About Us

Robert A. (Bob) Lawson started The Lawson Companies in 1972, but our roots trace back to a company started by Bob's father-in-law in 1946, Bush Realty. In more than thirty years at the helm, Bob Lawson built a reputation of integrity and excellence through the construction of thousands of housing units and millions of dollars of development. With the expert leadership and thoughtful guidance of Mr. Lawson, the Company has become a diverse group of wholly owned subsidiaries with expertise in a wide range of real estate disciplines from affordable housing development to luxury single-family construction. In 1999, Bob's son, Steve, was appointed President of The Lawson Companies and has followed in his father's footsteps. In his ten years as President, Steve has almost doubled the size of the apartment portfolio and has overseen more than $100 million of construction and development in both single- and multi-family markets.
