I am a real estate developer, landlord and general contractor.

I work with clients to determine the feasibility of potential development projects.

REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT

We develop rental income projects
that range in size from ADUs to
apartment buildings.

ADDITIONAL
DWELLING UNITS

 I have built four ADU's in the past two years. I have experience working with the City, the architect, the banker and all
of the subcontractors.

Remodeling

Budget. Schedule. Quality. Relationship. 
I do my best to set realistic expectations in all of these categories.

Homes with new ADUs.

 

Every house in Portland is allowed to have an Accessory Dwelling Unit on it. The ADU can be in the basement, in the attic, attached to the house or detached. The four ADUs I have built recently (and own with a partner) are all 2 bedroom units of 800 square feet. They rent for about $1,900 each. It is not hard to build an ADU that gives positive cash flow the first month it is occupied. I have a team of professionals who make it easy.

Developing Real Estate

 

 

The Hutton Apartment Building. Eugene.

My investment partner, Gena Hutton, and I developed this 19-unit, 56-bedroom apartment building one block from the University of Oregon campus. We developed it with partners, kept it for five years and sold it in 2014.

Remodels

 

Remodeling is tough.

I strive to balance spending clients' money efficiently while getting the project
completed ASAP and keeping emotional distress to a minimum.

A Bumpout with Gas Fireplace and Cabinetry. Eugene.

This was a plain wall without a window. The client designed this bump out. Now, the gas fireplace is like a magnet for guests.

This condo was plain when my clients bought it. The architect had a vision and we made it real.
