Consulting, Government Relations
A: I wake up early so I don’t have to rush to get ready. I then inevitably lose track of time reading the Washington Post and watching TikTok & Instagram and then rush to get ready. I always have Bloomberg Radio on in the morning in the house and in the car.
A: My firm helps businesses and individuals work through regulatory, legislative, and market issues so they might enjoy greater success.
A: The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein.
A: Covid-19 will forever change the way businesses think about commercial real estate needs and how consumers conduct commerce. This will have enormous implications on commercial real estate.
A: I like to listen to podcasts and watch YouTube videos on entrepreneurship, commercial real estate development, and finance. I wish those would have been around when I was in college. My grades would have been a lot better!
A: Well I can only speak for myself but I think sometimes when I was younger I was embarrassed to say “I don’t understand. Can you explain that?” I realize now that successful business people are constantly tackling things they don’t know.
About Justin Ross:
Elected at 26, Justin represented Prince George’s County in the Maryland House of Delegates for over 10 years where the Washington Post hailed him as “among the Maryland legislature’s brightest young stars.” Serving on the House Ways & Means Committee, Justin developed expertise in state and local taxation matters, economic development, and state transportation funding. As a chief deputy majority whip, the Post noted that the leadership title “understates the importance of the role he has played in recent years helping round up votes for key pieces of legislation.” Justin also spent more than a decade working in commercial property development and leasing and also has experience in investor and labor relations as well as marketing commercial real estate. A lifetime resident of Prince George’s County, Justin remains active in a number of charitable Prince George’s County organizations.
