I have been a Northville resident for over 20 years and certainly understand the surrounding areas and current property values. Based upon my real estate experience, I am confident that I can assist my clients in any capacity whether they are buying or selling real estate for the first time or whether they have bought and/or sold property in the past. My experience covers a broad range of real estate related business activities spanning the past 30 years which include the following:
Private Capital Lender for the past 30 years (CEO, President and Owner of Construction Loan One) providing residential construction lending to thousands of local contractors and homeowners during my career until my retirement in 2016. As a lender, this career has provided me the opportunity to be well educated and experienced in real estate law, foreclosure law, mortgage products, title insurance and property survey analysis. In addition to my experience as a Lender, I have personally purchased, leased and sold residential homes for the past 10 years (President and Owner of Drury Construction and Development LLC). This experience has provided me with considerable insight into the entire process of locating, acquiring, leasing, and liquidating residential properties. These experiences have also provided an understanding of the necessary documents and forms required by Michigan law including local Municipality requirements. As a property owner in numerous housing associations, I have had direct dealings with homeowner associations and association management companies (including serving on a few Association Boards) ranging from small associations with as few as 20 homeowners to associations with over 500 homeowners. Prior to purchasing a home in an association, it is important to understand the financial strength of the association, costs and bylaws. Lastly, my experience extends to acquiring vacant land and building residential homes on a Build-to-Suit basis (Drury Construction and Development LLC). Based upon my experience in many aspects of real estate, I believe that this will create a simple, easy and comforting experience for my clients.
