The Hotaling family has been working in the home improvement, construction, and sales sector since the boys were pre-teens. Dad decided to build his own home in North Arlington in 1977 because it was the only way a GS 13 Engineer could raise a family in good school districts close to work and still afford it.
The “boys” were put to work and toiled through all the trades learning how to lay out and design structures, pour the foundations, frame the structure, install the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, and get the roof on before winter. Project planning and resource management were subliminally taught at every step. Fast forward 30 plus years and John II is a senior patent engineer at the US Patent and Trademark Office, and Bob is one of the top RE/MAX agents in the mid Atlantic region and also my partner in TURN AROUND PROPERTIES, LLC. All throughout high school and college both boys continually used tools and resources to improve and build properties. With this skill set many many projects were completed and friends and customers were always helped. John and Bob put a major addition on Bob's future father-in-law’s home while he was in college and wooed his wife to be at the same time. TURN AROUND PROPERTIES LLC was born in the housing crises of 2008 when many distressed foreclosed properties needed our help. We have a large portfolio of ‘basket case’ houses we have rescued and turned into lovely homes. That common theme continues today - people just do not have the resources to upgrade their home to achieve the full market potential. The FastTAP Program is the answer and TURN AROUND PROPERTIES LLC has demonstrated we can make it happen.
