The Windsor Companies

The Windsor Companies are a locally owned family of real estate development and construction firms based in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina. Founded in 2001 by David Howard and Tom Hall, Windsor was a marriage of seasoned resumes from the commercial and residential building and development industries. Howard was the former VP of Construction & Land Development for The Koury Company, and the leading impetus behind the formation of The Windsor Companies. It was Howard’s experience during his previous 13-year career for the entrepreneurial Joe Koury, a well-known local developer, that kindled his desire to form his own company. Hall was the successful Area President for several production home builders with experience in sales & marketing, operations and land acquisition. Howard and Hall together felt they had the knowledge, networks and resources to forge successful companies that could cater to both the commercial and residential industries.

It was in 2003 that Windsor hired ProjEx, a company owned and operated by Buddy Seymour, to consult on several commercial construction and development projects. Seymour had worked for Duke Energy as an Economic Developer and opened and managed the Greensboro office for A. Watts Construction all prior to starting ProjEx. The relationship between Howard, Hall and Seymour quickly evolved into a natural partnership, so with plans to develop and manage Windsor’s commercial construction company, Seymour joined The Windsor Companies as a partner. Windsor Contracting, LLC (DBA Windsor Commercial) was born.

Through the last 15 years Windsor has proven itself a pioneer in development and construction, and has grown into a parent company of Windsor Homes (’01), Windsor Commercial (’03) and Windsor Development Group (’05).


Windsor Homes, the first of the Windsor Companies, is a residential, development and construction company building a variety of housing types across the Triad. Windsor Homes prices range currently from the mid 100’s – mid 400’s. Website Link >>
