Joe Duffus, CEO, Builders Design


Joe is a visionary in the interior design industry. For over 30 years, he has been marketing model homes and commercial spaces, and is responsible for billions of dollars in new home sales over the course of 15,000 successful design projects. His progressive approach to selling homes faster comes from his innate entrepreneurial spirit. 

Unlike most CEOs in our industry, Joe places as much emphasis on marketing a space as he does on the design of a space. He has honed a science that enables homebuilders to increase absorption rates and maximize options sales, and for multifamily developers, increase occupancy rates while maximizing their square footage lease rates.

Joe has created strategic partnerships with top industry leaders and research firms to offer the most comprehensive and effective design and merchandising tools in the industry. His Visions and High Impact Home editions include an in-depth look into generational divides, 55 plus, millennials, multi-family, and student housing. Joe continues to be in demand as a new home trends educator, judge, and speaker for multiple local and national homebuilder associations, including ABC, SEBC, and International Builders Show.
