Vice President – Sunesis Homes
With close to 30 years of experience in the building industry in the Dayton and Cincinnati area, Scott brings an exceptional level of commitment combined with years of experience. He began his career back in high school working as a laborer at a lumber yard. During his college years, he worked his way into a management position with a building supplier that provided building materials to home builders in the Southwest Ohio area. While working 15+ years in the industry, he refined his knowledge of the numerous parts and pieces that go into building a new home. Ultimately, a custom home builder and land development company sought him out and offered him a position where he continued to fine-tune his skills and gained additional experience in building custom homes.
Scott has successfully overseen the construction of over 700 custom homes, from start to completion in the Southwest Ohio area. Given his diverse experience, he thoroughly understands all aspects of home construction and can offer pre-construction assistance along with technical knowledge to those looking at building a new home. During the entirety of construction, Scott stays involved and maintains communication with all clients. He has a hands-on mentality and is involved with every aspect of the build, so homebuyers can feel confident in their overall experience with Sunesis Homes.
Over the years, Scott has developed strong relationships with top suppliers and subcontractors throughout the area through an approach of partnership and respect. Scott’s ongoing participation in both local and national conferences and educational events, such as the National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show, keep him current with trends and advancements in the industry. He continues to be active with the local Home Builders Association, and served on the Board of Directors for the HBA of Dayton in 2008 and 2009.
Scott’s determination to provide a positive building experience through honesty and integrity is equal to his desire to be open and transparent with clients to gain trust. He knows this is the single, largest investment our clients will ever make; and he is attentive to the emotion that is attached to this by walking clients through each step of the process.
