City Homes

The foundation for City Homes was laid in 2009 when a group of contractors, designers and business developers came together to build a quality home that people could trust. Todd Allen, Erich Hastreiter, Chris Malooly, Dave Remick, Rebecca Remick and Katie Stenger started their homebuilding in Bryn Mawr at an affordable price point. Since that time, the firm’s reach has only expanded to include entire cul-de-sacs and builds that spread into the western Twin Cities suburbs, particularly Edina.

“We feel blessed to think of how far we’ve come in this short amount of time,” says co-owner Malooly. Indeed, City Homes has appeared on the Artisan Home Tour, the Luxury Home Tour and the Parade of Homes, holding its own against luxury builders who have spent a lifetime in the industry.

The secret to success, co-owner Rebecca Remick explains, is bringing on the right people and not being afraid to go for it. “I love challenges,” she says.

And while City Homes loves a good trend, the team is also willing to embrace the unconventional — think a refreshing garden-green or graphic black-enamel kitchen instead of today’s standard white marble — with an eye for solid construction and beautiful materials that often draw raves. “People are excited to see what we’ll do next,” says Rebecca. “I see this going big.”
