My name is Kevin McCraw and I am a life long resident of West Lafayette, IN. I went to Purdue University and came out of it with a mixed expectation of what I wanted to do in life and luckily fell into Real Estate by chance and I love it! I’ve watched Lafayette and West Lafayette grow over the years to what it has become today and it has been quite the boom. Where I grew up was nothing but acres of cornfields that are now hundreds if not thousands of single family homes. I’ve seen forests and farms become highways, swamps become department stores, weed patches become apartment buildings. Everyday more and more growth continues as home production and prices continue to rise. Since 2006 I have been in the Real Estate industry and I truly love it and have a passion that drives me . In those years, I have had the privilege of working with numerous builders and helped people design and build their new dream home. I’ve helped sellers achieve over and above asking price numerous times, helped investors find cash flowing rentals, helped take distressed homes from ruin to riches through complete restoration and to this day, every day continues to be a new adventure.
In the early part of 2005 I purchased my first duplex. This was in addition to my own home that I had built in 2001. I started my career in property management here and purchased a house on Queen Street in Lafayette soon after. Later, I purchased another duplex. I’ve been able to keep these units rented and profiting each year and maintain a high customer satisfaction rating. However, it was in 2006 that I began my career with an Indianapolis Builder, CP Morgan. Soon after that the market in Real Estate crashed. Despite the crash, I learned in dire times how to qualify buyers and show them the best available home loan programs that would best serve their needs, whether it be a no money down program, grant program, or something else. Throughout 2006 and until CP Morgan went bankrupt, like so many other good builders, I was able to make a very good career and help many clients become homeowners or happy renters. I was recruited immediately by another builder after CP Morgan was dissolved; Arbor Homes. It was until 2012 I worked for builders but saw so many missed opportunities and decided to go out on a limb and work for myself as a Realtor. I did this and worked in Indy for 123 My First Home and was actually going to fly out to SC and open my own franchise but decided to do even more and flip houses locally.
