Fresh Start Homes Michigan

1074 E Avon Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48307

My father, who was an area builder, nurtured my love for housing. The most important lesson he taught me was his "Client for life" philosophy.  He stood by the homes that he built, long after the required warranty period, ensuring that his customers were happy and safe.  In return his customers stood by him, returning to build their next homes.  I have enjoyed a very successful career in real estate and finance beginning in 1979.

I began as one of the first Re/Max brokers in Michigan.  In 2002 I retired from Re/Max with the honor of being inducted into the Re/Max Hall of Fame.  I then opened my own real estate brokerage, Emporio Casa Real Estate Services, for all your real estate needs, specializing in having everything under one roof.  In 2011 we launched Fresh Start Homes Michigan, helping families become homeowners who have been turned down for traditional mortgages.  Since then we continue to help our families, but we are also committed to helping families with traditional mortgages.  We believe there is no better investment than our local communities.  Fresh Start Homes Michigan partners with angel investors and licensed builders, in order to acquire homes and renovate them with our 25-point inspection.  By giving these homes a Fresh Start we add value to our local neighborhoods.  In addition our buyers are able to move into an existing home with a NEW home experience and with peace of mind.
