Profitable & Growing Premier Custom Home Builder

Location: Northwest Michigan

Industry: Luxury Home Builder

Listing ID: CK250918MB

Status: Sold

Listing Description

This builder is a premier custom luxury home building company that has a strong, established reputation for high integrity, customer service and quality. There are an over-whelming number of home building companies doing business in Michigan and many of these companies appear for a few years only to quickly disappear when the economy gets weak and reappear when home building begins to boom again, often under a different name. With a 30-year history, the owner has built a top trusted name in the building industry and has developed one of the most well-known brands for luxury custom home building and remodeling in Northern Michigan.

Some other key differentiators include:

  • The company has prospered and continues to grow its already healthy footprint in the lucrative segment of custom home building focused on luxury lakefront living.
  • Over $13.3 million in active work-in-process business with $6.7 million remaining to be billed and another $1.3 million in projects awaiting to be awarded.
  • A culture that begins with listening to customers, operating with integrity and making the customer’s vision a shared vision.
  • An exceptionally strong brand built within their focused geography and beyond.
  • Besides a focus on building luxury homes, the company is a go-to resource for performing major remodeling projects and additional structures.
  • Several identified growth opportunities for a new owner.
  • The company not only survived the great recession, it found a way to prosper and position themselves for the growth they have realized.
