Sal immigrated to the United States on April 17th, 1967 from his hometown in Paternopoli, Italy to the Horsham, PA area. He worked as a brick mason and purchased his first building lot in the Reading area in 1972. After several years building homes in the Reading area he decided to re-focus his company on the Montgomery County area. It was in Montgomery County during 1982 that Sal purchased his first community and incorporated Sal Lapio Homes.
Sal has worked tirelessly to earn a reputation of building high quality homes with unquestioned integrity. It helps that Sal listens to his Buyers and includes many of the features and home designs that they want, all at an affordable price. Sal’s mission has resulted in a solid home building company that is in 46th year and will soon top off its 3,000th home. Sal isn’t relaxing just yet; he still visits each community several times a month looking for ways to improve each home.
Sal understands that he can’t build the homes himself and relies on his talented team and a select group of craftsmen and professionals many of which have worked with him for over 20 years.
Today, Sal and Maria are preparing for the future growth of the home building company and are pleased to have their daughters Linda and Rosann join the management team. Linda has been working with her Dad in the homebuilding company in for over 27 years. For over 20 years Rosann has been managing the families operations of the Bella Vista, Mainland and Morgan Hill (public) Golf Courses as well as the restaurants and banquet facilities located at each course, Mainland Grill, The View at Morgan Hill, La Massaria and The Markley Grille. Linda and Rosann’s wealth of experience and knowledge are priceless additions to the management team as we plan for the future.
Sal’s growing team looks forward to continuing his guiding principles of “building high value quality homes with unquestioned integrity while taking care of each Homeowner at every step of the way”.
