Our Story - Suburban Roots
Our parents both purchased their dream homes in the tract named Suburbia Park in Huntington Beach in the late 1960's. It was a new tract, as most where in the area, and Dan and I both fondly recall growing up on Edye Drive. As next-door neighbors, I remember getting the construction bug by watching in wonder as our house went from 2X4 sticks to a home, and Dan remembers the great adventures of riding bikes to the beach, building forts, skateboard ramps and half-pipes.
Having a great love for family and the community, we raised our children in the same neighborhood and spent many hours volunteering for local non-profit organizations including youth sports and local school PTA's. While I began a career in the construction industry after college, Dan owned a retail scuba store for many years before joining the construction industry.
After several career changes, we teamed up to help people find their dream home or business. On the construction side, Dan spent decades restoring or renovating homes and restaurants, as well as providing tenant improvements to commercial and multifamily housing projects. I assisted in the renovations and became a realtor, helping several friends with the selling and purchasing of property.
Recently relocating to Arizona, we are excited about continuing to help people live or work in an environment that gives them great joy. However, before we re-start the construction and real estate ventures, we our building our own off-grid homestead, JDK Ranchette. Our dream for the land includes orchards, community garden, raising animals, and a sunny home offering warm hospitality to all that visit.
