Steven A. Ornellas

I caught the Real Estate "bug" back in 1993 when I decided to act as my own General Contractor during a remodel of my home. Between 1993 and now I also managed to start up two technology businesses. Roadpulse, Inc. provided realtime traffic data to ground-based shipping companies like UPS and FedEx. Unfortunately, we had to shelve Roadpulse, but it was a fantastic experience nonetheless. After Roadpulse, I helped to co-found BlueTop, Inc., a provider of enterprise-level Construction Management software solutions for residential builders.
