The mission of Garcia Development, LLC is to create and sell quality housing to excited home owners. We want these homeowners to be proud of their new home. The word "home" means more to us than it does to an average contractor. We treat every housing project as if we were building a home for our families. By doing so, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. At Garcia Development, LLC, we not only restore homes, we restore communities.
