I have known and represented Shane Acevedo for almost 15 years and have been involved from the beginning as he built his real estate development company and his team of professionals. After practicing law for 40 years and representing many developers I can say, without reservation, that I have been impressed with Shane’s ability to identify opportunities in the real estate market, creatively structure transactions and execute on his vision in order to deliver great homes for his clients and customers. His broad experience in all facets of the real estate business, including land acquisition, finance structure, marketing, development and construction are what enables him to deliver great homes and be a success In a very competitive real estate market. Shane also has identified excellent people to work with, from his construction partner, Ryan Courech, to his engineering firm, to marketing and sales. My team and law firm are proud to be a part of Shane’s team and look forward to many years of his success.
I have been very impressed with the development team that Shane Acevedo has put together. He and his team have been able to locate and contract exceptional development opportunities that oftentimes are not on the open market. Once his team has the property under contract, he makes short work of getting the entitlements needed to develop the properties, secures the financing, and gets the sitework and construction started promptly. Ryan Courech builds an outstanding product at reasonable pricing, even in this inflationary environment; Dwayne Gray and his legal team does a great job getting the municipality approvals, as well as closing the transactions. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been part of 2 of Shane’s projects, both were very successful and profitable! And both have very happy end users enjoying their homes now!
If you are thinking of renovating or building new, Meridian should be on your list. I have worked with them over a few years, and they are quality contractors who stand behind their work, and I am sure other past clients would agree. When you hire them, you will work directly with the principals of the company, they are hands on and communicate well.
It is a big decision to renovate or build, and Meridian understands the process and budgeting so there are no surprises. I have worked with them professionally and personally, they are great.
I recently purchased a new townhouse built by Meridian Homes. It has been a pleasure from the start of this process to closing. From Day 1 - Howard Axner and Ryan Courech provided outstanding customer service. They were and still are always available to answer questions and provide support. They went over and above making sure I had all the information I needed after the sale including all electrical, HVAC, Plumbing (and more) contacts as well as providing detailed information about the workings of the house. The house is well constructed with all the latest in modern development.
Not only did they build my house but they also established great relationships with my neighbors during the development including providing amenities for their homes as well.
I picked a great developer--Meridian Homes!
Our new home truly is our dream home! We were so blown away at the level of detail that was considered for every single room in this house. From the unique tile work in each bathroom, paneling done on the first floor, the dream kitchen, etc. It is more than we could have ever dreamt of (and certainly would not have picked out ourselves!). The quality of materials used is exceptional. And the quality of work met all of our expectations. If we ever leave this house (not likely!), we would move to another Meridan home!
Our team has been working with A&R Real Estate Development Team alongside their other partner Meridan homes for several years now. The team is very effective at selecting development sites others would turn away due to their ability to quickly and knowledgeably navigate the intricate process of approvals and site preparations. Shane and his crew have been making some very impressive and impactful developments in our area since working with them. We would recommend them to anybody searching for a full encompassing development and building team.
We have received several industry awards for our superior design and quality craftsmanship.
