The experience and accessibility of Regency
Builders' partners give it an edge in the western New York housing market. BY JIM HARRIS
Regency Builders prides itself on being accessible to
its customers. "With a lot of other companies, it can be difficult to get to the owner, but with us there's always an owner you can reach; we manage the company hands-on," says
Kevin Myszka, who owns the company along with partners
Elliot Lasky and Bob Mayo. "I believe we have the highest
rate of customer satisfaction in our region."
The Amherst, N.Y.-based custom homebuilder's owners work with a regular stable of contractors and designers
while remaining personally in touch with customers. "Everything we do is highly customized to the unique tastes
and requirements of our clients," Myszka says. "We use the
same subs for each job, because they know what we and our
clients are looking for. I'm proud of the talent pool we have
to work with."
The company builds several homes a year in western New
York. Its average home price is $500,000. "We offer a highend product at an affordable price," he adds. "We use the best
possible finishes and try to use materials that other companies would consider extras as our standard."
Standard materials and finishes in Regency homes include
engineered floor joints, Pella windows, metal or wooden
staircases, custom doors and molding. "When people come
into our models, they can tell the house is well-built as soon
as they walk in," Myszka says.
Many of Regency's clients request open floor plans including two-story-high great rooms with high ceilings. All of
its homes include basements, many of which are accessible
from garages through separate entrances from the rest of the
home. Outdoor features including custom patios and grill
areas, and fire pits are also common.
The three partners represent three of Regency's five fulltime employees. Each of the partners specializes in an aspect
of the company's management in addition to overseeing its
entire operation. Lasky oversees land acquisition, financing
and legal/contractual matters; Myszka is responsible for
