Home builder expanding into Coastal Empire

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) - Mungo Homes of South Carolina is expanding into the Coastal Empire. The builder met with business leaders at the Richmond Hill City Center Wednesday morning. They have already been working on sites in Richmond Hill like Live Oak.

The Chief Executive Officer says the first quarter of the year has been off to a slow start, but he's not worried.

"When things are tough like that, that's when companies like ourselves can differentiate ourselves. We're well capitalized; we've been in business since 1954; we're privately held; we don't have a bunch of stock holders we have to answer to, so we can always do the right thing," said Steven Mungo, CEO of Mungo Homes.

Mungo is building homes in Stonebridge in West Chatham County as well.
