Meet The Team
Pierre Marsan, President and Founder of Hibiscus Homes
Pierre Marsan began his home building business in 1989. With lots of help from family and friends, many long days, nights and weekends,Hibiscus Homes has became one of the most solid and reputable home building businesses in the greater Orlando area.
In his 20 years as a builder, he enjoyed early success and then survived and even thrived as the Orlando market began its free fall in late 2006.
Pierre believes that the success of a home building company is dependent upon a team of talented and dedicated employees and subcontractors.
‘Subcontractors who take pride in their work are the life and blood of our company. Our job is to make sure our trades do the quality work we expect both for ourselves and our customers. We are always working towards putting out a finished product that we can proudly put our name upon. Hibiscus Homes has built their reputation on delivering a quality product on-time and at a reasonable price. This along with follow-through with our buyers after they have moved into their new home is what has allowed Hibiscus Homes to build for so many clients, their friends and their family members on a repeat basis. Our referrals and repeat clients continue to grow. There is no better compliment than when someone calls and says ‘Remember us, you built our home 17 years ago and now we are ready to build again.”
Pierre believes that the basic principles will always be the same, which is building a quality product at a fair price and follow-through after the sale. However, the market is constantly changing and we have to change with it. Energy efficient homes, sustainable products and building “Green” are here to stay. The company has seen a change in demand, where bigger is not necessarily better. Effectively utilizing every inch of floor space in the most efficient way possible is more important than ever. Even the younger families are building smaller floor plans with more energy efficient features that will pay dividends in utility savings, maintenance and even property taxes for years to come. “The transition over the last few years has been interesting for us as a company. We know being at the leading edge is where we will need to continue to be in order to provide the type of product our buyers expect.”
Everyone has a mission statement it seems. Ours is still the same. Build the best product at the best possible price and take care of our customers both before and after they move into their new home.
Pierre has used this downturn to enhance his team attracting very seasoned staff from various national and regional builders. As a result, his team boasts industry titans in their respective disciplines.
