Headquartered in the rapidly growing Charlotte metropolitan statistical area (MSA) of North Carolina, PresPro is a residential single-family and multi-family home builder. The business’s primary focus is the first-time homebuyer and first move-up markets, including constructing homes for “build-to-rent” investors and individuals who are moving out of rentals and purchasing their first home. The company also offers new construction custom home services.
Inc. Magazine recognized PresPro as one of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in the United States in 2014 and one of the 5,000 fastest in 2018, 2019, and 2020. In 2019, the company ranked as the #709 Fastest-Growing Business in the U.S., #34 Fastest-Growing Construction Company in the U.S., #6 Charlotte, and #18 in North Carolina. The company was also recognized as a member of the Charlotte Business Journal’s Fast 50 in 2014, 2017, 2018, and 2020 ranking as the #1 fastest growing company in the Charlotte Metropolitan area in 2017.
PresPro is in a prime position to continue its accelerated growth, having identified five housing markets within 150 miles that are undersupplied in addition to the growing demand for homes in the Charlotte MSA.
PresPro classifies homes into four categories: First-Time Homebuyer, First Move-Up, Mid-Market, and Luxury-Custom. The demand in the First-Time Homebuyer and First Move-Up sectors is strong, consistently averaging over 85% of homes built and 75% of gross revenue. With this in mind, the company has emphasized its focus on the $325k and below price point, further bolstering its already solid financial position. At this price point, PresPro is able to create velocity with its cash and turn equity two and a half times per year due to its experienced management and efficient build cycles.
PresPro offers more than 50 different home plans. Architecture styles include craftsman, contemporary, modern, and traditional homes. The company also offers plans for duplexes, townhomes, and small multi-family buildings.
Within the Luxury-Custom sector, PresPro contracts with individuals to build high-end homes with forward-thinking designs. PresPro’s wide variety of quality, modern designs differentiate the company from its local and national competitors.
2020 SALES VOLUME
The company has had success growing its new construction services by purchasing land to develop its own subdivisions. The subdivisions are constructed to include homes within specified price points and home plans. Approximately 80% of homes built are speculative, 15% presale, and 5% custom. Speculative homes still offer custom elements, allowing buyers to select wall colors, fixtures, and additional finishes.
Owners Josh Collins and John Sears are both experienced entrepreneurs having established numerous successful companies dating back to 2004.
Founded in 2009 during the housing market recession, PresPro was positioned to fill the affordable housing gap for first-time homebuyers in the Charlotte MSA. The gap was created when national homebuilders divested from the area during the recession. With an abundance of foreclosures in the region and across the country, the company was dedicated to servicing the financial industry’s needs, reconstructing distressed properties for sale or rent.
Through relationships Collins and Sears forged with banks, capital groups, and asset management companies in the real estate owned (REO) industry, PresPro expanded its reconstruction services nationwide. The company’s given name is short for Preservation Professional Services, derived from “property preservation,” a term banks use for maintaining distressed real estate assets.
As the company grew and the economy rebounded, PresPro expanded operations from focusing on home reconstruction to ground-up new home construction and later launched a custom home division. The company later launched a custom home division. The owners note that PresPro has taken a new meaning, referring to its name as being short for Prestigious Properties.
Now, after over a decade in the construction industry, PresPro is positioned for expansion. In 2020, the Executive Team crystallized their Core Values  and Purpose , which quickly became an invaluable reference point for the company’s direction, decisions, and operations. With the visionary leadership of this Executive Team and the addition of Project Managers and Office Staff, PresPro is prepared to meet the demand of the industry.
