Meet Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling, LLC

Joshua Leibowitz, Founder and Managing MemberAtlanta Area Building & Remodeling Headshot

I have been in the construction, maintenance, and management fields since joining Finkelstein Morgan Real Estate (an owner management company) in 1981, as Managing Agent of 12-14 of the approximately 45 New York apartment buildings owned by them. Prior to 1981 I worked for Finkelstein Morgan as a hardwood floor installer, painter, and roofer. As Managing Agent I was responsible for every aspect of building management including, but not limited to, inspecting, scheduling, and overseeing all aspects of maintenance and repairs, major capital improvements, construction, collections, legal, and dealing with city building departments with regard to correction of building violations etc. Over the years I was very involved with overseeing several gut rehabs, and “mod” rehabs (with the building still occupied). After 22 years it was time for a change.In 2003, with all the knowledge learned from my 22 years in the field, I started FM Development LLC. While still maintaining my affiliation with Finkelstien Morgan, I went on to do something I always wanted to do, build houses. In April 2009 I moved to Atlanta to remodel 30 homes as rental properties and fell in love with Atlanta’s warm ‘Southern Hospitality.’ Our recent name change to Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling, LLC better reflects what we are doing here. It’s the same company, just a new name. Contact me to set up your free consultation.

Beyond the Closing

Your home is probably the largest purchase you will ever make and your builder/remodeler is someone you need to be able to talk to and count on. You need a builder and/or contractor with a solid reputation. Our reputation was created and is upheld by the fact that our relationship doesn’t end when your project is done. As the Managing Member of Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling, I believe that I am an easy, honest person to deal with, and have ensured that all those that work with me are the same. I hope that you will agree. It would be my pleasure to be the builder/contractor/remodeler that you choose for your quality custom home, renovation, or addition . Bring your plans, use one of ours, or we can work on one together.
