CF & Associates LLC

Name: Curtis Fleming

Location: South Yarmouth, MA 

Type of Business:
We are a Real Estate company

What does your business do?
We provide safe, secure, high quality and affordable housing. we aim to be with a person for their entire life. Our mission is to be able to support a person's housing needs in every aspect and age of their lives from young adults, to families and to seniors just looking for a place to call home. We aim to provide this housing platform in low economic growth areas to give back to local communities.

When and why did you start the biz?
CF & Associates LLC started in May of 2017. This Business was started, because I grew up in one of these low economic growth areas of Massachusetts. I remember playing on old rusty Swing sets, and communities pools that never seemed to have water and housing complexes about to fall apart. This is what I started this company, because i want young mothers and fathers come home to a nice clean and secure living environment for them to raise their children. I want young professionals to realize that the finer things in life can be beyond the lights of the big city. Finally i want our older generations to not worry about whether or not they will have frozen pipes in the winter or blistering heat in the summer. I want our residents not to worry about where they live, because life is stressful enough with out having to think about your living conditions.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I have a Small fully furnished office space. With futon in along the back wall for when i fall asleep at the office and an air conditioner to keep me cool in the summer. On the back wall, I have a shelf full of my favorite books and pictures of my 1.5 year old daughter and my beautiful wife of five years.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part about running my business in finding top quality and trust worthy people.

What's the most fun part?
the Most fun part if the idea that everyday i get to wake up, and i kiss my daughter before I leave and I say to myself. I'm doing this for you and your children and that everyday I go to work I'm working to improve somebody else's life.

Anything you would have done differently?
The one thing I wish I had done differently is that I wish I started sooner and not waited to so long to start.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Next for CF & Associates LLC is to redevelop an existing apartment complex west of Boston, Ma. Provide high quality Hotel like amenities and have environment for the young working professional. This community will be called "FLEMING LUX".

What advice do you have for others?
Advice I would give to others is to first let God be your guiding light. Always have faith in your abilities and be a life long learner. With taking the massive leap and starting your own venture, I would tell someone to realize that at time it may seem like everything is lost and that your mission is doomed, But never ever give up and never lose hope. And Finally the hardest part is at the beginning, the amount of effort it will take to get your business off the ground will take massive amounts of action.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
i use Idea Safe to learn and educate myself from others. I see there is much value in learning how things are being done in different industries and seeing different sides of the coin. having a younger sibling just graduate from school and taking a role in a startup with a sales role. I always ask him a simple question. do you really want to be working for somebody else when your 50? I like to share different small business ideas with him that i find and i see that Idea Cafe has great content for people to do this and to learn the basics go going zero to one.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Fitchburg State University

Prior jobs or business?
Smith & Nephew - Medical device sales representative Orthosensor Inc - North East Sales Manager Corin Orthopedics - New England Sales Distributer Johnson & Johnson - Global Strategic Marketing

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?
Bitty and Meshack

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
No, these cats belong to my wife. i adopted them when we got married.

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
My Father. Being an Entreprenuer himself, i saw his life growing up and saw the life he gave me, my brother and my mother i only want to be able to take care of my parents in their old age and take care of my family as well

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
This is to my Wife, Jessica Fleming. with out you, none this would be possible
