RARE Development was founded in 2012 by Remi Aftandilian, an entrepreneur and experienced real estate professional looking for residential development opportunities throughout the Greater Boston Area. In order to provide a luxury product while minimizing costs, Remi created a partnership with Brian Diblasi, the founder and CEO of Credere Ventures. As a seasoned general contractor, Brian has established a strong brand for his company alongside his team of highly skilled carpenters, sub-contractors and project managers. They have worked very hard to build a reputation of providing an efficient, dependable product of superior quality.

In 2014, after the successful development of two single family luxury homes in Newton, MA and one 5 unit Multi-family in Medford, MA, Remi and Brian decided to bring on Jonathan Caldwell as a third partner. Jonathan brings with him 8 years of investment analysis experience and following the completion of his MBA, he was eager to help RARE Development build a business that would take them to the next level of real estate development.
