GREEN VET HOMES - 708-231-0100

About The Owner

I bought my first rental property in 2006 while serving as a 2LT in the US Army. After that, I knew real estate was going to be something I would do for the rest of my life.

Since then, I have continued to purchase quality rental properties, as well as many many fixer-uppers that my team and I have rehabbed over the years.

In 2011, I left active duty military and started my first full-time property rehabbing company, iCandy Homes, with two of my good friends. Over the following 4 years, we rehabbed over 70 properties, transforming them from outdated fixer-uppers into magnificent works of art.

In 2016, I set out to form a new company leveraging everything I'd learned over the previous 10 years. I wanted to continue purchasing and rehabbing properties, but also be able to serve a purpose that I'm passionate about: supporting veterans and their families. Thus, Green Vet Homes was born.

I'm blessed to be able to do what I love everyday. At the same time, I'm able to improve local communities and support veterans. I'm thankful for the experiences I've had, and for the people who've always supported me throughout this process.

About Green Vet Homes

Kitchen B&A

A Company Born Out of Purpose

When I started Green Vet Homes, I leveraged the lessons learned from my previous experience buying, rehabbing, and selling. I sat down and wrote out what I felt were the most important aspects, and I dedicated that my new company would operate based upon these factors.

One major factor was the use of systems to make everything from the home purchasing process to the quality of rehab work as simplified as possible for everyone involved. There are thousands of factors that go into purchasing and rehabbing a home, so it's extremely important to make that process straight-forward and organized for sellers and buyers alike.

It was also important to me that Green Vet Homes created a win-win situation for all parties involved. Buyers and sellers should feel happy and/or relieved with their property is in the hands of GVH. Contractors should feel that the hard work they put in is properly rewarded. Tenants should feel that they're renting the house of their dreams for a fair price. For all of these reasons, I've committed that Green Vet Homes will always provide our partners with equal or greater value than what GVH receives in return.

Finally, the last aspects were two of the most important, which is how they wound up in our brand name. Green Vet Homes is committed to using green, sustainable products whenever we possibly can, and also committed to donating a portion of all profits to support veterans who have served this great country.

At GVH, we are equally proud of both the principles we stand upon and the quality of our products.
