Joe Colapaolo

“Dare To Compare”


My family moved to Calgary in early 2016 and during the initial 4 months when I was here alone working and looking for a home, I must have looked at over 30 different houses.

It was only the house built by Joe and his team that had the right combination of an exceptional layout, number of rooms, location and craftsmanship that ticked all of our boxes.  More importantly, in the year after our purchase Joe was always available to address any minor modifications or touch-ups that we needed.

Overall we have been extremely happy with our purchase particularly now that we have seen the house withstand some pretty significant weather over 2 years without issue. I certainly would have not hesitation recommending Joe Colapaolo and Urban Domus Homes to anyone looking to buy or build a home.

We cannot say enough about how amazing our experience of having one of Joe’s houses has been.

Being new to Calgary, he not only made the house perfect for our family with unique and thoughtful design elements that incorporated our ideas but also made it feel like home from the beginning by helping us to get to know the house.

Not to mention that our house was ready ahead of schedule. Every day that we wake up in our new home, we feel so lucky to live in this space that is made for us. Joe continues to check in with us and is always available for questions.

He is the ultimate professional and we would recommend his homes to anyone who is looking for a stress-free, well-managed, and personalized building experience. Thank you Joe, for everything you have done for our family!

Urban Domus truly provides a premium product, in every regard.

We very much appreciate the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail put into the building of our home. We highly recommend viewing an Urban Domus in person as pictures don’t do it justice.

Joe has also been a tremendous help in the months after purchasing the home (it’s not advertised, but he basically comes with the home).

We don’t plan on moving any time soon, but plan to use Joe to build another dream-home for us when the time comes.

Thanks again.

I have had the pleasure of buying a spec home from Urban Domus and working with Mr. Joe Colapaolo. My home is well designed and well built. The commitment to quality and understanding of the importance of design make my Urban Domus house a place to call home. I have been in the real estate business for over 18 years and deal with many builders. I would not hesitate to recommend Urban Domus highly and without reservation.

Throughout the course of the acquisition and over the past year since I purchased my home, Mr. Joe Colapaolo has been a consummate professional. Subsequent to purchasing my home, I undertook some minor renovations which Joe helped facilitate. He has been responsive and reliable and always more than fair in his pricing. He has carefully selected his sub trades who, based on their responsiveness and attention to detail, clearly have the utmost respect for Joe.

If I am ever in the market to buy or build a new home, I would absolutely rely on Mr. Colapaolo and Urban Domus. It is with great pleasure that I put forward this letter of recommendation.

Urban Domus Developments is a rare find these days – Owner Joe Colapaolo who personally builds each home, is a man of his word who cares more about the details, quality and workmanship of your home than you could possibly expect from a builder.

In turn he attracts trades who share his values. Joe never took a short cut or the easy way out during the construction of our home. He is patient with the home owner yet he is action oriented and committed to deadlines.

I have no hesitation in recommending Joe and Urban Domus Developments to build your next home.

“My wife and I love our new home.”

We purchased a home from Urban Domus Custom Homes in early 2017. While moving from BC to Calgary, my wife and I looked at many homes in the inner communities of Calgary. We became disheartened as we couldn’t find a new spec home that met both of our wants and needs in the time crunch we were facing – that was until we found a new listing by Urban Domus.

We flew to Calgary on December 28th for our first viewing. The owner, Joe Colapaolo was shoveling the sidewalks and he came in to accompany us and our realtor. He went through every feature of the house in detail. It was like he was showing us a prized possession. My wife and I immediately fell in love with the home. The intricate details in all aspects of the woodwork, lighting and plumbing fixtures, and little extras was apparent throughout the home.

After we took possession, if there were any issues or we just needed explanations of how something worked, Joe was only a text message away and always responded very quickly. When we met with his trades people as they came by to explain a setting or correct a deficiency, it is so evident why Urban Domus is so successful. The attention to detail his team demonstrates is always apparent.

Thanks again to Joe and Randi at Urban Domus Custom Homes for building us a home we will love and enjoy for years to come. We have told everyone who has asked how pleased we are with our home, and will continue without hesitation to praise and recommend your company.

I was fortunate enough to buy a spec home from Joe in late 2013. The house was 80 percent done, but Joe worked with me to ensure the final details met my tastes. The house is exceptionally well laid out and the craftsmanship is excellent throughout.

In a city as busy as Calgary it is hard to find a builder who cares and takes the time to do things properly, Joe is one of the few who really care. Joe knows what he is doing and holds his trades to extremely high standards. He is an active manager and was on site almost every day.

The house was delivered on time and the final finishing exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to purchase another home from Joe or use him to build a custom home.

Urban Domus’ quality craftsmanship, construction, style and attention to detail is by far the best we have seen in the city.

After 6 months of looking for the perfect home, we were impressed immediately, as there is no denying they build a superior product. It’s no wonder their homes do not stay on the market for very long – they build luxurious homes that make you feel proud to own them.

In addition to the high caliber craftsmanship, we found Joe Colapaolo and his team of trades to be very attentive, professional, reliable and highly experienced. As a new homeowner you really couldn’t ask for more! Thank you Joe!
