With its family ownership, The Warmington Group enjoys many advantages over other homebuilders, President and CEO Jim Warmington Jr. says. Along with having the ability to make decisions quickly, “The family’s reputation has also allowed us to get access to many sellers and opportunities,” he says.

Kohala Creative Construction LLC strives to be a one-stop shop for its clients, CEO Michael Bonahan says. “We’re able to provide finished products from concept to completion,” he states. Based in Kamuela, Hawaii, the general contractor specializes in residential development and construction, as well as small commercial projects. “Ninety percent of our business [occurs] on the Big Island,” Bonahan says.

Victor International is a marriage between art and science. At least that is how Chairman David V. Johnson views the construction company he founded more than 30 years ago in Michigan.

Investing in a home is often seen as a cornerstone of the American dream. In Texas, Gehan Homes has for decades been building and selling stylish new homes that are competitively priced and fit the individual needs of the company’s buyers.

“We have about 50 model homes around the state and use conventional and sophisticated means to bring traffic into those sites,” CEO Tim Gehan says. “People find us, and we do a good portion of our business through realtors. In Texas, a lot of homebuyer decisions are driven by the quality of school district, and we evaluate that to be sure our properties are in desirable communities.”

Never faltering from its corporate commitment to enhance the lives of its residents, AvalonBay Communities Inc. has earned a leading position among multifamily residential real estate corporations operating in the United States. Headquartered in Arlington, Va., AvalonBay focuses on acquiring, developing, redeveloping and managing best-in-class apartment communities in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Pacific Northwest, and Northern and Southern California.

At the 2012 Aurora Awards – sponsored by the Southeast Building Conference – WCI Communities took home three awards: best detached single family home, best attached for-sale home and best recreational facility. As a 60-year-old developer that emerged from bankruptcy in 2009 as a reorganized company, the recent recognitions signal to all of Florida that the masterplan developer with nine communities in its current portfolio is just as viable as ever.

In fall 2009, Concord, Ontario-based real estate firm Aspen Ridge Homes began construction on one of its most unique properties to date – 77 Charles West situated in downtown Toronto. Typical mixed-use projects feature a combination of residential and commercial, such as condominiums with hotel or retail spaces. But combining an educational space with high-end residential makes 77 Charles West anything but typical, Project Manager Peter Szlichta says.  “People tend to equate condos with retail or a hotel/condo as an acceptable format,” he acknowledges. “This in itself is something new.”

Homebuilders operating between Abbotsford and Delta, British Columbia, understand that land value drives the market in this region. Land is, and always will be, at a premium in a geographic area bounded by an ocean to the west, an international border to the south, and mountains to the north.

Morningstar Homes was founded on the premise that more can be done with less to deliver luxury single-family homes in the Fraser Valley, lower mainland region of British Columbia with the right combination of innovative design and efficient use of space. After building 16 homes in its first year of operation in 1999, Morningstar Homes now closes on about 150 homes annually that range between 1,500 and 3,000 square feet.
