Case Studies Real Estate Development

Adam Hergenrother Companies

Adam Hergenrother remembers the exact moment he decided he’d never settle for a life of mediocrity. He was 15—overweight, failing classes, giving into peer pressure to experiment with alcohol and soft drugs. And then one day he just came home and broke down. Enough was enough, he decided. “I just knew I wasn’t going to […]

Heartland Homes

Time was when the potential of solar panels wasn’t widely recognized by conventional builders. It took a young generation to see the light, and among them was Richard Bergman, who, during the late 1970s, would become one of the solar energy pioneers in the Buffalo, New York, area. “I was the first green-certified builder in […]

Spaulding Green

When Dominic Piestrak began gathering builders for a high-end luxury community development in Clarence, New York, a small suburb outside Buffalo, his efforts raised a few eyebrows. It was the late ‘80s, “and everyone told me you’ll never sell them,” the real estate developer recalls. “At that time, Buffalo was a blue-collar town, centered around […]

Galaxy General Contracting Corporation

Driving through New York City, President Steve Zervoudis sees Galaxy General Contracting Corporation’s work in each of the five boroughs. And while it’s always nice to remember a job well done, Zervoudis has the added benefit of remembering what many of these homes and mixed-use apartments buildings were like before Galaxy General Contracting came on […]

Lat Purser & Associates Inc.

Thanks to millennials, there’s a trend afoot: walkability. Walkability is a measure of how “friendly” a neighborhood is to walking. In an ideal scenario, employment, shopping, dining and entertainment can all be accessed on foot rather than by car. Foresighted developers like Lat Purser & Associates Inc., known as LPA, have taken note. In fact, […]

Neeser Construction

Although Neeser Construction, a design-build contractor headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, has been building in northern Nevada since the late ‘90s, Business Development Manager Luke Hermann says he’s never experienced a construction boom as diversified as today’s. “Just recently there has been this influx of growth of major logos, like Tesla, Switch, eBay and Apple investing […]

Rockford Homes

“Five hundred twenty four people in church last Sunday,” he says with a chuckle. “It’s a personal thing; you quantify things. It’s good for background in buying land and figuring out the sewer lines and everything else. Even though we have engineers on-site, it helps to be an engineer to oversee everything.” Given how well […]

DiMarco Constructors

General contractor DiMarco Constructors has built commercial and retail buildings in 15 states, from Michigan to Maine to Kentucky, but one of its largest and most recent projects is smack dab in the middle of its home city of Rochester, New York, which is revitalizing its downtown with more commercial and residential spaces. DiMarco is […]

DLC Residential

Brothers Igor and Russ Krivor noticed a trend back in 2007 that has endured for nearly a decade: “Millennials are renting longer and buying homes later,” they say, citing a statistic that millennials will spend, in aggregate, 80 percent more rent in their lifetimes than baby boomers. The brothers, who co-founded real estate development firm, […]

Highgates Group

Operating amid the hustle and bustle of Canada’s biggest city of Toronto, Joseph Waldman has a knack of seeing regions ripe for development north and south of the 44th parallel and even overseas. The constantly on-the-go president of Highgates Group, Waldman is the man behind many successful projects in such diverse locales as Ontario, Iowa, […]


It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review. From the start of the project, it was apparent that everyone involved was very concerned with accuracy and getting the facts right. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback and ensuring that we were happy with the content and with the manner in which Giroux Glass was described in the finalized piece.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
Working with Kyle at TrueLine Publishing was a great experience. We are quite pleased with how the article about Souder Brothers turned out. The magazine article and photo spread is going to be a very effective tool to use in our marketing. If you have the opportunity to be featured in a project like this, I would recommend doing it. Kyle and his team made the whole process very smooth and we are happy to have been a part of the latest edition of US Builders Review.
— Corinne Schaffer, Project Manager, Souder Brothers Construction
The final product was an exceptionally well written and thorough story integrated with many of our project photos. It is a great endorsement of our company and our work that we are promoting on our website and through social media. We were impressed with the quality of the editorial and the professional follow-through.
— Susan Howell, Marketing Director for Howell Custom Building Group
Everyone that we worked with was polite, professional, responsive & very good to work with. It was amazing to see the ideas transformed into the final product. We are very happy with the end results and would not hesitate to work with them in the future or recommend them to other business!
— James Kowalski, Owner, Kowalski Construction Inc.
The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
