Rescue Real Estate was created from a conversation that spanned many topics. We had to decide how to best use our particular talents to help the people who cross our path. We combined our unique experiences, honed skill sets and created something uncommon.
We have 2 partners, Jacob Roy and Marcia Ferrante. Yes, we are real estate investors. Everyone wants success but that is not our only reason we began the business. We have a passion for what we do, improving houses and improving the lives of others around us.
When we buy vacant, run down or abandoned houses, fix them up and sell them we help to improve the neighborhood, raise real estate values, and make something old new again.
When people need to sell their homes quickly, we can help. Not just by paying a fair cash price for their home but creating ideas not provided by their lawyers or bankers even if it is not at a profit to us. We take out the hassle and make it easy. We care and we want to help.
When we finish a home we stand back with pride and are always amazed at what we see that was accomplished. We had ideas in our minds eye and now it is a reality. We polished and shined and to us and our buyers we created a work of art.
We are personally rewarded with the comments at our open house. Everyone loves the home even if it is not to their exact specific requirements for size etc. Upon entering you immediately see the care and attention to detail and quite frankly the love that was put into the home and they know they can buy with confidence. We take the time to personally walk them through on closing day and go over every detail before we hand over the keys. Everyone is happy, we are happy and we are proud.
Homegrown in Vermont, one of Jake’s earliest memories was following his Dad around handing him tools and helping build and repair their family home. Over the years, working with his Dad, these skills expanded from roofing and siding, to installing kitchens, baths and more. At nineteen, Jake landed a job building log homes in Japan which ignited a thirst for traveling. His personality and love of the water started a career in the yachting industry. His leadership and mechanical ability took him from Engineer to a First Officer. On hiatus, he would always come back to Vermont and work with his father’s company Roy’s Home Siding. Years on yachts and working along side his Dad helped form a work ethic and aim for perfection that is evident in the homes he produces.
As a child, Marcia spent quality time with her Dad handing him tools for small projects he did around the house. He owned and managed furniture stores and constantly had samples of newer items in their home. Her love for design and desire to be an entrepreneur was born at that time. Her abilities were evident at a young age where Marcia was constantly asked “can you come and do that in my home”.
After years as a Sales Executive, she attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale for Interior Design. Marcia soon opened her own business, designed and managed projects, updating homes including kitchens and baths and learned from the contractors. Years later she obtained her real estate license and combined both passions. Upon meeting Jake, Rescue Real Estate was born.
Marcia is still currently a licensed Realtor with Home Run Real Estate, LLC in the state of Florida.
