Dennis & Teresa Walsh founded Dennis Walsh & Associates, Inc. (DWA), the parent company of REbuildUSA, in 1988. Since that time, DWA has been in the business of delivering cutting-edge education and consulting to the world’s leading real estate organizations.
Dennis and Teresa Walsh are respected for their innovation and contributions to America's housing industry and enjoy long-standing relationships developed over two decades of speaking, consulting and participating in events from coast-to-coast. As national FHA 203k consultants and experts, the Walsh's have been featured speakers at hundreds of conventions and live events on the subject. They are also authors of Real Estate's Best Kept Secret, Consumers' most comprehensive FHA 203k Renovation Loan handbook, which is available on Amazon.com in Summer 2013
Prior to DWA, both were active in a number of areas of construction and real estate. Dennis grew up working on construction sites, learning each of the building trades hands on, and eventually became a designer and builder of custom homes and major remodeling projects. He also owned and operated a factory built housing, lumber and materials supply business, providing panelized building packages for projects throughout the eastern U.S.
Teresa worked in banking and earned her real estate license before taking on an ownership and management role in her family’s marble, tile, stone and flooring business. In this capacity, she worked with architects, interior designers, material suppliers, builders and homeowners through various phases of the design, planning and construction process.
Based on their extensive experience in residential real estate and construction, the Walsh’s recognized a unique opportunity to help consumers and real estate professionals tap into the power of the U.S. Government FHA 203k Renovation Loan program. To this end, REbuildUSA™ was established to help open up home ownership to many more Americans, while bringing new business to lenders, real estate professionals and the home renovation industry. REbuildUSA continues to grow its national membership which currently includes thousands of 203k Specialist real estate and mortgage professionals throughout the nation.
Presented to more than 150,000 real estate professionals throughout the US, Canada and beyond, DWA’s live presentations, webinars, and designation courses, 203k Specialist (203KS), Certified New Home Specialist™ (CNHS) and Residential Construction Certified™ (RCC), are respected as the very best of their kind. Presented in computer-based self-study format, these courses are endorsed and/or private-labeled by a “who’s-who” of real estate’s leading organizations.
