The pride of the Filipino American community in New Jersey, Dresden Baluyot, is a multi-disciplinary entrepreneur with a passion for building relationships. With his background in hospitality and brand management, Dresden has used his expertise and network to catapult himself into other facets of the real estate business and food/beverage industries.
Dresden Baluyot is a partner of Sherlock Homes Investment Group, a real estate investment company focused on purchasing, holding, and selling overlooked opportunities. The Sherlock Homes Investment Group works with savvy individuals looking to invest in the real estate industry. Their clients are typically financially stable people who have the extra liquid assets needed to get involved in great opportunities for potential growth and build generational wealth for their families.
In addition to this, Dresden Baluyot is a New Jersey licensed realtor and partner of the B&G Group of Absolute Homes Realty. The B&G Group is founded on the principle of building lifelong relationships rather than just looking to close real-estate transactions. The group believes that by building authentic relationships, all the rest will follow. And indeed, this model has proven to be very successful for the group so far, and the group is looking forward to forging more of these relationships and expanding their networks. The B&G Group works with established professionals with a stable career in a solid financial situation looking to buy their first home or upgrade to their dream home.
Dresden Baluyot is also a co-founder and managing partner of The Great Time Group, a New York City hospitality group whose first project is The Cabin NYC, a cozy, rustic cottage-like space located in the East Village. Dresden makes valuable contributions to the leadership team with his years of food and beverage experience. A New Jersey native, Dresden’s hospitality background spans from small, independently owned restaurants to large franchise venues. Throughout his career, he has proudly demonstrated that he has the heart and desire to make any business thrive.
The Cabin NYC is a cozy, rustic, and comfortable cottage-like space with a full-service bar serving unique specialty cocktails and mouth-watering classic American dishes with a creative twist created for sharing. “We built the Cabin as a place for people to escape to and make them feel at ease and settled—their home away from home,” said Dresden Baluyot.
What separates Dresden from other entrepreneurs is his work ethic and drive to succeed. He was raised by Filipino immigrant parents in central New Jersey, who taught him at a young age that he can achieve anything he wants to do as long as he works for it. Growing up, Dresden saw them commute to work in NYC for over 20 years just so they can provide for the family and give him and his three siblings a quality life. Dresden sees his parents as his heroes, and seeing them sacrifice so much and work that hard has forever inspired him to put in the work in everything he does.
“One of my lifelong dreams was to open up my own business. And after years of hard work, many wins and even more losses, I was able to fight through everything life threw at me and turn my dreams into reality. Even with my real estate business and my restaurant finally being established and thriving, I am determined to keep going. My success up to this point has only fueled me to work that much harder in order to sustain the positive momentum and keep building my legacy,” Dresden said.
