Celebrating 95 Years

Celebrating 95 Years

Rooted in the past. Built for the Future. The Warmington group celebrates 95 years in 2021.

With a strong foundation and deep roots, the Warmington family business is a source of great pride and optimism as it enters its 95th year. It is with immeasurable gratitude we share the news of this milestone.

It was 1926 when 37-year-old William C. Warmington received California State Contractors License No. 144 and established himself as a home builder. Fast-forward to 2021 and the Warmington group of companies is a thriving fourth-generation, full-service real estate organization.

Warmington companies have evolved from their fascinating roots building custom homes for many of California’s early 20th-century innovators, business people, and celebrities to building contemporary homes for 21st-century buyers as well as developing and managing multifamily apartment communities. By creating new pathways for continued success, Warmington has solidified its reputation for excellence and ensured its legacy for future generations.

Once celebrated as a custom “homebuilder to the stars” and collaborator to many renowned early 20th century architects, including Gerard Colcord, Wallace Neff and Paul Williams, Warmington companies transitioned to building modest homes as the population and need for housing boomed post WWII. By 1962, California was the country’s most populous state and Warmington-built homes were giving rise to new neighborhoods and eventually planned communities.

By the 1980s, Warmington was building and managing multifamily properties in addition to crafting traditional single-family homes in new suburbs and masterplanned communities throughout California, and beginning in 1996, Nevada. Subsequent decades meant navigating through periods of great highs (the housing bubble!) and immense lows (the great recession!), and the truly unexpected (a worldwide pandemic!) while staying the course and also adapting to meet the challenges of these times.

At present, the Warmington group of companies comprise a full-service real estate organization that maintains expertise in residential home building, community development, commercial and industrial development and renovation, acquisitions, and apartment and commercial property asset management.
