LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A young man’s painstaking research has given a big advantage to the Livingston County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) and the business of real estate in the Genesee Valley.
Daniel Foley, a senior at SUNY Geneseo, researched properties in Livingston County during his summer internship with the IDA. Foley also contacted property owners and real estate brokers in Livingston County to compile their combined data in a condensed folder, which is proving to be a very useful resource for the county, and is available for use through the IDA.
“A lot of my research I did by using loopnet.com, which features commercial real estate listings and has over 8 million members,” said Foley, 23. “But I also had to contact property owners and real estate brokers for information that wasn’t listed. A lot of times I heard ‘well what’s listed is what’s available.’ It really tested my research and communications skills, which will definitely translate into gainful employment.”
Foley added that he is in his last semester at SUNY and after graduation will continue on a waiting job as an inside sales associate with Gallup Poll in Washington, D.C.
“The intern work we’ve received in the past few years is phenomenal,” said Eric Gott, IDA board member. “I can’t imagine the work they’ve put into the resources they create.”
