Please join us in welcoming to the DHIC Team, Tim Fisher, our new Project Manager.
In this role, Tim is responsible for managing all phases of new construction and acquisition rehab projects including initial inception, site pursuit, tax credit applications, site development and construction, and the overall stabilization of the project.
Says Tim, “Each project is a little different, but it’s incredibly fulfilling to be able to work on a development from start to finish. The other project managers on the team have helped me jump right in, and we recently submitted tax credit applications for a two-phase community to be built in Apex. It’s an exciting time to be here, and I’m thrilled to be part of the DHIC family.”
Tim joins DHIC with a background in the for-profit world of real estate development. Transitioning to non-profit work is part of what appealed most to him about joining the DHIC team.
He says, “I’m passionate about real estate development, but after a few years working in a for-profit company, I felt drawn to look for something that would allow me to better serve the community. DHIC was the perfect fit.”
Originally from Central Pennsylvania, Tim attended grad school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014, where he fell in love with the area. After earning his MBA, he and his wife, Sierra, moved to Athens, GA where he worked in student housing development.
When his wife was offered a promotion that would have her working out of Raleigh last year, they both saw it as the perfect opportunity to put their roots down in the Triangle. “We love it here. We can’t think of a better place to establish our careers and, eventually, start a family,” he says.
Outside of work, Tim enjoys grilling and cooking, getting outdoors, cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers, UNC basketball, and Penn State, and a host of other activities. He says, “I have a lot of hobbies, so any weekend I can spend doing a combination of things I enjoy, I consider a success. Whether it’s getting outside with our dogs, Yoshi and Ruger, working on my car or taking a spontaneous day trip, doing what I love helps me recharge.”
