency. He treats all of his real estate development projects as if he were building his own home. This means that he truly has the interest of the client and ultimately, the homeowner in mind. He intimately understands the needs of the resident and works as hard as he can to not only ensure that those needs are met, but to eventually exceed these expectations. While this may pose a challenge to some, Adrian finds that this is what fuels his work and constantly encourages him to find ways to improve the whole experience for the resident.
Real estate development has many aspects to the business, as developers are the ones who convert ideas on a piece of paper into real property. These activities range from the renovations of existing real estate infrastructure to the purchasing of raw land and full development of infrastructure.
Adrian Rubin understands that many individuals then immediately connect this to construction; however, real estate development has a bit more to it. Many real estate developers are well versed in construction, but the actual position takes on more responsibility in the management and oversight of an entire development project. This includes the finances, labor operations, marketing strategy, public approval, leasing, land valuation, and construction operations. The team behind a development project includes multiple experts in the fields of architecture, city planning, engineering, contracting, leasing, and more.
While the demand can be taken care of in bigger cities, real estate developers are typically known for their ability to take big risks and reap the most rewards. They are responsible for determining the marketability of a specific area of land, which can sometimes lead to a lot of time and money, spent with nearly zero benefits. Again, this may seem daunting to some, but Adrian loves the challenges posed by this specific industry and couldn’t imagine his professional life any other way.
Although Adrian Rubin can usually be found working on his most recent project or coming up with ways to enhance the whole experience for both the client and the ultimate resident in one of the areas that he is responsible for developing, you can find him engaging some of his other favorite things. Adrian Rubin enjoys spending time at home with his family, going to art museums, playing golf, and engaging in philanthropy. Adrian Rubin’s main philanthropic pursuit is his involvement with the Children’s Hospital Association which seeks to provide accessible treatment options, high levels of care, research, funding for training to medical professionals and raise awareness of issues facing the patients at the organization’s hospitals.
As a native resident of Philadelphia, PA, Adrian feels extremely lucky to be a part of such a vibrant community that offers all kinds of cultural delights related to his passions outside of work.
Bringing Office Values to the Green
Philly and the surrounding areas are home to some of the best public golf courses around, and Adrian can be found venturing to places like, The Golf Course at Glen Mills, Scotland Run Golf Course or the Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford- when he really feels like making a trip of it. Although Adrian Rubin couldn’t be happier with his career, he truly enjoys the time that he gets to spend outdoors putting on the green of one of his favorite courses. He has also found that this pastime is a great way to connect with clients outside of the office. He enjoys bringing together different people from his life in order to play a great game of tennis and just relax playing such a wonderful game.
In addition to playing at every chance he gets, Adrian enjoys watching the sport on television and tends to get fairly invested in different players during the bigger tournaments. Although many tend to view golf as a slower sport, Adrian enjoys the mental endurance, athleticism, focus involved in the sport. He finds that the game is the perfect marriage of mental and physical ability and that in order to succeed, one must be able to really connect the two things and learn how to block out all distractors. Golf requires patience, perseverance and dedication. It’s also a sport that encourages that players follow particular forms of etiquette and act with good sportsmanship. When considering golf through this lens, it’s no surprise that Adrian finds the sport so appealing as these values echo the same way that he approaches his professional life and attitude towards client services. In addition to spending time on the green, Adrian is also dedicated to the art world.
Adrian Rubin had no chance of escaping art. Coming from a family that believed strongly in the value of artistic expression, he was exposed to classic paintings and artwork from a very young age. He even had the opportunity to study art in school and emerged from all of these experiences with an ever expanding passion for all things art. Although he is well-versed in traditional fine art, as an adult he has enjoyed exploring the more contemporary and modern art offered by painters of today.
While he will always hold a special place for artists like Michelangelo, DaVinci, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Raphael, Picasso, Vermeer and Cezanne, he has also enjoyed exploring the more contemporary works of artists who use various mediums that are a bit more contemporary. Everyone from Murakami to Warhol, to Jeff Koons or Yayoi Kusama, Richard Serra, Kehinde Wiley, Marina Abramovic and Richard Prince, he finds that today’s art is just as thought provoking and generally provocative as work from those artists of the past.
Adrian Rubin is certain that his love for art is part of the reason that he has excelled in his professional life. Adrian is gifted at approaching a project as a blank canvas that needs to be accurately filled in with the vision of the client, and he has developed the tools and listening skills necessary to accurately represent those ideas. He looks at every project as a potential masterpiece suited to the tastes and needs of the client and he couldn’t be happier to provide this service to his clients.
Real Estate in Philly
Although Adrian Rubin has worked on projects in every imaginable region of the US, he strongly believes in the real estate market based in Philadelphia. This area is an incredible place to live, is full of history and culture, and provides a great mix of the old and the new when it comes to architectural styles and types of buildings. Because Philadelphia is such a historically significant city, it’s important to remember that certain buildings and districts require specific zoning licensing and have very particular rules when it comes to building on or near such properties. Even with these seeming restrictions, Philadelphia is an incredible place to live and boasts a robust real estate market.
Adrian Rubin is a consummate professional when it comes to real estate development, whether he is heading up a project for a commercial property or a building that will house hundreds of people. He takes his work seriously because he wants the people who use the space he is responsible for to get the most out of them.
