When Pasquale Marrano and his brothers founded Marrano Corporation in 1956, it was the realization of the American dream. Hard work and a commitment to excellence quickly established the company as the premier new home builder in Western New York.
Six decades later, Marrano continues to be a family-oriented business and its name proudly remains synonymous with high quality, innovation and unparalleled new home construction. Their first major subdivision, Hillview Acres in Lancaster was completed in 1959 with 175 homes. Today, thousands of Marrano single-family, patio, and town homes dot the landscape across all Western New York communities, including Amherst, Clarence, Cheektowaga, Elma, Hamburg, Lancaster, Orchard Park, West Seneca and Williamsville.
“We value our heritage,” said Patrick A. Marrano, Pasquale’s son and president of Marrano/Marc Equity Corporation. “Over the course of time, we have developed and grown the business to reflect the high standards and strong work ethic of our founders. By maintaining a business filled with creative, dedicated new home professionals, who work tirelessly to provide our customers with everything they want and need in a new home, we’re honoring the vision that first established this company.”
Patrick took the helm as president in the 1970s and set the organization on a course of growth and diversification. Under his direction, Marrano Homes pioneered the patio home concept in the area, refining and enhancing the maintenance-free lifestyle that continues to increase in popularity. While always maintaining deep roots in his hometown, he successfully expanded the company’s presence into the luxury housing market in West Palm Beach, Fla., and Boston, Mass.
John Manns, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing, highlighted just a few of the exciting things coming on in 2016, “Marrano is offering a 60th Anniversary Incentive Package as a thank you to the residents of Western New York for supporting us over all these years. This unprecedented incentive is available for all single-family communities and will offer a choice of many of today’s most popular features at no extra charge.
“Examples of the outstanding buying power of this incentive include selections such as a fourth bedroom or additional square footage in a location of your choice, paver rear yard patio, front or rear yard sprinkler system, upgraded hardwood or ceramic tile flooring – saving thousands and thousands of dollars,” explained Manns. “The 60th Anniversary Incentive Package is available for a limited time. Visit any Marrano single-family model center in Amherst, Lancaster, West Seneca, or Hamburg for details.”
“Marrano is also excited to announce that we’re planning a 2016 Home Show in our Evergreen Landing community located in Amherst,” Manns continued. This neighborhood is conveniently located off Tonawanda Creek Road, just east of Niagara Falls Boulevard. A blend of ranch and two-story home designs are currently under construction and will be ready for viewing during the Home Show scheduled for May and June. With a varied product line offering innovative features and the latest trends, Evergreen Landing is poised to meet the demands of home buyers from Amherst, Tonawanda and Wheatfield.”
Today, Marrano ranks among the Top 300 home builders in the country, one of Western New York’s Top 20 Private Companies, and benefits from prominent leadership. Patrick Marrano was honored in 2015 by Buffalo 612′ as one of the best Western New York C-Level Executives for his ability to navigate obstacles, provide vision to his company, and lead the way to continued success. “It is a privilege to live and work in this City of Good Neighbors. I’m excited to see the revitalization of the City of Buffalo and surrounding areas and am proud to give back by supporting local organizations like Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra as well as others,” Marrano said.
“Our commitment to Western New York is stronger than ever,” Marrano continued. “It’s been an amazing 60 years building neighborhoods for the residents of the area, and we look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.”
