RBD Renovation, LLC

Rob Domin

In 2008 I was working as a mortgage lender for Eastern Savings Bank in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  At the time we were a subprime lender working nationwide and making a lot of loans in the Chicago area.  When the housing market crashed in 2009 they offered me the opportunity to relocate to Chicago and manage the banks REO (Real Estate Owned) portfolio.  So basically my rehab career started in 2009 and for the next 6 years we repaired over 150 homes for ESB.  I knew that job was temporary since we were no longer writing loans to replace the ones we were selling, but still tremendous experience especially working in all areas of Chicagoland.

In 2015 I joined Fay Servicing as an REO asset manager and still worked on rehabs, but this time it was nationwide and from a desk.  This was good experience, but not the same as being in the field so in 2018 I formed my company RBD Renovation LLC.  Over the next several years we worked on much larger multi-unit projects for several investors and direct clients.  Currently we have a crew of 6 plus sub-contractors for HVAC, electrical, plumbing, concrete, hardwood floors, and framing.  We not only take on the large projects, but also the smaller ones that most GC’s pass on.  Our pricing is very transparent and we tend to overcommunicate, but most clients greatly appreciate it.
