Cruz Company History
Cruz is a third generation family owned enterprise based in Roxbury, MA. Founded in 1948 by John “Bertie” Cruz, Jr., it has grown from two carpenters to a multi-discipline real estate company. The Cruz companies now consist of John B. Construction, Cruz Development Corporation and Cruz Management. Headed by Bertie’s son, John B. Cruz, III, the trio of companies strives to provide superior customer service and a quality product for its clients and tenants.
The John B. Cruz Construction Company is responsible for landmark projects and developments across the region; Cruz Development Corporation produces well-designed homes, maintaining the highest standards of workmanship, and; Cruz Management Company, Inc., provides quality residential housing management services.
In addition, Cruz is committed to building community through his charitable work and utilizing local vendors and subcontractors whenever possible. Cruz Cares is not just a motto, but Cruz’ social responsibility arm, a non-profit organization that exists to help Boston’s urban community.
