Ben Sietsma

Before starting Honeycrisp Ventures, Ben was a Partner at Rockford Development Group, a nationally recognized development company. During Ben's tenure at Rockford, the team completed development projects of over $50,000,000 annually. During this time, Ben created a niche in executing value add investments through existing, underutilized real estate assets and began personally investing in projects.

He was heavily involved in the day-to-day operations – overseeing Property Management, negotiating leases, investor reporting, and tenant relations. Ben also refined his financial modeling capabilities and deal-sourcing techniques during this time. Ben worked closely on all property types, including raw land, industrial, office, retail, and multifamily properties.
