History & Purpose

Restore 818 began operations in 2010 in the midst of the worst economic downturn since the great depression. Operations began in what were some of the areas worst hit by the collapse of the credit bubble – Nevada and Southern California. The strength that comes from being able to profit in the midst of adversity is what drives Restore 818 Inc.

The principals, a husband and wife team John-Paul and Janie Micek, contribute unique skill sets and experience to Restore 818 investors and clients. John-Paul brings over 30-years of design/build experience and 20+ years of real estate investment experience in single-family, multifamily and commercial properties. Janie brings over 15-years of Architecture, Interior Design and commercial project management experience to the company giving Restore 818 a unique advantage in the market.

In December 2012 Restore 818 relocated from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale to establish ourselves in what we believe will be one of the strongest and most rapidly appreciating markets in the US. There were four critical reasons for such a significant relocation from one Coast to the other which you can read here. You may be surprised to find that you’re in a similar situation and why our setting up shop in South Florida works in your favor.

With significant investment experience in diverse markets including New Jersey, Boston, Oahu Hawaii, Houston, Dallas and Southern California we identified a unique opportunity in the South Florida market. We see a growing demand in three segments that provide significant investment opportunities:

  1. Discriminating buyers seeking for fully restored and modernized single family homes
  2. Strong rental demand for upgraded multifamily properties in B+ or better areas
  3. Dated commercial properties ripe for adaptive reuse.

Equally important there is an extremely low supply of upgraded properties in South Florida, especially for those looking for hip, modern living or working spaces. Restore 818 is focused on filling that demand by delivering quality modernized and rehabbed properties infused with professional design, character and “soul.”
