Built to Last


Vision believes in building for the future.  Quality is reflected in materials that last and finishes that shine.  Subcontractors share the same focus on quality, from carpentry to plumbing and electrical.


Vision Properties has the competency and proficiency to ensure that property construction runs efficiently – on budget and on schedule.  Rick Shaffer personally directs the construction team on each project, motivating everyone to work at a craftsman level.  Anyone who has worked with Rick appreciates his eye for detail.


Eco-Friendly Practices


Vision was employing eco-friendly real estate development practices long before they were certified or promoted as being “green”.  First and foremost, the firm focuses on urban infill projects that create fewer burdens on transportation systems, and public utilities and services.  In addition, older buildings are often rehabilitated or repurposed to prevent demolition and toxic waste disposal, and limit natural resource consumption.


Specific construction strategies include the following:

  • Recycle building materials
  • Utilize natural and synthetic materials with low-carbon footprints
  • Install energy-efficient heating and cooling systems
  • Install energy-efficient windows that maximize light
  • Install energy-efficient kitchen appliances
  • Install plumbing fixtures that minimize water usage
  • Reduce and/or contain site-generated storm water runoff
