GroundStone Homes was founded in 2006 by Matthew Montgomery and Robert Brandon Jr. The team at GroundStone has a unique perspective when it comes to developing communities and building homes, and that is because its founding partners have a diverse range of experience that shines through in every project they develop and every new home they build.
Montgomery, a graduate of the M.E. Rinker, SR. School of Construction Management at The University of Florida College of Design, Construction and Planning, has worked with some of the largest residential and commercial builders in South Florida, where he learned how to combine the best of a large company with the extensive local knowledge and flexibility of a smaller, private builder. “We must stop building for the sake of building,” he says, “and look to existing structures and neighborhoods as to how we can reuse, redevelop and recycle what we currently have, and transform the existing into a better, more sustainable and desirable future for our neighborhoods and communities.”
This assertion stems from over 20 years of experience in sustainable construction and real estate development. Montgomery and Brandon know and understand that now is the time to make the right decisions for the future of the construction and development industries. Their mission is simple: promote and develop sustainable, eco-friendly spaces and neighborhoods, nurturing the ability to cultivate communities that flourish for generations.
Additionally, GroundStone Homes gives back to the community. GroundStone is proud to partner with the Palm Beach Habilitation Center in developing and constructing a new building to house the Seniors in Transition and Retirement Services (STARS). Additional work with the Center includes Amy’s House in Haverhill, which serves as a women’s group home, and a future memory care group home to be located in Wellington. The Center is a cornerstone of the South Florida community, providing services to adults with developmental, emotional and physical disabilities to help them achieve their greatest level of independence.
