Vision

Point B Properties is committed to being the preferred choice of the informed consumer. We see each new project as a chance to improve lives through innovation, quality construction, and smart design. Our HealthSmart collection came about with this in mind.

We live to create spaces you’ll love.

 

Quality Construction

How do you really judge construction quality? After a project is built, even the best inspector can only access a fraction of the space. To demonstrate our uncompromising commitment to quality (and to help you sleep at night), we ensure each new project is tested by a professional third-party consultant and given a HERS rating, which is analogous to the Miles Per Gallon information provided with a new car purchase. Projects we’ve been involved with have exceeded ENERGY STAR standards by at least 50%, and were 20% more efficient than the average LEED-certified building.

Smart Design

We strive to marry the trendy with the timeless to create a clean, classic feel that you will appreciate for years to come. Resource efficiency (lower utility bills), functionality, and healthy living (e.g. cleaner air) are top priorities. The result is a an environment that will improve your quality of life.

In addition to the above, we implement innovations like flex rooms that let you change your space to suit your needs. Because they often have separate entrances and en suite baths, they could even be rented out for extra income. Other uses include a den, in-law unit, live-in nanny, or home office.

 

Brokerage

By popular demand, we use our decades of experience to help owners sell or develop their property. From underwriting current financials to evaluating the highest and best use to design, permitting, and hiring your dream team of professionals, we can help you every step of the way. If you’re building or selling a commercial property, we can help you determine if your rents are at or below market as well as recommend upgrades that would produce a favorable return on investment. Whether you own an empty lot or a building, we will make sure you get the most out of it.

He started tinkering in the family wood shop as a kid and went on to graduate with a dual degree in Architecture and Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2003. In 2009 he received a scholarship to attend business school at Indiana University, graduating in 2011 with a double major in Finance and Management. He bought his first property in 2001 and formed the company in 2004 while still working full-time. He was written up in BuiltWorlds in 2015 for his early achievements in energy-efficient building, and continues to stay abreast of the latest design and building science innovations; including obtaining his LEED and NAR Green Designee certifications. He brings a practical, technical, and theoretical perspective to every project.
