9780692397725: It Is What It Is: A True Manhattan Real Estate Nightmare With a Silver Lining

Deep in a hellish real estate fiasco nightmare and plagued with obstacle upon obstacle, Colin and Pam Rath persevered and managed to crawl to safety. It started with obtaining the right from the city to renovate a single-room occupancy rent-controlled "transient hotel" brownstone building and only got worse. From financial problems of a construction project gone haywire to the tune of $13.5 million, to contractor woes, accidents on the construction site, the disaster of a fraudulently installed foundation, falsified reports, a corrupt and antiquated Department of Buildings, political interference, and numerous lawsuits, their real estate project and personal residence was foreclosed, leaving them $13 million in debt.

Nevertheless, they continued to hang on to their dreams of Manhattan real estate development and of a global sailing adventure with their children. In a surprising legal development in 2014, their foreclosure was dropped and their multi-million-dollar condo became theirs again, free and clear.

The Rath's story of tragedy and triumph will inspire anyone with a dream and prove that the flames of failure don't have to destroy your vision; rather, they can toughen it, like tempered steel.

From the Inside Flap:

Pam and Colin Rath, a young Manhattan couple swept up in the housing bubble, borrow a small fortune to build a cutting-edge "green" luxury condo complex out of a crumbling rent controlled brownstone, only to find themselves facing a series of staggering setbacks while the housing bubble crashed.

*****

In the early 2000s, real estate in Manhattan was booming, showing annual double-digit appreciation for the next decade. By the middle of the housing boom, Pam and Colin finished the full restoration of their brownstone, and their building had appreciated by over 700 percent! So what did they do next? They bought the adjacent broken-down building in order to develop the first green-cantilevered condominium complex in Manhattan.

At the time, banks were throwing mortgages around like comedy club coupons in Times Square. It seemed un-American not to accept some of that money. Like many others, Pam and Colin got caught up in the housing boom. Green design was the new obsession of the architectural world and their project was all that and a tank of biofuel, incorporating two geothermal wells, passive solar radiant heating, reclaimed natural materials, modular construction, a car lift to a private garage, and Nana doors. It was the green dream on steroids!

But then it all came crashing down. This is their story of survival and perseverance that brought a silver lining in the end.

About the Author:

Colin Rath is a successful entrepreneur, Manhattan real estate developer, and author. He grew up in Connecticut and started his first business--a house painting and refurbishing company--while still in college. After graduation, he took over the reins at Better Lists, Inc, a busy direct mail and fulfillment company, and his leadership propelled the firm into a multi-million dollar business. In 1998 he changed careers and obtained a Series 7 license. He bought a seat on the Chicago MidAm trading floor and traded with his own money. Eight years later he decided to branch out into Manhattan real estate development. He bought his first project for $700,000 and sold it nine years later for a whopping $7,000,000.

Pamela Harvey-Rath is a marketing, fashion, and merchandising professional. Originally from Kentucky, she was one of the first "Jordache girls" in the 1980s. Thanks to her excellent marketing instincts and keen eye and ear for public taste and trend, she has been called upon to do product development for top fashion companies.

Together the Rath's possess a combined experience and knowledge of development projects, the banking and construction industries, marketing, public relations, Manhattan experience and insights, along with a willingness to take risks and an unusual level of commitment and self-motivation. These factors led them to the successful completion of their green dream project and to its subsequent silver lining.
