New Vista Development President and Chapel Hill, North Carolina native, Kurt Mueller recognized at an early age his somewhat creative passions: music and the design/build process. His initiation into the construction industry was via volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity while a student at Chapel Hill High School. From there, Kurt worked summers and breaks on construction crews before graduating from the University of North Carolina at Ashville with Bachelor of Science Degrees in Jazz Guitar and Recording Arts. Upon receiving these diplomas, while still keeping one foot rooted in construction, Kurt spent eight years in the music industry running a recording studio and performing as an original member of the locally acclaimed Jumpstarts band. Although his love for music ran deep, Kurt felt in the mid ‘90s that the time was right to pursue his ardor for building homes; he thereby obtained his General Contractor’s License in 1998. Kurt’s creative abilities combined with his skills of interacting with clients and managing sub-contractors, schedules, and finances provided an excellent foundation upon which he has built his company, New Vista Development.
New Vista is a proud member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the North Carolina Home Builders Association, and the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties, where the company has been recognized for building excellence with Parade of Homes Awards. New Vista is also an active member of Green Home Builders of the Triangle (GHBT). The company’s involvement in this organization has resulted in participation in the GHBT Green Building Tour, allowing New Vista the opportunity to showcase product based on the Model Green Home Building Guidelines developed by the NAHB.
“My love of the creative design/build process, my terrific sub-contractors and employees, and my affiliation with first-rate professional organizations are huge assets for the company,” says Kurt. “The company goal with every client is to deliver an end product that surpasses expectations. I guarantee that the work of New Vista Development meets and exceeds the highest of industry and personal standards.”
