Zara Zae Giganti-Stover
Few Real Estate Development professionals rival Zara Stover’s intrinsic understanding of the development process. Over the course of her nearly 20-year career, Zara has developed over a billion dollars in mixed-use development projects on both East and West coasts along with select works in the Mid-West. Holding three advanced degrees in industry-related professions along with a CA General Contracting License, she excels at creating one of a kind infill projects that can adapt to, and engage with the people and places who call them home. As Principal at the InDev Companies, she oversees Land Acquisition, Entitlement and Permit Processing, Overall Project Design, Debt and Equity Placement, Construction Project Management, Project Estimating and Construction Implementation. Mrs. Stover’s work clearly showcases that when the designers and builders are the developers and decision makers, a more valuable building is the result.
