Owner John McCloud brings his Contractor’s License and nearly three decades of experience to the table. He's been rehabbing properties since 1996, he's owned his own property management company since 2005, and just recently he started his own contracting company. Welcome to John's world and to Summit Contracting.
Early in his career, John received comprehensive industry training while employed with a large national property management company. During these formidable years, he developed a practical and applicable understanding of apartment management and repeatedly turned around underperforming properties, all ranging in size from 230 to 1000 units. In February 1994, he accepted a senior position with a small property management company to help the owner manage and grow his portfolio. While there, he performed due diligence and secured financing for 15 real estate transactions and 4500 units. This successful growth was due in large measure to John's professional expertise and business acumen. He attained complete profit and loss accountability for the entire 21-site portfolio.
Now owner of Summit Contracting, John is a Certified Property Manager (CPM), the highest designation you can achieve in real estate management. In addition, he recently served as the secretary for the board of Institute of Real Estate Management, Chapter 62. Previous posts include Vice President of Legislative Affairs and the Vice President of Education for the Institute of Real Estate Management's Chicago Chapter.
Considered an expert in apartment utility sub metering and allocation, John has been cited as such in Units (October 2003), Multi-Family Executive (January 2004), and Apartment Finance Today (May/June 2004).
