If you were to ask Jerrod and Natalee in 2005 if they thought Clement Companies could be a multi-million dollar company in just 10 short years, they might’ve said no. Why? Because when they started the business, they had only $800 in their pockets and both had full-time jobs. It was through hard work, a little bit of luck and a whole lot of sacrifice that they’ve been able to steadily grow. Jerrod and Natalee were working full-time at Clement Construction just 1 year after their 2005 start. Now Clement Companies is a successful corporation with multiple projects and employees.
The business started with small home remodeling and repair projects. Jerrod focused on the construction and Natalee began her tenure as the Director of Operations handling the finances and marketing.
Their focus has changed as they have grown from remodeling to real estate development. The Clement Companies’ team are expert house flippers, but understand that each project will be the purchaser’s home where they might fall in love, start a family and celebrate many other milestones. They change floor layouts to optimize the space and add second stories to increase the living space for the future homeowner.
Clement Companies have formed partnerships with many investors, vendors, and suppliers as the company has grown. Their relationships were born from their reputation as quality builders and their integrity as business owners. Jerrod and Natalee were recognized in January of 2016 with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award by the Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, their company was named a finalist in the 2016 Michigan 50 Companies to Watch awards.
The team believes in giving back. As a company they have volunteered labor hours and equipment for Christmas in Action for over five years, walked in the Grace Center of Hope’s Walk-A-Thon to benefit homeless children for two years, and donated time and materials to a local church for remodeling projects.
Jerrod and Natalee share a passion for the love of animals. They volunteer and foster dogs for Boxer Haven Rescue and are the proud parents of two boxers, one of which was their first “foster failure”.
