In April 2014, Underdown, Ball & Associates, LLC, acquired Jack A. Underdown, Inc., a long-time real estate company focused on commercial and residential sales and property management in the Elkin area. This acquisition builds upon UnderdownBall’s established commercial and residential appraisal business acquired from Jack A. Underdown, Inc., in 2005 and further strengthens the Company’s real estate portfolio to include brokerage and property management.
Bob Ball, Partner of UNDERDOWNBALL said, “We are immensely proud of this additional merger between the two companies, which began working together in the commercial and residential appraisal industry nine years ago.”
With this new acquisition, UnderdownBall will now manage all commercial and residential real estate sales, listings and property management, previously handled by Jack A. Underdown, Inc.
“This acquisition uniquely positions UNDERDOWNBALL as a full service provider for all commercial and residential real estate needs. Whether you need a property listed for sale, or are looking to buy a home, or need someone to manage a rental property, or need a property appraised, we can do it all under one roof,” said Ball.
Jack A. Underdown, Inc., was founded in the 1960s by Jack Underdown, a prominent leader and educator in the real estate industry. Underdown passed away in May 2012. Since then, the company has been operated by Broker-In-Charge Bill Blackburn and Office Administrative Assistant Linda Osborne. Bill and Linda are pleased to announce their retirement from the company. “We thank them for their years of dedicated service and wish them well in their new ventures,” said Ball.
In their place, Robert Ball will assume the role of Broker-In-Charge as well as continue his work as a General Appraiser. Bob Ball will continue his role as a General Appraiser and Broker. The company is also pleased to announce that Eris Ball is a new real estate broker and will work in sales and property management as well as assist with office administration.
While the Company’s services, location and contact information will remain the same, they have created a new logo, are launching additional marketing efforts and have a renovated office space.
Robert Ball, Partner of UNDERDOWNBALL said, “We’re not changing – just building upon and further strengthening our real estate portfolio specializing in appraisals, brokerage and property management that Jack established so many years ago. We’re committed to providing the same professional and accurate services, enabling our clients to make knowledgeable and informed real estate decisions.”
