Meet Our President & Founder,
I believe that there are important decisions in one’s life that are truly invaluable – buying a home is one of those decisions and choosing the homebuilder is a privilege to the builder. My number one priority is for Century to be that builder because a home is not only a place you come home to every day, it’s where families share memories together, where life-growing changes happen that can never be replaced.
I have always believed that one achieves excellence only by cultivating and maintaining a sense of passion about something. It’s difficult to feel truly passionate about more than just a few things. Some that come to mind include one’s family, lifelong hobbies or past-times, and the sense of accomplishment that fills a productive and rewarding day. One of my passions is building homes. I have a strong interest in its ability to help customers acquire a valuable asset – a new home. For most people, it’s not just an investment that will grow in value. A new home is the most important purchase a person will make because a home is where the future lies.
In today’s world, more than ever before, it’s important to consider the comfort, convenience and security a new home represents. Few things in a lifetime will generate more precious memories than good times at home. Today’s modern home provides a foundation for family, personal and professional growth.
