Melia Homes Increases Its Focus on Multifamily and Land Acquisitions with Appointment of New President to Oversee Growth

IRVINE, CA - Melia Homes, an Orange County-based development and homebuilding company specializing in attached and detached for-sale and rental homes in Southern California, has announced the launch of a new corporate initiative focused on the acquisition of existing multifamily communities as well as land for development of rental communities in Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego counties and selective Inland Empire locations.

BJ Delzer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Melia Homes will spearhead the new initiative.

“As a homebuilder with a proven track record of success delivering more than 250 quality for-sale homes to the local community, we recognize the opportunity to bring our in-house skills to the thriving multifamily rental industry,” says Delzer. “In doing so, we expect rapid growth, and have appointed 30-year building veteran Tim McSunas as President to oversee the continued quality, craftsmanship and research-driven design of our for-sale homebuilding operations.”

McSunas, most recently Executive Vice President of Melia Homes, has held senior management positions with prominent homebuilders including John Laing Homes, Pardee Homes, Taylor Woodrow Homes, The Shopoff Group, and most recently, William Lyon Homes.

As President, he will oversee Melia’s day-to-day operations including land acquisition, planning and development, project management, sales and marketing, as well as human resources.

“Our firm is built on a foundation of integrity, intelligence, wisdom, work ethic and deep local experience,” says McSunas. “By maintaining these values, we will continue to deliver properties our buyers are proud to call home, while also offering a new generation of families the opportunity to enjoy life’s most cherished memories in rental homes that are developed and managed with the same devout attention to detail, quality and design.”

Melia Homes is seeking existing Southern California multifamily properties in the 20 to 60-unit range for acquisition. The firm is also seeking well-located land parcels that are entitled or can be entitled for multifamily development.

Melia Homes is a market-driven, vertically integrated development and homebuilding company specializing in for-sale and rental homes in Orange, Los Angeles and San Diego counties and selective Inland Empire locations.

For over a decade the firm has entitled, developed, constructed, sold and closed nearly 350 single-family detached and attached homes with an additional 391 units currently in pre-construction or under construction. Melia’s development and construction activities operate through DelCon, Inc., a licensed general contractor (License No. 936942). Sales are handled directly by Melia Homes, Inc. which is a licensed real estate broker (License No. 00963544). Melia Homes is an active member of NAHB, BIA and the USC Lusk Center.
