Meet Our President

Jon Elliott, president and founder of The ONE Group, came to the construction business quite naturally. His father, Louis J. Elliott, founded a construction company half a century ago, with the same high ideals — quality, style and integrity — that he taught his family. Passing on his knowledge and wisdom, the elder Mr. Elliott was Jon’s mentor and the inspiration for him to continue building fine custom homes.

Jon Elliott has been in the business for 30 years. His philosophy is based on the belief that a home should be designed around the family that will inhabit it. He is an amazing designer, personally drawing every home specifically for each client and tailoring it to his or her family’s life. Mr. Elliott is passionate about building good homes for good people. “My reward isn’t about making a profit,” he says. “It’s about seeing and hearing my clients’ satisfaction and happiness on the day they move into their new home.”
