The interiors of their homes have many included enhanced features, and the exteriors are sturdy, attractive and designed to suit the surrounding community.
BusinessInterviews.com: What initially inspired you to move from architecture to construction? How did that decision help to shape the direction and vision of your future to come?
Jalal: When Mohammad and I graduated from College in 1981 there was a financial downturn and most architects were down-sizing. We decided to create our own jobs and do something we were familiar with…building. Our father was a master builder and with the advice of our bankers we started our own home building company.
This was one of the best decisions in our lives, because with our architectural background, we started designing our homes, developing our own land and providing our customers with the best homes money can buy.
BusinessInterviews.com: What are some ways that the homebuilding and construction industry has changed and evolved since you first launched your company in the early 1980’s?
Jalal: We now build even better homes with more energy efficiency (better wall and ceiling insulation, Low E glass vinyl windows, insulation in foundation, etc.). Also our designs have changed. We now have larger windows, taller ceilings, larger masters, more open floor plans, more versatility in room usage. Also, technology has improved the safety of the homes with high tech security systems, GFCI outlets, smoke alarms, etc.
Our enhanced features have improved as well. Items such as granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, oil rubbed bronze faucets, pendant lighting, and hand textured walls are now standard in most of our homes.
BusinessInterviews.com: Can you talk about the key components you think about when it comes to building a community?
Jalal: We consider the school system, highway access, water, sewer and utility availability, topography of the land, desirability of the area (near restaurants, hospitals, grocery stores, crime rate) We also consider the demographics in regard to affordability, ability to purchase, and need of new homes.
BusinessInterviews.com: I know that you believe that giving back to the community is important. What influences the decision making process when it comes to choosing the charities or organizations you become involved with?
Jalal: First and most importantly we want to help organizations that help with basic human needs such as food and shelter. We have contributed to well-known charities such as United way, Food bank, Habitat for Humanity,
Second, we pay attention to victims of natural disaster, tsunami relief, and devastation from fires, tornados, and hurricanes.
Third we help organizations researching to eradicate diseases.
