Jaqueline Rosetti-Falvey: A Hands-On and Involved Leader

By  0 Comments

Rosetti Properties began in 1963 as an electrical contracting company. Today, this family-owned and operated business is a multi-faceted real estate firm that owns apartment communities, office parks and retail space. They also develop, construct and sell residential single-family homes.

They manage and lease all of their own properties. “One thing we do that we really don’t think of as unique, is that we enjoy more of a one-on-one relationship with our residents,” noted Jaqueline Rosetti Falvey, Vice President, Rosetti Properties. “Because we are a hands-on family-run business we know what goes on in each one of our communities and it helps us maintain excellent relationships with the people who live in our properties. I myself have rented the apartments to a lot of the people we do business with, so it makes for a much friendlier, less corporate atmosphere.”

Growth Minded
Rosetti Properties is more than just an owner of apartment communities. They also own over 425,000 square feet of Class A commercial space and develop and build single-family residential housing developments. They consistently look to add to their portfolio with the purpose of growing the business.

Stonegate, in North Greenbush, is their newest property. It was one of the first apartment communities in the area to offer underground heated garages and elevator access just steps away from your front door. In addition, they offer a generous amount of square footage, large closets, washer and dryers in the units, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and basic cable and internet. Its location is highly popular and the residents love living there.

Among Rosetti Properties’ new projects is West Shaker Run, located on Watervliet-Shaker Road.  The location has historical significance  in the Capital Region with  120 new apartments, two 36-unit buildings with underground parking and 48 garden-style apartments.

Family Connections
Jaqueline works side by side with her father, Richard, who started the business. She has been living and breathing the business since she was a little girl and visited job sites and apartments that her father was involved in while she was growing up. After graduating from Siena College, she worked for KeyBank before she married and raised her family. She decided to come into the family business in 2007.

Her husband, Chris Falvey, is also in the real estate business, The Falvey Real Estate Group, and they work down the hallway from each other. Over the past year her son, Matthew, joined the business and he is the first third-generation member of the family to be involved.

Jaqueline is a tireless worker who serves the community as a board member with Capital Bank, the Academy of the Holy Names, and she regularly supports St. Gregory’s School, the Albany Academy and several other local not-for-profit organizations. She has organized countless galas and has been an aggressive fundraiser for the schools her children have attended. If she gets involved with something, it’s always with a full-time commitment.

Doing What’s Needed
She has had a very up-close view of the business and leads by example. What is it like leading an organization in an industry that is dominated by men? “When you have a passion for what you do, and you own your own business, you tend not to give much thought to whether or not a woman really belongs in the business,” Jaqueline affirmed. “You just do what needs to be done in order to solve whatever problem you’re working on regardless of the situation. If I see a piece of trash blowing around a property, I’m going to pick it up myself and get rid of it because that’s what my father always does and that’s what needs to be done. If I’m conducting an interview for a maintenance worker or a property manager, I ask the same tough questions that anyone in my position would ask, whether they are male or female.”

With this in mind, it is no wonder clients feel they are being put first. “A wonderful statistic that speaks to our commitment is that 47 percent of our tenants are long term and have been with us five or more years,” noted Sacha Newkirk, Vice President, Property Management.
