Stafford Homes’ history stretches all the way back to 1945, when Samuel Goldman and his son Murray built their first custom home. Together, they founded a company that would go on to become one of Canada’s most prolific and innovative developers. The elder Goldman was a bricklayer by trade, and his eye for impeccable craftsmanship has been passed down through generations. Stafford has developed a reputation for high standards of design, as well as contributing to the revitalization of urban districts throughout the GTA.
Now run by the father and son team of CEO Gary Goldman and company president Jonathan Goldman, Stafford Homes aims to provide buyers with both homes and communities they will be proud to call home. The company maintains working relationships with top architects and interior designers, and ensures that interior and exterior designs seamlessly blend functionality, sustainability and visual appeal. In order to maximize livability, Stafford chooses sites in thriving, amenity-rich neighborhoods. In addition, it also makes public realm improvements (such as increased pedestrian-friendliness) standard on all of its developments. Finally, the Goldman family firmly believes in the power of giving back to the communities of which it is a part, and Jonathan Goldman is currently involved with over a dozen local charitable organizations.
