A little history
Our company started as a dream for a newly-married young couple in the winter of 2009. After much praying, fasting and other deciding factors, the opportunity presented itself to make a once far fetched dream a reality. In February 2010, we opened Divine Property Management, LLC. with the little money in our savings account and we immediately hit the ground running. With only one solid income, a single-car, and three kids, we ran our business from our small 2 bedroom apartment while scheduling any meetings with clients at their home or a local coffee shop. We understood we had to make this work, but at that time didn’t understand how hard it would be. As the market was trying to recover from the fall, we had many long days farming, nervously cold calling and endless neighborhood searching for potential rental properties. We did our own marketing and advertising, launched our own website, and branded ourselves.
Statistics say that within the first two years more than 50% of small businesses fail, and knowing that we had no previous experience in running a business more less building one from the ground up we knew that it was a risk. All we had was love for each other, faith in Jesus Christ and a vision that was birthed in our heart. There were too many restless nights. There were too many days, weeks and months of uncertainty but we knew that if we stood on our faith in God while holding onto our dream that things would get better and it did. In 2011 – 2015 our business grew by more than 500% and 2014 was and still has been our best year to date, in which we doubled our business from June – December. In Spiring 2014, we added a set of twins to our family making us a family of seven, then changed the name of our company to Sevyn & Co. completely rebranding ourselves, opening our first physical office, and hiring staff.
