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.
