Live in Luxury and Create Wealth with Your Home!

Glenn Mendell, Real Estate Broker
Since 1988


When I bought my first property in 1985, my goal was to have a home with no common walls and a yard.  To me this was luxury but when it came time to sell, the only way to create wealth from that home was to remodel it.  The plan worked and the strategy has remained for over 50 homes I have owned, 25 being remodels.  Whether it was my family home or a fix & flip, it was going to be a great place to live with high resale value. 


Since 1988, this focus has been shared with over 1,200 of my real estate clients.  


Luxury & Wealth with your home can be achieved in three ways.  1) When you buy, making sure the location is what you want, the resale can stand up in a down market, and the home is either turn-key to meet your needs, or has the bones to become that.  2) Remodeling your existing home so it becomes what you want, while doing it in a way that improves value.  3) When selling, a preparation process that maximizes your home’s appeal.  Timing the market and a customized marketing plan.
