TAVO DevelopmentTAVO Development’s founder draws on his lifelong love of homebuilding in Westchester County, New York.

By Chris Petersen

TAVO Development President Steve Tavolacci has had a lifelong love affair with building homes, and the fourth-generation homebuilder says there’s nothing in the world he would rather be doing. From his days growing up surrounded by the craft to his first job sweeping floors on his father’s projects, Tavolacci says he’s never once considered doing anything else. “As a young kid, I knew this was always what I wanted to do,” he says. “I knew I had a passion for building and gave it all I had.”

TAVO Development’s clients have been the beneficiaries of that passion for more than 18 years now, as the company has built up a strong portfolio of luxury homes in Westchester County, New York. Tavolacci says the company’s reputation as one of the region’s most successful developers and homebuilders has come as a result of the company’s hard work, dedication and adherence to a strict but simple code of ethics.

The company concentrates on building spec homes in Westchester and Fairfield counties in New York, and its primary client base consists of families upgrading from their starter homes, according to Tavolacci. No matter what the finished product turns out to be, he says, every TAVO Development home is built on the idea that it must be someplace where he would want his family to live. Thanks to that philosophy, TAVO Development has built homes that it and its clients can be proud of.
