Gary McDonald - Since 1970, it has been my privilege and good fortune to develop choice properties into unparalleled residential communities. Prior projects include neighborhoods such as Lake Van Ness, The Masters Collection, Country Club at The Fort and Copper Ridge Estates. These communities have earned a reputation as some of the most prestigious and highly prized real estate in all of Fresno and Clovis.

Our current developments at Copper River Ranch, Copperline Estates, and Morgan Run, the newest Traditions community, are all destined to become priviledged addresses.

If you’re looking for the height of craftsmanship, luxurious neighborhoods, and enduring investment value you’ve arrived at the right place. Please enjoy the many helpful features of this web site and let it assist you in planning your visit to one of our communities. My associates and I look forward to building your next dream home and welcoming you to a neighborhood that is just right for you.

Wathen Mansionettes - Spalding G.

Spalding Wathen originals are legendary for their quality and attention to detail. To date, the Wathen family has built over 10,000 Mansionettes in the San JoaquinValley and while Spalding passed away in 2005, his immediate family is proud to carry on his legacy for thoughtful design, personal attention and quality craftsmanship.


Granville Homes -  At Granville, building homes has been a legacy. But just as importantly, it is why they build. Innovative designs, progressive building techniques and neighborhoods that foster responsible growth has been their pursuit and destination. It is a demonstration of experience, principles and how they believe their homeowners wish to live. Granville has built over 5000 homes in the Central Valley spanning more than three decades. But what gives them an immense sense of fulfillment is knowing that they provide hope to others by contributing to better schools, designing healthier communities, with a sincere commitment to social awareness and justice.
