Homebuilder Thrives Despite Economy

Share Article

Diversification brings success to one Harrisburg, PA property management firm, Triple Crown Corporation.

We truly believe that we can double our Central PA market share within the next three years and carefully expand into new markets.

Few industries have felt the effects of the sub-prime mortgage crisis more than real estate companies. After enjoying record-setting growth for decades, many American homebuilders are re-evaluating their position within the market. One Harrisburg homebuilder, however, has found the formula for success.

Triple Crown Corporation has diversified their holdings to become a major player in every aspect of the housing industry. In addition to constructing new homes and commercial properties, the company owns and manages nearly one thousand rental apartments, town homes, mobile homes and rental communities as well as over 1.6 million square feet of retail, warehouse and commercial space in Central Pennsylvania.    

Triple Crown's diversification has proven an effective way to continue growth in the current economic environment. They have grown from a four-person operation in 1977 to a seventy-nine person company with three offices across the Central PA region today. Over the next three years the company plans to leverage their success with market expansion to include Maryland, Delaware and Florida.

When asked about the company's future, CEO Mark DiSanto commented, "We truly believe that we can double our Central PA market share within the next three years and carefully expand into new markets."

Unlike other real estate companies focusing on one aspect of the housing industry, Triple Crown's success is attributed to its three pronged approach of developing, building and managing all types of real estate. Their rental communities currently average 97% occupancy.

Triple Crown's commitment to customer service, superior homes and their employees has been recently recognized. At the Harrisburg Home Builders Association/Sales & Marketing Council's Pyramid Awards on May 9th at the Radisson Penn Harris Hotel in Harrisburg, the company received 18 awards, including:

Headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Triple Crown Corporation has three decades of experience offering professional real estate services such as building, development and property management. For more information about the company or its services, please visit their website.
