History

Our founder, Fred Delibero began his career as a commercial real estate professional in 1992 holding senior commercial leasing and development positions with The Mills Corporation, and Copaken, White & Blitt.
In 2002, Fred started Summit Custom Homes, a semi-custom home building and land development company in Kansas City. Under his direction, Summit grew to become the largest home builder in the Kansas City Market. In 2015, Builder Magazine ranked Summit the 129th largest builder in the nation.
Following the sale of Summit late 2016 to Clayton Properties Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Fred formed Griffin Riley Property Group, LLC, with the intent of investing in and developing value-add commercial and residential properties. Since its inception, the company has completed acquisitions and new projects in the Kansas City metro area including the development, purchase, leasing, repositioning, and management of neighborhood retail centers, office, warehouse, and residential for rent properties.
