The Story

Hello, I’m Matthew Jones the owner of Slate Drafting, and I’m thrilled to share a bit of my journey and the ethos that shapes the work I do here.

I earned my degree in civil engineering, where I was immersed in the world of drafting and designing structures. I’ve honed my skills as a draftsman, having been around the block, from delving deep into the concrete industry to navigating the intricate world of real estate investing.

I spent about a decade aiding concrete producers with mix designs for various projects. Bridges, tunnels, office buildings - you name it. I’ve also been that guy who isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty remodeling houses. It’s been a passion since high school and led me to become a licensed real estate agent in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

A few years back, I took the plunge into real estate investing full-time. It was one particular house that pushed me down the path to founding Slate Drafting. I had the architectural drawings, but the architect was unyielding - unwilling to make updates and corrections, and flat-out refused to hand over the digital set of drawings.

When I finally got my hands on the drawings, another architect charged me an arm and a leg for a simple set of drawings. It was a hurdle no real estate investor, myself included, should have to jump through. So, armed with my background and a dash of self-taught prowess, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. That's when I got the software and skills to create my own drawings.

Slate Drafting is my response to those hurdles. It’s for real estate investors like you and me, who need quality, affordability, and a partner who understands the ins and outs of real estate investing. Every drawing, and every design is crafted with the precision of my drafting background and the practical insight of a fellow investor.

Welcome to Slate Drafting - where your vision is understood, respected, and meticulously brought to life without breaking the bank.
