Cherry Hill Real Estate | Aspect Properties are joining the Downtown Pontiac revival!

As many of you know, since Valerie and I started Aspect Properties 8 years ago, we have always tried to stay close to the city of Rochester. Unfortunately, between the ridiculous rental prices and two buildings in a row that had a lot of mold (especially not good for a leukemia survivor like me), we have decided that we should look outside the Rochester area.


For the last 3 years, we have managed a property at 7 North Saginaw in Downtown Pontiac. The building is owned by our family and we have been watching the development around it for some time.


We think now is the time to move to Downtown Pontiac and especially to 7 North Saginaw and here is why we are planning to move by the end of April 2017:


A chance to grow the Cherry Hill Companies Family. Over the next couple of months, we will be expanding our space bringing in a full retail space for our interiors division. Some of the exciting retail we will be doing are:

  • Cherry Hill Interiors - Interior design services, furniture, space planning, home decor and more!
  • RePurpose Paints - The full RePurpose paint and stain line will be distributed from our new store. We will create a great experience for our retailers and customers, including painting workshops and demonstrations.
  • The RePurpose Shop - Along with our good friend Cari Cucksey, we will be moving her Holly, Michigan based store to Downtown Pontiac. It will be a great experience for our clients and will help Cari's customers who used to visit her in Northville and Holly a place that is convenient. The RePurpose Shop can be summed up this way; From antique furniture and vintage toys to retro electronics and classic luxury cars, we are always on the lookout for obscure treasures as we comb through basements, attics and garages.
