The difference between a custom and a production home can be recognized easily by the public and realtor community. But for Shaddock Homes – whose president, Peter Shaddock, started as a custom homebuilder – the difference is more difficult to detect. “What we do is we give people a custom home without charging a custom home price,” Shaddock emphasizes. “Shaddock Homes is a large-scale, custom homebuilding operation.”

Recently, President Roger Neighbors of Neighbors Construction Co. Inc. (NCCI) received a more-than-welcome “blast from the past.” It was a call from a former client who had hired NCCI in the 1970s, while Roger Neighbors’ father, Pat Neighbors, was still leading the company. “The guy said, ‘I knew your dad in the ’70s, and I’ve been calling around town asking people who’s the best contractor to do apartments, and it turns out that it’s still you guys,’” Neighbors recalls. “He knew us from over 40 years ago, which is great. It’s priceless. That’s the name that we have built over the years, and we continue to build on that.”

Every day, Home Creations Inc. strives to maintain its status as “Oklahoma’s premier new homebuilder.” Some may see this as a lofty goal, but Home Creations has found a formula for its business that keeps it at the top – a combination of quality construction, understanding the needs of homebuyers and always going “above and beyond in fulfilling expectations,” according to Anita Wagoner, marketing and sales director.

As the largest disaster restoration contracting organization in North America – not to mention the first and only green-certified company in its industry – no job is too small or too large for Disaster Kleenup International (DKI). Established in 1974, the Wood Dale, Ill.-based company’s portfolio ranges from $300 toilet overflows to multimillion-dollar disaster relief efforts that followed the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina. No matter what the size, every project receives the same immediate response, attention to detail, technical excellence, quality service and fair pricing, President Dale Sailer asserts.

Many may think the days of knowing your neighbors’ names are long gone, but at Lifestyle Communities, that sense of a connected neighborhood is alive and well. Since 1996, the real estate development company has delivered 10,000 rental and for-sale residential units for the young professional demographic. The company’s specialty is one- and two-bedroom units with a few three-bedroom units. Lifestyle is aware that its 25- to 34-year-old target audience seeks personalized comfort balanced with a thriving social life, and this is why each Lifestyle community delivers both.

As the Gulf Coast continues to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the city of New Orleans intends to create residential developments that far surpass those that washed away, along with strengthening the sense of community within the city. One such development is the Village de Jardin, a new senior housing community owned by the Louisiana Housing Finance Authority.

For David Negrin, the chance to serve new customers keeps the construction and development industries fresh. “That’s really what’s kept me alive,” he says. “You have to look for new markets.” Negrin is the president of Aquilini Development and Construction Inc., a Vancouver-based firm that specializes in developing and building multiresidential communities and mixed-use projects in British Columbia and Western Canada. Founder Luigi Aquilini started the company in 1956.
