Our History

Since its founding more than 30 years ago by David V. Johnson, Victor International Corporation and its affiliates have been in the business of creating exceptional residential and commercial developments.  The 43 developments and communities that are a part of the Victor International Corporation resume are proof of our company's passion and skill at creating communities that remain highly desirable.

The low-density communities we have been privileged to develop were realized by setting and exceeding standards for excellence, design and cooperation with local government entities.  With each new project, we have elevated standards for quality and use of the land within the community. 

We are proud of our portfolio, the processes we've used to facilitate the work, and of how these communities and commercial developments have matured.  All have been integral parts of the areas they serve, and remain highly desirable places to live and work.

An unwavering reputation for quality and luxury are two reasons Victor International residential and commercial developments remain desirable, prime locations.  here are some examples:
