For over 50 years, real estate has been our legacy. We aim to continue building homes that deliver exceptional quality and have positive impacts on communities, contributing to the growth of the Greater Toronto Area.
Beginning with Gonte Construction, David Salomon created a culture that has continued over three generations. With Gonte Construction’s growth and diversification, David renamed the company Preston Group, which enabled us to develop a single Preston brand that encompasses all of our real estate activities. DBS operates under this Preston Group umbrella, continuing its development operations including project design, construction and customer care.
Born in Chmielnik, Poland in 1927, David was a holocaust survivor who immigrated to Toronto after the war looking to build a life for himself and his family. The Preston Group of companies carries forward his passion for development, work ethic, and focus on providing quality homes for residents.
Today, Toronto is among the world’s best cities, a status we are determined to help maintain for future generations. Toronto’s multicultural vibrancy is the result of contributions from entrepreneurs and immigrants like David. We understand that to continue attracting the best and the brightest from around the world, we must supply quality homes for newcomers who like David, are looking for somewhere to live and contribute to this city.
DBS is committed to leading the community into a greener more sustainable future.
We build homes to last. With a focus on sustainability, we provide homes that offer residents comfortable, carefree lifestyles. To achieve this goal, we work with exceptional architects and designers that provide innovative perspectives and intuitive designs.
Our mission is to positively impact and contribute to the communities that we build in.
As residents of the Toronto area ourselves, DBS strives to work with the community to create products that everyone can take pride in. We emphasize social responsibility throughout our corporate culture and this has translated into our reputation today. Through community involvement and empowerment, DBS has the ability to generate positive change, just as we have done for the past 50 years.
