By | News | No Comments

Atlanta, GA (August 9, 2023) – Qualified Remodeler, a leading publication serving remodelers and home improvement companies in the U.S., has ranked Birdsey Construction Management as No. 117 on its 45th annual TOP 500 remodelers of 2023. Since 1978, the QR TOP 500 has tracked the industry’s largest and fastest growing companies. In 2023, the TOP 500 represented over $16 billion in remodeling sales volume and nearly two million jobs.

Birdsey Construction Management was chosen as a 2023 Top 500 remodeler by the Qualified Remodeler editorial staff for meeting a set of criteria including installed remodeling dollar volume, total years in business, industry association membership, industry certification, industry awards and community service.

Birdsey Construction Management helps real estate investors expand their portfolios with quality renovations on time and on budget. Success can be traced back to a commitment of clear communication, working with urgency and fitting into clients’ processes in a variety of property types, from single-family portfolios to large multifamily, commercial, and hospitality assignments.

“Based on Qualified Remodeler’s analysis, the Top 500 firms tend to share several common attributes, including strong revenues, a commitment to customer service, insightful sales techniques and strong customer loyalty,” says Qualified Remodeler owner and editorial director, Patrick O’Toole. “These attributes helped put the firms on this list and contribute to their success.”

With three-year revenue growth of 1880%, it’s the third time the company has qualified and the fourth time a Birdsey company has made the list. 

The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses.

“It is an incredible honor to receive the Inc 5000 award as the 302nd fastest growing company in the country (6th fastest growing construction company in the U.S., the 14th fastest company overall in GA, and the 14th fastest company overall in Atlanta).

Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

Pacesetter Awards: Birdsey Group CEO says don’t fear bold moves

Ahead of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Awards event on April 27, 2023, the Chronicle asked some of the top 100 fastest-growing companies to share what led to their growth.

Commercial real estate consulting firm Birdsey Group CEO Sandford Birdsey said personal attention to clients’ needs are key.

How did your company grow so quickly?

We diversified our company across a broad spectrum of real estate industries to provide an array of products, from financial services to construction in the residential and commercial sectors. We let our clients tell us what they needed and then built an efficient solution that helped them achieve their operational goals.

What have been your company’s growth strategies?

We take the time to find out what institutional real estate investors need, what their pain points are and what solutions our firm can provide to add value to our clients’ investment strategies. We then built out several individual subsidiaries focused on providing services at scale across the U.S.

What challenges has your company faced, and how have you overcome (or are you overcoming) them?

The biggest challenge is finding the right people to buy into the culture and to maintain a focus on quality and urgency while we grow. Our business is largely transaction-based so currently interest rates have been a challenge. Fortunately, we’re diversified to sectors like asset management and servicing support that tend to be more active in down markets.

What are your future goals for your company?

We want to continue to grow, expand to new markets and curate additional service lines to attract a broader array of real estate investors looking to scale their operations. 

What advice do you have for companies looking to grow?

Don’t be afraid to make big operational pivots during busy times. It’s a cliché that you don’t change a jet engine at 30,000 feet, but that’s what’s often required when you’re growing rapidly. Be bold, and don’t forget to have fun.

Birdsey Receives S&P Imprimatur

By | News | No Comments

S&P has given a big boost to due-diligence shop Birdsey Group’s effort to expand its footprint in the residential-mortgage market.
Birdsey, best known for its commercial mortgage underwriting services, entered the residential-mortgage field via the 2015 formation of a unit called Birdsey Group Residential. This week, the Atlanta firm received word that S&P will begin using its data to rate and monitor residential mortgage securitizations, adding it to a list of approved due-diligence firms that includes AMC and Clayton Holdings.
“This acknowledgement helps solidify our presence as a leading provider of origination and securitization services,” chief executive Sandford Birdsey said.
S&P considers a number of factors in choosing data suppliers, including staffing, technology, information security and compliance protocols.
Birdsey was founded in 2004. Its clients include banks, independent mortgage lenders, servicers and asset managers.

Due-Diligence Shop Still Expanding

Birdsey Group plans to continue its hiring spree.

The real estate consulting and due diligence firm expects to add 10-20 staffers this year, barring a major market disruption. That would be on top of the addition of 23 recruits last year, which lifted the Atlanta shop’s total current staffing to 40. Birdsey plans to hire 4-5 commercial-mortgage underwrit­ers right away and possibly add the same number in the third quarter, said chief executive Sandford Birdsey. Its clients in the commercial real estate sector include agency and private-label lenders, servicers, B-piece buyers and other investors. The 11-year-old company is also looking to hire some busi­ness-development and residential-mortgage specialists. The underwriter openings require at least three years of experience. The recruits would work in Atlanta, Dallas and Irvine, Calif., with at least one person in each location to start. They would join the contract-underwriting and due-dil­igence practice led by managing director Robert Burton in Atlanta. He came aboard a year ago from Covius, after almost 12 years in a similar area at that Atlanta-based firm and its pre­decessors. Applicants should call Burton at 404-419-2386 or send resumes to
