In January of 2019, DJ and James were looking to purchase a home to begin a whole new chapter in life. After searching, viewing and bidding on a significant number of homes, only to be outbid quickly, they realized that they were not the only consumers experiencing this situation. There was a serious housing shortage. The discussion turned from looking for a home to what it would take to build their own home… DJ had built her prior home and James had built a significant number of homes for other people, which gave them the knowledge to build their own home. But wait! If they could build a home for themselves, why wouldn’t they put their knowledge and skills to work to assist others that were experiencing the same pain points with trying to find a new home to purchase?
After researching the housing market in Kitsap County and the reasons for the housing shortage, they quickly realized that they were in prime territory for building homes for others, as well. They took the advice of a powerful coach and heard the call to action. Working long and arduous hours, they started taking action towards their new dream. They burned the midnight oil creating targets and action plans to ensure success. They landed their first deal on land, which spurred the development of their first 5 lot short plat. Within a few short months, an auction house was won and their flagship remodel home was born. In the first 6 months of starting their business they completed a total of 21 additional projects. As with any start up there were a few minor bumps and opportunities to learn more. More about business, more about leading teams, more about themselves.
