When you create your login and access the investor portal, your journey begins with the Henderson Investment Group. You’ll have access to our Business Development Consultant Brandon Davis and our real estate investment sales team to assist you with your investment goals and buying criteria. Our proprietary system will email you available properties based on your pre-determined criteria. When ready to consider properties, the Real Estate Sales team and Renovations crew will be there.

The Technology Tools we developed serve to bring property options directly to your inbox as soon as they’re listed with the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Properties are pulled based on your criteria stored in the custom-built database. The personal login you created grants access to exclusive areas of the website. The Renovations team uses an online-based system to conduct pre-inspections and generate an estimate of renovations. Your designated Henderson Properties sales agent utilizes a secure online-based technology for managing the documents of the sales process.

Your Real Estate Sales Team is committed to researching, investigating, and negotiating deals on your behalf. Our realtors provide detailed information on available properties and the surrounding areas so your team can make informed decisions. Our agents are licensed in both North Carolina and South Carolina, expanding the reach of available properties. The real estate agent fee is paid by the seller, so you do not have to pay for sales agent services.

Your Renovations team includes a dedicated Renovations Project Manager supported by Specialists, Technicians, and specialty contractors. We have vetted contractors for every area of rehabilitating a property, and have the ability to gauge costs and execute projects quickly. We complete cost-effective renovations and deliver rent-ready projects on time and within budget to maximize your rental income potential.

As you consider potential investment properties, the Renovations team can conduct a Preliminary Inspection and Rehab Estimate to determine estimated repairs and costs to make the property rent ready. The preliminary inspection and rehab estimate will be sent to you and your Henderson Properties Realtor to review.

Meet The Team.
