Pete at work.

Pete created Rethinc following 12 + years at SSH Real Estate, a Philadelphia-based commercial brokerage and investment firm. It is that experience together with an appreciation for sharp spatial use that fuels the company's philosophy.  Over the past decade, Pete has brokered hundreds of transactions working with corporations, start-ups, nonprofits, partnerships and investors in structuring various types of contracts from commercial leases to investment real estate acquisitions and dispositions.  As an investor himself, Pete has selectively grown a portfolio of real estate ranging from small multi-unit assets to partnership interests in larger mixed-use projects. Having the perspective of both a broker and investor helps put clients in a uniquely advantageous position.

HENRY THE DOG

HENRY, THE DOG.

Henry at work.

N/A does not work. Henry is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and is so cute that he can basically do and get away with anything he wants. Although born in 2011, Henry looks like a permanent puppy and despite his desire to cuddle and be around people every waking hour, when the scent of food enters the room, his dark passenger often emerges.

LYJA THE OTHER DOG

LYJA, THE OTHER DOG

Lyja at work.

Lyja brings a wealth of experience chasing squirrels around the neighborhood, sleeping and ignoring everyone’s personal space.
In a previous role and as a puppy, Lyja spent time in a city shelter dreaming and masterminding a plan of seducing the perfect human victim. It didn’t take long. While her humble beginnings have taught Lyja to greatly appreciate her relationships and at times proceed cautiously, she is now living the Pit Bull dream and has access to more tennis balls than she knows what to do with.
