Much of the value of working with Porter Development comes from the fact that we can completely manage every phase of the development process. To do that, we employ experts at each and every stage. Finance professionals. Construction managers. Interior designers. Many on our staff grew their skills for years at specialized firms before joining Porter Development. Some have been with us since our inception.

Having such an accomplished team under one roof leads to valuable collaboration. And beautiful results.

Meet the team.
