Ray’s having too much fun.

After graduating in 1992, Bill joined the framing crew and spent the next five years in the field, learning every nuance of his father’s definition of the perfect home before moving into management. Bill became president of the company in 2003. He is a past president of the Western Massachusetts Home Builders Association and holds the Certified Green Professional™ designation from the National Association of Home Builders.

Paul oversees the tools that show clients exactly what their home will look like with the options they are considering, making their decisions clearer and easier. Despite his expertise in technology, what gives Paul the most satisfaction is developing a rapport with clients and making them feel comfortable—every step of the way.
