Our Story

Terra Firma Builders, LLC was founded in August 2011 by Michael J. Rabena, Sr. and Courtney S. Rabena, born of a desire to offer their clients uncompromising excellence in construction. Michael and Courtney are graduates of Saint Joseph’s University (BS and MS) in Analytical Sciences and Education, respectively. Michael’s analytical background is evident in his approach to project cost and time projections. Every cost, milestone, and deadline are mapped out for each client before a contract is signed. This process is monitored throughout the duration of the project.
