Lakeside Builders and Developers

Meet the Builder
Charlie was recently awarded the coveted
"Builder of the Year"
award by the Rochester Home Builders Association

When Charlie Lissow, president of Lakeside Builders and Developers, Inc. constructs a home, it’s built to last and hold its value. Charlie has been in the building business his whole life. He started as a young boy cleaning up job sites and eventually learned skills in carpentry, framing and siding, each year adding to his technical expertise. The Jesuit style of education Charlie received from high school and college gave him the discipline he needed to learn all aspects of the home building industry. He soon was working as a construction superintendent, overseeing on-site functions for one of the nation’s largest building companies.

His commitment to four main principles: quality, service, performance and price led him to establish his own construction company, Lakeside Builders and Developers, Inc. For practically forty years, these values have and still form the foundation of a company that strives to respond to the individual needs of each of its customers. Charlie believes, “People are entitled to the best quality, no matter what price range they’re in. Our goal is a satisfied customer. It is the only way to ensure continued success.”

Charlie’s emphasis on excellence has helped to establish Lakeside Builders and Developers, Inc. as one of Rochester’s and Monroe County’s most respected and successful residential and commercial builders.

Charlie is a past president of the Rochester Home Builders Association as well as board member of the National Association of Home Builders. Charlie enjoys spending his free time on his boat with his wife of 27 years, son and daughter. Charlie is a member of the Rochester Yacht Club and has served on the Club’s board.
