Modern Home Builder - Winter 2016 - Volume 2 - 52
Regency Builders LLC
Regency Builders works closely with homeowners throughout the building process "from the
point of sale to the final walk-through," Partner Bob Mayo says.
Lasky, Myszka and Mayo founded the company in 2009. Lasky
has more than 35 years of homebuilding experience, including
as owner of Forbes Homes, a company he founded in 1980 and
sold in 2005. While with Forbes Homes, Lasky built more than
2,500 custom homes in western New York and developed dozens
of subdivisions in Erie and Niagara counties. In addition to custom
homebuilding, Lasky has built townhouses, apartment buildings,
commercial buildings and condominiums.
Mayo's experience includes being a contractor with his own
company and as a project manager at Forbes Homes. "He was
my top foreman, and built some of the most expensive homes I
ever worked on," Lasky says. Mayo has built more than 700 homes
during his more than 30-year career.
Myszka began his real estate career in Tampa, Fla., in 2004.
"He's out there pounding the pavement for us to raise our name
recognition and build our client base," Lasky adds.
In addition to the three partners, Regency employs a bookkeeper and a field superintendent to assist Mayo. "We work together to
keep our jobsites extremely clean and well-organized, which we
get many compliments from our customers about," Mayo says.

sales and marketing; and Mayo handles operations and oversees
construction. "I work with the customer from the point of sale to
the final walk-through," Mayo says. "When the job is done, being
able to walk through the home with customers and see the smiles
on their faces is something I take great pride in."

The experience of Regency's partners helped it overcome the
challenge of establishing the company during the national housing
market downturn. "We had a smart business plan," Myszka says.
"We limited our expenses and overhead, and didn't build spec
homes; we started with one model home, just to give it a shot, and
have grown every year since."
Lasky's development experience and access to financing also
greatly aided the company. The company has lots available in communities including Lake Forest North in Amherst, N.Y.; Windsor
Ridge South in Lancaster, N.Y.; and Roxberry Estates in Clarence,
N.Y. It also builds on land owned by its clients.
"We have a diverse land inventory that we either own or have
accessible to us that most builders don't have the ability to secure,"
Lasky says. "We have a wealth of experience, and I think it shows in
our final product." )
