Ziman Development’s Luxury Home Building Begins With ‘Customer Focus’Optimizing Prime Sites, Creating With Quality
Ziman Development is a family-owned business with more than 25 years of experience building beach houses. Its newly constructed office in Harvey Cedars exemplifies quality craftsmanship, and it provides a comfortable space where clients can meet with company operators to plan their own custom dream home.
The luxury home builder is recognized as a leader in the development of Long Beach Island’s most exclusive properties.
“We focus on the principles of quality over quantity. This has led to a portfolio of recent houses that are not only functional, but unique and prodigious,” said owner Michael Ziman, whose father, Gary, founded the business.
Ziman Development has put together an exceptional team of experts in the custom home design and building process. The design specialists consult with the customer; then the construction professionals carry through the vision.
The project is completed “never cutting corners and doing the job the right way,” outlines the company, which treats every house as if it were its own.
“The Ziman Difference,” the website summarizes, is “customer focus.”
“We listen to our customers and understand their wants, needs, and desires. When need be, we will help narrow down your focus to a clear and concise vision. This is paramount, and will determine how we proceed; as no two jobs, properties, and clients, are alike.
“Ziman Development specializes in the layout, design, and optimization of each specific site and location. Since no two properties are the same, our focus lies on creating custom and functional living spaces, while maximizing beach and water views.”
As developers, Ziman Development offers completed homes, has building lots available, and will assist in developing your own property.
“We work with various architects and can assist in choosing the right one for each specific job. We love getting involved early in the building process which always makes for a better home. Having the collective experience of multiple design professionals is always better than just one architect,” Ziman stated.
“If you already have your house designed, don’t worry. We would be happy to take a look and give you our thoughts and build it for you. No land? No problem! Ziman Development employs two licensed real estate agents, while also maintaining great relationships with the other top real estate brokers on the Island.”
Ziman Development is also in constant communication with owners of special, unique and hard-to-come-by properties. “When a property comes available, we let our specific client know, or we purchase it for ourselves.”
Beautiful ocean views or bay views are a requirement when seeking properties, said Jon Mann, who is vice president of acquisitions.
“There is a lot of property out there, but what I’m searching for is that spectacular piece of property.”
In the Harvey Cedars office, a large-screen TV displays a portfolio of recent work, which can also be seen on the website, zimandevelopment.com, along with current properties for sale.
Company owners can also take clients directly to the sites of projects so they can visualize aspects for themselves.
Said Ziman, “We probably have about 12-plus projects in some stage or another at any one point. We can take people to actually show them anything and everything. I had someone this morning who wanted an oceanfront, and right now we’re building four different oceanfronts at various jobs.
“The one they were planning is 35 feet wide, and I have one that’s 40 feet wide, 36 feet wide, 30 feet wide, so I could show them the differences. Also they were curious what the height was going to be over the replenished dune, so I could show them.”
The website’s testimonials page reflects praise from pleased homeowners.
“Our goal is to give you exactly what you want, and exceed all your expectations. This has led to hundreds of happy clients and a large referral business,” summarizes the website.
Wrote Tom and Melanie Elliot, “The architectural design and finishing touches create a resort-like feel, which is combined with our own personalized appeal. From the inside-out, our new home is solid and beautiful with exceptional care taken down to the smallest details by Ziman.”
Said other new homeowners, “Materials, design elements and workmanship are of the highest standard.” Yet another customer described the Ziman team as “effective communicators and creative problem-solvers.”
