About Us

Lead. Restore. Build. Hoffman United is dedicated to assisting Erie to become a thriving epicenter by strategically and ethically procuring blighted properties, increasing market-rate housing, and pursuing economic development opportunities through our commercial and residential Construction and Rentals, as well as unique investment opportunities. We promise to always provide superior quality and excellent customer service. 

It is our mission to build strong communities that will last for generations and bring beauty back to buildings that have deteriorated over time. We know this means that our ambitions must include the aspirations and needs of all people in the community. 

Using the Golden Rule as our guide, we set the bar for quality leadership. We create high standards for ourselves and strive for small improvements every day because we want a legacy the Erie region can be proud of. We believe in our city, and if we work together, we will make a huge impact: one home, one block, and one street at a time.

We know the importance of teamwork. Steadfast in our community leadership positions, we’re committed to redeveloping areas that will make long-lasting economic impacts via innovation, ambition, and room for diversity. We want to see cities and our customers thrive, which is why we’ll continue to provide, produce, and manage properties of lasting value.
