Frankfort foreclosure fixer-upper transforms into finely detailed dream home (PART 2)

April 10, 2010


Since they took delivery of the fully remodeled home a few weeks, ago, Brooke Moll and her family are enjoying the perks of their new Frankfort digs.

“We adore this community and the family friendly neighborhood,” said Brooke, who had her children start school last fall in Frankfort schools to avoid having to transfer them in the middle of the academic year. “Our homesite features big, mature trees, and we often catch site of colorful deer and wildlife on our property.”

Brooke’s husband Randy noted that collaborating with Distinctive Remodelers’ Mike Caroll and his team of professionals on this undertaking “was a pleasure. Mike gave us sound advice, and his crew always conducted themselves with the highest level of integrity. He regularly kept in steady communication with us and ensured our satisfaction on each phase. Plus, their level of craftsmanship completely exceeded our expectations.”

Mike said he hopes that the moral to the Molls’ story can be an inspirational one to other home shoppers on the fence about whether or not to put their eggs in the foreclosure basket.

“Purchasing a foreclosed home can be a wise investment, so long as you go in with your eyes open, stay within your budget and recruit the right professionals to update the house,” he noted. “There are some tremendous bargains out there to be claimed, if you dot your ‘I’s and cross your ‘T’s properly.”

Mike said that he and Distinctive Companies Chairman/CEO Bryan Nooner founded Distinctive Remodelers based primarily on rising demand from past home buyer clients seeking to modernize or expand their existing residences.

“We have a large base of satisfied, loyal customers from over the years who often contact us for future projects,” said Bryan. “We would often get calls and requests from many of these past buyers who wanted to hire us for projects like finishing a basement, adding a room or reworking a kitchen. Instead of turning down these requests, we created Distinctive Remodelers, which offers partial or whole-house renovation services throughout the suburbs.”

The firm provides a vast array of renovation projects, including room build-outs, second-level additions, home theater room installations, basement finishing and kitchen makeovers — with no residential job too large for Distinctive Remodelers to tackle. Plus, all work is backed by a full warranty.

Distinctive Remodelers draws on the built-in advantages of being a part of Distinctive Companies — a successful, established area business with 20-plus years of collective experience.

“We’re familiar with these homeowners and what they’re looking for, and we know the territory we cover like the backs of our hands,” said Bryan. “Moreover, we have a highly skilled crew in place that we’ve added to, as well as an unparalleled reputation for outstanding quality and value.”

Distinctive Companies already has a 3,000-square-foot, full-service design studio, making it simple and convenient for remodeling customers to choose their exterior and interior product, finish and material selections. From cabinet pulls and plumbing fixtures to flooring options, door handles, appliances and trim packages, everything is there under one roof. Homeowners can browse through plentiful wall and floor displays, samples and swatches.

Also, Distinctive Remodelers can draw from the parent company’s skilled architectural design team and its computer-aided design (CAD) resources to ensure that the conceptualizing and planning of every home project goes smoothly and efficiently.

“When you enlist our services, you can rely on courteous, knowledgeable professionals — all of whom have been carefully screened — who will treat you and your property with respect,” said Mike. “You’ll get punctual responses to your questions and requests. And you can count on the highest level of customer service from a project manager specifically assigned to your home who will supervise your job from start to finish.”
