What could be worse than an irresponsible and ungrateful child?
When this ungrateful and irresponsible child is your own. Douglas’s story has become our story.
Doug is a veteran who is often away from home for work. This absence was convenient and attractive to his daughter who asked if she could live in his home temporarily. He couldn’t say “No” to his own child who also has a child and needs his help.
From that moment on, Douglas’s house was no longer empty. Parties and guests who stayed overnight, from time to time, slowly turning into tenants. With only one difference, they did not pay rent or contribute to expenses at all.
But Douglas will find out about this later, upon his return to discover a whole stack of unopened envelopes of unpaid bills and the remnants of the mortgage. Moreover, the house was in a deplorable condition: wrecked walls, bathtubs, and toilets were easier and cheaper to replace than try to clean. The carpets had absorbed gallons of spilled alcohol, vomit, and a foul odor of a public restroom. Everything was smashed and abandoned, including Douglas.
The house has been in the process of pre-foreclosure. Douglas was planning another trip ahead and soon he would be facing bankruptcy. The home’s condition made it impossible to sell in the shortest possible time. The stress was piling up.
We just moved to the area where Doug lived. He had only one desire and that was to get rid of the remnants of the mortgage and start a new life. Our poor neighbor made several vain attempts to sell his mutilated house. But when buyer after buyer left, Douglas was gloomy. Finally, we came to an agreement and bought his house from the bank, freeing this man from bankruptcy.
By Christmas, he had moved to Texas closer to his son’s family. In the prior months Doug continued to live in his house, packing his belongings and arranging for his move to Texas. He never stopped expressing his gratitude for our ability to help him when he needed it most. Thus, Doug’s home formed the basis of our company, which began with the history of TLC Estate.
- We have started TLC Estate back in 2014 with the mission of helping Sellers and beautifying our local neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Florida. We helped many sellers in distress and worked in many neighborhoods that benefited from our renovations.
- In 2018, TLC Estate moved to Raleigh, NC (hence the name “NC TLC Estate”) to help residents in our home state achieve their real estate goals. As a company, we have developed into a passionate coordinated team dedicated to helping sellers, buyers, and real estate agents right here in the Triangle area.
