Since Bob Lawson founded The Lawson Companies in 1972, our mission has remained the same: to positively impact the communities we serve. In his more than 30 years at the helm, Mr. Lawson built – along with thousands of housing units and millions’ worth of development – an impeccable reputation for integrity and excellence. The company’s expertise has grown to include everything from affordable housing development to single-family construction. In 1999, Bob’s son Steve was appointed president of The Lawson Companies. Under his leadership, the company has more than doubled its apartment portfolio and closed more than $335 million in construction and development transactions in both multifamily and single-family markets.
