Chief Executive Officer
Joseph Colaluca is the founder and Chief Operating Officer of Strive and its affiliated companies.
Joe started his journey to redefine Rhode Island Real estate as a senior at Providence College, where he acquired his first property. Each day, before and after class, he would renovate the home, learning along the way the foundational skills that would lead him through the renovation of many more projects.
Joe founded the firm in 2013 after experiencing firsthand the Rhode Island luxury market as a realtor with Coldwell Banker. Since then, Joe has developed, repositioned, leased, and managed millions of dollars in residential and commercial assets. Joe’s real estate philosophy stems from his self-starter mindset, where no project is too ambitious, no transaction is too complex, and relationships are the cornerstone of any successful acquisition. He emphasizes broad-based real estate knowledge and a genuine commitment to ensuring thoughtful quality solutions to drive long-term asset value.
Joe believes in being hands-on with each project Strive undertakes. He is the first in and last to leave.
Strive lofts is a collection of 56 thoughtfully designed residences for rent on the border of Providence's Olneyville and Federal Hill neighborhoods.
