#408: Build-to-Rent, Land Entitlement, and so much more!- with Kavitha Baratakke

Kavitha is a real estate expert.

Kavitha is the Founder of Cherry Street Investments, an Austin-based firm that focuses on multifamily, build-to-rent, and senior care facilities. Prior to real estate, she spent almost 20 years as a Technology Professional working for IBM in various roles across Software Development, Customer Services, Partner Relations, and Technical Account Management.


“There’s a whole bunch of little things involved before we can take land and make it a buildable piece of land—what we call ‘shovel ready.’”

“The first phase is the entitlement phase, the second phase is the horizontal development, and the third phase is actually the vertical development where people actually see something happening. So before that we’re just moving dirt around in the second phase and in the first phase we don’t do anything…it’s just about approvals.”
