Founded in 2010 as a vehicle to monetize more than 500 residential lots purchased from distressed sellers following the 2007 financial crisis, the Meritus team brought decades of combined homebuilding expertise to Janko Group from major homebuilders. Today, Meritus continues to be grounded in the efficient and proven practices of a large-scale builder, while also embracing the hands-on, personalized approach of a local, private company. The result is a unique and enjoyable homebuilding experience, in which we take the utmost pride in not only the skill and knowledge of our team and our disciplined business model, but also the relationships we create with our clients, our trade partners and the communities where we build.
