Taking the Stress Out of Distressed!

We specialize in properties that have failed one or more REAC Inspections.  We focus your resources so you are not spending money on low priority repairs at the expense of high point low cost repairs.

We develop a REAC1 Plan of Action.  The Plan may include a Pre-REAC inspection and or repairing none, some or all of the deficiencies depending on your needs, capabilities and budget.  We provide construction services BELOW local contractor rates.

We risk a good percentage of our fees on your success including doing your appeal for free if you didn't get the target score.  We know your needs from not just being in business for many years but because it is much more than a job we are not happy unless you are.  

Our well-vetted well-equipped teams of REAC Defect Repair Specialists are located in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, New York City, and Florida. They can be at your location with short notice and will stay until the job is done and done right.  We carry the proper insurance, respect your property, and with a minimum disruption to your residents' comfort.

Our personal service, competitive prices, overall value, and Code of Ethics are why our customers won't go anywhere else.

Alert!

REAC has made important changes to the physical inspection protoco January 1, 2013. To learn about the changes, and more order my book REAC Inspections Achieving Success Without Breaking the Bank.

REAC inspections regularly strike fear into the hearts of housing property owners/agencies because the consequences of a poor outcome can be serious. After all, low-scoring properties must endure more frequent inspections. And really poor performers can even lose their HUD funding.

But you can quell your fears with a thorough understanding of the inspection process, what inspectors are looking for, and what defects will cost you the most points. Gain these insights—and more—in The REAC Inspection Handbook, a special report brought to you by REAC inspections expert Hank Vanderbeek and editorial staff of Assisted Housing Alert.
