Builder's Story

For nearly three decades, David Capretto has been helping Western New York Families find just the right home. In fact, that is why he started his own company, Capretto Homes!

"I was working as a Realtor selling used homes," David recalls. "I became tired of showing countless homes to families who could not find that right home." He decided to solve his customers' problems, by building the right homes in the best locations for a fair price, himself. Then, in 2002, he bought Forbes Homes and merged the two companies, creating Forbes Capretto Homes. It was a challenging, though ultimately rewarding, experience. "There were a lot of different personalities and practices involved", said David. "I did a lot of listening, had a lot of conversations about the future and how everything would work out for the best." Sounds like a plan for success?! IT WAS!
