Mountainview Building Group is one of the most successful developers in Southern Ontario. They’ve been able to curate this success by concentrating on the Niagara region, where they’ve successfully established themselves as the community’s largest home developer. In becoming one of the most prominent builders in the area, they’ve also established themselves as one of the most recognizable names in the area, even being referred to as the Citizen of Niagara.
Their story started over 30 years ago when Nick Basciano joined forces with his two brothers in law, Lou Memme and Frank Memme, to begin their own home building company in 1979.By the 1980’s, they had already established themselves as the largest home builder in the Niagara region. They were able to do this by creating gorgeous master-planned communities that had a distinct sense of space.Their story started to change in 1994 when the families’ next generations started taking more prominent roles within the organization. Mark Basciano, Michelle Basciano, and Mike Memme all got more involved in the company, and Mark took over as president when his father, Nick, tragically succumbed to cancer in 2001.Mark has excelled as the company’s leader, filing various important roles in the Southern Ontario real estate industry. He sat on the Board of Directors for organizations like Meridian Credit Union, Tarion Warranty Group, and the Niagara Home Builders Association. He was a crucial member of the the Ontario Home Builders’ Association too, even sitting in as President in 2007-2008.Their specialty is master-planned communities. Unlike many home builders in the GTA, Mountainview chooses to focus on building communities that are made up of townhomes and single family homes. This allows them to put special care into each one of their homes, and this can be seen with their fixtures and quality craftsmanship.
