Dorothy Project

Dorothy House: Before and After

Dorothy House: Library/Office Before and After

Today I want to share with you some of the before and after pictures from one of the projects I completed with a current investor of mine. This is the Dorothy House, I was able to give my investor a 20% return in 3 months! The project was started on May 1st and completed June 15th. The house was purchased at $355m and SOLD for $530m! We were actually in Escrow for $54om just 4 days after putting it on the market and would have closed at the higher price, except for the HVCC and their appraisal practices. Read more about that in a future post!This project took 6 weeks to renovate and a total of 3 months from start to finish. My Investor was initially going to rent the property, but had an offer he couldn't refuse! We used Cazier Designs to design the project and as you can see it is an amazing transformation. For more information on Investor Projects and how I can help, please give me a call.

Introduction to Blog


As you all know, I have been actively pursuing Real Estate for the last few years. Along with the challenges of any new business, I have achieved some great successes. I wanted to share with you one of my most recent transactions that was very successful, and how I can lead you in the same direction.

A few months back, I presented one of my client’s a segment of the market I felt had strong potential for profit. After careful consideration of several market specific properties, we found the right home for $355K. He put close to $70K (19.72%) into the undercapitalized property which we just sold for $530K (24.71% ROI) just 3 short months later. I had the house in escrow just 4 days after it was listed. Like I mentioned, the transaction from purchase, capital improvement to sale, took us just about 3 months. The primary reason I am sharing this with you is no matter what you hear in the media, this is still a great time to purchase property in many segments of the market. Whether it is your first home or for investment purposes. We are still experiencing record lows with financing. With sound guidance and the financing available, there is no better time to buy than now.

If you are currently a homeowner and are looking to move up, this is a great time also. Call me to set up an appointment to find out how to get top dollar for your property that you are trying to sell, or to find out why trading is becoming so popular among homeowners. Instead of waiting to sell your property, find out how to trade it with one transaction, and move into the house that you have always wanted.

As a Real Estate Professional, I will always work my hardest for “you,” and be there for “you” the whole transaction. I am committed to fulfilling all of your Real Estate needs, with ethical and honorable regards. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions or know someone that I could be of service to don’t hesitate to call or email me.

Remember, “The best thank you is a referral.”
