Megan E. Maddalone 
Vice President

Megan was born and raised in the beautiful Upstate New York.  Raised in a family of civil engineers and family owned land-surveying firm Megan was brought up around the building and developing industry.  She learned hard work diligence and honesty, they became her core mental foundation.  From the early childhood years of helping her grandfather and father in the family land surveying business out in the empty fields and woods that would soon be developed with roads/structures ignited a passion to set goals to one day be part of the civil development process.  

Megan met James during their college years and they fell in love and joined their passion for life together. Upon marrying in their young 20’s they bought their first home a small city house, a project that would soon propel them into the home renovation business.  Megan’s eye for detail and design and James abilities to turn the visions/concepts into reality turned into a passion for the process.  After two years and twin daughters born they listed the house and turned a decent profit.  Searching for a larger country house they settled on a 1890’s fixer upper.  While James still working a full time sales job and working on the new house nights and weekends they were able to finish the house and move into it. By this time they now their 3rd daughter was born to them. Feeling the itch for a new project they listed the house and made a better profit. Searching for a new project they found a enormous 1870’s farm house.  James decided it was time to fully devote his time to renovating their new project.  After endless days and tireless nights restoring this Greek revival home Megan and James moved in.  This is when James decided that he should offer his abilities out to the community providing home renovation and remodeling services.  

Since the early years Megan and James have personally renovated, lived in and sold multiple homes and have personally re-designed, repaired, renovated, and remodeled close to 1000 homes, businesses and government properties in NY, TX and overseas.  Megan, now a mother of 4 daughters, is still developing her eye for the re-design and development of homes and properties.
