Case Studies Real Estate Development

Milhaus Development

In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a new developer has just come to town. Milhaus Development, one of the largest developers in the Midwest, began scouting the City of Bridges in 2014, and almost immediately set its sights on Lawrenceville, a neighborhood on the east side of the city. “Here was a neighborhood that has some of the […]

Greenman-Pedersen Inc.

The developer of Spaulding Green, a 400-acre housing community in Clarence, New York, realized target buyers preferred homes built into hillsides with walk-out basements. The land being developed was essentially flat, though. To make the walk-out basements possible, Greenman-Pedersen Inc. (GPI) got creative and turned flat land into varied terrain with ponds, hills and elevated […]

The Concession Residences

Almost 50 years ago, Jack Nicklaus, widely considered one of the best-ever golfers, conceded the final putt in the 1969 Ryder Cup, a biennial men’s golf competition between Europe and the United States, to British competitor Tony Jacklin. The move, known as “the concession,” meant that Jacklin didn’t have to risk the final putt, which […]

Joan Magill – Residential Realty Group Inc.

What do you do when a small buffalo herd appears on the property you are managing? Joan Magill remembers asking herself this question when nine buffalo escaped from a nearby farm and started running through one of the communities her company manages. This is just one story from Magill’s upcoming book, “Condolirious”, in which she […]

Atapco Properties

When you’re an established developer, switching markets and business models is difficult, but for Maryland-based Atapco properties, the transition is worth it if helps people and the environment. Patrick Coggins, vice president of development, says the company has spent the last several years transitioning away from “greenfield” suburban projects, in which virgin land is cleared […]

Neyer Properties

The idea of redeveloping the Baldwin Complex, and more importantly the former Baldwin manufacturing building, has been with Dan Neyer for decades. As the president and CEO of a Cincinnati-based commercial real estate developer called Neyer Properties, he’s kept an eye on the property, waiting for the right moment when he could return the building […]

Pratt Home Builders

In Southeast Tennessee, the housing market has been largely spared the booms and busts of other sunny climes and is projected by such observers as Fortune Builders magazine to grow steadily for at least the next few years, and a prime beneficiary is likely to be Pratt Home Builders, a family-owned company since 1998 that […]

Smart Growth

When Christopher Porto describes his ideal Oakland, California, he envisions a city almost devoid of cars. But that’s not all he envisions. Through his real estate development company, Smart Growth, he imagines developing the area into tightknit communities that are closer to transit corridors, reducing the need for cars and increasing a sense of place; […]

Apple Tree Contractors

Apple Tree Contractors fills a tough niche in the construction industry—it handles the hard stuff. Specifically, it takes many projects where building and zoning code compliance are called into question and then works with officials to resolve them. “It’s a double-edged sword,” jokes Chad Simpson, project manager and corporate secretary. “On one hand, it’s great […]

Pier Construction & Development LLC

When a former competitor asked Michael Thomas to start a construction business during the height of the economic recession, he said yes. It wasn’t the logical response—at the time, other companies were laying off or going out of business—but it’s worked out nicely. President and CEO Michael Thomas founded Pier Construction & Development LLC in […]

Bill Keaton was very impressive in raising money from advertising which resulted in ASE getting the cover story, so thank you Bill. Lia Prysunka and Jeanee Dudley are both very impressive individuals who deserve a lot of credit for this featured piece. They were both very patient and accepting of any changes we suggested. The format, quality, and resolution was awesome. To sum it all up: Our upper management, who never have been high on PR and things of this nature said that it was "absolutely fantastic" and were blown away. They now are requesting multiple copies of the full magazine and are very proud of the work you all put in. Thanks again.

What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing

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.
