The DreamStone Homes Vlog

As promised after my recent announcement about our new company, today is the debut of our very first vlog! Click to watch:


This past week has been a complete whirlwind (how has it only been 7 days since we landed in Florida?!) and it’s just the beginning.

On top of unpacking, getting situated, 16 hour days filled with calls and meetings and paperwork—we’re attempting to document the entire crazy process to share with the world. We hope that this will help others on the same path or who are simply interested in learning about real estate investing, starting a business from the ground up or the rehab & design aspect. Also, it will be fun to look back in 10 or 20 years and see where we started 😉


Now we want to hear from you—what do you want to see and learn about? We’re basically guinea pigs here, trying to figure it all out from scratch. We’ve made a lot of progress since last year, but we’re committed to dedicating our lives to becoming experts on the whole spectrum of real estate investing (including rehab & design, of course!). I don’t see this discussed much in the blogosphere, so we’re hoping to fill that niche as best as we can.

Reach out to me on instagram, facebook, or leave a comment below with any questions or topics you’d like us to address. Nothing is off limits, and we’ll be doing ongoing video Q&A’s with our answers.

Is it weird that I’m more excited about this than the day we left to travel the world for 8 months? Maybe that just means this is really what I’m meant to do. Big things are coming… I can feel it!

  1. I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now and am so excited to see the locations you pick for your new ventures (I’m hoping for some West Tampa and Seminole Heights action!) If you haven’t already, make sure to check out Schiller’s Salvage, it’s completely overwhelming in a completely fantastic way. Welcome to Tampa!

  2. It is very exciting to see you start on your new venture and I am sure you will nail it. Like you said there isn’t much information on blogland about combination of real estate investing and design. Most information about starting a business from scratch is vague, forcing to buy some package to learn the actual information which doesn’t make it trust worthy. Would love to see your journey and learn from you.
    An update on selling the cottage house flip would be great too.

  3. I am so freaking excited to follow along on this new chapter! Best of luck to you both in this new venture; it will be an amazing ride for all of us! I am pretty darn sure will will see you guys on HGTV or DIY sooner than later!

  4. So glad your back!! Just curious but what editing software and camera do you use? Love the style of your videos!

  5. hooray! i enjoyed following along on your trips, but i love being a fly on the wall for your renovations!! we live in a very cookie cutter house in a denver suburb, so always looking for ideas on how to add character and charm—and you are the best at that! can’t wait to see what unfolds in your new adventure! congratulations on your engagement and welcome back to the states!

  6. Yay, so excited for you…as far as what we want to see and hear — share it all. So far it feels like you haven’t held back so just keep going. I can’t wait to see what the future holds, but I know it will be good. You two are talented and passionate about what you love, and it shows!

  7. Congrats!! I am hoping to purchase my first flip that I haven’t lived in while renovating. I would love to hear more about financing flips, how you go about sourcing contractors you can trust and whether it makes since to get a real estate license to save on the fees when you sell.

  8. I am very excited to share this fabulous journey with you both! Seeing all that is required starting a business is going to be so interesting. Oh, and watching the rehab on your houses will be so fun! Not to mention how inspirational you are! You and Lucas are so kind to let us into your world, and we can’t wait!

  9. I’d love to know what you consider “make or break” elements of a prospective house you’ll buy… like, significant water damage? Foundation issues? Multiple walls needing work? I have no idea how to evaluate whether a house is worth it or too much commitment to be an investment!

    You also have the ability to envision what a piece of furniture will look like with some TLC. The desk you turned into a vanity in the last flip is amazing, but started out fairly plain! You were able to add trim and paint and turn it into a really unique, one of a kind piece. I’d love more of that, as always.

    What is your process with designing an overall appearance in a house, and how do you connect each room to prompt and promote flow? I’d love to learn more about that.

    And always, affordable DIYs keep me coming back. I love small investment for big impact, and you always seem to know how to do that!

    Thanks for what you do, and for taking us with you!
