PR Homes was officially formed in 2000 by Paul Calcagno and Rick Benson to continue their home building partnership. Paul and Rick had been working on many projects together since 1993 and found that their knowledge of real estate and construction was very complimentary. We are very committed to building high quality homes that stand the test of time. PR Homes fills a niche in the market for consumers looking for a high quality home at a reasonable price.
PR Homes has extensive experience in real estate development, sales, marketing, customer relations, construction and design. Paul and Rick take a very hands on approach to every aspect of the home building process and like to work closely with all parties involved, from the owners, and the architect to all of the subcontractors. We are always there when you need us. We think creating a new home should be an exciting and enjoyable experience and we are committed to making that happen.
