Devin Doherty and Doherty Real Estate Group The Strength of a Team:
Blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit, a drive to succeed and the strength of a supportive
and encouraging family, Devin Doherty proved his mettle early in life. Growing up in
Chicago, he displayed a remarkable technological acumen while still in elementary
school; he even earned a prize for building a computer in the 1970s. The oldest of five
children he was outgoing and ambitious, selling various products door to door and
garnering awards for his efforts. After his family relocated to California in 1979, Devin
caught the eye of IBM headhunters, who recruited him into an executive management
program when he was just 14 years old. After completing an intense training curriculum
he launched a technology career that thrived until the market crash of the late 1980s.
Devin’s interest in technology fueled his entrepreneurial efforts as he helped found and
develop a number of Web 1.0 companies. “Some were successes and some weren’t,” he
recalls. “But I loved the process of navigating and facilitating deals. I thrived on being
involved in the business development aspect of these companies.” His firsthand accounts
of what worked –and what didn’t- in business provided Devin with invaluable experience
as he prepared for a new challenge as a real estate professional. After acquiring his
license he embarked upon the journey through a career that would enable him to
maximize his business, technological and interpersonal skills. Two decades later he
continues to excel in his field, earning a reputation as one of the region’s leading agents.
Early in his real estate career, Devin’s focus was on building an investment portfolio of
distressed and short sale properties. In addition to scouting properties, he soon became
hands-on with rehabilitation efforts as well. In 2000 he devoted himself to real estate as
a project manager, licensed contractor and agent.
