THE  ASSURED  STORY

Our story began in 1981 when Paul Yakubik brought his family 3000 miles across the US to set roots in Henderson Nevada to pursue his real estate career. With unmatched determination, Yakubik was committed to the prosperity and growth of the local community while providing a service based on honesty, integrity and transparency. Along the way, he has instilled these core values into our team at Assured to further his vision of serving the community. 

 

To this day, our goal is to provide real estate services to grow and maintain the community in which we live. This is rooted in the preservation and maintenance of our client’s prosperity, which in turn, benefits the community and allows the neighborhoods we call home to remain sustainable places to live.

HOA  MANAGEMENT

In 1988, the PEPCON blast resulted in excessive damage to several communities throughout southern Nevada. Properties within these communities, managed by Assured, fell within the management of the Summerfield Village Homeowners Association. As a result, Assured Founder, Paul Yakubik began attending the HOA meetings to stay up to date on the actions taken to assist devastated homeowners. At the time, HOA’s were self-managed by a board of directors, most of whom were individuals with no background or experience in business or the real estate industry. With substantial knowledge of the subsequent actions needing to be taken, Yakubik took it upon himself to guide the board through the process of filing claims with insurance companies in order to have damage from the blast repaired. Therefore, in the following years, HOA management was added to Assured’s list of services provides to clients. More than 30 years later, we are proud to manage Summerfield Village HOA.

CONSTRUCTION  &  DEVELOPMENT

The creation of Assured Development came out of necessity to find qualified maintenance and construction workers. Having a development team in place gave Assured new opportunities for working on redevelopment projects, new construction, and take on projects in depressed area where properties and land have been neglected and unused. 

 

The Assured team has a proven track record and reputation for transforming forgotten land and abandoned buildings into thriving and sought-after destinations for locals and visitors alike. Through the work completed and currently underway on Water Street in Downtown Henderson, Assured has paved the way for redevelopment and ignited a renewed interest in the area.
