Adam Fiorenza is the Founder of byFiorenza Communities, an adaptable real estate development and homebuilding company focusing primarily on single-family residential housing communities in the greater Charlotte area.
Adam entered the world of real estate working for a land development and homebuilding company, which provided him with the opportunity to learn the many disciplines involved in building residential communities. Over the course of his career, Adam has supervised every aspect of the acquisition, entitlement, engineering and development process for thousands of homes. Adam cofounded NewStyle Communities, an Epcon franchise focused on building active adult communities in Charlotte, Greenville and Columbia.
Several years later, Adam founded byFiorenza Communities to build communities with personality and purpose, and create a beautiful story for homebuyers. He feels passionately about doing what is right by people, working hard and never taking anything too seriously and hopes that homebuyers will experience feelings of being excited, proud, empowered, happy, accepted and feeling like they are a part of a family.

Ted Hill is Principal of byFiorenza Communities. A native of the Charlotte area, Ted brings more than 14 years of experience and a unique, valuable skillset to the team. His experience in commercial real estate spans all sectors.
Ted began his real estate career by renovating single-family homes and graduated to commercial real estate a couple years later. To date, he has participated in more than a half-billion dollars in transaction volume as both a principal and broker.
In developing new communities through byFiorenza, Ted enjoys creating a sense of community and improving the customer experience in the homebuying process, providing someone that will listen and communicate, and helping homebuyers feel a sense of relief that the process won’t be a nightmare as they had imagined.
Ted loves that byFiorenza Communities is unique in the market by being more thoughtful, more transparent and more nimble than most homebuilders by actually studying what buyers want and adapting accordingly.

Melanie Adams is the Community Curator for the Allston Community in Rock Hill, SC. Raised in the Midwest, Melanie brought her values, compassion and hard-working ethic to the South more than 18 years ago.
At Western Illinois University, Melanie majored in Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration, but after graduation, ended up working in the real estate industry. She started her career representing a local builder in the upstate of South Carolina and Western North Carolina, eventually expanding her knowledge base to Charlotte and the Piedmont of South Carolina. Working for builders gave her a unique insight to the beginning stages of homebuilding, from conception to construction to the homebuying process, providing her with vast knowledge in everything from the dirt to the shingles.
As a great listener, Melanie is very determined to create lasting relationships through excellent customer service. In her leisure time, Melanie loves spending time with her daughter and rescue pup Josie, traveling, music and concerts, football and participating in various community events.

Mike was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Northwestern University and graduated with a degree in Economics and Communication Studies. He played quarterback for the Wildcats and after graduation signed with the New England Patriots. After playing with the Patriots for 3 years he signed with the Hamilton Tigercats of the Canadian Football League where he played for 12 years. He won the Grey Cup Championship and was offensive MVP of the game.
After retiring from football in 1996 Mike and his family of 7 moved to Charlotte to start a new phase of his life. After a couple of years working in the advertising business, he started his career in new home sales and has been helping families build the home of their dreams ever since.
Mike is passionate about helping families throughout the building process. From walking the community to find the right home site to finding just the right home to build on that home site and making sure the interior finishes are just what they are looking for. His greatest pleasure is handing over the keys on closing day and watching the smiles on families faces as they cross the threshold to their brand-new home.
Mike enjoys spending time with his 7 children and 3 grandchildren whenever he can. In his free time, he likes to play golf, travel when he can and loves to cook.

byFiorenza Communities evolved from a deep commitment to building engaging communities and creating transparency in the homebuying process. We are driven by the opportunity to be part of the Charlotte region as it grows and evolves. There are so many cool things happening here; we’re excited to be a part of it.
We believe in engaging with customers at every step of their homebuying journey so they feel comfortable and heard. We use that information to develop storied communities where the architecture and master planning fuse together to create dynamic places families truly enjoy calling home. byFiorenza Communities are built on the premise that human relationships are their own kind of poetry.
