Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in Humabuilt. My name is Michael Foley, and I am the Founder and CEO of Humabuilt, a privately held company located in Apex, North Carolina. My journey into real estate began in 1995 with the purchase of a four-unit apartment building in Long Beach, California. My development career began in 1999 with the construction of five single-family homes in the Wrigley area of Long Beach. By 2004, we had transitioned to constructing luxury homes in West Los Angeles and small subdivisions in the Inland Empire. Since then, we have expanded from the California region to a national level and are now developing homes in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Prior to going out on my own, I worked as a consultant for a number of city government agencies assisting with a variety of redevelopment, economic development, and affordable housing projects. I am a strong proponent of green building and work to incorporate those ideas and materials into every project we do. I am very excited about the potential for 3D printed houses in the near future.
It is a joy to be able to reshape each community and create opportunities for those less fortunate. As such, we have also partnered with Charaplast, a nonprofit organization that assists in building homes for poverty stricken families in Vietnam. This philanthropic opportunity aligns with my philosophy that we should help our fellow mankind when possible and try to create a better world for all to live. We have made a resolution to donate one house for a family in Vietnam for every house we build and sell in the US. Please read our “Charity” page under the “News & Media” menu on our site to witness our philanthropic developments with Charaplast.
