Our Story

Our History

In 2000, Tony Siesto began his lifelong passion of building custom homes. What started out as building 2 homes on Old Orchard Grove in the Avenue Road and Lawrence area, grew into building hundreds of homes in the GTA. In 2012, Franca Siesto joined the Old Orchard team bringing her Real Estate and Interior Design knowledge to the business. Leveraging their experience in construction, design and real estate, they established Old Orchard Properties in 2014 and have developed an estimated half billion dollars in properties. Specializing in Construction Management, Property Development, Property Management and Real Estate Services, Franca and Tony’s expertise can be endorsed by many of their clients.

Our mission is to build the homes that our customers really want; homes that are built with quality materials and crafted by experienced, and knowledgeable individuals dedicated to complementing your lifestyle needs and budgets.

As a builder of high-quality custom homes, we create value through our unique culture of continuous quality improvement, best practices, and adherence to stringent standards, efficiencies and timelines. We measure our performance through customer satisfaction, cost control, quality, and meeting schedules on time.

We work as a team with unified goals and an understanding of what it takes to be successful within our industry. Honesty, integrity, quality, transparency, teamwork, customer service and innovation are the cornerstones of our philosophy.
