What do you feel today? And what will the future appear to be? 

At the age of 90 I’m healthy and robust! I spoke with a medium who said I’d be the age of 102! I’d like to write a new book in the next few years. I’m also trying to find someone younger who I could teach and help me with the running around to do the rezoning work.

When you first started your business Have you learned something that was particularly useful or beneficial? 

I’ve learned a lot in my many years of rezoning properties. Most people are looking in the wrong areas when searching for properties to purchase or develop. Instead look for areas that are empty and undeveloped.

What tools or platforms are you using to run your company? 

I do not use any tools or platforms for my business. I rely on my interpersonal skills, my ability to spot opportunities and capitalize when I see opportunities. My ability to communicate with others and the desire to assist other people are the tools I use and my platform.

What are some of the top books or podcasts? Or other sources?

I’ve always loved reading from an early age. Freud, Russian novels come to my mind. Regarding his profession I don’t think it is necessary to read books. In the beginning, I met an excellent real estate professional who was much older than I am. I learned from him many things about the business of real estate. I also purchased property from him, so it was a win-win situation.

Tips for other entrepreneurs looking to start or are just beginning their journey?

Find someone working within the real estate industry. If you do not know anyone, contact several people and get acquainted with them to determine what kind of person you are. Make it an opportunity for both parties in which you learn from them , and you could also assist them. Also, do not follow the standard methods to do things.

What’s your story as well as how you came up with this idea? *

I was born and was raised in Jerusalem. Since a very young age, I was fascinated by religion and enjoyed the tale of how Paul/Saul occupied the city and developed it. I’ve always been interested in electronics, and I had an uncle living in New Jersey who could help me. I emigrated to the U.S., and after having completed my education, I was offered an electronic job. In this position, I assisted in the reprocessing of an operational device that produced one unit, which was later expanded to 24 units. These two instances stick out in my head where I realized that I could modify something to improve it, thereby increasing its production and efficiency, as well as the way it helped other people.

Define the steps involved in starting the business. 

Rezoning involves a number of primary steps. The first step is to research the piece of land you want to buy to rezon by studying the type of land it is located in, the type of schools within the vicinity, nearby businesses and so on. The next step is to go to city council meetings and meet individuals like council members and the mayor, as well as the neighbors. If you are able to meet these individuals prior to the meeting and assist them in helping achieve their goals They may be more likely to assist you. For instance, I purchased an area of 20 acres for a bargain because of an incinerator nearby. By constructing a wall and beautifying the property I was able to conceal the things that most people find ugly. I also negotiated with neighbors to get their approval before making use of 1 acre of the property to improve the size of their property.

Since the launch, what’s been the most effective strategy to draw and keep customers? (or from other companies/investors who are supportive of you)*

It’s my ability to connect with people, especially women which has been a huge help in my business and in life. I’m a person of good will who has always enjoyed people. I was raised that way and it wasn’t something that was instilled to me. I also enjoy charity work and enjoy helping those who are less fortunate.

After borrowing $30,000 from a friend of his father to finance his first real estate deal, Bash officially became a millionaire. Since then, he has been involved with major planning and zoning projects and building and developing a number of shopping centers, hundreds of homes, office buildings, water and sewer systems, and nearly 3,000 apartment units and condos throughout New York State. He helped to fund Danny Thomas’s annual telethon for St. Jude’s Hospital which raises $10-20 million per year. He also participated in building the Laniado Hospital in Netanya, Israel, and is one of the founders and contributors to the Jerusalem Great Synagogue. In addition, Bash has contributed $1 million to Ben Gurian University in Israel.
