HOME BRAND PROPERTIES, INC (HBP) grew out of a desire to make Real Estate Investing available to everyone.
With our back ground in construction management, we began by purchasing and rehabbing single family homes one at a time.
We have since grown into multiple rehabs in multiple areas, rehabbing multi family projects, and ground up development.
It was during 2008 that we turned our attention to bank foreclosure services (better known as property preservation). HBP serviced, remodeled, and prepared for market over 1,000 properties for banks, private lending institution, and government agencies.
Through the relationships developed during this time, HBP was able to purchase properties at significant discounts, thus enabling them to grow the opportunity for others to join and invest with us.
Yuko began investing in Real Estate 10 years ago. She moved to the United States from Japan in 1997 to study landscape design, and after designing and creating over 250 projects , realized that owning real estate was far better than maintaining it; thus began a pursuit that would become her passion and career. Though she lives in the US, Yuko visits Japan often and is well known to Japanese people as an expert in U.S Real Estate. She provides seminars and has published 2 books about investing in the United States. (Both in Japanese).
During her off time, Yuko enjoys working in her garden, traveling, and spending time with her family. Hiking and cooking are among her favorite pastimes, and she loves spending time with her husband, her three boys, and Lucy (her “furry” daughter).
Yuko looks forward to the future as HBP continues to grow.
As CFO, Mark is active in the day to day workings of HBP, and also heads up acquisitions and construction. His background in business and construction spans the last 30 years, with an emphasis on Real Estate investing for the past 10 years. With his wife Yuko and a fantastic team, Mark is constantly looking for new opportunities in Real Estate. He continues to look for projects involving residential units, and is able to acquire these through his network of associates.
When Mark is not working, he spends time with his family camping, traveling, and supporting his three boys in their sports and other interests.
Mark is very excited to be involved with HBP, and will continue to enjoy its careful growth for years to come.
