Herman Weaver started the first Weaver company, in 1939, at the age of twenty-five. It was then that he and his wife Edith founded the W. H. Weaver Construction Company in his hometown of Greensboro. During the early years, the company specialized in residential construction. Weaver Realty Company, a real estate management and mortgage banking firm, was started in 1946, and, in the early 1950’s, the Weaver Construction Company diversified into commercial and industrial construction. By the 1960’s the companies had grown and expanded with operations in six southeastern states.
The Weaver’s son, H. Michael Weaver, joined the family businesses in the fall of 1961 and later expanded the companies into real estate development, investment, brokerage, and syndication. The primary company now is the Weaver Investment Company, which directly invests in real estate and in a variety of business concerns and ventures. Weaver Investment Company also functions as a family office, managing the equity and fixed income portfolios for Weaver family members and providing a variety of support services.
Today, the scope of operations includes Park Center Management – a full service commercial property management company; KMW Builders – a general contracting company specializing in the construction of multi-family developments, affordable housing and commercial projects; and Stoney Creek Golf Course – one of North Carolina’s Top 100 premier semi-private golf courses.
