PROUD OF OUR PAST.
EXCITED ABOUT OUR FUTURE.
40 years of success in the development industry speaks volumes, and Embrey is extremely proud to recognize the dedication, creativity and excellence infused into every project. In 1974, Walter Embrey, Jr. started a journey built on moral integrity and creative vision. And 40 years later the entire Embrey team still operates with those core values.
WHAT DOES OUR 40 YEARS OF SUCCESS MEAN FOR YOU?
WE’VE STAYED IN TUNE WITH THE INDUSTRY. SO YOU WILL, TOO
As industry trends evolved, so did Embrey. Staying on top of current market directions, construction practices, and management systems has ensured the viability of our developments.
SMART INVOLVEMENT MEANS SMART BUSINESS
One of the key reasons for our longevity is knowing when—and in what capacity—to get involved in a project. We’re big on analyzing opportunities to predict how our involvement could best benefit the project, investors, the end buyer and our company.
WE’VE WEATHERED THE STORMS
Because of these traits, we’ve made it through some of the toughest times in real estate history. Working smart. Creative vision. Utmost integrity. These have remained steadfast and carried us through the tough times.
Historically, we don’t just think about tomorrow. We are always thinking about next year. And the next 20. We learn from our past, yes, but are constantly questioning and pushing ourselves. This is when new trends and successful projects emerge.
