Maleno welcomes you home. Offering beautiful living spaces and serving satisfied customers is the cornerstone of our business. We have been a family-owned business for over 40 years, becoming known as a respected leader in the Erie home business­­ including custom home building, real estate services, and property management.

Our promise is to consistently provide premium homes, expert knowledge and advice, exceptional and caring service to our customers and employees, and to make a difference within the Erie community.

Let us be your expert.


Once we decided to sell our home of 29 years and move to a patio home, it was not a hard decision to build a new home with Maleno. We researched many other subdivisions and constructions in the Erie area. When we visited the model home and met Sarah, we fell in love with the design of the Holly 3. On our first visit my wife 'moved in'. At this point, we knew we found the right builder to construct our new home. The professionalism and knowledge of the business was apparent in our first meeting with Natalie. Anytime there was a question or concern during the building process, Dominic immediately addressed them, which solidified why we chose Maleno's to build our home. Building a home can be very stressful, but our experience was stress-free. This location fits our personal needs. We love the closeness to friends, work, eateries, theater, and shopping areas. The neighborhood is quiet, yet the neighbors are friendly and willing to help whenever needed.
