Then, the tide turned. His contractors started getting overwhelmed and quality went down. So he started a remodeling company called Renovation Gurus. “We learned a lot of lessons that cost a lot of time and money when we brought the construction part in-house. We started to do rehabs in 3 weeks, where it was taking 6 weeks before. Relationships with our vendors got stronger. Our prices were getting cheaper. The team got better and more organized.” The company he created is owned by real estate investors, so they think like investors. Renovation Gurus specializes in working with Landlords, Flippers, Hedge Funds, and New and Experienced Investors. Renovation Gurus currently works exclusively with investors and offers a turnkey product from start to clean in a timely manner.
