ABOUT

“WHERE WE CHOOSE TO LIVE TELLS THE WORLD WHO WE ARE.”

THIS IS BLACKPINE

Every one of us has our own reasons for why we live where we do. We have many reasons, each very specific. Because the place where we live really demonstrates what we think is important in life.

We ourselves choose to live and to build in Sacramento.

Here, we create and restore real neighborhoods. From the time we choose a community, to the day we finish building, we think about how your home’s design and floorplan, its vicinity and its amenities, will best serve your lifestyle, not impose one upon you.

That’s the difference between just building a house and building you a home that’s truly yours.
