Mike Serrao, General Manager and Owner
With more than a dozen years experience in the construction and home development industry in Calgary, Mike has seen – and done – almost everything on a worksite. And he has as much experience offsite as well: project planning, scheduling, and managing all the moving pieces and people of a new build or renovation.
Even when creating the initial plans, Mike can see the completed project in his head; it’s just a matter of steps to reach it. But it’s the creativity involved with each of those steps that Mike enjoys the most. And by the time a project is actually complete, he’s so invested in it that he always finds it hard to turn over the keys.
Before Darren started developing property and building homes, he spent eight years in the NHL, playing for teams like the Mighty Ducks and Boston Bruins.
When he moved into real estate development, he didn’t start small. He started by creating the Van Impe Subdivision at Candle Lake, SK. The subdivision is a lakefront resort community covering 27 acres and holding 82 lots.
Darren loved the process of developing property and went looking for other projects. Mike and Darren had been friends for years, so when Darren was looking to partner with someone, Mike was a natural choice. They each bring a diverse mix of skills and talents to their partnership and the projects they work on.
