Richmond American Homes Enters Oregon Market

“We first entered the Pacific Northwest through the acquisition of a Seattle homebuilder in 2011. The Portland Metropolitan area was a logical next step, especially given the economic strength we have observed in the local market,” said MDC’s President and COO, David Mandarich. “We are excited to introduce homebuyers in the area to our unique floor plans and personalized approach to homebuilding.”

Jim Riela, currently serving as Vice President of Construction for Richmond American Homes of Colorado, has been promoted to serve as President of Richmond American Homes of Oregon. Jim has over 20 years of residential construction experience, including more than 10 years in new home construction. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Hamilton College, a Master of Science degree in Architecture with a concentration in Real Estate Development from Columbia University and a Master of Science degree in Construction Management from the University of Washington.
