Born and raised in Quincy, Massachusetts, Jake spent more than ten years of his life as a football coach for the City College of San Francisco, followed by eight years as an Operations Manager in the logistics field. Combining the two sectors, Jake soon discovered how a harmonious blend of both disciplines renders an exceptional general contractor – having gained impeccable team building, organization, and planning skills along the way.
During his late-teen years, Jake spent his weekends assisting his family carpentry and painting business with all kinds of contracting projects. After years of coaching and corporate work, he decided to focus primarily on design, remodeling, and a number of large scale real estate projects.
Jake currently lives in Pembroke with his two children and continues to run his successful contracting company Drohan Development, working on diverse projects for a wide range of clients in the South Shore area. There’s no surprise that they all come for one thing – unrivaled service round-the-clock, no matter the project size or complexity. Jake continues his excellent work to this date, transforming properties for the better.

Meet our designer Corey! She was born in Weymouth and now lives in Easton, MA. Corey bought her first house in 2020 and began by designing her homes interior. Her goal was to design a space that was cohesive with a farmhouse feel and a modern undertone. After this experience, Corey realized she had developed a passion in the world of design and made the decision to branch out from there. Corey describes her design style as combination of modern and rustic where she mixes a comfortable yet minimalistic design. Corey takes inspiration from Chip & Joanna Gaines (who doesn’t?!) and her time living Newport, RI where she admired the community and the incredible architecture. However, she has a keen eye to work with her clients to find and bring their vision of any style to life.
In her free time, Corey enjoys horseback riding and hiking. Corey and her husband were married in 2019 and had their wedding in Rangley, Maine. The two enjoy taking road trips across the country to our beautiful national parks.
