Curtis is a long time Berkeley resident and Cal Alum who worked for over 25 years in the vibrant Bay Area biotechnology industry. Remodeling his own home sparked his interest in the local residential real estate market, and gave him a desire for a new approach to real estate and community development. With a vision and an eye for design, Curtis began purchasing and rejuvenating homes that were regarded as difficult or problematic by others. His vision has resulted in numerous successful renovations, and enhanced neighborhoods throughout the region.
Although Curtis has a keen eye on every detail of his projects, and it is his collaboration with a hand-picked team of local architects, and contractors that makes his vision come to life. He first worked with his architects on the remodel of his own home. From their first meeting, the architect team and Curtis clicked because of their shared vision and sensibilities. Each Bay Reach Homes project is different and has unique challenges. Our goal is to keep a fresh approach in re-working a home’s flow for today’s families, while maintaining the integrity and history of each property.
Curtis’ general contractor is a Berkeley resident who is also an old friend, and has worked on some of the finer Bay Area homes for over 30 years. The experience he brings to each project is invaluable and has helped Bay Reach Homes maintain its high standard. Bay Reach Homes is rounded out by an administrative team who support operations and marketing. Through this team’s collaboration on several projects, a set of best practices has been developed that allows them to work efficiently, make the selling process easier for their clients, and deliver beautiful, homes with character.
Every project developed by Bay Reach Homes reflects their attention to detail and commitment to quality, as well as the belief that communities are joined together by homes and the people who live in them. Most importantly, we do not consider ourselves house flippers; we care for the properties we rejuvenate as if we were going to live there. We strive to add value to the community through fair transactions, and taking pride in rehabilitating homes that would otherwise be abandoned or derelict. Bay Reach Homes seeks to enrich the East Bay one home at a time.
