About Us :: JK Development Corp.

Building a home is about respecting the emotional and financial significance of the home buyer´s experience of going through the building process.
This philosophy was instilled in Jon Shafran while working on large development projects as a Project Manager under the guidance of two of Hudson Valley´s most respected homebuilders - Rubin Shafran, his father, and Robert Hankin. Jon created JK Development Corp. in 1990 and has carried on these ideas in his own companies' successful ventures.
