EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS

The Glen at Blackstone Creek was initially envisioned as a large mixed use development, consisting primarily of residential condominiums, an existing golf course and boutique retail. The project was stalled by the great recession in 2009 and was sold to a new investor group which worked with VJS to reposition the project to better reflect the new market conditions following the great recession. VJS led the entitlement process to convert and sell a significant portion of the sites for 74 single family home sites along with 62 residential condominiums. Once repositioned, the entire project sold out in less than three years.

David Jorgensen

President

Appointed Executive Vice President for VJS Construction Services in 1999, he also serves as President of VJS Development Group. David has been instrumental in developing strategies for greater market share, improving relationships with employees, subcontractors and clients, and greatly enhancing the company’s client services. David’s background in business as well as experience working in the field allows him to recognize how clients think and to better understand their wants and needs.

Perhaps David’s most significant achievement during his time at VJS was establishing VJS Development Group, LLC in 2004. David formed VJS Development Group to better serve clients who required more than just basic construction services. What distinguishes the VJS Development Group from its competitors is the ability to provide real estate and construction services in tandem. David is familiar with all aspects of construction, including conceptual cost estimating, scheduling, and project management; he has parlayed this knowledge into the development of successful projects. The strategic alliance with VJS Construction Services enables David and the VJS Development Group to provide construction and real estate expertise that translates into flexibility and a refusal to use a “cookie cutter” approach to developing projects.
