Jay M Donohue is the Owner of Malamute Development; a real estate development company that focuses on complete home renovations and projects in the Denver metro area. With over 10 years of experience in renovations from California to Colorado, and has proven to be a trusted leader in the industry with a detailed approach to his work.
Jay knew from a young age that real estate was going to be in his life. Growing up in Philadelphia, PA, he quickly fell in love with the architecture and learned to appreciate the qualities of a solid brick home. Being surrounded by the historic buildings and craftsmanship of the area sparked a lot of inspiration for Jay, and he tries to incorporate that same level of crafstmanship in his work today. Just like the houses he grew up admiring, he wants his work to still be standing in 100 years’ time.
Recently, the real estate industry at large has seen a spike in the popularity of flipping properties. It’s encouraging to Jay and his colleagues to see people take such an interest in restoring old properties. However, there can be many complications with house flippers that give this practice a bad reputation. For this reason, it’s important to note that Jay M Donohue and his team do not flip homes - they restore them. Jay and his team take immense pride in their work, ensuring that no corners are cut and all restorations are up to code. They spend a great deal of time perfecting each element of these old properties from the foundation to the finishing touches. This means that every HVAC system, all plumbing and electricity, and inspections are fully standardized and ready for a new home owner.
Malamute Development was created in 2017 as part of a merging of several smaller real estate and development groups. They work to bring the charm and beauty of old properties back to life. Buildings are a part of our history, and Jay M Donohue wants to be a part of that story as well as offer a way for stories once forgotten to be retold. Jay and his team work primarily in the Denver Metro area to redevelop residential properties. Malamute Development also works with homeowners or investors to take on large projects and new construction as well.
Jay M Donohue doesn’t see the public interest in old homes slowing down any time soon. Thankfully, Denver has embraced this practice and has taken great lengths to ensure that the quality of these restorations meet a standard of excellence. This has only made public interest grow bigger, and with Denver already being a booming metropolis, Jay and his team are excited to see what the future brings. Jay’s favorite part of the process? Seeing the sheer difference in what the homes look like when they are finished after witnessing their conditions beforehand. Seeing the happiness and shock on the faces of others as they look at Malamute Development’s work isn’t too bad either.
