Tim Huter graduated from Miami University with a Bachelors in Business Administration.

He moved to multi-unit Operations Management for Panera Bread and consulting for the Steak Escape chain, Sporting Goods concepts, and other real estate investment projects.

He worked with Bryan Lipps much of his career as the Managing Partner of Hoggy’s where they built and remodeled several of their locations. In 2013 he and Bryan joined forces to start a Real Estate Investment & Home Remodeling Company, where they have grown sales each year and provided strong returns for investors along the way.

In 2017 they added several marquee projects including a major renovation of the Cincinnati Union Terminal, multiple restaurants, office and retail remodels and conversions.
