Sierra Building Group
Sierra Building Group is a real estate developer that crafts new and distinctive homes and has been working for over 25 years. Their focus is to create beautiful homes that provide something different compared to what you’re used to seeing in Southern Ontario. They understand that they’re not just creating homes, but communities, places where you’ll live your life and grow with your family. They aim to build in picturesque locations where their homes belong in and augment the surrounding scenery, and places where your neighbours aren’t just neighbours, but life long friends.
Founder Morris Kansun picked the name of his company very deliberately. We wanted a name that evoked a sense of the mountains in the West - an unparalleled natural scenery that takes your breath away every time you see the sunrise on the horizon.
Kansun wanted to elicit this response because he is an avid outdoorsman, being extremely comfortable on the water boating or skiing in the mountains. He aims to give something different to his client base as he builds homes with a decidedly West Coast vibe. He accomplishes this by implementing natural wood and exposed stone accents in his home.
Like any real estate company, location is very important to them. They look for places where there’s a demand for what they offer, but also places that are appealing to their staff. This means places that promote an active lifestyle, and also a little flair - something extra, because of this they are active in building in Southern Ontario’s Cottage Country. This is ideal for this developer as it takes advantage of the natural beauty. They focus on building homes that blend into the natural landscape. Their ability to blend classic and modern architecture in the luxury homes that they build have led them to carve out a special niche in the market.
Although they have found a special place in Southern Ontario where they are happy to contribute, they’re also active in the wide spectrum of the real estate industry. They have expanded into commercial and residential enterprises throughout the United States. They have developed commercial projects in Florida, North Carolina, and Texas, as well as residential projects in the Houston area. They’re also working to develop a project in the Florida Keys.
Always looking to expand, they opened a more specialized wing of their company in 2008 when they opened their Custom Home Division. This was initially meant for friends, family, and acquaintances, but in 2010 they realized its potential and began developing residential projects in Toronto and Cottage Country’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.
This wing has now spread into high-end infill townhomes, detached/semi-detached residences, and extensive restorations of historic homes and luxury chalets.
Morris himself lives in a home built in the 20’s that he renovated - showing his dedication to his company. This developer has proven that they can create modern luxury homes in ideal settings. Their approach to building West Coast style homes in Southern Ontario has allowed them to become an innovative and forward thinking leader in their industry. They are planning on expanding throughout the United States as evidenced by their project in the Florida Keys, so it’s reasonable to think that they will expand to other parts of Canada and the United States, even bringing the West Coast style to the actual West Coast. One thing’s for sure, their future is bright.
