Watt Communities has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of Southern California’s premier home builders. Of course, any mention of Watt Communities must start with its rich history and the name of its founder, Ray Watt.
Today, under the guidance of Ray’s son Scott Watt (Chairman) and Howard Press (President), the tradition thrives, built upon more than 100,000 homes and apartments, 8 million square feet of office and industrial space, 50 shopping centers and 3 major hotels.
Watt Communities is highly regarded by the home buying public as premium quality builder. The company has established relationships with city officials, community leaders, financial institutions, and brokerage communities for its expertise in land acquisition, entitlements, development, homebuilding operation and financial management.
Led by sound, prudent, management philosophies and an exceptional team of leaders that have guided the companies through every economic circumstance, Watt is a business built on reputation and relationships. With such solid foundations, it becomes very clear why Watt holds a commanding position of leadership in the new-home market place.
Originally conceived as a Los Angeles-based, infill homebuilding company, Watt Communities has grown into a regional development company through its Watt Communities brand in Northern and Southern California, Arizona through a joint venture with New Leaf Communities and its Palisades Development arm in the Washington D.C. area.
