Our Philosophy

New Urban Communities was founded 17 years ago by Kevin Rickard and Tim Hernandez based on a few simple principles:

  • Most people prefer spending time with family and friends to fighting traffic.
  • Most people prefer small communities to large subdivisions.
  • Most people appreciate good design.
  • Most people prefer to live close to employment, entertainment, shopping, and cultural and recreational destinations.

Our homes are:

  • High quality—built with the same construction techniques and many of the same features found in much more expensive homes.
  • Built in small, lushly landscaped communities close to where people work and play.
  • Priced fairly.
  • Green! (See how we’ve been building green for years!)

Visit one of our communities and see how we are changing the way people live, one home at a time.
