“I started this company 40 years ago and still love visiting the sites, talking with trades and homeowners. Not much has changed since I framed my first house, it will always be about the family we’re building for.”

GINO LUCCHESE, FOUNDER HIGHMARK HOMES

WHO IS HIGHMARK HOMES?

 

It starts with family. Highmark Homes began as a joint venture between Gino Lucchese and his brother, and continued to grow over the decades, expanding to encompass his children, and then his grandchildren. The pride that has driven generations to come together beneath the banner of Highmark Homes stems from an unwavering dedication to family, both ours and yours.

Since its inception, Highmark has built hundreds of homes across the GTA, with a focus on quality construction, vibrant communities, and an unwavering commitment to our customers. As we grow with the dynamic future of homebuilding, Highmark Homes is entering the world of high-rise with brand new condominiums coming to Pickering and Whitby,
continuing our goal to build a strong future for Durham Region.
