Stephen Sannicandro

OWNER OF SMC PROJECTS

STEPHEN SANNICANDRO

To an industry that can feel exasperating to even the most seasoned real estate owner, Stephen Sannicandro brings clarity, honesty, and perspective. He’s a natural problem solver, a creative thinker, and a born communicator, dedicated to helping prominent property owners achieve their goals as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

 

Stephen credits his broad range of proficiencies to his training as a musician. Says Stephen, “Music teaches you how to become proficient at something. I remember a day I couldn’t play the guitar, couldn’t make it do what my mind could hear. I worked daily, practicing, writing, and playing until I was able to play the music inside me. What I realized is that once you know how to get good at something, you can apply that to any other facet of life.”

 

Stephen began his career in 2002 at a mid-sized, high-end interior construction firm in New York City. While there he learned the core principals of construction operations: estimating, budgeting, value engineering, and project management. His drive for knowledge led to a move to Lend Lease and then Plaza Construction, where he continued his professional development. He applied this knowledge to larger-scale high-rise construction in the residential sector. 

 

In 2016 Stephen formed SMC Projects, a boutique real estate acquisition, development, and construction firm dedicated providing highly personalized owner representation and construction management to discerning clientele.
