Interview with Mayer Dahan, CEO of Prime Five Homes, Dahan Properties, and founder of the Dream Builders Project

Prime Five Homes

When you are buying a home you want quality materials, sturdy infrastructure, and efficient functionality, as well as reliable and sustainable design. I realized how much Los Angeles is lacking this type of housing and decided to make it my mission to provide and educate people about the importance of building this way.

Can you tell us what’s special about your business?
Prime Five Homes is the most eco-friendly & sustainable real estate development firm in Los Angeles county. A leader in sustainable, luxury home design and construction, Prime Five Homes is known for its innovative vision, modern design, and eco-friendly building style.

Prime Five Homes understands the need for a home to not only look beautiful, but also have good energy and aura. Every Prime Five Homes project comes standard with a unique, indoor/outdoor, open floor plan that is the basis for a positive space. Our homes combine spacious rooms with large, natural textures, smart home technologies, and solar energy, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for an abundance of natural light and create a tranquil, comfortable, and efficient interior. Prime Five Homes’s signature indoor/outdoor floor plan also seamlessly connects the interior and exterior spaces of the home; a proven feature that positively impacts the home dwellers mentality and self-esteem.

A Prime Five Homes design incorporates the cleanliness and crispness of modern architecture with the use of quality materials, fixtures and fittings. But it is the intangible elements of a Prime Five Homes design that create a comfortable, efficient and affordable home for families.

What motivated you to start an eco-friendly business?
I first became interested in sustainable building practices and designing eco-friendly, modern homes when I started thinking about wanting a home of my own. When you are buying a home you want quality materials, sturdy infrastructure, and efficient functionality, as well as reliable and sustainable design. I realized how much Los Angeles is lacking this type of housing and decided to make it my mission to provide and educate people about the importance of building this way.

At Prime Five Homes, we pride ourselves on utilizing only sustainable construction, solar energy, eco-friendly, top quality materials, and smart home technologies. As the green building code becomes stricter and more apparent in the residential market, we strive to exceed these standards and make our houses even better and more beautiful.

What green issues are you most passionate about?
I am heavily involved in promoting environmental friendly practices in my own business as well as in the community. In the past few years, I have become involved in the Los Angeles River Revitalization Corporation and have done multiple projects to transform the Los Angeles River into a cultural, social and economic force for good.

To achieve eco-friendliness in my business, I try and save as many materials from demolition as possible that can be reused and recycled. All Prime Five Homes designs come standard with solar panels, custom water capture systems, drought-resistant landscaping, and use of recycled and eco-friendly building materials throughout the home.

What advice would you have for other aspiring social and green entrepreneurs?
You don’t need to know everything in order to get started, you just need a good idea, passion, and a whole lot of drive! And don’t be afraid to take risks. Just believe in yourself, dream big and you can make a difference!
