SARASOTA COUNTY, FL – In early March, GulfStar Homes, a home builder known for building high-quality, affordable houses in North Port, celebrated the grand opening of its new headquarters. The company has moved from its previous office on Tamiami Trail to its new location at 2584 Commerce Parkway, North Port.
Since 2014, GulfStar Homes has worked to give home buyers everything they want in a home for one low value price. The company has built and sold almost 300 homes in North Port, for affordable prices between $159,900 and $239,900.
While one might expect a home builder achieving such a level of demand and success to expand its footprint, GulfStar CEO Deb Kabinoff says that is not the company’s goal.
“We build only in North Port,” she said. “We’re committed to helping create a vibrant, affordable community here.”
With GulfStar now averaging sales of about two homes each week, the company simply outgrew its previous headquarters.
“We have grown to a point where we wanted a space designed specifically for our needs,” Kabinoff said. “With our new office, we can optimize our operations as well as optimize the value of the homes we provide to our customers.”
GulfStar Homes was founded by Sarasota residents Kabinoff and her late husband, Larry Kabinoff, who identified the opportunity to create a successful business and contribute to the development of a flourishing community in North Port. The Kabinoffs have been described as “serial entrepreneurs”; each built and sold multi-million dollar companies over the course of their professional careers.
Unlike most home builders that offer a base house and then charge customers for the features they really want and need, GulfStar Homes includes all of those upgrades in one low advertised price. Homes are built with energy efficiency, safety, comfort and beauty in mind, with features such as impact windows and doors, peel and stick underlayment on the roofs, gutters and downspouts around the entire house, porcelain tile and granite throughout, energy efficient stainless steel appliances, attractive landscaping, and more. They also offer peace of mind with a 10-year bonded builders’ warranty.
As one of the many very satisfied customers said, “We would recommend GulfStar Homes to anyone who is looking to build a new home. The value of the home beat anyone in the area and with a beautiful design … This is, for sure, a forever home.”
“Our homes are an exceptional value,” affirmed Kabinoff. “Our objective has always been to provide beautiful, functional, quality-built homes of exceptional value for people to enjoy. We look forward to continuing to work to achieve that goal from our new home office.”
