Zappico says it sets itself apart in the industry when it comes to
homebuilding because it holds its clients' hands through the entire
process. "On our website we now have a customer login so our
clients can pick out their options from home and don't have to run
around to every vendor picking out materials," Brian Zappi says.
"As the technology generation grows, we will have more features
online and improve our site to make it user-friendly and expedite
In addition to its website, Zappico has a showroom in its headquarters where all options are featured for its clients. "Most people
start online and inevitably come in so they can touch, feel and see
the product," he adds. "We want to make it easy for them."
Moving forward, Brian and Brandon Zappi are preparing to take
the reins of Zappico and are focusing on diversifying the business.
Although subdivision development and custom homes will always

mental disturbance and less lawn to maintain," Brandon Zappi says.
"People are looking for better finishes inside, outside decks and
more livable space rather than sprawling space."
The community's homeowner's association preserves the green
space from disturbance or future construction. Although every
home is custom, Zappico's design team has coordinated interior
and exterior color palettes to ensure the community maintains a
visual balance and harmony.
Homes range in size from 2,400 to 4,500 square feet and include four to five bedrooms with a first-floor master bedroom
option. The master bath includes a whirlpool tub and tumbled
marble flooring. Hardwood floors span throughout the home,
except for the powder room and hall bath, which feature ceramic tile. Granite countertops are in the kitchen, and maintenance-free windows that tilt in for easy cleaning are included
throughout the home.
Point Place is attracting young families because of the attractive
school district and easy commute to the city. A model home has
been completed, as well as a custom home across the street. Zappico broke ground on a third home in the beginning of May and
anticipates it will be a little more than a year until all lots are sold.
"We pre-sell everything before we build," Zappi says.
