With over 25 years of residential home building experience and a second generation Delaware home builder, Anthony started his career in the trenches learning and absorbing every aspect of construction from the ground up – from installing block foundations to putting the finishing touches on a completed home, and everything in between.
In 1992 he joined a fortune 500 home building company where for 10 years he honed his skills in construction techniques, sales, land development, marketing and customer service. In 2000, Anthony started working for a local home building company for which he oversaw all aspects of the day to day operations. The company grew to one of the largest privately held home builders in Delaware. Over the course of the next 10 years the company built over 1,000 homes in the Delaware and Southern Chester County areas. Anthony’s ability to recognize land values, acquire, develop and deliver a quality home is how he is known best by his peers.
