In 1998, I began working on my first EPCON development. As a former employee of Epcon, and the son of its founder, Phil Fankhauser, I learned first-hand the importance of developing a first-class product, implementing great service to every customer and creating an alliance with dedicated employees.

In 2001, I moved my Ohio franchise to Charlotte, North Carolina upon the completion of my first project., Timbers Edge. Inspired by the success of my first franchise community I began a 62-unit project, Trellis Pointe Condominiums. Since then, I have developed The Polo Club of Matthews, a 64-unit project, Stonecrest Villas of Tega Cay, an 86-unit project, The Courtyards at Ardrey Place, a 17-unit project, The Polo Club at Mountain Island Lake, a 98-unit project and The Village at India Hook, a 58-unit project. Current projects include Augusta Place at Laurel Creek, a 113-unit unit project, The Courtyards at Harrisburg, a 45-unit project, The Villas at Carriage Hills, a 73-unit project and ClubRidge at Woodcreek Farms, a 60-unit project.

I am a graduate of Wake Forest University where I was a member of the men's golf team. I am happily married to Nicole, my wife of 17 years and a crucial collaborator in the business.


In 2005, I began my career in real estate with a focus in general brokerage. During this time, I discovered a specialized interest in land assemblage and its niche in the marketplace. In 2006, I joined Valley Development, a single-family residential development company the greater-Charlotte area where I assisted in all aspects of the company including site selection, due diligence, land assemblage, entitlements, engineering and development. During that time I worked closely with many of the area’s largest home builders.

At NewStyle Communities, my focus is to locate the best possible sites for our active-adult communities. Whether the property is 5 acres or 25 acres, my goal is to create a community which blends into the existing neighborhood, preserves maximum natural beauty and provides the conveniences today's active adults desire most.

I am a graduate of Nazareth College in Rochester, NY and was a member of the men's varsity soccer team. I am the proud father of twins, Joey and Lyla, who inspire and motivate me every day. I am the son of August and Joan Fiorenza and have one brother, Matt. I enjoy fitness, including Yoga, and spending time with my ever-growing children.
