Before founding Bristol in late 2005, Jerry spent 14 years owning and operating a successful mortgage company providing retail mortgage and financial services to home improvement contractors and custom builders throughout the western U.S.

During that time period, he improved the administrative and quality control procedures that his contractors failed to manage when providing services to their clients. It was through this venture that he realized the need for a quality management system to better the services to consumer and property management companies.

Shortly thereafter Jerry secured his general contractor’s license and started operations as Bristol Builders, Incorporated. Under his management The Bristol Companies have rehabbed or remodeled over 11,000 residential properties throughout Southern California.
