TREC - The Real Estate Collaborative

The Real Estate Collaborative (TREC) was founded in 2011 by Jennifer and John Roach, who share a passion for real estate and a desire to take the fundamentals of good building practices and years of real estate experience and create a more modern and collaborative approach to investing in and developing projects. Their holistic approach brings a broad spectrum of outside skills to traditional areas of real estate. Wall Street analytics and a heightened design aesthetic inform our brokerage expertise and building relationships, to arrive at end projects that contribute to the surrounding community in a meaningful way. Our goal is to achieve the highest quality, at the lowest maintenance without compromising on the end result so that every rental, every sale, and every investment property has an authentic sense of place and purpose that benefits our consumer, and its surroundings.

TREC, as a bespoke real estate group, deploys a grass roots approach to development. We live in the communities we develop, and work in true partnership with each of our vendors. As active members of the communities in which we work, we are focused on the unmet needs of the area, and interests of that specific community. Employing locals provides further continuity, input and supply knowledge to complete projects that will work best for that area. TREC’s process is solution-based, and supported by the same level of analysis that Wall Street advisors use when approaching an investment.

A true “collaborative”, TREC unites a myriad set of talents, making best use of each of their specialties and expertise. We collaborate across sectors within our own organization according to the needs of each project, as well as with our extensive network of partners, with whom we have long standing relationships. Each of our partners we consider “best in show”, whether its an outstanding vendor such as Waterworks, or a nationally acclaimed landscape designer such as Fernando Wong. We celebrate each partner’s contribution to the whole as they provide their mastery to projects within the TREC portfolio. Thus, our business can always be viewed from two standpoints: as a development and as an investment.

As a development, TREC analyzes each property as its own bespoke entity, independent of market trends, with a long-term outlook. From acquisition to the finished value, the focus is on making a positive impact and creating lasting value inherent to the property.

As an investment, value is added by collaborating with an impressive array of highly sought after vendors, whose work on the property as a collaboration is achieved at a smaller expense than if each of their services had been contracted separately. Value is added from what we like to call a “SWAT team” approach.

TREC’s areas of operation include architecture, construction, brokerage and finance. Quality, creativity, and technology are heavily considered, to develop real estate that benefits from our collaborative approach.  We utilize the advantage of scale, but mitigate risk by diversifying our scope of work across a number of strategic concepts. As a business, TREC’s mission is to create value and make a positive impact in our community by enhancing the way people live through designing and building high-quality, high-functioning and low-maintenance properties that reflect the needs and opportunities of the area.

TREC 360 approach allows us to partner with builders, like-minded investors or potential homeowners; we are always looking for exciting opportunities to enhance our communities and build towards the future.

 

ABOUT JENNIFER ROACH

Jennifer Roach founded The Real Estate Collaborative (TREC) alongside her husband in 2011, under the then name Indian Chase Partners. Roach brings to the firm a lifelong passion as well as decades worth of experience.

Roach entered the commercial real estate industry in 1997 at Miglin Beitler as a Junior Tentant Representative. Upon the company’s merger into Douglas Elliman, Roach then transitioned into a business development role.

Moving to Greenwich in 2002, Roach became an active member of her community and familiarized herself with the town’s sentiments, interests, and legislation. She learned as much about its spirit as she did the zoning laws.

Roach eventually started renovating her friends properties and buying and doing the same for her own. She has since gone on to work on larger, more conceptual developments, looking at deals with a holistic approach that is forged in collaboration with construction and design partners, focusing on every aspect of the home from design and tech to sales and management. Her goal is to build the company from a family business into a true real estate collaborative.

While the company and its goals have grown, Roach’s approach remains the same. As a member of the communities in which she works, she uses her knowledge of her environment as well as her real estate expertise to inform her decisions and produce projects with inherent market value that appeal to the particular interests and needs of inhabitants of the area. Roach’s mission is to bring individuality and thoughtfulness to an often formulaic process while creating beauty, luxury properties, and jobs in the community.
