Dwight co-founded HighCraft Builders with Bryan Soth in 1998. His unwavering commitment to problem-solving and client satisfaction is leadership by example, and sets the tone for HighCraft’s culture and daily operations.
Dwight is a Certified Green Professional who has been building and remodeling homes for 30 years. His passion for construction ignited when he was given the opportunity to rebuild neighborhoods devastated by the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989. That experience also taught Dwight the importance of working with structural engineers and architects to ensure every project starts with a strong foundation.
Dwight applies that same strong-foundation philosophy to his business relationships. As a co-founder of HighCraft Builders, Dwight’s heart and soul is in this company because his life’s work is to make people happy. Twenty years after launching HighCraft, Dwight enjoys a more behind-the-scenes leadership role as the keeper and champion of HighCraft’s founding values. “When we say we take care of clients for a lifetime, we mean it,” Dwight says. “That means we have to be a company that is around for a lifetime.” And the secret to HighCraft’s business longevity, he adds, is building meaningful relationships with employees and clients, and delivering quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service for every project.
“At HighCraft it’s ALL about the client. We’re in the business of taking care of people, establishing trust and building relationships.” – Dwight
LIKES: Family road trip adventures, California wine and beaches, old cowboy trail songs, and traveling the West.
DISLIKES: Traffic, strip malls, and being in a room while someone’s vacuuming.
More than meets the eye:
Dwight loves heading down the highway, either pulling a horse trailer for his kids or enjoying a cross-country road trip with the entire family. He’s a California surfer with the heart of a Colorado cowboy, just as comfortable in a 4H livestock barn as he is spending time in the ocean on a surfboard. Read more about Dwight’s story HERE.
“We interviewed a few builders, but HighCraft seemed to have their act together the most. HighCraft wasn’t too big, not too small, just the right size – we felt comfortable with them. The project was relatively complicated, and they handled it really, really well … Dwight was very nice to work with, too. He went to bat for us with the subs to make an issue right. There was never any question; he just went to bat for us. That’s worth a lot right there.” – Jane and Franco
