Development Experts?

It must say something about the nature of real estate development that many successful developers who have built large businesses from almost nothing do not have formal real estate qualifications. There’s a recent court case involving the billionaire real estate developer brothers Nick and Christian Candy and Mark Holyoake (who’s just a multi-millionaire real estate developer/investor).   Both Nick Candy and Mark Holyoake were at the University of Reading together.  Nick Candy did Human Geography and Mark Holyoake did a business degree.  Maybe a real estate education at Reading is a barrier to being an entrepreneurial developer?  Makes you think.
