Dee Loves Renovating Old Homes
Posted by Emma Weldon on November 18, 2016
“I see myself as a master planner. I am at my best when managing a number of projects. I enjoy teaching best practices and sharing with others what has worked for me in the past. But I’m especially proud of the positive atmosphere I maintain amongst my team. Our clients see our passion—they see that we love what we do.” – Dee
Dee is a very talented conductor, the maestro at the helm of our many projects. She beautifully orchestrates the timing, the budgets and those who work on her team.
She was born into this industry. Under the tutelage of her father who developed land, who built spec homes and provided mortgages, she learned firsthand. Upon his retirement in the late 90s, she expanded into custom-built construction, managing projects for various builders, mainly multi-million dollar homes in the mountains of (Georgia and North Carolina) and on the coast of (Florida, Georgia, Alabama).
She was called upon by construction firms to share her expertise in process management and system set-ups. Rolls Royce caught wind of her management skills and nabbed her to orchestrate annual events held at private estates. A renowned theatre designer brought in Dee to help with sound isolation. Several projects at Atlantic Station filled her time in 2012, including the construction of the tennis courts and player facilities which house the BB&T tournament.
But renovating old homes has always been her real love. Their quirks and individual personalities intrigue her and challenge her. Bringing life back into the neighborhoods of her hometown, Atlanta, are paramount to her. In her free time, she lends her management skills for the good of others. She chairs the Doggies on the Catwalk event which benefits Canine Assistants, a non-profit organization which trains and provides service dogs for those with special needs.
Home Rebuilders is quite honored to have Dee as part of their team, the leader of their orchestra.
