Who are these people??
Hi! We are Uriah and Katelynn Dortch: house flippers, home renovators, and landlords who’ve done over 85 deals in and around the Raleigh area over the last 10 years. Throughout that time, we’ve developed a passion for real estate and love of all-things-home, particularly with design and renovation.
Uriah is a real estate broker with a background in project management, construction and acquisitions. Katelynn used to be an ICU nurse, but now leads The Inspiring Investment team in design and marketing. Her friends call her Katie 🙂
For some reason, God thought we could handle 4 kids – it helps that they are the bees knees (we’re biased, obviously). Uriah and I work together every day and still love each other. Basically, Jesus is the glue that holds us all together and that’s all I can really say about that.
For fun, we casually dabble in Crossfit, kick the soccer ball with our kids or if it is Katie’s lucky day, s-l-o-w-l-y knock out a house project (on our house). But most days you’ll find us behind the scenes running our two businesses and current side gig (this blog):
The Inspiring Investment – We Buy Houses
The Inspiring Investment is a home buying company based out of Raleigh, NC. We buy houses that need work directly from homeowners when it has become more of a burden than a blessing.
The heart of TII is one of transparency, honesty, and good work that matters. There is nothing we love more than giving people a fresh start and a broken houses new life.
If you have any questions about selling direct, we are here to help.
Meet our Team!
Brecken & Oaks – Traditional Real estate
It seemed only natural to develop a sister company to our brand that would allow us the ability to further serve our sellers and community through traditional residential real estate with buying and selling agents.
Brecken & Oaks is named after our two youngest boys.
The Inspiring Investment Blog
Early on in the business, we felt it important to do more than just buy & renovate houses. We want to leave something valuable behind. The content on this site is intended to document our projects, share tips and tricks based on what we’ve learned over time and be a design inspiration to our readers. Our subscribers get an extra layer of insider knowledge, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be on our Inspiring Crew.
