Greg Griffis

Founding Principal

Greg’s responsibilities within Merit Homes include overseeing land development and home construction, plan selection, design and purchasing. Greg’s life long passion is home building. He has a depth of knowledge about building products, codes and construction practices that is rarely seen today. Always striving to be ahead of the curve, he’s passionate about good design and better built homes.

Greg has been involved in residential construction for more than 40 years. He formed his first company in 1972 which developed a variety of residential and commercial projects throughout Western Washington.

The focus on in-fill residential development evolved from time spent as a custom home builder on Mercer Island and Seattle in the late 1970 and 80’s.  Greg further honed his craft working with site conditions that were often difficult, large and technically complicated homes, and highly-involved clients. His focus on Kirkland began in the late 80’s as Microsoft was growing rapidly and Kirkland was quickly becoming a sought-after residential address due to its quaint downtown waterfront setting, excellent schools and great location central to many Eastside and Seattle employment centers. Greg is a longtime resident of Kirkland.

Greg has a BA in Economics from the University of Washington and a subsequent BS in Building Construction.
