PALATIAL HOMES: Builder Spotlight

Bulletin Board | 21 | www.shorebuilders.org handles all the construction aspects. As a female builder Linda works to create lasting relationships with their subcontractors (many of whom have been working with Palatial Homes for many years) and customers that goes beyond the work. The history of Palatial Homes is set in a solid friendship between the two colleagues. Linda & Lou have been working together since 1992 when she hired him to build a home for her and her family. After that build out she went to work for Lou for a few years and developed a strong knowledge of the building industry. During that time Linda purchased a homesite and asked Lou to build another home for her to sell. Four years after they first started working together, their partnership was formed. Linda and Lou became Palatial Homes. Linda runs the company and Lou

She always makes time to ask about their families and catch up on kids and grandkids. In today’s business world, this personal touch is rare and special. As a custom home builder, Palatial Homes differentiates themselves by providing hands-on, personal service to their home owners. Since word of mouth and referrals are the main source of their work, Linda and Lou go the extra mile during all phases of the buying and building process. They make a special effort to ensure their home owners are involved from day one, and they work with their customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, before, during, and after construction of the home is complete. These business practices give the company an edge over any other custom builder in the area.

In addition, Linda believes that being local and building in the area she lives in is a key component to her company’s success. This philosophy makes the location of every home they build crucial. “I never buy a property I would not live in myself,” states Linda. She continues, “We are currently building in Ocean and Wall townships. We will either buy a property and build the home for our customer, or sometimes customers have the land and we build to their specifications. We can do anything our buyers want in a fully custom home.” As a long-time member of Shore Builders Association of Central NJ, and past president, Linda finds that the association is a valuable resource for her company. “I have been active

through 2009. I can’t stress enough to other builders how important it is to join this association and participate.” As a two-time recipient of the BEAM (Builders Employing Associate Members) Award, Linda has demonstrated her dedication to the associate members as well. Palatial Homes currently participates in the new Builder Program at SBACNJ. “The builder program is a great way to help the association, as well as a convenient way for myself and Lou to participate in all the association events. The program fee includes our yearly membership dues and provides recognition for our company on the SBACNJ website, as well as other publications to the membership. Every builder member should sign up and participate in this program,” Linda explains.

Building custom homes can be a stressful business, but Palatial Homes has mastered the process with their award-winning expertise. Both Linda and Lou view the business as fun, and highly rewarding.
