It all started over a decade ago two colleagues discussing real estate investing during lunch break. Cem and Semih's discussion turned into a business plan, and the two purchased their first brownstone property.
The building was in rough shape and they did a gut renovation of the property soon after. The success of the first engagement pushed them to acquire more and more properties over time. In the meantime, Cem got his real estate license and became a full-time real estate professional.
More properties meant more tenants to manage. Cem and Semih formed a team of real estate professionals, lawyers, plumbers, electricians, handymen, and cleaning crews to support their rental units. Over time friends and family members asked them to manage their properties since they already had a team for managing their properties.
Suddenly they found themselves doing property management 90% of the time and decided to start My Property Man.
Cem and Semih have over a decade of experience rehabbing, flipping, renting, and managing properties in Brooklyn and currently living in Bed-Stuy.
