We have funded several projects for Kathleen McTigue (A.B.U. Investments, LLC). She is honest and trustworthy (this quality is sometimes hard to find) and all of their contractors are above reproach. A.B.U. Investments, LLC always does what they said they are going to do. Their rehab projects are just beautiful. They pay attention to detail and always put out quality work. It's important for me to do business with someone I can trust. I will not hesitate to fund their projects in the future and/or purchase their remodeled properties for my personal investments.
Sam Wong, Q.S.I. Investments, LLC, Portland, OR
Kathleen and A.B.U. Investments have consistently exceeded our expectations with the services they provide to their clients. In our industry we constantly see investors that try to cut corners in order to save on costs and then hide this from the end buyer. A.B.U. Investments has always gone above and beyond the call of duty by putting out a product that is not only sustainable for many years to come, but will not have issues in the first twelve months of ownership that even the big name builders seem to have. I would recommend anyone looking for solid investment properties that will cash flow for many years to come, to work with A.B.U. by either investing with them or purchasing one of their finished properties.
Wayne Turner, The Wayne Turner Group, Southfield, MI
I have partnered with Kathleen on a couple of properties to date and have had great success. She typically handles the remodel portion of the property while I have funded the purchase. I look forward to doing other properties with her in the future.
Rob Nani, Paradigm Property Solutions, Rochester Hills, MI
I recently bought my home from Kathleen McTigue the owner of A.B.U. Investments and I could not be happier. After looking at what felt like a hundred homes my fiancé and I knew that this house was the right one for us. With the heart she put into every detail of the house we fell in love with it right away. It was such a relief to move into a beautiful home that needed no work. The best part was seeing the before and after pictures. She knew what she was doing and if I ever move I will be giving her a call for my next house. Kathleen was wonderful to work with and helped us make the exciting step of buying our first home an enjoyable one.

I have had the pleasure of working with A.B.U. Investments, LLC (Kathleen McTigue) as her Realtor for over a year now and have been very impressed with her/their professionalism and the quality of work shown at all of their remodeling projects. I know when I show one of their properties to one of my prospective buyers that they are getting the best possible product available. A.B.U. always goes the extra mile to ensure that all of their remodels are above reproach. I look forward to many years of continued partnerships with A.B.U. Investments, LLC and Kathleen McTigue.
Justen Alias, - Realtor, Keller-Williams, Troy, MI
I just recently had the pleasure working with A.B.U Investments in conjunction with Kathleen McTigue at 12031 Bramell, Redford, MI. 48239. This experience has been very exciting and beneficial. The property was clean and well maintained. Both Kathleen and her husband were quite helpful throughout the whole experience. I aspire that we can continue our relationship and hopefully do business again; if the opportunity presents itself in the near future. Thanks again for a quality and professional experience.
Bobby W. Hunt Jr. - Owner/Occupant, Redford, MI
As a first time home buyer, I was not looking for a house that needed a lot of work. I wanted a house that was basically, move-in ready. In purchasing a house from Kathleen, I found just that. I didn't even have to paint immediately. I was happy to have found a solid remodeled house. I also like that fact that Kathleen was willing to answer any questions I had about my new house. I could not be happier with my decision to buy this house.
