(NEW YORK, NY) — If you’re looking for some feel-good news on this cold Thursday, you’ve come to the right place.
Asia Denson, owner of Denson Construction Services, is teaching people in Brooklyn how to buy real estate.
The 36-year-old Detroit native flew to New York, booked a conference room at the Hilton Hotel in Brooklyn, and packed the place. The purpose of the reals state seminar, which included Detroit Title and Escrow Owner Emma Elder-Howell, Opulent Realty Team Broker Marcus Twyman, real estate investor Azikiwe Johnson, and Brooklyn-based Express Capital Financing Loan Officer Simon Rishty, was to teach New Yorkers how to buy properties in Detroit.
Asia Denson grew up beside her grandfather who was a construction worker. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology, she went on to receive her Masters of Science in Construction Management. Equipped with both knowledge and experience, she started her own construction company in 2010.
At Denson Construction Services, a construction and property investment company, Denson is in charge of the estimating, the project managing, the marketing, and overseeing the finances. Her crew consists of subcontractors.

Denson believes the time to invest in Detroit is now. She is using tools like the seminar to spread the word of business opportunity and to help rehabilitate her hometown. She also encourages her investors to be homeowners.
“I remember the glory days — well the glory days of my era of Detroit. And I remember how blocks used to look. They were vibrant, they were full of families, people cared, they were respectful. You knew not to step on Ms. So-In-So’s grass because she was gonna pop you. And I think, me, my philosophy is that I’m rehabbing Detroit one house at a time and I’m making Detroit beautiful again,” said Denson to WDET.org.
At the seminar, Denson spoke about how she purchased a structure for $2,500 and with the right tools renovated it into a habitable building. However, she did not make the business seem like a piece of cake. She reassured the audience that buying the buildings is just one part to the process, but the structures are stripped, everything needs to be refurbished and replaced, paperwork needs to be completed, and that is the harder part.

“What I found out was that a lot of minorities don’t know the business side. They can do an amazing job but they have no idea how to handle the paperwork. And the paperwork, from what I’ve been taught in school, is really where the money is,” said Denson.
She hopes to use these educational seminars to teach people how to acquire to tools needed to be successful investors.
