We provide personal service to all our clients, and pride ourselves in going above and beyond.

Meet the Team

Donna Gross

Donna received her bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University and began working in real estate shortly after graduating. She has been in the real estate and building business for more than 38 years, working both in the new home construction field and real estate market. Donna is a licensed real estate broker and obtained her residential contractor license in 2003.

She built her business on personal service and hard work. Her long list of return clients and personal referrals is a testament to her success.

Al Gross

Al has had an interest in architecture and home design since childhood. He received his MBA from the University of Illinois but admits he sometimes regrets not pursuing a degree in architecture. After college, Al worked in the real estate business before deciding to put his lifelong interest to good use.

His dream was to design and build homes that appealed to the consumer—a goal he has achieved many times. Al is licensed by the State of Florida as a building contractor (CBC1253833) and a real estate broker.
