Understanding what our company does can be a little confusing because we are not a conventional construction/painting company, real estate brokerage, or property manager. We play a part in all three of these businesses in an effort to best service our clients. To help explain how I have come to be competent with all three of these aspects, let me explain my story.
My name is Jacob Bult, and I am the owner and operator of Bult Property Solutions. I moved from a suburb of Chicago to Sandpoint rather suddenly in 2009. This move was prompted by an offer I made on a 4-unit apartment building with retail frontage that I honestly never thought would get accepted. But, they accepted it, and I had 30 days to move to Sandpoint.
I lived in the units as I remodeled them, used the closest gas station for a bathroom at times, and slept next to my tools and sawdust. Fast forward several years and I now own multiple buildings, each of which I have remodeled myself. Along the way, I got my real estate and contractor’s licenses, which really helped me streamline the process and save a ton of money for myself and my clients. It has become a great pleasure to me to be able to share my experience to benefit others as a Realtor, contractor, and landlord. This breadth of experience has led to the differentiation between Bult Property Solutions and other companies that do just one of the things we do: we understand the whole process, see the big picture, and get stuff done quickly, affordably, and with no middle man. So while we are able to provide you with a wealth of knowledge and skills, we can also keep costs low, maintain a more personal relationship with all of our clients, and make sure every aspect of the buying, selling, and adding of value are personalized to each individual’s needs.
Most recently, with my incredible wife Kelli leading the way, we have had the great honor of converting a local building supply company’s property into a gym with a special purpose. The Unique Center for Athletes of all Needs (UCAN) has been our most meaningful project yet. Like previous projects, we bootstrapped the process and did the purchase, renovation, and management ourselves. Unlike previous projects, this is a non-profit and our local community has engaged, contributed, and helped in so many incredible ways!
