Jones_-1010

Long time friends and partners Mike Jones and Bill Lyons founded Devex Properties in 2008. Their pioneering approach to “fixing and flipping” living spaces makes them one of the most sought-after design and development firms in the Denver area. Between the two of them, from concept to completion, Bill and Mike have overseen construction on over 1000 homes.

Whether it’s a genuine “dirt start” or employing their signature technique, building from the top up—or “Pop-Tops”, it’s what Devex does that makes them so special. Their use of clean lines, on-trend materials and finishes, and a passionate attention to detail create classic, modern living spaces that somehow feel ahead of their time.

Bill Lyons

Co-Founder/Manager

Jones_-1043Bill initiates the design/build process for each new home and works closely with architects, designers and engineers to discuss the vision for the new home to entice and land potential buyers.

Bill’s career began with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from University of Denver. From there, he moved on to obtain his general contractor and real estate brokerage licenses. For eight years, Bill worked as a real estate developer; overseeing the planning, land development and construction of hundreds of condominiums and single-family homes throughout the Denver area.

In 2008 Bill partnered with long-time friend, Mike Jones, to found Devex Properties. Over the next five years, Bill and Mike “fixed and flipped” over 200 properties. During the course of his career, Bill has helmed the construction of close to 1000 homes, bringing his enduring passion for creating exceptional living spaces to every project.

Bill is a highly involved member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He is also a youth leader in the Boy Scouts of America. Bill enjoys spending time with his wife and 5 children and in his “spare time” he enjoys training and competing in Ironman triathlons.

Mike Jones

Co-Founder/Manager

Jones_-1036A Denver native, Mike’s career began “cutting its teeth” in the real estate and mortgage industries. Mike attended Brigham Young University and served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in El Salvador where he became fluent in Spanish. His service with the Hispanic community has been invaluable building buyer relationships and has helped him excel in the industry. During this time Mike obtained his Colorado real estate broker license and has been active brokering deals ever since. Prior to starting a new venture to “fix and flip” with his partner, Bill Lyons, Mike already had a background in funding and managing residential rehab projects as investment properties for himself and other partners. Mike has a specific “knack” for understanding the sub markets within the Denver area. It gives him the ability to work closely with partners to design and choose the most current and unique finish specifications to create an especially appealing product for potential buyers.

Mike loves working with young people and spends a significant amount of time coaching youth football and basketball throughout the year. The impact he has had on the lives of these young people and their impact on him as a coach goes way above and beyond any physical skills they learn. Mike, his wife and their six children enjoy calling Colorado their home, and they take advantage of the many outdoor activities the area has to offer.
