I am a former entertainment attorney, now on a mission to make clear that a house “flip” does not need to be a four letter word. I treat each renovation as my own home, and to that end, I build spec houses that I hope introduce a level of quality in both the design and the execution that people are generally unaccustomed to seeing in a developer-built renovation. I want buyers to walk in the front door of my houses and know they want to buy them before they’ve even seen the rest of the house. My goal is that the connection between the person and the house should be instant and mysterious — an intangible quality that a buyer just *knows* they want to live in a house, even if they cannot identify the exact feature of the house that is drawing them to it.
