Build Your South Bay Dream Home

Members of our team have built homes since the eighties. Rob started Villa d’Arte Development in 2000, and developed a number of high end beach homes in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach, each of which established new high marks for sales in their respective areas thanks largely to his skills developed at Cornell University’s school of architecture.  In 2013, First Light Development was formed with a group of dedicated partners and obtained a general contractors license in 2014.  Our paradigm of helping people through the process of building their custom homes with complete transparency of costs, using a “critical path” method of project management, results in cost savings and time efficiency that smooths out the edges of an often rugged experience.
