John and Gail Bibeau started Tri-County Pest Control, Inc. in 1985. From that business they began to offer structural termite damage repair and certificate of occupancy repair for the sale of real estate, which went hand-in-hand with their termite certification business.
In 1988 they purchased Willis Hardware in Penns Grove to supply this business with material and supplies. John then began to invest heavily in real estate foreclosures and investment properties. He performed all acquisition repairs and then the final sales himself. In 1989 John and Gail began to build residential new construction for customers and on speculations.
In 2003 John decided to divide the construction business and the pest control business for several reasons. First the pest control company had grown to a two million dollar a year company with seventeen employees and he wanted to separate the liabilities. Second John was interested in doing land development for large tract housing and providing all infrastructure and different aspect of the home construction. This company became Tri-County Real Estate Maintenance. Today the Company has successfully developed residential housing. Still performs residential home repairs and builds six to ten new homes per year.
John Bibeau is the President of Tri-County Real Estate Maintenance Company. His experience includes over twenty years of residential construction and over five years of commercial construction. He currently supervises the management of 361 personally owned residential units and 18 personally owned commercial locations.
